As a vegetarian who is addicted to carbohydrates this article hit home for me. I truly want to make a change and have less bread in my life, but it is hard. Bread is addictive. And don’t get me started on rice and pasta lol . I’m definitely going to take some of the pointers that she suggest in the article and apply them to my rotation.

For so many individuals bread is not only a daily habit, it shows up at almost every meal. Subs, sandwiches, wraps, crackers, bagels, cereal, pizza and pasta are an unfortunate addition to the daily diet and are a significant contribution to the obesity epidemic today.
With a high percentage of the population suffering from gluten sensitivities we would all benefit from minimizing, or even better, eliminating bread products from our diet. If you suffer from bloating and allergies, I would venture to bet that if you eliminated all bread products for two weeks, you would feel dramatically better in a variety of ways.
My site is very natural hair driven, but my hair isn’t the only thing that is natural about me. I’m also a vegetarian who is always looking for natural ways to deal with everyday issues other than just my hair. This is a really good article with recommendations on natural pain relief. Sometimes after a workout i have knee pain. I’m hoping one the suggestions in this article will be able to help me with that and i hope you find the article helpful as well.

Pain is a delicate subject with my patients. When you’re suffering it can be difficult to express just how much it hurts. I’ve seen patients completely debilitated from chronic pain.
But Americans are tough. We don’t mind a little pain. As long as we can fight through it we don’t let it slow us down.
One thing you don’t want, though, is to take a pain reliever and have the side effect be worse than the original pain. And over-the-counter medications for pain have some pretty awful side effects.
In fact, the FDA requires all these pain remedies to come with a clear warning label making consumers aware of the risks for numbness, gastric bleeding, ulcers, allergic reactions and even liver failure.
African American/Black Women often say that they don’t workout because they don’t want to mess up their hair. I feel like your hair should never keep you from doing anything, especially when it comes to keeping yourself healthy. If you wear your hair natural it’s so freeing because you can workout, swim, walk in the rain (a light sprinkle), etc, without worry. Below is a good article on how to keep your hair workout friendly. I believe it should have given more natural hair options, but it’s a good article none the less. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Peace 🙂
Thinking about skipping the gym because you don’t want to mess up your hair? Well, fitness guru Donna Richardson Joyner has a message for you: Get over it!
“What good would it be if you had a fabulous ‘do but then we are visiting you in the hospital because you didn’t take care of yourself?” Richardson Joyner asks, adding, “if we think about our health like we think about our hair, we would be superfine and super fit.”
Richardson Joyner isn’t being insensitive; she understands the time and expense that comes with hair maintenance, especially when exercising daily. She also knows that many black women do work out.
But with a 2008 Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center study that found that one-third of black women surveyed forwent exercise because of hair care, coupled with statistics that point to higher percentages of black Americans as overweight or obese, Richardson Joyner says black women just aren’t in the position to gamble with their wellness.
