I wrote this while I was pregnant. I gave birth shortly afterward so I didn't post until now. I hope if you read this you read it and give it some serious thought.
I have had a few things on my mind for a while. Unfortunately, they are not widely accepted or very popular. But, I have experienced what I am about to talk about first hand and know that they work. I am not a medical doctor in any respect, but I am a human being with common sense. Common sense has become very rare these days. Too many times we just follow what the main-stream media feeds us to be truth. We do as we are told, or rather how we are programmed. But that's not what I am getting into today. I am getting into another subject. I am going to talk about health.
About one year ago, my mother died of cancer treatments. Notice I didn't say cancer. She died from the treatments. There are those that would argue with me or who would say that I am just grieving and looking for a reason or something to blame. Truth is, I am very calm about the subject and know what I know because I have seen it. Before I get into my mothers death (I told you, not a popular subject), I want to go back to a couple years ago prior to her passing.
When I learned that my mother had cancer, I was devastated. However, I never was of the mind set that she would die. I was sad because I knew she was going to go through a lot of hardships. I knew there were going to be a lot of doctor appointments, tests and treatments that she would have to endure. I wanted it to be easy on her. So, my husband and I began to learn about the subject. What we found changed our outlook on life forever.
Your body can heal itself. Sounds crazy, right? Yeah, I know it does. So much of the time we are told that we have to go to a doctor to take care of this or that. But for a lot of things, most in fact, we can heal ourselves. Again, I am not a medical doctor. This is what I believe from my own experience. So, before you get all upset and want to write to me and tell me how horribly wrong I am, read more and listen to what I have to say.
We heal! Crazy as it sounds, its true. After about a year of research into health and cancer my husband and I came up with this simple idea. Everything starts in your stomach. Yeah, in your stomach. You have to eat your way to good health. I witnessed that about a year before my mother died. I saw a quick visual of what eating healthy can do for a person. I knew someone who had an itchy rash on the back of their hand for over six months. After eating raw organic fruits and vegetables only for three days, the rash that no creams or gimmicks or medicine could get rid of disappeared. Three days of eating very healthy got rid of something that had been there for over half a year. I told you, crazy! But it worked. We were amazed and started to change our diets. Not completely at first. Let's face it, when you have been doing one thing and thinking one way your whole life, it is very hard to change overnight. You have to completely readjust your life and the way you look at things.
So, we started eating mostly raw organic fruits and vegetables. We would still go out and eat non-organic foods when we were socializing, but when it's the two of us, we just about always eat organic. Now, why are we hung up on organic? Well, it goes back to all the cancer research that we were doing. Have you ever stopped to think about how many people you knew who had cancer 20, 30, 40 or more years ago? Not many I would assume. Not nearly as many as there are today. Why is that? What the hell is going on? Why is there suddenly an epidemic of cancer in this nation? Well, have you ever read the ingredients of foods that you put into your body? Most are not what I would call good for you. There are so many pesticides, preservatives, additives, hormones and others nasty things that are put into all our so called normal food (even though they are more chemical than food and organic should just be called normal food instead because all it is 100% food). And its not just food that is the problem. Scientists have now found the chemicals found in deodorant and other skin care products in breast cancer cells. Hmm, so the products that we put on the largest organ of our bodies, which is our skin, affects us. So, it's the inside and the outside that counts. They work together. And I know you have all heard that things like aspartame cause cancer. And I have heard so many people say "yeah well, it's just a little bit and so I can handle it, its not a big deal". Well, that would be true. If it was just a little bit, it wouldn't hurt you really. But when you add it to all the other cancer causing chemicals in foods, skin products and other environmental things that do cause cancer and you add them all together you get an epidemic just like we are seeing now. But it's safer in our minds to not address it and not admit it to ourselves. Maybe we think it will just go away or maybe we think that if we don't admit it to ourselves, then we can blame someone or something else for the ones we lost.
For the past two years, I have been sick twice. I know you are thinking, "See, she promotes eating organic and living healthy and she still gets sick." Well, before you think you have won the argument, let me tell you about those two times.
