I've ordered a new book called Quench by Dana Cohen, MD.  We've been told for ages that we should drink eight glasses of water a day, but according to Dana Cohen, there is a smarter way to hydrate.  Dr. Cohen is a traditionally trained physician who has practiced integrative/functional medicine for over 20 years.  Evidently, dehydration can affect everything from cognitive thinking to movement!  You can read more about this interesting book here.


Earlier in the week, I wrote a blog post about how to prevent and reverse dementia.  This article from Dr. Axe, gives 8 Surprising Ways to Lower Dementia Risk including sleeping in a brain friendly position.  I found this article very interesting and will be incorporating these suggestions in addition what I'm already doing.

Female face shaving is a real thing and I'll admit that I've been doing it for years.  I don't like to have any fuzz on my face and it's easy to just shave it off every day.  If you've ever thought about it, you'll be interested in this article.  When done properly, it's a great way to remove unwanted hair and exfoliate.
