Thanks and Here's Some Possibly Helpful Information
HI Grandma--I came across your website after enduring 24 hours of near constant diarrhea. Getting a little panick-y, I tried your suggestions and--yep--they worked! Thank you so much! I have a strong interest in holistic health (and a degree in herbal studies)so, I'm not surprised it worked. Just very grateful that you are making this information available to people!
I read about your upcoming surgery and wanted to suggest you check out transdermal magnesium--one of the great curealls that is being rediscovered. So many ills--from dental problems, headaches, to osteoporosis, skin problems, fatigue--are being traced to a deficiency in magnesium. While many people know about magnesium, they don't know the incredible rapid changes people can experience from having magnesium applied through the skin. And how much of what gets taken orally gets lost through the digestive process. You may find this helpful to yourself and the people who read your website. Knowing about it has been a boon for so many of us. For more info, check out Magnesium for Life and (products) Ancient Minerals.
Yours in health, Logan
(PS: I forwarded your gin and raisins recipe to my 80 year old Mom who has arthritis now in her hands. I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it!)
