Posted | 0 comments

A recent editorial that appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine entitled, “Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements,” grabbed a lot of media headlines and left many people wondering if they should toss out their vitamin supplements.

What’s Behind those Weird Dreams?

Posted | 0 comments

I want to preempt this blog post by disclosing that I am as ‘unspiritual’ as they get.

It’s not like women go around waving tampons in the air when they have their periods, but it does seem that in general, we are more open to talking about the trials and tribulations of menstruation than the lack thereof.

They are not. Audiences want to see them, and in...
