Podcast: In the Event of an Emergency, Put you Own Mask on First

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.

This episode is dedicated to a dear friend of the practice that passed.  He will be remembered for his smile and quick, bent over swagger.  He was told to go to Florida and get his affairs in order several years ago after many cardiac and vascular procedures.  He was on a host of medications and could only walk 25 steps before his legs began to cramp when I met him at a young age of 59.  He lost weight and was able to walk without pain before life got in his way and ended taking his life at a very early age.  Grace and humility come in all shapes and sizes, and I will be ever grateful for having known him and learned from him.

Can you eat plant based with a history of kidney stones? Are they from calcium, oxalate, uric acid?  Plants? Animals?  I will set you mind at ease.  Spoiler, eat your vegetables and fruits.

    What a sad story about Roman….brought me to tears…wish I could have met him……..sounded like a wonderful human being……what a shame…..he was so very lucky to have met you…..

    The foot issues are interesting…..since I dance, I have had bone spurs and a very painful bunion on one foot ……and bone on bone in one big toe….I could barely walk ,much less dance…so I had surgeries for all….which terrified me,thinking,this is it…I may never dance again…….but the surgeries helped….if there was another way,a better way…of course I would have done it….I dance in heels for ballroom dancing and flat shoes for the other dancing……but I don’t over do it……..( long message,ha,ha!)
