Not so long ago, I posted that I’m done chasing the recovery of my lost ability. I’ve been seeking a way to reverse the physical decline of my body, which began 37 years ago with a bone tumor, for so long it seems to be the only thing I’ve ever done sometimes. You could call it my career. The only thing I’ve pursued longer would be spiritual growth. I’m frustrated, and tired.
However, I recently saw a video made by a former cardiac surgeon – Dr. Steven Gundry, MD. He worked at Loma Linda University Medical Center until he had an epiphany – that he was just putting bandaides on conditions. He realized he could do more good for his patients by helping them to NOT NEED surgery. Foremost on his mind was the fact that, despite doing “everything right” he himself was 75 pounds overweight and heading for cardiac trouble.
Well, he tells the story far better than I could. You can find it at http://www.thenewgutfix.com
Anyhow, after seeing that video, I shared it with my wife – and she agreed that his description of the “typical patient” with the problem he now treats – with NUTRITION alone – was a total description of how I’ve been feeling the last few years. Everything – chronic fatigue, joint pain, migraines, brain fog, memory lapses – it is all just symptoms of a leaky gut. And he’s figured out how to repair it without surgery. So, making an exception to my former declaration, we’re going to give this a shot.
Yes, “we” – my wife has several of the same symptoms, so she’s going to do the regimen with me. With a little help from the gods, perhaps we will both soon be in the best health of our lives.
Believe it or not – this is a CAKE that was made by a local baker/artist (yes, besides running her baking shop, she also was an instructor in the art department at the university).
My wife and I recently watched “Darkest Hour” – a movie about Winston Churchill starring Gary Oldman in the lead.
While I’m always impressed with Oldman’s ability to immerse himself in a role to the point of non-recognizable, what most impressed me in this movie was a quote at the very end. I’d like to share it with you all now.
“Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.”- Winston Churchill
My wife emailed this joke to me, and it was so cute that I had to share it . . . .V
Gotta love those grand-kids ..
I was eating breakfast with my 10-year-old Granddaughter and I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?”
Without skipping a beat she said, “It’s President’s Day!” ..
She’s smart, so I asked her “What does President’s Day mean?”
I was waiting for something about Obama, Bush or Clinton, etc.
She replied, “President’s Day is when the President steps out of the White House, And if he sees his shadow, we have another year of full of cow poop.”
You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.
I thought we could all use a good, tension-breaking, laugh. – V
Kudos to my wife for finding this – on my 1st wife’s Facebook page!
According to my wife, my dad posted this on his Facebook page recently. Enjoy!
The above image is a sign frequently seen in US restaurants, which reads, “No shirt, No shoes, No service.” In many places, this is a matter of law, ostensibly for hygiene reasons.
What occurred to me is – it seems it would be perfectly legal and acceptable for men or women to walk into establishments displaying this sign, and as long as they wore a shirt and shoes, they need wear nothing else! LOL!
Kudos to my wife for sending this to me.
