I was raised by strong people who taught me to stand up to bullies. I am giving thanks as I do all year long, but especially now. I also am grateful I worked with an amazing mentor in my twenties who taught me what health care really was. “You cannot cut, poison and burn yourselfContinue reading “Thanks Giving for No Chemo”
I lived 30 minutes from Ground Zero and I was a military wife on 9-11. I wrote my personal story about that day and the aftermath in my memoir Love And War In The Hamptons. But the truth is the aftermath continues frequently and silently with PTSD, anxiety and an autoimmune condition caused by theContinue reading “Remembering 9-11”
You see, my holistic health care plan is already designed to support the body’s own immune system. I will modify it with additional vitamin C, anti-viral herbs, and immune boosting teas and foods, along with a mask.
My own research made cannabis the first priority when it came to my health, and accessing it legally also covered my second priority, stress reduction.
As we drove over his Sag Harbor bridge, I told Harvey about Jordan Haerter. Then, at the traffic circle I told him about Joey Theinert, pointing to Shelter Island, where a ferry is named for him. I poured my heart out about my memoir, my ex and my father. I told him how it was so hard to live in the Hamptons where people seem to have no idea we are at war. I told him how I cut a lot out of my memoirs.
The more I practice self-care, the more my health care plan resembles caring for a child.
An employee at the Trulieve dispensary in New Port Richey, Florida also thought that my patient number was cool. I am one of the first.
Also of note is that you can pay the Florida Department of Health for your card and renewal with a debit card

This short musical trailer gives a glimpse into my memoir of my life as a military wife during the beginning of the Iraq War. My now ex-husband was deployed while I tried to deal in the Hamptons.
As stress is the cause of most dis-ease, I limit it in any possible way, as mentioned in previous posts and memoirs. I spend my self-created downtime in my own healing places, usually on the water. I often think of those who follow conventional paths and pray for them. I also think of those whoContinue reading “Healing Places”
“It would be easier,” my mother replied matter-of-factly when I mentioned the option of being married to my career instead of a man this morning. Another mother figure, my ex-mother-in-law, said something similar, back in those days. We were watching one of my favorite HBO series, Six Feet Under, and she was particularly fond ofContinue reading “Single on Purpose: an Unconventional Life”

I am purifying my life and limiting things such as sitting, talking, eating, people, places, plans, news, noise, negativity, driving and drama.
“We all have stories–ongoing and ever-changing–that we tell ourselves to make sense of our lives. They can help us heal and powerfully guide us through life, or just as powerfully, hold us back,” Judith Fertig

I was like a kid in the sandbox. On my hands and knees pulling any crab-grassy, thorny, prickly growths from my new garden beds and pathways. Despite my appreciation for the beauty of some weeds and respect for their purposes, it felt so good to remove things that had the potential to hurt me duringContinue reading “Digging deep”
But it has a happy ending. The medicinal plant is saving thousands of lives, and harming none. In fact. There are many side benefits… Here’s my latest article for Green Flower Media.
I wrote this article last week for Green Flower Media, but mostly I wrote it for my mother. She suffers from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The article also links to a story I wrote about my own journey toward the medicinal weed for breast cancer. https://www.learngreenflower.com/articles/331/cannabis-please-for-parkinson-s-disease Decades of negative stigma and false information about theContinue reading “Cannabis Please for Parkinson’s Disease”
I was back in New York for the holidays, reminiscing with family over vintage photos and Christmas Cream, a decadent adult treat bottled and gifted annually by family friends, when I recalled a conversation I had earlier with my niece about chia seeds. “That’s my one thing I do to prevent cancer,” she said. IContinue reading “Just ONE thing”
Within months of treatment with oil called Cannabidiol (CBD), Charlotte was able to walk, talk, and feed herself. The treatment has high amounts of CBD. It’s a potent, natural product of the Cannabis plant… Yet Charlotte’s Web does not contain chemicals that get you high.
An excerpt from an article I wrote for the Institute for Natural Healing… Five-year old Charlotte Figi had a genetic disorder called Dravet syndrome, she had hundreds of seizures a week. That was three years ago. Charlotte’s parents began a hospice program because she was starving to death. Their daughter was barely able to swallow water. FacedContinue reading “The Marijuana Plant Saved Charlotte, and Many Others”
“Think before other people think for you,” Brian Clement went on, calling the modern medical system a “con job” where people are given pharmaceutical remedies that create bigger problems in most cases.
As part of my journey toward optimal health, I have been working at releasing stored toxic memories, emotions, and relationships that are having a negative effect on my health and the quality of my life.
Combined with soft music, pillows, towels and meditation in my bathtub, my plan of one year of heavy juicing and enemas became a ritual I looked forward to, with after effects of feeling clean, inside and out.
