Back on Track

Hello Everyone

I have been absent on this blog for quite some time. Please accept my apology. Life has had quite a few twists and turns for me.

Most importantly, I am ‘back on track’…physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I’d like to get you up to date on what’s been happening in my world. I can’t do it all at once, but here is a summary below.

Let me start by saying that I have been recovering from Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) which I was diagnosed with in August 2013.

I had what the medical staff at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital described as a severe case. It is a rare condition where the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system thinking it was attacking the virus.

My nervous system shut down and I was paralysed from the neck down. This included not being able to talk, swallow, eat, drink, breathe, urinate, defecate on my own. It all had to be done through some sort of machine. This was quite scary in the beginning, confronting, challenging and an experience that I will never forget. It was a near death experience (NDE) that has changed my life in many, many ways.

The rehabilitation and recovery has been a very long, slow process. I heard it described as 1 mm/day and I think that is about right. But looking back, those millimetres add up! So with patience, determination, faith, trust, love and support, I am well and truly on the way to recovery.

There is so much that I have learned from going through GBS that I feel inspired to share with others if they are interested. I can actually say I feel blessed for going through GBS as I am now recovering and am on the other side of such a horrific experience.

In future posts, I will be sharing different things that I would like to share, including some different health tips, recipes, ideas and thoughts on what comes across my path in daily life.

I am on the road to recovery, and while I am not 100% yet, I am far from where I was in August
2013 when I was first diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome.



Raw Super Salad

There has been a huge gap in the last post on this blog until now…yes, and there are reasons for that which

I will share later. In the meantime, my daughter and I made a beautifully healthy, raw vegetarian dish

that would go well with many different things.

So colourful, yet simple and easy too!


1/2 head Cabbage
1/2 head Red Cabbage
6-8 Carrots
1 Pomegranate

Chop/slice or shred cabbage to bite size pieces, coleslaw style. Peel and grate the carrots.

Mix well so that the colours and vegetables are mixed well together. Open and tap pomegranate seeds

out with a wooden spoon into a bowl. Or check out the video below for another quick, easy,


way to do it. Then sprinkle the pomegranate seeds either on top or mix through.

This is delicious by itself, or if you prefer a dressing, here are a few alternatives:

Apple Cider Vinegar & Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Organic Mayonnaise

Creme Fraiche (or Greek Yoghurt or Sour Cream) with lemon juice and garlic finely sliced or minced

This will add even more health benefits with the lemon juice and garlic, giving the immune system a boost.


Don Tolman

Our fast-paced living is contributing to choices that are leaving us overweight, unhealthy and on a path to pain and disease.

We’ve given our power over to politicians and our health to doctors—choices that are making us more stressed and sicker than our ancestors. We’re suffering, and so are our children.

Cancer has become almost as common as The Cold. Obesity is an epidemic. Allergies are commonplace. And it’s only getting worse.

But have you ever considered why? Why are those we trust getting it so wrong, offering treatments that cause greater pain and suffering; recommending pills that do more damage than good?

What if we didn’t have to get sick, stressed and live in a state of daily overwhelm and fear? What if there was another way?

What if it was easy once you knew how?

Forward Head Posture


The most common postural distortion we experience today is Forward Head Posture (FHP).  Lifestyle factors are one of the largest causes of FHP. We are living in a forward-facing world ~ the repetitive use of computers, TV, video games, ‘smart’ phones and even backpacks contribute to this unhealthy posture.  FHP often starts in childhood and can typically begin after some type of trauma.  It is exacerbated through adulthood from poor ergonomics, repetitive computer use and looking down at mobile phones.

Initial causes include:

Sport traumas

Motor vehicle accidents

Falls from bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, and high places

The traumas may be considered minor at the time, but can cause spinal misalignments that heal improperly, setting the stage for a progressive forward head posture and poor postural health.  Chiropractic adjustments may help and correct these spinal misalignments.

Rene Cailliet, the former Director of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Director at U.S.C., has done extensive research into the area of posture and he states that “your body follows the head…your head held in a forward position can pull your entire body out of line.” Cailliet has research showing FHP can reduce a person’s lung capacity by 30%; the gastrointestinal system is affected by the upper cervical tension, especially the large intestine.

Also with FHP, the body can become rigid and stiff, and the entire ranges of motion are affected. This can also lead to decrease in endorphin production which then increases overall pain and discomfort affecting the health and mood of the person.


Imagine carrying a bowling ball around your head. That is the average weight of an adult head.  Ideally, your head should sit directly over your shoulders.   And although we take it for granted, we are constantly challenged to hold it up because of the effects of gravity.  Think of how your head drops when you are falling asleep sitting up in a chair.

With FHP, for every inch your head is forward over your shoulders, it increases the physical stress at the base of your neck and across your shoulders by 10 times.  So, if your head weighs 10 pounds, and your head is 3 inches forward, that’s 30 pounds of stress in your upper back!  The neck and shoulders have to carry this weight all day, and it is made worse by working on computers, reading for prolonged periods, playing video games, etc. The neck and upper back muscles are in a constant state of contraction.  This can result in muscle strain, aching neck pain, headaches, pinched nerves, numbness and tingling in arms and hands, low back pain, TMJ disorders, and multiple other problems.  FHP has also been shown to flatten and sometimes reverse the normal neck curve, causing spinal disc compression, which may result in spinal degeneration and other spinal damage.


If you are suffering from FHP, you should be examined by a chiropractor who can evaluate your spine to check for any misalignments which may be causing the improper posture. Other simple things that you can do to help improve are correcting the ergonomics at work, home, school or in the car ~ checking to make sure that you are sitting straight, not hunching over a computer or slouching in your car seat. When you are actually aware of the problem, it is easier to identify things that are contributing to it.
