Stop Making Yourself Sick

This is what my husband and I are able to have on our dates.  We have a small thai resturants that knows our dietary needs.  They have made a dish especially for us with instructions - so we can order whenever we want, this same thing.  (They even make a specific key to type in for servers, just for us)  It's called the "Rama Garden" and it's simply steamed chicken and veggies. (although I can't have the rice, my husband has some).  We bring our organic, gluten-free soy sauce - and it's out "treat".

This is what my husband and I are able to have on our dates. We have a small Thai restaurant that knows our dietary needs. They have made a dish especially for us with instructions – so we can order whenever we want, and know they will get it right. (They even make a specific key to type in for servers, just for us) It’s called the “Rama Garden” and it’s simply steamed chicken and veggies made separately from their other foods. (although I can’t have the rice, my husband has some). We bring our organic, gluten-free soy sauce – and it’s our “treat”.

No really. Stop it.

Do you realize that the choices you’re making everyday could be making you very SICK and you’re looking in the wrong places to be well again?

This weekend I read of yet another (young) person, from my old home town, with a “rare auto immune disease” who very quickly fell ill and is now hospitalized and on chemotherapy in one of the nation’s TOP medical facilities in the nation. What in the WORLD is going on?

I’ll tell you what is going on – it’s toxin overload… and a majority of it is in the food we put in our mouths everyday. The disease begins in our GUT.

A year ago I watched the documentary, “Hungry for Change” (available to watch on Netflix or free online until March 31, 2013), and while in the middle of my own battle for health, it struck enough of a cord with me to never desire soda again and look deeper and what food was doing to me.

Once I realized that soda was being chemically “created” to manipulate my brain – I was done.

I knew it was addictive. I thought I had the upper hand…

But it was also too late for me…. and I’m pretty sure I’ve drunk less soda than most in my lifetime. I really didn’t drink soda much soda until I had my 4th child, 9 years ago. I didn’t drink diet soda until I got diabetes (and those lovely nutritionists suggested I drink diet pop? How do they keep their jobs?). So, all the while KNOWING diet pop, and soda was bad for me – I still drank it. I ignored the warnings.

But, now that it’s killed my hormone levels and caused adrenal fatigue, you bet I speak up to others who are drinking it. I want more for them and I pray they can learn from my mistakes.

What is adrenal fatigue? (read more about this here) It’s that “fight or flight” feeling you get when you are stressed. If your body is malfunctioning and missing key vitamins, enzymes and amino acids – it goes into “dump mode” instead… and you get a “downer” feeling – or a hopeless/helpless feeling instead. You body makes you “tired” so you are forced to rest… and it contributes to chronic fatigue (those with auto immune diseases struggle with).

The good news is – it’s able to be reversed and worked on if you catch it soon enough!! It’s why I take glutathione, CoEnzyme 10 and my Adapten all supplements.

How about those JUNK oils I talked about a few weeks ago here. They are one the MAJOR reasons we don’t eat out, other than obviously a dangerous gluten cross contamination.

What do you think restaurants are saturating your food with? Chemically created CANOLA oil and the addictive enhanced excitotoxin – MSG. Headaches and chronic inflammation anyone? Yes, that’s why you feel so poorly after eating out the night after.

Sadly we learned last week that Chick-fil-a is putting upwards of 108 ingredients into their chicken , 2 types of MSG alone. (I’m not wondering why I got super sick the last time we went there…)

Seriously – Does plain, grilled CHICKEN need ingredients? It does to preserve it and make it addictive. (and no wonder those fries were so good in the canola oil!) Yuck.

It made it an easy choice to say – NO MORE.

It’s simply not an option.

Easy? No. God never said it would be easy – but we have options in this country. We have to make choices.

It’s sad this is how we have to choose to live in our country – that our country, that is SO developed in so many ways – is failing our people with poor food “products” and dining options and medical care “answers” that aren’t making people well.

It’s sickening, really.

You have a choice, just like we do – and you are the one that has to choose what you’re going to put in your body.

As for me and my house. We shall serve the Lord, and do our best, as we learn more – to take care of what He gave us.

Healthy for Him.

“My flesh and my heart may fail,

but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

Psalm 73:26

  1. I’ve been reading your blogs for a few months now. I’ve finally admitted, after a bulimia diagnosis, fibro and chronic fatigue diagnosis, a gastric bypass and suicidal depression and 8 ongoing prescriptions, that maybe the American medical community as well as the food industry is majorly flawed. While the medication allows me to get out of bed in the morning, I am now aware that simply functioning is not enough and that health can be attained before its to late. I saw a naturapath last week. After 12 vials of blood and two urine samples and a hard hit on my pocketbook, I am awaiting results. It’s a mindset now as I have to be willing to give up my food addiction of 40+ years. May God bless you as you are diligent to share your path and knowledge!

  2. Wow Lori, you have been through SO much. It’s tough to come face to face with things and realize we can DO something, vs. feel helpless/hopeless. GOOD FOR YOU! That’s a huge step in the right direction. It’s such a shame that true help has to hit the pocketbook so hard. That’s a HUGE flaw in the system, and why many stay sick!

  3. AMEN– AMEN– AMEN— PREACH IT SISTER!!! SO GLAD YOU ARE SHARING THE TRUTH IS SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS!!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!

  4. That’s a ton of chicken ingredients!

  5. Crazy isn’t it? It boggles my mind why I ate this way for so long and accepted it as food for my body?! We do better when we know better.
