For those who have no clue who Bob Marley is (which I’m sure is not many people), his full name was Robert Nesta Marley. He was a Jamaican singer and songwriter and one of the biggest influencers of reggae music. He was an ambassador for reggae all over the world. Unfortunately, in May of 1981, Bob Marley died at just 36-years-old from a rare form of skin cancer called acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM). I am fairly certain that prior to Marley’s death, many people were unaware of this type of skin cancer.

Many people have surgeries performed while vacationing abroad. “Patients who travel to another country to seek health care are referred to as medical tourists.

Purchase of these products, like with most supplements, does not usually require any prescription or clearance from a doctor.
It is estimated that more than two billion people globally have one or more nutrient deficiencies. A nutrient deficiency occurs when we fail to get adequate amounts of the six basic nutrients we need to remain healthy. And as I always like to reiterate, our bodies need a balanced amount of these nutrients to stay healthy.
Have you ever heard someone refer to another person as “skinny fat?” If you are not familiar with this oxymoron, skinny fat essentially means that a person looks skinny but actually has a body with little muscle and a high amount of fat.
My Brain Told Me I Was Skinny When I Was Fat! And When I Lost Weight, It Told Me I Was Fat. Go figure!!2 years ago
Some of the questions I get asked a lot since I lost weight are:
You are probably familiar with how uncomfortable it is to get salt in your eye or in an open cut on your body. So if I were to suggest you try salt therapy, you might be a bit hesitant if you do not know what it entails.
Do you remember when coconut oil became one of the most popular “health foods” on the market? People could not seem to get enough of this supposed miracle oil!
Models face tremendous scrutiny when it comes to their weight and appearance, especially female models. They are often criticized as being either “too fat” or “too thin.”
