Here are some of the review for my book (maybe you will leave one too – much appreciated!):

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC Book!

Really great book! Equal parts raw memoir, practical suggestions, and positivity. The book itself is a fantastic read, but the list of resources at the end of the book is worth the price of this book alone! If you purchase the electronic book, be sure to click on all the links provided. There are many, many hours of extra information contained in practically every link, so when you take that into consideration, this book is a STEAL for all hundreds of hours of information and resources you get out it it!

“I would give this book 4⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (on a four star scale)  And would/will be recommending it for all to read.”

Sleep is pretty important.  In fact, too little of it makes us sick, according to recent research.
From Fortune.com:

“In an interview with The Guardian, Matthew Walker, Director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley, explains how.

Through his work, he’s determined that people who don’t get enough sleep tend to be less healthy and have lower energy levels than those who get the recommended amount of shut eye per night. After analyzing the results of 20 separate studies, he’s found a strong correlation between how much people sleep and how long they live. In summary: The less you sleep, the shorter your life will be.

In one study, for instance, adults age 45 and older that slept less than 6 hours each night were 200% more likely to have a heart attack or stroke during their lifetime compared to participants who got seven or eight hours. In other studies, sleeping less has been associated with an increased risk of weight gain, developing Alzheimers, and relapses in addition disorders. On a basic level, lack of sleep also lowered participants’ immune systems.
‘People use alarms to wake up,” Walker told The Guardian.
“So why don’t we have a bedtime alarm to tell us we’ve got half an hour, that we should start cycling down?’

How can you get more sleep?  Here are my tips for elevating rest…
Most of us skimp on sleep for one reason or another, or we find that circumstances might prevent us from getting the sleep we need: partners, pets, seasons, illness, etc.
Winter Sleep:
I try to work with the light and seasons and sometimes go to be earlier in the colder months.  I also make sure I am warm enough in terms of sleep wear (using satin or flannel pajamas) but I keep the thermostat lower.   Making sure I get enough natural light during the day seems to help too, as does getting up close to the same time every day, and soaking in the morning sun.  I live in the Pacific Northwest, so we have a lot of skylights to let more sun into our homes.  Skylights really come in handy in the winter months.  You may wish to try a sunlamp as well to get more light exposure.  
Light sources of any kind can disrupt melatonin production.  I try to make my room as dark as possible, without obsessing over it.  Covering your eyes with a sleep mask may help as well, as we can’t always control outside light sources.  Pay attention to smaller light sources as well, like charging phones and plugged in TV’s, etc.  
White Noise:
White noise can help in minimizing the sounds of partner snoring, pets snoring or moving around (say grooming in the middle of the night), or outside noise sources like cars, trains, and motorcycles.  
Managing Stress:
Managing stress levels during the day can make a big difference in keeping cortisol levels low at night.  Cortisol competes with melatonin, and we need melatonin to fall asleep.    I manage stress by practicing yoga and mindfulness meditation to not let stress get the best of me.    I also try to eat whole foods high in nutrients to help me manage stress better in the daytime, and to sleep more deeply at nighttime.  
Comfortable Bed:
I am a big fan of investing in a comfortable bed to enhance my quality of sleep.
You spend a lot of time sleeping, and restorative rest is crucial to energy, mood, and immune function.  


Partner Sleep Tips: 
Sharing the bed with a partner can be comforting and challenging.   When it comes to disturbances like noise and tossing and turning, I find that when I focus on my own needs, I sleep better overall.   
For partner snoring, I use white noise and earplugs.  I also make sure the room is relatively cool (but not too cool), and that there is no obvious light in the room, that may disrupt the production of melatonin.   
I also manage my stress levels during the day and often use an herbal blend of chamomile, passionflower, lemon balm, and hibiscus to help me sleep deeper and more undisturbed.   
Do yourself a favor and make sleep a priority.  Allow yourself to wind down at nighttime, turn off your devices, or use night-time screens, dim your lights and use amber lighting, and manage stress during the daytime.
Remember: sleep loss is not a badge of honor.  It may mean a shorter life span
Wishing you plenty of deep, restorative sleep this winter and beyond …🌙


It’s almost mid-January.  How are you doing?  Have you fallen off the New Year’s resolution bandwagon yet?

