One of the most frequent questions I get from patients, particularly those dealing with a cancer diagnosis, is what I think about dairy. What I don’t like about “internet-medicine” is the sweeping generalizations that occur, such as: “Dairy Causes Inflammation/Cancer!” Does it? Like most things in healthcare the answer is more nuanced than a straight yes-or-no. Dairy is not inherently bad! This blog examines some of the variables, as well as relevant clinical studies, so patients can make informed choices about whether or not to include dairy in their diet.

Learn how to support mindful eating in everyday life by practicing being fully present, giving thanks, and savoring the experience of food.

Our brains have the remarkable capacity to adapt and change throughout our lives. This ability to form and reorganize neural pathways in response to learning, experience, injury, disease, or aging is called neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity helps the brain process sensory input along with creating suitable adaptive responses to stimuli. Neurons must have purpose to survive, and those with weak or ineffective connections are pruned. Through a variety of structural and molecular mechanisms, neurons compensate for injury or disease.
