Thanks for sharing your thoughts ladies.

According to dr. K: "Gag reflexes are like doing push-ups for the vagus while gargling and singing loudly are like doing sprints. "  Smile


Think I'll take the move to the new(er) laptop as a clean slate... Very Happy

LB, this info was great! Like you said, some of the info is not new but it is a good refresher.

I like the steps but I am finding in my journey, that several of the steps need to occur together. I am having success in removing toxins, eating foods that heal my gut, including lots of bone broth and fermented foods and supplementing carefully. It is a slow, slow process but I am see small amounts of progress each week and significant progress in the last year.

Thank you!

Thanks Val. Yes, I agree on the steps needing to be combined to see actual progress. You can't simply eliminate items, they (often) need to be replaced with better options. Glad to hear it was helpful.


More on AIP, for those interested Smile

Yeah... it's a rainy day...  

Still, took the time to run errands, pick up groceries and gifts as well as Christmas cards, and all of that luckily inbetween the showers. Smile Smile Now it's raining more or less continuously... as forecasted..

We're having a family gathering at Mom's tomorrow and I planned to make some pickled red onions to go with the smoked salmon. Shouldn't take too long as the recipe is really simple...


On another note: just got a message from dr. Tom sharing the link to the 1st Q&A session of Interconnected tomorrow: https://www.interconnectedseries.com/liveqa1/ which ofcourse I can't watch due to the time... Rolling Eyes

So nice of dr. Pedram Shojai sharing ALL bonus videos as well as Q&A (replay)s for free after the event was finished, and not just in the sale packages, so that all could watch Smile aside from the more or less standard replay weekend of all 9 episodes; even if his timing was a bit off with it being during the holiday season as is obvious by the comments... Not sure if you ever watched Betrayal on autoimmune diseases by dr. Tom O'Bryan but that one got aired at least twice over time.

Plenty of things that need to be taken care of before the beginning of the new year, some small but important so on the to-do list in order to remember and checking them off when done, others more labour intensive or time consuming... several meetings/gatherings too. Judging from other journals pretty much everyone is busy that way, some also scheduling health related visits that require plenty of research as to find a possible solution, others fighting a cold/flu. *careful hugs*

Despite that, trying out a few new recipes for dinner, just for fun, and so far all tasty, according to both DS and hubby. Nothing really fancy, but healthy without being too obvious about it. Having lunch with Mom and youngest Sis on Friday, which I will prep and take there... last weeks' pickled onions turned out quite good btw... Very Happy

It was cold today... first day the temps stayed below zero for quite a while... we might get snow this weekend... or not. Smile

Did you know it's St. Lucy's Day today? Or Santa Lucia as they call it in Scandinavia?

My MIL has died... a few days short of her 90th birthday.

Not an easy time for DH, especially since his Dad is in memory care.

Thank you PPam, Tomi and HFF.

She was still living at home, with the assistance of home care as well as a cleaning person and gardener. No indication of anything (that I know of), however she did have hearing issues and couldn't walk without a rollator these last few years.

There will be a family gathering at their house today. And ofcourse the funeral coming week.


We did get a dusting of snow during the night.

Death of a parent is always very difficult, my deep sympathies to you and DH. I'm sure his Dad having memory issues makes it worse.

Thank you Rig and Val.

Watching a loved one going through the stages of a disease and withering away, ending up as a shade of their former self is the worst part... for everyone.

I have always wondered why the body decides to just stop when there seems to be no immediate serious health concerns. My mom is 93 - she still has a very sharp mind, and aside from a very small dose of amlodapine for high blood pressure, and very poor eyesight - she is the picture of health. She lives alone, cleans and cooks for herself, just is unable to do her bookkeeping and shopping. My sisters and I pray she will be blessed with the "fall asleep and just not wake up" kind of death, and that she never needs to be moved into a care facility.

I once heard an Asian doctor say, "I believe every heart is given a certain number of beats and when you get to the last one - thats it" I kinda believe that way as well. I think lifestyle can shorten a life, if lived poorly - but I don't really believe a really healthy lifestyle can lengthen a life. My husbands uncle was the picture of health, ran marathons and lived a very clean and healthy life - yet dropped dead of a heart attach in his early 70s. Yet his brother, my FIL, died at the age of 82, after many years of CHF and high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. He was 50 pounds or more over weight and was physically very unfit. You just never know. When I turned 50 I realized every single day to come was a gift, cuz I could reach that last heart beat any day.

I think for those that make into really older ages, a lot of it comes down to them deciding it is time to go. They've lost spouses, siblings, most if not all their friends. Many have kids who have also died, or not able to (or maybe not want to) come visit. Lonely, a lot of history and not much, and pretty bleak future, and they decide it's time. My Dad was an example. Although he had a terminal cancer, he could have lived much longer with care and desire. But when he had to go to a nursing home he decided he was going to die. It took just over a week after he was in the home.
