Spend any time on a hospital oncology floor and you notice things. I'm not sick, but a friend is, and I'm there a lot. Every day. For hours. Waiting. Watching. Oh yes, I'm watching. I'm no stranger to hospitals or medicine. I know how things work. Or don't work. That "don't work" thing? I . . .
The first time I tasted Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt I couldn’t believe how delicious it was, and how satisfying. How could something so creamily yummy have so few calories? Or so much protein? Each of the 20+ unique flavors was as mouth-watering as the last. Regular yogurt has always been a meal . . .

You know I love all things India, so when I heard about Dosha Pops-- handmade lollipops with ingredients that support a healthier lifestyle based on your Ayurvedic dosha--I wanted to know more.

I remember when I started getting night sweats in my 40s. It was the AIDS era and I was sure that was the source of my nighttime condition. A few years later I noticed a major drop in libido.
