How often do we hear someone say, “I’m depressed”? Are we really depressed? Maybe. According to the CDC, in 2008 there were approximately 8.4-10 percent of Americans reporting that they were depressed (Ross, n.d.). Fast forward to 2017 where the National Institutes of Mental Health (2018) reported an estimated 17.3 million adults, or 7.1%, adults in the United States as having suffered a major depressive episode.

Many times, skin conditions are due to allergens. But did you know that many of our skin conditions are simply due to a nutrient or vitamin insufficiency or deficiency?? Here are only some examples.

March is the national month for a multitude of diseases, including Brain Injury Awareness Month and Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. It is well known for National Women’s History Month, which gives us so much to talk about. But did you know that March is also National Sleep Awareness Month, and March 19 is World Sleep Day?

I remember growing up in a very large family. I had five brothers, and my cousins had seven sisters, and so on…Tons of cousins, spending summer days at my nanny’s house, staying outside until dark. I remember seeing all my uncles and aunts sitting around laughing, joking, and smoking outside in the yard. My grandmother sat there with a peaceful smile and quiet contentment on her face, while the rest of my 12+ uncles and aunts roared heartily into the night. 

 And now, they

As I was wondering what to write for Wellness Wednesday (alliteration not intended, lol), I kept coming back to Vitamin D. This is actually very fitting, considering its role in immunity (think COVID-19), its role in cancer (did you know that February is National Cancer Awareness Month?), and that African Americans are especially vulnerable to Vitamin D deficiency (let’s talk Black History Month).

In a hurry?  Skip to summary for the take home message.

When you’re stressed out, the foods that you’re turning to are most likely going to be traditional ‘comfort’ foods – think big meals, take-out, fatty foods, sweet foods, and alcohol. Let’s face it – we’ve all found some comfort in a tasty meal  when we’ve been stressed out or upset about something. However, this isn’t a good permanent solution. When you’re turning to unhealthy foods you can feel better temporarily, but in the  long run, you will feel worse. When your body

I praise you for a I am fearfully and wonderfully made ~Psalm 139:14

As we engage in a journey towards better health, we often focus on the outward appearance. When we begin to make healthier choices. we begin to change those things that are going on on the inside of us long before we see an outward change. 

Our weight gain is not just a lack of discipline but often symptomatic of something internal or emotional that has taken root in our hearts and minds. As you mediate o

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it 

1 Corinthians 10:13
