I have a beautiful daughter that is trying to get me started. I am an ultimate procrastinator. Natural Health has been a study for me for the last many years & I have planned to employ a “newsletter” (I mean a shared & mailed!! info document, it’s really been that long) to share some of the simple truths I believe could encourage others to start, at least, asking questions and looking for answers. Sarah has introduced me to tumblr. I hope I can stop the lolly gagging & let out some of the backlog of info I just keep soaking up like a sponge.
It’s all out there, many different ideas, many different voices & styles. My style is pretty much easy (lazy?) & cheap. I don’t generally do stuff that is really super complicated, expensive & uber-radical (my 18 year old son would disagree). But I have incorporated certain things into my lifestyle that I believe make uncommon sense and that the more you know, the easier it is to make a few changes. I know too much to follow the wide path. I try to do my best much of the time. I am still, far, far from where I want to be. Time & money, at present, my largest obstacles to doing it “better”. Doing a healthy life better is a good thing. Ya gotta be something … might as well be healthy, full of lovely life and sparkling energy, clear headed … just sayin’.
When you follow the natural health (alternative health) road, you will find you know about health issues, the good things the evil-bad things, usually, long before it becomes mainstream “news”. My mother taught us never to use the teflon flake-off frying pans when they came out & white sugar, salt & flour are from satan (nope, I have never been vaccinated). I was preachin’ it on trans-fats way,way before New York City banned the substance & you now see it on all the packaging in the “zero” sense. It’s great to be in the know.
Next time, I will share how I have been non trans-fatting it for years.
