Attend a Christian church service anywhere in the world this Sunday and take a look around at who’s sitting in the seats.

What will you see?

Almost certainly, more women than men. Women with husbands and families, but also married women attending without their husbands, widowed women, and single women, both young and old. You likely won’t see any husbands who are attending without their wives, or very many single guys.

Pew Research has found that, on average, Christian congregants across the world skew about 53% female, 46% male. In the U.S., surveys show a split that’s even wider: 61% women to 39% men (the gap occurs in every age category, and is thus not due to the fact that women live longer than men). In sheer numbers, what this means is that on any given Sunday in America, there are 13 million more women than men attending church.

Why is this?

Was there ever a time when the gender ratio of Christianity was equal? And if so, why did a disparity between male and female adherents develop?

These are fascinating questions, not only for Christians, but also for anyone interested in the influence of economics and sociology on religion, and who understands the enormous influence religion has had and continues to have on Western culture in general, and conceptions of manhood in particular.

To at least start to answer those questions, we’ve written a book on the subject called Muscular Christianity: The Relationship Between Men and Faith. It explores whether Christianity is inherently more feminine in nature than masculine, how it has become more feminine over time, the brief period in history in which a movement called “Muscular Christianity” flourished, and whether the characteristics of that movement can (and should) be brought back. 

The book is about 100 pages long, and available only on Kindle for $6.99. If you don’t have a Kindle device, you can read on your phone, tablet, or computer as long as you have an Amazon account.

Have you ever felt a strange feeling of being intimidated or having an affinity to a certain person who walked into a room? How exactly does that happen? What is it that makes you feel these emotions (however tentative) about an individual you have never seen in your life? Is it the individual’s mannerisms, body language, clothing or overall appearance?

The fact is that it’s none of these things. It’s the person’s aura that you are reacting to. We often hear people say that someone has a mysterious aura, or a very positive aura etc. So what exactly is an aura? In simple words, an aura is a very powerful energy field that encompasses every living being. It looks like multi-colored luminous patterns. Every person has different colored auras and some of the auras have a more prominent color. These colors are a reflection of our personality.

Every living being has a specific energy field which emits vibrations. These vibrations can uncover the person’s emotional, physical, and spiritual state. Individuals that are sensitive to the vibrations are also able to see the colors of an aura. While it is pretty easy to see auras of other people it isn’t as simple to see your own aura. And understanding it can be even more complex. However, there is a test that can help you determine the actual color of your aura.

The Aura Color Test

This is an online aura color test and you will find a number of sites that have it. In this test, you have to go through the color category statements mentioned below, and if you feel that something resonates with what your true nature is, choose the option “yes”. It’s important that you choose yes or no for statements that describe you best.

The answers shouldn’t be based on what people expect you to be or think you should be. Doing this will only alter the results, and won’t give you a clear idea about your true aura color. Go through the following color category statements and answer the questions. The color category that has the maximum number of yes’ responses is your aura color.

Once you have answered all these questions and clicked on “get result”, the color of your aura will show up there. Take a look at what the different colors mean:


Color Key


These are the different colors of the aura and what they indicate. Every color is associated with certain attributes and personality traits that can help you read yourself in a better way.


Red- Survival-oriented, strong-willed, and passionate.


Orange- Creative, adventurous and energetic.


Yellow- Intelligent, optimistic, and easy-going.


Green- Sincere, balanced, and communicative, and sincere.


Blue– Caring, collected and calm.


Indigo- Creative, intuitive and sensitive.


Violet- Artistic, authoritative, and spiritual.

Sometimes, you might get more than just one color category with the same number of ‘yes’ responses. This occurs because every individual has multiple aura layers. It’s possible that you will have two very distinct aura colors. Once you know your aura color/s, it will help you enhance your spirituality and consciousness and improve your inner energy levels significantly.

If you’re about to have breast lift surgery or a breast reduction, you’ve probably already heard all there is to know about recovery. Except what kind of bra to wear post-surgery, that is.