I read or heard somewhere the concept of New Year’s Evolution vs. Resolution.  The point is to evolve this year as a person, versus trying to keep strict or unrealistic resolutions.

I love this concept.  How can you set a goal, goals, or vision for yourself to evolve this year, one day, or even one moment or breath at a time?

What would your life and the world at large look like if we all evolved to our highest selves?

This concept brings up a concept that occurred to me a few years ago:

Making this moment your best moment ever

Here’s an idea:  to have the best year ever, make this your best moment ever…

Every year I see ads and magazines saying “This year will be your best yet!”  While I love this idea, we cannot have great years without first creating great moments.

How do you do this?  It’s called mindfulness.  Mindfulness is the practice of truly being here in the Now.

How do you practice being mindful?  Channel any stray, negative, or stressful thoughts into your breath.  Over time, this will get easier, and it can literally help you to build positive neural pathways, which greatly influence your habits.

When you change your health and wellness habits, guess what the result is? 

Great moments, days, and years.  🙂

Man Meditating on a Rock at the Beach --- Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis

Mindfulness practice and mindfulness meditation has Buddhist roots.  While the traditional focus is to become mindful and live deeply in the moment, in order to alleviate suffering, the practice has very useful applications that can greatly help your health, well-being, and quality of life.

It literally comes back to how mindfulness can change the structure of your brain.  The stronger your positive neural pathways are, the more likely you are to naturally make healthy choices.

This is not McMindfulness, this is science-based research, backed by thousands of years of mindfulness practice.

Being mindful is the first step toward having more great moments, days, and years…

First, be here now, in “This Moment.”  Make “This Moment” your best yet…be your best Self in this moment.

Allow yourself to evolve as your best self in this present moment, to see what can unfold

We cannot consistently have great days, months, and years without first being full present in the moment.

This is where our greatest challenge lies, but also our greatest opportunity to evolve and transform.

Evolving into our best selves’ can bring us our greatest joys, rewards, and triumphs!

All we every truly have is this moment.  Live “This Moment” with joy, awareness, and presence, and the rest naturally follows.

The opportunity to evolve and for growth and to change is absolutely possible, and we get there

~ One Mindful Moment At A Time ~

My wish for you is to focus on having great moments this year…

This is what leads to your own souls’ growth and, perhaps, finally fulfilling your New Year’s Resolutions.

What if I get stuck, you say?  We all have triggers that can cause us to feel stuck:

Shame (that we’re not good enough to deserve to be happy, for instance)

Stress (we’re just feeling too stressed to be mindful enough to stay present)

Story (we are living in the past or living in the future)

What is the solution to your lagging resolutions?  Remember, evolution is a process.

Practice peace and compassion with yourself.  Be grateful for each perfectly imperfect moment as it unfolds.  Do your best to show up for it as joyful and grateful and present as possible.

And then see what unfolds…

And, if you feel the need to make a resolution, consider living one, positive, mindful moment at a time   

Here’s to your  New Year’s Evolution and making the most of every moment, day, and experience this year!

Wishing you joy, peace, presence, love and a wonderfully fulfilling year and life… 

Be Grateful ❤

Wishing You Peace In the New Year



Wishing You Peace In the New Year

It’s been a crazy year: hurricanes, wildfires, shootings…just saying it all stresses me out.

It’s been a hard year in other ways too, perhaps…for me, at least.  Breakups, makeups, breakups…

As 2017 rolls out here, and 2018 rolls in…I’m wishing you Peace & a return to your center of Being.



Whatever trials you may have faced this year, I’m hoping 2018 is better for you, for me, for all of us…

If you’ve been suffering from illness, or loneliness, or sadness, trauma, loss, or anything else…

Wishing you a renewed sense of Hope & Peace in 2018…

Sending You Peace

I truly hope 2018 is a joyful, present, peaceful year for you!  Many blessings, my friends…

Sending you peace, love, and joy…

Best Wishes for 2018

Yes, the title was inspired by a quote from a GQ article, and I’ll tell you which one shortly here. But first…


The men I have known and loved have taken care of themselves to varying degrees.


