Utilizing knowledge/skill in ayurvedic foods and spices, he was up and doing six laps per day (with his walker) throughout the house. He enjoyed the activity and change of environment immensely, since he had been an athlete in his youth. He enjoyed the food and ate every single morsel. He increased his body's strength, as well as strengthened his memory. With constant care, his wounds healed. It was a miraculous change in his health and overall quality of life. I loved seeing the changes in him and seeing him smile, his newfound health made him radiant!!!
