A Sick World

images

I’m reading the book Clean by Alejandro Junger MD, he discusses a program to restore the body’s natural ability to hear itself.

He points out in our culture, how the early signs and symptoms of toxic overloads are confused and ignored. Many times this is written off as normal wear and tear on the body as if there’s nothing that can be done to fix it. This means toxic conditions are able to manifest and symptoms appear later on. In our world this is suppressed by drugs and later fixed by surgery and an underlying primary cause is never discovered. Eventually the body overburdened with toxicity, the systems collapse and chronic diseases managed to set in.

Cancer… that’s a big word that means a lot to many people, the scariest diagnosis we know of, but what if we can prevent it?. Dr. Junger points out that cancer cells are simply cells that forgot how to do their chemistry they also forgot how to do math geography and grammar and even how to behave within the community of cells.

The question that is posed is why are human cells behaving erratically killing their own kind and every other type of cell?

In a nutshell, the answer is Toxins.

Toxins are obstacles to normal cells, causing irritation and inflammation they damage your cells and tissues and your entire system starts to malfunction.
Toxicity is not a disease and it’s not a specific symptom is a condition that exists right now in our world.

There are two kinds of toxins the first is Endotoxins those are waste products of normal activity of your cells. Exotoxins, however are human made we are exposed to them intentionally or inadvertently every day.

What you need to know to help yourself will be delivered to you in my blog in the coming weeks. There is a lot in this big world that we cannot control, but boy oh boy there’s a lot that we can. And now more than ever for ourselves and for our children it is time to pay attention. The landscape of our food is worsening by the day.

The FDA allows poisinous substances in our food, companies like Monsanto are hell bent on feeding us Franken-Food that has been created in test tubes. The air quality in our homes is more toxic than outside and the medical system is out of control with doctors prescribing cocktails of prescritions that mix in our bodies to create a set of problems all of it’s own.

It is time to take back your body, your children and the health of your family.

Today just do this for me, stop and think about where your food came from and ask your self some questions about your household.
Is my food natural, what’s in it? Where did it come from? How was it produced? How far from being whole, real food is it?

Think about what you’re rubbing on your skin, or your child’s skin, are you rubbing any chemicals, hormones or poisons?

When you clean, do the fumes overwhelm your senses? Does it create headaches and have warning labels all over it?

Mothers and wives have the hardest jobs, you’re already busy with jobs kids and life that spins in a million directions. Add to all of that the fact that you are the chief consumer, you are the one that makes most of the buying decisions that come into your home.

There’s a lot to think about, and when you’re tired, wandering through the maze of grocery aisles you really don’t have time to read the labels and understand the hieroglyphics in the ingredients list.

I’m your friend who cares, I’m going to do this for you. Actually I have already done it, over the years, studying to purify my own world, all of the research and I continue to learn every day.

All you need to do is take a little time, the time you don’t have to read this book, the time you don’t have to do the research… put that tiem into reading this blog.
I’ll help you to learn how to wisely choose products and understand how to make the environment around you and your family a kinder place.

Blessings to you~

First Do No Harm

Here we go, la la la learning everything the hard way….

Seems to be the story of my life at times, being delivered a crippling problem out of the blue back in 2000 I struggled through finding a diagnosis based on the symptoms I was experiencing. I was 100% trusting the medical community to lead me out of the muddy water back to that sunny shore of feeling awesome.
What happened was a very different story, it was a 13 year culmination of doctor appointments, specialists, pills, tests, bloodwork, xrays, surgeries and unanswered questions.
It took an eye opening, rude and unprofessional dismissal from the last saviour I trusted to open my eyes that there is no white knight in a white coat who is going to come whisk me away and fix me.
That fairy tale came to a screeching halt!

After I got done crying and being very angry at him I could now write him a letter and thank him.
I was forced to take matters into my own hands and know that if I am going to get better and find good health again I have more to do with it that a doctor does.
We expect them to uphold an oath that says “first do no harm” but we are in our daily lives making the decisions, our doctor is not. Why are we not taking the same oath and saying “first do no harm to myself”?

Long ago I admittedly did abusive things to my body like smoking, drinking, fast food, not getting enough sleep….most of us have been down this road. It is not one I am proud of, so many time I think about the squandering of youth and energy on total crap, if I could go back wiser, oh my the damage I would do!

The biggest step I took in 2013 was to take charge of my own health and realize my doctor is a person, he does a job and is there to support me, he is not a magical figure who is waving the happy wand over my head to fix me.

I found a good piece of advice which was to look up my condition in the good old Merck Manual, yep that’s the one medical professionals use. Doctors use this to diagnose and medicate, it is a plethera of information and is available online.

I don’t want his job, I investigate so that I understand his perspectives and I can partner with him to find what will aid me. I can research and look to the therapies I am comfortable with avoiding the ones I am not. We can have a dialouge about my health instead of me feeling like the powerless one who must just do what he says.

One of the best moves I made was to see out purity in my food, eating organic and moving away from GMO’s and preservatives. My son and husband have been along for the ride and the biggest thing I can see in them is the sugar cravings have stopped. We are all healthier than we were overall, don’t misunderstand I am still fighting a disease that threatens me daily, but I know that my body is sitting up and listening where before it was just plain sick, my cells were sick and screaming at me, I looked like death warmed over.

We eat whole meals, prepared with love and honor. Yes it takes time to do this and yes it is a commitment but one that is just as important to me as the mortgage payment to keep the roof over our heads.

I may not get rid of my disease but I can get so healthy that it quiets into remission. In my eyes essentially I have told it to sit down and shut up because this is my body not yours!

I get up each day and give myself a fighting chance, if I did anything less I’d be ashamed.

Glowing Green Juice

Sustainable Choices ~ Green Lyme's Disease Smoothie

Every morning I start my day off with one of these green glowing beauties. Thanks to a crazy health mis-diagnosis  I experience a lot of pain and struggle daily. The one thing I force myself to do is juice. I have found that my diet plays a big role in the way my body works and feels.

During a health crisis healthy eating is key, but at times you must take the next step. I began watching documentaries on my sick days to pass time and learn about wellness. I began with Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead featuring Joe Cross and Crazy, Sexy, Cancer featuring the story of Kris Carr. Their stories inspired me to look beyond  everything I tried before and look at how I use food.

I’ve been told by many this is gross, extreme and just plain weird but let me tell you about why this is an important key is unlocking my return to health.

One word, Acid, no not the trippy kind, the kind that creates illness in a human. Acids occur naturally, the by-products of respiration, cellular breakdown, metabolism and exercise. Not to mention the host of acidic foods that are consumed in the traditional American diet. Just to name a few, alcohol, refined grains, sugar, soda, chemicals from pesticide, medication and preservatives…shall I keep going? It’s super easy to become acidic, not so much on the alkaline.

What happens? Well anyone who knows about a fish in an aquarium knows about Ph, Acidity and Alkalinity. PH too high? Sick Fish! An acid environment in the body is a breeding ground for bad bacteria, yeast and fungi. Check your urine to find out with litmus paper strips sold online, they are pretty accurate.

Acidity over a long period of time saps the minerals from your body, leading to osteoporosis  and weak teeth and bones.

Enzymes are another big factor…up to 95% of your body funtion depends on enzymes! We get them from food but much of the time we cook it first and kill them, sad fact! Raw food is a great source of enzymes!

The long and short is this, reducing the the acid that creates the free radicals that make us sick is the best way to fight illness without drugs.

I for one did my run with meds and know far too well the side efects and toxicity it creates. I said goodbye to that and said hello green juice and have not looked back!