When you’re recovering from any type of breast surgery, you’re going to need a specific medical bra to make sure you’re comfortable and that your breasts are healing properly. There are so many different types of recovery bras out there, so let’s take a look at a few of your options.


This bra is probably the most commonly chosen recovery option out there. It’s designed to give you the perfect amount of comfort, compression, and support. Typically, bras are hooked at the back, but when you have surgery, it may be hard to reach around and clip everything in place. With the front-closure option, you can easily be protected without straining any muscles. They’re super easy to slip on and off. The fabric of these bras is stretchy, which allows you to be 100% comfortable during the recovery process.


Another popular choice is a sports bra. Many women actually opt for this over a front-clasp after surgery. It provides the wearer with the desired amount of support and compression. If you decide to go down this route, make sure you find a bra that is made of breathable fabric and doesn’t have any underwire. Speak with your doctor to see if this is the best option for you. Your doctor may even decide to switch you from another bra to this one after you’ve been in recovery for a few weeks. Breast reduction surgery usually takes about two or three hours, so make sure whoever is at the procedure with you has your post-op bra on hand following that time.

Mastectomy Bras

If you have a mastectomy, you’re going to want a bra specifically for that surgery. These types of bras feature pockets that can hold the forms or prosthesis in place. Many women choose to use this type of bra well after surgery since they’re perfect for healing.

Breast surgery can be a lot to handle, but as long as you’re prepared, everything can go fairly well. Make sure you have the right bra on hand for post-op! If you’re unsure of which to choose, take a look at a few of the suggestions above.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about showing more skin this summer, you might consider a surgical procedure to enhance your look! Your procedure can be customized to meet your needs and help you achieve the best version of yourself, so you can enjoy your summer to the fullest. Here are some of the most popular surgical procedures for summertime:

Breast Augmentation

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your breasts due to genetics, pregnancy, age, or weight loss, you’re not alone! The breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery, used to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. Whether you want a modest increase in volume or a more voluptuous look, the breast augmentation can be customized to help you look and feel your best. A new option is fat transferred to the breast. This doesn’t give an implant look but it can give you a natural appearing augmentation with enhanced cleavage.

Tummy Tuck

The abdominal area can be difficult to tone due to excess skin and weak abdominal wall tissue caused by pregnancy, aging, or weight loss. But with the tummy tuck, you can have this excess tissue eliminated to reveal a toned contour. A tummy tuck can take inches off your waist, so you can feel more comfortable wearing the clothes that fit you and not the extra skin.


We all have a genetically determined problem areas that gain weight first and lose weight last. Unlike regular fat, stubborn fat can be nearly impossible to remove without a surgical procedure. If you find yourself stuck with stubborn fat even after diet and exercise, liposuction can help you achieve the sculpted contours you want. Liposuction can be used in the abdominal area, flanks, thighs, upper arms, bra area and under the chin.

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian butt lift allows you to enhance your backside while combining the benefits of liposuction! During the procedure, fat is taken from another area of the body such as the abdomen or flanks and placed in the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape and contour.

Dr. Perry can help you decide which procedure is right for you, so you can look and feel your best this summer. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.

One of the chief causes of aging skin is the gradual age-related breakdown of an important skin component called collagen. You may be familiar with collagen as a common ingredient in many skin care products. Its role in your skin is being a structure for healthy, youthful skin to build around. It adds volume and plumpness to your skin. The gradual loss of collagen due to the aging process will inevitably lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. While these common signs of aging will happen sooner or later, you can prevent them from happening early or even turn back the clock when they have already made their presence known thanks to treatments like Ultherapy®.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the use of ultrasound to counteract the effects of gravity. The procedure will utilize your body’s own rejuvenation response to gently lift the skin tissue. It can also be used to smooth wrinkles and lines.

When it comes to lifting the skin, Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for this purpose. The procedure works through the use of ultrasound imaging, allowing us to see tissue layers and ensure that energy is directed where it will do the most good.

Can It Replace a Facelift?

