There are 3 photos here that tell you what "aloe Vera juice"can do for your body! Without needing medications. It's helped me but PLEASE ASK YOUR DR FIRST before stopping any medication and adding aloe Vera since it is a herb plant.
Food can heal from within. #beyourownadvocate
#askyourdr I bought the aloe Vera juice at wall Mart for only $7bucks for a GALLON size!! I drink 8 oz every morning when I wake up and I also put it into my green juice blends as well then I get to have my coffee and #pescatarian #eggwhiteomlette #breakfast after my shower. Truthfully it has helped me so much with my inflammation & pain, my skin is glowing, hairs thicker and longer, it has boosts my immune system, sleeps better (except when I move wrong and need my ice packs for my spine and shoulder) Ill drink a 8oz glass of it when I wake up in the middle of the night too. It's improved my #diabetic sugar levels in just a week, and so much more... So I wanted to #share with you! #aloeverajuice
My 17 yr old cat Bubba is dehydrated and sick for 2 days now.
He may have ate something outside like our vet said.
It's been 2 days now of him not feeling good. Not keeping down water, food and bad runs.
But he's getting better each day! THANK God I have a friend who's a veterinarian because he told me to get him some "baby water and add a capful of the non flavored Pedialyte, grab a bunch of senior cat broth packs and no sold food for 3 to 5 days until he can keep the water and the cat broth down. If he doesnt get any better in 3 days then to bring Bubba in for Blood Work. I LOVE these tips on the pics here. I hope it can help someone else if you're experiencing this issue with your cat or dog too. When I pinched his back as shown in the picture, and it did NOT spring back fast but slowly, this indicates dehydration in a cat or a dog!(this is where the Pedialyte works in the water or given with a syringe on the side of his or her mouth as shown in the picture. Also I checked his gums as well and they have a small amount of slow decoration when I press on them slightly with my hand gloves. So I bought my Bubba kitty all his stuff that the vet said and IT'S WORKING! YAY!
But I will still keep him inside and he can have the window open while he sits on his carrier and his towel at window.
He's sleeping a lot more THO. Now he's starting to drink the Pedialyte on his own now in his bowl but I think ill wait a few more days until he's fully hydrated before letting him go out or some fun and sun. He's always been a indoor and outdoor cat. Just as my other cat Smokey bear at 19yrs of age who passed from cancer. R.i.p. Smokey bear
I am happy tho that my BUBBA is getting better! Our "furbabies" are our family too, especially when they spend 17 to 19 yrs in our lives. They're famiy. He's up to date on his shots, he eats very well, he's a little overweight but always has been but my vet says, D He's also 17 now.
Senior cats go through things like this. 🕆🕆Praying for my Bubba to continue getting better. 🕆 #ilovemyfurbaby
25 yrs ago God blessed me with a BEAUTIFUL healthy daughter that brightened up my WHOLE LIFE with her love, perfect smile and all around presence! I have always nicknamed her, "My beautiful Sunshine"or "My porcelain doll!" Because when she was born she was perfect and so was her skin. No matter what kind of day I was having, her smile & laughs and her beautiful china doll face, ALWAYS just made all my "frowns turn upside down" AND THEY STILL DO TODAY!! #mybeautifuldaughter "I love you Kayla (my sunshine), further than the stars and deeper than the ocean, to the moon and back my beautiful daughter!" Please everyone if you WOULD give a "NICE, WARM & LOVING BIRTHDAY SHOT OUT" to my BEAUTIFUL 25 year old daughter Kayla. My heart is overjoyed today for sure! #happybirthdaymybeautifulgirl
🕆"HAPPY VETRANS DAY to ALL the MEN and WOMEN!"🕆
We CELEBRATE YOU!" My father served in the army.
A WW2 Vetran who alao as a African American & half Creole french, irish man who looked full African American and had it sooooo HARD durning thise yrs. BUT HE paved the way for all of us "HUMANS as he would say, WE ALL BLEED THE SAME, TO BE FREE!! He served and sacraficed for us HUMANS to be free in ALL COLORS,ethnicities, shapes & sizes Today is not about BBQS but to THANK those we lost and those who deal with disabilities day to day so that YOU and I are FREE here in the UNITED STATES!! So THANK those VETS this whole MONTH to all who serve, have served, are disabled due to serving and please also thank their families who suffered too! #thankthemvets Even tho I LOVE MY N.E. PATRIOTS & football period, I HAve ALWAYS FELT a man or woman with a "helmet defending our country" should be PAID MORE THAN a "MAN wearing a helmet on the FIELD!". #truthbetold
May God bless YOU today, tomorrow and always, MY LIFE saving Veteran 🕆 #happyvetransday
Keeping my body alkaline with alkaline foods that I have made flavorful and delicious & spicy too! Y'ALL know... "I LOVE MY FOOD SPICY!"
