i've been having alot of routine medical tests this winter just to see the state of my health as i approach 60 this spring. over the past 2 weeks i've been diagnosed with osteoporosis and hypothyroidism. the figures are alarming. but i have no symptoms of either - never a break or a fracture, no height loss, no lack of energy. it doesn't feel right to me. i know i don't want to jump into pharmaceuticals, last week i managed to get in to see a wonderful homeopathic doctor (she practices in barrie ontario but comes here for a week every 3 months. the timing was perfect. and she's looking into any imbalances - ph, hormones, minerals). i'm looking at this as a chance to help my body work more efficiently. definitely more exercise but also more attention to what i'm feeding my body.
i spun "good bones" feeding good healthy intentions into it. on my way to putting it into the soak, i turned the corner into the kitchen too fast and ran into the hutch, stubbing my toe so hard i cried. no breaks, no fractures. i know i have good bones...
