Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day to each and every one of my treasured readers.  Wishing everyone a day filled with smiles, laughter and love.

Valentine’s Day can be more than being concerned about what type of chocolate you get, how many flowers you receive or how expensive your jewelry is.

It does not take money to share this holiday.

* Show your love by helping out the less fortunate by volunteering services at your local food bank, visiting retirement communities and sharing a cup of coffee or tea with residents, clear out your closets and donate your unused clothing.

Take a walk along a beach and appreciate the beauty.

Explore a new area. Share your experience.

Do these ventures as either a couple or single. Everyone welcomes a smile and friendly helping attitude.

Think outside of yourself this holiday and relish the outcome.

You can also share love by playing some romantic songs. That is sure to bring smiles and sooth souls.

Treat yourself or surprise someone special today.

Enjoy!

Milk and Honey

Two Natural Ways to Lessen Joint Pain

Hi everyone. Natural remedies are the way to go for handling a variety of health ailments, including lowering the level of arthritis pain and inflammation throughout our body. Here’s some tried-and-tested information about two natural ways to lessen joint pain:

1 – Milk and honey. Arthritis patients may take daily (morning and night) one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured or symptoms lessened.

In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and one-half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain.

Within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis issues started walking without pain.

Try this holistic tkr pain relief method, you may like it!

2 – Turmeric. This wondrous spice has numerous health benefits, least of which is reducing inflammation. For more insight into this marvelous natural remedy, click on this link to read more: https://lyfebotanicals.com/health/turmeric-benefits/

Happy Holidays and Personal Reflections..

Happy holidays! Wishing all my readers a wonderful, joyous holiday season! For all those who have shared their tkr experiences, thank you. For all those stopping by to receive support and information, thank you. This site would not exist and be as successful as it is without each and every one of you.

Personal reflections involving three main components (movies, music and food) of the holiday season:

It is such a blast to watch the holiday classic movies including the original (black and white) ‘Miracle on 34th Street’, ‘Holiday Inn’, ‘Frosty the Snowman’ (with Jimmy Durante narrating) and ‘White Christmas’.

I cannot remember the name of another holiday classic, but it is a Dragnet episode involving the theft of Baby Jesus that signifies the magical quality of this season. The episode usually plays on Christmas Eve. It is just great to watch. 🙂

Another one of my personal favorites is ‘Going My Way’ starring Bing Crosby. The message is powerful and the music is outstanding.

And…what would the season be without the Grinch? The traditional, animated version is wonderful, but the movie version is also available. The choice is yours. Or, why not watch them both?

The beginning of the holiday season, in my opinion, is the showing of “It’s A Wonderful Life”. There is something in that movie for everyone. Whatever is occurring in one’s everyday life, at some point, is in this movie. I just love it. Plus, Jimmy Stewart is an all-time favorite.

And…let’s not forget ‘Christmas Story’. “You’re gonna shoot your eye out, kid.” The leg lamp, Christmas dinner at the Chinese restaurant, Bumpus Hounds, double dog dares, and others are timeless. I particularly like the double dare involving the kid sticking his tongue onto a frozen lamp post. When his tongue got stuck, his friend says…”It really works.” Gets me every time.

The music is another blessing. Tunes such as ‘It Came Upon a Midnight Clear’, ‘First Noel’, ‘Halleluiah’ and ‘Silent Night’ never get old. Personally, I prefer classic versions and not that electronic stuff that some bands make money off of..(name unmentioned).

If you are like me, you never get tired of hearing Bing Crosby sing ‘White Christmas’ or another Irving Berlin song titled ‘Count Your Blessings’. Wonderful way to celebrate happy holidays!….

It’s a blast to entertain at holiday festivities. It never gets old playing my flute, seeing smiling faces and sharing others’ personal reflections. The flute is so perfect for a wide variety of spiritual-related compositions. It even sounds good playing Jingle Bells. Nice..

