A mug of bone broth, ready for sipping.

Why I Make Bone Broth

As you may know, I am searching for a cure for my arthritis. Some believe I’m looking for a miracle. And that’s okay. If it takes a miracle, I’ll accept that. I do tend to side with science first, but miracles are welcome. I have friends who have taken the […]

Looking at arthritis from a different viewpoint

A Different Viewpoint for Arthritis

So far, I’ve looked at my arthritis primarily from a physical viewpoint: talking about what happens in the body and ways to help either heal the body or alleviate the arthritis symptoms. Reading a recent post by Dr. Christiane Northrup on 12 Ways to Release Fear and Anger To Heal […]

Can water really help arthritis?

Water for Osteoarthritis

I know what you’re probably thinking. You’re thinking that here’s someone else telling you to drink water. Even though some ‘experts’ have said you didn’t need to. And you’re right, that is what I’m saying. And maybe you shouldn’t listen to every ‘expert’ out there. After all, each study is […]

Conni 1953 - 2001

If I’m Ever in a Coma

Macabre topic? Maybe, but also a serious one. I’ve thought about this for 13 years now. In fact, 13 years ago this week. Conni’s last week on the planet. My sister was finally diagnosed with lung cancer in January of 2001. She had been sick for some time but the […]

How Trans Fat Hides

Trans fat. You probably know it’s bad for you. But you may not realize that it is still common in our food supply. New York City may have banned it, and fast food restaurants may have eliminated it, but have you checked those cookies and other goodies in your pantry? […]
