Living in the mountains for the past few years, one special love was to take quiet time walking through the woods.
Time alone hiking or walking the trails, lets you experience a calm, a sense of wonder and rejuvenation.
But along with all the beauty of nature, comes a threat.
Are you excited?
Of course, Spring is here and we are planning and getting geared up for a season of fun and adventure!
We've set up the tent, enjoyed time by the fire, laughed so hard it hurt, and now we are all settled in to fall asleep to the music of the nighttime sounds. Then it happens. The calm is gone and panic sets in. Read on...
I can remember reclining in the lounge chair, applying the baby oil and roasting like a chicken in the heat of the sun. Ahhh, young and dumb. We should know better, right? Well, if you are suffering from too much sun, here are "3" things that I have found that give you some relief.
If you found out that someone you loved was doing something that just has been shown to cause cancer, would you rush to tell them?
If all they had to do was stop using it, would you urge them to stop?
Yes, there is much that surrounds us in this day and age that may be cancer-causing, but wouldn't you at least TRY to avoid or stop those things you KNEW may kill you? Well I want to tell you something...
Wake. Work. Eat. Sleep.
Is that all there is?
Hopefully not. With Spring now enticing plants to bloom, birds to build nests and bringing relief from the winter cold -- it is time to reap the health benefits.
Even if it is only a half hour walk or lunch break outside, doctors agree, you need to get in the sunshine.
Here are 5 reasons why...
OK, so you are in the pool enjoying the sun and this guy comes over to you and states, "I just peed in the pool." Does that statement bother you? Of course!
As we love to seek relief in the pool this summer, beware of those public pools and hot tubs.
Who eats salmon? Well just about anyone that you ask will say, "ME! It's good for you."
And sure, I will answer the same way. For all we hear about is how, of all the different types of fish, salmon has received the most praise for being a nutritional marvel.
It is one of the most nutritious types of fish you can eat. It supplies iron, zinc, niacin, vitamin B6, B12, in addition to a whole host of other nutrients you need for good health.
So WHAT do I need to WARN you about?
Thinning hair - the words make us cringe. After all, your hair is one of the first things people notice about you. It can be caused by several things, such as stress (none of that you say?) or thyroid and hormone issues.
So after talking with the doctor and getting prescriptions for harsh chemicals, what else can you do?
Here are some natural alternatives that may help.
Thirteen cases of Candida auris (C. auris), a serious and sometimes fatal fungal infection that is emerging globally, have been identified in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Seven of the cases occurred between May 2013 and August 2016 and are described today in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). The other six cases were identified after the period covered by the report and are still under investigation. Read more, CLICK HERE to visit the CDC page.
Why does the word "fat" make everyone nervous?
Immediately they begin to think of the extra bulge they have around their waist or thighs. Fat has gotten a bad rap over the years and I am hear to say that I like fat, especially the "good" fat.
Certain fat has been wrongly suggested as food that we should avoid and can do harm to our health.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a combination of wheat and rye). This protein acts as a "glue" in foods such as cereal, bread and pasta, helping them hold their shape.
So "why" are so many eliminating gluten from their diet?
It is estimated that around 18 million people in the US have some form of gluten intolerance
which can cause MANY symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain, painful muscles and joints, headaches and skin rash.
It seems like almost each day we hear of someone that is suffering with a disease or ailment; and we all worry about our own state of health.
We all love summer since it's a time to get out and get some fresh air and much needed exercise. But American's are spending more time inside,
at the desk, and sitting in from of our TV's!
Counting every penny. Not squeezing every penny, but just using your money wisely may allow you to simply "live" versus just "existing" from paycheck to paycheck.
In light of this, I have a few suggestions to help you save money, then selling what you may have on hand.
What you no longer use or have interest in, may be something someone is willing to pay you for.
One person's trash is another persons treasure. We've all heard that before.
So let me tell you where you can research online for how much you can make...
Balance...it is hard to do anything if we do not have balance.
Walking, doing everyday basic needs become impossible.
Did you know that when we are in a heightened state of fear or anxiety we may be at higher risk for becoming unbalanced, having dizziness and having falls?
Why you ask? Well read on my friend...
Cable TV still has some great shows, but you no longer need to pay through the nose to get them — not when you can cut the cord.
But with no cable how can you access TV shows and movies? If you're determined to do so, your family still can watch thousands of TV shows and movies. Here is some info on "life after you cut the cord."
Whether you are at home, hiking or spending the weekend camping, you can suddenly get ear issues which can result in dizziness and diminished hearing which can just ruin your day. So please don't ignore your ears.
Neglecting Our Ears...
They came to the physician office several times during the year and the complaints were often the same. These were the patients who were complaining of dizziness, decreased hearing, ear pain, a plugged feeling in the ear, ringing and itching.
A quick look with the otoscope revealed the culprit. It looked like the Rock of Gibraltar was wedged inside the ear canal. Often when there is blockage or impaction, it is a result of wax getting pushed deep in the ear canal. Earwax blockage is one of the most common ear problems doctors see.
Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells. Your body usually takes care of these abnormal cells.
But if your immune system is suppressed, problems can arise. Cancer cells keep growing and spreading if our immune systems cannot control these abnormal cells. This post is in my simple explanation from my research and there is a link to videos below to help give you more info.