Some of the men I have known have taken very good care of themselves:


  • Eating well (avoiding junk food, preparing food at home)


  • Exercising – running, lifting weights, practicing yoga, etc.


  • Staying mentally/emotionally healthy, practicing mindfulness



Other men I have known have grappled more with “well-being” perhaps in the form of:


  • Addictions – alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, etc.


  • Not exercising much (if at all)


  • Randomly present (with me, anyway)



What does it take for a guy to embrace living a healthy lifestyle? I love men, and my wish for them is to thrive: not just at work, but in terms of health and relationships too.


Here is my two cents, from the perspective of a (former) wife, friend, and girlfriend:


I see men putting (or not putting) health & well-being into a few categories, including:








Let’s start with comfort. In my (relative) experience with guys, they value comfort…or is that simplicity? If it feels good, there’s a better chance they’ll do it. While I feel many guys are great at blowing off stress in a healthy way (i.e. shooting some hoops vs. ruminating about a shitty situation), sometimes maybe “feeling good” also includes indulging in pleasure, even hedonism, a bit too much.


Too much might include:




Ice Cream


You get the picture


Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for pleasure. I value pleasure as a component of well-being, but just not at the expense of well-being.


Actually, here’s one of my recent favorite quotes:


It’s not about what you can get away with, it’s about becoming the best you can possibly can be.


Joe Manganiello, GQ Magazine


And, on the flip side:


I quit drinking eleven and a half years ago and I think that had I not been able to pull that off, I’d be dead.


Joe Manganiello, GQ Magazine


Chui, D. July 4, 2014. Joe manganiello true blood magic mike la bare interview. GQ. Retrieved from:



And, actually, here’s what I really love about many men. They (I’m referring to the masculine mind or sensibility) can be great at streamlining Life. This is Comfort/Simplicity.


This may be Utility too:


What works. Let’s get it done. But, what’s the best (or easiest sometimes) way of doing something, if necessary. Of course, I see many men striving for greatness and standards.


But, I’ve seen them cut themselves short too when it comes to their own health and wel-being. This is where telemedicine, the anonymity of the web, and generic drugs for male pattern baldness, or erectile dysfunction may work to the advantage of the reluctant Wellness Superhero.

thumbnail_1347 HIM_077

From Tech Crunch:


“’Approximately 25 percent of men with male pattern baldness begin shedding their locks before they reach the age of 21,’ says the American Hair Loss Association. Another stat that might surprise: According to the Cleveland Clinic, as many as 52 percent of men experience erectile dysfunction, with 40 percent of men age 40 affected. As for premature ejaculation, it may impact upwards of one in three men, estimates the Mayo Clinic.


So, why are things looking up for this large yet quietly suffering demographic? Two things: changes to telemedicine laws, and expiring patents, both of which are about to make it a whole lot easier – and cheaper – to obtain pills and other medications that no one seems to want to talk very publicly about.”

Loizos, C. Nov. 1, 2017. Life could grow easier for men for two reasons and startups and investors are on it. Tech Crunch. Retrieved from:



Not Wanting to Talk About or Address Health Issues


What I’ve noticed is that some men (just may) not wish to address health and well-being straight on. It’s not that it doesn’t concern them (well, maybe sometimes), but more that they just don’t want to address it directly.


Maybe it’s the Superhero image, or maybe it’s just cultural (and, maybe that’s the same thing). As much I experience men being direct in many ways (i.e. the tendency to value simplicity), when it comes to well-being, sensitive topics like balding or premature ejaculation aren’t exactly conversation starters.


Perhaps some of the main topics in health and wellness that are important to a lot of guys just aren’t very easy to address.


So what does it take to inspire your favorite guy to make well-being a Priority?


DIY Skills:




From a coaching P.O.V. priority is about values. It’s what you value that drives you. So, if our favorite guys may (already) be great at drive, then it’s about inspiring them to find the drive to value taking better care of themselves too.


