Inflammation: what you need to know.

As a health care provider, I talk about inflammation all the time. Chronic inflammation is really the foundation of all disease.

If you tuned in to my recent appearance on Afternoon Live with my dear friend and host of the show, Tra’Renee Chambers, you not only saw us drinking savory delicious martinis, but you heard me talk (preach?) about getting sugar out of your diet..and why?

Inflammation, friends.

SQUARE #2 : You Are What You Eat.

There is nothing I love more than being with my people.

So, when two of my girlfriends invited me last week to join them in downtown Salem to check out a new eatery and get caught up on the important things in life, it didn’t take much to convince me. Over cocktails and noshes, we share an evening filled with laughter, and even a few tears as we listen to each other’s stories and encourage each other on. It really was a magical night.

Our weather here in the northwest is fickle this time of year; bright sunshine one day, dark fog and sleeting rain the next. And the cherry blossoms have me in tears they are so beautiful. Change is happening all around us. The earth is literally growing. I’m so into it.

What Makes Your Heart Sing?

Know what I just did? I just now watched the 2018 Tony Awards - and they were amazing! They were filmed way back in June, but I hadn’t had an opportunity to watch until now. I laughed, I cried, I was amazed at the talent I saw on stage - the dancing, and oh, the voices! It was all wonderful, and made me so happy!

Today I want to talk to you about affirmations.

There are a few strategies to deal with the Basement Blues in Martinis & Menopause, and one of them is to use affirmations.
