Medical News Today – In-depth summaries of interesting research.
Science Daily Health News – Similar to Medical News Today, but with more summaries, and the writing is a bit more technical. This is my first source when I’m looking for interesting new research on health related topics.
Farmer’s Market Search – I’m a big supporter of eating local when possible. Farmers will be able to tell you how they grow their food and their produce is often cheaper or the same price as at the grocery store. See the last part of my article on Roundup in foods for why knowing what’s in your food is important.
Meetup.com – We’re spending more and more time online and working at home which means less opportunity to meet people and socialize. Community is part of an important foundation for health.
Local Fitness Centers – The monthly investment is worth it. Find one with classes that you are interested in and make the commitment to go at least 3 times per week.
FitBit – I don’t use one myself, but have lots of patients that do. Seeing how many steps you take in one day can be a great motivation to start moving your body. Like community, exercise/movement is an important foundation for health. Start at 5,000 steps and work your way up from there.
National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health – A reasonable source for information on integrative medicine, their online continuing education series is very good.
Council on Naturopathic Medical Education – The CNME accredits naturopathic medical schools. Currently there are only 7 accredited schools across the US and Canada. A naturopathic medical education is the most in-depth holistic medical program in the world.
PubMed – A searchable listing of the primary research published in indexed medical journals. If you see an article that you can’t get access to, ask your local library or medical library if there is a medical school close by. Oftentimes they can get you access to the article for free.
