Superfoods For Super Women


By: Susan Jarvis Moody

Women multitask every minute of every day. Juggling and trying to balance work and home life is taxing, tiring, and stressful. Since we are doing double (and triple) duty, shouldn’t our foods be working just as hard? While it’s easy to grab takeout from the burger place down the street, we all know that we don’t feel our best after a lunch that’s full of saturated fat and carbohydrates. Since everyone from Oprah and Doctor OZ to Bethany and Cosmo Magazine are recommending super foods, how can we incorporate more of them into our diet?

Fundamentally, eating more fresh unprocessed food and replacing processed and artificially favored food will have an immediate effect on your health and well being...

Do Bikini Waxes Increase Your Risk of A STI?

Caution: Nudity

By: Susan Jarvis Moody

As if bathing suit season didn’t already give women anxiety, a new, small French study suggests that bikini waxes may make women (and men) more susceptible to sexually transmitted infections (STIs). A French dermatologist asked 30 patients infected with Molluscum Contagiosum, a painless, pox infection that presents itself as wartlike bumps, about their imitate grooming habits. Of these 30 patients, 93% of them participated in some bikini line maintenance, either shaving, trimming, or waxing unwanted hair.

Both dermatologists and infectious disease specialists agree that bikini line grooming makes women more vulnerable to infection, since it removes a layer of protection...

They’re getting less and less of a chance to affect lymph nodes, organs, and other parts of the body.

INCREASED EMPHASIS

Trends today are on the increase for more and more screenings and regular yearly mammograms. This fact has greatly increased the effectiveness of breast cancer treatment as well as the survival rate.

Female Abs: Quick and Fun


By: Toni Bella

Female abs; flat and firm, yet smooth and sexy, are not as difficult to achieve as many women think. With a little attention, we can have the tummy we want and the health that comes along with it.

The Necessity of Balancing Your Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fat


By: Jim O’Connell

A great deal continues to be written on the disease prevention benefits for vegetable oils in comparison with animal fats. It’s gotten to the point where the balance is now far to the side of vegetable oils in the standard Western diet, and the imbalance is putting us in greater threat for cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, just to name a few. We get a lot of these omega-6 fats in today’s diet from processed foods and vegetable oils, and instead of making us healthier it can be the reason for a lot of our health issues.

As we look at the intake of omega-6 fats as well as omega-3 fats, the key to ensuring these fats provide optimum health is the balance with the two. Although animal fats have gotten bad publicity, each is essential...

If you are going through some kind of emotional difficulty or if you have a mental health condition, psychotherapy is a treatment that you should heavily consider.
