Mudras

It seems the universal sign for meditation is a flexible person sitting in a cross-legged position with their hands in a finger touching pose. It looks beautiful and serene. That’s not how it looks on me. If I try to sit cross-legged my hips cramp, my knees won’t go down and my ankles hurt from […]

Asparagus Pee

Can you smell it? Asparagus pee that is. If you are a smeller you might be surprised to find out that not everyone is. As much as half of the population doesn’t smell asparagus pee. For the sake of full transparency, I admit that I am a smeller. The first time it happened was freaky. […]

Self Care for Men Over 50

Despite what you may have thought self-care is not a luxury, it is maintenance. Just like cars need oil changes and tire rotations, the human body also needs regular maintenance.

Focus on Cataracts

The doctor’s official diagnosis was “big honkin’ cataract”. The doctor assured Tom that it had nothing to do with the nerve damage caused by his lung tumor. The blurry vision had shown up around the same time as his other diagnosis, so we weren’t sure, the oncologist had referred Tom to this eye doctor and […]
