[Male Menopause? Say it ain’t so!] Restore youthful levels of health & well-being!

Many people commented on last week’s ezine with my list of libido-boosting foods and my brother’s article on chocolate (at that same link)… and yes, several of you even tried some of his delicious and decadent chocolate recipes.
A few of you scolded me saying “aphrodisiacs” alone won’t bring back one’s youthful playfulness (I totally agree, there are a lot of lifestyle decisions that affect hormone health and thus one’s sexual health and libido).
And others said that a lack of libido in your relationship …

One woman’s secret to Healthy Aging

The Secret to Healthy Aging – Meet Rachel
Today I am talking to a client of mine who I have worked with on and off for a number of years.
Her name is Rachel Moore, and she is a healthy vibrant 61 year old woman. She’s also a successful business leader in the manufacturing arena, typically more of a man’s world, and has had to face numerous obstacles along the way.

Nourishing your gut for a healthier you

As we consider our health priorities, an important topic for all of us is our “gut” health. More and more research is supporting that gut health is intertwined in everything…and if our gut isn’t healthy it can make our bodies turn on us and can make us miserable and unhealthy in so many ways…
Some 2,500 years ago Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.”
He definitely knew what he was talking about and I agree that the single most important thing you can do …

Alkalinity, pH Balance & Designing the Optimal Keto-Alkaline Diet

“Your blood becomes more acidic when you eat all that meat!” the interviewee said, and I almost pulled off the road in consternation.
I was driving recently, listening to a well-known nutrition expert talk about an alkaline diet’s many benefits. I found myself nodding in agreement until she delved into murky – OK, completely inaccurate – science about an overly acidic diet wrecking your blood pH.

[Aging with vibrancy] Just give up, he’s had a long life!

10 years ago, when my father was 79 y.o., his doctors essentially told me to give up on him.
“He’s 79 Anna and has had a good life.”
His cardiologist had said.
I listened with polite respect, and then after I hung up, I got angry and busy!
My Dad had always been so vibrant
You see, my dad was down visiting from Philadelphia to visit us on St. Simons Island.  He’d had wheelchair assistance from airport check in to check out because he was …
