Sometimes we need to remember that we don't always know what is going on in the people's lives that we pass by or even interact with on a daily basis. We all have a path that we are traveling, and as a result of this we should remember to be kind to one another. Please take a few minutes to watch this amazing video put together by the Cleveland Clinic.

Hormone therapy has become a staple of my practice for better or worse. Women want BHRT because they want their lives back. It is hard to know what is best for each patient because genetics, lifestyle and numerous other factors play into the benefit/risk discussion for each woman. Research says that using hormones close to the onset of menopause is beneficial for heart protection. However, the same research says you should not use hormones longer than approximately 7-10 years as it can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

We all know that it is important to get out into nature, but often it is something that we just don't do. We come up with many excuses as to why we cannot go outside. Since 1984, Japanese researchers have been looking at the benefits of going out into nature on the human body.

The Environmental Workers Group has come out with their updated list of Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen fruits and vegetables for 2013. Make sure you update this list in your brain, or get the app for your smart phone so that you always know which fruits and veggies you should be buying organic.
This list is based on the fruits and veggies that have the highest amount of pesticides found with them. On the Dirty Dozen Plus list they list two other veggies that were found to be high in pesticides toxic to the nervous system.

Designed for the dump, needs to become designed to last. Prior to the technology that we have today, there were items that were passed down from generation to generation. Yes I know, often this was furniture. These items were designed not only to be used for one’s lifetime but also to be enjoyed by other generations to come.

The human body is a complex interworking of trillions upon trillions of cells, that can be looked at as an orchestra all playing the same musical piece in tune if everything is in balance. If there is an imbalance, think of it as the same orchestra sections all playing their own musical pieces. The challenge becomes figuring out what is the primary piece to be played and how to get everyone on that same piece. Sometimes it is an easy task and other times it can be challenging and frustrating.
