Re: Update and Blood Results

Re: Update and Blood Results

Thank you Jafa -- sleeping better IS a huge blessing. Frankincense essential oil is used to help balance hormones and emotions. I find it helps slow down and deepen my breathing and soften the nervous tension and emotional swings I've been experiencing lately. Sometimes instead of the single drop to...

I took some of the suggestions given on our site and have implemented the following: - eating two meals a day -- little to no snacking - fasting 13-14 ho...

Re: New to the site

Aloha NF52! Thank you for your post, and thank you for sharing your family history. So similar to mine. I'm from a family of five and the only one who hasn't had a heart attack. I'm a middle child. Sadly, my younger sister had a massive heart attack in July 2016. Yes, mother, father, brother and sis...

Aloha & thank you Juliegee, Sara and Stavia for your warm words of wisdom and generous encouragement. Tomorrow I begin again reading the Primer with hopes of building my knowledge base on all things 4/4. This crossroad is important; I am important. Turning the ship around will indeed require lot...

Re: New to the site

Thank you {{Juliegee}} for the warm welcome. I needed that hug. You're right I've been trying to learn by firehose for the past 24 hours. Just read the cliff note and noticed that I was able to stay in my body and focus. Whew! Turtle steps. I'm very grateful to have found this site and such helpful ...

New to the site

I recently found out I have two copies of the APOE-E4 allele (23andme)....my mother passes away from AD at 75 (2012) and my father passed from a heart attack at 65. To say that I'm concerned/anxious/stressed/freaked out is an understatement. I'm a 57 woman who is 15-20 lbs overweight, with very high...
