I’m Winning By Eating Right

June 23, 2018

WINNING with healthy eating

Other than extremely rare pollen allergies – as in once or twice a season – I have NO health conditions.

I used to suffer from allergies and IBS. I thought these things were *normal*.  I carried Rolaids and nasalcort in my purse daily. Back in 2006 my blood-work showed I had mildly high cholesterol. Instead of giving me a cholesterol prescription, my then Primary Care doctor (RIP) slipped me a piece a paper with a simple meal plan on it…

She said: “Do this so I won’t have to prescribe cholesterol meds to you next year. That stuff is horrible!”

I had no idea what a BLESSING my doctor was being to me. I didn’t know it, but she was already sick with cancer, and by the time my next year’s annual check-up came around, she was too sick to see patients. Six months later she was gone.

I learned A LOT about eating better from my tyrant friend, Geneva Clay (sister of my BFF Vanessa). At that time she had a business/ministry called “Fit for Life – Fit to Serve” where her mission was to help Believers to be good stewards over our bodies so sickness would not prevent us from doing the work of the Kingdom. – Thank you Geneva!

I can only imagine what my health would be like now if these two influencers had not ‘harassed’ me (j/k) into changing my eating habits way back then.

✔️It has not been easy.
✔️It did not happen overnight.
✔️I’m still not consistent at deliberate exercise, although I intentionally walk extra at work, in parking lots, and take the stairs instead of the elevator.
✔️And, I still fight the french fry demon! 🍟

BUT…

🙌 I’m WINNING the war against the food & drug industry whose tactics cause far too many American’s to have chronic diseases and be life-long pharmaceutical patients. I have NO health conditions and take NO meds.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. – 3 John 2:2

🙌 Testimony! — Last month we found out my hubby’s A1C was under 7 for the first time ever, his cholesterol was near perfect and he’s down 40lbs!

Healthy Eating – Yes it Takes Work

May 21, 2018
Healthy eating…
It’s not what they sell us packaged in stores.
It’s not what they talk about on promotional commercials.
And it’s not anything that’s been technologically or genetically modified for our convenience.
One of the main reasons people do not eat healthy is because it takes work to eat healthy.
Yes… it takes work.
BUT, BELOVED I WISH ABOVE ALL THINGS THAT YOU BE IN GOOD HEALTH EVEN AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS. (3 John 1:2).
This is what I want for the Body of Christ. You may pray the prayer of faith for your healing as much as you please; but, Beloved, faith without works is dead…
Friends, work your healthy eating habits until you love it so much you can never go back!

Four Years Without a Dentist… Why?

February 17, 2018

I have dental situation I have been *maintaining* using homeopathic remedies since 2014. The #dentist – no, the #dentistry industry – actually caused the condition by promoting the of composite (#resin) plastic for fillings. In short, #composite is just a toxic as silver, and furthermore, there is absolutely no way to prevent “micro-leakage” when using a plastic substance for deep dental fillings. It’s chemically impossible.

Against my better judgement I allowed my dentist to give me a composite filling in 2013. I could tell right away I would have problems with this filling.

Approximately 12 months later I had decay or #caries UNDER the filing. My dentist wanted to immediately drill out the 12 month old filling and the decay underneath it, and re-fill it with another composite filling.

Knowing another composite filling would end the same way, I refused.

I’ve treated my tooth with a variety of homeopathic remedies ever since. Because the caries is under the composite, I knew I couldn’t *heal* it, but I was pretty confident I could maintain it for a few years.

Two years ago my dentist called me and asked if I was ready to get treatment “on that tooth”. She said certainly it must be giving you pain or sensitivity by now. But no, I said, not yet. She inquired to know how I was treating it.

“I have several remedies…” I said.

Now, four years later, it’s time to deal with it using the assistance of a professional dentist 😦 I’ve done my research so, while I don’t yet know the exact condition of the tooth, I have decided which treatment options I will allow and not allow. For example, a #RootCanal is out of the question. Those things have a high rate of infection because they actually create a *trap* for bacteria.

