The old sayings goes that “Health is Wealth” and “Prevention is Key”. We are human and even the most rational beings will let things fester or delay taking care of a suspicious ailment out of sheer terror of what it could be.

As natural as it is to delay finding out the truth about health, it is natural to say that we don’t realize it until it’s too late that the best gift of life is to be healthy. There […]

Many of us reach for our phones and then we are immediately sucked […]

You become a little less jaded with the world and start to embrace the season more than you ever have since you were a child yourself. That aside, the truth is that parents are humans and people, too. The holiday season means long breaks from school. Working parents have to arrange […]
