Neti Pot

I recently came down with an annoying sinus issue. I was about three days into the nightly stuffy nose when I remembered that I had a neti pot in the house. Waking up at 2:00 AM because you can’t breathe isn’t fun.  It’s a great time to put the neti pot to the test. What… Read More

It is used much the same way as you would use toothpaste but it’s in powder form. Before purchasing and trying this product I did a little research… Read More

Bending Knees

The days of sneaking up the stairs to surprise the kids are over. Aside from the creaking boards on the 3rd and 7th step, my knees give me away long before I reach the third step. Over the years I’ve noticed a sand paper grinding sound in my knees. At first it was in the… Read More

Oh the Aching Cuboid!

Cuboid

As recently as three days ago I didn’t know what a cuboid was. After all, it’s a funny sounding name and when folks complain of aches and pains, you never hear about the cuboid.

Maybe it’s the Poop…

Belly Fat

This post is not for the squeamish. If you’re pretty close to your goal weight (I’d say within 10 to 20 pounds) and you seem to have excess belly bloat and your pant waist seems tight, maybe it’s the poop. Hear me out…I’ll try to start from the beginning. Quite some time ago when I… Read More

Fear of Colonoscopy

Well, after all of my recent posts on the colon, colon cancer and colonoscopies, I realized I hadn’t shared my experience with my life-changing event. The long and the short of it is that the prep work is the worst part and the actual colonoscopy was a breeze. The Prep Instructions There are several prep… Read More

Colon

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. Whichever way the diagnosis leads, it’s all good. If you are all clear, no polyps no tears, then that’s great. It’s a… Read More
