If you have been reading my Health Tips for awhile, I have suggested the site, The Truth About Cancer. Ty Bollinger is doing remarkable work. He is passionate about helping people have access to up to date information about healing from cancer naturally, because he lost his parents early from cancer. So often with a cancer diagnosis, a person is in shock and might not think of the right questions to ask their doctors. With that diagnosis a person is taken down a certain path and led through the process. Most people feel completely overwhelmed! I just read a list of questions in an email from The Truth About Cancer with the 10 questions to ask your doctor before accepting radiation as a treatment. It is always wise to have the best information so you can make the right decision for you. I’ve heard so many times, “I wish I had of known,” in relationship to many health problems. Here you can read the 10 questions to ask your doctor about radiation.
Life has some hard lessons and some of them come through death. Until it is our time, we will be the ones mourning the passing of those close to us. It is easier to give up an older person because they have had a full life. When I was much younger, I knew the death of my Grandmother was in my future and I had a very difficult time considering giving her up. I read Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’s books, which were written some time ago, but are still very meaningful. If you have struggled with a loss or if you know one is in the near future and you haven’t emotionally prepared for their death, please refer to her books. I found them so helpful and healing! Life and death is all about love!
Isn’t it a mystery? We have this big body and it all sits on these little feet and ankles! No one has ever thought my feet are little, but in comparison with my body, they are little. Our feet and ankles get the brunt of our weight and how we move. Let’s be good to our feet and ankles. I suggest a good foot rub every once in awhile! It really makes my feet feel better. I also suggest ordering a pair of socks from www.tommiecopper.com. If you like them, order more. They have compression socks and ankle support. In fact, they have supports for all of the body. I like them. If you need support, see if you like them too.
We are here on this earth to enjoy ourselves and that includes enjoying our body. And, yes, that can mean an injury now and then. This is a reminder: small injuries (that means if it doesn’t take you to the ER) should be treated with ice. I’ve been in 20 car accidents and believe me, ice is my friend. Ice is best 20 minutes at a time. What a relief to my neck if it starts hurting! Put ice on for 20 minutes and then off for at least 20 minutes. I like a cloth pack that I keep in the freezer and pull out upon demand because I can twist it into the shape of my neck. And yes, heat can work too, but you will never go wrong with ice. Sometimes you will go wrong with heat meaning you will get more inflammation and therefore more pain. I like to use ice first. When the pain has been helped with the ice, then you can follow with heat for 20 minutes. Always stop and start with ice! So, enjoy your body!
