That can't be right.

I first became interested in holistic therapy when Tavish had had his second Urinary tract infection by the age of four months. I was in a health food store looking for some baby massage oil that my massage therapist recommended. As I was consulting with the lady managing the store at the time, we got on the topic of Tavish's health. She said go to a naturopathic Dr. So I did. I found my Dr. in the Yellowpages and made the call. I was really happy to find a Doctor who had a son only one week older that Tavish was so was comfortable discussing my sons health with him cause he knew what a baby at that age demanded.
After a few months of Dr.s suggestions and supplements we had taken Tavish to a urologist. We had met her and went over the history and she was surprised that with Tav's history that he had not had another recurrence but since there weren't any we had put all the invasive tests aside, we would do the tests only if there were another occurrence. Haven't been back to see her.
This appointment that I had with the Dr. was the first for me. I had planned to see him a long long long time ago but having the demands of 2 kids delayed it. However I am so glad I had gone in and do wish that I had gone sooner.
Since following the Dr.s advise about diet and supplements I have lost 9lbs in 5 days... It can't be right. I did use his scale both times and that is what it is telling me. I don't notice a difference but hope to soon. I can't wait to see what the next week shows.

10 weeks till holidays

So again it has been a while since my last posting, I thank all of you for hanging on.
I have been trying to lose 20 lbs for a while now and not doing well. I finally went to see my Naturopath for some help and advice. I was a bit discouraged when he weighed me and my 20 lbs turned to 30. sigh... How can just getting on a scale at 10 lbs.
However he did tell me "scales are for fish" I almost kissed him. I held back for a few reasons... His idea is the same as mine that scales are for tracking your success only, not to determine how you look.
So, starting tomorrow I am detoxifying and cleansing, I will also be taking some suggested supplements for some muscle stress in my foot and shoulder. Apparently those with chronic pain are not all that successful with weight loss. I will also be going in for some acupuncture treatments to help with those.
I know a lot of people who are sceptical with holistic practices but this guy cured Tavish of his Urinary tract infections, hasn't had one since being treated by Dr. Richmond. So I am a believer.
Wish me luck.

How rude of me

I really must apologise for the lack of postings. Also with the lack of postings comes the lack of reading of other blogs. I will blame it on just being busy. The truth is I still spend a lot of time on facebook. I am at the computer ten times a day you would think I would be able to find something to post about. I simply forget. I have come downstairs a few times to get something or to change loads 0f laundry and I think hmm I will check my messages. I check my messages and forget why I was down here in the first place. Also it is summer time, I am sure when the weather turns cooler there will be more time to spend on facebook oops I mean more time to think about blogging.
I must apologise to the anonymous reader that noticed I had forgotten to spellcheck last post. I do it often and since my fingers can be a bit dyslexic when I type I truly need to check before I post. There are always red underlines all over the place when I finish a post and I think I usually do check. I just get excited to pop out a blog that taking that extra step fails to enter my mind. Also, I don't proofread cause I am lazy. I also don't really care much about sentence structure and grammar and stuff like that because I am not sure if I remember all of the rules. So, for those of you who are into the Art of writing proper sentences and paragraphs good for you, I simply am not.
