The other day I did something so stupid that I had to laugh through the pain. I was half-awake (or half-asleep for the more pessimistic among us) and had just boiled some water in my electric kettle for coffee. I was preparing to put the hot water into a French press cuz once you have… Continue reading Feel the Burn But Not for Long!
I used to think that it was completely normal to have burps that smelled and tasted like grass when I’d do a wheatgrass shot from a local juice store. I often wondered if this is what cows had to deal with every day. Even though I know that wheatgrass shots are good for me, I… Continue reading What to Do if You Don’t Like Wheatgrass
The first day of June was a beautiful San Diego day; it was the kind of the day that this area is known for. Barely a cloud in the sky, about 72 degrees with a gentle breeze coming off the ocean. I had an appointment to get my first thermogram from MyPinkImage in Solana Beach… Continue reading Breast Cancer Scare, Part 1
I’ve been completely overwhelmed with health information lately. Maybe you’re feeling the same way. One doctor/report says to eat flax seed, the other says to stay away from it at all costs. One doctor says it’s so healthy to eat soy but the other doctor says no. The same thing is true from my friends:… Continue reading A New Action Plan for Mental and Physical Health
Looking for an easy and forgiving juice detox plan? Look no further than the book mentioned in this short review.

I must stress the word completed because before I discovered Immrama Institute, I would have started but never finished any course no matter how interested I was in the topic. At my age, I was finally diagnosed with ADD–it’s not that I didn’t know this already but I… Continue reading Brainwave Technology: The New Wave in Complementary Health
Some time in the late summer, I bought a Breville juicer and I made juice daily for about a week, and then I stuck the juicer in storage and promptly forgot about it until just yesterday when I decided I was going to do a juice cleanse. I had purchased the book detox juicing by… Continue reading ‘Grape Expectations’ Grapely Exceeds My Predictions
I’ve been to many chiropractors before but none have the same system as Dr. Michael Berry of La Costa Chiropractic. When I walk into Dr. Berry’s office, I am greeted like an old friend. Diane not only remembers my name (gasp, in this day and age?) but even though she hasn’t seen me in a… Continue reading Pain, Pain Go Away, Don’t Come Back Another Day
I shouldn’t be complaining but here I go: my back hurts like hell. I have been taking megadoses of ibuprofen for quite a few days. Yes, I know the side effects, and yes, I also know that even though the medication is not really improving the situation much, it does take the edge off. Without… Continue reading Back to Back Pain
Don’t ever get into the position of having to get private health insurance. Spent 2 hours on the phone yesterday with a health insurance company going over and over and over again every little detail I had already typed into their application, which, oddly enough, took me 2 hours on the computer to fill out.… Continue reading Do I Get to Make a Call?
