With all of the health risks facing today’s women there are so many reasons you need to be well-informed. Every book, every article, every ‘expert’ claims to hold the key to your health. Only YOU hold the key to your health and only you can make important decisions that will lead to a healthier, more full life for you, your loved ones and your family. Our job is to bring you the information. Your job is to use it as you see fit.

Poor choices in nutrition, fitness and lifestyle affect women’s health. Heart disease, strokes, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer are just a few of the diseases that affects women’s health world-wide. Unfortunately, it is hard to find advice grounded in scientific fact and very easy to find contradictory information.

We make it a policy on Alive and Well to talk with guests who have done their research and can then present it to you, our listeners. We look for advice and experts that are backed by research and common sense. When we are desperate for a change, common sense can quickly take a back seat to fear. It is easy to get caught grasping at straws when it comes to changing an undesirable health information.

Correct and up-to-date health, fitness and nutritional information needs to be an increased priority for women all over the world. Today’s Woman is here to help. Did you know that there is generally a 15-year lag between new information being uncovered by research scientists and that same information making it to the main-stream? Alive and Well is here to shorten that time. With your help we can change the world. Your up-to-date, research-backed, common-sense-grounded fitness, health and nutrition information is welcome on our show. Please feel free to contact us with your show ideas and input.