The first was December 2010. I was told my mother had 3 days left to live and I needed to get up to her home to see her and say my goodbyes. My mother ended up living an extra 2 months. I will get to that soon, I promise. So, I drove up to Oregon with my husband and we went to see her. We ended up staying over a month helping take care of her. At one point, I started feeling a bit off. I had a bit of a runny nose and my throat was scratchy. I knew I was about to come down with a cold. I also knew that I had not been eating well since I got up there. My parents and the rest of my family were not of the same mindset as my husband and I. They had some food products that were organic, but they still ate a lot of non organic food from the regular grocery store and a lot of processed foods and fast food. So, going with the flow, I was eating that non organic food too. So, I started to get sick. Of course, I wasn't the only one. Several other members of my family were also coming down with the same thing. My solution was to load up with water, hydrosol silver (1 teaspoon every hour in a glass of water) lots of organic fruits and vegetables (we found a store nearby to get some good produce from) and rest. I did not take any cough medicine or any pain relievers for my achy body or headaches which come with having a lousy cold. I instead had tea with organic honey, willows bark and lemon. I was feeling fine the next day. The rest of my family continued to buy over the counter medicines to treat themselves and to drink soda and eat processed foods. They were sick for the next three weeks.
The next time was not too long after. I went home for some work related obligations in January 2011. When I got home, I was exhausted. I had been staying up alot of nights watching over my mother, and I was stressed out because of what we were all going through. Stress has a great impact on your health. I find that the more stressed I am, the easier it has been my whole life to get sick. When I am positive and taking care of myself, well, I just don't get sick. So, at this point, I was tired and stressed. But on top of that, I was working a convention and I was again not eating right or taking care of myself. I was tired, run down and eating bad food again. Oh, I admit that so called normal food tastes good, but it's not really worth feeling horrible over. So, I got sick. Again, I loaded up on the healthy products I did at my parents' house and I again was quickly healed.
There was almost a third time. I say almost. About 8 months later my husband and I were at some friends' house and they were all sick. They were miserable and you could feel the sickness in the air. It was pretty gross. So, as soon as we left we started to feel the itchiness in our throats and could feel ourselves starting to get sick. But we knew better at this point. We went out and got ourselves some organic fruit. We ate strawberries and downed a lot of water. Immediately we felt better. In fact, we felt fine. We never got sick. Our friends were not so lucky. They remained sick for quite some time. They also went to the doctors and loaded up on pharmaceuticals. Didn't work out for them.
So, this brings me back to my original point. If you want to be healthy, you need to start with what you put in and on your body. Food is the best and most effective way I can think of to be a healthier version of you. Being healthy in what you eat can help with so many things in your life. Not only can it keep you feeling good but it can keep you looking good and keep your mood in high spirits as well.
Now some more personal stuff. Like I said earlier, my mom was told by doctors that she had three days to live. My husband and I drove up immediately, and on the way we stopped at some healthy stores and picked up several items for a full body cleanse. We also ordered several other items and had them shipped to my parents' house. Again, we had been doing research for years on cancer and natural treatments. We didn't make up this treatment that we were going to give my mother. We actually got it from a cancer institute in Germany. Fortunately for Americans, you can still get natural cancer treatments in other countries. Here it is not allowed. Why you ask? Well, a doctor could lose his license for prescribing natural remedies. If you went to your doctor and it was found out you had scurvy (caused by a vitamin C deficiency) that doctor legally could not prescribe you to go eat an orange. It costs hundreds of millions of dollars to get a pharmaceutcial approved. A natural treatment can not be patented, so why would anyone put in hundreds of millions of dollars for something that they could not patent and could not make a profit on. Natural works
.it just doesn't have the budget.
So, we were given this recipe of sorts from the cancer center in Germany. We then started to give it immediately to my mother. She was unable to get out of bed. She was dehydrated when we got there because the hospital that she just came home from didn't think to give her an IV. She was unable to drink or to hardly move on her own. She was very unaware of her surroundings and was in a morphine induced fog. So, like I said, we started right away. We gave her a full body cleanse and loaded her up with nutrition. I know it sounds weird
fighting cancer with nutrition, but that's what we did. My mom made it past the three days.