Let’s not forget the food and beverages. It’s the only time gingerbread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie spices, yams, eggnog, sweet potatoes, turkey gravy, cranberries and ambrosia salad appear on the dinner plate.

I don’t know about you, but this is the only time of the year I consume spiced wine, eggnog, gravy and dressing. Happy holidays!

Side note: I served up gravy at a local holiday meal fest and was taken aback by the amount of people who did not want gravy on their mashed potatoes…what is up with that?

Me…I cover mashed potatoes, turkey and dressing with the luscious liquid. In fact, I make a volcano out of my potatoes and let the gravy overflow begin. It never occurred to me that others would not.

And, for those new to the tkr (total knee replacement) world, it does get better. Honest. Keep on doing your exercises and realize that all the pain and discomfort will result in a more pain-free living.

Once again…Happy Holidays! Remember not to overdo it and place your health above all else. Moderation is the key to success in all areas.

If traveling, be safe and patient.

Benefits of Having a Health Coach after TKR

Hi everyone. Many of you have contacted me asking me for professional, medical advice. As I state throughout my site/blog, I only share personal experiences. I do, however, know of professionals who can help you. Learn more about the benefits of having a health coach after tkr by reading below:

NOTE: For transparency purposes, I am an affiliate for this reputable health coaching site known as by The Knee Replacement Therapists. Simply mention “booktoots” when contacting them. Thanks!

The average knee replacement lasts approximately 20-25 years. Meanwhile, a typical course of physical therapy after surgery lasts a number of weeks to a couple months. It’s imperative that after you’ve been discharged from physical therapy you take steps to optimize your health, physical fitness, and well being.

Health coaching (virtual or in-person) is tremendously beneficial following knee replacement surgery. Here are some of the top benefits.

1. Receive Individualized Guidance

Your knee replacement journey is unique from all the others. Your coach focuses on your specific needs and goals to help you create a plan that is realistic for you. Your coach customizes a plan for achieving your goals by taking a holistic big-picture view of your health.

2. Someone Supportive in Your Corner

Your health coach is a friend who is in your corner and focused on your success. This means having someone who can relate to what your going through. It also means someone who will listen to you and help you feel heard.

Your coach is also a source of knowledge and expertise. He or she helps answer your questions and addresses any concerns. He/she can be a source of emotional and psychological support, too.

3. Identify and Overcome Obstacles

Your health coach will help you create an actionable plan to achieve your health goals. However, obstacles will surely arise. Your coach will help you push through blocks and overcome these obstacles.

Your coach can use their expertise to address confusions, questions, or concerns. He or she can help you problem solve and be creative while finding solutions to any problems that arise.

4. Personal Empowerment

Your health coach will empower you to take an active role in your health and well being. Although your coach can help you create goals and a plan to achieve those goals, you have full control over your success and achievement.

It is vital to work with your coach to build self-efficacy. The ultimate motivation to live a healthy life comes from you. Your health coach can be the catalyst needed for this change or provide the inspiration you need to continue on your journey.

5. Lifetime Benefits

The benefits of a health coach last long after the program is completed. You’ll be able to effectively implement lifestyle changes, but more importantly, you’ll learn strategies and tactics to make these changes last.

You will learn how to help yourself and realize the lasting benefits of a healthy lifestyle and personal wellbeing. In turn, you will realize your true potential and maximize the longevity of not only your knee replacement, but your whole body.

With modern technology, it’s now easier than ever to receive health coaching services. The Knee Replacement Therapists will soon be launching their own virtual health coaching specifically for individuals following knee replacement surgery.

This will include 12-weeks of virtual health coaching all provided 1-on-1 by a knowledgeable physical therapist.

If you are interested in having a virtual health coach or would like to learn more, please send the knee replacement therapists a personal message via our contact page, and a physical therapist will be in contact with you very soon!

NOTE: When contacting them, remember to mention that “booktoots” sent you. 🙂 Thanks!
