So let's get started...
My Journey to learning about Healthy, Whole & Living Foods
As a child, I was chronically ill; the flu, ear infections, colds - the list goes on. I grew up on what I would consider to be an unhealthy diet, consisting of too much processed foods, some home cooked meals, and lots of sugar. I was a very picky eater with little to no appetite. Fast forward to my late teenage & young adult years where I was still suffering from health issues and major menstrual problems, but my largest concern was my acne. My acne became a part of me, so over the years I learned how to cover up the spots on my face with make-up, and to wear concealing clothing for my chest/back acne. If my readers have had acne, you then understand the emotional damage acne causes, in addition to the physical – it can be heart-breaking. My struggle went on for years. My history taking birth control, antibiotics, etc offered virtually no help and my constant fight against the spots/bumps/cysts continued. One day I had enough, and my frustration brought me to the web, desperately searching for acne solutions, remedies, anything! I came across an acne forum where people were discussing a link between their cystic acne, and dairy. At the time I was a huge dairy consumer – I enjoyed it multiple times per day. I decided to begin experimenting, starting with removing the dairy - it worked! My cystic acne eruptions stopped, yay! I began switching to soy cheese, mylk, etc. and my cystic acne came back, therefore my search continued and I then learned about the issues with consuming soy (especially GMO and non-fermented). Eventually progression kept me searching for ways to eat and live naturally, in alignment with nature. This evolution carried me to raw foods, living foods and to the fruitarian lifestyle - I love it all! It’s been quite the journey and I have acquired much wisdom along the way. At this point on my journey, I now understand the importance of being consistent to achieve balance. To eat and live in a way that is good for your mind, body, soul and sustainable to support the health of your constitution. If you struggle to endure a way of eating/living, then keep searching for your balance. My intentions for this space is to bring you knowledge, education, alternative healing, etc., so that you can discover new elements to create your healthiest self, ever! You are the only one that is the guru of your temple. While there are some great fundamentals that most of us can apply, it’s important to also consider that we are different, meaning where we are with our own health, our situations, and so forth. I myself am living on a plant based foods, mostly raw/living, and am feeling generally good. I too still have my own struggles – no one is perfect. We grow, evolve, and learn from sharing. This is the main purpose of this blog. Let us create a safe, positive, healthy, educational and loving place for all of our readers and contributors.
I can't wait to share, learn and meet you all.
Get your glow on!
