Cathy Kates’ Last Ditch Cure For Tennis Elbow: Horse Liniment [Cue The Jokes]

The doctor says if the elbow hurts on the top, it's tennis elbow.  If it hurts on the bottom, it's golfers elbow.  I haven't done either and my left elbow has been killing me for months.  I can barely lift a coffee cup to my face!  I talked about this during the morning show and a listener face booked me and said she and two others in her office have the same thing and so does my husband!  Could rubbing medication for horses really be our cure?

Why Was There A “Little Door” Installed At Essentia Health’s Erick Peter Person Children’s Cancer Center?

I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Perko who is trained to work in Pediatric Oncology and Pediatric Hematology and get the answer to that question.  I also want to share information you and your family might not be aware of that will keep you at your job, in your community, with family and friends if your child should become sick.  All while still benefiting from the incredible research done at St. Jude!

Best Over the Counter Cold Medicine: Advil Cold & Sinus

I am one of those people that gets a cold 2-3 times per year.  When I get them, they are bad.  Really bad.  Not like, "oh I'm a little stuffy," or "I have a scratchy throat."  I go throw on average 3 boxes of facial tissue for the amount of snot my body creates.  It is disgusting.

Combat Flu Season By Making Your Own Hand Sanitizer

It's cold and flu season (and has been for a while).  We heed all the warnings.  Wash your hands, cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands and stay home if you are feeling ill.  Of course, people are also using an abundance of hand sanitizer, which makes your hands dry out.  But, I found one that is alcohol free that you can make at home from jill at onegoodthingbyjillee.com

Online Calculator Determines Your Fitness Age, What’s Yours?

I recently was asked to take a pole dancing class so I could knowledgeably talk about what it was like.  I know I'm not totally out of shape because I run on a regular basis with my husband, but I did find muscles that I haven't used in a L O N G time.  So, I just had to try this online calculator to determine where I was sitting in my "fitness age".  What's yours?
