Happy Summer

Summer in the Desert is a great time to take stock of your life…clean out your closet, finish that project, join a yoga class, or learn meditation. We are doing just that at Desert Health, starting with our website which contains every article that has ever appeared on our pages Read more…

Celebrating Life

The Heavens certainly have been earning their share of 5-star angels this year, including our beloved Edith Morrey who left us two weeks before her 106th birthday. Our friendship was one of great admiration; she was Desert Health’s biggest fan and I was hers. In our last visit, all she Read more…

“You Just Have to Eat Well”

Today I had the honor of visiting a dear friend who wasn’t feeling herself. She is hardly ever ill, has eaten healthy her entire life, and is my greatest inspiration. I brought her a beloved avocado which, thanks to her, I now eat daily. We spoke about nutritious foods keeping Read more…

The Power of Positive

In every moment of our lives we have the choice to think or say positive or negative thoughts. And those words will not only impact the recipient, but will also impact us. Do you consciously think about how your words will impact those around you? What makes a person choose Read more…

Never Stop Growing

When was the last time you learned something new? One thing I love about Desert Health® is with each issue, I learn something new. But it’s been a while since I invested time into actually learning a new skill. This summer while enjoying Oprah and Chopra’s latest meditation series, Desire Read more…

Moving Health Forward

First and foremost, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who attended the 2017 Desert Health® Wellness Awards in May. It was a spectacular evening as you will see from the photos. We congratulate this year’s winners and all nominees. Keep up the great work in Read more…

Good Health Starts at Home

As I write this, the final bands at Coachella weekend 2 are playing in the background, and I am reminded that when this issue arrives, all the festivals will have moved out and another season will have come to an end. It’s time to “come home” to our inner sanctums, Read more…

Time to Shine

Have you found your groove yet this year? We are almost a third of the way through 2017 and I can’t say I have quite settled in. There just seems to be something in the air…Maybe it’s our unseasonably cold weather or this terrible cold and flu season affecting so Read more…

A Simple Practice for Holiday Stress

Welcome to holidays in the Desert where some of the best weather in the country can be found. We are the envy of our neighbors to the east and a frequent getaway for those to the west. While our lush green lawns and beautiful resorts speak endless vacation, the people Read more…

As 2016 comes to an end, we celebrate another year of progress when it comes to health care built for us, the consumer. As you will read in Health is a Choice, both doctors and our government are starting to realize that drugs aren’t always the answer and are encouraging Read more…

The Desert through the Eyes of a Child

Summer is a time for vacation, families, barbeques and friends. But our toasty temps often keep friends and family – and even many of us – far away from June through August. This summer we were thrilled to have our 7-year-old granddaughter come stay with us for a week. It Read more…

Forever Young

Science has always chased the answer to that lifelong question, “How can we live longer?”, and we may never be closer than we are today.  But is it actually living longer, or living additional years with good health and prosperity? This issue features much of the science from forward thinking Read more…

Moving Forward in the New Year

Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition that dates back to medieval times. We love them because they bring inspiration and hope for a brand new start, but more often than not, they also bring disappointment. What if, instead of resolutions, we set intentions? Think the two words are interchangeable? Read more…

Life: 2016

As we welcome the New Year, we say goodbye to many important people we lost in 2015. Among them is, Gloria Greer, whom I greatly admired as one of our Desert’s original publishers (Sand To Sea 1974), a respected journalist, editor, television host, and champion for her non-profit Act for Read more…