People have different reasons for doing things:






To Feel Better



Well-Being As It’s Own Reward


Practical & Tactical (bringing it all together)


In my experience, when a guy – or anyone for that matter – embraces living well, it’s because, ultimately, it feels good. This is practical wellness to me. Whether the drive is from an injury or chronic condition, or to just be a better version of yourself, the drive is to live better simply because it feels better.


Of course, in the ever-expanding health and wellness sectors, startups like hims, telemedicine, and expiring patents can help in this quest to feel better (physically – and about one’s self too, i.e. better self-image, an important component of well-being.)


We’re still “feeling good” too and even emphasizing pleasure (it’s part of staying well – a big part, in fact). But, the drive to feel good is motivated by thriving and not escaping.


So, what are the DIY health and wellness skills to step into a healthier lifestyle? In a nutshell, do what feels good, and do it to be a better man, because that is it’s own reward.  This is tactical: it’s an internal motivator to feel good for the sake of feeling good, and because it helps you evolve naturally.


Joe Manganiello sums it up well:


It’s more about motivating and being the best person you can be, and as a result your body will transform. It’s not about vanity it’s about evolving as a person.


Joe Manganiello, GQ Magazine


Amen to that, Joe…


P.S. The title comes from the same GQ article I have quoted in this blog.

P.P.S. Check out hims as a resource for telemedicine, erectile dysfunction, and male pattern baldness. These guys are on a mission to create on open and empowered male culture around health and preventative self-care.

As the guys say on their website:

the point of it all—and the message that’s most important to us—is making sure you realize this one specific thing: having an issue isn’t weird. not dealing with it is weird.

that is hims.


Bravo guys…




“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

I am reviewing Legatto, Intimate massage oil for women.  You can find it here:



This is a very nice intimate massage oil.  It has a wonderful consistency to it, and a really wonderful aroma.  It has a fantastic, natural scent from essential oils that smells like sandalwood to me, which is a naturally very intimate, sensual aroma.  In addition, the oils used to make this massage oil include argan and hemp oil.

Argan oil is a fantastic oil that has a fabulous consistency for the skin, etc.  Hemp oil is known to have some mild, pain-relieving qualities (I believe it has natural CBD in it, correct me if I’m wrong).

It also has jojoba oil and grape seed oil in it, both of which are very easily absorbed into the skin.  This is a great combination of oils, herbs, and essential oils, designed for intimate massage and beyond.*

While this product I am reviewing is an intimate massage oil, this company also makes an opiod-alternative.  You can check it out here:


Leggato has fantastic ingredients, and is made by a company with a background in music, chemistry, and herbalism.  Not a bad combination!

In fact, the goal of Resonant Botanicals is to ‘counter the stressful cacophony of modern life.’    Amen to that!

Check out some of the organic, awesome ingredients in this intimate massage oil:

Argan Oil – a very nice consistency for massage

Hemp Oil – may contain natural pain-relieving properities, great for skin

Jojoba Oil – perfect for massage

Borage Oil – great for skin

Shea Oils – a very nice moisturizer for skin

Maca Root – may help balance hormones

Passionflower – a natural aphrodisiac

Damiana – a natural aphrodisiac

Amazing essential oils – sandalwood (?)…a proprietary blend

Beyond the awesome scent created by the proprietary blend of essential oils, and the great carrier oils, what I love most about this organic oil blend are the following:

Topical Aphrodisiac – This formula has damiana, in addition to other herbal aphrodisiacs.  Damiana is known to have an aphrodisiac-like quality to it.  I definitely noticed this when using this product, and I was very happy to find a topical aphrodisiac formula.  Apply to thinner areas of your forearms or abdomen.

Improved Hormonal Balance – Maca (and maybe Damiana too) may help your body to achieve better hormonal balance as well.  Again, this was my experience using this product.  Unbalanced hormones can result in symptoms like fatigue, low libido, etc.

Enhanced Libido – Again, another wonderful benefit of this topical aphrodisiac in my eyes is an enhanced libido.

