Here is a link to some of my health goals:
In addition to the coconut oil and the raw honey and real salt, I also had started oil pulling while in KC.
And after much research decided that I'm probably vitamin A & D deficient so I started a very good quality cod liver oil this last week.
In addition to adding these things to my diet, I've also cut out refined sugar, flour, pasta and rice [although I am having a little Natural White flour in my pizza once a week] and I'm on day 18, in 8 days I will be where I was before having some of my son's birthday dessert on 4/27.
After 10+ years of painful-itching-sometimes-blee
ding eczema, and trying EVERYTHING under the sun to get rid of it, I was dumbfounded two nights ago to discover that I'm HEALING! I'm ecstatic! The only problem--WHAT from? Is it the daily cod liver oil? Is it the daily oil pulling? Is it using coconut oil in my cooking and chocolates? Or dietary changes??? Oh, well, I'll just keep doing these things, and hopefully I will be completely rid of this ONCE and for all!!!!
And another interesting thing is that I haven't had **anything** chocolate for three days! I'm just not craving it [my healthier chocolates with raw honey, coconut oil, and cocoa] and I'm THRILLED. I guess a sign that you're lacking magnesium is a craving for chocolate. I did have a Pink Lady apple the other day and it felt SO good to have that over chocolate and it was DELICIOUS!!!
My weight it NOT budging, and the 5#'s I lost in KC, quickly returned--I wonder if I even lost that much--maybe it was all water??? Who knows, but I do know that I'm 20#'s heavier than I was two years ago at this time. And I'm VERY much resolved, by God's grace, to lose it. I feel satisfied with the changes for now, even though the weight is not budging, and will take the next step, as the LORD leads me.
I've been walking and T-Tapping, so that feels good! Also, I'm excited to get into my gardens. I'll start some of that tomorrow.
I'll end with a GREAT quote I read from a FABULOUS book called, "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon.
"To make us healthy, our food must taste good; it must be digestible, and it must be eaten in peace. Even whole foods, properly prepared according to traditional methods, do us no good if we eat them with a grudge; they will not confer health on the man who does not forgive. It is the loving heart who will find, in the pages that follow, guidelines for providing an abundance of all the nutrients we need to live healthy, happy and productive lives." Sally Fallon
GREAT reminder! We could have it all right with food and exercise, but if we don't have love and forgiveness towards our family, friends and even enemies, then we will be THE most unhealthy of people!
Love you, dear friends! Susan
