I am finishing my doctorate in public health, with a background in public health and science, so I will incorporate some research into my posts -they are not just arbitrary rantings! So don't be surprised if you see some references at the end of a post. I also have dabbled in alternative health methods and will report back on my research and trials. I have also been fortunate enough to life a crazy, emotional, fun, scary, exciting, overwhelming, exhausting, motivating, and happy life journey that has taught me so much on being healthy whether that meant going to a workout class or finding the in season foods. I have been honored to have lived in multiple locations and traveled to multiple countries; I have been opened to many different cultures, diets, remedies, and products!
