Working with Colic and Postpartum Depression

Colic is characterized by inconsolable crying that usually lasts for 3 or more hours a day, and several hours at night for no apparent reason.  You’ve checked all the obvious things, the diapers, is baby hungry? Too hot? Too cold? Fever? Teething?  Ears?  No matter what you do, baby is uncomfortable, and usually spitting up quite a bit after feedings.  Then the crying starts.  You try walking baby, sometimes that helps, but not for long.  Finally, exhausted…

How to Make Sunshine

Today we rose to a sun that was trying it's darndest to burn through the mist that shrouds the redwoods. It'd peek through momentarily, lighting up the whole living room, and within minutes hide again beyond the mist.



Finally at ten o'clock the…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

It's Me-Covery Time!

I love that term. But I can take no credit for it. Me-Covery is actually marketing-speak. It’s a term coined by well-known marketing firm, Saatchi & Saatchi, to describe how consumers are now looking for ways to take care of themselves (a recovery of self), especially following the financial and emotional hardships caused by our Great Recession.

Indeed, as overworked, overburdened, overstressed women, doesn’t a little ME-covery sound perfect just about……

My Review of Ear Candling



First, I should note that I am by no means an ear candling professional. Just an interested and curious young woman who is sharing her experience with it here.



Now I must admit, I laughed the first time I saw 'ear candling' in a natural health catalog. It reminded me of other super-essentials… Continue

Do You Do Your Own Medical Research Or Do You Leave It To Your Doc?

I do my own research and I think it's high time that doctors get used to us doing this. 



Doctors need to adjust to a reality that patients are actively engaging in their own care and should be treated as partners in their care. This means that at times the doctor may disagree with a patient's diagnoses and prognosis. Well as partners do, then the…

What's a Mom's Job?

One son living off formula and on a feeding tube and another son with hearing aids - this could’ve been me.  But it’s not.  Instead, I have a son who’s healthy and thriving and another who hears fine.  Where we lucky?  Did God simply smile done at us?  Yes.  But I also know that my children are lucky to have a mom.

 

Let me share with you what I heard when I walked into a doctor’s office.

Are You Kidding, Doc?

Experimenting with Ear Candling

The other night, all three babes in bed and fast asleep, my husband and I poured a little bowl of water, laid out a futon on the living room floor, and lit each others ears aflame! Ha, hot stuff!



I've read many tidbits about the benefits (and criticism) of ear candling these past few years and at long last wanted to give them a proper try. And it certainly couldn't hurt my husband, who quotes an article from a decade ago about "men not hearing women's voices due to pitch differences"… Continue

REDUCE STRESS: ATTACK EVERYTHING

That’s right. We can reduce stress by attacking everything. I’ll get to that in a minute. First, here’s how I see it. I love going to the doctor for - you name it headache, backpain, stomach issues, skin issues- with the diagnosis that it’s all due to stress. 

 

What is this catch all our doctors like to use? “Stress.” It seems to describe and explain everything. Usually, we deal with it by treating the symptom. Take a pill for the…
