Interesting day and dumplings

I met my sister at the Chiropractor's office.

She went first and he advised her to take flax seed oil and did some adjustments.

I was given a stone to wear as my 'shields' ie. the bodies electrical field was depleted in my case.  He said it should help with my insomnia - I sure hope so - more than one consecutive night of full sleep would be a miracle.

I am hoping this will fix my feet. I am willing to try anything!

We went here afterwards:

And stopped by the deli to pick up some dumplings for lunch.

My sister enjoyed an array of shrimp and pork dumplings.

I had two pot stickers and two pork dumplings.
We stopped at Whole Foods for my sisters flax oil capsules and I picked up some selenium tablets.

I also picked up an easy dinner:

Beef stew,  tofu rice wrappers with peanut dipping sauce, kombucha, selenium and some chamomile tea.

I only ended up eating the soup. I didn't have much of an appetite tonight. 

I will save the tofu wrappers for lunch tomorrow.

I am exhausted after a long day, night all!


  1. I understood most of this blog except for the selenium. I know it's a component in CIGS solar cells but in the context where it appears here it seems like it's meant to be eaten! So I referred to "The Doctor's Complete Guide to Vitamins and Minerals" by Mary Dan Eades (c) 1994 and I learned that selenium (when taken in appropriate doses) strengthens the immune system and may be able to slow aging. Then I began to wonder: Am I getting enough selenium? So I checked the label on the Varsity Pack 1 multi-vitamin and mineral packet that I take each day (they're from Nutrition Express). It contains 100 mcg of selenium in the form of L-Selenomethionine, which the label helpfully states is 143% of my daily requirement. Whew! That's a relief.

  2. The doctor felt I was low in selenium - hence the higher dose which I will only take for a short time.

  3. oh i love dumplings and ranch 99!!

    yikes with the insomnia!
