Is it Florida or is it Rhus Tox?

Here I sit in the Sunshine State, which is finally sunny after two very cloudy and windy days, and I realize that my scalp doesn’t hurt as much as it has in the past. Hmmm…I took my first dose of Rhus tox (poison ivy) a week ago Monday and my second dose last night (sorry,Continue reading “Is it Florida or is it Rhus Tox?”

Witchy Woman Mach II by Liz Saunders

What’s another name for Witchy Woman?  I need a moniker for Witchy Woman Mach II.  Madam Woo?  Helga Hufflepuff? I thought my previous naturopath came up with some interesting ideas…take Indigo at dusk or dawn when the sky is indigo…but WW Mach II has a whole new level of weird for me. On Thanksgiving MondayContinue reading “Witchy Woman Mach II by Liz Saunders”

Of course you don’t need a wheelchair! by Liz Saunders

I don’t need a wheelchair?  Are you kidding?  What else can go wrong? No matter who I asked prior to my surgery “Am I going to need a wheelchair?” the answer was categorically “no”.   Clearly none of these people have had a total toe bi-lateral arthroplasty.  I was told I would need crutches to getContinue reading “Of course you don’t need a wheelchair! by Liz Saunders”

Witchy Woman strikes again! by Liz Saunders

This week, I went to see my surgeon at Toronto East General Hospital for my 4 week check up on my restructured wrist.   I didn’t really know what I expected; I had been told I would be in my splint for 3 months so figured this was just to make sure my hand was stillContinue reading “Witchy Woman strikes again! by Liz Saunders”

Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders

I can’t believe two weeks have passed since my last blog. During the cruise, when I was in so much pain from my arthritis, I promised myself that when I returned I would get on the phone to my hand and foot surgeon and make appointments.  Well, I like to keep my promises to myselfContinue reading “Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders”

Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders

In preparation for our vacation, I made a trip to Riverdale Homeopathy on the Danforth to pick up some Calcarea Phorphoric.  This is the most amazing stuff that Witchy Woman suggested I take for pain relief for my arthritis.  The one thing I know about Florida is that while there’s a Dollartree, CVS, Publix, WalgreenContinue reading “Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders”

An interesting month… by Liz Saunders

Where did the last month go? Back at the beginning of September (I know, that was 2 months ago) I signed up a new virtual client, who was actually someone for whom I had worked as a subcontractor for a colleague, a few years ago.  Great fun, booking appointments, talking to lots of people onContinue reading “An interesting month… by Liz Saunders”

And the journey continues….by Liz Saunders

It’s now been 17 days since I took the B.C.  I had a meeting with Witch Keila on day 12 and she tells me that based on certain incidents over the first 12 days, it’s working.  For the record, despite my threat to Google B.C., I have restrained myself. I mentioned in a previous postContinue reading “And the journey continues….by Liz Saunders”

B.C. plus 9 by Liz Saunders

You will recall that 9 days ago, at 6:20 a.m. (in accordance with Witchy Woman’s instructions) I took my dose of B.C.  I was hoping to report back on changes or experiences but there’s been little to report. I had no idea what to expect – which is probably a good thing because I haven’tContinue reading “B.C. plus 9 by Liz Saunders”

B.C plus 3 by Liz Saunders

Wow, I did not sleep well Friday night.    Sometimes my Restless Leg Syndrome actually affects my back – don’t ask me how – and I end up with back twitchies.  Not sure if I was over tired or this has anything to do with B.C.  In any event, I slept on a golf ball forContinue reading “B.C plus 3 by Liz Saunders”
