Specialties

The years Carol spent in various nursing fields allow her to gather a lot of information and experience in those areas. Medical is her expertise because of spending over 40 years in that field.

You must love the career you chose, and hopefully, you love it enough to make it a lifetime of learning. Carol loved her nursing job and the reasons were limitless.

She enjoys researching what practices make the most impact on the human body. For instance, is it traditional/conventional medicine or one of the many varieties of holistic care available to everyone today.

Traditional medicine has come a long way over the centuries, and no one can argue that conventional medicine saves lives. However, so does the more natural route to health and wellness without all the side effects of synthetic medications.

Natural treatments and herb therapies once were thought pure quackery. Traditional doctors are now embracing natural medicine, and these two industries are working together for the benefit of the patient.

Holistic care triggered a new interest in health and wellness for Carol. It demanded she take a more in-depth look at physical fitness, vitamins, minerals, fad diets, nutrition, fast foods, obesity in America, smoking, alcohol, herbs, and the over 200 alternative therapies that do not have the nasty side effects that conventional medicine and treatments frequently display.

She found that the natural route to healing took care of underlying illnesses, while traditional medicine relieved the disease's symptoms.

Interests

Carol is a nurse who recently retired and now has a passion for writing articles in the healthcare field using her many years of experience and what she learned.
