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

Wild Arugula

I have two gardens.  One is a raised bed garden out in the yard and the other is a container garden on my back deck.  The one on my back deck gets more TLC than the one in the yard. Since the container garden is right outside of the kitchen it’s easy to tend to… Read More

Roll of Bone Broth Fat

I’ve written more than once about the benefits of bone broth. Aside from being delicious, it’s healing. I’m writing about it again today to encourage you to keep the bone broth fat. Often times when meandering around the internet, I see great bone broth recipes. Unfortunately, some of the recipes advise readers to toss off… Read More

Avocado Salad

A few days ago my daughter explained a very simple ketogenic lesson to me and it became my “Aha” moment. The explanation was so simple, yet poignant. She said, “If you want your body to become a fat burning machine, you have to feed it fat.” That was it. That statement caused lightbulbs to flash, birds… Read More

Leggy Plants

My sprouted seeds have legs and that’s not a good thing.  Apparently leggy seedlings mean they’re growing long legs in an attempt to find quality sunlight. Fortunately, it’s a lesson I’ve learned early in the season so I can go back to the drawing board early enough and still have veggies this year. Growing from… Read More

I’ve been doing some behind-the-scenes work on my blog.  Apparently, it isn’t so behind-the-scenes since my email program sent a ton of emails to you regarding my work. I apologize. Please ignore those emails (yes…all of them)… Read More

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense, like so many of the other essential oils, is a wonder oil! I think I’ll have to share more of my essential oil success stories. This story, however, was quite by accident. I frequently use essential oils in my diffusers, in my beauty products and cleaning products. And, because I’ve been blessed with a… Read More
