Internet Not an Option, Now What?
The host, Tamika Cody, has taken a new spin on the podcast, Better Said Than Written. This time around she's decided to "read" a short essay that she thinks sounds better said than written. First up, is Emma Rathbone's article Before the Internet which you can find on The New Yorker's website. Would you know how to fill your day if you didn't have the Internet? Well, there was a time when most of us relied on creativity to occupy our day without the help of the World Wide Web. Emma Rathbone gently reminded readers of what it was like to create dance moves in the spur of the moment, whip out a notebook to create a piece of artwork, and to flip through a booklet to identify a precious stone. The short essay actually sounds Better Said Than Written. So here's a question for you. How would you occupy your day if the Internet wasn't an option?

Kelarius Finex: Holistic Care vs Conventional Medicine
The holistic health profession is on the rise. Many Americans are seeking out holistic and spiritual healers as an alternative to cure their ailments without subjecting their bodies to possible side effects from prescription drugs and going under the knife on the operating table. But how do you know when it's time to seek conventional medical care vs holistic care? In the ninth episode of Better Said Than Written, Holistic Health Practitioner, Kelarius Finex, explains the benefits of holistic care and knowing when to seek medical treatment. Kelarius shares her personal story of how she recently incorporated holistic and spiritual healing while her daughter was going through rigorous treatments for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Kelarius' story goes a little deeper when she opens up about losing her mother to AIDS. Kelarius' mother was 59 when she died from the human immunodeficiency virus in 2014. Her mother fought to live a little while longer through spiritual healing instead of seeking medical treatment while she was living with HIV, which eventually took her life after it transformed into AIDS.
