Nutrition Facts

Some people can’t take a supplement and some people prefer not to take supplements.  And, I always say it is better to get our nutrition in our food if at all possible.  That is the way it was meant to be, right?  

I might say to a patient, “you need magnesium.”  A patient sometimes responds with, I just can’t take any magnesium or it will give me diarrhea (listen up folks with constipation!).  “So, dear patient, you need to eat foods with magnesium in them.”

What food has magnesium in it?  Go to a website Dr. Greger made called It is completely free and all profits from any of his books or website go to educating people about nutrition.

You see, he found his purpose.  He is a medical doctor and wants to help others learn about nutrition just like a doctor did for his grandmother and saved her life.  She lived many more years.  So many people have told me how much their grandmother influenced them, just like me. He has many you tube videos as well.  I like the way his nutrition facts website has a search engine where you can ask all kinds of questions.  If you have any questions, use it now.

Jingle Bells!

Jingle Bells! I have such fond memories of Christmas time when I was a child.  I loved Santa!  

The children are easy to buy for as they have a long list of wants.  Men and women below 50 often have things they need or want.  But when you get to people as old as I am (51, right?), it gets harder to find that perfect something for Granny or Grandpa, doesn’t it?

You might look toward a gift of health.  Do they have any pain?  If so, there are braces or supports that might be helpful.  Perhaps a favorite bottle of herbal lotion for pain?  Or perhaps a gift certificate for massage.  Or maybe a set of one-pound weights to wear around their wrists or ankles to help them build muscle.   There are many things that older people need to help their body, so let that be your number one choice.  They will appreciate it!
