This section will cover areas for people with special dietary needs also a range of health and nutrition needs. If you have an ailment you would like covered, let me know. I still need books and materials on these ailments. Go to Support the Inn for more details.

Do not use any of the information here as a replacement for your doctor's advice. I myself cannot stand doctors or hospitals, but they have a place in life just as food does. If I hadn't gone to the doctor when I first became ill, I would not be here today.

Now remember, Diabetic Recipes are generally considered a Low-Fat, Low-Cal and Low-Cholesterol Diet. Check the Diabetic section along with the Veggie section for recipes. Also, you can alter a regular recipe to be Low-Fat, Low-Cal or Low Cholesterol. Reducing or removing fat and salt or subsituting lite cheese, dressing, and milk will reduce the fat and calories in any recipe. As I have stressed experiment on your own, there are books you can read that deal with these diets. The books will help you to better understand how you can make simple changes to live a happy and healthier life.

Something that will help everyone is to limit the intake of white breads and things that have high fructose corn syrup in them. Removing these from our diets, has helped us and others. If you can't remove them from your diet, limit the use of these products.

I thought I would pass on a warning to those who have sugar problems. This new splenda that everyone is now using, it is more sweet than regular sugar. I had a diet soft drink that had this splenda in it, this drink about knocked me on my butt. I got the shakes, a cold sweet and I felt like passing out. I had to eat some food to help counter the effect the pop gave me. Be careful with these new additives, as always they say things are good for you, but it's usually the opposite. Before buying a case of any new formulated drink, try just one to make sure you have no ill effects from it. I tried another diet drink from another company with no problems. I can't say which companies, all that legal crap. Be careful.

Get out there and walk in the mornings and or evenings. Walking is generally the least impact that you can do and it's benifits are great. If you can't walk by yourself, see if someone can walk with you. Many places now have volunteers who are waiting to walk with you. Or, maybe you can go out and meet your neighbors. Do not rely on your family for help, you will discover that they cannot be there when you need them. This is where you need to take the chance and get to know those who are around you. I know first hand how hard it is to trust people, but sometimes you have to in order to continue or to start to lead a healthy and free life. A church might also be a good place to look for help, the bigger the church, the better your chances are that someone can assist you. Be careful with anything that you do.
