New years eve, I had prepared myself with the idea that I was going to start the new year off right. So that night, I threw out all of our party food, and dumped the soda down the drain!
I woke up and to my surprise went right along with my day, maybe a little urge to snack here and there, but nothing like the past year. Or past 20 years I should say! In the past I would vow to just get through one day, and it never happened. I just couldn't control myself. So I have no idea really where my new found strength and will power has come from!
Could it be that the year is fresh? Was that really all it took? I have also been doing a lot of research on the types of food we eat. How our food is made, the processes it goes through. I can honestly say the truth has turned me off. Sure a piece of cake at a party, or a sandwich with processed meat is okay on occasion, but it certainly should not be things we put into our bodies all day long!
These things are full of toxins! Also packed with carcinogens! mmm sounds delish huh?
Well I don't think so! All of this research has helped my mindset, changing how I feel about the foods I used to be addicted to!
I have also, been researching the nutritional and health benefits of fruits and vegetables, I never knew they had such power! And the documentaries I have watched (on Netflix) about the Gerson therapy, has left me with so much hope yet so much frustration!
There is a Gerson clinic in Mexico. Why Mexico? Because it was determined by our government that it should be illegal to have such a clinic in the states! This is a non-profit organization that heals people, heals cancer patients, how?By injecting them with dangerous toxic chemicals? by removing body parts? NO! by detoxifying the liver, by providing patients with the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables, and by eating a vegan diet. Amazing isn't it? I thought so!
So why would our government reject such a reasonable, healthy cure???? Can anyone guess? Because our medical world would come crashing down, because the giant pill companies would lose out on all that money they make convincing us that we need to pay hundreds of dollars for one pill!?
So the frustrating part, is that people are dying of cancer every day, and we can't trust our doctors to do the right thing . Instead of telling us, sorry, we have done all we can, however don't give up hope, try this alternative cancer therapy!, they say Sorry, you have 6-9 months to live! Many doctors now about this therapy but risk losing their jobs if the say anything about it!
Okay, so enough about all of that, back to me and how I am doing. lol.
If I want something to eat that may not be that healthy for me, well I eat it, but maybe once a week! For the most part I juice. So even if I am not very effectively cleansing my system, I am atleast provided my body with more nutrients than I ever had in my entire life! At some point I would love to do a juice fast though! So I have been mostly juicing, I make a soup of beans and veges and I portion it out in bags and freeze them, so when I am hungry I have something quickly available. :) And if I please, I will sit and enjoy dinner with my family, even if it's on the heavy side. I try not to eat too much of it. In fact if I do eat too much, I always regret it. Not because I feel bad that I cheated, this is not cheating. I feel painfully sick. My stomach is not used to holding heavy foods, nor greasy food. So this has left my body craving the healthier
food more often than the not so healthy food.
With that said, I am ready to say good bye to a healthy January, and hello to a healthy February! :)
