Drink More Water

Not Sick Thirsty

I recently read the book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by Dr. Batmanghelidj, M.D.  As a result, I’ve been drinking more water. I always questioned the requirement to drink 8 8-oz of water daily. Even more outlandish was the requirement to drink the equivalent of ½ of your body weight in ounces of water. [...]

Red Meat and Hot Flashes

I don’t know if there is scientific proof that red meat contributes to menopausal hot flashes, but I do know that I gave up red meats a little over a month ago (June 18th) and within a couple of days the flashes began do diminish. After a couple of weeks they only occurred once or [...]
