Waiting for the storm

My neighborhood is restless with anticipation. I went for a walk today. There were people doing last minute vegetable shopping (like me) in a small vegetable store which I have never seen so empty of produce. Mostly the customers were chatty and friendly, more so than usual. I think people had reached the point where they were as prepared as they were going to get and now it is time […]

Candida? Take 2.

The big news today is all about digestion. I’m continuing to work on the candida issue and I’m still trying to figure out food sensitivities.

Shortly after I introduced mulberries, all my symptoms got worse. I […]

Three Days

It think I’ve had a migraine for the past three days. That’s why I haven’t been blogging. My headache was triggered by the sunlight which I couldn’t avoid while driving to and from Connecticut to be with a friend and see my naturopath(more on that visit in another post). My eyeballs were the first to start hurting. Then it turned into a very intense pain on the right side of […]
