I know – mornings are hard. For many of us, we need our coffee and often don’t have time for anything else. Between packing lunches, showers, getting kids fed, dressed and off to school and yourself off to work, where is there time to make a healthy breakfast, let alone EAT one? We researched delicious recipes in search of wonderful ways to start your morning that you can make ahead of time. These are some of my personal favorite:

Cancer is perhaps the most feared chronic disease in modern times, and as Siddhartha Mukherjee designates in his seminal work, the “Emperor of All Maladies”. Perhaps rightfully so. According to statistics from the American Cancer Society, the estimated number of new cancer cases in the US in 2016 will exceed 1.6 million, and estimated cancer deaths will reach nearly 600,000.(1) To understand how we can mitigate our risk for cancer in light of these rather daunting numbers, it is helpful to first understand exactly how cancer arises in the body.

It was once thought that massage therapy was contraindicated for people with cancer, across the board. Until recent years, massage students were taught it was one of the big “no-no's” in massage, without exception; and many doctors avoided the treatment because they didn't have a full understanding of how it could interact. But increased research over the last 20 years is showing that in most cases massage therapy is not only safe for cancer care, it's actually very beneficial. The concern once was that massage therapy may spread cancer cells based on its involvement with the circulatory system, but these concerns are unfounded. With advancements in our understanding, we now know there are more factors necessary for metastasis to occur, none of which are related to massage therapy.
