Welcome to  Watercress Words, a blog by Dr.Aletha Oglesby

that explores the HEART of HEALTH.

I am a family doctor, so I spend a lot of time thinking about health, and helping people with their health. But before we can work on health, we should understand  exactly

“What is health?”

“What does it mean to be healthy?”

“How do we become healthy and stay healthy?”

My goal is to  inform and inspire you as we all explore
