Its all in the food

God has given us all we need for life and godliness.  I believe this to mean an abundant healthy life.  He created all things perfect in the beginning.  In the garden.  We had perfect communion with God, clean food, and clean water.  Everything he made was good.  We broke the one forbidden rule, not to eat the fruit that was to make us like God and it brought sin, death and disease.

We live in a toxic world as a result and there are now many things that come to pillage our otherwise healthy bodies.  Therefore,  if we choose to take responsibility for our life, we must take the steps to regain our life and take the challenge to live a life worth living.  Growing older does not have to mean getting sicker.

Without a low toxicity diet, good gut health, immune system, plenty of probiotics, lymphatic and adrenal support, our bodies can become a pillage for many harmful organisms, including parasites.

This can mean low energy, diseases, or other health issues.

Keys to improve your health are found in choices we make daily.

True Healing and Fading Begins here-Keys to my recovery

After what I went through with my nickel sized kidneys stone lodged in my lower ureter in 2012, I didn’t want to have to deal with them any longer.  So it is important that I found something that works for me.  I started using molasses instead of sugar in everything.  I then slowly added honey to my diet.  I personally do not use agave because it is too sweet and I usually add too much.  And some use stevia or xylotol.  My sugar addiction slowly faded.

Soon, my eczema gradually faded, I would experience flare ups when I went off the wagon and relapsed with my sugar.  Usually, this happened when going out to eat or tasting something I made for my husband with sugar.  I would also experience a flare up the week before and gradually fade again following the full moon.  If you don’t believe me, mark your calendar for the full moon and then journal how you feel the prior week.  Common symptoms for me has been allergy and sinus, stuffy head, fatigue as well as previous skin flare ups.

But one thing is connected to all of these things that I became aware of about 10 days into my 30 Day Faith Detox.  I had been praying for answers, healing, and for God to show me what He wanted me to do.

I was sitting in bed and about 10 o’clock this evening when out of no where the word PARASITE came to mind.

‘PARASITE!, WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?’ was my first thought, now I had gone mad.

The only answer to this thought entering into my mind that I can come up with is that it was given by God himself.  I had not given much thought to this in over 10 years.  I did work at Dr Christopher’s Herb Shop Connection in college and so I was vaguely familiar with parasite cleansing.  However, I had never entertained the thought and concluded long ago that only people in foreign 3rd world countries exposed to sewage need to take herbs for parasites.

Needless to say, I almost completely disregarded this thought.

Thankfully I pushed through, I decided to google a little bit about parasites and was surprised to find out so many of the symptoms I and my family was experiencing and so I kept researching and found evidence of links between parasites and so many common ailments.  If you don’t believe me take this challenge?  Google the word parasite and your ailements and see what comes up.

This doesn’t need to get you scared or paranoid like it did for me.  The shock and paranoia faded as I became more educated and aware of the problem and the remedies. II simply use the scary word, parasite, for myself and my kids because it motivates me to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Think about it like this.  Parasite=INFECTION=mold, fungus, yeast overgrowth, germ, bacteria, virus, worms, etc. They all infect us and live off us.  They can mostly be addressed in similar ways.  They mostly thrive on moist and warm environments with a source of food.  We have all heard of these problems, right?  Well, now take another challenge, try and google mold, yeast or virus and your common ailments.  What do you find?

Yeast and mold feed on similar environments and spread quickly meaning they co-exist nicely.  It also commonly results in more than one parasite present within a person at any given time or place. Hard to fight, parasites have existed since the beginning and they multiply quickly and adapt to survive. Parasites begin at microscopic levels and are easily undetected. If left untreated, they can spread and take over quickly.  You get the idea.

There is alot of conflicting conclusions about sugars so here is some additional reading of all good, bad and ugly regarding sugar.

One Day at a Time

We live in a culture that seeks immediate results.  We want things NOW.  We want things easy.

Well nothing is that simple.  When it comes to healing and lasting results we must take it One Day at a Time and recognize our complete need for divine intervention.

I want to simplify it for you and share some history of how I got to where I am.

I had heard about detoxing and cleansing when I worked for Dr Christopher’s herb shop connection back in college over 10 years ago.  But like so many I had never considered my need for health, I was young and healthy.

That was then.

Rewind back 9 months ago…

I knew I was not feeling well, tired all the time, and I struggled to get out of bed.  It seemed like a mild depression or lack of motivation.  Maybe I was just getting older.

I had settled for this as normal.  I couldn’t figure out why I had no energy, after all I ate a variety of good food and drank only water.

My kidneys were hurting almost constantly, reminding me of the nickel sized kidneys stone that had put me in the hospital for three days in August of 2012 and my skin eczema had reached an all time unbearable, itchy, and blistering state that kept me up most nights.  Escpecially the week leading up the the full moon.

I soon started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars.

I knew I had stumbled on something incredibly effective and dove right in.  My body was overloaded in many areas and I was desperate for lasting result.

