Welcome to Watercress Words,
a blog by Dr. Aletha Cress Oglesby that explores
the HEART of HEALTH ,
like watercress -tangy, peppery and pungent.
As a family doctor, I spend a lot of time thinking and studying about health, and helping people with their health.
I know people have many questions and concerns about their health, and don’t always know where to turn for reliable answers. I hope this blog will help.
I don’t claim to have the definitive answers to these questions but I offer my thoughts, insights, observations, and sometimes opinions , and those of other health care professionals.
On this blog we’ll explore
common and less common medical conditions and treatments
medical and healthcare news and history
books about health and medicine
stories about real doctors and patients
and try to answer the question “What is health and how do we maintain good health?”
My goal is to inform and inspire you as we all explore
the HEART of HEALTH.
