Does an apple a day, keep the doctor away?

Soon we may know the truth.

As bloggers, we often read posts on how to manage our time, run our business, and/or learn how to improve on our blogging skills, but we often forget about our health.

We could make tens of thousands of dollars from blogging, engage in beach blogging, or even quit our full time jobs, but without our health, we have nothing.

That’s where this week’s NBOTW comes in.

I’ve seen her comments on a few of my favorite blogs. Her “bedside” manners are exquisite.

I’ve been reading her blog. Her posts are informative and fact based.

In her blog she shares from many years of schooling and many years in the medical profession.

This week’s NBOTW is a doctor.

She share ideas and tips on what foods to eat, how to reduce stress by knitting, how smiling can prevent heart disease, computer and desk ergonomics, help for seasonal depression , plus numerous other topics written by herself and/or a writer from her “featured writers” page…professionals also engaged in the world of health/fitness.

Although a website should never replace your family doctor (see her disclaimer), this site is filled with fantastic information on health and fitness.

This weeks NBOTW is: Kitchen Table Medicine. The editor-in-chief is Dr. Nicole Sundene, Naturopathic Physician.

Join me in welcoming Nicole to the community here at BWAB.

Hello Dr. Sundene!

Remember to stop by her blog and check out her health based posts, and share in the conversations.

    Hi Barbara – What an excellent choice for NBOTW. It’s an excellent blog. I had no idea that desserts were all that fattening. I knew they were bad but not that bad.

    Hi Catherine,

    Her blog is filled with great information to make us all healthier.

    Check out the post about seasonal depression too. She gives great advice on what causes it and how to “cure” that naturally.

  3. Well, I’ve already given up desserts. So what’s next? Giving up apples? How many calories do they have? :)

    This is a very good choice for NBOTW. We don’t pay nearly enough attention to our health these days. Congrats, Nicole!

  4. Great choice, Barbara. And welcome Nicole — I stumbled on your site.

  5. Hi Barbara!

    Just wondering whose blog you saw me on? I have dilligently stalking the healthy recipe bloggers to find good links for my readers. Thanks so much for the blog love! I really appreciate it…I’m sure you all know how stressful it can be at ground zero to put a new blog together so positive feedback does help motivate the process of moving all these random odds and ends along. I am still piloting out my blog with friends and family before launching full force so it is great to know that some more experienced bloggers are on my page now. The blog is going under a re-design and hopefully we will have all the “bugs” worked out in the next month or so…any feedback is always welcome.

    Everyone is also always welcome to e-mail or post their alternative medicine questions or topic ideas for future articles…especially if you don’t already see it in the archives!

    So nice to meet you all!

    ~Dr. Nicole

    Hi Hunter,

    I don’t think you have to give up apples. They are loaded with nutrients and fiber. Some may suggest that eating organic is better due to the pesticides.

    Hi Akemi,

    Glad to see you agree.

    When you do your life coaching, do you talk about health and fitness too?

    Welcome Dr. Nicole,

    I’ve seen you on both NezSez and Creative Journey Cafe (Mark Penta’s blog). Ironically both Nez and Mark have been a NBOTW.

    It is extremely stressful to start a blog as there is so much to learn. The best advice I can give is take your time and enjoy the journey. Make you blog a site/home that you enjoy looking at (you’ll be doing a lot of that).

    I’ll be following you in my reader, and will drop in occasionally and comment.

    Questions here are always welcome, so feel free to ask. Or, drop me an email.

    Welcome to the community here at BWAB.

  8. Barbara, I love Dr. Nicole’s blog. The seasonal depression article was very helpful as for the 1st 20 years of my life I lived in Hawaii and didn’t have to deal with winters, but now I struggle with them.

    Must be the week of specialized doctor blogs. I’m in the process of launching a blog with research articles from doctors that focus on endurance nutrition.

    Hi Sterling,

    I think it’s a great blog, filled with tons of valuable information.

    Seasonal depression is more common than it’s written about. I have a friend who uses the light box and has great success with that.

    I’m on my way to check out your new blog. Sounds fascinating!

    Hi Sterling,

    I just checked out the new blog you launched. What a great job. It’s very impressive.

  11. Thanks Barbara. Still a work in progress, but the clients are happy that they can make updates themselves through the blog rather than waiting for me to update their corporate website.
