    When you sign up to be part of the family, the first assignment on the 30 Day Alive and Healthy Challenge is to look at yourself in front of the mirror, naked, and profess that you love yourself.  I was surprised to find out how difficult this was for some women and even men. I have heard such comments as “I hate my body”, “I am afraid to see what I will see”, “I do not like how I look”, “My hair is too..”, “My nose is…”  and the list goes on. We have this tendency to see only our faults and not what is beautiful. I do not believe that one can start their journey to good health until one can look at that person in the mirror with positivity. 

    I am working on my second book. It has been ten years since the last book. Once in a while I like to share excerpts from the new book on my blog. I leave you with this poem:


    I looked in the mirror the other day and I saw this woman

    This beautiful woman

    And I wondered why I had never seen her before

    I wondered why it never occurred to me that she had a reason for living

    I wondered why it never occurred to me that she didn’t need to have someone define her

    I wondered where she had been all this time

    Yes, I looked in the mirror the other the day

    And oh my God I saw

    I saw someone that needed to be here

    Someone that was meant to be


    The next time you look in the mirror, look at that person carefully and know that she is full of beauty and strength.

    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.
