My tennis team stages a DRUG INTERVENTION

My team staged a drug intervention for me, last weekend. We participated in a tournament that, if we won it, gave us a wild-card seat at our Districts playoffs in August, without having to win our division. By Saturday at 7 p.m., I’d played three matches in less than 24 hours, and won all three. […]

My comments about preventive antibiotics, part 1 of 3

Disclaimer: I’m really conservative and avoid antibiotics, but I don’t tell people not to do what their doc says. I have strong opinions about antibiotics (AB’s) because of my experiences over a lifetime. I’ll tell you the nutshell version: I used to get strep as a kid, several times a year.

Happy Mother’s Day! on prenatal vitamins……

Mothers do the greatest work in the world! On this day, I’d like to say how thankful I am that Kincade, Emma, Mary Elizabeth, and Tennyson made me a mom, starting nearly 18 years ago. I love you guys so much. And thank you to anyone who reads this blog who does that work every […]

Another reason to be cautious about supplements

How many bottles of half-used supplements are on your shelves?   Tell me. I’ve got so many I bet it’s between 100 and 200.   I’ve been told for years and years to take this and that and the other thing.   I would try, but more often than not, I’d forget.   Now I’m […]

$ billions spent on useless cholesterol drugs

Millions of Americans are taking Vytorin or Zetia for heart disease.   And yet, full results were finally released last week of a failed trial showing absolutely NO benefit from these drugs.   Two Congressional panels have launched probes into why it took drug makers almost two years to release results!   I could save […]

Who you gonna call, Part VIII top-secret advice!

So I just wrecked the pedestal underneath the Fat Diet Docs and celebs, the personal trainers, the network marketers’ pills, potions, and juices, and the blood type and metabolic typing docs. I hope you’re not feeling without answers.   Moms write me and tell me they read about nutrition and go to bed in tears […]

Who you gonna call, Part IV: network-marketed juices, pills, candy, and skin creams . . .

The juices . . . Xango, Noni, Pharmanex, and some brand-new ones . . .   I’ll get some furious emails for this one, because the juice folks are plentiful and have absolute religious fervor about their $30 bottles of juice from the tippy tops of mountains half a world away.   There’s a new […]
