IMG_2462

Anaphylaxis is a severe, life threatening reaction to an allergen.  It can happen seconds, minutes with full reaction HOURS later (2-28 hours). If left untreated, it can lead to unconsciousness or even death. Yesterday, my son Marcus had an anaphylactic reaction almost immediately after eating his lunch at school, but it was easily dismissed as an upset stomach.  Fast forward 5 hours after ingestion of an unknown allergen, he could barely breath.  Marcus has a myriad of allergies including the top 8 food allergies aka “The BIG 8” – Egg, Milk, Wheat, Soy, Shellfish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, and Sesame.  With Marcus’ extensive allergy […]

Those summer days are finally coming to an end and back-to-school season is in full swing.

It is an emphatic YES!  In fact, in a few weeks you will be seeing some of my blogger friends take that leap of faith. Since I started, I had already lost 10 lbs and was a svelte 127 from simply eating better and exercising more.  Finishing up the UltraShape treatment, I vary  from 116 – 118 lbs, which was last seen […]