Did you know that hot spicy food has natural "capsaicin" in it when consumed or rubbed on you like a cream for the skin, cures arthritis and inflammation!?, (proven scientifically) I use spices a lot. I made my,.... "Alaskan pink salmon with a jalapeno sauce, fresh organic lemon juice, basil, a little Himalayan salt, black pepper, cajun spices with red pepper and also a Thai chili sauce mixed with spinach leaves served over a cup of brown rice.
(I'll probably eat 1/2 now & 1/2 later since I'm on bedrest. #portioncontrol
#disciplineiskey #healthyfood 🕆 I'm being MORE THEN PATIENT waiting on my DRs orders about my next steps and I know it's on GOD'S timing which is ALWAYS PERFECT! 🕆 So I WILL continue to do my part in eating, meditation, keeping away from inflammatory foods and drinks like alcohol,high caffeine acidic foods etc.. Google it for yourself.... And most of all Learn how to enjoy my healthy food in my flavorful way! #foodporn
BEAUTY TIME "ME DAY" My BEAUTIFUL daughter Kayla bought me this all natural "Lotus mask" with a BEAUTIFUL RED (favorite color) oil burner with a few essential aromatic natural oils. The smell is AMAZING with a Epsom salt mineral bath and a mask. This sets the calming time effect for yourself. I even did my "Auto meditation"
while sipping on lemon water as well. (Wish it was red wine but I have been on a alcohol fast since april) So today is "MY beauty day!" Us women need to learn how to STOP for a few hrs AND take time to PAMPER OURSELVES which calms the body naturally and shows love to God for giving us our perfect bodies.🕆 Show yourself love by massaging your face, your skin, your scalp, get a massage, take a epsom salt mineral bath & have some lemon water while your taking a hot mineral bath (lemons naturay detox your body), DO whatever makes YOU RELAX! "ME TIME" will recharge us women since our "day to day" 24/7 we have are always doing for "EVERYONE ELSE" before ourselves & we ALWAYS come LAST! My mom (rest her soul) use to say before her stroke & heart attack, . "I know I can't take care of anyone else if I don't take care of me first, so you Darlene make sure to have a "ME DAY" or a
FEW HOURS of "ME TIME at least once a week to recharge."
Sadly she never listened to her own advice (as most of us do) & this is WHY
I MAKE SURE TO DO MY "ME DAYS" once a week to recharge! #truthbetold
#justsomeadvice #loveyourself #focusonyourself
#recharge #fewhours #oneday #bebeautiful #begreatful #meday I think maybe I should have done this yesterday for Halloween tho since this mask makes me look like "Michael Myers" LOL. TO be HONEST though this mask FEELS so AMAZING and it is all NATURAL, NO chemicals, only the lotus flower extracts, another 2 flower extracts, hydrolyzed collagen, & aloe vera! It makes your skin feels so smooth after 30 mins of staying on your face. To be also HONEST I did a face scrub first before applying.
Just a lil beauty tip a natural scrub is important to do if you are doing a hydration mask.Then sunscreen!
STILL On bedrest WAITING for my spine surgeon clearance but that WON'T STOP ME from reminiscing & making a collage of just SOME of my few FUN "Halloween Costumes" that I've worn through the yrs that made me laugh and others too!🖒🖒 I hope everyone has a "SAFE" and "FUN" Halloween evening!" Take LOTS of pictures!!! I CAN'T WAIT to see everyone on Instagram and Facebook all dressed up!! Oh and feel free to send me all of your caramels, pink starburst and strawberry twizzlers, just sayin...!! #halloweencostumes

I had a "BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY!" My beautiful friend/neighbor Pat and her kids too, got together and made me a homemade beautiful yellow "WREATH" to hang on my door. Yellow and red is my favorite colors! 🕆
Then my daughter surprised me with a yummy cake that she made from scratch along with her yummy homemade frosting too. OMGOSH, YES I CHEATED! Lol. (But I did take a extra insulin shot for this one, lol soooo worth it!)
My beautiful DAUGHTER Kayla, my beautiful GRANDDAUGHTER Kaylee and my handsome SON IN-LAW Tom gifted me with my favorite healing oils and yummy scented wax with my favorite color a beautiful red warmer.
But the BEST GIFT of all was my granddaughter Kaylee' s homemade CARD and all of THEM just being here with me, laughing and the love.🕆
I feel so blessed by God for the love.
