I love looking after kids, and overall, they seem to like me. I’ve been looking after this little one for most of his life. Tim is 4 years old now and even though he knows me, he rarely speaks. He just looks at me with those piercing eyes of his and occasionally gives me a little smile. One thing I do know, his mom tells me, is that he does like coming to the office to see Dr. Tony. He even calls our community pool outside the window Dr. Tony’s pool.

I had a client come in to see me the other day. This fellow is a high paid lawyer who works for the upper echelons on Parliament Hill here in Ottawa, Ontario. And when you work for the powers that be, whether in the Prime Minister’s office or one of the mandarins, you have to produce.
And you have to be sharp! Like a razor blade, your mind has to be functioning with all cylinders firing.

As we get into our 40′s and older, our bodies just don’t seem to keep up like they used to. In fact, we start going downhill even in our 30′s. We just

It seems that even though we are trying to do everything we can to stay young, we are aging. What’s going on?
Some us take multivitamins to stay healthy. And others run or jog religiously, all to stay young. But it doesn’t work. Arthritis, mood changes, loss of libido and even depression
