mindbodygreen: Why you can’t medicate your way out of poor diet & lifestyle choices

This is an older article, but still carries an important message from Dr. Terry Wahls. If you think what you eat doesn’t matter, then watch this video on how Dr. Wahls is using food to heal from multiple sclerosis. Every time I hear her story, it makes me want to eat some more broccoli! 🙂

Quick health update…

You’ve probably noticed I still haven’t resumed a regular posting schedule yet. I’ve just been publishing the news posts the past few weeks because they don’t require a lot of time or effort. Well, there’s a reason for that: My back pain has returned, and my doctor thinks I’ve probably reherniated the disc that he operated on last month. I’ll have a new MRI next week to confirm his suspicion one way or another if we can get insurance approval. I’m having quite a bit of back/butt/hip pain again, and that’s affected my ability to work. You guys know I’m not a huge fan of pharmaceutical drugs, but gabapentin is my best friend right now. It’s about the only thing that helps to reduce the nerve pain.

    My massage therapist had a herniated disc and see used diatomaceous earth to treat hers. As strange as it was it really did work well for her.

  2. I hope you feel better soon, Donna! I just started reading your blog in the past year & REALLY appreciate all of your posts, your time & hard work!!! I’ve had Fibro & ME/CFS for almost 30 years (wow, I’ve never said that before!) & yet I’m always learning new things or gaining support through learning what others go through & that I’m not alone. Thank you, God Bless!

    Feel better. If Gabepentin helps you, you are one of the lucky people. I look forward to hearing more from you when you feel up to it.

    I am so sorry for what you are going through. I pray wisdom for your doctor so that you will get treatment that you need along with a good dose of healing.
    While so many of us love your blogs and all we learn from them we totally understand your need to take some time away from posting to take care of you. If you don’t take care of you then we don’t have you here to help us (yes that is selfish)
    Wishing you health and happiness—
