Personal Stories of Triumph, Pain and Everything In-between…

Monthly Archives: January 2015

If you have read my blog, you know I am on a quest to find help for my husband he has Parkinsons with Lewy Body, we are on

a low/carb Keto diet which does seem to help. Right now, he is being rebellious it is so frustrating; his brother is a pharmacist, and he thinks his word is god. I believe that we needboth conventional medicine but in many cases the holistic approach just works.

Case in point: When my mom was alive, she had a lot of health problems that stemmed from her being in a wheelchair. She struggled with pressure sores and that eventually lead to losing her legs. During the last years of her life, she had a pressure sore on her bottom and had to stay down in bed – it just wouldn’t heal and kept getting worse it had gone clear to the bone.

My mom and I would go to the wound care center; they would dress her wound look at it and measure it to see if any progress

was being made, they tried many different treatments but no real response. This went on for close to a year – she developed Mercer in the wound, and that could be fatal. We were desperate…

My brother did his research and found that before all these man-made creams, they used honey. It was antibacterial and had healing properties.

He decided not to ask the doctor and started using honey instead of the cream when bandaging up her wound. It started to heal – and in a relatively short time, it was totally gone. It was amazing – when we finally told the Dr. She was stunned. The Dr. said that they were just starting to experiment with medical honey.

The moral to this story is – there are many things out there that are natural they can do amazing things for our health. I believe in standard medicine, but I also believe in holistic.

A lot of Dr. do not believe in natural cures what a shame.

Whole Turmeric Benefits

Whole Turmeric New Finding.

My daughters just send me a website that talks about Turmeric being able to help with brain regeneration. How exciting…

Long considered impossible to accomplish, new research reveals how a simple spice might contribute to the regeneration of the damaged brain.

Turmeric hands  down one of the, if not the, most versatile healing spice in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits, and an ancient history filled with deep reverence for its  seemingly compassionate power to alleviate human suffering.

I ordered some whole turmeric and some supplements – I am going broke trying to keep up with this but nothing is more important than the health of a loved one…

I have found a wonderful hot cereal for those of us going low carb, Paleo or gluten free.  As we cut our carbs, I was getting tired of the menu and wanted  a change, so I bought this cereal. It is expensive but I thought our health was worth the money.  It has nuts and seeds that is it – I put a little butter and cream in it along with stevia and Walla Delicious. I have tried so many things that were supposed to be good only to be disappointed.

I may seem crazy to write a blog post on this, but that is how much I love the stuff! I hope it will be a good resource for those of you who need a good reference… Happy Eating!

My word for 2015 is empowerment.

Let me explain I read a blog post by Laurel Regan (Alphabet Salad), and she used this method for the year 2014, and it worked for her. The idea is, instead of making New Year’s resolutions set your intention for the year with a word, something that will set the tone for what you want to accomplish in 2015.

What an inspirational idea!

That word just spoke to me, empowerment for me is being able to handle things and be self-sufficient no matter what the circumstance. Believing I can do anything I put my mind to is empowering.

Empowerment is not to ever be the victim to know that my future is built on my decisions and how I navigate life. Even though we cannot get through life without heartache and pain it does make a difference when we can look at things through spiritual eyes.

So yes I say my perfect word for 2015 is…
