If you happen to find yourself spinning your wheels and frustrated about why you’re not losing weight and/or gaining muscle despite your dietary and exercise efforts, you may want to consider having your diurnal cortisol levels checked. Cortisol is a hormone secreted by your adrenal glands with many critical functions for survival. Chronic abnormal levels are catabolic and degenerating associated with a host of health issues, i.e., weight gain and fat loss resistance, muscle loss and weakness, bone loss, fatigue, depression, insulin resistance, accelerated aging, thyroid issue, and many diseases.

The goal of facial enhancement is always to mimic natural beauty and youth. With the advances of fillers, botox and non-surgical skin tightening devices it is no surprise why they are so popular.

Youth of all ages, but especially younger children, often find it hard to recognize and discuss what’s bothering them. As is often the case, just like with adults, changes in behavior may provide the cues that they’re overwhelmed. Common behavior changes in children and teens can include acting irritable or moody, withdrawing from activities that they usually enjoy, routinely expressing worry about a situation, complaining (more than usual) about school, getting tearful or fearful more easily than usual, or eating and sleeping more or less than they usually do. With teens, spending more time with their friends is normal and healthy. Be attuned to some more overt changes though – like significant parental avoidance, increased isolation, abandoning long-time friendships for new peer groups or expressing hostility towards basic family rules or towards certain family members. While resistance, striving for autonomy, seeking more independence and some of the normal “acting out” we often see with teens is to be expected, negative and sustained changes in behavior is almost always a clear indication that something is wrong.

This month, we, at Healthy Magazine, have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know the life and practice of Dr. Murthy Badiga, an influential and beloved Gastroenterologist in the Rio Grande Valley. He is a man who, through his hard work and brilliance, has managed to cross borders and overcome many obstacles, a trope that seems to be a recurring theme among many living in the Valley, Doctors and Patients alike.

He is an interesting character who’s seem to have taken life by the horns and let it do its thing, while obviously maintaining the strength to hold on through even the toughest bits
