Ortho Evra

Now there are Ortho Evra lawsuits pending.

Have you been negatively affected by this drug? Call your pharmacist, the company, your doctor, or do some research to see what the side effects are.

Financial Health

Do you invest? Do you check the silver prices regularly? Invest in stocks? Have a Roth IRA?

This is a new year and it is time to make health goals- and that includes looking at the health of your finances.

What are your goals for this coming new year?


Christmas has come and gone. So, what did you get? Gold jewelry? Satellite radio? You know, the holiday isn't about that.

I love that scene in Charlie Brown Christmas where Linus tells everyone what Christmas truly is about. I love that. I memorized the Bible verse because of that show.

Late Holiday Gifts

I know, the holidays are nearly over. Are there people you've forgotten to buy things for? You need ideas... and fast. Only problem? You don't have a lot of money... Here are some ideas:

  • cheap flowers
  • chocolates
  • homemade baked goods in a pretty container (containers are probably half off by now!)
  • look for sales on jewelry, etc...

Is it time to invest?

It's a new year. Do you have investment goals? Here are some tips:

- Have a few months of expenses readily available.
- Consider mutual funds
- Invest in a Roth IRA
- Consider investing in precious metals
- Constantly evaluate your finances to make sure you stay on track.

Prescription Drugs

How many of you take prescription drugs? How many of you know the potential risks involved with taking prescription drugs? My advice is to get informed.

Prempro is amongst those drugs who are currently dealing with legal action. Do you know anyone who is filing a prempro lawsuit?

Your Health Care

How have your doctors been? Great? Disasterous?

I know people who have hired malpractice lawyers for their situations. You need a GOOD lawyer.

I think of all those drugs, and all those doctors that do more harm then good. That makes me angry!

Car Insurance

I don't care what you think, you need car insurance. Driving is just too dangerous!

From a health standpoint (as is the theme of this blog), you are endangering your life if you don't wear a seatbelt. So wear one and get car insurance... driving is just too dangerous to take risks like that!

Job Search

Here is a list of great jobs:

- Nurses
- Medical Techs
- Risk Management Jobs
- Technology
- Freelance (Always a good option if you need flexible hours)

Back to School

Do you wish you could go back to school but don't have the time? I bet there is an online program out there that can fit your needs.

I earned my Diploma of Herbal Studies at a distance learning school (Australasian College of Health Sciences). I loved how I could set my own pace.

Here are some study tips for you, specifically tailored to distance learning:

- Don't wait until the last minute. This is so easy to do, but you just end up getting stressed. Schedule in a certain number of hours a week until you accomplish your goal.

- Don't waste your time doing anything that isn't necessary. You don't need to read your class manual multiple times to memorize it. Skim it, read it, and then review the key points.

- Network with other students. This is invaluable. You can really benefit from their experiences.
