Foods for Lung Health

Posted by:

Last September, Portland, Oregon, registered the poorest air quality in the world due to the raging fires in their state. Read that again… In. The. World. Anyone who spent that particular day outside in Portland had inhaled the equivalent of 15 cigarettes according to an Oregon news source. And that smoke has made its way across the country to Maine due to the jet streams. Add to that, COVID 19 which attacks the respiratory system. Add to that, seasonal allergies. ...

Health and Hatitude!

Posted by:

Sunny, warm days are upon us, and in this pandemic our need for fresh air, Vitamin D and exercise are ever important to our well-being. While it’s important to get the necessary Vitamin D from the sun each day, it’s also important to protect our skin, especially our tender scalps, face, eyes and ears. And why not be fashionable while we’re at it! It’s all about the “Hatitude!”

I’ve always been a hat girl, but especially since moving back to Denver ...

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. It’s simple. And it’s about remembering our Abundant Blessings, and being Grateful for all that is good in our lives. For many of you too, it’s about family, friends, food and connection.

Celebrating Five Years!

Posted by:

Five years ago this month I started this blog. I thought I’d write a year’s worth of posts and see where it went. So here I am five years later with over a hundred posts and hundreds of loyal readers! Who knew? Five years ago, I was a 10-year breast cancer survivor. This year, I hit the 15-year milestone!

Magnesium Matters!

Posted by:

In the past few months, several friends have commented on their insomnia, night leg cramps, depression, migraines and brain fog. Did you know that these can often be symptoms of magnesium deficiency? Did you know that magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body? It truly plays a big part in the health of one’s body.

Even when we think we’re getting enough nutrients through our food, we may actually be deficient. Outside of bone, the highest tissue ...

Naked as a Jaybird?

Posted by:

Deodorants vs. antiperspirants! A tricky, personal topic but certainly important when considering one’s daily hygiene!

And don’t we all seem to need it more now that the temps are rising and we are all a little “schweddy” these days 🙂 While we need a product that works, it’s also important to find one that doesn’t list ingredients that could potentially cause health issues down the road. And how about something for the active pre-teens in our lives that is also safe! ...

Who Loves YOU?

Posted by:

Today is Valentine’s Day…a day of romance and love. Now, more than ever, I am convinced that we can’t truly offer love to others unless we offer love to ourselves. Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “Valentine”. This year, how about marking the day with a commitment to loving one’s self in the coming year? I’m not going to muddle this post with any extra text, I just invite you to ...

Heal Yourself – Pain Management that Works!

Posted by:

What would you say if you knew that a pain management program had a remarkably high success rate? And what if the program could treat you without drugs or surgery? What if it’s also simple and involves no heavy equipment?  I’d say, “tell me more!”

While training for a summer week-long bike ride a few months ago, I injured my back. I was in major pain a mere month out from our trip. The fact that I have a childhood scoliosis ...
