Health & Wellness

Good health has always been an important goal for my husband and myself.  However, life happens and our health reflects it sometimes in ways like elevated blood pressure, excess body weight, and then all of the undesirable symptoms that come along with poor life choices.

I decided to add this section to my website to share with you some of the things that I have learned and am using to improve and hopefully increase the length of our lives so that we can continue to enjoy the good life in the country.

TAKE OWNERSHIP of your life!

Yes, we live in a world where people do not want to take full responsibility of their own health… and anything and everything that someone offers as information then becomes a target for lawsuits.  Therefore, I must give you this disclaimer so that you come into this section with the understanding that I am not a medical professional.  This is merely my opinion, and opinions of others who are also trying to find better health.  If you are unable to take ownership for your own health and decisions, PLEASE STOP NOW and exit this page.  This is not a place for you.  If you wish to continue, read the Medical Disclaimer below.

NOW… if you’ve put on your “big boy/girl pants” and are ready to take a look at some really neat information, we can get started…. and just a word of caution…. this is not a “diet plan”, a “how to” site,  or a place to learn how to drop “X” amount of pounds.  This is a journey into better health… a research project in the making by myself and my family.   When we do something that works for us, we’ll share that with you.  When we do something that doesn’t work for us, we’ll tell you about that too.   I firmly believe that there is no one-size-fits-all health plan for all people.  Our environments, lifestyles and a thousand different factors contribute to our personal need and therefore make it impossible to create an exact blueprint for health.  However, there are a number of studies and knowledge bases that we can tap into and learn more about creating a better life for ourselves, and that’s what I plan to share with you here.   As with everything I offer on this site, YOU are ultimately the creator, the architect of your own life and must find your own way.  If you find success in a way that totally does not work for me, I will still celebrate with you!  I ask that you do the same for me.
