Raising awareness of primary peritoneal cancer

Raising awareness of primary peritoneal cancer

Three years ago, Leah White had never heard of primary peritoneal cancer. But then it hit home. Now she is an advocate focused on raising awareness of the disease...

Finding Food

Finding Food

OK, so you’ve committed to eating more organically. How do you find organic food that won’t break the bank or force you to drive to the Netherlands? Start with your local grocery store. Most stores carry organic brands and some even have organic aisles. Watch for sales, cut coupons and buy in bulk. You can find coupons in the newspaper, store circular and online direct from the manufacturers or on coupon websites...

Ovarian Cancer: Know your body and know the symptoms

Ovarian cancer is sometimes called the “silent killer” but a more appropriate description is a “disease that whispers” because most women do report symptoms, even those who are diagnosed at an early stage.

Teen drinking: It’s illegal—and dangerous

From the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Graduation is a time to celebrate. But before your graduate—high school or college—heads out to a party, take the time to talk with him or her about alcohol. It just may save a life...

Protect young eyes in the Technology Age

Whether it’s a tablet with an educational purpose or a big screen displaying the latest video game, the use of electronic technology is skyrocketing among kids. Unfortunately, all of that screen time can cause eye fatigue and ultimately have an impact on your child’s overall vision and eye health...

When eating and exercise become problematic

When eating and exercise become problematic

For Callie Good, it all started with giving up sweets for Lent. By the summer before her freshman year of high school, Good was diagnosed with anorexia...

An organic cheese curl is still a cheese curl

An organic cheese curl is still a cheese curl

When people ask me why we eat organically, I’m stumped. I’d like to spout off all the scientific studies and tragic case histories documenting the benefits of eating organically, but I’m horrible at remembering numbers and details. I can’t even pronounce, let alone recall, the names of specific ingredients in processed foods or the chemicals in pesticides that are killing us. All I know is that eating organically makes sense. I feel better and my kids are healthier for it...

Finding the Time

Finding the Time

Living and eating organically takes time. I won’t argue that isn’t true—in the beginning. You have to take the time to read labels, ask questions, and shop in new places. The first thing many people say is “I haven’t got time.” Here’s the thing, none of us has the time. We make the time. If it’s important you will make the time. I tell this to my husband when he says he has no time to workout, yet hits the snooze button three...

Sleep: from A to Zzzzzzz

Sleep: from A to Zzzzzzz

For many children, sleep disorders can be a lot more than just not wanting to go to bed. A National Sleep Foundation poll suggests that more than two out of every three children ages 10 and under have experienced some type of sleep problem...

Gardening anyone?

Gardening anyone?

This weekend we clipped the chickens’ wings. As much as I am opposed to clipping anyone’s wings, it was necessary because it is time to start the gardens. Now they won’t fly over the fence and ravage my garden. Luckily, chickens are incredibly forgetful (this seems like a kinder word than “stupid”) and in only a few days they’ll forget they ever roamed free on our range...
