There is some wisdom shared here about how being in the here and now is important to our health.  I need the reminder as well.

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.

Because Of You

It is because of You, Jesus That I am able to breathe Because You gave Adam the Breath of Life, and thus By your loving mercy I can inhale and exhale For, Lord, You will never fail You never cease …

Reconstructing my normal existence…

If you would have told me three years ago that things in my life would NEVER be the same I would have told you you were crazy.  I thought I would forever struggle with skin issues, pain, night crawling, itching and blistering.  I thought I would always be tired and sluggish and in a brain fog because I was getting older.

But that is exactly what has occurred over the nine months of my healing.  Every aspect of my life has been demolished and reconstructed in a whole new and improved way.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

  • 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.

capture_2016-12-01-10-29-09

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.

Update: after a few years and keeping sugar out of the house, my husband and teen have been able to feel the difference and they both are choosing to follow my lead and rarely have an issue.  We ALL feel pretty awful if we decide to give in a little.

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!”

After, I had made some major changes in my life, eliminating sugar from my diet and my kids diet, I 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.

WAYS OTHERS PUSH MY KIDS

  • 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 weakness.

2 Corinthians 12:8-10 King James Version (KJV)

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.   Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Gut Healing

HEAL THE GUT

Prevent and heal from disease by tackling what many believe to be the starting point of issues in the body, THE BOWELS, or a big part of the IMMUNE SYSTEM.  It’s all in the gut.  If you have ever taken a round of antibiotics (Follow link and see number 8), 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.

DIET CHANGES I MADE (HEALING THE GUT)

I also soon started on the 30 Day Faith Detox, I made it to day 10.  I needed to begin in the gut, ALTHOUGH EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, I believe it all starts.  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 bone broth.  I was also 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 blend of herbs to use as a 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.
