This past weekend, I was in the E.R because I thought I was having a stroke.
I was so scared!
I was afraid I was on my way out.
I wasn't ready to go.....
I was sad because- that morning I had a fight with my youngest son and hadn't had time to clean it up. There…Read more

What is Candida Albicans? Candida is a yeast that normally resides in the body in the digestive tract and vaginal.
Even though Candida is already present in the body, it can cause serious problems if the overgrowth becomes Candidiasis. Candidiasis is the name for a condition that results in the overproduction of a form of yeast normally found in the body at large levels. Candida overgrowth begins in the body due to exposure to antibiotics, chlorine, alcohol or other…Read more

In the late 1990s, my husband, my self and my in-laws attended one of our monthly Historical Madison County Society meetings, during which we were given a viewing of an old film shot around the county courthouse in the 1930s. What has remained stuck in my memory was this astonishing fact - there were nothing but lean and thin people present. Of course, there have been throughout history, some people who were "gravitationally challenged" - King Henry the VIII or "Chubby" of the Little…Read more
“When the seasons change, we experience a sympathetic internal shift. All life-forms open themselves up to receive cosmic redirection from nature during these crucial seasonal transitions, so we are likely to be more vulnerable and unsettled.”

Green vegetables are frequently missing in modern diets. Learning to include dark leafy greens into ones diet is very essential to establishing strong health. Nourishing yourself with greens naturally eradicate the foods that makes you ill. Greens help build your internal rainforest as well as strengthen the blood and respiratory system. Leafy green vegetables are very high-alkaline foods which may be beneficial to people exposed to higher amounts of pollution in metropolitan areas.…Read more

I had the amazing opportunity to be featured in an article in Natural Health magazine. Being mentioned by name in a magazine article and being able to share my story is extremely exciting to me but it is so much more than that. For years I have struggled with General Anxiety Disorder and at times it feels like it consumes my whole life. It is unbelievably frustrating and sometimes I feel like people think I’m crazy and don’t understand why I can’t just “get over it”. Trust me, anyone with…Read more

Another lesson from T'ai Chi Master, T.T.Liang:
"When practicing T'ai Chi, there are many techniques to concentrate on internally. First you have to pick one and use it for one round. Then use another for the next and so on. Gradually they will become second nature and you can concentrate on them all in one posture. Some of these concentration techniques are breathing, application, mind-intent and concentrating on various energy points on the body." ~…Read more

I've been studying T'ai Chi for a little over a year. Recently I bought a book of notes by one of the disciples of Master T.T. Liang, "Lessons With Master Liang" by Ray Hayward.
At first T'ai Chi frustrated me because it was so slow. It seemed I was learning at the pace of a snail, one posture per week on a good week. I'm discovering that it is an in-depth art.…Read more

Here's a great crock pot recipe. It's full of nutrients, low on calories and can be ready when you get home from work. It's also nice and warming on a cold, winter evening. My family enjoys it, especially with sticky rice. I'm thinking it will be good one day after the holiday parties are over to rejuvenate my body.

My husband and I have three parties to attend this weekend alone. One is at our house. However festive, December's pace is unrelenting. Combine the high-stress, lack of rest and poor diet during the holidays and it can be a recipe for health disaster. Recovery is not the best way to begin the new year.
But there are some things we can do to keep…Read more

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Hanukkah. Christmas, New Year’s Eve. The holiday madness begins in November and lasts through the New Year. I'm not a holiday grinch, but I cringe at the waste that comes from the holiday season every year. From Thanksgiving to New Years Day, household waste in the U.S. increases by more than 25%. The waste comes in the form of food, shopping bags, holiday cards, packaging, wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, and more. This adds up to an additional one million tons a…Read more
From the time I was a child, one of my gifts (or curses) was that my body talked to me. Not literally of course, but in subtle sensations that brought my focus to where it needed to be. I have always been hyper-attuned to it, and while I would often pay attention and give it the care it…Read more

How far will we go for beauty? Apparently, pretty far. I just recently heard about a product called Latisse. It helps your eyelashes grow longer. It originated from a group of popular medications called topical prostaglandins, drugs used for glaucoma patients. A side effect of this product is hypertrichosis, a condition characterized by darkening, thickening, and lengthening of the eyelashes. The product people use to lengthen their eyelashes is actually a side effect of a drug used to treat…Read more

The health benefits of cranberries are astounding. They're one of the top disease-fighting foods.
I love to try new a cranberry sauce each Thanksgiving, but almost every year I cook and can this recipe for Cranberry Apple Relish. It's a hit with the family and good for Christmas gifts too.

I read an article today that discussed how people who are generally happy in life tend to live longer than those who are not. They are less likely to catch a cold and when they do, they tend to report less severe symptoms. In addition, activities that increase our level of happiness or help express our happiness, such as laughter, have health-boosting effects similar to those that result from exercise. The challenge, however, is finding happiness that can outlive the struggle and pain we…Read more
