Recently, I was given a gift certificate to a ritzy spa for my thirtieth birthday. For the past two months, I’ve held on to that little card with its elaborate curlicues, both enthralled and petrified by the idea of using it. As with…

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…

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…

Would you recognize the signs of a heart attack in yourself or a loved one? I thought I knew all of the signs and found out I was wrong.

I became motivated to educate myself as much as possible about heart disease which is the number one killer of women in the United States. I'm very passionate now…Continue

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……Continue

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…Continue

Home is where the heart is. Sometimes it gets a bit stuffy though. Every once in a while it seems the air in the house is stagnant and not very fresh. No wonder with all the chemicals we get from the fabrics, paint and furniture that is in our houses. With spring here it is time to freshen the air in your healthy home.

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.
