Last year at this time I was struggling with an upper respiratory virus that just wouldn’t go away!  It started with a cold in October and would bounce between a head cold and a very chesty cough.  I saw my PCP (personal care physician) a couple of times between the months of October 2012 and March 2013 and was told each time that it was a virus and nothing could be done for it.  I just had to “Ride it out”.

As some of you may know, my family was dealing with the decline in health and eventually the death of my mother just before Christmas last year also.  So I attributed my chronic sickness with several things, lack of enough sleep, poor diet, and grandchildren who kept passing the cold virus around to all of us.

It just so happens that in November of last year, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  I had no idea at the time that my health and that of my families would be changed forever.

I started classes in January of 2013 and had learned so much by March of 2013.

My husband and I lost weight, which was a plus, but I also finally won the battle against the lingering rhino-virus.

Since then, my husband has lost a whopping 25 lbs and I have lost 20.  On this blog I will share with you ways for you and your family to get healthy and stay healthy.
