She Makes Soup with Soul- Elina Fuhrman- Fearless Fabulous Women

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditThe healing power of soup can never be underestimated. A warm bowl of chicken soup will ease a cold. A mug of nourishing bone broth may be the only thing a cancer patient in treatment can tolerate. A cup of tomato soup with a toasty sandwich brings back happy childhood memories. A simmering pot of vegetable soup laced with herbs and spices warms a kitchen and a few hearts around the table. And that’s just the warm soup! Then there’s the zing of a tangy gazpacho on a summer afternoon, the silkiness of chilled Spring pea soup and my memories watching my soup loving […]

Nutritional Supplements: Hope? Hype? Help?

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditThe word “wellness” may end up as the Word of the Year in 2016. The self- improvement industry is a $10 billion juggernaut, from books to products to services to make you look, feel and act better. Chefs have jumped on the bandwagon; so have many film and TV celebrities who are now “lifestyle and wellness experts.” I am the recipient of numerous pitches on how to improve your life, and I write about health and wellness regularly. It’s a topic that has been of primary importance to me all my life but even more so now as both a […]

The Ultimate List of 10 Things To Do Now

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditWhen my father passed away from cancer in 2009, I remember one of the most frustrating things my mother and I dealt with was getting access to his various accounts and unlocking his mobile phone. We didn’t know the passwords. I have forgotten passwords to numerous accounts. I reset one, carefully file it away and then forget where the file is on my computer. It happens all the time, and I’m still sound of mind. Imagine 20-30 years from now! It’s more than just passwords that you should share with someone you trust. If you become incapacitated at any […]

On Fearless Fabulous You! Feb 29- Tips for Caring for Your Aging Parent

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestReddit While my usual topics are about you aging gracefully, this one will be about gracefully caring for an elderly loved one. David and I both have mothers in their 80s. We’ve discussed this between us: Who will care for our mothers? David has 2 brothers to share the responsibility. I am an only child. We both live miles away from our mothers. In a medical emergency who locally “on the ground” can assist and, in some cases, be a health care proxy until we arrive? What do we need to consider if she falls or becomes injured or ill […]

Timeless Accessories To Wear at Any Age

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditI have closets filled with beautiful clothes, shelves lined with designer handbags, racks of shoes and a safe filled with fine jewelry. They’ve been slowly acquired over the years, purchased by me or gifted from my parents or friends. I’m a lucky, well-dressed woman….except when I’m wearing the wrong accessories. I’m not talking about a heavy purse or too tight shoes. I’m talking about emotional baggage and feathers of self-doubt that dull your sparkle and cramp your style. A brilliant “Huffington Post” article has been circulating among my friends called “What Not To Wear After 50.” by Michelle Combs (www.RubberShoesinHell.com). Some of my favorite tips on what not to […]

Heart Stopping Statistics on Heart Disease Among African American and Hispanic Women

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditMany women assume that heart disease affects only older women, but that is not true according to the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women Campaign.” Heart disease can affect women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, and often with more lethal results because many women ignore the signs of a heart attack or stroke.

It Takes a Strong Head To Have a Healthy Heart

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditFebruary is Heart Health Month. Heart disease is the #1 cause of death among women.  The American Heart Association’s “Go Red For Women”campaign stresses the importance of a healthy diet, weight management and regular exercise to maintain heart health. I agree heart health starts with taking care of your body, but I also believe it means fixing what may be going on in your head.  Anxiety and anger also stress the heart. Many of us have experienced a broken heart due to a failed romance, loss of a loved one or an emotional setback. Time is the best healer. But a bitter heart can be harder […]

Are You Losing Your Hair? You’re Not Alone

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditAccording to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 1 in 4 women experience thinning hair. While 40% of women experience thinning hair at time of menopause due to lower estrogen, it’s common for women to start losing their hair in their 20s and 30s.

There are many types of hair loss and causes. Sometimes it’s reversible; sometimes it’s not. However, it is manageable, […]
