The Latest from Dr Lohr on Facebook

I am seeing so many drug commercials on type 2 diabetes. I really hope that if you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or your doctors mentioned that your insulin or sugar levels are too high that you take a proactive approach to understand what you can do naturally to reverse this disease. Diabetes and other metabolic disorders don't just pop up one day. Visit your doctor, get your blood checked, and find out where you stand. 1 in 2 Americans will have diabetes by the year 2020. ...

Stressed out by being stressed out?

How many times this week have you said or thought “I’m so stressed out!!”. We use the phrase flippantly and accept chronic stress as part of our everyday lives. That is not a true statement. We choose how we let stress affect us. We also choose how to deal with stress in our lives. If you choose to do nothing and be stressed, then you will experience the negative side affects of stress. If you choose to deal with stress in a positive way (I’m not talking about grabbing a cupcake or frappuccino.) then you can reap the positive affects of stress in your life.
When we are stressed our bodies release cortisol and other hormones. This can be a good thing, but not if it’s happening all the time. Life isn’t perfect and at times we feel like it’s out of our control. Some things are, but YOU CONTROL HOW YOU DEAL WITH STRESS. Pay attention to the following tips of how you can deal with stress. CHOOSE to implement at least 1 of these into your life this week.
1. Sleep 7-9 hours per night.
2. Do yoga.
3. Get away from the box dinners and drive thru windows. Eat whole, healthy foods for energy.
4. Have dinner with a friend
5. Go for a walk outdoors.
6. Practice deep breathing by taking a deep breath in and out through your nose.
7. Write in a journal.
8. Get a massage
9. Do something nice for someone.
10. Smile (even if it’s for no reason).

It doesn't matter what you didn't accomplish yesterday. What matters today is that you decide to keep trying to achieve your goals. Don't let obstacles turn to excuses. ... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes the thing that holds us back from achieving our goals is not cost, schedule or motivations, but our lack of belief in ourself.

Let go of the self-doubt and pity today and start believing in the power of you.

You are worth it. You can achieve it. You can succeed.
Repeat those phrases to yourself, but replace "You" with "I".

Who doesn’t love to have fun? You can’t have fun if you are exhausted, stressed and run down from making poor nutrition and lifestyle choices. Increasing your steps per day by walking is a great way to incorporate more movement into your life without feeling guilty about not making it to the gym 3 times per week.
Using a pedometer will help you set goals and track your steps on a daily basis. There are also apps available on mobile devices that will track for you.
Some ways you can increase your steps per day:
1. Park further away
2. Take the long way.
3. When you get home spend 10 minutes putting things away around the house.
4. Take the first 10 minutes of your lunch break and walk with a group. After sitting for a long period of time this is a great way to rejuvenate.

Get Movin' Monday

Don’t look for quick results. Establish a lifestyle that will improve your quality of life for the long term. Chances are, whatever health struggles you have didn’t happen over night. Be patient with your body as it adjusts to new healthy changes you are making.

Do be proud of the small accomplishments you are making towards wellness. For example: You have taken your supplements daily for 3 weeks straight.

Don’t compare your wellness plan to everyone else’s. Everyone’s body is different and reacts differently to change. What is right for someone else, may not be right for you. Stick to your plan.

Do set goals and establish rewards for when you accomplish those goals.

Keep on movin’ forward!! Wellness can be like riding a bike. If you fall down, get back up and try, try again.

Wellness is about much more than diet and exercise. It’s about self care that complements your health care. Notice in this picture that self care, your lifestyle, comes first. You can’t expect the doctors to do all of the work when you don’t feel well. You have to take responsibility for your body. You only have 1 body and your quality of life can be as healthy or sick as you decide. ... See MoreSee Less

Water plays a role in every chemical reaction within our cells. It is the most accessible, cheapest way we can hydrate our body. We have no excuse for not drinking enough. If you don’t like the taste, add some lemon or lime to your glass to enhance the digestive benefits.

Who says being healthy is too expensive? Grab a water jug and bring it with you to the office daily so you can refill it whenever you need.

Can’t never could do anything. It’s the start of a new week so let’s start with a new attitude. Wellness isn’t just about what you feed your body, but it’s also about what you feed your mind. If you feed your mind with negative thoughts, you will get negative results.

Start your Monday off the right way with these two steps:

1. Right now turn to the coworker next to you and tell them something positive about themselves. You never know who needs to hear words of encouragement.

2. Tell yourself how great you are and that you CAN achieve your goals!

Let your inner light shine today and don’t hide it with negative thoughts.