Now, we were fighting against two years of radiation and chemo therapies, both of which cause cancer. That's like saying
hey, that person has a bullet in them, let's take this gun and shoot the bullet out of them. It just doesn't make a lot of sense. In fact, now it has been found that radiation creates even stronger more aggressive cancer cells then normal cancer cells. But modern medicine and doctors are swearing up and down that this is the way to go. I do not believe it is. Another friend of mine had cancer. She was stage four just like my mother. She was also given the same speeches that my mother was given. "You have 4-6 months to live. We recommend you do these treatments. They aren't a cure, but this is what we would have our family members do," My friend got fed up, moved away to get some peace and quiet, changed her diet to all organic and got rid of all the other chemicals in her life. She is now cancer free and in better health then before she was diagnosed. Another friend of mine's mother also came down with cancer. After some research she had her mother change her diet and lifestyle. Her mother is now cancer free. And that cancer institute in Germany where I got my treatment recipe, they have over 30000 cases of curing cancer on record. Curing is the word
.not treating. I don't want to be treated for something. Treatment means that you are just dealing with the symptoms. I want to get to the root of the problem and fix that. I want the cure. And yeah, cancer was cured 50 or 60 years ago. Scientists found that cancer can not live in an oxygen rich alkaline environment, and received the nobel prize. And yet there are so many pleas from people to find a cure. It's out there. We just have to look.
So, back to my mother. She was not in good shape at all. She was on the edge of death when we got there. In fact, I believe if we did nothing, she would have passed in those three days. But we didn't just sit there. We loaded her up with nutrients and started her on a full body cleanse to get all the toxins and chemicals out of her that modern medicine had pumped into her over the past two years. That's a lot of drugs. Plus, as I said, she was not very aware of her surroundings and she was extremely dehydrated. Both of which made it very hard for her to swallow. So, we fed her through a medicine dropper. Well, after a week, my mom started to come out of her fog. We convinced my family to lower the amount of morphine my mom was getting. We couldn't convince them to stop it all together. My mom did have severe stomach pain. That's where all the chemicals had trapped and created new cancer, in her stomach and intestines. However when we gave her the natural treatment, she was able to flush out some of the horrible junk that was lodged in her intestines. That lessened her pain a great deal. About two weeks into it, my father called the doctor to see about getting an IV out at the house for my mother. She was still having a hard time drinking. It was far better than it was when we got there, but we knew if we could get her even more hydrated, she would recover faster. The doctor refused saying it was better for to die of dehydration then to die of cancer. Have you ever learned about how you die of dehydration? It is excruciating and a horrible way to die. Plus, the doctor added, she will be dead within the next day or so anyway. This is coming from a man who hadn't seen her since we was discharged weeks earlier and had said the same thing then. Wasn't he at all curious about how she was living so much longer then he predicted? Could it be that he was not correct in his diagnosis? So, we said to heck with it all. My husband sat at my mothers beside all night and almost force fed her the nutrients and water that she so desperately needed. What did we have to lose? After that, she fell asleep and slept for almost a day. She woke up in the middle of the next night and was actually talking. She hadn't had a clear conversation since we got there. Not only that, but she wanted to get up and out of bed. Still too weak and not able to move her left side from all the strokes that she had over the last few months due to the trauma from surgery on her brain (for tests to see what the mass was there) and the chemicals that they pumped her with to combat the seizures that the brain surgery had caused, she needed to be lifted and carried out of bed. My husband is a good man. He picked her up and carried her to her wheel chair and then wheeled her out to the living room and then out to a comfy recliner. She was out with her family again after weeks in a hospital bed in her bedroom. It was such a wonderful moment having us all out in the family room again almost like normal. After a while she grew tired and needed to go back to bed. So, we wheeled her back and put her back into bed. But before she went to sleep, she gave me a hug and told me how much she loved me and how proud she was of me. I would not have had that moment had my husband and I listened to the doctor.
Over the next few weeks, my mom would want to get up every day and go out to the living room. The nurses that came to check on her and to help with her bedding were amazed and told us to keep doing whatever it was that we were doing. She was talking and interacting with everyone. It was like she was coming back from the dead.
My husband and I had to go home for a few days to keep our home in order and to keep our bills paid and to do some actual work. We had been at my parents' house for over a month at this point. We needed to go home for a bit. I told my mom I would be back soon and I loved her. We dashed on home and went back to work for a couple weeks (Bills always get in the way). While we were gone, my mom reverted back to not drinking and not taking in the nutrients. Again she became dehydrated and the cancer which was being fought so much with all the stuff that we were putting into her was now free to take over. On February 1st 2011, my mom lost her battle to modern medicine cancer treatments.