Here is my reason’s for detoxing.

  • I knew my body must be overloaded
  • I heard about the benefits of detoxing
  • My organs were beginning to hurt for no apparent reason
  • I was tired of feeling like crap
  • The improvements I had after stopping my sugar intake and beginning my Organic Juice Cleanse greens after one week were evident

About this same time, I had checked out the book 30 Day Faith Detox By Laura Harris from the library.  This all fell into place at the right time.  I began noticing changes to my eczema and even surprised by the disappearance of the corn on my foot that I had been quite used to as the new normal.  I started using the methods in the 30 Day Faith Detox By Laura Harris which included Detoxing the Liver gently, Colon and Eating Clean.

Beginners Shopping List

Here is a list of items suggested for those just starting out or not fully SOLD OUT on the idea or those who just want to enjoy GOOD GOD FOOD and healing at the same time.

A good rule of thumb here is to find single ingredient foods with one ingredient in it.

No added ingredients, flavors, colors, preservatives etc. (So peanut butter would just have peanuts as the ONLY ingredient.  This takes a bit of getting used to but as you move along you will find products that you go to every time.

Depending on where you shop and what you buy.  Although I prefer to buy my items local, I do have to admit that I shop Costco for bulk items because I am on a budget too.

End Each Night With a Detox Bath

Our skin is the largest detox organ of our body.  Once I accepted this, I started taking detox baths every night until my skin cleared up nicely.  I simply used a recommended bath I had heard about online and added some essential oils for fragrance.

My mom has used oils for years for massage therapy, but I had just thought they were used for their scent alone.  I just hadn’t grasped the healing properties they hold until this year.

Here’s my nightly detox bath soak

  • 1/4 cup Mule Team Borax
  • 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 5 drops of essential oils (optional)

I followed my bath by drying completely and rubbing vodka and thyme and cloves essential oils on any dry spots, zits, moles, and skin tags then applying a cream I had made with ingredients from Mom’s Stuff Salve on my eczema.  I had tried it before from my mom and loved it so much that I made my own.  My homemade salve was still no match to the real time tested formula, so I ordered my own.

These are some suggestions on detoxing essential oils

More suggestions for detox baths

I live to please God alone. (Ranting on…)

RANDOM THOUGHTS

Ever wonder why we live to please those around us, when we cannot possibly know what another is thinking and needing at a given moment?  Well you are not alone.

Ever try to make the ones in your life happy or feel loved with nothing more than frustration from failure to meet their needs?

Ever look to those you love to make you feel whole, complete, or fulfilled?  It’s a losing battle my friends.

I am here to share that God alone is the answer.  I cannot make anyone happy fulfilled or complete.  I am not supposed to please anyone, make them whole, ensure they feel loved or needed.

God alone is the ONE we must seek to please.  He alone is the ONE who can make us complete, whole and fulfilled.  All other sources and outlets are vanity.  We will only frustrate ourselves and those around us to the point of exhaustion, disatisfaction ragged and raw.

We are designed codependant.  Codependant for God.  Codependant on God.

Man is in a wretched state and we must break the chains that bind us.  We must be driven to please the ONE who created us to love.  Only this kind life is pleasing to God.  Once we FULLY grasp that we cannot please God and man at the same time and BEGIN TO keep our focus on Him alone, we can fully heal from all lifes hurts.

We cannot possibly fulfill another.  We must seek God to fulfill our every breath.

God, help me to live for YOU ALONE?

God showed up in Thyme

During my journey for health I had asked my husband, who is a lead technician for a 24 hour restoration company that deals with mold, to bring me home something that I could use for the surface mold in my basement shower.  He had always bragged about the amazing, safe and natural products he used for work and I had to test it myself.

It took him a few months to finally bring me home the CHEMICAL.  I was so excited to read the ingredients.  Thymol (a component of thyme oil) and lemon.  I had to laugh.  Here, this powerful non toxic product was used by the professionals to treat child care centers, hospitals and molds and fungus.  It is a virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculocidal and even kills HIV on precleaned surfaces.  It is safe to use on food surfaces and no hazard or FDA approval on the bottle.  I used it for the mold and got some on my hands, on my eczema and it tingled and burned like mad.  A bad thing right?

I was wrong.  My eczema turned a page and began to clear up.  I was so excited. Natural, safe and effective at treating my eczema and mold.  I discovered a wonder product by accident.  Actually, God gave me this amazing dicovery because He loves us all and I had been asking for answers and healing.  I was desperate and open to whatever He would show me.

BUT WAIT… If this product “kills” eczema, than there must be a cure for it completely.  After all, this product KILLS HIV and 99.99% of germs

Must be pretty powerful stuff.  Right?  Please dilute your Thyme oil.  Only a little is needed.  After all 0.23 % of this gallon bottle was thymol.  The rest was water and scent…

I use Young Living essential oils to clean my house and bath in as well as for healing.

You can use any oils, herbs, or whatever you would like.  Just be cautious of your source.
