Women’s Check-up Day—don’t make this mistake

Women’s Check-up Day—don’t make this mistake

  Today is National Women’s Check-up Day. Taking measures to make sure you don’t have any unknown health issues brewing, or to ensure that your health hasn’t worsened, is certainly a good idea.

Because even though you might...

Rates of this condition have skyrocketed since COVID

Rates of this condition have skyrocketed since COVID

  May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and that topic brings back vivid memories about my father from my childhood.  You see, in addition to dying of a massive heart attack at age 58 (when I was 15), my Dad was also an alcoholic.  I didn’t understand as a kid what may have been the driving force behind his drinking—all I knew was that I couldn’t have friends over because I was too embarrassed,...

7 Steps to a long, disease-free life

7 Steps to a long, disease-free life

  I hate to say this, but if you are interested in living a long, disease-free life, our modern healthcare system is not the way to do it. I thought this last Friday as I was walking into a local medical center for my bi-weekly acupuncture session.  All the people around me in the lobby were overweight, or could barely walk without pain, or looked like they were at death’s door. And of course, the...

10 ways to stop back pain without dangerous drugs

10 ways to stop back pain without dangerous drugs

  I’m very excited to announce that my daughter Danielle is getting married this weekend!  It’s hard to believe my baby (and my firstborn) is all grown up…and yes, I will be shedding many tears! There will be a party at my house, so needless to say, I’ve been running around like a madwoman this past week cleaning, doing yardwork and decorating. So…I wasn’t entirely surprised when I got some back pain last night.  Even...
