Constipation Cleanses

When we have a clogged toilet, this requires immediate attention.  If left too long it can cause major problems.  You get the idea.  Well our bodies are not much different.  They may require our help from time to time.  If something gets in the way of the flow, this can make us sick.  We cannot easily take a plunger to our bodies, but there are many simple and tested remedies and many are easily accessible.

We have the option to choose to consume foods and drinks that are very simple or wait til the problem is beyond us and be forced to call the plumber and resort to surgical procedures.  The choice is solely up to us.  

Here are just a few of the many ways to clear the pipes of our bowels.  Ponder on these next time you squat.

Dr Christopher’s Herbal Formulas offers a Lower Bowel formula or Colon Cleanse formula.  (I worked in the call center in college out of Springville, UT where they had their production of fresh and quality products made in small batches to fulfill orders. It was amazing to see it all first hand.) It is local and family owned and operated.  I don’t receive any promotional incentives but just love the integrity of the product line. They have a variety of products offered. For a price.

Or if you prefer to make your own. Several local wellness shops offer bulk herbs to make your own version with simple herbs.

What! You don’t let your kids have sugar?

I have made some major changes this year, one being eliminating sugar from my diet and my kids diet, and have taken a lot of heat for it from others.  I feel like I am making the best choices for my children’s and my own health and for some reason, many feel that they must criticize and undermine me and tell me how terrible and mean I am being.

At birthday parties… “A little cake won’t hurt them.” Then comes candy from the piñata , ice cream and soda to top it all off.

Social gatherings… “Your mom won’t mind you having a little dessert” or two.

At the bank, from strangers… “What, they can’t have sugar? It’s only a sucker”

And still other times… “You can have it if you don’t tell you mom”

I don’t mind being the target, however, doing in front of or directly to my kids is not acceptable.  I have taught them why I have made these changes and they understand and don’t fight me.  I don’t need others to chime in and teach my kiddos to disobey or disregard my decisions.

I’m content being different and choosing to do the difficult in order to fight off disease.

My now five year old is just fine with it now.  I just remind him not to feed the worms.

Thanks be to God who gives us strength in our weekness.

Heavy Metal

Somewhere along my journey, I vaguely remember hearng about mercury toxicity, I assumed I had addressed it with my strict diet and lifestyle changes.

I have since traced back my kidney and skin issues from around the same time I had swine flu and the tamaflu shot while pregnant in Montana 2009 and having dental work completed through a student dental program for pregnant moms in 2011.

Up to this point, it has been an oversight, I had not quite acknowledged the fact that I had put two and two together.

I have watched the Vaxxed documentary on the autism link to MMR vaccine, however,  the fact that my four year old son has early signs of autism and has never received ANY vaccinations has me questioning his HEAVY METAL toxicity levels.

My kidney issues, his autistic traits. There has to be a link.

My friend made this connection today and has confirmed my oversighted thoughts and now I’m paying attention…

Here are simple ways you can eat to help detox from heavy metals.

Cilantro Chelation Pesto

This wonderful recipe is by Colorado nutritionist Lynn Mayer, CNC

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup of Brazil nuts (selenium)
  • 1/3 cup Sunflower seeds (Zinc, Magnesium)
  • 2 cups packed with fresh cilantro (Vitamin A) – Also known as Coriander, Chinese Parsley
  • 2/3 cup flaxseed oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C)
  • 2 tablespoons dulse powder
  • Sea salt to taste

Directions

Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the coriander is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add a pinch of sea salt to taste, and blend again. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year. Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser. Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies.

Simple Cilantro Pesto

Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup almonds, cashews or other nuts
  • 1 cup packed freesh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste (you may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender). You can change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil and lemon juice, but keep the 3:1 ratio of oil to juice. (It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.

It’s time we all take a step back and renew our minds.

Many of us still rely on people to lead us the right direction.  Who do we turn to when we are sick?

I was driving down the road today and had to stop and take a picture.

God has given us everything we need.  He is the ONLY SAFE OPTION WE HAVE.  Be blessed
