Mug of Bone Broth

Who would have thunk it? Bone broth for hay fever relief. Imagine that! I’ve been drinking bone broth off and on, but recently, I’d say for the past month and a half or so, I’ve been drinking it regularly. One mug of bone broth in the morning has become a daily ritual. There are so… Read More

Getting Ready for 2017

New Year 2017

It’s the end of the year and I’ve been looking through this year’s blog posts. That was real easy to do since I only had 2 blog posts in 2016. To extend my stroll down memory lane, I decided to look through 2015’s posts. That was a little more labor intensive since I had a… Read More

Acupressure

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to deal with the excruciating pain of sciatica. Whenever I felt that all too familiar twinge, I’d massage the back of opposite hip and it would go away.

Pityriassis Rosa

The short answer to the question is I don’t know. Apparently I’m not the only one that doesn’t know, the medical community does not know. Pityriasis rosea is a skin rash. The rash basically affects the back, the torso and may spread to the arms legs and chest. The initial outbreak looks like a circular… Read More

Illness

Obamacare, HIPPA, pre-existing conditions, deductibles, co-insurance, covered or not covered. These are all terms we associate with US health care (or should I say sick care). Whether or not you have insurance, you owe it to yourself to spend some time watching the following video. It’s 1 hour and 12 minutes long, so if you’re… Read More

Keeping Sciatica at Bay

piriformis

After suffering with a long-lasting sciatica flare up, I think I finally know what I should do to keep it at bay. Over the past couple of years I’ve suffered on and off with sciatica. When it first happened, I didn’t know what it was and unfortunately, the chiropractor I regularly visited at the time… Read More

A Sciatica Experiment

On this blog I’ve chronicled my long and painful journey with sciatica. I suffered with sciatic pain for about a year. By finding the right chiropractor that employed deep tissue massage, electronic stimulation, deep heat via ultrasound and prescribed a regimen of exercises, my sciatic problems abated. Along with my chiropractic visits I made regular… Read More
