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).

Are Gyms Really Necessary?

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I felt it necessary to interrupt my series on small steps towards health to advise anyone and everyone 50 years of age and older who has never had a colonoscopy to schedule one now (think of this post as a news bulletin).
