Should Swollen Ankles Cause Concern About Your Blood Sugar?
Should Swollen Ankles Cause Concern About Your Blood Sugar?

Western medicine really does not address this dangerous condition before it becomes a life threatening issue. Unless your doctor utilizes some alternative methodology, he/she likely has nothing to offer you for swollen ankles except diruetics (water pills). Your doctor doesn’t want to use that option unless your blood pressure is high or you are drowning in your body fluids. (That rumble in your breathing is fluid your doctor WILL drug.)

You want more energy, NOW!

Your swollen ankles are telling you that your energy bank is being depleted.

Are You Ever Done With the Stages of Grief?

Once you get your feet under you, the next wave can surprise you just as much!

Dog Gone! You thought you had this under control. You thought you were healing and moving forward.

Time heals. However, healing tends to sets the stage for the next layer of grief to demand expression.

As much as you want to be done feeling like dung, you need to grieve when you need to grieve.

Do you see your grieving process somewhere in the list of the stages of grief?

Do You Have Bucket List Ideas For Now?
Do You Have Bucket List Ideas For Now?

Recently I was hired to assess an in home care giving situation.

The elderly woman receiving the care had been experiencing dementia symptoms for over a decade.

At times she was very lucid and you could see how intelligent and thoughtful she was.

At other times she couldn’t remember her children’s names.

One particularly enlightening conversation I had with this sweet woman helped me to see how powerless she has fell all her life. In that moment I got a real sense that her powerlessness was a part of her disease process.

ObamaCare: Is Your Elected Representative Refusing Medicaid That Could Save Your Life And Livelihood?

We’ve discussed why there is no transparency in hospital care pricing in a previous post.

Remember why youth makes you pay bigger health care costs? It doesn’t make any sense and it’s not the fault of sick/old people.

Medicaid really can save your life and livelihood!

You will find a link to the article I’m referring to at the bottom of this post.

After you read about how elected officials are denying you this protection from disaster, please do read about the unethical Charge Master.

You need to know.

Will the Affordable Care Act Address Rising Mortality Rates?
Will the Affordable Care Act Address Rising Mortality Rates?

A living wage is one of the MOST important natural treatments for depression!

Taking into consideration that you can avoid heart disease by belonging to a loving community of caring neighbors it’s pretty obvious why we should care that so many women are suffering. Despite their best efforts, they continue to suffer in a way that those who are well housed and fed can’t fathom.

Do we give a damn about the women who are dying younger than their mothers did in 45% of US counties?

Apparently not. Our community spirit is sorely lacking and it shows.

In this modern age of advanced medicine, women’s mortality rates are growing.

Do you realize how alarming that statement is?

Wondering How To Project Your Voice?
Wondering How To Project Your Voice?

Are you having trouble projecting your voice?

You will get the standard diaphragmatic breathing instruction from a speech coach, your doctor might prescribe a gadget to help you strengthen your breathing muscles.

Everyone can agree that it’s important that you don’t strain your voice.

However, if you can’t get enough breath in your lungs, all the “how to project your voice” tips in the world are not going to help you!

Tension definitely is a big issue when it comes to voice volume.

If you can relax and use your belly when you speak, you won’t have difficulty being heard in the back of the room.

However, if you are dealing with fluid in your lungs, you can relax until the cows come home and it won’t get you a bigger breath or more volume!

If you want to know how to project your voice, you’ll have to address the fluid in your lungs first!
