I’m Not Dead Yet!

The last 9 months have been a real challenge for my family dealing with my fathers poor health.  He’s been in Hospice for 3 weeks now and after a family vigil last weekend we thought that was it.  Somehow my dad who has horrible diabetes is still hanging in there.  This morning I told him when he had a moment of lucency all the well wishers that I’ve heard from and he appreciates it greatly.  He also said I’m not dead.  He was able to smile a bit as I chuckled.  He has surprised all of us who have been there non-stop.  It’s incredible how strong the will to live is.  I think he’s burning that extra weight he carried all those years since he isn’t able to take any food in.  I keep telling him it’s OK to go, I’ll miss him terribly, and that he’s lived an incredible life.  A big thanks to everyone who has sent prayers and well wishes.  I will keep you posted on this blog and facebook as to any changes.

One thing you do not want to experience in your lifetime is a chronic illness.  I can’t tell you how exhausting this has been not just the last month but the last 30 years dealing with a loved ones poor health.  It takes a toll on you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  I never want to have some form of chronic disease since I see so much of it in my practice but also see it in loved ones and once you get to that point you better have a good support team.

I’ve spent the last 5 years learning from the best functional medicine practictioners in the country learning how to help people with metabolic and neurological issues.  Most of you may not know that I do specialized care that addresses underlying poor physiology to your neuro-metabolic systems.  This form of care works great and the people that follow my lead get really great results.  Some slower than others but their is always progression.

If you really want to get better then you have to take total charge of your health choices and sometimes that means getting out of the traditional way of thinking about your health.  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if you haven’t got anywhere with your current care.

I’ve been having some really good results with a new laser protocol that I’ve been using.  You may know that I’ve had 4 knee surgeries and have had no cartilage for the last 35 years in my right knee.  Well, I just ran a 5.5 mile race this weekend on snowy trails and my knees hold up pretty good inspite the fact my orthopedic surgeon said I would need a knee replacement by the time I was 50.  If you have a bad knee give me a jingle and lets see if this is something that will work for you.

Ok,  take good care of yourself daily.  Every time you make a great choice about what you eat, how you move, and how you think, it will help in the long run.  Keep removing the toxic load us americans are famous for and watch your health get better.  I believe in you, keep up your healing journey, and if you need some assistance or have a question just send me an email or jingle.
