What Do Our Wrinkles Truly Reveal About Us?

Every time I look in the mirror, it seems another line has developed around or between my eyes. Is it lack of sleep, the stress of work and three kids, or could it possibly be the roadmap to my inner self?  If you ask anyone in North America, they’d tell you those wrinkles are simply a sign of age, and in the next breath, they’d refer you to their plastic surgeon.  But according to ancient Chinese medicine, those lines on your face may tell a deeper story about who you are, and may even provide a roadmap to the inner you....more

Finding a Good CAM Practitioner

How does one find a good Complementary and Alternative Medicine practitioner?  Typically, patients have conversations with friends about their health issues - their aches, their pains, their moods or headaches, and so on.

So the burden to find a CAM practitioner has traditionally fallen on the patient....more

Music is My Life

Music clears my mind after a long day of work or school. The internet gives me the resources to look for new music in the genre of my choice. I am in love with soul music, the melodies and lyrics speak to me. My favorites Jill Scott, John Legend, Erykah Badu, Trey Songz, Usher, R. Kelly and Anthony Hamilton.  Then there are times when I listen to John Mayer, there is this song called "Gravity" it has the sweetest tone and listen to it when I am feeling the blues. Hip hop is also in my iPod, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Drake, J.Cole, Wiz Khalifa, to name a few bump through my headphones....more
