"Oh, my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness." Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and you don't know what has happened.




Thoughts are rushing through your mind wondering; Why are you soaking wet? Why are you burning up? Are you sick? Do you have a fever? Did you wet the bed? What is going on?




The next day, you're standing in the kitchen having a regular conversation, and all of a sudden what feels like heat from a blazing hot pizza brick oven, washes over your face and chest. In less than 60 seconds later you're standing there stripped down to your bra in front of the refrigerator not able to get your top back on fast enough. Just as lightning fast as the heat a...

5 reasons women are stuck in the mire of menopause.
By Dr LaKeischa

Why is there so much confusion around how to treat women in menopause? Well, I would postulate that the confusion has been building for some time now. You see if you don't look back on history and the thinking then you are in danger of repeating the outcomes of the past. Isn't that true of anything? And I would dare say that doing the same thing over and over again is the very definition of INSANITY or can I say, making someone re-live the mistakes of the past over and over again could be considered making THEM go insane. For centuries women have been saying that there is another stage in their development that they are experiencing but have been told for years there is nothing to going on....

It's 2022...Can I share my real story?
By Dr LaKeischa

Growing up the daughter of two educators I was nurtured. I often say my dad was my biggest cheerleader and my mom was my coach. When I expressed I wanted to be a doctor, they counseled me to “get around” doctors so that I could see what they do. When it came time to go to college I worked hard and I was 1 of 5 students, during my junior year in college, to be accepted into the Early Selection Program between Oakwood University and Loma Linda University School of Medicine. I graduated with honors.


Fast forward and it was my last year of medical school when I was reacquainted with a former classmate of mine from Oakwood, Wendell McMillan, II. I remember thinking back to biochemist...
