Muscle Pain, Fibro, CFIDS

An article in the journal of Medical Hypothesis proposed that glutathione, an antioxidant essential for lymphocyte function, may be depleted in CFIDS patients. Glutathione is needed for both the immune system and for aerobic muscular contraction. Depletion of the supplement could cause the muscular fatigue and myalgia associated with CFIDS/FMS.

So you want to lose weight?

"We are not overweight, we are overly acidic," according to Dr. Robert Young, who is the author of "The pH Miracle." I bought my "pH Miracle,"book used on, but you can find it at the library.
An alkaline diet is not an easy diet, but a very healthy one. I lost ten pounds in one month. I also reversed liver cancer and Chronic fatigue.
1.Get some pictures of you when you were thinner or someone you'd like to look like--make it realistic-- and say the affirmation over and over again, "I enjoy weighing my ideal weight." Put the picture on the refrigerator.
2. Eat alkaline.Cucumbers are the most alkaline food you can eat. Orange juice is the most acidic. Vinegar is acidic. It is best to eat alkaline foods--broccoli, romaine lettuce, radish, parsley, celery, jicama, cauliflower, salsa made with lemon juice. Drink green drinks. Avoid all sugar.
3.Keep a food journal of everything you eat and what time you eat it.
4.Start an exercise program and keep track of the amount of exercise you do each day.
5.Check out my positive affirmations at, under articles.
6.Don't buy food that you shouldn't eat. Have only healthy food in your home.
7. Keep celery sticks, cucumber, tomatoes and jicama available to munch on.
8.Keep a journal and write out your feelings instead of eating those feelings.
9.Chromium picolinate can help you lose weight and balance your blood sugar.

Donating Organs

David's daughter, Kemy, (my step-daughter) was in Park City, having flown in from Brea , California, July 3rd for a family reunion with all of her children and siblings. We were eager to see her and celebrate her 50th birthday. While we were driving up the canyon, she was water sKiing at the Jordenelle Resivoir and had a massive stroke. She was flown to University Hospital and was pronounced brain dead on July 4th.
Her wish was to donate her organs. She is gone, but others may have their life spared, prolonged or enriched because of her desire to share. .