No. Ultherapy® cannot replace the results of a facelift. This procedure is for the treatment of the foundational layer of skin. However, if you are seeking to extend the duration of previous cosmetic surgery or are not yet prepared for surgery, Ultherapy® may make an appropriate alternative treatment.

How Does It Work?

Ultherapy® works by stimulating your body’s own production of collagen. The procedure focuses ultrasound energy at an appropriate temperature for the regeneration of collagen. This effectively jump-starts a process called neocollagenesis, which is the production of new collagen fibers.

Your results after your Ultherapy® treatment will continue to build for months afterwards. During this time, your body will be rebuilding its own natural collagen. The time it takes to do so depends upon many variables.

Consult with our team at the office of Joseph A. Russo, MD in Newton, MA to get all the facts about Ultherapy® treatment in the Boston/New England area. Contact us today to book your appointment.

While fibroids are very common and non-cancerous tumors, many women feel uncomfortable or uncertain speaking openly about them. Often, there’s silence around symptoms like uncontrolled bleeding, excessive pain, sexual discomfort or fertility issues. But talking about the problem is crucial. Not just to help with feelings of anxiety or isolation, but to shine the light on a problem that affects millions of women.

You aren’t alone. 1 in 4 women will have fibroids at some point. Chances are, a friend, co-worker, or family member has fibroids and has shared your struggle. By talking to others, we find support, education and encouragement. You may also hear about fibroid treatment options or advances other women are exploring or have experienced.

If you are interested in openly joining the fight against fibroids, consider getting involved with COMPARE-UF. This registry is a patient-driven organization designed to bring women together and share their fibroid treatment experiences. The data, coordinated by the Duke Clinical Research Institute, will be used to help future patients make more informed decisions about their own treatment plans. We still have so much to learn about the treatment of uterine fibroids. By disclosing your treatment experience, you can actively help defeat this affliction.

If talking freely about fibroids just doesn’t feel right, you can still join the conversation
by visiting Here, you’ll find patient videos from a broad spectrum of women discussing fibroid issues, fibroid surgery and a non-surgical treatment approach called ‘fibroid embolization’. Many of the interviews come from women who have lived with fibroids for years or endured multiple surgeries before finding non-surgical relief. You can learn more about embolization by contacting the Fibroid Treatment Collective at (800) 645-6095.

Dealing with fibroids doesn’t have to be a lonely endeavor. Engaging with others to discuss symptoms, share stories and evaluate treatment options truly helps us feel more in control of fibroids and more confident about the steps we take to deal with them.

The human energy field which is also referred to as the human aura; it’s something every each human being has. This luminous body is a manifestation of energy, surrounding our physical body being. Our aura has a direct connection to the energy vortices of our body which are the seven Chakras. In essence, when you see aura colors, you are seeing the chakras as well.

All the different colors of our aura seem like they are originating from the chakra and then blend in creating an energy field around the body. Most people are under the impression that only aura healers or alternative healers are able to see auras. But the fact is that it isn’t difficult to see an aura. You don’t really have to be particularly sensitive or a psychic to learn how to see and feel the human energy field that surrounds us.

Most of us, without realizing it have already experienced or felt the auras of other people. For instance, there are times when you feel extremely uncomfortable in the presence of a person, or get emotionally affected when you are in larger crowds. These are times when you have felt the auras of people around you.

The simple fact is that your seven chakras, and your aura pick up information from the energy fields of people you come in contact with, or those who are around you. But this is just an unintentional manner in which you have experienced or felt the auras of others. You can also do this consciously or in an intentional way. Let’s take a look at how you can see your chakras and auras.

How To See Your Charkas And Auras

While it isn’t very difficult to see an aura, it’s something that takes practice. The best way to start out with learning how to see chakras and auras is to see your own aura. At the outset, only the lower layers would be visible to you. However, with practice you will be able to develop the ability to easily see all the higher levels of the chakras and auras as well.

