Apples, HCG and Mungwart – Oh My!
I love to read and keep up on the latest health studies and crazes. I follow so many health blogs, I sometimes can’t keep up with them! I’ll tuck my favorites away for possible future posts.

I have had a lot of questions about the HCG diet. I have written my opinion here but found this article by Dr. Mercola very informative and surprisingly (for him especially!) unbiased. Reading the comments of people who have tried the diet is interesting too. Check it out here
Lastly, if your vagina is needing attention, here is a new fad gaining popularity in California: vaginal steam baths. I think my vagina is just fine, but if your vagina seems a little sluggish, mungwart steam may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Get all your answers here
Adios, my friends! I’ll keep doing this from time to time and save you all from having to go through the hundreds of boring articles for those gems in the rough :)
Doesn’t this picture make you want to eat an apple?