I was devastated and completely depressed. For months I found very little joy in anything. I was still working and still doing what I needed to do. I never gave up on life, but I just was not happy. I was angry too because I knew that what we were doing up there with my mom was working. It gave me my mom back for a short time when the doctors said that she was gone.
Many people know that I am about to give birth to my first child. This is something that my mother really wanted. She wanted so badly for me to have a baby. So for over a year I tried to get pregnant. I wanted her to see her granddaughter. But no matter what I did, I could not get pregnant. So, after a couple months of mourning, my husband and I decided to do the exact same cleanse that we were giving my mother. Do you really think I would pump something into another person that I would not give to myself? We did the full body cleanse and that first month I was pregnant. Who knows what junk and chemicals were stored up in my body. Think about it, I had 29 years worth of chemicals in me. And how many women do you know now that are having a hard time conceiving? Was this the case 20, 30 40 plus years ago? I am convinced it is the nutrition (or lack of). We are putting things into our bodies now that we were not meant to take in. It is making us sick. It is keeping us from having kids in some cases and in a lot of cases, it is killing us.
I am not going to say to be a vegetarian or a vegan or a carnivore. I know plenty of each who are sick all the time. And I am not saying to eat so called healthy food. I am saying to eat organic. If you like pizza, pasta, sweets, cheeseburgers, or whatever, that's fine. Eat all that, just make sure you are eating organic ingredients. We are made to eat meat and vegetables alike. Just make sure that is what you are eating. Not the chemicals. My husband has dropped a lot of weight and we eat constantly, including ice cream. I have not dropped a ton of weight, but then again I am 9 months pregnant right now.
Many people that I know have refused this idea. Some because it sounds too simple to be true, and others because they think that organic is too costly. Well, simple is not necessarily wrong. Just because it is simple doesn't mean it won't work. And as for the cost, well I have two thoughts on that. Number one is, which would you rather spend your money on? Food or doctor bills? And two, you don't eat as much when you are eating real food. I notice that whenever we go out and eat so called "normal" food, I eat way more. Why? Well, there is very little nutrition in them. So my body keeps telling me to keep eating so that I get the nutrition that I need from a meal. When I eat organic, I get what I need because it is real food. So, your grocery bill stays the same. Yes you are spending the same for less food. But that is all you need to eat. So isn't that the same? And it's not like I am hungry after eating organic. I am just full faster.
I have read and researched and listened to so many experts on this issue. Eating right can help you with so many health issues. Like I said before, it can help you not only feel better but also look better. Just think about that rash that my friend had. It was gone in three days when modern medicine could not do in over six months. If you want to know some of my sources and want to know where I got my information, I am very happy to pass it along. I wrote this because I want my experiences to help others. I do not want another person losing someone that they love simple because they were not aware of the options out there. Please do not be bullied by scare tactics that the medical professionals seem to want to wrangle us in with. Everyone is scared of pain and loss. It's so easy to manipulate with those things. But, you have choices and you have options. Start by taking better care of yourself. Yes, so called normal food is convenient, but is it really convenient when you start to really get sick because of it? I have no doubt that everyone is constantly fighting cancer. I believe that we all have it to some degree. Cancer is all the bad stuff that our bodies store up to deal with later when we have so much bad junk constantly coming into our bodies. It's like that pile of stuff on your table or desk that you will get to later when you have time.
And real food tastes better! Yes, it does! I swear. Since I have changed my diet, I taste so many more flavors in my foods than I ever did before. My palette is no longer dulled by the chemicals that I used to find so appealing. I can not stand fast food any more. I used to love chicken mcnuggets. Now they taste horrible to me. I have unclogged my taste buds and know the difference between real food and food that has been flavored with addictive chemicals that make me think that its good. Yeah, I said it. Addictive chemicals are added to cheap food so that people think that they like it. I am not going to go into that right now. There are so many aspects to this that I would be here writing a book before I got even half of it out. I really just wanted to write down my thoughts and my experiences so that people out there would some how feel inclined to take a look at their own health and maybe make a difference in their lives.
The bottom line of this all is, we are made to heal but we need to stop putting junk into our systems and jamming ourselves up! Its like putting the right oil into our cars. You put in the wrong oil and it just doesn't work right. So, put the right things into your bodies. Stop going to the doctor for every little cold or flu you have. Putting in more chemicals will not be good for you in the long run. Let your body heal itself. It's what is it made to do.
