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.

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

| 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?

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 […]

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 […]

As I watched the Oprah show and saw 85 year old billionaire, David Murdock, go to Costco to purchase his fruits and vegetables for juicing, it brought to mind the question,”Should he be juicing non organic vegetables?”  By the way, I can’t be sure but it sure looks like he uses the Jack LaLanne Juicer […]

No Thanks, I’ll Have Butter

| March 24, 2009 | 7 Comments

Butter gets a bad rap, but in my book I’ll pick butter over margarine any day. I used to buy into the ‘margarine is better than butter’ hype, but no more.  Trans fat free and low in cholesterol spreads such as Promise and I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter, Country Crock and a host of […]
