This morning I'm rockin!

Monday, June 21, 2010

This morning I'm rockin! Had a BEEEAUTIFUL night's sleep last night and woke up this morning full of vim and vigor and rearin to go! My laundry is out on the line, my dishes are washed dried put away, floors swept and scrubbed, washroom sparkling clean, I've got my dinner already prepped for tonight!

I'm going to head out the door here in a few minutes and clean up my clippings from pruning the trees yesterday and haul the debris to the back for pick up, water my potoatoes and tomatoes. Grass should be good for a couple of days cut it yesterday too.

You should see what Walt's working on WOO HOO He was in Lethbridge last Thursday and saw a lawn set. He has the first recliner chair made ready for staining, and the other chair and table all cut and ready to assemble! He took his tip money and bought the pine boards for this surprise! So I get new backyard patio furniture this summer!

Anyway off to get those few things accomplished and then back to writing! I pulled off almost 2000 words over the week end again! I'm writing Walter's story first then mine and blend them together.
I have the fans going already, the blinds and windows closed to trap the cool night air in for as long as I can today.

OK reporting in done LOL check in throughout the day maybe this evening!

STAY GOLD, KEEP ON KEEPING ON emoticon

    When I get so frustrated that I don't know where to turn I walk it out. Brisk walking or a good workout seems to work off the agressions I'm bottling up.

    I have been going thru that as well, its like I am mad but not really at anything, I have been doing some I guess you could say souls searching and have discovered alot and I think that helped more than anything, I found out what I am mad at today had nothing to do with the day but stem from a ways back and most of what I was upset about was not even me, I hope you work it out, nothing so unnerving as being mad with out a known reason, makes you feel like you are losing it emoticon

Keep Your Colon Healthy with This Main Course

Keep Your Colon Healthy with This Main Course
By RealAge


To dodge colon cancer, make sure your dinner plate has plenty of room for fish.

Research suggests that the polyunsaturated fats in our fine finned friends may provide a mighty nice buffer against colon cancer.

The Fats That Protect Best
In a study, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids -- including eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid -- cut colon cancer risk in a big way in Caucasians. And these fats are found in abundance in fish. Interestingly, the short-chain omega-3s that are found in nuts and cereals and are oh-so-good for your heart did not have the same protective benefit. (But here's what omega-3s from nuts can do for you.)

Triple Threat to Cancer
Why are omega-3 fatty acids in fish such strong adversaries against colon cancer? Both lab and animal studies suggest omega-3s may curb the birth of new cancer cells, hinder tumor growth, and inhibit the spread of tumor cells to other parts of the body. Try these other gut protectors, too:

Did You Know?
Too much saturated fat from red meat may increase colon cancer risk.

    I very rarely eat red meat any more. It became too heavy on my stomach and too hard to digest.
Fish and poultry are my favorites, and so versatile.

    Thanks for all the info. I love fish, in fact that is the only meat I am allowing myself to have, so I am happy about this little tidbit. Have a great day.

    I saw Kathy on Dr. Oz yesterday. I think this would be great to try. She looks fantastic and I think a cleanse like this would make you feel fantastic. Are you going to give it a try?

Parasites!

Thursday, June 17, 2010


By Susan Evans, MD

One of my close colleagues experienced chronic repeated bouts of bloating and abdominal pain. Even though my colleague was extremely health conscious, nonspecific abdominal pain can be very difficult to diagnose and treat. Fortunately,after visiting a gastrointestinal specialist it was determined that his abdominal discomfort was due to a parasitic infection. There are many types of parasites that can enter our bodies and negatively effect our immune system and overall health. Walking around barefoot, eating unclean fruits and vegetables, and even drinking untreated water are usually the most common portals of entry for parasites. A parasitic infestation may include symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, aches, pains, anemia, skin rashes, nervousness, sleep disturbances, allergies, and fatigue.



Parasites may effect your mood, your well being, and can interfere (and sometimes block) your natural intestinal vitamin absorption. Parasites feed from inside your body. These creatures include tape worms, round worms, hook works, pin worms, that can grow to various sizes and lengths. Tape worms can attach themselves to the intestinal walls and stay nourished off food that you eat.



There are a number of ways to avoid getting parasites: cook your food, wash fruits and vegetables and hands before eating (wash your hands after using the bathroom as well.) Wear socks or shoes instead of going barefoot. Keep your fingernails short and clean. If you are traveling, share your travel plans with your physician who will help you take preventative measures so you don't come back with a parasite.



You can see your doctor and ask for a complete parasitic panel, including stool study if you have symptoms of chronic inflammation or poor digestion. There are antibiotics that treat parasites, however most will grow back with eggs, if you do not follow the proper procedures. There are also natural remedies that give relief to parasites and kill them, and their eggs, off. There also is holistic treatment for parasitic conditions that will normally knock out the parasitic infection with strong herbs. See your local herbalist for evaluation if antibiotics are not right for you. Ginger is a good staple to keep in your diet, it has long been used in Africa and India to treat parasites. Look also for antiparasitic herbs as wormwood bark, to treat common parasites infestations.



It is also important to have regular bowel movements. As parasites can be in your digestive track, that need to make their way through. Eat plenty of fiber, or cleanse 2times a year, to keep your digestive health moving.

    This was so informational. I watched an episode of Dr. Oz, dedicated to parasites, living inside your body. It was very interesting, but scary at the same time as to how easy it is to come into contact with them. You can get them from eating food that has not been handeled correctly at a restaurant ! Makes ya think twice about eating out, doesn't it? emoticon
