Tired of feeling worse than you should? Bloated, lethargic, sleep-deprived, anxious? The gastroenterologist Dr. Robin Rose left a thriving practice in Wilton to found Terrain Health because she was discouraged by a broken American healthcare system that practices McMedicine — medicine that emphasizes speed and price over quality and excellence. Terrain Health focuses on treating and preventing disease by integrating advanced testing and medical technology to reveal your unique biochemical individuality.
After a long winter and a year with more limited activity, many of us are eager to see our kids get back out there, playing sports and getting much needed physical activity!! That said, if your child is an athlete, you’re probably cheering them on one minute – and the next, holding your breath that they don’t get hurt.
Have you heard of sports overuse injuries? These injuries aren’t something you can see from the stands, like a collision or a fall. They start small, and are easy for athletes to ignore at first. If you catch this type of injury early enough, they’re no big deal. But if you wait, an overuse injury can turn into something serious – in the worst case, even impacting your child’s bone growth. So if you have an athlete in your life, what should they – and you – look for?
A lifelong venture capital investor turned a recent love for working with her hands into a cookie baking company, selling her gluten-free cookie dough on Instagram (@cookiesandsteak). Having left NYC officially when the pandemic hit, Chloe (mom to eight month old Beau!) has never looked back, believing Westport to be a little slice of heaven she feels so fortunate to have found. In her free time (while not baking!), Chloe loves a good beach run, a glass of red wine, and laughing with family and friends. She was a lacrosse player in college, and now spends her days having coffee with some of the top tech entrepreneurs in the world, and her nights with her family and the cookie Dough! Nothing could be better! Welcome to Westport Chloe; we’re so thrilled to have you – and your cookie dough!

If this last year has taught us anything, it’s that spending excess time with family can be HARD (while simultaneously wonderful), and also that we owe It to ourselves to pursue work that fulfills us. A lifelong actress and mom of two, Wynter’s newest movie, G-D Committee (featuring Julia Stiles and Kelsey Grammar) comes out soon, and most recently, she has also decided to pursue a long-time interest to become a family and marriage therapist and will start school this fall! Wynter left LA 12 years ago to join her husband in CT, and hasn’t looked back. She has loved the lazy mornings of this past year and enjoying her husband’s cooking, though longs for the days of travel and time with girlfriends! Thank you Wynter for reminding us all to take care of us; while it’s not always easy, it’s more important than ever!

During this time, it’s become more difficult for people with arthritis to get access to the treatments they’re used to. We’ve all got a million things to do and many of us are stuck in our homes (thanks, Coronavirus). Luckily, there are some simple things you can do at home to help manage your arthritis symptoms and feel better.
Welcome to our new normal. I’m a mom of two young boys in elementary school in Westport, CT, and due to a big outbreak of coronavirus here, we’re pretty much on lockdown. Schools and gyms are closed and restaurants are open for pick up/take out only. So, in addition to being a working mom, I’m now a homeschooler of two kids, a speech and occupational therapist, and a music, art, and Spanish teacher. One thing that’s keeping me sane (at least a little?!) during this unprecedented time is MOVEMENT. I am super grateful that it’s almost spring, and the weather is allowing us to get outdoors and PLAY. Even while social distancing, there are so many ways to keep moving!
