Menopause gets a bad rap and deservedly so, but some menopausal symptoms may not be caused by menopause. It might be because we’re not taking proper care of ourselves.

This Thanksgiving was very enlightening for me. My enlightenment had nothing to do with how to make a creamier cheesecake or the fact that my turkey brine resulted in a very moist tasty turkey, it had to do with how we age. According to my kids, I’m as old as dirt.  They asked me, “What […]

I recently had the dubious pleasure of discovering a new muscle in my body. The muscle is called the Tensor Fasciae Latae. This lovely little muscle is located in the hip area. If you haven’t discovered yours, count yourself lucky. How I discovered My Tensor Fasciae Latae I started running again. I decided to get […]

In 2006 I had my first confrontation with hot flashes. At first I didn’t know what the heck was going on. It couldn’t have been hot flashes, I was way too young (or so I thought). After coming to the shocking realization that I was actually having hot flashes, I started doing some research on […]

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.

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).

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 […]
