Is There A Doctor In The House?

No M.D. here.  Loads of useful information backed by trusted sources and links provided, though. But remember:  Information on this blog is intended for educational purposes and is not meant to diagnose, prevent or treat health conditions.  By all means, see a qualified health practitioner if you have specific questions about your medical care or history to find out what is best for you!

 So . . . Who Is Behind The Screen? 

Although I don't have the letters M.D. by my name nor am I a health care provider, I am a previous editor and researcher where I apply those skills to researching and sharing my enthusiasm on the subject of anything healthI am an admitted health news junkie because keeping you up-to-date on studies and discoveries is my jam! I am an obsessive list maker (a format I use a lot for you to quickly glean all those healthy bits) and link creator (so many great and trustworthy sources I tap into here).

My obsession partially began when my daughter was diagnosed very young with 13 food allergies. It was the catalyst to reviewing all food items with great care and depth. And, from there, it was my trajectory to pursuing a more healthy and balanced path for me and my family.

If you like, you can read a bit more about how I tick by tapping any of the links below:

or one of my favorite free ways to exercise with my family and enjoy nature.
Because I think stimulation and travel can be a big part of living healthier, consider bringing back these from your next travels
(and they don't weigh a thing!).
And because we can't forget our fur babies, if you are a dog lover (like our entire household),
don't miss how we take care of our beloved Giant Schnauzer
- the natural way

But, really, enough about me! I would so enjoy hearing about YOU, so, if you don't mind, I have a big favor to ask you . . .
