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).

Let’s Talk About the Colon (again)

Let’s Talk About the Colon (again)

I started a small series on making small steps towards health but was side tracked. There are some things that have to be addressed before taking a few small steps towards health (I had to butt in with this colon post). Very recently after undergoing a colonoscopy, someone very dear to me was diagnosed with […]

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). If you have not had a colonoscopy and the following describes your lifestyle […]

What do you do when you’ve reached a point in your life where the sum of your earlier actions is resulting in less than stellar health?  You find the numbers on the scale are a bit higher than you’d like and your energy level is lower than you’d like.   How do you begin to reverse […]

Why is My Aluminum Foil Dissolving?

Why is My Aluminum Foil Dissolving?

| May 8, 2009 | 4 Comments

Back in the old days, aluminum foil was used to wrap just about everything.  Kids went to school with their lunch box fully packed with sandwiches wrapped in aluminum foil.  Pickles were wrapped in aluminum foil and so were the homemade snacks.  Just about everything we carried in our lunchbox was wrapped in aluminum foil […]

Where Did the Rocks Go?

Where Did the Rocks Go?

| April 23, 2009 | 0 Comments

I had convinced myself that no matter what the results from the brain calcification tests show, I was going to live a healthy and thankful life.  I had gotten used to the thought of making jokes about the rocks in my head.  I would blame every forgotten event, misplaced item and the occasional emotional rant […]

Here’s What I’ve Found about Brain Calcification

Here’s What I’ve Found about Brain Calcification

| April 18, 2009 | 0 Comments

I found so much information about it that I’ve decided to wait until I get the MRI results before I begin to worry.  It could be something and it could be nothing.  I’m leaning more towards the ‘it could be nothing’ trend of thought. However, since I mentioned that I would research it, here are […]

A little pressure emanating from the right side of my head along with numbness on the right side of my face finally made me pay a visit to the doctor.  I’m a healthy middle aged woman with little to no health issues (aside from the normal need to place the morning newspaper in the neighbor’s […]

Treating Asthma Naturally

Treating Asthma Naturally

| April 8, 2009 | 8 Comments

An asthma attack can be triggered by airborne allergens, food reactions or even burning the candle at both ends and not getting proper rest. A run down body is more susceptible to illness than a healthy rested one. It usually presents itself by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing. My son would have a harsh never ending cough. No matter how much cough medicine or tea I would give him, it would not resolve the cough. Anyone with a child that suffers from asthma recognizes the cough.

Do You Really Have to Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day?

Do You Really Have to Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day?

| April 2, 2009 | 0 Comments

Let me answer that question with some age old wisdom.  My parents told me the only things you HAVE to do in life is pay taxes and die (and of course, listen to my parents).  No where in that statement did they mention anything about drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Life Before 8 […]

Help Kids to Enjoy Fruits and Vegetables

| April 1, 2009 | 0 Comments

Parents know how difficult it is to get kids to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a week, never mind daily.  How many times have you emptied your trash only to find your child’s dinner serving of green peas, carrots, or vegetable du jour? The minute you turn your back, they get rid of […]
