Toe Nail Fungus-Not Today!

Diseases, Good products - Bad products

A new acquaintance, who showed up at my book signing for my first book, asked if there was anything in my book about toe nail fungus, ringworm and/or athlete’s foot. That information did not belong in my first book which is on Amazon by the  title of, How to Stop Cold Sore Outbreaks, and HSV-1, While Getting Youthful Skin.

The title represents just a portion of the information in the book, however, it does not cover topics about his inquiry.  I said I would put more health information in my next book; including the topic of ringworm and fungus and to include the source or reference materials; as I am not a know-it-all but rather a learn-it-all who passes on  information to others who may not have the time, or inclination, to do the research...

Dolly Parton’s Soon Coming Fragrance

General

This post originally appeared on December 11, 2020:

Dolly Parton is one of the most distinct beauty icons of the 20th and 21st centuries, and understandably, fans have long pleaded for the singer-songwriter, philanthropist, and philosopher (yeah, I said it) to launch her own  beauty line. Give us Dolly makeup, they cry. Bless us with Parton press-on nails, they beg. A ray of hope broke through the clouds when she recently told Allure, “Someday, I’m gonna have my own line of wigs and hair pieces.” So needless to say, we’ve been eagerly anticipating an official announcement. Meanwhile, we are waiting for Dolly’s soon promised fragrance to arrive.

Well, an official announcement has, in fact, been made, but Dolly Parton’s big foray into the beauty biz isn’t the hair, makeup, or nail collect...

Healthy Pets Healthy Humans

General, Good products - Bad products, Health and Wellness

So what do we do when our animals can’t stomach their dog food any longer? What does it mean when they are getting sick from kibble?  Everything else looks fine according to the veterinarian, yet a bland diet may be recommended she said. So that belies the question, what is good for my dog to eat, and what would not be good to feed my beloved canine?

At this point I was determined not to go back to the kibble. Kibble was first developed in 1945 by Purina. It has been shown to be a problem for animals over that time, and some people do believe it leads to animals having various illnesses such as cancer. Research from the University of Helsinki would say an affirmative to that statement...

12 Healthy Squash Recipes to Squash Your Hunger

Anti-Aging, Weight Loss

The produce section of your supermarket is stacked with acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash. These 12 healthy winter squash recipes (a misnomer because, like tomatoes, they’re actually fruit) can fill you up while delivering abundant quantities of fiber, vitamin A, potassium, magnesium and plant chemicals that may help you fight diabetes, heart disease and cancer, says Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

While summer squash is lightly flavored and watery, winter squash recipes are a rich nutty flavor and, in the case of butternut and acorn squash, a creamy texture that’s oh-so-satisfying it will squash your hunger. If you’re following a low-carb diet, you might be wondering if winter squash is approved...

Diseases, General, Good products - Bad products
Let’s face it ladies, toe nail fungus is unsightly but did you know it can also be a serious health hazzard as well? This problem can be very stubborn and often home remedies such as apple cider vinegar will not take care of every problem. Here is an alternative that you may really find helpful.

Companioa is a Caregiver’s New Best Friend

Anti-Aging, Diseases, General

There’s a caregiver crisis out there that almost no one is talking about.

According to the California Master Plan for Aging, recently released by the California Dept. of Aging, nearly five million Californians are unpaid family caregivers, helping their parents, spouses, and friends who need assistance with everyday tasks to live well in their homes and communities. Of these, almost 1.7 million are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia

Those caregiver numbers will only increase alongside the growing number of aging Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. By 2030, 10.8 million Californians will be an older adult (60+), making up one-quarter of the state’s population – and many of those individuals will need caregiving help.

Yet, more often than not, care...
