If you are looking for information, opinion or light entertainment, we love to get on our soapbox. Whether it’s on diets (how many calories?), or exercise (the benefits of running), or cleansing (who has parasites?), or supplementing (is it necessary?), there’s sure to be an article for everyone. We don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we are committed to planting enough seeds of knowledge to inspire you to think for yourself.

I have been working to heal my body for over 25 years now. As I am approaching 60, I feel good. But I don't feel GREAT! And given my current lifestyle, I think I should feel GREAT! Hence my continual search for products, practitioners, protocols. My last visit to my natural health care practitioner left me reeling, however. The remnants of a long-ago lyme infection? Me? Is that why I haven't been able to make the leap from good to great? Well, she's got me on a 30-day protocol...so I should know by then if I'm making progress.

The Problem Of The Period
As women, we are blessed...or cursed... with monthly periods. Normally, this monthly cycle should not be much more than a minor inconvenience. But in talking to a number of friends and seeing the stories on social media, it appears that this normal cycle is not at all that normal anymore. As a result, many women are resorting to what I consider desperate measures - taking birth control pills in order to regulate hormones and 'normalize' their cycle. I certainly understand their desperation, given that and out-of-control cycle can have moderate to severe quality of life implications. Trust me, I've been there and I've done that. But there must be a better way...

A day without running is like a day without sunshine. Or something like that. I love my running, but it's especially sweet on a glorious spring morning in the sunshine. In my experience, people either love running or they hate it. I love it. The world always looks brighter in the springtime, after a long miserable winter. Or even after a short and easy winter. All I know is that the beautiful and uplifting feeling that I get from a springtime morning run lasts long into my day. How does it get any better than that?

We live in a world of instant gratification. You can get some instant results from pharmaceuticals, but they can come with long-term side effects which can eventually require more pharmaceuticals for those unintended consequences. Listen closely to the pharmaceutical ads and notice the potential side effects. And then ask yourself if any of those issues are things that you want to deal with in the future. As the Queen song goes - "I Want It All, And I Want It Now". Health, however, is an inside job and it's a long-term affair. And the choices are always yours to make.

The Gaslighting of Chronic Lyme Patients Has to Stop - by Lori Dennis
Lori Dennis is a Psychotherapist, but more importantly, a mother with a son afflicted by chronic Lyme Disease. When I met Lori at a retreat a couple of months back, I had heard of Lyme Disease but I really had no clear idea of what a struggle it can be just to get a diagnosis, never mind treatment. As a mother and an advocate of natural health options, however, I can certainly relate to Lori's relentless quest for answers and her refusal to take 'no' for an answer. Lori's book, LYME MADNESS™ is available on Amazon.com. http://amzn.to/2fVkW7v
