For the Love of Healthy Hair

Since this blog is all about health, I felt it necessary to begin with a few posts on hair health. Realize that since I’m a woman of color I’m going to address it from my perspective. Some things may apply to other races/nationalities and some might not. Just wanted to get that out of the […]

This is an odd post to place here on A Dose of Health, but I feel I need to post it anyway. I need to write this to explain to myself and to the few readers that stop by what I’m about to do and why. When I originally created A Dose of Health (ADOH) […]

I realize that I’m really enjoying food freedom. It took me several years (more like decades) to get here, but it sure feels good being here. I didn’t realize my current state of food freedom until my daughter came back for an extended visit. You see, she’s suffering from a case of bacterial imbalance in […]

One of the arguments against eating real organic food is that it’s expensive and requires too much preparation. Personally, I’d rather spend the money and time preparing food in my own home instead of suffering the accumulated effects of eating processed junk foods. The accumulated effects will land you in the doctor’s office if not […]

Frederick Douglass in his autobiography said, “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave.” Maya Angelou said, “When you know better, you do better.” I bring the wisdom of both mentors with me every time I go food shopping.

It’s the end of the year and I’ve been looking through this year’s blog posts. That was real easy to do since I only had 2 blog posts in 2016. To extend my stroll down memory lane, I decided to look through 2015’s posts. That was a little more labor intensive since I had a […]

TENS Unit – My New Friend in a Box

Some time ago my chiropractor suggested I purchase a TENS unit to help with tight muscles in the upper leg area. For those of you unfamiliar with a TENS unit it is a portable electronic stimulator unit. It stimulates nerves and muscles electronically.

Sciatica Update (and Hopefully My Last)

| November 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to deal with the excruciating pain of sciatica. Whenever I felt that all too familiar twinge, I’d massage the back of opposite hip and it would go away.
