Reconstructing my normal existence…

If you would have told me last year that things in my life would NEVER be the same I would have told you you were crazy.

But that is exactly what has occurred over the past nine month.  Every aspect of my life has been demolished and reconstructed in a whole new and improved way.

  • I sleep soundly and wake up refreshed.
  • I eat better food.
  • I feel better.
  • I shop differently.
  • My relationships have changed.
  • My routine has had drastic reconstructing.
  • My goals and perspective has changed.

NOTHING is as it used to be and it NEVER will be.  I’m moving on to new horizons.  There is no turning back.

Thank God for giving me a NEW LIFE.

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 been talking with my friend in South Africa and gaining a lot of good remedies and 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.

But hold fast and start today.  FOR THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING…

Eczema is Clearing

The basics to my healing break through.

AFTER

My eczema started clearing up after I was able to go without sugar and started drinking my greens from Purity Products Organic Juice Cleanse. It would flair back up when I snuck any sugar and that dang maddening itch began.  I would notice a pattern as I was out standing outside observing the full moon.  So I began to pay attention and realized that quite a bit of restlessness, swelling and itching occurred each month abouth 5 days prior and up to the full moon.  I tried many things that helped, like changing my diet, morning detox drink, and some that didnt.  While diets is key, the easiest most simple methods are my Nightly Detox Baths followed by soaking my hand in vodka and essential oils and alternating with my thyme discovery.  I used these things nightly until my hand cleared and anytime I could feel a flair up followed by applying Mom’s Stuff Salve.  With patience and vigor over the past 8 months I have been clear of painful blistering for two months now.  What are you waiting for?  Get started today or step it up.

None of this would be possible without the strength and wisdom provided me by God.  May He get all the glory for healing me and providing all that’s necessary from this day on.  All His amazing food and the Spirit to guide me.

“I Could Never Be A Health Nut!”

Up to the point that I was suffering from kidney stones and pains, and severe eczema to searching out a remedy that would last, I had viewed “those” people who drastically changed their lifestyles, lived on a strict diet, denied their kids sugar, ate all organic,  or read lables at the grocery store as a bit extreme and I could NEVER live such a restricted life.  Why live in such misery and torture?  That is not for me.

Well that all changed when I began to feel better after changing a few key things in my life.  Learning what I can eat rather than focusing on the foods to avoid.

After experiencing the drastic healing of my health issues, my moods being up, energy levels amazingly improving, I was converted.

I will forever be ONE OF THOSE.  I AM NOW PROUD TO BE A BIT OF A HEALTH NUT.

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.

Thanks for coming along for my journey…
