The Who, What, and Why of Uncommon Health

What is uncommon health? If you had to describe it, what would you say?

In a world where information is flying at us from every direction, it can be hard to discern what’s accurate, useful, or best when it comes to good health. Everywhere we turn, labels scream the new fads at us. Research tells us today one pill is safe, then tells us 4 months later, it is harmful to us. Diets, exercise equipment, weight loss infomercials and Doctors with talk shows are coming at us with information that is neither well researched, nor is it able to stand the test of time.

Here, on the Uncommon Health blog,  you will find current and up-to-date information about everything associated with physical and mental good health. We will feature everything from simple exercises to firm up your triceps to the latest neuroscience research about happiness. Here, you can follow ongoing research, learn about supplements that really work, explore the emerging options of nootropics (brain enhancing supplements) and techniques for a healthy body and mind that you can implement today. You will find guidelines for fitness regimens, products, authors, and recipes helpful to achieving uncommon physical and mental well-being.

To say something is uncommon is to say it is unusual and extraordinary; something outside the bounds of normal experience or conditions. This is what the Uncommon Health blog offers to its readers.

Along the way, I hope to connect with other uncommon people who are curious about how to achieve uncommonly good health while living in our hurried and stimulus-packed lives.  Share your comments and ideas with me here.

Welcome Aboard! I look forward to meeting my fellow travelers.

About Karen Saint Marie

Hi! I'm Karen Saint Marie. I have worked in the fields of health care, nutrition and mental wellness since 1991. Over the past two decades, I became aware that almost everyone is interested in how to feel better, live better and think better. The problem is, most people find it impossible to prioritize their physical and mental health while juggling family, jobs, and community projects. I have helped many individuals and small groups learn to identify, understand and implement better health and wellness practices. Wellness is a many-fold process. To begin, pick a place to start and get the process going. Being healthy in mind and body doesn't mean spending hours every day focused on healthy living. Instead, it is easier to make healthy living a natural and enjoyable part of our lives. Taking care of our minds means putting the right things in our bodies. It means pushing our minds in fun and explorative ways. Learning about the latest neuroscience and psychological research is helpful. It shows us the easiest ways to keep our brains humming along, well into our later years. Taking care of our bodies means being aware of our movements. It means making good choices for healthy foods, even when we eat out for most of our meals. It doesn't have to be hard, and, it can be a lot of fun. Living a great life doesn't have to come at a high price. It just involves knowing what is needed, and then, doing some small part of that every day. You can contact me at
