Exercise RX

The frustrating thing about pain, is that it comes on so damn quickly. I can be feeling ‘ok’, and then BAM! Everything hurts. For me, it feels like there is a wave of pain, flowing through my body moving from joint to joint. Then they all hurt. It’s frustrating to say the least. My hands seem to get the brunt …

D-E-T-O-X

Over the past month while I have been out of work, besides recovering from surgery which has been going swell, I have put a major effort into healing and especially helping my body detoxify itself.

Foray into Functional Medicine

I’ve had it with ‘conventional’ medicine. I’ve had it with doctors appointments where I come prepared, knowing information about my disease, but feel like I’m more well versed than the professional.

Lemons lemons everywhere…

For the past two weeks I have been in the process of doing Megan Rand, Ginger Newtrition’s Spring Detox. It was not a detox where you don’t eat, or only drink water, or juice, or starve.
