A pink ribbon has become the universal sign of breast cancer support. They are called awareness ribbons; symbols meant to show support or raise consciousness for a cause.

It seems everyone in the Sonoran Desert is affected by allergies this year. Even people that don’t usually have allergies are noticing symptoms.

Constipation is more common than most people think. And there are lots of things you can do to keep food moving right through you (without sticking around for too long). We’ve all heard to eat more prunes, right? But there are lots of things you can eat, drink, and do beyond prunes. Constipation is the […]

It’s my birthday week. I’m turning 55 this year. The only thing that bothers me about turning 55 is that I keep getting that song stuck in my head. You know the one. I can’t drive 55, by Sammy Hagar. I know…now it’s stuck in your head too! Did you ever wonder why we celebrate […]

Do you suffer from a loud negative nelly voice yelling at you from backstage? We all do sometimes.
