Who I Am 

Hi ‘m Deborah   –   (Debla ) Stands for Deborah L . Andio

Thanks for Stopping by Welcome To my Blog

Ya know life is hard enough, don’t go through life dealing with constant chronic pain ,stress or anxiety that’s keeping you clutching  at the steering wheel.

Learn to help ease your pain through food, meditation, forest bathing and living a grateful life.

I am a patient advocate and I educate and promote awareness on several  topics .

Join me as I learn and share how to deal with Adrenal FatigueBone Marrow Edema -Hashimoto’s- Hypothyroidism-Osteoarthritis- Osteonecrosis – Spondylolisthesis and how going to a mostly to a plant-based but flexitarian lifestyle and meditation helps ease my pain and hopefully drop some weight.

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.

Finding delicious, wholesome  food is not always easy when you’re eating out at a restaurant, but it’s totally possible when you make it at home I’m Debbie a flexitarian that eats mostly plant based and I am changing my weight and improving my health.

The goal of my blog is to raise awareness , educate and 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.

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 make and use, as well as many products I love that I have found to help me along the way it is not to give any medical advice to anyone, just my own personal experience.
