Body (Part 34), a.k.a., “Express Yourself” (….a “Tatted” Ladies Slideshow)

Taking my Bi-monthly break from my left-brained, "egghead" nutrition and health science, keeping myself balanced with that other side of my brain I love so much (as I'm sure is quite obvious :) )

But, it's a very healthy place to be, when one becomes so "well balanced" :) ……

The New [Superfood] Kids on the Block (Part 4): Camu Camu

I don't think vitamin supplementation is necessary when you find the right whole food nutrient sources.

Camu Camu, being very high in Vitamin C, eliminates the need for Vitamin C supplements, which is especially important, because most Vitamin C supplements are now made from GMO corn :(

Wheatgrass for a Healthy Living

…..a guest post, by Jenny Travens of

The growing popularity of wheatgrass in recent times signifies a greater than before confidence in the wonder-wheat plant.  The nutrient-rich food offers enormous health benefits which contribute toward its wide-spread usage and marked visibility across varied demographics.

The availability of wheatgrass, some time ago, was in a tight spot, but not now. Its advent to human health and fitness has largely driven manufacturers to ensure it is easily available, and in a variety of forms, via different sales channels.

Body, (Part 33) a.k.a. “Get To Know Ya” (The “Fit N’ Fashion” Slideshow)

Men’s Health: It’s “TIME” to take control of our Prostate Health

See, here's my problem with the medical industry……..

Many people think nothing of their health all year, then take a physical every year or two, and pray the doctor doesn't find anything.

If they do find something, we depend on the Medical Industry's man made medicines to heal us.
