Several of my patients have expressed an interest in trying the raw food lifestyle and want to know how they should go about it both to make their food as nutritious as possible and keep themselves safe as some foods should not be eaten raw. Here’s what I tell them.

When I tell them that there is a form of exercise that can help banish that stiffness and creaky joints, their response is often one of surprise. It’s true, though. That exercise is the ages-old practice of Yoga. Here’s why.
