As a career woman for a major computer company and working 50 plus hours per week, I relied on adrenaline to fuel my drive to handle the responsibilities of my job and career advancement.
Suddenly, with no warning and at the peak of my career, I was shot down with an illness that put me into a mental fog, making it difficult to get up in the morning and function through the day - not to mention carry the stress and obligations of my job.
I assumed a doctor visit would fix me up and I would be back to normal. Imagine my suprise when doctor after doctor resorted to "guessing" and some even felt that it would just go away. General practitioners, internists, and ob-gyns were all stumped. Fear for my future put me in a panic to find out what was wrong and how to fix it. The closest description to what I was experiencing was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Again, doctors proved an unreliable source for solving my problem since the diagnosis was controversial, vague and no clear cut treatment was available. I was at the mercy of the medical establishment that had no viable options.
While I have great respect for the medical profession, I now have a better understanding of their strengths and their limitations. Forced to take my health and my future into my own hands, I took a deep dive into medical research from diet, nutritional supplements, stress relievers, anti aging solutions, detox methods, Chinese medicine and other treatments.
Fortunately, my research paid off and I beat the odds. Through alternative medicine, nutrition and supplements, I found my way back to a normal life. I also found a number of anti aging solutions along the way.
Realizing the power of so many alternative treatments to recover my health has put me on a path for the past 25 years of investigative research on the best approaches and treatments out there to help me advance the quality of my life. Through this journey, many of my friends and colleagues have come to me for advice on health and anti aging solutions that has proven very helpful to them.
In addition to changing my health for the better, I found that many of the ideas that helped me also provided an anti aging effect as well. Now, many years later, I feel that I am reaping the effects of the nutrition, supplements, exercise and anti aging solutions that I began those many years ago.
Based on many requests, I am making my experience and discoveries public through this website. It is my hope that sharing my insights on what I believe to be the better ideas and treatments out there will help the reader cut through much of the information that is available and get to the best options faster.
The information that I share on this site is not in lieu of the medical establishment but a supplement to traditional medical practices to give you the ability to take responsibility for your health and make informed decisions. I find that most medical doctors like informed patients where the medical decisions are done in a partnership. If your doctor is not in this category, then perhaps it is time to find one that is - to give you the best chance at quality of life.
There is so much information available today to filter to the final workable solutions that it can be overwhelming. My goal is to be that filter providing you proven options based on my experience as well as some of the latest anti aging research and product evaluations. In addition, I include the resources for much of my information including favorite books, newsletters and other web sites.
I will let you know if it is a topic of which I have direct knowledge or experience or whether it is newly available research.
I also welcome input from readers who have had experiences related to the topics discussed on my site. Please feel free to contact me for any suggestions that you may have for a more informative site.
