Sunscreen 101

By Maggie Ney, ND

Mother’s Day Specials!

“To describe a mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power; or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” –  Maya Angelou

As Dr. Sari Eitches recently shared in the Mommy-Me-Time article:

Mommy-Me-Time

By Dr. Sari Eitches

My first mother’s day all I wanted was 2 hours alone. I went to an exercise class and got my hair done. I even took a shower. Alone. With the door closed. It was exhilarating.
