Serrapeptase to the Knee Rescue

It appears that serrapeptase is the solution to my current knee problem. Earlier I wrote about the problems I was having with my knee. In summary, it was popping and swelling and making it difficult for me to perform my usual daily tasks. Chiropractic visits seemed to temporarily improve things but it didn’t completely solve… Read More

Major Oops!

Deleted Subscriber

If you’ve visited A Dose of Health a time or two in the past, you may notice there are a few interface changes here. I switched up my blog theme and am still in the process of tweaking it (I’m not satisfied with the way it looks just yet). Anyway, my big oops is a… Read More

Frankincense Essential Oil

With all of the benefits of using frankincense essential oil, who knew it was a natural cure for pink eye. Just recently I came down with a case of conjunctivitis, aka pink eye.

Blurry Vision

From my experience, I think adopting a ketogenic lifestyle will cause temporary blurred vision in some people. I noticed that after I went on an LCHF ketogenic way of eating my vision started to get blurry. I wear reading glasses and at times they didn’t seem strong enough. There were times I would put them… Read More

My Weight Loss Journey

Low Carb High Fat

As I travel along on my dietary journey, I continue to learn quite a bit about food and how our bodies handle food. Sometimes the information I read seems conflicting, but when I really take the time to understand what I’m learning, one underlying theme seems to hold true no matter what I learn. That… Read More

The Back

My loc journey began on the evening of May 11, 2017. After washing my short TWA I watched it coil up and decided, “Why fight it?” I might as well twist my hair and allow it to do what it’s been wanting to do for decades…lock. So, I took each individual coil and twisted it… Read More

Before I go onto the next leg of my natural hair journey, I wanted to share this leg of the journey before I forget. When I decided to allow my natural hair to grow (no longer buzzing it off every 2 to 3 weeks to a ¼ inch of growth), I realized I needed to create… Read More
