Thwarting My Nemisis – Sciatica

sciatica pain

Last week I had to forgo my daily morning walks because my old nemesis decided to rear her ugly head. Yep, I’m talking about sciatica. It attempted to reclaim its old spot in my body. Wait a minute. Let me explain this properly. Sciatica didn’t just up and attack me one day. I threw the… Read more

Tattoo

My daughter decided to get a rather respectable size tattoo on her back. Because of the size and number of colors, it took more than one tattoo session to complete. For the record, I’m not crazy about tattoos, but she is of legal age and it’s her body, so what’s a mother to do but… Read more

Essential Oil Diffuser for the Car

What a nice idea! A vehicle essential oil diffuser. I don’t know about you, but I’m not too crazy about the inexpensive pine tree or other fresheners that folks hang from their rearview mirrors. The spray fresheners aren’t much better in my opinion. They’re supposed to make the car smell good, but either they’re too… Read more

Vitamin C and Coronavirus

Coronavirus

As a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, I feel it necessary to share publicly an article that I’ve been sharing privately among my friends and family.  I’ve mentioned the author, Andrew W.  Saul, in prior posts here on ADOH, but he deserves another shout out. I’ll get straight to the point.  I’m not only… Read more

Healing Sensitive Teeth Naturally

Smile

If you have sensitive teeth, you know what ice cream, coffee or even a cold piece of fruit can do. Just the thought of extreme temperatures coming into contact with sensitive teeth is enough to send shivers down my spine. Teeth and The Aging Process I thought sensitive teeth just like reading glasses was a… Read more

Healthy Back

Back health is important to everyone, but it wasn’t until I suffered for years with sciatica, that I realized just how important back health is. I shared my sciatica saga here on the blog. Fortunately, however, it’s been eight years since I’ve had a flareup. I owe the lack of sciatica pain to 1) awareness… Read more

Homemade Lip Balm

Lip Balm

With cold dry weather comes chapped lips. Chapped lips are not a given at this time of year, but just recently I woke up with the beginnings of a split lip. You know that annoying vertical cut in the lip that never seems to go away. The more you lick your lips the worse it… Read more

Lavender

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
