How To Understand Mitochondrial Health

When did you last check your mitochondrial health? Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife, Heather, struggled with severe and chronic health issues her entire life: sinus scraping, multiple ablations on her heart, going into a coma and struggling with Lyme disease, parasites and heavy metals… They spent a number of their years with different doctors and specialists, looking for the right person to tell them why she was so fatigued, having heart palpitations, couldn’t sleep and never had any...

When did you last check your mitochondrial health?

Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife, Heather, struggled with severe and chronic health issues her entire life: sinus scraping, multiple ablations on her heart, going into a coma and struggling with Lyme disease, parasites and heavy metals…

They spent a number of their years with different doctors and specialists, looking for the right person to tell them why she was so fatigued, having heart palpitations, couldn’t sleep and never had any energy. Each doctor told them something a little different

Then they’d try a new protocol. Sometimes, a little bit of progress… …maybe just enough to function for a few hours a day or go run some errands, but she was always careful to conserve her energy for fear of another crash. —

>>Dr. Jay has come to believe that your mitochondria are a MAJOR part of health and energy, join me at his Mitochondrial Summit (free & online)!

When Heather had a miscarriage, they discovered that her mitochondrial function was very low. This is when Dr. Jay started learning more about the importance of the mitochondria for vibrant health and wellness.

Mitochondrial health is one of the big missing links as to why people get sick… and stay sick. Your mitochondria convert nutrients from cells into energy, giving them the ability to carry out various functions, like growth, metabolism and cellular reproduction.

Mitochondrial Summit

When is the last time you paid attention to your mitochondrial health? In high school science class, your probably learned that the mitochondria are the “powerhouse of the cell,” but it’s much more complex than that. Truth is, the majority of us are walking around with less than ideal mitochondrial health, leading to fatigue and chronic illness.

When you support your mitochondria, you could influence such conditions as: + Alzheimer’s disease + Anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder + Cancer + Cardiovascular disease/atherosclerosis + CFIDS + Diabetes + Exercise intolerance and fatigue + Fibromyalgia and myofascial pain + Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease + Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease + Sarcopenia (loss of muscle) + Senescence (aging) —

>>Pay attention to your mitochondria when you attend this free, online event! Dr. Jay Davidson is here to help you by sharing his wisdom.

P.S. When you register for The Mitochondrial Summit, you’ll also gain access to Dr. Jay’s powerful eGuide, Mitochondria 101!

How To Improve Gut Health With Seasonal Probiotics

I’m sure you’ve heard about the Gut-Brain connection. Scientific research now backs this and with all of my health problems, I’m more than ready to take note of it. Finding a Probiotic that uses science is important to me. Jetson Probiotics uses the best research to produce Seasonal Probiotics to make sure that you have the bacteria needed for each time of year. Jetson was founded by a guy named Stephan Weitz, who was diagnosed with MS. After trying all the medications, he...

I’m sure you’ve heard about the Gut-Brain connection. Scientific research now backs this and with all of my health problems, I’m more than ready to take note of it. Finding a Probiotic that uses science is important to me. Jetson Probiotics uses the best research to produce Seasonal Probiotics to make sure that you have the bacteria needed for each time of year.

Jetson was founded by a guy named Stephan Weitz, who was diagnosed with MS. After trying all the medications, he decided to look for more. He worked with multiple practitioners to improve his health and was able to stop taking all the prescriptions.

Jetson logo

Since getting off of my prescriptions is now my goal, I’m really paying attention to this new company. Jetson is constantly researching, reading, and learning everything to bring you the very best probiotics.

Because I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, I have read many of the studies concerning what type of probiotics work best with my disorder. EDS is not my only disease or disorder, so I know that my overall health picture is very complex. Many of the disease symptoms overlap and some need contradictory types of treatments.

I was provided with a jar of probiotics to try. I was very happy to read the label, as it contains many different types of bacteria and strains. Most cheap probiotics seem to only have Lactobacillus acidophilus. Jetson provides the exact name and symbols. You’ll know exactly what is going into your body.

Immunity

The vegetarian capsules and natural ingredients are also:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
  • Non GMO
  • Preservative Free
  • Allergan Free
  • They remain relatively unscathed for up to 2 hours in the harsh stomach acid environment (where other probiotics often die). They then dissolve quickly in the intestinal environment where the bugs get to work.

I had a great chance to test them out for the last few weeks. My major test was to take the probiotic on Thanksgiving. I can honestly say that I had no bloating at all after the big meal! That was a happy result.

Jetson offers the Seasonal Probiotics in a subscription style. The probiotics are formulated according to the four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. You can purchase them monthly, a 6 month prepaid subscription, or a 12 month prepaid subscription. You’ll save with the longer subscriptions.

Jetson Seasonal Probiotics

I think you’ll be pleased with the seasonal approach to probiotics.  They’re designed to meet the body’s specific needs each season of the year. I’m looking forward to improving my gut health with a seasonal probiotic subscription.