I haven't looked on my timeline or my Facebook yet because I gave my family and close friends my FULL attention but I'm on it today. I also appreciated and loved all my text messages, calls I received and love was so overwhelmingly given to me through hugs, calls, texts that this was a perfectly beautiful "44th" birthday, I will never forget! 🕆

I do these two AUDIO videos EVERY NIGHT before bed and also durning the DAY too
Sometimes 3 to 5 times a day if my pain level is high or I am just tensed #truth These are the 2 best videos I found on YouTube for meditation and scripture base of what God says in his scriptures for healing the body!
🕆 Best of all they BOTH ARE FREE to add to your list, which I've done for "my healing videos" while I am still on this bedrest order from 2 separate spine Drs and also the newly diagnoses of 4 masses on my ovaries. Which I will have a CAT scan soon. 🕆 GOD is healing me BUT he expects me to do my part too🕆 #joycemeyer never said that better! The meditation, "Complete body healing"
Is only 30 minutes and I'd recommend you to sit up for this one.
I seem to fall asleep about 10 to 15 mins in so I challenge you...., if you do it, let me know what you thought and if you got all the way through while laying down.? Lol.. 🕆The "Bible scripture meditation" is only about 11 mins long!
Try these for yourself! 🕆
I wanted to share these with you. I know how they have helped me feel so RELAXED and EASED MY MIND TOO!
#verypeaceful Look for them on YouTube. They have a hr long one as well for the meditation of you'd like a bit more but I can't seem to get through even 15 mins of the 30 mins meditation UNLESS I sit up. It puts me to sleep how soothing the instructions are and how soothing her voice is too. 🕆I always do the scriptural bible verse one first!
Then my complete body healing meditation last! 🕆 I hope this may help you that is reading this and know that I'd love to hear your feedbacks on them too.
God bless and Be Well🕆 #meditation
So Sadly this also applies to family, friends, co workers & neighbors too, I have found in my almost 44 yrs of life. Hearing a friend vent to me today, made me give her this advice immediately that my own parents had given to me when they were alive years ago!.. r.i.p. Dad & mom 🕆 "NO MONEY IN THE WORLD IS WORTH GIVING UP, YOUR JOY, YOUR INNER PEACE, YOUR HOPE, YOUR FAITH and YOUR LOVE!"
Best advice I can ever give my friend was this one And I wanted to share this message with you all as well.... This is what what my own father & mother taught me!🕆
ALWAYS be confident in yourself and your thought out rationale decision! Make sure you never make a emotional decision unless it is to keep you safe! Also that you MUST distance YOURSELF from ANYONE who STEALS or your "Peace, love, hope, joy and faith".... #truthbetold I am HAPPY to say I feel so much peace in my home. And that helps with my physical healing as well. I only wish this for everyone else too. Everyday is a new change, a new challenge and a new start if it is Gods will for you in your life. Allow a optimistic open mind set, speak life and your blessings, instead of your stressors!
But remember it is how YOU react to life's situations that truly matters and by no means have I been perfect but there are things I do not tolerate! #truth
Since I decided to distance myself from certian people in my life that were draining me of my good energy, I have had lots of peace, joy, hope, faith and love, each day.I am feeling so much better!
So declutter negative energy around you, it is not just things we can get attached too but their are people who we also can attach too that will daily drain you of your good energy only because of their entitlement attitude! You have ONE LIFE to live, learn and grow. Be careful who you invest your time with!! Again, even if it's from family, friends, associates, co workers and even neighbors!! #thinkaboutit
IF You REALLY don't know what, "Highly oxygenated REAL Alkaline REAL FOOD" can do for you and your body, ..... NOW YOU KNOW! #beyourownadvocate
Research it YOURSELF!..... Especially if YOU know someone who has diabetes, pain, cancer, blood pressure issues, migraines, sleep issues, inflammation etc... SHARE ON...PLEASE! 🕆🕆 This is why I eat the way I do and I avoid medication as much as possible to heal my body and it " IT IS WORKING!" Even on bedrest I lost over 15lbs now. ON BEDREST?
Remember weight issues is 80% fork and 20% exercise. You can't go workout for 3 hrs and then order a number 7 at a fast food place, oh and a diet coke. Lol... IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!
It doesn't take one serving of "REAL FOOD" or one day or even one week.
Scientist say it takes "21 days (3 wks)"
To FORM or BREAK a HABIT!! How long do you think healthy eating takes to heal your body my beautiful smart family & friends? #thinkaboutit
This is my snack bowl daily. Now you know but most importantly NOW IT IS YOUR CHOICE to build YOUR snack bowl too.