  • In order to carry out this exercise, you will need to sit in a very quiet room that has a white or light colored wall.
  • It’s a good idea to try out this exercise at dusk or when the light is low. This is the time when your eyes would need to switch to night vision.
  • Start by sitting a distance away from the white wall.
  • Make sure your back is supported by a high-back chair, and position your feet very flat on the ground.
  • Start by breathing deeply and slowly and take a few minutes to connect with your inner self as you relax completely.
  • Now slowly extend one arm and let your palm face the wall in front of you. At this point of time make sure your fingers are together.
  • Now slowly soften your gaze without looking away from your hand.
  • Continue holding your gaze for about 30 seconds and you will start to see an energy field all around your hand.
  • Now spread your fingers apart very slowly and continue looking at them with the soft gaze.
  • Slowly shift your gaze to the space between the fingers and you will notice a soft light of energy around your entire hand.
  • With a certain amount of practice you will be able to see a darker outline around the hand as well as around your fingers.
  • Initially, this appear like a heat wave and will be almost colorless. However, with time and practice you will be able to see the various colors of your aura.
  • It’s important that you be patient and observe. There really is nothing to strive for and it’s more a matter of learning how to see auras.
  • Just be there in the moment and focus softly on your hand as well as your fingers and the space between them.
  • Over time, you will be easily able to conduct this exercise in any light conditions, as well as in the daytime and you won’t need to use a white background either.

Seeing Chakras and Auras of Other People

  • For this particular exercise, you will have to take the help of a friend and will also need a quiet room with a light or white colored wall.
  • Have your friend stand against one of the white walls. They don’t need to touch it but just need to stand very close to it.
  • Stand away from your friend so you can see him or her right from head to toe; this should include the white space behind the person.
  • Focus on how your feet have been placed firmly on the ground and then breathe deeply and slowly as you connect deeply with your breath. Now, simply close your eyes and continue breathing deeply for a few seconds.
  • Now open up your eyes, glance at look at your friend with a soft focus that encompasses the entire body. Continue looking softly and passively even as you notice whatever emerges.
  • Do not try to see anything and just look at what is being presented to you.
  • Very slowly, you will start to see the energy field around the head and upper body. These are the areas of the chakras that are easiest to see.
  • At first the chakra and aura will appear colorless almost like heat waves.
  • With practice and time, you will eventually start to see the colors and wouldn’t need a white background to see the colors emanating from the chakras.

As mentioned at the outset, it isn’t difficult for anyone to see auras. All it takes is some time and practice and you will be able to see the chakras and the colors of the auras. Learn how to see these is the easy part. It’s far more challenging to learn how to understand what these colors mean.

One of the best ways to learn how to read an aura is to understand what the colors mean. However it is important to keep in view that aura colors are never static. They continue changing right through the day, with different blockages in the body, every emotion and body pattern. This is why the auras that emanate from the chakras are ever-changing.

Most people neglect taking care of their skin while they are young. For many, they only take care of their skin when they start seeing issues like skin aging and all. Well, we must drop that notion. It is best to take care of your skin before it’s too late.

Here are some tips on how to keep your skin young:

  1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY. Sunscreen is like the Number 1 factor of skin aging. Doesn’t matter if you get outside of the house or inside, still wear sunscreen. 85% of aging is photo-aging, so you must protect your skin from the sun. Especially when you’re out under the sun, you must reapply sunscreen every couple of hours. You must remember though that different skin complexion requires different SPF.
  2. GET A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. Your skin also needs pampering. Get a professional to do that at least every quarter if you can’t do it once a month.
  3. USE PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS AT HOME REGULARLY. It does make sense that you also use the same products where you got your facial from when you’re at home. Most over the counter skin products do not the work the same for every skin type whereas when you use the same products that your skin care salon is using, you’re sure that they are meant for your skin type. Besides, it’s always a good thing to ask the professionals.
  4. GIVE YOUR SKIN A MAKEUP BREAK. Makeup is also a factor of skin aging so as much as possible, don’t wear too much makeup products on your skin and always wear sunscreen underneath your makeup. Don’t forget to put some sunscreen on your neck, décolleté, ears and eyelids as well.
