Sounds like you're on the right track! I have started drinking a chia drink in the morning .... The chia seeds are FULL of nutrition, filling & energizing, and many use this for weight loss. Even sweetened with sugar or honey it still might be a good substitute for the soda.
Turmeric is the #1 natural remedy for lymes disease. It is anitinflamatory, antibiotic & releases depression as well. turmericforhealth.com has a wealth of information on the many things this amazing herb can heal.

I live in an area where there is a very dry season and a wet season and have learned what works in each. An e-booklet was given to me by the American author who lives in Nicaragua. The booklet shows in detail how to plant a Milpa garden. Essentially you build long wide rows in which the ditch in between is blocked on either end to retain any moisture. At least 6 inches of mulch is placed on top of the rows and is never tilled under. You can place starts by separating the mulch & you can separate a tiny row to put seeds directly in the dirt.
We go from Nov. to May without rain, and using this system I had my summer garden using very little water.

I live in Costa Rica on the Pacific side. A friend of mine has a howler monkey rescue center in Nosara. The monkeys are brought to her from all over the country....most commonly an orphan whose mother has been bar b cued on electric wires. The monkeys are raised and those that are able are released back into the wild. The release ranch in Norsara is over populated now & we have talked about building a new release center here on my ranch up in the mountains above Nosara. They would have access to over 1500 hectares (1 hectare=2.46 acres) of forested land.
What I am wondering is if you have any connections with people who would be willing to donate to build the holding pen here. The monkeys are kept in a very large cage with individual sleeping platforms for 45 days and fed (as always) only what they will be grazing on in the wild. then the door is opened and they are fed until they venture off.
Donations could be made directly to the sanctuary so as to be certain where the money is going.
If you have ANY ideas that could help me with this I would be most grateful
Pura Vida, Nancy
Are you taking turmeric for your lymes disease? I have a friend with lymes and she is doing quite well by taking turmeric every day. For repellant you can add garlic to your diet and it will help. If you are not taking turmeric I would suggest you begin NOW. It is an antibiotic, anitinflamatory and antidepressant ... If you can get fresh roots that is great....you can even grow them yourself...in a pot if need be. Powder is great too and is 2000x's more potent if taken with black pepper. The root makes a very tasty tea....slice or grate 3 or 4 finger pieces & boil in 3 cups of water. Let sit a bit & drink several times a day 1/2 cup ( keeps in the fridge)..... You can grate it on food or mix in a smoothie.
Great web site for more info. turmericforhealth.com
I would love to know how things progress! You are amazing for taking so much care with your cow!
It might be easier to email me directly....... firstname.lastname@example.org 🍀🍀🍀🍀 🐄🐄🐄 🐄🐑🐑🐑🐑 What color is the cow? It's not common to give cows & pigs & horses names here.....but I do & they all respond to their names....just keep talking to her when you are in her space & she'll come around quickly...
I take ticks off every day! Turmeric is a wonderful anitinflamatory, antibiotic and antidepressant...... I drink turmeric tea almost every day or grate it in food or smoothie. (I take it for the anitinflamatory aspect but gain the other benefits) If you can get fresh roots is best, but powdered is good too. The powdered is 2000x's more powerful if taken with black pepper.
I have a friend who suffered from limes disease (evidently it's a lifelong thing) and she takes turmeric every day now.
I'd suggest that you keep turmeric handy & enjoy your walks in the woods!!!
Turmeric....I see someone else suggested it......I grow it and give it away to anyone with pains.....It is an amazing root. It is anitinflamatory, antibiotic and anti depression.....If you can get fresh root and grate into a smoothie, all your food or cut thin slices or grate it & boil it for 5 or 10 min. It makes a tasty tea.....
I have many plates & screws in my body that cause pain at night so I drink the tea for that. A friend was depressed for some time & didn't want to take pharmacy drugs so I gave him turmeric & he made tea every few days (it keeps for a few days or you can keep some in the fridge) and when I saw him a few weeks later he Was smiling again! Powdered turmeric is great as well....with the powdered it will be 2000 X's more effective if taken with black pepper.

I keep a pot of fresh papaya leaf tea on the counter in the kitchen. When neighbors drop by & are sick with a bit of "gripe" they ask for the tea.....it doesn't taste very good but is worth it.Papaya leaf tea raises the blood platelets so it is efficient for combating a variety of illnesses....Here in Costa Rica we also deal with mosquito transmitted desises. The papaya leaf has been scientifically proven to fight off dengue fever or cure it...and are currently trying to make a vaccine from it. I personally feel that the medicines are best in their natural form. If one does not have access to fresh papaya a dried tea works as well.
I am lucky to live in a natural pharmacy and learn from the people living here about all the different remedies we have here.
No, your chicken doesn't need a rooster......is she sitting on eggs? If not, you can take some fertilized eggs from another chicken and put them under her. Mark the eggs with a perminant marker so you know which ones they are and if she is laying more eggs you will know the difference.
You can feed a piglet powdered calf milk ... Mix it a little watered down ... And feed him with a regular human baby bottle. If you don't feed him chances are that the others will push him off the teats each feeding time and he won't make it. Good luck!
Turmeric is a powerful anitinflamatory, antibiotic & antidepressant.....and combined with ginger even more so. If you can get the fresh roots is best, but if not the powder is great too (powder mixed with black pepper is 2000 X's more powerful. I grow it and use it and give it away to anyone who needs it. Turmericforhealth.com Has more information plus sites where you can order organic powder from.
Hi Susan....I'm glad you liked the idea of a goat....that's wonderful if she is pregnant! A little one will be delightful and goat's milk is so healthy! A metal post (there is a thin kind with a point on the end)would work I think....then it would be easy to move her around.. Hope it works! 🐑🐑🐑🐂🐂🐂🌻🌺🌴🍀🍀🍀
I would suggest a small goat for your cow.....You can easily stake it out in an area with not too long of a rope (or chain) and the cow can get to know her (better a female goat.....males tend to smell bad when they get older) in her own time and on her own terms. Eventually (assuming it works) you can let the goat free and they can hang out together.
