Sexual Health: A Woman’s Right

Recently, I posted a couple of articles on women's sexual health - not a complete series by any means. So, I thought it a good idea to throw a couple more points out there on the subject. It doesn't get much more girlie than talking about vaginas. The following article is a guest post by Vanessa Scott, a former vaginal surgery consultant who knows her stuff. We'll just call her the Vagina Expert, for now.

Is My Past Hurting My Health?

When I was the ripe old age of 13, I was introduced to the world of peer pressure. Along with that came smoking cigarettes. I thought I was cool, with it, or whatever you want to call it; sadly, I was mistaking. Throughout my teens and even into my twenties (except when I was pregnant), cigarettes remained a vice that I didn't want to give up. That is until I was getting sick all the time with chest infections and sore throats.

Why Do I Need Rest?

Here it is 7-something PM, and I am just now posting. Well, I apologize for the delay, but honestly, I'm glad that 1) my Internet modem was down; 2) my laptop needs a new mother board; and 3) my husband took his laptop to work for a Power Point presentation. You see, I got to spend a wonderful day of rest with my Missy Moo (the toddler girl) playing, eating, walking, and slumbering; which brings me to the topic of this post...rest and sleep.

How Healthy Am I…Really?

This week has been one of self-evaluation for me. I attended two health/anti-aging seminars that absolutely shattered my delusional mind-set that I was actually healthy. It's like the denial that comes when you know that you've gained weight but think if you don't get on the scale it won't be true. Well, I was doing that with my state of health.

How Do I Strengthen My Immune System?

I’m sure we’ve all heard that phrase at one time or another, but may not have associated it with the scheme of our overall health. The connection that’s being made is referring to our immune system, and this remarkable network determines what state of health we’re in at the present and what we’re setting the stage for in the near future.

I've spent some days, weeks and even months lying in bed waiting to feel better from various ailments. So, I know what it's like to ask, why am I always sick? It sucks!

Because of several of these quests, I have learned a little about what can make a woman ill. Though the following information may not now- or ever- pertain to you, I recommend that you hear me out.

Graston Technique: Soft Tissue Rescue

I was fortunate enough to experience this amazing treatment first hand through my chiripractor, Dr. Michael Tuckey. When he first recommended it for my daughter after a car accident, I was sceptical but open as she was in a lot of pain after being rear-ended by an overzealous teen driver. Her treament was extensive because of the amount of soft tissue damage; in the end she and I were pleasantly surprised by the results.

Relationships: Giving and Receiving

We all want a relationship where we feel fully loved, deeply understood, and deeply valued, and where we walk the journey in complete harmony with another. Many times we are looking to the other person to provide us with what we want and need, when in truth, we simply mirror that in which we give. We often have the idea that when the perfect person comes around, we will begin to be on our best behavior, and that we will change when we meet him or her.

Brain Health Evaluation

I recently did a post on memory loss and since decided to pursue ways to bring new health and life to my brain; it seems like a smart thing to do considering the alternative of chronic forgetfulness and even loss of brain cells. This trek that I'm on started with an evaluation of all the things that I did in my 20s and 30s when my mind seemed to be more like the proverbial steel trap than the bucket of mush it is now.
