I went to hear the same speaker that I heard last year - Rhonda Marsh.  She is in the same building as Bill and Kate and Amy saw her at one time.  Anyway… some reminders and tidbits from her talk…
.  I went to hear Rhonda Marsh RN. MSN. FNP-BC… have no idea what they all stand for.  She works in Integrative Health… tell Zach he should somehow fit this into being a DR.  By integrating traditional medicine with holistic therapies they provide a comprehensive healthcare approach.

She specializes in ADD/ADHD, autism, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, diabetes, fibromyalgia, allergies, metal toxicity, weight loss, thyroid disorders

proven that organic strawberries have more antioxidants than regular.  Pay attention to the dirty dozen list:  celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries, nectarines, kale, cherries, potatoes, grapes, lettuce, spinach…. Highest in pesticides – especially ones those are imported.  Buy organic!

Need 25-40 grams a day of fiber… quinoa, brown rice, whole grains…reduces circulating levels of estrogen, lowers blood cholesterol levels.

Olive oil and coconut oil are best for you.  In fact marathoners will use coconut oil to enhance performance – boosts immune system, energy.  It also has anti-aging properties (I just bought a case!).  Coconut oil even though it is a saturated fat improves heart health, boosts thyroid, increases energy levels, and lowers cancer risk.  Canola oil, sunflower oil etc tend to oxidize when heated and are then not healthy.

Omega 3… wild caught salmon, avoid larger fish that have lived longer in the ocean and have accumulated more mercury…  High mercury levels can mimic symptoms for MS

Fish Oil… if taking as a supplement, pay attention to DHA and EPA levels not just the mg.  My bottle said 1000 mg but the DHA and EPA were 300.  My label said to take 1 a day but you need at least 2000mg so basing it on DHA and EPA I would actually need 7 a day.  DHA (some long word with acid at the end)… helps with heart health, mood, good treating for ADD, ADHD.  Make sure the supplement uses small fish not the large ones that have been exposed to mercury.

Labels:  when it says 100% of recommend daily allowances.  60 is the recommended level of vitamin C but that level just prevents scurvy, you actually need more vitamin C than the “recommended”.

Vitamin A D K you can take in one dose but C needs to be spaced out in order for your body to absorb it.

There is a test… blood I believe, that costs 2500.  but is covered by Medicare and most insurances (not Aetna which is what I have) that does an analyses and gives her a 12 page report of markers to see what your body needs.  You may be taking the recommended dose but your body may need more.

Next month someone will be doing acupuncture on us!

I can’t have CC before July 12th.

This Thursday I will be getting ready to go out of town to see, Matt, Jen, and her parents in St. Louis. Next week I will be coming back on Thursda, from Munster so I can’t have CC before July 12th. If anyone want to before please do so. We had a great time at the Weding in Ill, this weekend and enjoyed Bobby’s first Speech as Best Man. We got lots of Compliments and I reconnected with a lady I taught with When I was Library Assistant at school 91. She lives in Fishers and is retired. Lost her husband a couple of years ago. I knew him also.

Right now Al is at Hooverwood for Rehab.

I don’t know how long this will last but right now Al is in rehab, at Hooverwood, and planning to go back to Morningside, eventually. I don’t see it my self but he did rally from Hospice so anything is possible, I guess. I hope to go to Kate’s next Thursday. I’ll see what happens with Al and hope I get into the stressful pace of Summer Reading. After the Sunday Kickoff I was exhauseted. I enjoyed being off today. I saw Men in Black at Trader’s Point 3D Imax. it was a great deversion! How are all of you? I see Barb at Zumba but I didn’t make it tonight. I am trying to get back to exercise after a couple of weeks of not going at all. Tomorrow is swimming.
