  By Carolyn “The Healthy Voyager” Scott Summer is just around the corner, and what’s more summer prep appropriate than camping? Whether you rough it, tent it, take a camper or an RV, you tend to not have all the comforts and accoutrement of home when you’re sleeping under the stars, which makes it very easy to fall into a rut of convenience store food, cooler snacks and campfire munchies.

By Giuliana Torre The key for optimum health is operating from the parasympathetic nervous system as opposed to the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The sympathetic nervous system is what activates the flight or fight response. It is triggered by stress, fear, caffeine, and just about anything else that causes the heart rate to increase and keeps us living on an adrenaline rush. For many of us, this is a state that is sustained all day… Read More >
