AS YOU CAN TELL I MISS THE PART OF BLOGGING WHICH ALLOWS ME TO PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE, BUT I ALSO MISS DOING PROJECTS AROUND THE HOUSE

Because the neurologist and neurosurgeon both told me the Androgel could be the source of the multiple mini strokes hence the scar tissue on the brain, I have gone off the testosterone replacement under their recommendation.  I need to try and get a follow-up with the endocrinologist to see if there is a safe replacement.  If not, I will have to live with LT.  My major complaint, even though my temp is 96.8, I feel like it is 102.  The hot flashes are real and intense.

I have been looking for herbs and other choices to replace various medications.  I have my BP under control with herbs.  It is not unusual without the medication to have a BP of 96/52.  My cholesterol without the medication is under control.  I am using fish oil for the triglycerides.

I emailed a cousin in Nicaragua for herbal remedies our grandmother taught her.  She is an actual pharmacist, but still uses the treatments our grandmother's grandfather on her mothers side taught her.  He was 100% indigenous and a Nicaro healer.

I just need to find herbs for neuropathy and sleep.  I do drink manzanilla tea before bed time every night.

I am taking albahaca to help with the breathing.  It seems to help.  We have a pretty big plant.  I may try and start making tea with it instead of eating the leaves.

ANY WHO

I love working with my hands also.  What you see is one of two drainage systems in my backyard.  The previous owners swore the backyard never floods.  Well I moved in 6 years ago while a tropical depression hung over Brownsville.  It was a nightmare moving from the rental house to this house in the rain.  Well the last trip was to get Buster and Keaton before sending in the cleaners.  I let them out back and I see the entire backyard under 4-6 inches of rain.

What you see is a large flower pot with a shower drain at the bottom.  This allowed me to connect two inch PVC to the bottom and on both sides of the house run the pipes to the curb,  This has significantly reduced the flooding around the house and pool.  As is always the case, when we get a heavy rain I have to clear the garbage from the bottom so the water can flow.  What you see is the water going down after I cleaned the bottom.

I love using my hands and doing projects.

IF ANYONE KNOWS

I am looking for any natural remedies for nerve pain and to aid in sleep.  I want a root or a plant - no pills.  It is time I cleanse my body of all these toxins and go natural.  I am down to medications for the nerve pain and to help me sleep.  I'm going all natural.

If I go all natural for my health needs, doesn't that entitled me to walk around naked where ever I want to.
