An open letter to practitioners of Oncology

Dear Oncology Practitioner: Let’s lay down the weapons, and take up a flashlight instead. Let’s shine the light on whether cutting, burning, and poisoning really work. Let’s care about the human body’s sanctity, and the need we have for our immune system for the rest of our lives, more than we care about debate, defensiveness,…

All I think about is CANCER…am I a “conspiracy theorist?”

The ridiculous diatribe I read by an M.D., against all things non-medical, acts as if those who don’t subscribe to “modern medicine” are all quacks because they are conspiracy theorists. (Caught in his net include those utilizing means other than chemo to treat cancer, those wanting to avoid amalgam fillings, those wanting to avoid mercury…

Kala in Boise PUMPS HER FIST (thank you, whole foods diet!)

Do you know what it’s like to be trapped in a quagmire of health problems that seem insurmountable, requiring lots of pharmaceuticals? I talk to tons of people who describe the life they’ve lost–in my internet world and travels. Kala in Boise (one of the three readers who put that event together) has been doing…

my comments about preventive antibiotics, part 3 of 3

I guess I don’t value the “written protocols and standards of care” much–easy for me to say as I’m not a practitioner–but I have watched with dismay as we’ve become more and more prevention-drug oriented, and I’m doubtful about whether there’s any benefit to the public health. Sure, we take an AB before a procedure…

“Best Day Ever” stuff

I have a group of friends I play a game with called “Best Day Ever.” When something good (or bad–that you decide is Perfect in its learning opportunities!) happens—we find that moment in every day that makes it the Best Day Ever—we text each other. It makes your day so great, looking for that funny…

Happy Mother’s Day! on prenatal vitamins……

Mothers do the greatest work in the world! On this day, I’d like to say how thankful I am that Kincade, Emma, Mary Elizabeth, and Tennyson made me a mom, starting nearly 18 years ago. I love you guys so much. And thank you to anyone who reads this blog who does that work every…

The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and…

Seattle….things that come in 3’s….part 2 of 3

I’m not superstitious, but strange things happen to me in threes. You may have heard me speak about that. (I changed this to a three-part series, in honor of that.) So I almost brought an ex-boyfriend to Seattle with me as an assistant. That kinda blew up. Then another one I affectionately refer to as…

If you saw what I see…..part 1 of 2

I wish you could be me for a few days, and talk to the people I talk to. It’s rather motivating in ways both negative and positive. In the last week and a half, I’ve done 6 intro classes locally, several of them with over 100 in attendance. (Photos below of the last one in…
