There was a time in my life that I felt like a prisoner in my own body because of crippling joint pain and a myriad of other symptoms. I spent several years learning the appropriate ways to care for myself, and it comes down to this: food is medicine. The body knows how to use the healing properties of plants and animals without side effects that you get with pharmaceuticals.
I mean, c'mon! You've seen the commercials, right? "Drug XYZ will help you feel so good! You'll be frolicking through the forest in no time! Other than the times that you'll have explosive diarrhea, your hair falling out... and, oh, a significantly increased risk of cancer." No big deal.
Plant and animal matter have the ability to support the body in healing, even from things an MD might tell you aren't possible. They tell you healing is impossible because they're evil and they want to destroy your life. Kidding! Just kidding! Doctors often don't think healing is a real possibility because they have little to no education on nutrition and how it support the body in working efficiently. Their education is based on research with statistically significant findings. And that's great, except when it isn't. There aren't big studies out there focusing on how healing your gut can heal your diseases. Why? Who is going to fund these studies? Your local organic farmers? I bet you know who has ALL THE CASH to fund big studies though: the makers of all those pharmaceuticals.
I've chosen to put my faith into healing from the inside out in the most natural way I can. Today's Woman magazine recently wrote a short article about me and my journey to real wellness. I'd love for you to read it and to let me know if you've recently made any changes for your health and how that's working for you!
All the best,
