Have you ever watched the show ‘God Friended Me?’ I think a lot of people watch it not necessarily because they believe in God but they want to have hope. Kind of like the magic of Christmas.
When I was ill with numerous different diagnoses, I wanted hope that I would feel better and that I would get better. Being involved in the field of health care, I looked to the professionals to heal me. What I got was not what I expected. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for medications and health care treatment. For me it was 12 medications later and I was getting sicker.
After lots of research, I realized that my illnesses could possibly be healed with just food. REALLY? FOOD? Well I have been eating food for many years. What happened? It was the kinds of food I was eating and the stress in my life. If you would have told me that to begin with, I would have doubted you just like people doubt, when I tell them the same thing. Then I started a whole food supplement, eliminated diet coke from each day (I drank 1 every day)and sugary sweets; I stopped coffee for 6 months; stopped drinking wine for 1 year. What happened? I got off of all my 12 medications. I started craving whole food; fruits, vegetables, berries, every day.
Now, I want to say right now, I was at a point of hopelessness in my life. I had missed out on a lot of my children’s events because I was sick. They wanted to send me to the Mayo clinic to go get care that they thought I needed. What I needed was to eat more whole food nutrition and decrease my stress. I feel better now in my mid-50’s than I did in my 30’s. I can tell you there is hope.
