Juice, Juice, Juice! - Like most Americans, I do not get my daily six to nine servings of fruits and veggies everyday, but one way to change that is by juicing on a daily basis. My favorite recipe is a combo of kale, apple, carrots and beets. Even better: Not all juicers are expensive either. There are juicers to fit in everyone’s budget.(Photo: Detroit Free Press/MCT/LANDOV)

What If It Gets Infected? - If you are dutiful and patient during your recovery, your piecing probably won?t get infected.
