About Me

I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis,Osteonecrosis,Factor V Leiden (Heterogeneous) & Spondylolithesis L5S1, Hypothyroidism and HBP
I live with Chronic pain but am learning that through changes in diet and incorporating herbs and spices as well as essential oils I can learn to lower my inflammation and control my pain.

I will be sharing thoughts  recipes, and some herbal remedies I use I have found to help me along the way

It’s just things that helped me, and it is not to give any medical advice to anyone

Family history of heart disease.  I also have seen my fair share of Heart Disease from both parents to now include my husband

I wrote a Booklet for Patients with Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis  so they don’t fear the unknown and they can also share with their family members and doctors so everyone can have a better understanding of what Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis is.

Thanks For Stopping by
