Had a horrible night of sleep. Right hip area is still inflammed, but hurts only when I try to get out of bed. The real problem is my pulled neck.
Chiropractor: Started 8:15am. Did 20 neck stretches & wobble chair. Got my neck cracked & some of the back. Then did some slight head resistance movements & Denny Roll “cold pack” for 20-25 minutes.
Today is the 1st day of my smoothie plan, digestive enzyme, HCL & Probiotic. I’m substituting a Kiwi for my Papaya due to starch issues. It says the Cacao powder is starchy too. However, I’ve never experienced a flare-up (that I know of) with chocolate powder + it’s very low dosage compared to the rest of the smoothie.
•2 bananas, peeled (would have preferred more ripe so it’s less starchy)
•1 cup papaya, cubed (substituted Kiwi Fruit)
•1 mango, peeled and pitted
•1 tablespoon cacao powder
•3 cups Swiss chard, chopped
•1-2 small vine tomatoes
•1 small to medium-sized carrot
•3 to 4 ounces of filtered water
Lunch consisted of spinach base with Wild Alaskan salmon (can), sweet peppers, carrots, tomatoes, mayo, whole grained mustard, artichoke hearts. So far not much inflammation.
Went to a local farmer’s market at St. Catherine Episcopal church on Immokalee Rd. a few minutes from where I live. I found a USDA Organic farmer whose farm is just 5 miles away from me called Lyoni Organic Farm. The owner is Nick Batty, phone is 239-890-3605, & email is firstname.lastname@example.org
- Steamed brocolli

Evening inflammation check: Very little if any.
