Hi, I would like to introduce myself and to tell you a bit about me. My name is Linda Frankson born and razed in Canada, I was the second oldest of-of 6 siblings of Canadian decent. My learning curve in an alternative holistic venture started way back in the early 1980's. At the time I was living in Costa Rica Central America. Where I met a Latin American of Costa Rica and moved to San Jose Costa Rica, in 1973 we were married.My youngest sibling came to Costa Rica in 1975 to finish his education and move on to a higher level, as it was a much easier highway to follow. Between 1975 and 1980 there were ups and downs in his Education but in the early 1980's he met a very prominent Acupuncturist and became very interest in the art of Aquaculture. This professional took him under his wing, he became his prodigy. Thought out his learning period I became very involved and learned much. I didn't learn the art of acupuncture but became very good at finger-puncture which uses the same meridian points instead of needles. We all go through learning curves that are to do with life's experiences, these are tools that we learn how to cope with things around us but we also learn skills that we can share with others.For 10 years I was able to help people Spiritually, as I have always been very close to the Spirit all my life. Though my own trails and tribulations I found and I was better able to implement into my life to find balance and help others do also. Which I found was very fulfilling for me.When I moved back to Canada I found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) with the use of taping on the same meridians as Acupuncture. Then later on in life, I found Kinesiology commonalty known as muscle testing. Through understanding the body and the marvelous wonders of how the body has the capacity of healing itself far beyond that of Western Medicine.The holistic approach is not evasive nor addictive. Though all my many years and as a housewife, mother, hairdresser by trade, getting divorced remarrying and becoming a widow. Then moving back to Canada and becoming a mother again to my grandson because my daughter is mentally handy capped from birth and also through her pregnancy acquired Type 2 diabetes, this put me on the road to finding holistic alternatives, to help her. In doing so... I found much much more than that.Now I find myself in a cross road. All my life I have been helping people Spiritually, mentally and physically, so what if I could put all this experience into action and helping people. Not just on a one on one basis but throughout the Internet.
All natural health remedies for my ongoing search to bring Jessy, Melissa and myself into a common denominator to heal us from this crippled world we live in. There’s always a better way as mother nature intended.
Ok, I have been stumbling around trying to move back into Jessy’s story, there is so much to cover and I feel that I will not make it into the next page but I am going to try.
At the time of his accident, I had no idea that down the road I was going to have so many trials. His little head was split from the center of his eyes in a horseshoe like manner to his right ear. There was no other way to stop the bleeding to save his life. I am forever eternally grateful for those that stepped in and helped save his life.
There is “always a better way” and I have always tried to find and follow up with finding a better way. I have talked about my daughter Melissa and her type 2 Diabetes and wrote a bit about Jessy, my grandson. I wish there was an easier way to explain my own personal findings. “But there isn’t!” I am going through a cycle of giving up my cause and retreating back into my wee small world.
Today I have a newly renewed vigor to keep going. I had a very sinking feeling this weekend about how I was going to keep going with all the stress of everyday living. And especially that I am out of work at this time and I am living on credit!
You see this is not about me, it’s about three dependents that I have, all with diverse health problems. There is so much out here on the subject of Health and health care but for me, I need to find the common denominator that will target “all of us”. That seems to be a task that I would not be able to accomplish. Or so it “!seems!”
In my search for helping Melissa, I have come across many sites that are working on weight loss, number one industry on the market today. There is always someone coming up with a better way. The most recent are the Smoothies. There are literately hundreds of smoothie recipes on the market. I have tried many forms of weight loss imaginable with limited results.
1. I am working with a learning disability.
2. Dieting doesn’t work because of disorder in her eating habits
3. Dietary supplements worked for a short time then stopped working
4. Protein shakes didn’t work.
5. Smoothies were working to a degree but not on the scale that was needed.
I have walked you through a few of my concerns an understanding of the dilemma we are facing in our society in the Medical world. This is not a scientific study and I am not a professional in the world of science. These are personal observations and my own conclusions, and understandings. How I came across them in everyday life and how I have used them in my own world. They are not to be taken as a total truth as there is ‘always a better way; in that anything that I have written in this post, or posts. It is my hope the given information and personal histories, will be of help to those that are searching for understanding in their way… finding a better way. In that manner, I am honored to be of service.
The early years when Meli arrived in Canada, were the hardest. For most people making a trip to another country would be an adventure, but for Meli. It wasn’t, she left behind everything that was familiar to her childhood. Where people knew her, all her life a culture, that permitted her to be linguistically independent in her Latino Culture. Meli is very sociable, loves meeting other people, to come to Canada, with no understanding of English. Extremely frustrating for Meli, to effect her emotionally, and greatly exaggerate her health conditions to the point of acting out in rages. At first, it wasn’t so bad everything being so new. But that was short lived.
There are a few things that I’ll go over before we get into Melissa’s journey again and how I have come down this road of learning to then finally being able to share this with others. You could say it’s the placebo effect to pacify a nation and accept pharmaceutical solutions. It has been you could say, a very long road. Firstly, it was not an all at one-time endeavor, as life is a continuous experience in learning different precepts to guide us along this road, at different points in time. Usually, they arrive, when we are most perceptive to them. I have said it before and I will repeat it again. We are not all made of the from the same cloth. Out ward-lee yes, because we have a body of flesh and bone and skin to cover us, and that is the physical self.
