Accepting My Natural Hair

Thankful

As my hair begins to grow, it’s coming into its own. As I learn how to care for my natural hair I’m getting more used to it. As a matter of fact, I’m liking it. Imagine that…after decades of wishing my hair wasn’t like it was, I’m happy with the hair God gave me. That’s… Read More

For the Love of Healthy Hair

Angela Davis

Since this blog is all about health, I felt it necessary to begin with a few posts on hair health. Realize that since I’m a woman of color I’m going to address it from my perspective. Some things may apply to other races/nationalities and some might not. Just wanted to get that out of the… Read More

To repair the condition I took Betaine HCL pills. The theory being that HCL taken with meals provides the necessary acid for the… Read More

Mouth Body Connection

The mouth is the gateway. It can be a gateway to blessings and health or curses and death. On a physical level, the mouth is the entryway for most of what we ingest. Most of us are aware of what we eat and how it tastes. What we’re not so aware of are the things… Read More

Plant

Yesterday I was browsing around one of my favorite websites, TED.com, and watched an interesting video about how to improve environmental air quality to help with respiratory problems. The gentleman in the video, Kamal Meattle, significantly improved his dwindling lung capacity through the use of plants. The video is only 4 minutes long and worth… Read More
