Hello from my other planet. But seriously,
wouldn't it be grand to have another planet,
like a "vacation planet" to escape the stupidity
that often goes on here?
I have to be careful of what I eat. "Why?" you may ask. Because I used
to be a rattle-brained youth and eat with wild abandon. My selection of
food was poor and now I'm paying for it in playing the game, "save the
teeth." It's kinda like the game shows on TV, just spin a wheel and
hope for the best.
I'm at my juicer much of the time. Actually, you oldies, it's the only way
to go. Juice it and drink it and all those pretty little enzymes start their
jobs. Take parsley for example, because it is extremely powerful, juice
it with mostly carrot.
Here's a story. I was merrily going along for nearly a week on my
carrot/parsley juice recipe. Last Friday I noticed a back-ache, mostly
hanging around on my lower right back. "Ummm, too much heavy
lifting in the yard-work," I thought. I put the hens in and fed the dog
early (thanks to my intuition) because that pain was rising like Andrew,
to full hurricane level. I started to make preparation for a castor oil
pack but could do nothing but stumble into bed and muffle my screams
in a pillow. I never even knew I had a kidney problem but my instincts
told me, this is a kidney stone. Dang, but they do hurt. I did manage
to sleep a little.
Next morning, pain had vanished like buggy whips......completely gone,
and a new vigor flashed through this "once gorgeous" body. (that's a joke,
now laugh). I felt/still feel like I was what? perhaps 25. If I had been
an allopathic aficionado, I probably would have been in the hospital
all drugged up, but I'm not and I won't and I read a lot.
By the way, I don't just drink juice but it is in additon to my meals, just
in case you go crazy and start frantically juicing.
I wasn't even going to talk about my kidney stone, but what the heck,
it evolved and maybe help someone in the same predicament. I'll save
my other "big story" for later. Can you hardly wait?
