Things have been working out great for me recently.
I discovered intermittent fasting, and I do my best to eat 5 out of 7 days of the week.
Ever since I started fasting (while getting highly judgmental stares) My symptoms improve drastically! I can BREATHE! My neck isn't nearly as stiff, and if I fast long enough some parts of my body stop hurting.
But then I get weak and I eat sugar and they go right back to it.
I tell myself, "This is very serious all these issues you are having you need to consume only the best fruits, vegetables, juices, water and herbs until you fully recover, and you can breathe normally again. Sugar lowers your immune response and it's an inflammatory-"
And it just keeps going on and on. I value my health so much now.
My only regret is that I realized it when I'm sick.
I do my best to listen to myself though. I don't really eat candy anymore, and now it's believable for me to turn down soda, or sugar in drinks entirely.
I eat pickled garlic, drink tart cherry juice, and I drink a lot of Naked smoothies (they are amazing). Occasionally I take raw honey put it in my water with lemon juice.
And when my heart acts up and scares me, I take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and it calms tremendously.
But now some of the people I love and care about in my life are also falling ill. I'm on my way to better health as I can feel it, but whenever I try to urge to try something other than traditional medicine, it's hard.
I want everyone to feel better. to be on the yellow brick road to better health like I'm walking. How all the research I've done has helped me, and I worry day to day about them, even if they claim it's not serious. (Which I have no proof it is, and it might not but I still worry.)
I know you can't just walk up to someone and tell them "Stop eating it's good for you" but the fact is, it helps me! It helps me and I don't know why people can't see that. I don't see why people don't even want to try it. I'm not asking for starvation. A two day cleanse every week is so beneficial it helps you live longer. It expels viruses from the body, it revitalizes brain cells, boots your immune system, it does so much just because your digestive system isn't working to digest food, so the body heals itself naturally!
Your heart can produce new cardiovascular cells.
Just like your brain (as apposed to the stereotype you can't) , your digestive tract, your liver, and much much more. Your body is your best weapon! All it needs is the right ammo, and you will be able to fight for whatever health issues you are having.
What's the point of having all this helpful, revitalizing health knowledge if no one wants to drink the water? (Aquarius reference I'm an Aquarius, ha)
I'm not panicking. But my concerns are still ever present, and I just pray that the people who are ill will recover to full health, even if they don't try any of the information I have to share with them. My goal is not to be right. My goal is to help.
I am not bashing traditional medicine. But do not use them if they have failed you, much like me. But at the same time do not use an alternative to what traditional medicine can't fix, if you have a very very good doctor.
I would love to say that I trust the medical field...I would adore that.
But they gave me medicine to cover up my symptoms. They never gave me anything to help solve the problem of it...
In short do what's best for you. I just so happen to be healing on the alternative side, and I feel so at peace that I'll be alright. My heart is strong. I am strong, and with my journey I can prove to others that they can be strong too.
To all the people who aren't feeling well, I love you all so dearly. I will pray to god you'll be just fine and I'm chewing my fingers to stubs for nothing.
As for the lot of you reading, I love you too. Don't be afraid to search for answers. Because as those who search, they will find, and those who knock, the door will open.
