Felicia has learned the hard way that health, whether good or bad, is a result of daily choices and habits. On this blog Felicia shares what she's learned and the healthier choices she now makes as a result of her new knowledge. She hopes to encourage others to experiment to find alternative solutions to nagging problems (she's also is a bit of a tree hugger and likes to share ways to lighten the toxic burden on the environment).

I’m Addicted to Crack!

| October 31, 2009 | 2 Comments

I know this is a blog about health, so I thought I should come clean. I, Felicia, am a crack addict. I must get my “crack on” at least once a week or else I’m no good to the world. The crack I’m talking about is my chiropractic adjustment. There’s nothing like the sound of […]

Last week I found a dual use for my blood pressure cuff. Okay, let me back this up a bit. Quite some time ago I bought a blood pressure cuff. I can’t remember why. It might have been when my Mom was sick or when someone in the house was running borderline high blood pressure. […]

The Wonders of Vitamin K

The Wonders of Vitamin K

| August 27, 2009 | 2 Comments

As a result of one of my reader’s comments, I did a little research on Vitamin K. He suggested checking out vitamin K because I had shared my experience about my brain calcification scare. Thanks Stew for the heads up. Apparently vitamin K helps the blood to clot normally, and helps to prevent heart disease. […]

Are Gyms Really Necessary?

Are Gyms Really Necessary?

| July 28, 2009 | 0 Comments

This is really a rhetorical question. Gyms are a great place to workout, socialize, get motivated, increase physical fitness and, if you’re not careful waste a ton of money.

If you are anywhere near my age group, you ladies know what I’m talking about. I remember when I got my first hot flash oh about…3 years ago. At first I didn’t know what was going on. Eventually I realized that I was having a hot flash. Once I realized what was going on, I […]

Thin but Not Fit

The other day at the grocery store checkout line, I got to watch the thin woman in front of me place her items on the conveyor belt. She was dressed in white shorts and an aqua blue top. All of her clothes were form fitting. Although she had an attractive figure for an exceptionally thin […]

Well, after all of my recent posts on the colon, colon cancer and colonoscopies, I realized I hadn’t shared my experience with my life changing event. The long and the short of it is that the prep work is the worst part and the actual colonoscopy was a breeze. The Prep Instructions There are several […]

Unexpected Benefits of a Colonoscopy

There are a couple of good things that people don’t think about after having a colonoscopy. The first good thing is finding out whether or not you have a clean bill of health. Which ever way the diagnosis leads, it’s all good. If you are all clear, no polyps no tears, then that’s great. It’s […]

| June 11, 2009 | 0 Comments

First let me start this post by saying that I’m not an expert on colon cancer. My life has indirectly been affected by it so I get to vicariously experience what it can do. One of the first signs we noticed in hind sight was blood in or on the stool. If you think you […]
