Translate Symptoms into Healing-Step by Step of my journey- Updated 1/5/19

START YOUR OWN JOURNEY BY FINDING OUT WHAT YOUR BODY IS STRUGGLING IN… I HAVE NOW INCLUDED EASY TO FOLLOW LINKS FOR ALL THE REMEDIES THAT I USED ON MY JOURNEY.

TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO FILL OUT MY HEALTH EVALUATION

Prevent and heal from disease by tackling what many believe to be the starting point of issues in the body, THE BOWELS, or a big part of the IMMUNE SYSTEM.  It’s all in the gut.  If you have ever taken a round of antibiotics (see number 8), been vaccinated, ate Genetically Modified Foods (GMO-corn, soy and more), ate wheat products (high rate of spray with glyphosate-Monsanto’s Roundup), walked barefoot, traveled into other countries, or drink Tap water then you may have trouble in your gut, a compromised immune system, or organs that are working hard to keep you going day to day.  You may feel tired, overwhelmed, overweight, sick often, or feel like you just cannot maintain your stamina.  You may not struggle all the time but seasonal allergies, food allergies, have pain or inflammation, or like me, dry, cracked and bleeding skin and eczema.

What is your symptoms?

Here is my basic healing grocery list

KEYS TO MY SUCCESSFUL JOURNEY (GOD, CLEAN WATER, CLEAN DIET, DETOX, GUT HEALING, DETOX BATHS, SKIN SCRUBS, SKIN PROTECTION, GOOD SUPPORT)

  1. ***PRAYER and MEDITATION (however this looks for you~For me its prayer to the God of the BIBLE) putting God first in my life and living in awareness of His ever presence in my life. (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  2. ***Eliminating PROCESSED SUGAR (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  3. ***Avoiding GMO FOODS, TOXINSCLEAN WATER and EATING CLEAN
  4. ***GUT HEALING and BONE BROTH (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  5. ***PROBIOTICS and FERMENTS (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  6. ***DAILY DETOX BATHS (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  7. ***CINNAMON AND CAYENNE SCRUBS
  8. PARASITE CLEANSING  (NOT SAFE WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING) (For Skin and Kidney Stones)
  9. ***PINE SALVE
  10. ***SUPPORT from friends or others who understand. (For Skin and Kidney Stones)

This journey of mine is not a QUICK FIX and not for the faint in heart.  It is a challenge I took as a last resort attempt to KILL AND DESTROY this thing called ECZEMA that stole so many years from me.  IT HAD TO GO for GOOD.  I NEEDED TO HEAL.  NO MORE ECZEMA..  I am now finalizing the story as I have settled into my new LIFESTYLE and FREE from eczema for over 2 years now.  WILL YOU FOLLOW ME?

My next step is Metal Detoxing after I stop breastfeeding.  I still have mercury fillings in my mouth and I have a constant reminder of the toxins they are leaching into my body.  I must find a dentist who specializes in safe removal of amalgam metal fillings to safely remove them. NOT SAFE WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING.

CONTINUE ON MY JOURNEY..

KIDNEY STONE CARE...

If your not ready to jump in or already on the maintenance diet.  Here is my shopping list post healing.

 

DIET CHANGES I MADE (ELIMINATING ADDED SUGARS),

I began my journey by eliminating the kidney triggers, since I had kidneys stones and do not ever wish to have them again, drinking filtered water, and eating clean.  Triggers that had to go were: refined added sugars, reading The 30 Day Faith Detox, (a great start for those who would like a daily devotional, systematically detoxing one organ at a time along with meal planning and recipes) drinking a good greens product and drinking MORE and purified water and eating clean and avoiding environmental toxins and using toxic free hygiene products and household products

DIET CHANGES I MADE (HEALING THE GUT)

I also soon started on the 30 Day Faith Detox,, I made it to day 10.  I needed to begin in the gut and this is where I believe it all starts.  I began to address my lower bowels and take some high quality enzymes and a good probiotic to replenish my gut flora.  My friend suggested bone broth so I made me a batch of this.  I was reminded of the amazing testimonials I had heard from customers while working for Dr Christopher’s Herb in college.  We sold a formula specific to cleaning the bowels and I definitely needed and extra boost and decided to use the ingredients in Dr Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula. and put together my own tea with herbs I found locally from World Of Nutrition, Nampa’s bulk herb section for half the price.  If making your own formula isn’t for you, here is a great option as well for your colon health.  The Supplement Facts are listed below.  Dr Mario Brus in Nampa Idaho suggests a product called RESTORE PROFESSIONAL, Restore-the gut tight junction closer and S. Boulardii by Jarrow to supplement nutrients needed and improve the gut health as well as doing a bone broth.  Some start gently with chicken broth to begin to heal the gut and restore the microbiome.  There is also a product Biomedic, get $50 off with coupon code BETRUE, that helps block the glyphosate (Roundup sprayed on almost ALL NON ORGANIC wheat and other produce before harvesting) and restore the gut biome.  Please contact me for more info on these as I do not yet have the info.

I made a lot of my own remedies based on these ingredients, I also made bone broth and ate a high fat, veggie and juice diet for the beginning phase of my journey.

I always use caution and research the ingredients for myself, I started on a low dose and ultimately decided what to use and how much by the way I felt inspired to do.

I had to start to interpret my symptoms and translate them into simple ways to start towards my journey to health.  Along the way, I would run into something that would trigger a reaction, some would call allergy, but I began to recognize some of these reactions as part of the HEALING PROCESS as skin is a detox organ and my body was trying to eliminate SOMETHING…  (I would encourage you to look deeper at these reactions, as they may hold a key to eliminating a deeper issue, as we are so keen to avoid THESE ALLERGENS, when in fact, they may be an answer to our problems)

About this same time I was given an answer from God.

