These granola bars are the easiest way to get breakfast sorted. And can be added to a school lunch box as a healthy treat. They are easy to make and store well.
My first choice when it comes to having my joints dealt with is an osteopath. However, mine has moved to Johannesburg. Whereas I love my chiropractor, I am not a fan of spending R500 for a treatment that involves very little massage. A friend of mine recommended her physiotherapist. She told me that he massaged her as well as manipulated the joints. When my toe was proving to be beyond painful I went to see him. I told him how the chiropractor adjusts the joint in my foot but he assured me that it was arthritis. And that there was next to nothing I could do about it. I started off by taking a supplement to ease the pain. And when that did not work I bought some collagen. They say it takes 90 days to see any effect and so I was being very patient.

But my patience wore out just before our trip overseas. I was uncomfortable and just could not imagine walking for hours every day. And so I relented and made an appointment, knowing the treatment would last all of 15 minutes, including chat time. He manipulated my foot, dealt with my dodgy hip, spine and neck and I was good to go. And I mean good to go. The pain was instantly gone and I was shown what to do if it came back. I so regret not going to him last year November as I spent 5 months suffering for no reason at all. This is the second misdiagnosis I have had. And both have been resolved by a chiropractor. I think the lesson has now been learnt. Do you see a joint specialist, and if so, what kind?
