My hubby has been suffering from a series of medical conditions for more than a year and a half now. The doctors have been unable to diagnosed the problem and he has been forced to self diagnosing and treating his conditions. The main problem has been swelling and inflammation in his back, legs and feet much of which has been side effects and caused by the drugs that the doctors have given him. He has become very disillusioned with the mainstream medical doctors and drug companies. At least some of the drugs that they have given him have clearly been a big part of the problem rather than a solution.
Consequently, he has been forced to turn to self diagnosis and treatment. He has been successful in treating his conditions with several different natural remedies. The problem is that there are so many out there making claims that it is difficult to sort out which ones really work for his conditions. It has been a matter of trial and error trying to figure out how to treat himself. The good news is that he has been making slow but steady progress toward getting better. More good news is that, unlike the pharmaceutical drugs, he has suffered no ill effects from the natural remedies that he has tried. The most difficult part about figuring out the natural remedies is whether they work or not and he can only try one at a time so he knows for sure which ones are helping and which ones don’t.
One of the really intriguing natural supplements that he is looking forward to trying is the cactus flower derived drink nopalea. It is a natural anti-inflammatory drink that also cleanses your body of toxins and has many proven powerful anti-oxidants.

Even though breakfast is widely considered to be the most important meal of the day, many people skip it citing lack of time. This cheesy hash brown casserole recipe is so tasty, however, you’ll be tempted to bypass your snooze button and get out of bed right away so you can start your day with a heaping helping. It can even be assembled ahead of time, so you can prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning to cook while you get ready. It’s so hearty it could be eaten on its own, but it also makes a great side dish for an omelet or French toast. Whether you make it for an everyday meal or save it for a special occasion brunch, this casserole will wake up your taste buds and help you start your day off right.
You’ll need 2 pounds of potatoes; using frozen hash brown potatoes will save you a ton of prep time, but be sure to thaw them first. In a large bowl, stir the potatoes together with ½ cup of melted butter, ½ cup of chopped onion, one can of undiluted condensed cream of chicken soup , two cups of mild shredded cheddar cheese, 1 teaspoon of salt, and a dash of pepper. In a small bowl, combine 2 cups of crushed cornflakes with an additional ¼ cup of melted butter.
Pour the potato mixture into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish then evenly distribute the cornflake mixture over the top. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and bake the casserole uncovered for one hour, until the casserole is hot and the cheese is bubbly. Remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle a little ground paprika over the top to give the dish some color and visual impact.
This cheesy hash brown casserole is a perfect meal for a holiday morning. When you have a lot of people to feed but don’t have the time or patience to prepare a big breakfast, just have one of these assembled in the fridge so you can pop it in the oven in the morning. Serve it alongside a store-bought coffee cake and a basket full of savory muffins, and you’ll impress your guests without breaking a sweat. When you review the holiday photos next year, you’ll look well-rested from your additional beauty sleep, and you’ll have fond memories of time spent with family, not toiling away in the kitchen.
My hubby has been constantly suffering from inflammation and swelling in his feet, legs and back. The problem started early last year. He began going to the doctor in March 2011 but they did nothing for him in the way of a diagnosis or treatment. The problem became so intense that he was unable to sleep most of the time and ended up with him spending four days in the hospital. The cause of the swelling and inflammation were aggravated by things that he ate, especially foods that contained a lot of salt and particularly MSG.
We have been searching for something that we can get to help him that doesn’t require doctor approval or prescription. We recently heard about a product called Nopalea that is made from the flowers of the Nopal cactus plant. It contains rare and potent antioxidants that have been scientifically proven to help the body reduce inflammation and cleanse toxins from the blood and tissues. The twelve year old company that produces it has sold over three million bottles so far and is currently offering a free bottle for the cost of $9.95 for shipping and handling. If you would like to give it a try give them a call at 1-800-203-7063.
