Omega 3 Knees!

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, the skin! We're on it!!!

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.

The SCOOP ON POOP!

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.

Spring or Allergy season? You can choose!

Welcome to Spring! Or allergy season?

I used to have what I would call 'MAY FEVER.'
Came during the month of May, and ended when May left. Sometimes traveling would flare it up again. Arrrgggghhh.....  I found several very good treatments for this allergy. One of the best was good ol' Vitamin C. About 3000 mg a day would help with the allergy.
Some of the other chemical treatments were just that... and left me feeling groggy, or with stomach upset. I just never knew. But hey... it was only May.

Have a toxic Brain?

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?

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Pick your FIX!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 
Well, we are planning one aren't we?
So now it becomes official, the New Year is here! 
You know for sure because all the diet stuff is being advertised.There are 'new' diets, 'new' foods you should put into your diet, 'old' foods you should never put into your diet, new exercise programs and then the list just gets longer.

We all know if we just do all that is on the list we will live long and healthy lives…. just like last year… right?
 

IODINE…Do you need it?


Thought I would address this as it is timely. We are hearing more and MORE about iodine deficiency.
People are vaguely aware of the role of iodine. In our country we have had what we call the goiter belt, upper midwest. This is where the iodine was so deficient that many people developed goiter, the abnormal growth of the thyroid gland.
To prevent this, iodized salt was introduced and the goiter problem was somewhat resolved.
Now we had a campaign to what...."Lower salt intake!" Do you see a problem may be developing?

The Sluggish Thyroid...

The SLUGGISH THYROID!
This has to be one of my favorite topics!
I have HAD a low functioning thyroid and at my last Dr. appointment I was told to keep doing what I was doing. Well, great... I had been off the thyroid medication for a month at that time. 
I know what you are told if you have thyroid problems; you will be a life long thyroid patient, you will never not be taking medication, that is IF it is diagnosed! I was several years getting it diagnosed, hair falling out, weight gain, no energy, poor hormone balances, freezing to death year round, brain fog, poor female cycles, etc.
