How Yoga Changes Your Body the
Day You Begin

yoga has become a modern-day symbol of peace,
serenity and well-being in the West. More than 20
million Americans practice yoga,
according to the 2012 Yoga in America study,
with practitioners spending more than $10 billion a
year on yoga-related products and classes.

Could Whey Protein Before or
With Meals Help Control Blood Sugar?
One of the keys to a healthier, longer life is
sustaining healthy blood sugar. Managing blood sugar
is different for every person, but it doesn’t have
to be difficult—in some cases, it can be as simple
as consuming whey protein before or with each meal.
The reason may be because whey protein stimulates
the production of hormones in the gut that help to
improve the efficiency of insulin needed to lower
blood glucose, according to recent research
published in the journal Diabetologia.
In the crossover trial, 15 subjects with type 2
diabetes consumed 50 grams of whey protein mixed
with water 30 minutes prior to meals on one day and
used a placebo drink prior to their meal another day
(1). The meal consisted of foods known to cause the
most dramatic spikes in blood sugar—high-glycemic
foods—such as white bread and jelly.

Pilates and Back Pain
Pilates exercises are commonplace at physical
therapy centers, chiropractors are recommending
Pilates, and "My back used to hurt all the time and
now I don't feel it anymore" is a phrase we hear a
lot from people who do Pilates consistently. So what
is it about Pilates that works so well for back pain
to continue reading.
What makes Pilates so effective is that it addresses
the underlying structural imbalances in the body
that lead to back pain. Issues like lack of core
support, pelvic instability, muscular imbalances,
poor posture, and lack of body awareness all effect
back health. They are also issues that the Pilates
method specializes in helping people improve.
