Thoughts on the Causes of Peripheral Nerve Hyperexcitability

This is another update on my health journey, especially for those diagnosed with Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome/Peripheral Nerve Hyperexcitability.  I hope it can add something worthwhile to your own healing journey.


Last week was my second appointment with the neurologist and her insights coupled with everything I have learnt so far in the natural/alternative health field has made me think more deeply about the nature of this disease.

Discovering Our God-given Destination

Some great thoughts which are in line with what has been going on in my mind and heart lately – MUST READ!!!

The WORD Detective

Scripture Reading and Text:

[1] THE PLANS of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue. [2] All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart).  [3] Roll your works upon the Lord  [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed”  (Proverbs 16:1-3 Amplified Bible).


“If you don’t know where you are going, you’re going to end up somewhere else.”  [Lewis Carroll]

God does have a PURPOSE–A PLAN for every person.  Discovering this and fulfilling it is the ESSENCE of life.  Most people I think, don’t have any purpose with their lives.  I know, because that’s…

Diet is an answer… why Eating Right encourages Healing.

Two posts in a week – I know, but this has been on my mind and something I found out yesterday has encouraged me to pre-share some thoughts with you.  (Please note this post contains affiliate links).

There’s a scripture that says “money answereth all things” (Ecclesiastes 10:19) in essence what this means is that money talks. But there’s a version of this saying that I much prefer, which says “money has an answer to all things” (CJB). Whilst money can and does talk, it is not the sole answer to all our problems.

What has this got to do with healing diets? A change in diet has helped me enormously. Last year I was suffering from what I thought was really bad anaemia, but it was actually adrenal exhaustion. I would wake up by 9am and be exhausted by 12 and need to sleep for at least an hour by 4pm. If I didn’t I would feel breathless, dizzy and faint. I tried iron supplements to no avail, before I realised that I had to drastically change my diet.

Since then there has been a 180 degree shift, I no longer feel exhausted and I don’t have to take a nap in the afternoon and I’m well on my way to having my adrenals restored to normal functioning. Continue reading Diet is an answer… why Eating Right encourages Healing.

What is Faith? And do you need more of it?

A few days ago on Facebook somebody posted this quote as their status:


It actually annoyed me because these are the type of quotes people put without sitting down to examine for themselves what faith according to scripture really means.  Most of the stuff that we Christians have accepted as truth are just things passed down from generation to generation, from one teacher to another – it’s things that have been recycled and maybe even up-cycled without looking at the components or the underlying foundations. Continue reading What is Faith? And do you need more of it?

Re-visiting the Goals of my Blog

back in timeI started this blog way back in 2011, not my idea at all. Blogging was new to me, I hardly read any to mention but I was no novice to writing and God had given me something to share.  Like most people who start blogging, I had been called to share the footprints of my testimony even before it would materialise – call it a step in faith.

So the Colonel’s intent (a phrase stolen from ‘Made to Stick’ by Chip and Dan Heath) of this blog was to share my healing journey – this was my overarching goal. Continue reading Re-visiting the Goals of my Blog


So true… make each moment count

Reflections from Beit-Shalom

You woke up this morning. All we really have is this one day. The past is over. We have no idea how much future we will have in this life.

When you woke up, you were given another 24 hours (and some of you less than that).

What will you do with these precious hours with which you have been gifted?

Remember, every word you speak just might be your last ones.

Every action you take just might be your last one.

What do you want people to remember about your last interaction with them?

Think about that.

We never know how much time we (or the people in our lives) still have.

Every interaction with another is, potentially, our last one…whether because it is our last day or it is theirs.

What do we want our last interactions with others to be?

What memories do we want to carry?

Funny…Is It?

Some thought provoking words right here

Simply Life

imagesFunny how simple it is for people to trash God, and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven, provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says.

Funny how someone can say “I believe in God,” but still follow Satan who, by the way, also “believes” in God.

Funny how we are quick to judge, but not to be judged.

Funny how you can send a thousand ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Funny how someone can be so fired…

Stream of Consciousness (Writing 101)

Monday morning 11am, kids screaming – not mine – I live opposite a nursery.  There is one child who I have come to know, her high pitched screaming is enough to send you running for cover.  And there’s the little boy who always seems to be crying, great heathing, shrieking sobs, when one starts soon there’s just the cocophony of little voices sounding not so little anymore.

And if I’d forgotten the assortment of nursery rhymes I once new, that is not the case anymore, and even some that I have never heard before.  These are the sounds that I am greeted with Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm.

I really do hate to sound moany, but it’s a lesson I guess.  I appreciate those nursery woekers in a new way, teachers often say that working in a nursery must be so easy.  Possibly if you have a real vocation in this area, but it’s definitely not for the faint hearted.  Kids need a lot of love, attention and patience – who can blame them they’re missing their mummies and daddies.

Yesterday, I was thinking about life anthems.  When you get to the end of your life what would be your life anthem?  For me there are two extremes, both songs I have sung at different occassions but one of them I’m resolving to sing more over the other.

The first anthem, which you all probably know goes like this, “nobody knows the troubles I’ve seen, nobody knows but my Saviour.”  I usually reserve this song for those days where I feel particularly miserable and sorry for myself.

The other anthem, is the one that I choose to make my life anthem, or I might find a better one, but I’ll keep this one until then.

“Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see.  All I have needed thy hands have provided, great is thy faithfulness Lord onto me.”

As you can see, two very different life anthems.  Which one best portrays your outlook on life right now?

It’s OK, if you’re honest enough to say that your life anthem isn’t as upbeat as you would like it to be, because there’s always room for change and growth.

(more crying and nursery rhymes…)

Whew, this writing your stream of conscious is harder than I thought.

This activity has taught me a lot actually, it’s taught me how random my thoughts can be and it’s also taught me why I like to reflect on what I’m thinking before putting down onto paper/screen.

Well, if you’ve managed to get anything useful or coherent at all, from out of this blog post – thank God.

I await the next challange in Writing 101.

A Magpie on Steroids

magpieThis is sometimes how I feel when I take a step back and look at myself.  I don’t get excited very easily but when I do it’s like overdrive.

I tend not to get excited about stuff, but I really do get excited about ideas and skills.  I love learning and so sometimes the internet is like a gourmet buffet of all things cerebral and practical.

Ooh… cook this recipe.

Aaah… master that grain of nugget.

Glitter, glitter, glitter.  Shine, shine, shine.

Can you relate? Continue reading A Magpie on Steroids
