One Size DOESN’T Fit All

I confess; I used to claim I loved studying what made people HEALTHY. Years of studying has created a sense of dizziness resulting from all the “flip-flopping” required to follow the guidelines that “research” has dictated. Is it the low fat or high fat diet that creates the best lab panel? Is it cardiovascular exercise […]

The Doctor Within

. As most of my followers realize, the topic of health and well being is a passion of mine that takes up a lot of my “brain space”  on a daily basis. I like to create, “What if” scenarios to better understand the body and its ability to handle everyday life. So today’s scenario is, […]
