Now that I’m a woman of a certain age I’ve been a little obsessed with taking care of myself. If you’ve kept up with my posts you know that I’m working out. I’m also taking a hefty number of supplements. I’ve never counted them, because I’m pretty sure I’d gag if I did. It’s taken a while to figure out what works for me, but I’m happy there are so many choices when it comes to taking responsibility for how I feel.
I try to make informed decisions, but there will always be charlatans who promise miracles under the guise of healthy living. I’ve decided to share a few of the more outrageous ones from the past.
I haven’t decided which one of these wins the Stupidity Award of Health Care. It’s probably a toss-up between the tape worms for weight loss and eating lard for happiness.
This week-end I’ll be in Tucson for the Tucson Festival of Books. They offer workshops, panel discussions and, of course, books. And it’s FREE!!! I went last year and it was better than any writer’s conference I’ve been to, including those I had to pay for. I’m really looking forward to it. In the meantime…
Oh yeah, don’t forget to eat more lard!
