If you are interested in your health, the health of those you love and the health of the Planet, join me here. Our health is affected by our environment, our political and economic systems and our relationship to everything around us. We are interconnected with everyone on the planet. If we purchase items that cause harm to others across the world, our health is impacted. If we hold on to anger at others, if we keep dangerous secrets inside us and withhold love, we damage our health. This blog will deal with our food supply, our health care system, our environment as well as the economic and political factors that are affecting our well being. I will blog about books, including the ones I am writing, movies, articles and links to sites that can help us all stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. Now a toast, Here's To your HealthAsk me anything
