Health and Discernment

Fad Diets Don’t Work

Over the years, I’ve been rebuilding myself. As I make improvements, I can’t help but think of the old TV show, The Bionic Woman.  The major difference between my transformation and Jamie Sommers (Lindsay Wagner’s Bionic Woman character) is I’m rebuilding myself using nutrition while she used high-end metals and technology. Although she was superhuman… Read more

Natural Treatment of a Bone Spur

Bone Spur x-Ray

If you have ever suffered from a bone spur, you know just how painful it can be. The pain can be debilitating and life-altering.

Essential Oil Diffuser for the Car

What a nice idea! A vehicle essential oil diffuser. I don’t know about you, but I’m not too crazy about the inexpensive pine tree or other fresheners that folks hang from their rearview mirrors. The spray fresheners aren’t much better in my opinion. They’re supposed to make the car smell good, but either they’re too… Read more

As a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, I feel it necessary to share publicly an article that I’ve been sharing privately among my friends and family.  I’ve mentioned the author, Andrew W.  Saul, in prior posts here on ADOH, but he deserves another shout out. I’ll get straight to the point.  I’m not only… Read more

Back health is important to everyone, but it wasn’t until I suffered for years with sciatica, that I realized just how important back health is. I shared my sciatica saga here on the blog.
