Welcome to Watercress Words,
a blog that explores and shares the HEART of health,
like watercress -unique, zesty, and nutritious.
Meet this blogger
I’m Dr. Aletha Cress Oglesby, a family physician and I write this blog.
In my career I have cared for patients from conception through the end of life.
I help my patients and blog readers navigate health care by giving them information and inspiration to transform their health challenges into health successes.
My maiden name is Cress, and when I learned it is a word in the dictionary I was intrigued .
Watercress is one of several types of cress, edible green plants that grow near water and are nutritious. Water is vital to health. So the title Watercress Words seemed to fit a health blog in several ways.
What you will find here
If you are looking for a no nonsense health blog that offers practical, well researched medical information but also has an open mind to the new and unexplored, you’ve come to the right place. I include discussions about
- common and less common medical conditions and treatments
- medical and healthcare history and news
- books and other media about health and medicine
- stories about real doctors and patients
- and sound answers to the questions-“What is health and how can we be and stay healthy?”
