Greetings All!

I am so very excited to finally start my blog!  I've come to terms with doing things that I want to do imperfectly and simply improve with practice and new knowledge as it becomes available to me.  Many times fear of the unknown can hold us back from new or different experiences, causing people to prolong or avoid things they may want to try or start.  What's not a big deal to one person, can be another person's biggest fear!  With all that being said I will move on to the whole purpose of creating this blog!

I am very passionate about sharing and providing others with healthy tips and information to make their bodies and minds better by way of natural health, wellness and nutrition.  Many consider me to be an aficionado, advocate, and enthusiast in the arena of health, wellness and nutrition covering the following but not limited to: natural and alternative health and therapies; natural hair; natural beauty and hygiene; mental, spiritual and emotional health; healthful and whole foods; self-awareness; healthful lifestyle practices such as diet and exercise...and I'll end the list there!  

Creating this blog is also part of  my decision to commit to consistent life improvement practices.  Over the years I've implemented certain healthy habits only to fall off the wagon later; still advising and informing others of healthful information and ultimately not practicing what I preached!  It is my belief that self-awareness techniques and practices and adopting more healthy habits will allow me to be accountable as I embark on this journey of  positive changes and improvements.  I am most happy when I am healthy and helping other to become more healthy and reach their full potential.  Each day we get a chance to do better!!!  

Change is always necessary weather we want them or not, weather we are ready or NOT! We all have the ability to make decisions and choices and it's up to each one of us to exercise them.  Changes can be planned and sometimes spontaneous, however the forced changes can be life threatening and unpleasant.  Therefore we should take control now while we have the authority and opportunity to make conscious decisions for ourselves.  Whatever changes you decide to make, be sure you are doing it for yourself and not for others.  In order to obtain genuine long lasting results of changes,  you must first have the inner desire to do so!  Always remember, THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

Until next time,

I bid you better health and vision!


  1. This is what's up! Being healthy and staying healthy! Hey Latrice, I have been having dandruff issue every since I can remember and I have been using sooooo many products for my dandruff and nothing have been working. I believe I might need to take something internal because I am thinking I'm lacking something in my diet, So I was wondering if u can suggest anything that's natural that can help my dandruff?

  2. This is good. That's what I have to begin again eating healthy. When I was working it was an everyday thing, but now that I am at home, I have to discipline myself all over again. That is my venture for 2012.

  3. This is very good cousin. I am a person that has been on a journey to be healthy as well. Istarted by changing the foods I eat and exercising more. So far I've lost 10 dress sizes, going from a size 26-28 to a size 18 now. This is not my target size yet. I'm trying to get my pre-martial size back which was a size 11-12. My target weight is to be at least 175lbs., and I'm getting close but the other main reason for wanting to lose weight is that my family has a history of diabetes and being overweight. I didn't want to fall in that category. After losing my husband 3 and half years ago, and him being so young (44yrs), I have a better perspective on life. I need help with eating the right foods for my health. I've cut out fried foods and I back my food. I don't eat pork anymore and I had cut out beef but lately I've been craving for it so I ate a cheeseburger. I only usually eat chicken, fish & turkey, but this will definitely help me.

    1. Cousin T,
      Thank you so much for sharing your journey! Congratulations on your continued quest toward a healthier lifestyle! Loosing 10 dress sizes is a great accomplishment! As many of us have a predisposition to certain diseases it is important to be proactive in the most healthy way possible! You are off to a great start and I wish you only the best going forward!

    2. Thanks Cousin, I really appreciate your kind words.

  4. I was wondering if you have any solutions for reducing the extra fat around the abdominal area. That is my trouble area that I despise the most. Trying to get rid of the love handles. I drink a lot of water and my stomach expands a lot but I love to drink water. Please can you help me? Thanks!
