Eat Your Way To Brain Health

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been looking at ways to keep your brain healthy, especially as we move into our 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. I hope you’ve been enjoying it as much as I have. For me personally, now that I’ve crossed into my 50s, nourishing my brain has become as much a […]

Simple Tips For Managing Headaches

I hope you’ve been drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of water-rich foods since last week’s “Wellness Wednesday.” If you missed it, we talked about delicious summer-friendly foods that can help you keep hydrated during the blast-furnace months of a Florida summer.

Beat The Heat: Tasty Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

As we head into the hottest part of summer here in Southwest Florida, I’ve been thinking a lot about staying hydrated. I’m not talking about the 15-minute hydration that happens every afternoon around 4:00 if you happen to be standing outside.

One of the biggest frustrations I have is seeing how the medical/pharmaceutical industry manipulates healthcare in this country. I’m always encouraged when I see other nations take a stand for the truth – like many European nations have in the case of genetically-modified foods – but it just digs the knife in a little deeper […]

Fight The Flu And Win

Do you remember the swine flu? The bird flu? SARS? Ebola? H1N3? Remember the panic the news media created around each “outbreak,” even though there were fewer than a dozen cases of each in the US?
