    I’ve been suffering a bit recently from the night sweats and was beginning to get rather desperate about it, due to lack of sleep etc. Then, miraculously enough, I came across the ‘cool pillow’ and decided to give it a go. It’s a strange beast as you have to initiate it by filling it with warm water from the tap and then leaving it for four hours (I only left it for 2 and it’s been fine ever since though …). Then you get rid of the excess air before sealing it up with the plug. At that point it’s operative and you don’t have to do the initial set-up…

    Lately I have not been in my good place as much as I like to be and usually am. Different elements in my life have been allowed to creep in to make me feel this way. I say ‘allowed’ because usually I am able to keep most of this at bay and not let it affect me for any length of time. I am not in my happy place. I need to get back to being Queen Bee. When I am in Queen Bee mode I feel I can do anything. I am productive, happy and full of energy. I laugh more, exercise more and sleep better. This weekend I am borrowing a friend’s cottage. My husband was going to come with me but had to…

    Rosacea impacts more than 16 million Americans, according to the National Rosacea Society (NRS). In fact, I am one of the million that deal with it. Still, most people don’t realize they have it. It’s a somewhat challenging issue since it is not entirely black and white in either the definition or treatment of it. According to actress Cynthia Nixon speaking on behalf of the National Rosacea Coalition: Rosacea not only affects the skin but the confidence of sufferers and from my own personal experience I know how debilitating its effects can be. Redness is one specific characteristic of…

    2 Aug 2015 | 4:18 am
    The diagnosis of menopause is usually made by menstrual and medical history, but sometimes may be made with the use of lab values. Lab values may include levels of follicle stimulating hormone, FSH, Estradiol estrogen, or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, TSH. The most common way to diagnose menopause is after 12 months of amenorrhea, or having no menstrual periods.

      Stress – the word alone can trigger a heightened response. We all have dealt with stress in our lives. Some of us even deal with it daily on a chronic level. Stress can have negative effects on your health, which in turn, adds to the amount of stress you have. It’s a vicious cycle. Has this happened to you? I personally can’t count the number of times my acne has flared up on my face after several stressful days or sleepless nights. Do you ever wonder why stress triggers health problems, including skin problems? I’ve been studying it in nursing school and want…
  • Why Coconut Oil Is Fantastic for Your Face and Hair

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    16 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    I’m a big fan of coconut oil for skin care. I chose to use it instead of the usual post-procedure ointments after a pretty deep facial laser procedure last month. My skin healed quickly and without any problems! This is a testament to the healing properties of coconut oil on damaged skin, if ever there was one! I recommend coconut oil for many skin problems, including to calm highly sensitive allergic skin problems, to help soothe scalp dermatitis, for people prone to staph skin infections, and for post-laser care. The Benefits of Coconut Oil on Skin I was asked recently if coconut oil can…
  • 3 Tips to Discover the Nutritional Magic in Red Bell Peppers (Yummy Recipe Included!)

    Years ago, I wish someone had told me that green bell peppers are really colored ones that have not fully ripened. I would have had a happier tummy and been able to enjoy bell peppers more if I had known to avoid green bell peppers. These unripe peppers were the cause of days-long stomachaches with indigestion accompanied with unpleasant burps that wouldn’t stop. Does this ever happen to you? Bell peppers are, of course, very good for us and quite tasty but… Tip #1: Green bell peppers are simply unripe red bell peppers that I believe shouldn’t be eaten. Many people don’t know that…

    Off-label drugs allow physicians to get around unreasonable FDA restrictions.

    Over 60 percent of divorces are initiated by women in their 40s, 50s or 60s — the menopause years — according to a recent survey conducted by AARP Magazine. Why are women running away from marriage? I wasn’t even married when I slammed into menopause months before my wedding day at the age of 47. Despite being completely in love, I almost ran away and my fiance almost married bridezella! Experts say the number one reason for divorce is lack of communication. My response from the ladies corner, “When everything you know to be normal is being kidnapped by changing hormones,…
