Getting off the park bench

When it comes down to it, I have two choices.



1. I could sit here on this park bench, which is in the sunshine and giving me a much-needed boost of vitamin D. And I could read my book, which I have…

All I want is to see the sunshine for a little bit

When my doctor first diagnosed me with a vitamin D deficiency, he told me to go out into the sunlight more often. That advice sounded great in theory, but it wasn't realistic. I asked him when I was supposed to do that during my day. At my 5 am run, the sun isn't up yet. I work all day - even through my lunch time. I am in a lot of meetings and can't wander too far from my desk phone. When I get home, I make dinner and help get my son…

Exercise & Bone Health

Keeping our bodies healthy is an ongoing challenge and every minute it seems that new research reveals another approach to maintaining and improving our health.  A few basic facts have managed to stand the test of time, however, and one of these is the impact of exercise on maintaining our bone health.

Growing up as a child in the 80's, "Got milk?" was the…

Who had the worse night last night?

Waking up my son for school in the morning is better than the theater. There could be over-the-top goofiness and slapstick antics that is fun to watch (in small doses), or there could be the tears, accusations and casting of curses that you normally find in a Greek tragedy. Or it could be both.…

A secret Tip to Avoid Cavities in Kids

In my country, in India, many herbs are indivisible part of our lives One of such herb is Fennel Seeds. We eat  salted-roasted fennel seeds after every meal.

I always keep a bottle of fennel seeds in my handbag. Whenever my kids eat  sweet snacks, chocolates, caramel candies or anything at odd times which is usually during travel, at friends' or relatives' places I give my kids fennel seeds to eat after they finished with junk food. …

Learning to sleep well in childhood

When we brought our son home from the hospital, we decided to have him sleep his first night in his crib in his own room. We felt so wise in our decision, believing it to be important to teach our son that he sleeps in his room and we sleep in ours.



Our son, however, decided to start cluster feeding, so I was up with him all night, holding him. …

Putting your trust in your nose

Just like my mother, I have a sensitive nose (thanks, Mom!) I can smell all the smells - the good, the bad and the ugly. Because of this, I tend to avoid people who wear too-strong perfume or aftershave, and my very sweet husband seeks out my opinion before changing personal hygiene products to ensure they won't bother me (thanks, Love!).…

Why I Hope My Daughter Experiences Playing on a TEAM

I spent my entire childhood surrounded by impressive young women. I spent long bus rides with them. Laughed with them, ran with them, and cried with them. This week the gym I grew up playing in got torn down. Well, the whole school is getting torn down, but I could really care less about that. I mean, I'm happy the kids of that town are getting a new school. It was falling apart when I was there 10 years ago, definitely necessary. Yet, something about that filthy old gym getting torn down…

Measuring a life makes it less enjoyable

I've just woken up my son for school. He looks at me with blurry eyes and his hair is sticking out in every direction. He even still smells like sleep; to me, he is perfection. He yawns and asks me if I ran that morning. I confirm that I did and he immediately taps my fitbit to congratulate me on all my dots.…

Could your weight be affecting your memory?

I know a lot of things that affect my memory: My ability to concentrate on one thing at a time, the way I initially experience the memory, the amount of sleep I've had, and whether or not I've just entered a room. But I had no idea that my weight could affect it.…

Correcting the doctor's mistakes

I had a visit with my doctor in January and at the end of the visit, he told me that I was due to see him for my annual exam in March.



I knew this wasn't true. I recall the last time that I saw him was right after Thanksgiving. I remember us talking about holiday plans. I pointed this out to him, but he was…

How to avoid dehydration during early pregnancy?

Usually in most of countries, newly married woman has nausea she is asked if she was pregnant. It is because the nausea is first common symptom of pregnancy.

When Mommy needs a good, long cry

I had a bad day. Things didn't really go my way at work and they weren't going that well at home either. There comes a point where you really don't want to hear your family's critiques about the new recipe you just rushed home to prepare for them; you just want them to eat it.



My usual behavior when that…

The Health Wars

When I first started this blog, I began to do a lot of research into modern health. Actually, I am only a few credits short of completing my degree in Health Science, so this research was serving a dual purpose. And let me just say that I am absolutely not against modern Western medicine- even if I may sound a little “crunchy”…

Why I put oil in my coffee & how I lost 35 pounds

This morning I brewed my coffee and then poured it in the blender with a tablespoon of organic fair trade extra virgin coconut oil. 

"Making your oil slick again, eh?" my husband commented.

If someone had told me a year ago that I'd be drinking coffee with no sugar or half n half, I would've scoffed at…

Sharing a nap with Fido

When our cat was alive, she used to sleep in bed with us at night. I could count on her to nudge me in the middle of the night if I was snoring, crawl up next to me when she was having a bad dream and gently paw at me when she wanted me to wake up and feed her.…

Sharing the germs with your baby

My son was born via C-section. That definitely was not the way that I wanted to go, but that is the path we had to take. And at the end of the day, I had a healthy baby boy, so that is all that mattered to me. I did the skin-to-skin contact and breastfed him as soon as I was able because I had read so much research on those connections being important to a newborn.…

Depression is a social desease

When our most recent cat was still alive, I noticed that she would come and sit with me whenever I felt sad. I don't know how she knew that about me, but if I started to feel blue, she would hop up next to me (she was never a lap cat) and purr to let me know that I wasn't alone in the world and she had my back.…
