Wait just a minute…coconut oil will make me fat, and raise my cholesterol, right?

Yes and no. Yes, it raises GOOD cholesterol, but no, it won’t make you fat, or clog your arteries.

I found this information on the WebMD site. These are some of the benefits of peppermint oil, while there is not concrete evidence, it makes sense that there wouldn't be, because we are all different, and our bodies have different reactions to natural remedies, the same way people have different reactions to different foods.

Exercise helps increase mental clarity and creativity, at least for me. I get a lot of my blog post ideas while I am on the treadmill. I carry a small spiral notebook with me everywhere so that I can right down ideas before I forget them.

Tea is a very interesting beverage with many benefits, several uses, and an interesting history, even more interesting than that of coffee. Tea doesn't have a downside, the way that coffee does. There is so much interesting information about tea that I found out by researching that I decided it would be a good idea to split this article up into several parts.

The Health Benefits of Coffee

 

If you are a coffee drinker like me, I have good news for you—coffee is good for you. If you are not a coffee drinker—maybe you're a tea drinker instead—good, because tea is good for you as well. If you don't like either one, that's okay, I have other healthy beverages on the menu.

"Domestic/dating violence is a pattern of controlling behaviors that one partner uses to get power over the other. Including: physical violence or threat of physical violence to get control, emotional or mental abuse and sexual abuse."

Domestic violence is still very much a problem in our society. I believe it is still under-reported; many women suffer in silence, for many reasons:

 

1. They do not know who to turn to for help; their abuser has likely isolated them from family and friends, in order to maintain control.

2. They don't think they can make it without him.

According to an article on Women's Health.gov, “Of all minority groups, African-Americans have the most, and many times the largest, differences in health risks when compared to other minority groups.” Some of the reasons for this include lack of health care, mistrust, and health care given too late; by educating yourself on the most common health problems among African American women, you can empower yourself, learn what symptoms you need to be concerned about, and what questions you should ask your doctor.

In this post, I'm going to cover some of these health concerns.

Happy Martin Luther King Day! Many of you are familiar with Dr King, so while this post is a tribute to his legacy, I think I can best accomplish that by mentioning those who shared his dream, and some of those who came after, who may not have had the opportunities for success that they enjoyed, if it had not been for those who risked all to secure equal rights for minorities in this nation.

These are just my thoughts about relationships;, but from experience, it is sound advice, and I have seen these ideas work. This post is mainly for single ladies, because yours is the perspective I relate to the best, being a woman. But, single guys can apply these principles too.
