Hope and Inspiration: Part 1 - Testimonies

Essential oils have had a place in our home for quite some time.  You might be familiar with some of the basics.  Lavender next to the bed to help with sleep and in the bath for relaxation.  Peppermint for a headache and nausea, and tea tree oil to help clear the sinus gunk that comes up every winter.  Little did I know how many existed and how much they have helped people overcome some serious downfalls.  A few weeks ago a fellow GP friend (who had to share her own success) put me in touch with a woman who not only has been researching these oils and healing properties for 18 years but has found a way to put them to use specifically for gastroparesis.  So naturally my curiosity peaked and I began to give them a try with a little of my own research.

The New GP Cookbook

Back in December, during the holidays that seem so far gone already, I noticed G-Pact sharing a post about the new cookbook coming out in January written specifically for gastroparesis.  Well, this was something I definitely had to check out!  Looking it up on Amazon and not yet released I contacted Colleen Beener, a lovely lady I volunteered with at G-Pact years back when first diagnosed.  She was able to get in touch with the publisher who kindly sent me a copy to review.
