Nutrition That Supports Healing in Fibromyalgia, Lupus, and CFS

I published an article in AC content recently where I am a featured writer in the alternative medicine and healtha and wellness categories. It is how changing to a living foods diet will help your body to overcome these auto immune disorders. I am an herbalist but have some genetic weaknesses where I use these steps.

I know how difficult it is because I have been through it. I had a accident some years back and did not have health insurance. I fell off outside steps, no railing, backwards onto a wrought iron plant stand. I was in incredible pain and reflecting back should have gone to emergency. I used alternative medicine to get through the pain  and to promote healing. Even with that, the accident caused a permanent compromise of kidney function. I use Esseac and alternative medicine to support my kidney and liver function. I do know how hard it is to get things done and take care of business when you are fighting with health problems.  I am going to list the link to the article below: I know it will help in the path to getting and staying well.

God Bless You,

The Down Side of Coffee -Withdrawal Migraines

Years ago I drank coffee until it caused an ulcer. I have drunk coffee in almost 15 years. For those of you who do not consider it an addiction, I challenge you to stop drinking it for 3 days. I say this after visiting my friend who I really care about but who drinks about 6 cups a day. She takes an Excedrin at 3 am because it has caffeine and it staves off a caffeine withdrawal headache. 

Well she called me this morning to ask if I would give her some help. She took her Excedrin at 4 am and then experienced burning pain in her stomach. I had warned her often about how hard that stuff is on her stomach. Since she had stomach pain, she couldn't drink her coffee. Within a couple of hours she had a blinding headache, was sick at her stomach, and had been throwing up. She was in a full coffee-caused migraine. I did what I could but at this stage nothing helped her. I looked in on her over the day and this evening she is still sick with a blinding headache. 

Coffee and pain relievers are all acid and hard on the stomach lining. Taking coffee and Excedrin on a empty stomach is an assault on your digestive system. You can end up in the hospital with an ulcer and bleeding in the stomach. Sooner or later your stomach is going to give you pain.

So what can you do to get off coffee. The easiest method is gradually over several weeks. Each week, drop a half cup until you get down to one or two cups. If you can cut it out entirely, that is even better. There are some herbal formulations that contain slippery elm and wild yam. These herbs help to coat the irritated stomach lining and help heal it. Drink green tea instead.

What can you do to wake up in the morning? I hit the shower first. That is my blessing to start the day. I then go out and feed my chickens and check out the hummingbirds. The next step is to walk the dogs who are dancing around the living room to get going. When I get home I make a drink either cold or hot with liquid green tea, licorice, gotu kola, and a bit of honey. These are all liquid extracts. The only thing I add to this is a Moringa tea bag. This drink really helps me get going without caffeine.  Its a mind set to do these things to get me going versus coffee. 

I challenge you to cut back your coffee for better health.

God Bless you all!

Easy Ways To Use Moringa Leaf Bulk Powder

There are many ways to use Moringa bulk powder. I use it in a green drink every morning. I bought one of those drink shaker bottles which I love and is much easier to clean than a blender.

  • I put 8 ounces of cranberry juice, a tablespoon of Spirulina, a tablespoon of New Suns Life Force, and a tablespoon of Moringa bulk powder. 

  • I also put in a couple of tablespoons of fiber powder. I shake it for about a min and it makes enough for both my husband and I.  

  • I also either use the fresh Moringa leaves or a tsp of the powder in hot tea. You can add the Moringa to Sleeptime Tea as well. This is great to help turn off your brain so you get some sleep.

  • Another way is to put a 1/2 tsp of Moringa powder into applesauce or homemade yogurt. That is great. 

  • I also add the powder or fresh leaf to scrambled eggs as well.

You will find that you get more done when you bring Moringa into your daily regimen. It builds health and energy.

Hope these ideas inspire you to get some Moringa into your daily regimen. It is a great organic food!
