Gluten-Free Pancakes

Here’s what my nutritionist friend said, Dorothy., about getting your body back to normal after taking steroids. Nothing to do but continue eating healthy.

I asked, “Hi Dr. T,  What do I need to take after a steroid prescription for my body to come back to normal?  Probiotics and potassium? I can’t find anything on a quick internet search.”

“Hi,

I would recommend drinking orange juice and eating other things that are high in potassium.  Such as beans, potatoes, bananas and other fruit.  It is very dangerous to be too high in potassium so I am afraid the supplements could bring you up higher if you are not monitoring your levels.  It is always safe to consume more potassium but not necessarily take the supplements.”

Word/Phrase of the Day – Jugo de naranja – orange juice

Tip of the Day – You know what’s funny, is that my whole life I’m not interested in orange juice. It doesn’t go well with my body, even though the taste is so good. And these last two weeks, orange juice appeals to me so much! I must’ve needed it. So go with your body!

Turmeric Rose Tea Cookies

You know what I finally took, at my chiropractor’s advice, for the herniated disc? Steroids. Can you believe it? Me, who barely takes one or zero aspirin per year. I was supposed to take 3 the first day, then one a day for the next 4 days. But I just took one the first day, to see how my body could take it. Good! So then I took 3 yesterday and felt so good. Swelling going perhaps 95% away, even after teaching yoga. And today almost nothing yet. Oh, man. And I told my daughter how I feel expansive, strong, confident, loving, hugging people, extremely grateful, awakened! And she said that was entirely weird, ’cause steroids make you angry, edgy, etc… Wow, I’m grateful. Very, very grateful.

Words of the Day – disco herniado – herniated disc
Tip of the Day – We don’t like to put chemicals in our body. But isn’t it wonderful to realize how good we treat our bodies, and then to add one thing when you need, when it is there for you, and you just need it for a short time, is such a blessing!
