Our family has been embarking on a very exciting journey. We are getting high on raw!!!
Need a better way to use up some of those amazing garden zucchini's?!! Have I got some recipes for you!! These will be in my new menu planning e-book coming up!!! Let your mouth water!!
Oh, and as per my new book, here's a free tip:
You've heard that line, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". But in my house and in many others across the globe, this just isn't so.
Here are just some of the reasons:
I found this on my computer today after realizing my little spokesperson stole my camera. What a guy. I laughed pretty hard with all he had to say. Check it out:
In Part 1 of this article here:
you heard how important this was for our kids. Here you will get more practical advice on how to teach our kids to eat healthier.
Leafy Greens and other vegetables... go to any disease webpage even by Western medical standards and they will tell you it will prevent disease. But why don't we listen?
Ever wonder if all this talk about recovering Autism is fluff? Well you won't wonder after you've watched this:
Why wouldn't you believe it? Because all it takes is too simple to believe. It's not found in a pill or poison (aka: chemo - which is worse for most cases of cancer than actually helpful). It's not found in "simple" surgery or some doctor telling you what to do (although finding someone you trust will, indeed, help).
Are you ready for it??
It is found in one word, which Brian Clement speaks on so eloquently:
ETA - warning: Part 1 is a necessary but long rant. To skip the rant and get right to it, go here: http://insideout.tougas.net/node/325
"Health" - one of the most relative terms known to man. Here in North America, it's utter nonsense to even use the word. What we usually use the term for is to say we are not eating as bad as the 400 pounder who eats to ease the emotional pain of his past and now, his present.
So what does it mean and more importantly, what have we done to this generation of children that is causing them to be more diseased than any other generation before them in this Continent? Well, I believe it started with my grandparent's generation... but it's just. getting. worse.
Before you read on, I have to warn you. You might not like what I have to say. If you are not ready to make some giant changes in the way you feed your children, you might want to wait and come back when you're ready. I don't want you to hate me or what I have to say and that's exactly what might happen if you have thrown your hands up in the air and have given up on searching for truth. I have tried to fill this article with as much truth and as much information to help you see past the lies of our media, our government, and those responsible for "teaching/protecting" us for the health of our children. I might not even say it as gentle as you would like. I can be quite dogmatic. It's a weakness of mine but hey.... it's my blog and I can't pussy-foot my way about protecting those kids who don't have a voice inside some of your homes. I do not want to see them end up like my kids did (edit). In my thirties, I am appalled that if I ask ANY of my friends, they would all tell me how achy, how tired, how depressed, anxious, etc, etc, etc they are. In our THIRTIES!!! It's getting worse for our next generation and I'm here to say something about it.
The Hippocrates Diet is made up of approximately 50% sprouts. Have you heard of sprouts before? Maybe you've heard of mung beans found at your local store in a bag. Well, these aren't quite the sprouts I'm referring to. Sure, those are "technically" sprouts. Yet, a FAR cry from the sprouts you can make with minimal effort in your very own kitchen, costs pennies to grow, satisfies your cravings, and offers more nutrition than the BEST of all dark leafy greens!
I have been down this path, as you know, for a very long time. I have tried many things and it was all beneficial for its own reasons. Every path you are on, hopefully brings you to a new and deeper path. One that takes you through a journey of learning and better life - and health.
Okay, a bit of a cheesy title, I know. But, when I was thinking of what to title this one, "the "straw" that broke the camels back" was the first thing that popped in my mind. What WAS that "straw"? Well, it was RAW!!
Listen, I've been down a seemingly long and frustrating road with my son who has autism. He has always been high functioning and for this I am grateful. The things I KNOW and am quite confident in is how lower functioning he would be if we didn't choose this path. After my last blog entry, I need to remind myself of this all the time. What WERE those things that kept him from slithering down a much deeper, more slippery slope? Well, I'm glad you asked.
I've been asked this question more times than I have cared to. I get it. Especially since our latest knock on a very sick door. :( But there's something you have to know before you judge healthy eating. I've heard a couple people dismiss healthy eating because of looking at our family struggle through elimination diets and still ending up with sick children. But I have a secret. And I'm about to share it with you now.
THIS IS EXTRAORDINARY!
You know, I have a story as to how God led me to homeopathy. It isn't grand or emotive. Simply that one after another, my world was directed toward this path in the past couple of months. The only history I've had with homeopathy was one of teething pills and inducing labour - both of which I chalked up to "coincidence" when anything DID seem to occur. I am a skeptic after all.
I have recently discovered homeopathy. I have yet to treat my son, who has Autism, but I am presently treating my younger son, who has recently acquired an autoimmune, vasculitis disease known as Henoch Schonlein Purpura. It is a fairly rare disease but not unknown to most pediatricians. This has caused our family to shift focus. Autism is no longer in the forefront and autoimmune disease, which I believe autism is a form of, has now become the main research.
So much to say... such lack of motivation, energy, time, and purpose to come on here and say it. So for those who still have me on your "hit-list" of blogs to read, I apologize. What I will say is this, "life is grand". No truly. We are in a new phase of our lives and although financially, we are not where we would like to be, our hearts are full and are visions are plenty.
See the Forbes Top Ten List of Biggest Companies recently? It's quite revealing. Almost every one of the top ten companies either deal with oil, finance those who deal with oil, or insure them.
Do you often wonder why we are so "dependent" on oil in this world? I may not exactly know whether the chicken or the egg came first. But, I sure as well know who now controls the coop. *Sigh*
...that the gluten we eat today is NOT good for humans... well, these last few years have convinced me over, and over, and over, and...
So, MORE wasted energy, time, money, lives... Yet ANOTHER study, pouring MILLIONS of dollars into, to tell us they still. just. don't. know...
