A Last Look Back at 2013…

reflex_eyeThis past year, we hit a couple of milestones on a single day: this blog’s fifth anniversary and our 1000th post. While this was one of the year’s big highlights for us, it doesn’t tell the whole tale.

What tells a bit more is our expanding readership, which has accessed Know Thy Health from more than 100 countries – though most come from the US, UK and Canada, understandably enough. Many thanks to all of you who check in here regularly, and who have liked, commented and shared!

In fact, this year brought nearly double the number of shares as last year – critical to helping us continue to grow and reach more people who seek to regain, sustain or enhance their health and well being through a comprehensive biological approach that honors the indivisibility of body, mind and spirit, its inherent wisdom and ability to self-regulate and heal.

That’s the gist of what we do here, which can also be seen through our annual look at what you all were looking at most on this blog in 2013. But first, we begin with the usual snapshot via the first sentence of each month:

  • January: Sugar has one thing going for it: It makes things taste good….
  • February: The very act of selling creates expectations….
  • March: Doctors are human….
  • April: As I’ve mentioned before, there are no silver bullets….
  • May: Do you ever wonder why some people don’t believe facts, despite all evidence?…
  • June: Something you might see every day: babies and toddlers exploring their world by putting stuff in their mouths….
  • July: You know what Soylent Green is….
  • August: There comes a time in all our lives when we come up against a circumstance that forces us to look at the old patterns, habits, and beliefs that no longer serve the heart and soul of who we are….
  • September: The easiest excuse for not eating organic: It’s too expensive….
  • October: As Dr. V likes to say, the best teeth are the ones you’re born with….
  • November: What better time than the day after Halloween to have a National Brush Day, right?…
  • December: The human body is a nonspecific sounding board for the daily assault of environmental irritants and toxins….
