Mostly Fixed Up

Almost as good as new. Who needs a chiropractor when you have a 104lb. dynamo who is willing to stomp on her momma's back? Not me! Yes, finally I could take it no more and asked Megan to walk on my back. A few snap, crackle and pops later...relief.

That coupled with a few days of horse vitamins and I am almost as good as new. Probably as "new" as I will ever be. Shhhhhh...don't tell anyone, but I have helped myself to Lamphley's Vitamix quite a bit over the last year. Lamphley does not endorse this!!!!! After talking to the company over the phone several times to get the correct dosage for my dog, who had Valley Fever and a cat with a broken leg, I asked them if there was anything in there that would hurt a person. They said No, BUT it was not approved for human consumption by the FDA, blah, blah, blah.

It took a little trial and error(too much will make you turn red and your ears will burn like crazy for about 15 minutes) and I came up with the correct dosage and WOW does it ever add the energy. Sometimes it just take a few days to get the old immune system built up again. Caffeine has never done the trick for me as far as the Zoom-Zoom. I can drink it all day and night long and nuthin!!

Now, I'm not endorsing that anyone should do this, especially if you have other health related issues, but it sure does the trick for me...and it cured my case of Valley Fever too. Huh? Three months of Vitamix 2-3 times a day, with no possible damage to my liver or kidneys or a year or so of Sulfa based antibiotics that can cause liver and kidney damage...not exactly rocket science.

Today, a good start on mom's projects....tomorrow, we will be going full bore. I may even have some pictures to share-I messed with the camera a bit and can get it to function sporatically. That will have to do until I get somewhere to replace it. All in all, not to bad for a Monday!

Niacin flush -- won't hurt you a bit. I take time-release Niacin and sometimes I get it on my whole upper body. Just uncomfortable, though.

Glad you are feeling better. My son used to have the magic hands when it came to fixing back problems. He wanted to be a physical therapist for a while there. Now that he's in high school, he's no longer interested in either massaging his parents' backs or a career in physical therapy. He's almost 6-feet tall now, so I wouldn't dare have him walk on my back.
