The Healing Journey

Recently, I got into a heated argument with a friend.  Not the shouting sort of argument.  This was like a disputation instead.  We were discussing scientific fact and scientific fiction.  And how to determine what is crank science and what is real. Our opinions were very far apart. 

This friend is a lawy...

Healthcare, as most people think of it in 2019 in the USA, consists of regular visits to a doctor to take tests to check your vitals.  When things go amiss, more frequent visits with the doctor prescribing medications or surgery are required.  Sometimes you see the doctor for crisis care.  And for those who have chronic diseases, you go more frequently to manage your...

The Wood Wide Web

Now that we have arrived at the height of the season, what a fabulous green spring it has been.  Treading daily along paths of flowering shrubs and perennials to check what has come into bloom, it’s like taking a walk through splendor every single day, the colors, the scents, the smells. 

Though the trees and bushes are best viewed, of cours...

In Every Wood, In Every Spring…

“In every wood, in every spring, there is a different green,” wrote JRR Tolkien long ago, sitting by his library wood fire, his hand moving slowly over parchment.    

Every spring is unique.  This season revealed its singularity early on by its lingering cold and frequent rain.  Cold weather, I always feel, is harder to be...

It sure has been an unseasonable cold and wet spring, this year.  Unpleasant, even, at times, during the day to day passage of time.  It was a shocking feeling to still be turning on the heat for a few minutes here and there during the final days of May.  Memory eludes me of needing to do that so late in spring in years previous.  Nor is my vegetable garden yet in th...

This week we have arrived at the height of late spring.  I love this week, each year, when the peonies, rhododendrons and early hydrangeas are in bloom simultaneously, all competing for our attention with their generous flower-heads.  There are carpets of roses climbing as high as they can, on fences, trellises and trees, showing off every one of their blooms.  The c...

March lived up to its reputation this year as a month of chaotic transition.  Vaulting past a few weeks of false spring that the North East savored in February, it returned us to the depth of winter with a blizzard mid-month.  It was a season full of changes, drops of temperature back to the single digits, howling wind storms, blowing snowstorms and finally, on the v...

I woke up this morning with a song of happiness in my heart, grateful again for the glorious sunshiny days of early March and the quality of the light piercing through the leafless trees.  Indeed, during the last two weeks, as February transitioned into March, and New York State enjoyed the refreshing weather of a false spring, the outdoor world has been beckoning ha...

 In the coming weeks, I'll be adding exciting links about programs and cleanses I will be implementing in the near future  to help restore and explore mind, body and spirit.  

I am very exciting to present these programs -- I have been hard at work at them and cannot wait to get started!

My Journey Back to Extraordinary Health

My own health journey started ten years back when, with a great deal of compassion, my gastro-enterologist told me that since the medications he had used up until then were not helping to heal my gut, we were out of options and the next course of treatment would be prednisone.  


I did not know much about health back then, but one thing I did know was that I did not want to go on prednisone.  I knew it caused weight gain and misery.  


So I began to think for the first time I needed to address my situation by changing my diet.  I was still in the thinking stage then.  However, shortly afterwards, something amazing happened.  My father handed me an article, from the Wall Street Journal, about people who were gluten sensitive.  


I already knew that wheat had a bad effect on me and had been trying to avoid it for a while, not always successfully, but I hadn't known the problem was more widespread than just wheat, which, in an instant, made me realize the mistakes I had been making...
