Welcome To My Blog
I’m Dr. Steven Friedman, a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. I’ve also spent time in China being trained as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. I’ve been involved in administering wellness, health and preventative care services for over 35 years. Throughout my lifetime I’ve been involved in many different aspects of delivering acute care and service-oriented care but my love and philosophies coincide more so with preventative care.
I’ve experienced all the changes and theories in nutrition and fitness that have occurred within the past half century. For example, due to technology changes we are no longer required to toil at our jobs. Children sit for hours on computers, video games and cell phones rather playing the old hide n seek, kick the can and other active games.
Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke a researcher at Pennington Biomedical Research Center and also a Harvard study claims that a person needs to ambulate 6,000-10,000 steps per day to lower their death rate and this borders being active. Today most people are only taking 900-4,000 steps daily. This is considered sedentary.
We all know that obesity is at an all time high. Fifty years ago the obesity rate was in the single digits compared to most recently surpassing 30%.
As the amount of processed foods has increased in our daily diets we are consuming more chemicals and fewer nutrients. Nutrients are fundamental in keeping the body healthy and disease free.
My goal with writing this blog is to share my experience and knowledge to help others choose a healthier life style. I’d like to lead you down a healthier path and possibly ward off procedures and acute medical care that result from neglect or poor health practices.
We are bombarded with numerous theories on health and wellness out in cyberland that are often times confusing and contradictory. I desire sharing simple and user friendly quips on health and wellness to you and the masses of my audience.
I will be blogging on some basic principles of maintaining health and some of the controversial health issues that seem confusing or too sensational to be logical. I also hope to be able to comment on requests from my audience.
To your health,
