Choco Nutter Nano Smoothie

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.

Laura Harris also recommends

Taking nightly Detox Baths

Key to detoxing

  • Eating Clean Foods
  • Avoiding processed foods
  • Eliminating animal fats for a time
  • Avoiding grains
  • Staying away from added sugars
  • Drinking More Water
  • Avoiding as many environmental toxins as possible

Do I really need to detox?

My thoughts on sugars

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

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.

Stuff for Detox Baths

If buying meat, I try to find it grassfed organic.

Milk, I buy raw goats milk.  But even raw milk  is a good alternative.

Buy Local

Just stopped by to support a local farmer.  Stan from Stan’s Ranch Market sells naturally grown watermelon along with cantaloupe.  He will soon be selling fresh grape juice. The man is 93 years old and manning his own stand on the corner of Midland Blvd and Karcher Road Nampa. The kids also picked up a job selling them from our house. Yeah!  Get yours today, they wont last long.  Contact me for the address.

Don’t waste the rind, ferment them.

What Can I Buy? Produce on a budget.

If you have waited to jump on the organic and non-GMO wagon due to financial or other reasons, here is helpful guide to buying healthly minimally pesticide affected produce without buying all organic.
