After my left arm was paralysed from nerve damage caused by the mastectomy, I went into over-drive on the research front on treatments and supplements that could help. Here are some I tried.
My nerve surgeon didn’t quite sneer, but he raised eloquent eyebrows and told me in his beautiful Italian accent that in his experience, the only thing that would restore nerve function in my case was surgery. I thought it was a pity that he wasn’t more open to supplements that could improve the rate of healing in his patients, but there you go.

I used to pray for strength to get through the year. And the Universe heard me and sent me challenging life experiences (like a divorce, house sale, cancer treatments, the death of two of my beloved cats) to build up my character and strength.
So this year, my prayer for myself and all of you, is to be happy and healthy. Let’s see what Mr Universe makes of that!
