Women have a primal instinct to be attracted to the biggest, most bad-assed caveman. These early men offered protection and their toughness and virility made for a very sexually-attractive mate, who might produce strong and virile children more likely to be able to survive in the harsh conditions. Women are programmed to be attracted to men with high levels of testosterone as protectors and providers; unfortunately, high testosterone levels can sometimes correlate with bad boy behaviors like risk taking, aggression, violence, and sexual promiscuity.

About one third of women will experience chronic pelvic pain in their lives, but chronic pelvic pain can be hard to properly diagnose.

However, with persistence & the help of the right medical professionals, it is possible to find relief from chronic pelvic pain.

“People that make it, they’re humans too. We’re all just humans. One thing that all successful people have in common is the adversity they’ve overcome. They’ve broken the status quo; they’ve broken the rules; they’ve never let a naysayer stop them. Anyone who’s ever made it is just a person who has followed their dreams,” says Chris “Drama” Pfaff, star of MTV’s hit shows Fantasy Factory and Rob & Big.

If you’re like most women, you dread the gynecologist. It’s awkward, uncomfortable, and did we mention awkward?! Awkwardness aside, put a Pap smear on your to do list for this month. January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month and simple screening tests can literally save your life.
Every year in the United States, approximately 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer–and over 4,000 end up dying as a result. Most of these cases are preventable, as cervical cancer can be prevented or detected early on with a Pap smear or HPV test.

Jennifer Berman’s New York Times op-ed highlights why being an educated consumer of health care is vital. Ditch any doctor who tells you not to eat veggies (unless you’re allergic) & that candy and soda is better.
As someone who has had my life consumed by thyroid issues the past few years, I take health advocacy—especially thyroid health—very seriously, which is why I was pretty stunned by Jennifer Berman’s Opinionator piece in the New York Times. (Kale? Juicing? Trouble Ahead).
There’s a lot of misinformation on the Internet when it comes to hypothyroidism and “foods to avoid.” Now that it’s a hot topic, I’d like to kill not the kale, but the misinformation surrounding it.

They’re bad for your thyroid health!” are grossly misinformed. They’re citing outdated information that’s over 50 years old.

I’ve decided, 2014 is the year I work based off my soul’s desire; not based on lack, necessity, recognition, strategic moves, increased visibility or any of that nonsense.
Authenticity and writing from the heart are byproducts—mere consequences—of doing the real work.
When I create with heart, love and authenticity, it’s a magnet—the other things I want to see happen will happen on it’s own because I’m doing the work.
We cannot get results from the work we did not do.
