A Chinese Trifecta

In the last fortnight or so, I've notice a a fair amount of "CHINA" in my life:

1- Compliments of a sweet friend whose initials are ECW, a Chinese feng shui master came to examine our house and to teach me about how it could be improved for optimal healing energy flow. (It's mainly good news, we just have a skylight issue in our family room.)

2- Per the advice of another friend, I am reading "The China Study", an incredibly thorough, enlightening, and sometimes scary study on nutrition. (read it and you will change how you eat-- all in the name of promoting long-term health and preventing disease).

3-Two weeks ago, we attended a lecture at Gilda's Club (named after Gilda Radnor. They call this "The club you never wanted to join") about the benefits of Chinese medicine during cancer treatment. It talked about acupuncture, chinese herbal medicine, tai chi, and loads more. We are just trying to gain a broader perspective on the many philosophies of care out there, and how they can support you during your chemo.

So much China, so little time.



  1. Shelly,

    I am really happy you are sharing your experiences here. Thank you for sharing all of this. You are amazing. Thank you for being you.


  2. Mmmmm....curry....I miss good Indian food! Hope their healing techniques are as good as their Shahi Paneer!

  3. Hey shell bell, I am thinking about you every day down here in Nashville. You can add to the list that hopefully soon I will be booking a ticket to China to go and visit my friend from school over there.

    Love reading your blog, it makes me feel in the loop on everything!

  4. And the chinese new year on the 14th! You are soooo in synch with it all. And you are KICK ASS and COUREAGOUS and INSPIRING and a ton of other things that we don't yet have words yet to describe yet...but we will.


  5. Neil told me a shuffleboard table in the basement was the only way to balance out that skylight. And a kegerator.
