    What to bring to a Barbeque!

    Close your eyes and imagine warm weather, a light breeze, the perfect summer day… June is always the time when we get excited for fresh foods and fresh air. It’s barbeque season. A time to savor those special moments when we spend time with our family and friends on the deck, grilling our favorite foods. It’s simple to eat healthy in the summer because there is an abundance of natural meats and vegetables and fruits. Often, these delicious and nutritious meals are paired with less healthy soft drinks. Here is a great recipe to make a delicious and immune...

  • One_Year_To_Live
    What if you only had one year to live?

    What would you do? What places would you visit? Who would you spend your time with? How many of you have contemplated this question? I mean seriously contemplated it to the point that you have identified all of the things that you are most passionate about and maybe even created a “100 Things to Do Before I Die” list. In our crazy, busy, jam-packed lives how many of us are just going through the motions. We work because we have to, but we’re not really that excited about our job and some of us may even hate our jobs....

  • Confidence
    Self-confidence is SEXY!

    Too many people think that being self-confident means you are cocky and disrespectful. Don’t get me wrong – there are people like that – but I wouldn’t call them self-confident. In fact, when I meet someone who is totally full of themselves, I find that it’s typically a total sham to cover up some major insecurities. That’s not confidence. Self-confidence is defined as: a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgment. To me, it means continually striving to make yourself a better person and enjoying the journey. But not in a demeaning, condescending, belittling way to others...

    Calling All Men… Are you STRESSED OUT?

    We know that even moderate levels of prolonged stress have countless negative effects on the body, including insomnia, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, headaches, GERD, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, heart issues, weight gain, decreased sex drive or erectile dysfunction and – yes – even cancer, to name just a few. It also takes a toll on the mind, creating memory impairment, confusion, mental exhaustion, a short fuse, detachment and anxiety, which can often lead to depression. Let’s Talk About Stress It’s stressful even thinking about stress, and for many men it’s even more stressful trying to talk about stress, because...

    Infertility, A Guy’s Perspective

    June is National Men’s Health Month. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, infertility affects both men and women equally. However, when it comes to diagnosis and treatment, women undergo a far more extensive process. For women, there are blood tests, internal exams, and discussions that delve into the personal and private details of their sex life. This is all just part of the diagnostic process that’s done prior to determining a treatment path that will require regimented dedication, and may include more invasive procedures. For men, when it comes time for testing and treatment, the process is...

    A New Definition of Intimacy at The Outlook Lodge

    Situated northwest of Colorado Springs at an elevation of 7800 feet, Green Mountain Falls has been a resort destination since the late 1800’s. The village rests along the historic Ute Pass, while Pike’s Peak, the area’s most recognizable attraction, rises in the distance. I remember the smell of the fresh air and pine trees and breathtaking views all around as we drove up steep, winding roads to get to The Outlook Lodge. The Outlook Lodge, originally constructed in 1889, has been re-imagined as a private, contemporary escape providing all the necessary creature comforts while maintaining a rustic simplicity. The...

    Being a Mindful Man in a Crazy World

    Every day in my practice I speak to patients about the significant role that stress plays in our lives. We discuss the tendency toward an overactive ‘fight or flight’ response within the nervous system and its downstream effect on nearly every other part of the body. We are constantly “fighting the bear” (usually many bears) throughout our waking day, and too often that evolves into broken and aggravated sleep at night. Most people, both men and women, can acknowledge this trend in their lives, but it is quite another thing to figure out what can be done about it....
