Oranges

Do these gout medications sound familiar? Indocin Colchicine Allopurinol Sulfinpyrazone Probenecid Naproxen I’m sure there are more, but anyone with gout has heard of at least one or two of the above medications.

After filling my head with more information than I could stand, I decided it was time to do something. Before I go any further, here’s a tip; although we shared the titles of food documentaries in the About Real Food post, don’t do like I did and watch all of them over a period of… Read More

Finding Real Food

Orange Slice

Throughout this blog, I’ll be using real food and whole food interchangeably. It is my opinion that most of the food found in the average grocery store isn’t real. It’s got more chemicals, preservatives and additives than real food. Let’s take Cool Whip for example. Wired magazine did an article about its ingredients. No sense… Read More

Real Food Adventures

This post used to be the “About” page on a blog I recently created. Instead of continuing with the new blog, I thought it would be better to combine the contents of that blog with this one.

Let me start this post by saying that I do not have a medical degree nor am I a medical practitioner.  I’m writing this post as one who used to suffer terribly from heartburn during the holiday season.  Year after year it seemed like I had an internal the alarm clock that was set to… Read More

Oh Those Pesky Hot Flashes

Hot Flashes

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… Read More
