Who I Am 

Hi I’m Deborah

I believe that the body always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is listening and doing what your body needs.

( Debla )

The goal of my blog is to give a voice to issues that are near and dear to my heart (meaning, issues I suffer from)( or someone I love does) that need a louder voice.  

Life is hard enough. Don’t go through life with pain that’s keeping you clutching the steering wheel. Join me as I learn to deal with Adrenal Fatigue- Bone Marrow Edema -Hashimoto’s- Hypothyroidism-Osteoarthritis- Osteonecrosis – Spondylolisthesis and how going to a mostly to a plant-based lifestyle and meditation helps my pain.

We will touch base and discuss and educate on treatments-products that seem to help or ease  pain based on my experience or if I have a guest on what worked for them. 

Also I believe that the body hears and takes on what the mind is saying, so we need to stay positive as hard as that can be sometimes, and remember there are some in an even worse situation than we are in.

The above photo was taken by me in Mill Creek State Park – In NE Ohio                                          

 Topics covered include:

Osteonecrosis  –  Factor V Leiden – Hashimotos –  Adrenal Fatigue –  Hypothyroidism – Osteoarthritis – Spondylolithesis L5 S1-  High Blood Pressure  – Weight Gain  – Exercising  when you have bone problems   –   Learn to Fight Inflammation – Using food as medicine to help heal the body.

I also randomly blog about books, recipes, my photos, products I find helpful to me, and other fun stuff.
I really hope you find support and helpful useful information here.

I hope you enjoy the site

About Me

I live with Chronic pain but am learning that through changes in exercises , diet and incorporating herbs and spices as well as tinctures, essential oils I can learn to lower my inflammation and control my pain to maybe not be totally pain free but to have it become tolerable

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


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
