In the middle of the night last night I found this email (okay, I know I should have been sleeping…) from Dr Mark Hyman (of  The Blood Sugar Solution) that spoke of “The Daniel Plan, a groundbreaking healthy lifestyle program started by Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church in Southern California that focuses on these five essentials: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, and FriendsI had an a-HA go off immediately.  “That’s my path!”  I thought.  “That’s how I am going to heal!!”  Faith (I have started going back to the Center for Spiritual Living) and Food (I have been focusing on fresh, whole, organic, alkaline, local produce and NO SUGAR) and Fitness (I will start doing  yoga with Journey to Be Free Naturally and Rebounding with them and The Functional Movement Center and Focus (I am getting back to writing and I want to support the Journey folks in whatever way I can) and Friends.  I am dropping my hermit ways of the last three years and getting back out into the world – goosed by my doctor BL and my friends.

P.S.  I have decided… my doctor BL and his partner CK and the folks associated with their practice are so wonderful, I don’t want to be stingy about them, so I will spell them out and link them:  Dr. Brian Lewis Dr Chad Krisel, Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville.
