My passion for health and wellness began in 2013. My son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2.

Does Sea Breeze Promote Hair Growth?

By Cassandra Wiley | May 2, 2019

Since I work out regularly and I have a tendency to get dandruff, my hair stylist recommended that I apply Sea Breeze astringent to my scalp to clean it. When I  work out in the morning, I don’t have time to wash my hair and get to work on time.  Even when I’m not working…

Surprisingly, they were…

Thanksgiving: A Time for Family or a Tradition of Men?

By Cassandra Wiley | November 17, 2018

I have many fond memories of Thanksgiving both as a child and an adult.  In school, they taught us that it was a day that the Indians and the Pilgrims ate together for the first Thanksgiving dinner in 1621.  It was a time for family, football, delicious food, and days off from work and school.…
