Eating for better health

Okay, I know in my last RAD Caregiver post I said that my next article would be discussing stem cell research and Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease, but we recently started a group on Facebook, I Take Pictures of My Fruits and Vegetables Before I Juice Them, and we have had many people express interest in our new eating habits; in particular, what recipes we use. Well, the fact of the matter is that we do not have any recipes at all. However, we do have a lot of photos, so if you look at them you will see the recipe.

I have been juicing for about two years now and Tanya (my girlfriend, who has RAD) has recently decided to join me. I tried to get her into juicing earlier, but she just was not impressed by the taste. Then one night she watched the movie, ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.’ The next morning she asked me to show her how to use the juicer. Things have never been the same. She got into it, big time.

Burzynski, South Park and RAD

Since I promised Tanya that I would write 365 blog posts that would help bring awareness of Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and to help promote the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation I have been attempting to be a little more aware of things that happen in our daily lives so I can be a little more diverse in my writings. While it would certainly be quite cute if all I did was write about our daily lives and how much fun we have together, it would not really do much to educate people about RAD.

Now, before I get started I want to apologize in advance as I know I am going to go off on tangents at times; in fact, this particular post is only part one of at least two parts. I usually write these things in my head before I sit down to my laptop, and there is a possibility that it will be a three part article. I will attempt to tie the tangents together so you will not leave confused, but perhaps will understand the frustration those with RAD deal with on a regular basis. I am afraid some of this frustration may be self imposed. Continue reading

Training baddog

Those that know me know that Harley-Davidson is one of my greatest passions. If I was put in the situation that I had to give up photography or motorcycles, I would have to drop the camera. It is my therapy, my release, my church. Living in Southern California gives me a riding season of 12 months so when I feel the need to get away from the hassles of everyday life, escape is as close as my garage. There are a couple days a year I like to go riding whether or not I “feel the need” based solely on the fact that there is no traffic. When you live in LA, you have to take advantage of these things. One day is Christmas; the other is Superbowl Sunday.

This past Superbowl Sunday was gorgeous around here. It was close to 80 degrees out and because the Superbowl was starting around 3:30 PM local time, it was a safe bet that this was going to be a great day for a ride. The problem was, Tanya was feeling really wiped out from her Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and was not feeling up to it. Well, after the guilt I felt being in Las Vegas last month, you might imagine that I was a little hesitant just going off and having a good time without her. I am just not wired that way. To her credit, a couple hours later she said she would like to go for a ride, but she only felt capable of going out for a few minutes. That was not really what I had in mind. Continue reading
