Our Veggies Survived 2 feet of snow and ice

by Dr Jo

How is your 2009 so far?

Ours has been a most interesting adventure. Here’s a follow-up to the snow and ice saga at the Tillman mountain home. The snow started falling on December 14th. We left in almost white out conditions for the valley. My husband Pat went back home that day and didn’t get out for the rest of the week. Immediately after the snow fell we had 2 days of hard freezes and everything turned to ice. Pat had to spend 3 hours digging himself out of the snow and ice on our ¾ mile road just to get down to the valley for Christmas.

We wound up staying at each of our daughters’ homes for 10 days total and moved the family Christmas gathering to their houses since no one could get in to our place.

By January 1st, we thought maybe we could try going home. Sure enough we did – but had to walk in the ¾ mile because the road was still thick ice. Our 4-wheel drive pickup with studded mud and snow tires went slippery sliding. After Pat spent 5 days moving snow and ice with our tractor, we finally drove into our place (despite some icy patches) yesterday – January 11th – 4 weeks after the original snowfall that started all this. Yeah!  We’ve been riding our quad ATV up to the paved road to our truck the last 2 weeks. That’s a real waker-upper in the freezing morning hours.

But it’s all great adventure.

Yesterday I went down to the garden for the first time since the snowfall. It’s still pretty well covered in snow, but amazingly some plants seem to have survived this month of snow and ice. The cabbage and broccoli look lively and the volunteer snap peas look perky – unbelievable. Will be interesting to see if any of that produce ever matures.

Love a Lot

by Dr Jo

Enjoy your holidays. Christmas can be a very merry season until all the germs that are flying around lay you low.

So here’s my Christmas gift to you, tips on staying healthy and having a really great time enjoying the people in your life (even the ones you don’t look forward to being with).

 Simplify, decrease the busy-ness of the season:

   Keep gift giving simple – it’s the love that counts.

   Does decorating stress you? Just put out the large decorations. They do more to create the Christmas atmosphere than all those little items that take so much time.

   No time for that time eating task of wrapping packages – use decorative Christmas bags and then save them to use again next year if they get left at your house.

   Make Christmas dinner a potluck.

   It’s the love that counts.

 Hug a lot, even the unloveables. You may be surprised at the love that returns to you.

 Laugh a lot:

   Even when the power goes out and you have 13 people staying in your home, snowed in with you.

   Hug a lot – it will keep you warm when the heating source is defunct because the power is out.

   Enjoy the fun of having to live by candle light. After all candle light is romantic.

   It’s the love that counts.

 Protect yourself from those germs:

(These recommendations should not be taken by pregnant women or young children.)

   Take extra Vitamin D if you live where you can’t get good sun exposure in the winter months. Just about all adults can take 2,000 IU per day. If you’re around an infected person, take an extra 2,000 to 4,000 IU per day for a few days.

   If you start to come down with a virus, take 100,000 to 300,000 IU of vitamin A per day and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin E per day for only 3 days. If you have liver disease, do not take these high doses of vitamin A.

   Some people find that taking extra Vitamin C helps protect them from germs. If your body deals with synthetic Vitamin C well, gradually increase the amount you take to bowel tolerance. That means stay at the highest dose you can take before it causes diarrhea.

   Love a lot – germs hate that.

 Remember to love a lot – that’s what this season is all about. It’s a celebration of the day that God’s great love took on human form and walked the earth so we can always stay in God’s abundant love. Love is spelled Jesus.

God bless you. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Much Love,

Dr. Jo

Be a Winner – Stay Healthy This Holiday Season

by Dr Jo

The saying “Garbage in, garbage out” can be applied to many things. But nowhere is it more appropriate than in terms of what you put in your mouth. To achieve optimal health, you must put high-quality fuel in your body. The right food choices will boost your energy, improve the clarity of your mind, optimize your weight, increase your lifespan, and protect you from all those germs flying around in the holiday season.

For optimal digestion and performance eat four to six small meals a day. When you eat healthy small meals throughout the day, you won’t be so tempted by all the illness-promoting, everywhere-present sweets tempting you during the holidays. Choose those meals from organic, whole foods. In each meal include:

1. Protein
Base every meal upon a healthy source of protein. If you eat animal products, choose those from animals that are raised on their natural diet. Free-range poultry and eggs, wild fish, raw unpasteurized dairy and grass-fed meats come from animals raised in a healthy manner. Nuts and beans are also good sources of protein.

2. Fat
Choose the RIGHT fats for your meals. Healthy fats should come from naturally raised animals also. Include these healthy fats in your meals: wild fish, olive oil, coconut oil, walnut and macadamia oils, vegetables, nuts, and avocados in your meals. Avoid processed vegetable and seed oils and the dreaded “hydrogenated” oils (trans-fats) like you would avoid the plague.

3. Carbohydrates
Your carbs should come from sources that drip sugar into your blood stream slowly as you digest them – non-starchy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, whole fruits, and berries. Avoid sugar, soft drinks, fruit juices, refined flour, refined grains, and starches.

You will find that I only used these healthy foods in my cookbook, Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. It makes fixing healthy meals so easy.

Treat your co-workers to healthy food for holiday celebrations. Give them the gift of life and health. Take a tray of raw or soaked-overnight nuts and dried fruit to the office. Or how about a veggie tray with an unusual but tasty dip like Marinated Black Beans.
Add another surprise for your co-workers or friends, print out a copy of the Marinated Black Beans recipe to share with them. You can easily share individual recipes by downloading and printing out the E-book Version of Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook . You have my permission to print out and share an occasional recipe, but not the entire book. I trust you.
You will find other healthy, scrumptious appetizers and dips in Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook.
Get yourself a copy today.

Better yet make your shopping for gifts easy. Give your loved ones and friends the gift of health. Order a copy of Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook for everyone on your list. It’s the gift that keeps on giving life for years and years.

Blessings,
Dr. Jo
