Ask Dr. Samantha: Food Tracking Edition

One of the most common things I investigate is how my patients and clients are fueling their bodies. After all, what we eat literally becomes who we are. Sometimes my they come to me saying they want to make dietary changes. And sometimes they come to me saying they are already eating very well, thank you and that they don’t need to address this.

But, thanks to 20 years of working with humans, I like to put this patient assumption to the test by asking each person to track their food…the truth is that most people aren’t eating anywhere near as healthfully as they think they are. If that’s ok with them…great. But most often people do want to eat more healthfully. And there is only one way to find out. Tracking.

And I get it, most people think it’s a mammoth pain in the ass to track your food. But it’s also just that important! In this Ask Dr. Samantha Video I go over three systems that will help even the busiest of people track their food, as well as why I think it’s one of the best things you can do for your overall health.

Let me know if you have any more ask Dr. Samantha questions about health or wellness — find me on social @DrSamanthaND or use the form here!

Rethinking Your Relationship with Stress

One of my favorite things to do with patients is to illustrate concepts with drawings (I actually do this across the desk and draw upside down which makes it even more fun…but I’m a dork like that!) For allergy patients I draw a nose sniffing a flower and then how the body responds with a cellular reaction, ultimately leading to a runny nose and sinus inflammation....

Why Mood is Affected by Less Sunlight & What to do About it

Even though spring is on the way, we are still dealing with our shorter, darker winter days. More darkness. Less sunlight.  Although I don’t mind winter, the turning inward, the quiet, the darkness, around this time every year my body and mood start responding to the long winter. Even if my introvert self likes the season, my body is ready for the sun. Ready to...

Be Flexible and Be Willing to Let Go

Look, see how much fun I had?! Don’t worry, Ian’s not creepy, he’s awesome! I had a fun and fabulous time recording some videos to help celebrate the publication of Overcoming Overwhelm for my publisher, Sounds True. Instead of flying out to their studio in Colorado (that would have been a lot of fun, but also a lot of missed patient time), we agreed that...
