We are working on setting up some good files for our health records over on the Legacies of Grace program.

Why is this important?  Well, good detailed records can save you so much time and confusion when dealing with illness or injuries.  We have so many things to remember these days and our brains can quickly get overwhelmed.  In addition to that, think about how important accurate information can be in deciding what needs to happen next or decoding why things are happening as they are.

If you should need to call upon outside practitioners for help, your records will be an absolute goldmine of help for them!

Have you ever wondered what time it was when you last took your herb tincture during the flu?  It gets hard to keep up with whether you are the sickie or the caregiver.  Naps, meals, losing meals due to vomiting or diarrhea can all effect when your next dose is due.  Fevers can be very telling of what is going on once you learn how to read them.  But how do you read them unless they are recorded?  Baths infused with certain herbs can be very effective treatments but it is necessary to stay in the water and the water to be of a certain temperature range in order for them to be effective, writing this information down can be so simple yet helpful.

Hopefully you are getting the idea of what I am trying to share.  No matter what level of caregiving you will work at, these records are worth the trouble to keep.  I hope you will take a close look at our work over at the Legacies page and consider joining us in our work there – if you are responsible for your own health or that of your family members, I think you will find it helpful.

Remember also, if you care to proceed in your health and wellbeing at a level that may require personal consultations, I have many options to assist you.  Here’s to your good health in the New Year!
