And we are almost into summer...well the calendar says we should be.
Hope your weather is cooperating.
So what are some of your summer plans? Any hikes? Are the knees holding you back?
I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.
I consider most pain optional and I personally like to opt out.
I have addressed this several times, but whenever I experience something positive, I like to share. I want everyone to be as happy and healthy as possible.
ANTI-AGING, we're talking about the skin this time!
I am all for it...naturally of course.
I have several daughters. I spent some time with them this last week and we started talking about skin, wrinkles, premature aging and the rest. The fact is, we ARE going to age, thankfully so as the alternative isn't all that great. The goal here would be to do it in the least painful way possible.
For my age, and I am eternally 59 at this point, I have pretty good skin. So because my daughters are interested in MORE anti-aging info, I thought to share some of what is out there, at least what I have available right now.
Oh, come on! I know there are people who want to know... "IS THIS NORMAL?"
What is normal? Lots of things! Is there anything Abnormal? Several things.
"Disease begins in the colon," according to Dr. Christopher and many others. You haul the garbage out of your house quite regularly, and it is good to get the garbage out of your system regularly also. Sometimes in my mind I just picture an out-house. Any camper has seen one of these. You had to hold your nose to use it. Well, imagine being a walking out- house.
After this month of mourning due to our loss of Robbin Williams, I thought we would hit thisDEPRESSIONtopic.
If you are alive, you no doubt have had a round of this.
No energy, loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness, self loathing, unloved
Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
Loss of interest in daily activities/ no zest for life
Appetite or weight changes, uncontrolled eating
Sleep changes/sleeping beyond normal times, not sleeping
Anger or irritability
In the family we have had an accident which I am not ready to able talk about just yet. But lets say it was an accident and there was brain injury/trauma. So I have been dealing with brain issues for a month or what feels like a lifetime. I have learned soooo much!
Lately, I have been seeing lots and lots of TOXINS and toxins in the brain. So where do these toxins come from? I think mostly life. There are some we can avoid, some we should avoid and others we need to just deal with.
What can we avoid?
Well, we just got our latest bundle of joy!
Little Isabel came a couple of weeks early, but is happy and healthy.
We had a little problem with her bilirubin count, maybe because she was young… then maybe not.
So all this makes me think we need to address some issues about having a baby! I didn't think to tell the mom-to-be what she could do about that biliRubin count BEFORE she had the baby. Her first baby wasn't affected…. Hmm… 'cobbler's kids have no shoes' type syndrome.
Dr. Christopher preached 'good health' of the parents was a prerequisite for a healthy child.
