Thank you so much for your patience. Before getting started, I want to let you know about a website that is very beneficial for all: WebMD. They have information on any and all health issues, plus articles and research materials. My favorite part? They have a symptom checker. They won't say, "This is it", but they will give you a list of possibles for you to check into and narrow down.

By request, I'm going to start our journey with HEART DISEASE. Who among us has not had their lives touched by heart disease?
In order for us to benefit the most and to cover this subject accurately, I will do the post as a series.

I, again, encourage you to let me know if there is a topic you would like for me to explore.

Interesting, Gena... I did not know all of the details. It's good to have this site I think since so many of us know so little about health issues --until it hits one of our or our families....

A topic of interest to me is Holistic Health.. We are not on any prescriptioned meds---but we do take vitamins. What I would love to discuss sometime is what vitamins/minerals we really need and which ones are totally ineffective.

Thanks!!! (Keep me posted.)

Great idea, Betsy! Some holistic medicines are NOT good for you!
I try to stay "well rounded" on a lot of topics. When I worked as a police officer, we were the 2nd or 3rd largest county in the state and had some real remote areas, so I cross-trained: police, emergency medical technician and firefighter. I have a lot of training in all three fields.
You are right! The old saying "it won't happen to me". We are all guilty.
It is marvelous that you two only take vitamins and supplements. I wish I could say that!
Talk soon!
