Now reading "LIfe is Good" for motivation in starting my own business doing Norwex (creating safe havens by eliminating chemicals from the home)!
For the past three days my psoriasis has been almost non-existent - and I can't figure out why! The biggest change since Jan. 1 has been eating collard greens (with black-eyed peas on New Year's Eve and Day). Added a little bit of non-filtered vinegar (Bragg's). Don't know why, BUT I LOVE IT!
THE POWER by Rhonda Byrne has a wonderful path to Gratitude and a Wonderful Life. It's a Must Read! Reading more - and just found "Life Is Good" - loaded with inspiration!
Started 2017 with no smoking since Sept. 3, 2016! Yeah!
Each day I will try to do something good for myself to get healthy and lose this weight so I can feel better.
"Things are neither Good Nor Bad. Thinking makes them so!" by Shakespeare (smart man!) Here's a great newsletter that just might help anyone who's feeling the $pinch in a big way (found it somewhere else here in Sparkpeople): It's about Frugal Living and many other great things! I'm trying it!

    Finding recipes to increase Vitamin B12 and Folate to raise my seratonin level. Here's one from Spark I want to try for black-eyed peas:
    il.asp?recipe=1634205. These have great nutrition - especially for Folate and potassium.

    Yes, I got onto Psoriasis Healing Warriors, thanks. I haven't had time lately to check all the links - but should be able to do that this week. Since psoriasis is such a complex issue, all avenues should be explored.

    Did you get added to Psoriasis Healing Warriors? It's group is all about natural healing, especially Matt Ludlow's method. There is also a Healing Warrior's Kitchen all about recipes. There is another group I belong to. I think it is just "Psoriasis". You have to ask to join that one, too. It's focus is on medication and more traditional therapies. Best wishes!
