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.

Okay, calm down calm down!  I drink a soda too every now and again, but I saw this and it reminded me of something I wanted to post about here.  I'm not telling anyone they should never ever drink soda, even though cutting soda out completely would be MOST helpful to everyone's health, but I would like to say that the rate at which people drink soda today is alarming and I truly believe it has a great deal to do with the rise in cancer today, especially in women.  Nearly every single woman I ...

"I will never forget the moment an occupational therapist mentioned to me as I sat in her office with my overly sensitive, unnaturally emotional and – let’s just say it – difficult 3-year-old that perhaps artificial food dyes might be causing some of his “issues.” In my own 32 years, it had really never occurred to me that food had any relationship with behavior or health. Sure...

Let this be a reminder that it is okay to let the kids drink Kool-Aid instead of soda sometimes. Wow!  Of course Water is the best, but other than water....  Kool-Aid is a great next choice, just not the Jim Jones or modern media variety of course.  What you choose to drink it really important though.  Most people do not realize they could drop 5-10 lbs quickly by just cutting out the constant dosing of sugar via drinking sodas all day long.  For me, it's not so much soda as it is highly swee...
