Belly Dancing Is Exercise!

Who IS That Beauty – Demonstrating Belly Dancing Is Exercise?!

That is my new BFF, Nava, of Nava’s Dance, in Dumfries, Virginia.  She is gorgeous, smart as a whip, and provides classes for women and girls in legitimate, original Middle Eastern dance (which Westerners call “belly dancing”), as well as offering other wellness suggestions and products.  Here is what she says about it:

“My name is Nava and I teach Middle Eastern Dance.   To Westerners, this dance is known as Belly Dance but the term is a misnomer and provides a limited view of authentic Middle Eastern dancing.  Raqs Sharqi (spelled many ways) translated is “Dance Oriental” and evolved from many forms of dances performed in Middle Eastern Countries.


I recently opened a Dance Studio in Dumfries, Virginia for women and girls; if you’d like more information on this culturally rich dance form, stop by for a class.  The next semester begins May 12, 2015.”

Why Am I Featuring Belly Dance On A Wellness Site?

Dancing is very aerobic, meaning it helps increase and circulate oxygen in the body through lively, but moderate exercise.  This not only helps the flow of oxygen, but also blood and lymph fluids, the latter of which is one way in which the body cleanses itself of toxins, and other forms of waste.  Of course, dance also exercises muscles, helps with balance, and gives great fluidity of movement resulting in a graceful appearance.

The beauty of exercising through dance is that it is fun, beautiful to watch, freeing of the spirit, and still gives one the opportunity to learn professional techniques for a centuries-old form of cultural art.  If you live nearby, I hope you will contact Nava.  If you don’t, maybe you can find a dance class near you, even if it is of a different style.

It was the photo above that blew my mind and made me want to feature Skin Care by Carmen!  I hired Carmen Cruz in 1990.  This is 2015; she is 53 years old; and her skin looks better than ever!  I had to know what she is doing and found out it is a combination of things, all of which involve natural approaches.  Want to know how to do it?

What If Your Status At A Hospital Is “Under Observation” – Versus “In-Patient?”

Not Funny!

Not Funny!

This is just a short post.  I was SHOCKED to learn that Medicare and some other insurance WILL NOT PAY for your medical bills, if you are hospitalized, and the staff uses the term “Under Observation” or “Observation Status”  in your records, rather than having admitted you in the status “In-Patient.”

Will YOUR Health Insurance Pay?  This could cost you thousands of dollars, and you may not know about it in advance.  In fact, according to the news report about this, even your physician and other health care providers may be unaware of this.  Therefore, it is your responsibility – or that of the person who has Power of Attorney over you in health care decisions to insist that you be admitted as an In-Patient, if you are going to be kept for any long time period.

Thus, I publish this as an educational note and a forewarning.  Please share it with your family and friends, so they do not get caught in this trap.  (Even young people get sick, get into accidents, are injured in sports, get pregnant,  etcetera; so, it can affect anyone.)

Thank you for sharing!
