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.

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.

I just updated this Post overview of my Journey and added A LOT of helpful information, including links to everything listed.
 
While, I do earn as an Amazon Affiliate, and I appreciate your support, I stand on the fact that I included these tried and true products for those who feel the NEED to complete a full body detox with ready made products at decent prices.
 
Please NOTE: Everything listed here was not directly a part of my journey, as I made many of my own tinctures, I believe that I have given the best options and equivalent products to the ones that I hand created to complete my journey. I do not feel confident enough to use my created recipes for recommendations. My own homemade remedies were basic and modeled by the ingredients of Dr Christopher’s Original Formulas and others listed here.

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.

Today’s Challenge

Swap Sugar

Take the time today to treat yourself.  However, instead of sugar, swap out one of your regular choices with honey, molasses, stevia, agave or a fruit.  Be cautious here as these are still sugars and less is needed for sweetness.  Here is how sugar is ranked.

Maybe this means taking something you enjoy and giving it a makeover and substituting ingredients.  It is important to use less of the alternative sugar.

IDEAS:

  • Try replacing your morning coffee and sugar with honey, agave, stevia, raw coconut sugar.
  • Try Lemon and molasses water instead of your soda.
  • Whip up a batch of Healing Fudge instead of a candy bar.
  • Plan ahead and make Homemade Granola
  • Choose a sugarless smoothie instead of ice cream
  • Use healthy alternatives for sugar sparingly as they are more concentrated sugars.

 

NOT ALL SUGAR FREE IS SAFE

Be careful not to fall into looking for sugar-free as an alternative. There are many unsafe alternatives that are as bad or worse than added sugar.

Use less sugar alternatives as they are even considered questionable by some. https://authoritynutrition.com/6-healthy-sugars-that-can-kill-you/ 

Xylotol is a natural sweetener and can poison your dog.
