Ideas are supported by the way we view life.  Our experiences determine our own philosophy. Exchanging ideas gives us perspective.  And our perspective is what makes us unique!

Cómo extraño la cultura del color, del olor, de la familiaridad de la comida  y la posibilidad de poder expresar un sentimiento, una filosofía, con el poder de un dicho.  Cuando reflexiono, me doy cuenta que he educado a mi hijo con la filosofía característica del mexicano: sentida, amable, apasionada y sobre todo humorística.

Desde el típico a ’darle que es mole de olla’, hasta al ‘camarón que se duerme se lo lleva la corriente’  los dichos ‘son un aliviane’ para nosotras l...

Lejos de ser el típico refrán con el que todos crecimos, los hechos científicos que lo corroboran son claros y concisos.  La nutrición en los niños es la base para el desarrollo físico e intelectual.

A todos nos gusta comer.  Lo difícil es comer sano.  Como padres, ¿cuántas veces hemos batallado con nuestros hijos para que coman saludable?   No es difícil enseñarle a nuestros hijos a comer fruta…  después de todo, habemos muchos que crecimos comiendo con una refrescante agua de s...

We think and talk a lot about how symptoms of heart attacks differ in women, and that is a crucially important topic.

Furthermore, rapid emergency treatment of heart attacks means fewer heart attacks are fatal or debilitating.

Turns out our parents were right: Eat your fruits and vegetables and exercise!  With the just released information from the CDC regarding the obesity epidem...

Women’s health research is not a feminist issue… it’s a survival issue. 

We ARE different.  Could it be that feminist phenomena and the breaking of several glass ceilings have led to the perception that men and women are equal?  We ARE, but we are also different; which is NOT the same.  We are not just small men.

Women’s health is not a perception.  We live under a hormonal dictatorship.  We go through hell and back EVERY MONTH, except of course when we are pregnant,...

So many have asked me what the biggest challenge throughout my career has been. Being fully bilingual, the easiest way to explain it has been through grammar -not that I even remember nouns, adjectives or what-have-you. ​

In Spanish we say 'sweater orange'; in English, 'orange sweater'.  The fact that I just couldn't think 'orange sweater' without thinking twice - or working twice used to be extremely frustrating. Until I realized that thinking 'sweater orange' was actually my st...

Considering that only 10% of happiness (or unhappiness) comes from life circumstances that we cannot control, and 50% is already in our genes, what about the 40% of happiness that we CAN control?