The Holiday Roller Coaster

Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas tree is up. Black Friday has come and gone, too. This time of year is so hectic, with one holiday and event after another. It becomes a physical and emotional roller coaster for many of us with chronic illness. We celebrated Thanksgiving in a very low-key fashion. It was just the three of us this year, and I was not up to cooking all the big meal. We all agreed to do an easier version of the menu and it was wonderful. We cooked only the dishes that I knew...

We celebrated Thanksgiving in a very low-key fashion. It was just the three of us this year, and I was not up to cooking all the big meal. We all agreed to do an easier version of the menu and it was wonderful. We cooked only the dishes that I knew we would finish and purchased crescent rolls and a bakery pie.

I’ve never served such a meal on the holidays, but it was just fine. No one complained and the meal was delicious. I didn’t have to ice my back over an over from pain. Standing to cook is very painful for my back, so I was relieved to not deal with that. In fact, I didn’t even need to take Advil.

Black Friday was spent in my pj’s, shopping for most of the family. Almost everyone sent me a wish list to choose from. There were amazing deals online and I loved shopping the doorbusters! I hope you found some great buys, too.

Today is my husband’s birthday and we’ll have a low-key celebration here. We got a small bakery cake and I found some sugar-free cupcakes for me. We’ll enjoy just being together. Sometimes hubby doesn’t like to celebrate birthdays, but we’re just thankful to live another year.

My really good news is that I’ve lost 14 pounds. This sugar-free eating is really paying off. I don’t miss the sugar one bit! The black circles under my eyes are much lighter and I have a little more energy. Hopefully, that’s because of all the B12 I’m gaining from my Nutritional Yeast supplementation.

As we transition from fall to winter and Christmas, the roller coaster can be a physical problem. I know that some days I feel like I can do something, and then the next day or two I’m exhausted and in more pain. These up and down days can be hard to deal with. We have to get out the ice packs or heating pads. More rest is needed, too.

I pace as much as possible, but sometimes it’s not enough. It’s important to forgive yourself and put it behind you. Otherwise, it’s easy to get down on yourself and end up in a mental funk. I know it will happen some days, no matter how hard I try to avoid it.

Reading verses helps me to find encouragement. God’s word brings refreshment to my soul. Here’s one of my favorite verses:

Psalm 145:18—The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day, I hope and pray that you’ll have the peace of God to comfort you.

Exhausting And Worth It

Oops, I did it again. I traveled to visit family and overdid it for an entire week. I spent 2 entire days in the car and 5 days playing with my grandson on the floor. This exhausting trip wasn’t a mistake, though. I knew what I was getting myself into. Letting myself become exhausted was worth it. As most of you with chronic illness know, there are times that we just throw our bodies into an adventure, knowing that we will pay. Life doesn’t promise to be easy, and some things are...

Oops, I did it again. I traveled to visit family and overdid it for an entire week. I spent 2 entire days in the car and 5 days playing with my grandson on the floor. This exhausting trip wasn’t a mistake, though. I knew what I was getting myself into. Letting myself become exhausted was worth it.

As most of you with chronic illness know, there are times that we just throw our bodies into an adventure, knowing that we will pay. Life doesn’t promise to be easy, and some things are worth the extra effort. It took so much energy and effort to put my body out there and take off on this trip. But, my desire to visit my loved ones outweighed the pain that would follow.

Chronic pain, acute pain, and complete exhaustion are the results of overdoing it. We put on a smile to hide our pain, but the smile isn’t fake. Enjoying a family visit is true enjoyment. Time with my children is a true blessing. I would go through all the pain to make these priceless memories happen.

We made the 10 hour drive last week. I prepared by packing comfortable clothes and my supportive shoes. Unfortunately, I took my shoes off in the car and broke my toe. All of my medicines, lidocaine gels, heating pads, and special diet foods were packed for the adventure. We travel frugally and don’t stop for expensive meals. So, we made sure to have healthy snacks in the car.

coffee cup

When traveling, it isn’t as easy as being at home. I wasn’t able to take everything that I count on for resting: my fan, my recliner, my water filter, and my frozen food. When my Small Fiber Neuropathy “attacks” happen, the fan really helps. My recliner is so comfortable and takes the pressure off of my back when it’s having sharp pains.

Having a water filter makes it easy for me to drink lots of water each day, without having to pay for bottled water. My freezer is stocked with organic meat and vegetables to help me cook healthy meals. We all know that traveling is not the best way to eat healthy meals. I always end up eating junk food and too much salt.

The good news is that I stayed on my sugar-free diet and have now lost a total of 5 pounds. I know it isn’t much, but it’s a good start. I’ve now adjusted to the sugar-free meal plan and don’t crave sugar anymore. I can’t tell that I feel any better, but I’ll continue to keep sugar out of my diet.

