Translate Symptoms into Healing-Step by Step of my journey- Updated 12/13/18

START YOUR OWN JOURNEY BY FINDING OUT WHAT YOUR BODY IS STRUGGLING IN… I HAVE NOW INCLUDED EASY TO FOLLOW LINKS FOR ALL THE PRODUCTS THAT I USED IN 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 in the body.  The BOWELS.  Its all in the gut.  If you have ever taken a round of antibiotics, 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?

I began my journey by eliminating the kidney triggers, since I had kidneys stones and do not ever wish to have them again, such as 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

As part of the 30 day faith detox, I needed to begin in the gut.  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.

Healing by helping others.

We all have times where we struggle, know someone who can use a little help, or are in need yourself at the moment.  We all can make a huge difference for someone.  Help a local family this year.  Make a meal for a neighbor in need.  Offer someone to join you for Christmas or reach out and spread the love.  By doing something nice for someone, we can take a moment and be thankful for what we have and share out of our lack or abundance.

Many today abide in need.  Please take a moment and look around. It won’t take long to notice an individual who can be abundantly blessed by your kindness.

That’s what this couple has done for a mom and her four kids.  Charity has taken them into their home when they themselves are in need.  Help them as they help others.  As a community, we can do so much more.

Charity started a gofundme to help this family if you feel led to contribute $2 to $5 for their immediate needs.  Thanks so much.

By showing sympathy to others we can bring healing to our community and bring faith in humanity back into our hearts.

Prepare for Battle

When it comes to major life events, there is nothing that fully helps but God alone.  Our minds need protection, our body’s, our everything.  There is so much going on all around us and if we are not fully prepared by the Spirit then we can be knocked down quickly.  So we must be prepared by putting on Christ and the panoply.  When one is physically sick, tired or hungry our guard is down.  We must choose to take care of ourselves and eat well and be our best.

Panoply

The Full Armor of God

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Reconstructing my normal existence…

Originally written 12/02/2016

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 perspectives have changed.

NOTHING is as it used to be and it NEVER will be again.  I’m moving on to new horizons.  There is NO TURNING BACK.

Thank God for giving me a NEW LIFE.

Don’t feed the worms.

After taking on what seems to be the impossible, detoxing myself from sugar, I was faced with the echoing dilemma, “How do I take sugar from my kids?” and “Will life ever be the same?”  

The answers are quite complex but not unreachable.

It came to me after talking about it with my four year old.

NOTE: My kids love playing in the compost pile and seeing who can find the biggest worms.

I was talking to the kids about parasites, the germs and invaders of the body, and about how sugars feed them and out of my mouth came the question, 

“Do you want to feed your worms?”

This pretty much took care of the problem.  Of course he didn’t want them in his tummy.

I haven’t had much of a struggle with the kids since.  Praise God for simple things.  Kids are so amazing and if we take the time to teach them truth at a level they understand, they grasp it quickly and completely.

I wish it was that easy for the teenager and husband to grasp.  But the echo of this question works for the young ones for now.

. . .

Funny thing is, when my four year old now wants a sucker from the bank line he turns to mommy in public and says loud and serious,

“I WANNA FEED MY WORMS!”

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 ailments 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. I simply use the scary word, parasite, for myself and my kids because it motivates me to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I made a parasite cleanse like this one with Black Walnut Hull, Wormwood, and Cloves.

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 invisible, 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

Originally written 11/29/2016 – Updated 12/13/2018

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.

In the early 2000’s, I had heard about detoxing and cleansing when I worked for Dr Christopher’s herb shop connection back in college over.  But like so many, I had never considered my need for changing anything or pursuing it for my health, I was young and healthy.

That was then.

Fast forward to Early 2016

I knew I was not feeling well, I was 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.

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

I started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars.  Eating a clean diet and slowly introducing green drinks, Probiotics and Digestive enzymes as well as Chicken Broth and bone broth to my diet.  I also had checked out a book from the library The 30 Day Faith Detox by Laura Harris.  In this book, I found helful tips on easy detoxes from one organ to the next, recipes and shopping recommendations, as if this wasnt enough great stuff, she wraps it all up with a great daily devotional and spiritual and relational detox tips.  (I only made it to day 10—Here is why ~ I am looking forward to completing the 30 day journey as soon as I stop breatfeading my 5th child)

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 reasons 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 I could not function
  • The improvements I had after stopping my added sugar intake by using alternatives to my favorite sweets, chocolate, and beginning my green drinks after one week were evidence of HOPE.

About this same time, I had been talking with my friend in South Africa and gaining a lot of good Ayurvedic 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.  After eliminating added sugar from my diet, 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 The 30 Day Faith Detox which included Detoxing the Liver gently, Colon and Eating Clean.
