Immune System Health

My health is NOT your responsibility. I will NOT blame you when I get sick and in return you should NOT blame me when you get sick. Its my job to take care of my immune system.
The choices I make daily. How I take care of my body. The foods I eat. The products I put on my body. The things I breathe in. How much sleep I get. It all matters and either supports all of my body systems in doing their job well or hinders them.

The Next Step- Organic, Pasture Raised and Grass Fed

I learned years ago that If  you can’t afford to buy everything organic, do what you can to choose organic meat. Think about it. Whatever the animals eat, you eat.

The Persistance of a Beagle

The Persistance of a Beagle
Scout’s behavior (and Mercy’s too) can often be bothersome to me. If it’s not asking for treats, they may be annoying me with requests to be let out in the middle of the night or to play or walk at an inconvenient time. Mercy, my lab, bless her heart, will ask but often is quick to give up on me. Scout, on the other hand, will keep knocking. Keep asking. Keep seeking me out. He pleads with me with his big beagle eyes and cries until I say yes to him. I think there’s a lesson here about not giving up.
