Rest is commonly understood to be important for recovery. It’s true that letting the body be at rest and getting sufficient quality sleep is a key to growing, improving, and maximizing your output potential.

Yes Wellness Blog - Fabulous Fungi: Embracing Mushrooms as Nutraceuticals Round here, most of us have our first introduction to mushrooms while discovering meadow mushrooms or eastern flat-topped agaricus growing in the backyard of our childhood homes. They’re definitely visually intriguing as they stand there conspicuously in a sea of green grass, and it’s quite natural to pick one or more of them and take them inside to show Mom and Dad what you’ve found in the backyard.

Yes Wellness Blog - Smart Under the Sun: The Benefits of Natural Sun Care Products Human beings were designed to spend a lot of time in the sun, and in fact the vast majority don’t do so nearly enough. That’s a reflection of our nearly entire departure from a hunter gatherer life if you want to stick to the evolutionary perspective angle, but from a more literal one most of us work indoors and are far too sedentary overall.

You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.

Yes Wellness Blog - Be the Exception: Ensuring Your Body Doesn’t Age Faster Than You Do

It has got to be one of the most common complaints, and one that’s heard from generation after generation as they ‘get on’ in life; the heart’s saying yes, but the body’s saying no.

Yes Wellness Blog - Standing Tall: Maintaining Bone Strength As You Age You’re likely all aware of the process of human evolution, and in particular how we’ve evolved over thousands of years from scooting along on all fours to walking upright the way we do today.

30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children are affected by allergies and the incidence of allergic reactions is on the rise.  In fact, allergic disease, such as asthma, is among the most common chronic diseases in Western societies.  Allergies are more than a minor annoyance; they can have very serious health consequences, most notably when anaphylaxis occurs.  Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction to medicine, food, insect bites, or environmental toxins and is a compelling reason to never take allergies lightly.
