More than just drugs and/or surgery. There are supplements, therapies, and a whole lot of healing going on – here are some of Aunty’s choices.

What to do for a cold

Aunty rarely gets sick.  It could be because she reaches for Congaplex by Standard Process Labs at the first hint of a sore throat, sniffles, or being around others who are sick. However, this time, with no Congaplex in sight, this cold that started as a slight sore throat became a cough with a fatigued body.  Yuck! *Update alert!  Ever hear of the hydrogen peroxide trick?  3 drops in your ear, for 10 minut ...

Aunty’s Quite Wonderful Broken Bones

See this cute little doggie?  His name is Toshi.  He is our daughter's 7 year old Sheltie, and he is dangerous for old ladies who try to keep up with his running while walking on uneven Kaimuki streets.  That is how Aunty tripped, flew forward, and broke 2 bones in her left forearm recently. As Aunty struggled up, holding her dirty misshaped wrist and battling shock, Toshi was not concerned and of no help.  ...

Is Oprah a big deal?

Watching Wayne Dyer's video on Wishes Fulfilled took Aunty on a search journey online about a movie he was involved with called "The Shift" produced by Oprah Winfrey's channel. This online journey took me to, the website of the famous Oprah Winfrey. Aunty never really got into Oprah before.  Our neighbor, Mrs. T would watch daily, almost religiously, as she rode her exercise bicycle every day at 4 ...

4-7-8 Breathing exercise for life, and magnets

Aunty first heard about this 4-7-8 breathing exercise from Kay of Musings.  This supposedly helps you fall asleep, and so Aunty, on the few occasions when it was hard to fall asleep at night, would breathe in, hold, and exhale continuously, and find herself becoming light headed - but still wide awake. Then, a link in one of Dr. Mercola's articles was to Dr. Andrew Weil's instructional video on only doing 4 ...

5 morning stretches – so easy, and they work!

One of the better health newsletters that Aunty subscribes to is Live in the Now.  The articles that arrive in my inbox are daily, and quite interesting.  The sales copy of its Stop Aging Now product line which correspond to health issues are compelling.  The "deals" are enticing.  More times than not, Aunty takes the bait and orders from them. The latest is a topical skin treatment with vitamin C that soun ...

Looking forward to 2017

Lani Kwon, a life coach that Aunty had the pleasure of listening to, sent Aunty an email with a link to an insightful article, entitled "Let go or be dragged into 2017". Based on numerology, the numbers 2, 0, 1, 6 add up to 9 - which is a very fiery, emotional, intense number that also signifies the end of cycles with sudden shocks, dramatic endings, and tying up loose ends. Which will lead us into 2017. Th ...

Whatcha doing?

Nick Polizzi is the Director at The Sacred Science team.  Aunty forgets how she found them, but it began with watching a documentary that they did in the jungles of Peru, taking 8 very ill people to a healing camp.  No running water, no electricity, bugs and critters, strange rituals, and primitive smashed root and bark meals prepared by people that did not speak their language, at all.  One of the rituals ...

Eat to starve cancer and obesity

When Aunty was young, which seems eons ago, hardly anyone had cancer.  Now, it seems commonplace, heart breakingly commonplace, and too often - harsh and fatal.  We live in a different time, with different environmental factors as well as different lifestyles, and we need to take charge of our choices before it is too late. This TED Ed talk by Dr. William Li of the Angiogenesis Foundation explains why and h ...

Aunty’s computer posture – fix!

Aunty's posture has been deteriorating - maybe because of entering the older lady phase of life, but maybe not. TaiChi is helping with balance.  Still, poor posture from sitting hours at the computer watching Korean dramas, blogging, inputting into Quickbooks, google searching, checking emails, etc. etc. etc. was taking its toll.  Playing Kuku-Kube (thanks or No thanks to Jalna, lol) has really made Aunty s ...

Aunty is the type of person that holds everything in.  It was how I was raised, and it has served me well thus far.  Maintaining pride, avoiding shame, putting on a smiling face that says that everything is alright.  Very Japanese.  My ancestors would be proud of me. This tradition and upbringing has been Aunty's cloak of invisibility and comfort.  This has been possible because of the undeniable Universal ...
