Kim’s Campari By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT “The classic Italian aperitivo drinks differ by region but usually include a mix with Aperol or Campari liquors.” An aperitif or aperitivo is roughly translated as “to open”. Diners are prepared for dinner delights and transition from the stress of the day to the well-deserved meal. What a great Happy Hour! As a part of my very long journey of transitioning my daily habits and discovering food intolerances, I have begun to appreciate the benefits that alcohol can give when directed correctly. Since that night of our fine restaurant review, aperitif has been […]

Food is Medicine – Benefits of Ghee By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT “Let medicine be thy food and let food be thy medicine” A term Hippocrates used to relay his belief that eating nutritious food is the basis for good health. For those of us with food allergies or intolerance, even the diets labeled as healthy or anti-inflammatory can still cause problems. A food allergy triggers the immune system to react to the proteins in a food and causes a histamine reaction. It is usually more severe and immediate reaction with a small amount of the food whereas food intolerance […]

Spinal Alignment By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Dr. Roger Sperry, Nobel Prize recipient for brain research, says “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine”. Only 10 percent has to do with thinking, metabolism, and healing. When your spine is out of alignment, your brain will take energy from your thinking, metabolism, and immune function to deal with abnormal gravity/posture relationships and processing. With regular exercise and knowledge of how the spine is supposed to be aligned, the body will have a better chance to work and function correctly. Exercise along […]

Rehab Your Asanas By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT When first practicing breathing, one should learn how to align the spine properly to maximize the free flow of energy and the proper muscle activation for breath control. Our spine has 3 natural curves: cervical, thoracic, and lumbar. We lose these curves over time with prolonged standing, sitting, and poor sleeping postures. Your breathing patterns can also become disrupted. A lot of us tend to be chest-only breathers, which limits the ability to fill the lungs. When you address spinal alignment and base all of your physical movements on the correct posture, […]

Road to Wellness, Part 2, Finding Nutrients By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Getting the most nutrients out of food can be a challenging job when what you eat needs to provide your body with the substances that will allow it to function at an optimal level. Just what is functioning at an optimal level? It has a variety of meanings; to me it reflects achieving internal balance and managing a gene to keep its influence under control. Learning a food style is a big part in learning to manage a disease process. Your genes can control what types of food […]

Road to Wellness, Part 1. Are You A Foodie? By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT A “foodie” is a person who has a refined interest in food. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger, says wikipedia.org. Agreed Wikipedia, I am a foodie! I have a refined interest in food to supply me with the right nutritional content and chose to eat out of a need for those reasons rather than convenience. And so should you! With summer on its way, many people are looking forward to upcoming bikini beach days […]

Improve Your Health Through Your Style: Using Your Body’s Senses By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Your style is your approach to how you view the world. The effects of your choice of styling may be adding additional stress to your life. Heavy necklaces and filled purses can continuously put a strain on your spine even if they are that perfect shade of turquoise that matches your outfit so well…Dang! STYLE to me is representative of who I am and what I am passionate about. I choose accessories for weight, size, ease of getting on and off, as well as color, […]

Compression Therapy: A Natural Pain Management Alternative By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Compression is the force of pressure used for reducing volume. Compression therapy utilizes this concept through applying material to your body that has a specific gradient pressure to compensate for any impairment the circulatory or lymphatic system may have. Its purpose is to provide an appropriate force to influence fluid to return to these systems rather than remaining in the skin. Your blood pressure is a commonly known diagnostic tool that is an indicator of how much strength your heart and circulatory system have to move blood freely. […]

Keeping An Open Mind “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” ― Albert Einstein By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Life is ever changing yet when it comes to bad habits, we tend to have difficulty changing. We can get stuck in a routine that’s hard to break free from. You try all the things that you know or believe work to help break a habit yet still it lingers. When nothing you try works, it may be time to step out of the box. Having an open mind means you are receptive to new ideas or arguments. Your […]

It contains different unique tools that you use alone or in conjunction with other tools. A therapist’s tool box may consist of different tests, a variety of therapeutic interventions such as different exercises, knowledge and other tools that we call modalities that we will use to help with a patient’s injury or […]

Inflammation By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT Inflammation ….. Latin “inflammo”, meaning “to set on fire, to torch, kindle”…. If you’re living with inflammation, these words have great meaning. Ancient Greeks describe it as the “internal fire”. Imagine walking over burning coals. Now imagine that feeling all over your body. According a MedicalNewsToday.com article, “Inflammation is the body’s attempt at self-protection; the aim being to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens – and begin the healing process” We can recognize inflammation after a cut or injury because the area becomes reddened, hot and often painful yet inflammation isn’t […]