Playing on the floor with a 10 month old baby is a joy! It’s also much better for a young person than someone like me. My body hated me afterward, but the smiles from this sweet child were worth it. My sciatica really flared and I needed to work on my stretches and take anti-inflammatories. I also came down with laryngitis and a sore throat.

Now is the time to accept my fate and work toward recovering from the exhausting week. To get back to my normal I’ll need to take lots of time to rest and get extra sleep. It will be important to take any needed medication and use all the helpful tools I can find. Ice, heat, patches, gels, creams, and gentle exercises will be my friends.

Exhausting

It doesn’t do any good to fret or blame myself. There is no guilt in pretending to feel better than you really are feeling. It’s part of my chronic illness life. That doesn’t mean that I lie, because I do tell my family how I feel. But, sometimes the smiling comes easily and naturally. It’s alright to cry afterward if you need to.

I thank God that I have family that loves me and a grandchild. Being a grandparent is awesome! With Christmas coming soon, it will be such a blast to be with family again. Exhaustion will again be expected, but so will smiles.

Today is World Diabetes Day. Awareness is being spread all over the world in order to help people live their healthiest life with Type 1 Diabetes and to help or even prevent Type 2 Diabetes. They are two very different problems.

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, amputation, heart disease, kidney failure, and early death. Early detection is the best option. 463 Million people around the world have Diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes occurs when the pancreas no longer is able to produce insulin. The person with Type 1 must take insulin or they will die. Type 1 is an Auto-Immune reaction.

Type 2 Diabetes occurs usually with adults, and is preventable 50% of the time. It occurs when the body becomes insulin resistant or deficient.

If you want to find out your risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes, I encourage you to take this quiz. I’m at high risk and currently am doing many things (doctor instructed) to improve my risk level.

Take Quiz Here for Type 2 Diabetes Risk

How To Survive The Holidays With A Smile

November begins today and my mind is filled with thoughts about the upcoming holiday season. With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, I know that these months are filled with love and magic. But, for me and others with Chronic Illness, they’re also filled with fatigue, pain, depression, and stress.

November begins today and my mind is filled with thoughts about the upcoming holiday season. With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, I know that these months are filled with love and magic. But, for me and others with Chronic Illness, they’re also filled with fatigue, pain, depression, and stress.

My goal is to share with you a few ways to avoid some of the bad and replace it with more of the good. Just because we have Chronic Illness/s doesn’t mean that we can’t have a joyful and fun experience this year.

I’m glad to join A Chronic Voice this month with her November prompts. The words this month fit right in with my theme, and so let’s get started!

Paying, Attending, Organizing, Plunging, and Knowing are the prompts this month.

  1. Paying for Christmas is tough! Everyone expects a tree skirt covered in gifts, wrapped in Pinterest-ready paper and bows. Not only does Christmas cost a lot of money, it costs us our energy and demands our mental focus. This can prove to be a cost that’s too high to pay. I already have lots of medical debt that I’m paying off a little each month, but I still want to give gifts that are loved and appreciated. I also want to feel good enough to stay out of the bed for these special days. Pacing my physical activities is a must. Budgeting each expense is also a must.
  2. Attending the holiday events is important to me and my family. This is the time to schedule a few of the events to my calendar. I will have to put them in order of importance. We can’t attend everything, so we pick the best and leave a few days in between each one.
  3. Organizing is the part of the holidays that should be the first priority. If you want to thrive instead of survive, you’ll join me in trying to organize as much as possible. That’s why I created the Free Christmas Shopping Planner. It contains many pages of planners and calendars, so that you can carefully plan the holiday season according to your lifestyle. You’ll feel more in control, even though your body doesn’t always cooperate.
  4. Plunging forward into the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons can be fun! Yes, there are going to be a few pity-parties and near-meltdowns. Don’t beat yourself up when you need to crash or go to bed for a while. This is just part of our Chronic Life and there’s no need to feel guilty. But, plunging in with our whole heart makes life more joyful. Remember, Joy to the World, the Lord has come, and this alone brings me joy.
  5. Knowing that I have choices gives me confidence that I’ll have many smiles on my face during the next two months. Knowing that I’ll have some frowns and tears (well, maybe not tears with Sjogren’s) during the next two months is a logical result of stress. I won’t blame myself if I can’t cook everything for parties like I did when I was healthier. Bringing a pie or vegetable plate from your local grocer is just fine. Knowing that I can say No is powerful. Knowing that each holiday will come whether I’m a perfect host may feel terrifying, but it’s really not. We have to ask for help and know that we are worthy of smiling through the holidays, no matter what.
Joy

I hope you’ll enjoy the next two months and remember to smile, because the holidays are about giving thanks and celebrating the birth of Christ. It doesn’t have to drag us down with expectations that are superficial. Create your own plan and enjoy the love of family and friends. That’s enough.