I found that the best way to see results is to document symptoms and what steps I took.  You may want to start a journal to take clear notes to know what works for you.  Remember that we are all uniquely created by God and we all have been exposed to different environmental factors as well as unique diets and lifestyles that brought us to TODAY..

Take a few minutes to see what your body needs by answering some basic questions and take control of your health.

Psalm 30:30 King James Version (KJV)

30 I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord, I made supplication.

My name is Jill and I am a sugar-holic.

What is the big deal of eating sugar? We all need it.

“So what? Everyone likes sugar.”

We all NEED a little sugar in our diet.  A little sugar isn’t going to hurt you.  Well, there lies the issue.  What is the BIG DEAL?

  1. EVERYONE likes sugar
  2. We think we NEED all the ‘added’ sugars.
  3. Its hardly ever just a LITTLE.
  4. Sugar is EVERYWHERE and ADDED to EVERYTHING.
  5. There are at least 141 reasons why sugar is toxic.

Natural sugars in moderation are necessary for body functioning in a healthy and natural way.  However, many of us are at the toxic level of ADDED Sugar and consume more than we should in a month, every single day.  I had to come to terms with the temporary pleasures that wreck MAJOR havoc on my health.  Not to mention the GMO’s and refining process that produce toxins.

Commit to slowly ween off this toxic addiction in to your life.  Step into the challenge, you won’t regret it.  Avoid inefficient methods and start slowly.

HERE are some of my go to recipes for SUGAR CRAVINGS

WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS AND LONG TERM EFFECTS INCLUDE:

  • Agitation
  • Headaches
  • Bear like tendencies
  • Irritation with those around you consuming the yummy toxins
  • Divorce
  • More energy
  • Less bloating
  • Lightening of lower stomach pressure
  • Better attitude

Make your own healing treat and curb your sugar and chocolate cravings all in one.  There are many alternative and just as healthy recipes out there. So find one that works for you and your health.  Caution for those with diabetes and other insulin issues, honey may spike your sugar so find something that works for your body.  Molasses, agave, stevia, or less honey.

Coconut Fudge

  • 1 C organic extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 C organic peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa (or more to taste) I now use healthy carob powder and the kids love it
  • 1/4 C raw honey (or less to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp Saigon cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla
  • Himalayan sea salt (optional)

In a KitchenAid, blend softened coconut oil and peanut butter until smooth and well blended. Add cocoa powder, honey and cinnamon taste. Add vanilla.

Pour into shallow dish, cover and refrigerate and sneak into them until they disappear.

Must be refrigerated until consumed due to melting at room temps. The cooled coconut acts as the hardening agent in these.

Enjoy alone or share with others.

Disclaimer: coconut oil is a natural laxative. Do not try to eat these all at once.  Only consume a small amount until your body is used to the coconut oil.

Other tasty tips to curb a chocolate addiction.

Here is How I Survive the Holidays!

Order Uncommon Carob bars or Uncommon carob chips from Azure Standards

So you want to feel good?

I have discovered the natural way to improve my life.  It’s far too good to keep to myself. This is for all my friends and family who are curious about my new lifestyle changes and all those others who would like to learn what has worked for me.

Some of us grow up hearing, ‘it’s all about our diet and exercise.’ Well, if you are like me, you may think, ‘I do not need to diet’, or , ‘I eat pretty healthy.’  This is the thinking that has gotten me into a bit of trouble.  Maybe you have trouble losing weight, feel sluggish, losing momentum or plain just don’t ever feel good.  You may be on your own healing path and have tips to share.  You’re all in the right place.

Well, diet and exercise is a broad and overused term. I will attempt to break it down and explain exactly what that means to me today…

I am a 34 year old, mother of four children and 120 pounds on a heavy day. I grew up in Utah, eating the average American diet of cold cereals, malt o meal, oatmeal, eggs, french toast, pancakes, waffles all smothered in margarine and imitation maple syrup and toast with margarine for breakfast’s. Macaroni and cheese, ramen noodles, school lunches and fast foods once or twice a month for lunches.  I enjoyed a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for snacks and home cooked dinners (mostly out of a can of coarse).  I drank a cup or two of milk daily and a juice on occasion.  We had six kids in the family so the fresh food went quickly.

I recreationally used drugs and alcohol and tobacco as a teenager, but I quickly turned my life around upon getting pregnant, and turning my life over to God and being forgiven by the blood shed by Jesus Christ for all my sins. I married at 17 and began my family.

I had always fairly healthy, but I occasionally suffered from dry skin and cracking, some athletes feet, eczema and warts.  These skin issues went dormant mostly after my teen years of partying. (I will share my conclusion on this in a later post)

As a mom, I loved to cook mostly from scratch and use family recipes, I made homemade pies like my dad and my mom’s no bake cheesecake for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I enjoy creating new and healthy snacks, rice krispie treats, cookies of all kinds (with what I thought was a healthy twist.)  I also enjoyed homemade pancakes smothered in imitation syrup, whole wheat flour, oatmeal raisin cookies with nuts, I served my family crepes weekly (white flour, egg, milk, a thin pancake smothered in margarine and powdered sugar).

Basically I ate a good balance of good and healthy foods and plenty of bad foods, a ton of candy, sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup for over 30 years. You get the picture.

All in all, I seemed pretty healthy most of the time. I did start to feel sluggish, low energy, and had a complete lack of motivation or ability to keep up with my kids the past 10 years or so, but this is normal right?

So I thought…

This is only the beginning of amazing things to come.
