You may assume that feeling tired, depressed, mentally foggy, constipated and heavy are just due to your overstretched schedule, stress and sedentary lifestyle.

Getting physically fit isn't just a New Year’s resolution for the young. Research indicates that regular exercise and physical fitness are key to reducing many serious health risks and enjoying a long and active life. And it’s never too late to begin.
Ah, the beginning of another year, time to reflect and make resolutions. If you’re looking for suggestions, how about sitting down for family dinners? We’ve all seen the Norman Rockwell painting of the family sitting down for Thanksgiving. Multiple generations are ready to share the turkey. Just how they planned to carve that turkey at the dining room table has always been a mystery to me, but that’s another story. The message that picture sends is one of a family coming together for conversation and sustenance.

Most people experience back pain at some point in their life. In fact, back and neck pain are among the most common complaints made to primary-care physicians and orthopedic specialists.
You’ve seen the headlines on popular magazines about celebrities who get back their ‘pre-baby body’ within about a month or so of giving birth. Maybe some of them may just be blessed with exceptionally elastic skin; or they have time to do 500 abdominal crunches per day, as well as the ability to say no to every source of refined sugar—even at 2 a.m. when that doughnut looks awfully good while the little one is nursing.

The great villains of the obesity epidemic in America are sugar and starch. Or are they? Area experts say it may not be fair to characterize sugar and simple carbohydrates as the cause of our society’s weight woes.
So, last week the Ladue News staff was sitting around the conference room for a typical weekly meeting—you know, sipping Champagne and waiting for the mini-quiche to come out of the oven—when someone offered up a story idea: Why don’t we do a diet-and-nutrition series and extol the virtues of different diets? We could have doctors give their opinions. We could even have staffers try them out. Someone could do Weight Watchers, someone could do low-carb, Debbie could go gluten-free…

Remember the 1970s conversation pit, all sofa and no chairs? Well, in the newest spin on ‘social-able’ furniture arrangements, there’s nary a sofa to be found. Rather, designers are placing four beautiful chairs around a conversation-starting cocktail table or ottoman, like the revolving lazy Susan-style, black-lacquer tray shown here, which can be removed for serving or dinner on your lap.
