Haven't Blogged for a While
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
It has been almost 2 years since I last blogged. Folks have been commenting recently on my old blogs so I thought I would stop by and leave an update. I haven't been using Spark much recently. I have switched to Face Book. FB has a rich Plant Based, No Oil Community and a few of my Illness communities that I am involved in on a daily basis.
My health has been pretty stable. I have been diagnosed with yet another autoimmune disease. This is a rare one. It is called Cryoglobulinemia. Silly name which means that my blood gels when it gets lower than 37 degrees C (body temperature). So living in Ohio is hard in the winter. It is a form of vasculitis, which causes destruction of blood vessels.
I continue to eat a healthy vegan diet, no added oils. I follow the advice of Dr. Esselstyn, McDougall and all those guys and that is what is keeping me as healthy as possible. Many of the folks who have as many autoimmune diseases as I do are much more ill than I am. Because the tendency of their bodies to get other diseases. I keep my body healthy in these other ways... with healthy food and no bad fat at all.
Blessings to all of you out there. Toni
