Health & Exercise


by Julie Branstetter, Th.B. Good health and exercise have become more and more of an interest of mine. Heart disease is a huge problem for both women and men these days. Sometimes it can be related to congenital heart defects but other times, with good eating, drinking and exercise habits it can be avoided. As time goes on our metabolisms change. Having children, a busy schedule, and eating habits that aren't so great contribute to one's health and exercise taking a dive. So I plan to share as much as I can about good health and exercise habits, including tips on healthy weight loss and alternative herbal medicines that work. Some posts on pitfalls to avoid will help to keep us on the right track. Our health has to be a high priority if we plan to be effective in anyway. I'm not a doctor, I'm simply sharing my experiences in my blog. You should always do your own research and check with your doctor before making changes in your health practices. Guest posting is always welcomed.
