Letter from the Publishers
As the new month begins, we hope that you and yours are well. Because this is Men’s Health month, as well as Father’s Day, I’d like to share a little of my experiences fathering. I married Cindy when I was 40 and inherited her two teenage boys from a previous marriage. While some people expressed concern about my helping to raise stepsons, I don’t think I could have had a better deal. The younger son came with us to Arkansas, while the older stayed with his dad until he started college, and then joined us for a while. They both have their own families now and are successful in their chosen careers.

by Carrie Jackson

Converting Food to Energy
Learning How Metabolism Works
by Linda Sechrist
Metabolism is the process by which the foods and drinks we consume are converted into energy. We may not notice the cellular mechanisms that transform fat and glucose into the oomph in our step, but when they start to wane, we definitely know something is wrong. We may feel lethargic and weak, our brains may get foggy or we may start putting on weight around the belly, with blood pressure, blood glucose and triglyceride levels on the rise. In most cases, modifying our diet is the most powerful way to regain vitality and get those biomarkers back on track.

Keeping Eyes Sharp
A Holistic Approach to Vision Health
by Carrie Jackson
As the windows to the world, our eyes are sensory organs that work overtime. They allow us to take in light, see what is before us and send information for the brain to process. While regular eye exams are important, preventative and proactive maintenance is key to achieving healthy vision. <<click on the photo to read more>>
Building a Better Family
by Julie Peterson
Some dads believe they need to work long hours so that they can purchase better things and go on fancier vacations, but research shows that, outside of escaping poverty, money doesn’t buy happiness. Even for children, it’s not about stuff or destinations; it’s about time spent together. Fortunately, there are men teaching men to embrace the fatherhood role and take action in ways that matter most. <<click on the photo to read more>>