From the Resonant Botanicals website:

Each [Resonant Botanicals product] is scientifically formulated with the most effective herbs in a superior delivery system designed to counter the stressful cacophony of modern life.

In creating Resonant Botanicals, I gathered together an eclectic and wildly talented group of people who share my philosophy and love of nature. My education is in chemistry, and I have a fascination with how molecules get metabolized (processed) in our body. In herbal medicine, the whole plant is extracted, with all its beneficial properties and all the “entourage” molecules are made available to assist in the relief process. While it is not patentable, these actions have been observed for thousands of years through many different cultures, and that is where we have chosen to place our focus with our products.”

Look, we live in a modern, often stressful world.  We need to counter balance this stress with Joy. 

The joys of intimacy, whether that’s a hug, massage, and beyond, are healing and necessary. 

This is a fantastic product to help you slow down and savor the joys of intimacy.

*Note: I personally don’t recommend using this oil as a lubricant, but the company implies this is ok, I believe.  It is, however, a FANTASTIC massage oil with a lovely scent, and it has several aphrodisiacal herbs in it, including damiana, passionflower, etc.  It’s a wonderful intimate massage oil!


When my husband gave me a black eye, I was afraid to speak up and tell the police officer what happened. Years later, when my husband hit me with such a force as to knock me across the room, I was afraid to press charges, and because he told me it would ruin his life. Just like the #Time people of the year, when you speak up and break your silence, it gives your suffering a voice. I have survived a few things in my life including chronic illness and domestic violence. You can move from surviving to thriving when you give your suffering a voice. Don’t suffer in silence. Speak up. What makes you thrive, even in the face of great odds? What makes you come alive? http://bit.ly/2nyLfbL

Excerpts from my book, The Memory of Health

Journal Entry/1994 – The Terrifying Healing


I come from a dark forest, a deep, dark fairytale.  I don’t know where the path is that leads me out of the forest.  I am in the maze: the terrifying and exhilarating landscape of healing.  I only hope I emerge on the other side a happy, healthy heroine.


I ask myself this question often: Where is this place I come from and journey to? Sometimes it seems I am forever going in circles.  Maybe this is what I’m meant to do: travel, spiral in or outwards depending on what’s required of me: the journey with no real destination, but one that finds hope, gains ground, and finds some peace and healing along the way. 


I heal because I have to.  It is my solitary responsibility to bring myself to the world as whole and as full of courage as possible.  There is a quote by Gaston Bacheland that says “What is the source of our first suffering?  It lies in the fact that we hesitated to speak.  It was born in the moment when we accumulated silent things within us.” (as cited in Metzger, 2009).


Let me tell you about my silence.  It is difficult, because what is silent in me is what defines me.  The deep spaces I side-step around, don’t tell anyone about … these silent spaces haunt me.  Yet in these spaces I have found my voice.  It tells me to get off the main road, follow those blue highways, and see where they wish to lead me…


I was reading about archetypes and I read something about the wounded healer that resonates with me.  Deena Metzger says the wound is one means by which we reach compassion.  I can see that, how illness is really such fertile ground for spiritual growth.


Illness is a fire that has burned away my identity.  In the aftermath, I have begun to write and find my true voice.  I write to heal myself, to experience my inexorable pain perhaps through the eyes of the heroine who walks the unknown path toward the dawn…


Metzger says stories heal us because we become whole through them, “[and that] all suffering is bearable if it is seen as part of a story.” So here is where I am, suffering in such a way that only makes me wish to grow stronger.  Suffering no longer in silence, but in story



The Memory of Health is a meditation and conversation on well-being. What makes you thrive, even in the face of great odds? What makes you come alive? At the age of 22, Edie developed chronic fatigue after having surgery for a ski accident. While physical therapy was helpful, she had to seek alternative treatment to regain full use of her knee. In the course of seeking answers to her health challenges, she discovered the power of mindful living.

On finding inner peace:

” The transformation you will experience will be as shallow or as deep as your work.”  Or Shahar

Finding inner peace in this world isn’t always easy….but it’s always worth it and worth the journey.

