It’s been a while since I’ve written here on A Dose of Health. It’s not that I’ve given up on health, it’s just that I’ve forgotten to write here. Now that I’m writing a new post, I feel I must write about something I’ve been using for several years now. The reason why I feel… Read more

Lift Rocks for Fitness

I realized several years ago that my fitness level improves much better with a gym alternative than with a gym membership. With a gym membership, I find excuses as to why I cannot or should not go (my foot hurts, my knee is bothering me or my shoulder is angry). Without a gym, I have… Read more

74 Years Old

Whenever I hear, “You look good for your age,” I usually do a bit of calibrating. How old does the person really think I am? What is his/her view on aging? How old is the person offering the compliment? How old does the person offering the compliment look? In America we glorify youth. Between cosmetic… Read more

30 Days No Veggies? Really?

No Veggies

The title of this blog post is a bit misleading. I’ve actually gone more than 30 days without eating veggies (more like 60 days), but that’s neither here nor there. If you would have told me several years or even several months ago that the human body could survive just fine without vegetables, I would… Read more

Looking Back on 2018

Goodbye 2018

I think I’m over the whole New Year’s Resolution phase of my life. When I was much younger I’d start the year with a laundry list of resolutions and never get further than 30 days in sticking with them. Sadly, I’m not unique in this practice. I believe it was a couple of years ago… Read more

Locs – No Comb, No Chemicals

Locs

I feel some type of way when I see/hear/read about chemicalized locs. I do understand that not everyone was blessed with very kinky hair. I also understand that we live in an impatient society. The combination of non-kinky hair and impatience is what I believe leads people to resort to various chemicals when transitioning to… Read more

Sugar: The Legal Drug

Sugar Cubes

My daughter asked me the other day, “What do you think is the most addictive drug?” I thought about it for a minute and said, “Crack/Cocaine.” She nodded her head thoughtfully and then said, “The most addictive drug isn’t classified as a drug. It’s perfectly legal and it claims its victims very young. The most… Read more

How’s Your Non-Physical Health?

Serenity7

A Dose of Health is mainly about recapturing our health one choice at a time by creating healthy habits. When I first started this blog I wrote mainly about physical health in the form of nutrition and a little bit about fitness. When good nutrition and fitness became a daily habit, I then branched out… Read more

A Long Road to Health

Health Journey

The journey to health is a long and winding road (thanks Beatles), but it’s well worth the trip. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything here. The reason I haven’t written is that I had nothing to say. Also, I’ve been busy with a host of other projects. One of my other projects… Read more

Clear Vision

My birthday gift to myself was a large annoying eye floater, a few flashes and not so clear vision. What was going on? I turn 60 and WHAM! My body starts to give me the blues! At first, I thought the floater was an annoying bug that kept following me. After all, I was sitting… Read more