So, how did I remediate my tooth for four years? The basis of my remedies included:

#DIET
○Avoiding sugar
○Grass-fed dairy (butter and milk)
○Grass-fed beef (in LIMITED amounts)
○Occasional consumption of liver
#BoneBroth
○Natural #probiotics
○Minimal consumption of grains

#DentalHygiene
○No products containing #fluoride. Period.
○Oil pulling with coconut oil — Usually with the oil only, but I’d sometimes add in turmeric or oil of oregano as needed.
○Brushing and swishing with Celtic sea salt and baking soda (sometimes with a drop of tea tree oil)
○Xyoltol dental rinse (sometimes with a few drops of colloidal silver)
○Careful cleaning between my teeth every time I eat (using floss or interdental brush and swishing)
○Occasional dental scaling

As a side note, bone broth is not the same as stock broth you see on the store shelves. It’s best to make it yourself, but I have found some great alternatives at health food stores, and even Whole Foods, in the freezer section. Bone broth has many other WONDERFUL effects on #HealthyLiving and having a strong #ImmuneSystem. Check out this #DrAxe article about it.

Lastly, I just want to share a little something about #RootCanals and #Bacteria from this article by OraWellness, Understanding the issues with root canals.

—- Dr. Haley chose to do his own studies similar to Weston Price’s research on root canal teeth using today’s technology. Dr. Haley studied approximately 900 teeth with root canals for their level of toxicity within. He grouped the teeth into three different groups.

Roughly 25% of the root canal teeth studied had bacteria within them which produced toxins that were fairly benign. 50% of the teeth studied contained bacteria within their structure that would challenge a healthy immune system. The last 25% of the teeth contained bacteria which produce toxins more powerful than botulinum (Important note, botulinum is widely recognized as the most toxic substance known to humans). This bears repeating. 25% of the teeth Dr. Haley studied contained a toxin stronger than the strongest toxin known to humans

The take-away point is this: Just like any other topic on healthy living, dental health should not be mysterious to you. The foods you consume and products you use are choices you should wisely consider so you can advocate for your own health and well-being. Remember, the dental industry needs you to keep needing them. I only want the need them 2 times a year for a check up and non-fluoride cleaning.

Influence Has No Boundaries

Influence… influr “to flow into” —- grants access to a deep place
The positional lines may be clear, but it is a fact that influence has no boundaries and it does not need my permission to go where it goes

What you say goes, God – Psalm 119:89 (MSG)

February 4, 2016

ForeverWordSettled

Psalm 119:89-96 – A declaration that acknowledges the saving and sustaining power that lies within our obedience to God’s word.

The Message (MSG)

89 – What you say goes, God, and stays, as permanent as the heavens.

90 – Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s as up-to-date as the earth when the sun comes up.

91 – Your Word and truth are dependable as ever; that’s what you ordered—you set the earth going.

92 – If your revelation hadn’t delighted me so, I would have given up when the hard times came.

93 – But I’ll never forget the advice you gave me; you saved my life with those wise words.

94 – Save me! I’m all yours. I look high and low for your words of wisdom.

95 – The wicked lie in ambush to destroy me, but I’m only concerned with your plans for me.

96 – I see the limits to everything human, but the horizons can’t contain your commands!

 

The KJV of 119:89 (very familiar) says: “FOR EVER, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”

Whatever is settled in heaven cannot, then, be changed on earth; it’s not subject to any other person’s opinion or beliefs. When something is settled, it’s set, settled, it is what it is.

When you know something is settled, you can give yourself all the way over to it; to resting in it and depending on it. You can take the limits off of it and let it come ‘all the way alive’, because you trust it.

So I say unto you, know God’s word is settled and that whatever He says goes. Trust in it; stand firm on it, and live by it.

2. Articulate with much clarity and specificity where you are today
3. Compare your vision with your reality
4. Ask yourself: “Do I love where I am (or who I am) today enough to stay here forever?”

Economic Injustice In the Black Community Is Our Problem to Solve

December 5, 2015
The title of this TED Talk doesn’t do it’s content justice. The presenter, Maggie Anderson, wants us to understand that the resolution to the problem of economic injustice in the black community must be resolved on a local level.
What’s needed to defeat economic injustice is something no political nor governmental person can (or ever will) do. The answer is within each individual in the community. Maggie shares some stats. On one end she says Asian dollars circulates within their community for 28 days before leaving. And on the other extreme, Black dollars circulated in the Black community for only 6 hours before leaving. What this means is as soooon as we get paid, we send that money right to another community, then our dollar circulates in that other community for however long it stays there. Hispanic dollars circulate 7 days in their communities; White communities, 17 days, and Jewish communities, 19 days.
I know we have many reasons why we don’t support black owned businesses as much as we could or should… I know and understand the struggle; we need to keep working on it.
