July 19, 2012 2 Comments

It’s been over two weeks since I got the news I already knew. It’s been over two weeks since I decided to be the proof of what I say I believe. It’s been over two weeks since I consumed dairy of any kind, and my only sugar has consisted of extremely small quantities of raw …

I was up until after midnight last night reading and processing the available information on nourishing my body back to health. It seems there are a number of considerations. I need to detox.

I am home today, ditching work/school. Funny thing about it….it was an easy decision. Usually it is an agonizing decision and unless I or a child is on our “deathbed”, off to work I trudge.
