The cheapest, easiest cure—try it!

Could it be that the cures that work best are the simplest and cheapest? This is definitely true when it comes to water. Talk to almost anyone, and they will say they are not drinking enough. I have heard Dr. Sheehan say that 80% of the low back pain cases he sees in the office are dehydrated, and drinking water will help reduce the pain. EIGHTY PERCENT!! Dr. Sheehan said of another patient, what tipped him off that he was dehydrated, was that his body and muscle aches increased. Other symptoms of chronic dehydration include blood pressure disturbances, headaches, tiredness, allergies, digestive problems, depression, irritability, and brain fog. Any of these sound familiar?

There is an easy fix to this…just drink more water! Ask either me or Dr. Sheehan to test how much water you should be drinking a day. And then try it for two weeks…that will give your body enough time to normalize and handle the symptoms. It’s worth a shot, right? I can’t think of an easier or cheaper way to fix a health problem. So try it!


Unfortunately, I have still been slacking on my diet log. I am continuing to avoid sugar and fruit, and bread 95% of the time. And I try to eat vegetables three times per day, and in between meals I snack on nuts. To make up for my lack of diet log, here is what I had for breakfast:

Sausage and veggie frittata (using leftovers)

4 chicken sausages, cooked and sliced

1/2 onion

8 mushrooms

2 handfuls baby spinach

5 eggs, whisked

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a cast-iron skillet, saute the onion and mushroom in olive oil or butter until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the chicken sausage and heat. Add the eggs and mix well.

Let it cook over medium-low heat for a few minutes until the outside of the frittata starts to firm up. Then transfer to the oven and bake 10-15 minutes until the frittata is firm all the way through. Enjoy!
