We all know that keeping the weight off is a bigger challenge than shedding a few pounds for a special event. That’s why it’s important to understand a diet plan is different than a diet.

If so, you’ve probably seen that most credible sources will tell you that weight loss and fitness are strongly related. If not, that’s what I’ll tell you now.

Calling a nurse hotline is the first step that should be taken to find the relief you need for the situation, and calling within the first day or two that symptoms appear. I have a dear friend that recently had a situation, being afraid it was appendicitis, that was not addressed in the first 48 hours and by the third day, she was barely able to walk, and wasn’t able to go to work either...

I had a friend, that worked all the time, or at least it seemed that way, on two different occasions her son was constipated, complaining of a stomach ache for a couple of days, not knowing if he had a bowel movement or not...

Having positive reinforcement is the only way to overcome any addiction you have and smoking is one of those addictions when you’ll need support to quit. I have heard time and time again, how people have tried several times, on several occasions, to quit smoking and there are several options to choose from ranging from gum to medications, even hypnosis.  I had a brief conversation with a friend in which I  haven’t corresponded with until we crossed paths recently and found that she had stopped smoking over a year ago...