Listen to my interview with Or Shahar, and learn how she discovered inner peace, along with becoming her own yoga teacher.  Listen here…

Become Your Own Yoga Teacher 11/21 by TheWellnessCoach | Health Podcasts: Over 10 years ago at only 18 years old, Or Shahar took a trip to India to take her first yoga course. Recovering from depression she returned to India a few years later where she discovered her deep connection to Buddhism, took her initial yoga teacher training and started to practice yoga seriously. For the past four years, she has taught yoga in the Berlin area, while deepening her own practice every day and spending restorative time raising her beloved dog. Or is founder of Freedom Yoga where she guides yoga practitioners who feel their weekly classes aren’t enough but they aren’t ready to commit to teacher training, to deepen their practice in a way that works with their schedules and their budgets.

High blood pressure is the number one killer worldwide.  It is a silent killer, and it is largely preventable.

High blood pressure kills millions of people every year and it’s preventable

It can lead to strokes, heart disease, heart attacks, severe kidney disease, and even dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Read more on high blood pressure and dementia here: (High blood pressure in mid life tied to dementia). Bakalar, 2017

Here is what you need to know:

There are new guidelines for what is now considered high blood pressure:

High blood pressure is now 130-139 (systolic) and 80-89 (diastolic).  These numbers are down from 140/90 as they have been in the past.


Under these new guidelines, 46 % of the U.S. population is now considered hypertensive.

High blood pressure is the leading cause of death worldwide and the second-leading cause of preventable death in the United States, after cigarette smoking (Contact me to help quit smoking)


What does this mean?  If your blood pressure is 140/90 or higher, most likely you will need prescription medication.  Some of you may know I am not a fan of prescription medication.  However, high blood pressure is nothing to take lightly, and hypertensive levels are already putting you at great risk (130/80 or higher).

The good news is that if you are hypertensive, lifestyle medicine may largely help you get your numbers lower.

Lifestyle medicine includes losing weight, lowering stress levels (or managing reactions to stress – Contact me for help), quitting smoking, improving your diet (Contact me for help), consuming less alcohol,  getting more excercise (Contact me for help), etc.

Normal blood pressure is 120/80.  It’s important to know this to visualize success in lowering your blood pressure if you are hypertensive.

High Blood Pressure & The Risk for Alzheimer’s

“Researchers have known about the link between blood pressure and Alzheimer’s for years. In 2013, investigators showed that older people with high blood pressure, or hypertension, were more likely to have biomarkers of Alzheimer’s in their spinal fluid. Another study found that the more blood pressure varied over an eight-year period, the greater the risk of dementia.”  HopkinsMedicine.Org, 2017, https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/healthy_aging/healthy_body/blood-pressure-and-alzheimers-risk-whats-the-connection

Read this article to learn how to reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s:  Use lifestyle medicine to reduce risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia

“The systolic reading refers to the pressure when the heart contracts and sends blood through the arteries. Diastolic pressure is measured when the heart relaxes between beats.

The lower score is expected to triple the number of younger men considered hypertensive and double the number of younger women with high blood pressure.

Men are more likely to have high blood pressure than women and blacks are more likely than whites. Many people are unaware that they have the condition because there are no symptoms.”

How Low is Too Low of Blood Pressure?

There can be side effects to having too low of blood pressure too (something I can relate to from having CFS).

From the John Hopkins website:

Research Shows…
How Low Should You Go?

“Lower is not necessarily better when it comes to blood pressure. A 2013 study published in the journal JAMA Neurology found that people with heart disease or stroke who had lower-than-normal blood pressure (in which the bottom, or diastolic, number was less than or equal to 70 mm Hg) were more likely to show changes in the brain that can affect cognition and memory.”  https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/healthy_aging/healthy_body/blood-pressure-and-alzheimers-risk-whats-the-connection

An atom is a nano-tornado, a spinning force field…it’s not a particle, it’s made up of energy. You’re an energy field, broadcasting energy.

In a quantum world, nothing is separate. We are broadcasting like a radio. We are affecting one another. To read others’ energy and how you feel about something or someone, ask the question of your heart, not your head.
