I recently stumbled across this site when looking for information related to digestive issues and beans. It's a really interesting site, that is scientifically-based yet lays information out in a way that the common person can understand. It has a range of topics, from health benefits of blueberries to what drink is the healthiest on an airplane (it's tea!). A site I would highly recommend! Alongside WebMD, of course!View Thread
I have a terrific resource for people who are physically active, especially outdoors. If you were to run into trouble (e.g. an accident--- you fall and sustain an injury; someone hits you while riding your bike or running/walking, you're older and have chest pains) someone needs to know your name and your emergency contact information. I thought about this while training for my first triathlons. What would happen if I had a problem in the water or the road whether I'm in my neighborhood or miles away? Then, I thought what if something were to happen at the gym or the park? So, I heard about this inexpensive way to help me feel more secure. It's called Road ID. It was originally meant for outdoor athletes but I have found it's great for everyone. I bought a couple of these and prefer the wrist version, although there are ankle and knee options as well. There is a customized engraved plate that's easy to read. Mine is a simple screaming yellow velcro strap with my name, my hubby's name and phone as well as my BFF's as a back up. Then you can even add a line of inspiration to power you through a challenging workout. I wear mine whenever I workout. It's waterproof and keeps me feeling secure that if, heaven forbid, something were to happen to me, people would know who to call. I think this is a really valuable resource and the only one out there. I would highly recommend everyone scope this out. Dr. PeekeView Thread
Over the past year I have lost 42 lbs. I have not tried to lose weight it is just happening. I have gone to 5 doctors and no one can tell me why. I have had all the blood test, upper GI, colonscopy, endoscopy, cancer tests and nothing shows up. I have gone from 130 lbs to 88 lbs. Does anyone out there have an answer? or can direct me to a Dr that may have treated this? Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.View Thread