Your welcome. Happy to share with YOU! ~Much love Darlene (Dee) XOXOX #loveyourself
Made myself some No-yolks, with a fresh tomato basil sauce with egg whites, fresh garlic and a pesto sauce with no cheese, fresh herbs to top it off. So delicious and flavorful.
Still on the "pescatarian diet" and I feel great with all that I'm going through.. Eating for health can also taste so delicious.
God can heal you BUT YOU also have to do our part 100%! #deliciousness
BEING OPTIMISTIC, This morning!
its results day on my mammogram & ultra sound results! I am so thankful that my wonderful dear friend Billy blast will be there with me so I'm not alone. 🕆 #sograteful #billyblast I tossed and turned all night trying not to worry and didn't sleep well, but I give whatever the results are for the breast cysts and the left ovary mass amd i put it into God's hands. #godhasme
I am praying for negative results on both screenings and that this will be the 17th yr cancer free!! #amen
PLEASE say a prayer for me my beautiful family and friends.🕆 Thank you so much and please GO GET your breast mammogram screenings (men &women) and do your PAPS ladies every yr especially if cancer runs in your family or you yourself also had cancer like I did in 98-2000.
Be well and be YOUR OWN ADVOCATE! Xoxox 🕆 #cancerresults
I am STILL keeping myself on my "pescatarian diet" meaning no meat, no dairy including egg yolks & cheese but YES to certain fish(no soy), egg whites, beans, brown rice, wheat tortillas, no yolks for pasta, all vegetables and all fruit as well but in moderation. I made one of my favorites today.... My "Spicy Thai Albacore Tuna" with pickled jalapeno peppers, Thai chili sauce, fresh organic lemon juice with a little bit of shaved lemon rind with onion & garlic powder, black pepper and a dash of Himalayan mineral salt since the tuna was washed very well!! #sogood
Now you can top the spicy tuna mix on vegetarian tostadas or you can chop all the tostadas and mix the tuna all together as well!! Keep it healthy and very tasty. (Remember to check for soy and do not buy it if there is any soy in your tuna or any fish at all) #pescatariandiet
🕆Yesterday was a long day for me!
I did a 2 FOR 1 on my 2 hr appointment for my mammogram w/ultrasound and my left ovary check w/ultrasound as well. 17 yrs ago I had Cancer and I went through 2 yrs of treatments, chemo pills, shots to shrink tumors, radiation and LOTS of pain at the age of 26.🕆
After a biopsy of my cervix & mass the cancer spread within just 2 weeks and I had a partial hysterectomy but they did save my ovaries which are so important for us woman's hormones and good heart health!🕆 Yesterday I got dropped off but I was alone in the waiting room for the next step. This was my first yr alone & it was hard but I met a very nice couple. I assumed she was also there for her mammogram BUT I was told No it was for her husband. He had stage 2 breast Cancer and it woke my up to share this with all of you. BREAST CANCER IS NOT JUST FOR WOMEN!! MEN CAN ALSO can get BREAST CANCER AS WELL.
🕆Please check your "CHEST" men for any lumps/pain or even if you have no pain says and check your "Tattas" my beautiful women
You can do this by putting your arm up over your head and then go around in a circle motion with your fingers starting at the nipple and working your way to the outter chest or breast, in the shower daily is the best way to do this!! You never know what you could find, woman or MAN my family and friends and again you may have no pain so don't wait and think your fine. Eliminate the maybes! #breatcancerawareness
Felt like cooking one of my favorites!
A #pescatarian diet isn't boring at all if you know how to "SEASON UP" your food the right way! When I'm better then I'll go have a steak again but while I am in pain and on bedrest, a pescatarian diet is what's best for me.
You only have one body and it is up to you to educate yourself of what you fuel it with! This is my "Spicy fish curry bowl" (which red peppers have capsaicin in them that takes away pain and inflammation)
I topped my fish curry with some extra Thai red curry sauce, bay leaves, tumeric, curry powder, fish sauce, coconut sugar, added coconut milk and a lot of my other seasonings, plus lots of yummy veggies too. So #delicious
And if you look at the small print on the fish bag then you see the ingredients is just, "fish and salt" NO SOY! 🛇
CHECK YOUR FISH, frozen or canned! Even your tuna fish cans may have soy in the ingredients too. CHECK THEM ingredients labels
Soy fillers is very bad for all of Us not just women but men and our children too! Causes obesity, all cancers, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and so many more issues. Not soy sauce which is from the veggie. It's the fillers soy we gotta watch out for in our fish, tuna, salmon, food, seasonings, etc.. #checkyourfoodlabels
I pray that ALL my family and friends are making today amazingly great no matter what's happening! Good Vibes, Good thoughts and great inner strength only plus prayer helps! 🕆 #newday
