I’ve written about this before but it’s good to refresh our memories and our eating habits regarding inflammation….how it’s caused and why it’s not good for our health. Inflammation is a participant in every disease known to man. It’s a part of cancer, heart disease, obesity, arthritis, strokes and more. We all have some amount […]
I carry a little bottle of peppermint oil in a “roll on” bottle in my purse as it is so versatile and comes in handy for many day to day issues I may encounter. Peppermint oil comes from the peppermint plant which is an offshoot of spearmint and watermelon. This herb is fresh and minty […]
Most of my life I’ve battled with the size of my body, the pant size I’m wearing or the numbers on the bathroom scale. I’m not alone with this. I think every woman on this planet has something about her body she’s not happy with. Thankfully when I took on a very healthy diet and […]
When we choose our foods for the day do we ever consider our brain health as part of the big picture. Probably not. We think about our cravings and our immediate gratification.. right? Some of us may think about our waistline and our overall health but rarely do we choose a food because it is […]

I’m always looking for a good life lesson….a story about someone who has overcome adversity, or a lesson shared between a parent and a child to teach the child how to live strong and compassionate and well. There are so many life lessons out there to grab onto. If you are looking for them you […]
Wow….it’s so hard to believe that my sweetie and I chose to stop drinking alcohol June 25th, 2009….and it’s been 10 years since then. We are so glad we made this choice. First of all because it is so much better for my Multiple Sclerosis but more so it was a good decision for both […]
Oh my goodness….sugar is so tasty and everything containing sugar is so tasty….no doubt about it. I was in a situation the other day where we were invited to an “ice-cream” function where you could have any and all flavors of ice-cream, toppings etc….. and as much as you wanted. I NEVER eat “conventional” treats […]
It’s been a few years now since my honey and I decided to pick up and move across the country from Ontario, Canada to British Columbia, Canada. We have just moved into our new home on Vancouver Island. We started looking out west about 10 years ago, shortly after my honey retired. We purchased a […]
I have been consuming organic liquid turmeric daily for 20 years now. I swear that the reason I don’t have any Multiple Sclerosis related aches and pains is my daily dose of turmeric. Many of my fellow MS acquaintances, frequently reflect on their unfortunate MS related aches and pains. Why don’t I have pain? I […]
