Can’t Seem to Get On Your Feet?

Can't get on your feet

It may not be easy, and it takes time, but repairing, regenerating, and rebuilding your body can certainly be done.  Reversing many conditions will depend on how long you have been nutrient-deficient, how willing you are to make the needed lifestyle changes, your willingness to attend to daily exercise and sleep needs,  if nutritional supplementation is needed, your willingness to provide it, and, yes, your general attitude.  Your total health requires nutrition, exercise, sunshine, rest/sleep, clean air, toxin removal, attitude, and the ability to resolve problems and enable changes in your lifestyle.  If it seems like a slow go, think about Continue reading

Backyard Garden

Oh, the joys of a backyard garden!  Even though the temperature has been above 100 degrees Farenheit for two weeks in a row, the garden has been resilient.  As soon as we have a couple of overnight temperatures no higher than 75 degrees, we will have tomatoes galore.  Already, we’ve harvested some tomatoes, lots of yellow crookneck squash, zucchini, broccoli, green leafy lettuce, cucumbers and Ronde’ de Nice (eight-ball squash).  In the picture below, you can see the (plastic) guardian owls and hawks that keep watch over the garden. The pole beans and carrots are up but haven’t been harvested yet. The cucumbers are too numerous to keep up with. I’ve been freezing green peppers and tomatoes.  Will try freezing cucumbers in a brine today.     The cantaloupes are almost ready.  The carrots need more time. We pulled up most of the watermelon vines — they were taking over and intruding on all the plants around them.  We live and learn.  We’ll allow more space next summer.  One of our favorite home garden recipes is summer salsa, shown in one of the pictures below.  This time we served it over tortilla chips.  It has tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, parsley, red onion, garlic, jalapeno, lime juice, garlic, cumin, salt & pepper.  Terrific!  Healthy lifestyle can be fun and tasty!  We’ve been eating mostly from the garden and feeling great!

Health is a Journey

It requires a daily commitment.  It can be confusing, but there are signposts along the way.  Determine where you are now with baseline measures.  Avoid pitfalls by learning about health.  Stop the toxic input and yield to the health needs of your body for nutrition and physical activity.  Measure results, resolve problems and enable lifestyle changes to achieve your optimal health.
