Host Lynda LaCoax takes a look at the gallbladder and breaks down what the organ does, and how you can best take care of it to avoid unnecessary gallstones.
Shoes And Feet
Warm weather is finally here, and that means getting out and about and partaking in outdoor activities. In Middle Tennessee, a popular outdoor activity is hiking, including barefoot hiking. While you may own a nice pair of shoes, inserts, or other hiking gear, it helps to understand how your feet work and how the gear that you think may be helping, are actually restricting your feet, which can cause issues over time. Host Lynda LaCoax discusses how your feet develop over time, and to best take care of them while you stay active this summer.
