Prepping for COVID ….. Ready for Life

The last time I was this concerned about a health issue was October 2018 when I’d missed two menstrual periods and felt very much pregnant. Though excited, I was realistic at 44 years old and having put the boys’ baby clothes away and most importantly endured a serious prenatal condition in all three of my previous pregnancies which had me flat out with dizziness, nauseated, and vomiting around the clock. I couldn’t endure another pregnancy and felt nervous to be possibly so.

The Gift of Placenta Encapsulation

The day Thomas, my youngest, turned 5 I encapsulated his placenta. It was ‘old’ with little to no hormones, yet I had nothing to lose. My colleague had recently encapsulated her 2-year old daughter’s placenta

Turning a Transverse (or Breech) Baby

transverse

Many pregnant moms become distressed when they find out baby is transverse or breech; often with just weeks left before their estimated due date (EDD). This puts a spin on things because if baby doesn’t turn ‘in time’ a care provider will often recommend that the woman have a cesarean birth.

Chicken Stock Story & Recipe

Chicken stock, like any meat stock, is rich in minerals, gelatin, and collagen. This elixir keeps bones and teeth strong, joints supple, and hair soft. I have experience with the last one as my hair used to be dry with grey coming …. I started drinking stock and within weeks, my hair softened with much less grey; likely the collagen had a play in that.

As a kid, I remember that there always seemed to be a pot of meat soup on the stove. As I grew up and became vegan in my early 20’s, cooking chicken just wasn’t

Transcendental Meditation – Embarking My Mantra

To say that I was willing to try anything to resolve my chronic health issues is not an understatement. I had tried many things, and as the years went by, I had this feeling that less and less was helping. The year I turned 40 years old, definitely did not help.

By the age of 43, I was as open-minded as they come and so when Transcendental Meditation (TM) was put in my reach. I reached for this programmed method of meditation with both hands. Yes, I had doubts but I was at my wit’s end to resolve what I was ready to kiss goodbye to…namely panic attacks and asthma … both of which hit hard when they arrived and put me under every time.

Catnaps with Transcendental Meditation

Everyone will experience TM differently, depending on their physiology and past ‘history’. Not everyone has a high level of sleep deprivation prior to starting TM, thus not everyone will go through a period of fatigue-release (a.k.a. sleeping lots). If you do, you will be supported by your TM teacher as you adjust the meditation technique and move forward.

Since learning Transcendental Meditation (TM) in January 2018, I’ve had many changes. One of which is my energy level. When I first took the training I was energized out of my eyeballs; unlike other people’s testimonials about TM helping them to sleep, I felt the opposite. I was abuzz with life with an incredible sense of urgency to get my life in order all at once, no time to waste.
