Monday Health & Wellness: Why I Use Herbal Remedies

By | February 17, 2014

Watch TV these days, and you’ll see someone making fun of herbal remedies. “Oh, are you one of those people who likes natural remedies?  What about homeopathy?  That’s like magic water, or voodoo.” Our culture isn’t exactly pro-natural-remedy.  And in fact, some go as far as to say that they don’t even work.  Or that they Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Stay Healthier This Holiday Season

By | November 25, 2013

Everywhere you look, you see it: “Indulge this holiday season!  Buy it, eat it, wear it!” and you also see a lot of “…but not too much!  Keep those holiday pounds off!” Misses the mark, a bit, I think.

Every Monday and I write about health and wellness.  I love the structure — something focused to start the week, but an open enough subject that I don’t get bored with it.  Except occasionally I get stuck and don’t know what topic to choose!
