    Not So Popular

    I remember when I was in high school, I felt that the years dragged on and it took forever for me to graduate. Now that I am older, I feel that the year seems to go quickly. My husband reminds me that one year is still 365 days except for the leap year and that there are still only 24 hours in a day. It feels like it was just yesterday when I was writing the end of the year blog in 2020.

    The last blog of the year is typically devoted to listing the top five read blogs in the past 6 months; however, I have decided to try something new. I am going to repost the least five read blogs. These postings may not have been popular but they have valuable information which I think is worthwhile revisiting.

    Why Walk? – Over 2,000 years ago, Hippocrates stated that “walking is man’s best medicine”. In this blog, the health benefits of walking are discussed.

    Breast Cancer – What Can We Do? One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. In this blog, ways to lower the risk of breast cancer are discussed.

    It Is A Big Deal – When a woman breastfeeds, she is investing in her health as well as the health of the baby. In this blog, the benefits of breastfeeding are discussed. We also learn how we can all play a role in promoting breastfeeding.

    Let Us Talk About PCOS – PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome. In this blog, you will be provided a preview of the writing style of my upcoming book by discussing PCOS.

    Uterine Fibroids – What Do I Need To Do? More and more young people are being diagnosed with uterine fibroids. Although more research needs to be done, this blog discusses ways to reduce your risk of developing uterine fibroids.

    Kujichagulia. This is the second principle of Kwanzaa. In Swahili, it means self-determination. I know that there are things that may be out of our control, but there is so much more that is within our control.  We are all making a difference when we take care of ourselves. When we take care of ourselves, it allows us to take care of others.

    I am looking forward to the coming year with all the possibilities. Like most of you, I am hoping by this time next year COVID-19 will be behind us. Please continue to share the information with anyone that may find what is posted helpful. Thank you for all your support. You motivate me to continue to blog weekly.

    May the Almighty bless all of us and all those who hold our affection. Wishing you and your family peace, love, happiness, and good health for the rest of this year and 2022.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
