Junk Mail Fatigue. Mail me something personal, something fun – please!

Instead of junk mail I’d like to celebrate “National Card and Letter Writing Month” with some good news, please. I’d like a card from someone who knows and loves me. Or a note from someone who would like to know and love me. Heck, I’d settle for any piece of mail that does not threaten or guilt me into …

* completing a survey.

* making a donation.

* calling or writing to my congresspersons or political party.

* eating or drinking something I don’t want at some place I don’t want to go.

* making a payment Continue reading

Blood Type Diet

Natural way to boost energy and recover from fatigue or any dis-ease.

My journey to understand and recover from fatigue has paused, lingered and returned to  the Blood Type Diet. The first visit was for Michael. He was suffering from terrible migraines and while researching cures for him I found something that works great for us. No good deed goes unrewarded …

M. and I are opposites. I am a Blood Type A which Dr. D’Adamo refers to as “The Cultivator.” Another word is vegetarian. Michael is a Type “O” a.k.a. carnivorous! My first “date” meals for him were unconsciously vegi- oriented. Put me in a kitchen and I’m reaching for a chopping knife and a big vegetable! He ate a couple of these meals with exclamations of “delicious!” By the third repast he was at my elbow with a hunk of meat. One of our first jokes was “and here’s the beef!”

Making a long story short — the more I work with the principles of The Blood Type diet the better we feel. Last year’s health adventure UPPED my focus and integrated another work of Dr. D’Adamo, Cancer Fight It with the Blood Type Diet. This book features a new food category, “super beneficial foods,” a disease-fighting and immunity-boosting super food category.

This week I will post the super beneficial foods for each blood type. The goal is to have you incorporate as many as possible into your daily diet routine. It can be as easy as sprinkling flax on your oatmeal and throwing in some dried cherries then adding soymilk to your morning java. It can take some effort like what I’m going through to find jackfruit! It may also give you a great reason to hang out in French restaurants (Escargot is a super tasty and beneficial food for Type A’s).

Note: I’ll be listing for one blood type a day. If this isn’t you, just check back in a couple of days.

Blood Type A: Super Beneficial Food List (Partial Listing.)

Soy Foods
Richly oiled cold-water fish, Snail
Flax (linseed) oil
Peanut, Walnut
Fava (broad) bean
Domestic mushroom, Onion, Broccoli/broccoli leaves, Garlic
Red grapefruit, Watermelon, Jackfruit, Elderberry, Blueberry, Cherry
Dill Weed, Tarragon, Tumeric
Green Tea

I have a couple more recommendations for you.

1. Print off this list. Post it in your kitchen so that it is at your finger tips and under your nose, literally.

2. Purchase Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s book: Cancer: Fight It with the Blood Type Diet (Eat Right for Your Type Health Library) You don’t have to have cancer to benefit hugely from this book. You don’t have to have adrenal failure before you start loving, nourishing and caring from your adrenal glands with the Fatigue Be Gone Jumpstart e-Guide.

3. If you don’t know your blood type you can be “typed” for free by donating blood at a blood bank. You can also order an inexpensive blood type test kit here.

Finally, do sign up to receive the almost weekly Fatigue Be Gone Newsletter. I keep it bottom-line short with a natural energy-boost tip or two. Click here to read a past issue on the topic of how to beat fatigue and insomnia.

Energy-boosting Product Review: Dr. Andrew Weil’s Self-Healing with sound & music

When I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer last year I scurried about to find new tools for my self-help toolbox. Yes I needed more energy. The stress of the “adventure,” plus the radiation treatment, was exhausting. But I was also looking for somethingS to change my insides – my mental, emotional, spiritual and molecular makeup.

Dr. Andrew Weil & Kimba Arem’s self-help Cd offered to “revitalize your body & mind with proven sound healing tools.” Right on.

Self-Healing with sound & music is a two-disc package. Disc One explains the science behind the sounds. Chapters include: “How sound affects our physical and emotional health,” “The Principle of Entrainment*,” “Vocalizing Vowel Sounds for Self-Healing” and “Interacting with the Chakras through Sound.” Fascinating.

Disc Two is the sound and music – about one hour of bliss. The track names are appropriate: “Water Way,” “Spinal Ebb,” “Peace Journey,” “Angels of the Deep,” etc. This disc is now a part of my nightly Continue reading

Understand Adrenal Fatigue.

Identify Adrenal Fatigue symptoms and make a change or two.

Adrenal fatigue is one of the most common types of fatigue. It is said that 80-percent of American women will experience it in their lifetime — that included me. You’re probably here trying to figure out why you feel so tired. Right?

I’d like to take this opportunity to “take you by the hand” and share some of my best Adrenal Fatigue treatment resources.

First, to better understand adrenal fatigue, its symptoms and causes, I’d like to share an excellent article written by Kathy Browning, Are You Constantly Tired? You May Be Suffering from Adrenal Fatigue.

Next, the result of our poll “When are your most tired?” is a must-read. In brief, we surveyed our visitors to find out what time(s) of day they felt most tired. Why? Because there are many types of fatigue and your specific symptoms, including the hours in which you feel extremely tired, is critical info for your recovery.
