Do you ever wonder why some people rarely seem to “catch” a cold or flu during this season or any other season, for that matter?  I know I do!  Normally I do not succumb to the relatively mild mannered rhino virus or the nastier flu strains, however, approximately once every three to five years I will get a doozie of cold.  I also know that when this happens it is because I have not taken care of myself from a nutritional perspective; in my case, that normally means too much sugar.  I have a number of friends and associates that fit into the “rarely” category, so I think it would be benefi

It's one of the most unavoidable things you will face in your life; looking older that is. There are some womanly secrets though to perhaps deter gravity from wreaking havoc on your youthful skin.
