Have you ever seen a couple that just didn’t seem to make sense? The man is stunningly attractive and the woman is puffy, overweight and tired-looking. Or vice versa. Maybe you have a friend who calls you every time she is going through a break-up but is nowhere to be found when you need her […]
The body is doing a lot of inner work to grow a baby. One of the healthiest things to see is a woman pregnant with her first child who takes the time to enjoy the process.
Can infrared saunas really help you sweat out the toxins? For thousands of years, many cultures have used heat bathing, to cleanse and heal the body.

Oprah Winfrey’s rise from difficult economic circumstances (largely through self-education) to undreamed of socioeconomic status is an inspiration to many. And it’s particularly heartening to think that she did this while helping millions of others improve their well being. Though Oprah’s story is particularly exceptional, the truth is that every one of us can attract wealth into our lives and improve our relationship with money.

And with cold and flu season upon us, I want to share some of the best ways I know to stay healthy naturally, and some natural ways you can treat symptoms so you can recover fast.
When I am anxious, nothing calms me more than trimming sections - ¼ inch at a time - from the bushes in my back yard. By the time I have gathered one hundred or so of these tiny specimens, my view of the world is righted and I feel confident in my ability to manage whatever is bothering me. Born when the moon was in Aries, activity is my soothing mechanism. For a person born with the moon in Gemini, information would bring about the same result. Who ever invented the term "comfort food" must have had the moon in Cancer!

Most importantly, electively removing your ovaries can mean an increased risk for fatal coronary artery disease, cognitive impairment, and Parkinson’s disease.
