I think that sports, daily chores, school work, and many other activities all added up to a healthy lifestyle.Continue Reading

For the past couple of years the focus of this blog has been on health. For me health is the domain of spirit.

by Don Ingwerson

Tomorrow is Independence Day! Some may ask what The Declaration of Independence has to do with the topic of health. I maintain that it has everything to do with the health of a nation. “Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration of Independence. God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience.
