In 2004 while working as an hospice RN, I was seriously injured. By 2007, I was mostly in a wheelchair and rudely told by the neurosurgeon to: "Just use the wheelchair, shut up, take the morphine and learn to deal with it". I was on over 20 prescriptions including multiple psychotropic medications. When I left the neurosurgeon's office that day I knew something had to change. Prayer led me to chiropractic which changed my life. Within a few months, I lost 50 lbs, put my cane and wheelchair in a closet and parked my scooter in the house. I have gotten off almost all medication. After 30 years in the Health Care Industry, I have gladly walked away from allopathic medicine. The rapid, positive results made it easy to undo 30 years of brainwashing. I continue to struggle with lung disease and CFIDS but I am able to remain functional through alternative health and nutrition. My goal in life now is to share my story with others and teach the truth about pharmaceuticals, nutrition and health care.

Get Beautiful Skin from the Inside Out

The liver is the detoxifying agent of the body.  It pulls toxins out of circulation so they can be eliminated through urine and bowel movements. When the liver is overworked, toxins build up and cannot be eliminated except by finding other avenues.  One of these avenues is the skin. Anything that disturbs body chemistry such as abnormal blood sugar…

Conquer Your Food Cravings

Food cravings are the body’s way of trying to correct various vitamin and mineral deficiencies or imbalances, but eating the food that is craved rarely provides the needed nutrient.  For example, when a person feels suddenly exhausted or weak, the body senses low blood sugar and begins to crave carbohydrates.  However, sugar quick fixes are extremely damaging in the long run,…

Fight Obesity with Omega-3 Fats

A recent study, conducted by the University of Newcastle in Australia, indicates that higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce obesity.  Researchers found that Omega-3 levels of those people at a healthy weight were 15% higher than in those considered obese. Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFAs.  Large amounts of Omega-6 PUFAs are known to…

Most Cleaning Products Are Chemical Cocktails

Most cleaning products are chemical cocktails, poisoning people, families and environments.  They are a lot more harmful than a little dust and dirt. Many cleaning products can irritate lungs and eyes, and are implicated in cancer.   They leave behind toxic residues, and pollute the water supply when rinsed down the drain. Anyone wanting to use cleaning products should learn to read labels, even those…
