  • “Wait, I’m supposed to put my feet into that delicious tub of hot chocolate, whip cream and powdered cocoa?

  • Most of the time, when you walk down the streets of NYC, you walk, meaning head straight, eyes in front of you, with your mind on a zillion things. But if you’ve ever had a chance to stroll, you’d see that there’s a lot happening at the second level, including some serious spa going. We <... >

  • I am a person who “suspends disbelief”, especially when it comes to “alternative” wellness. I have seen many loved ones suffer needlessly from incorrect medical diagnoses; feeling helpless while friends and colleagues try to find “health in a pill- the result of a growing pharmaculture. Based on the growing disenchantment with HMOs “get them in <... >
