What Kept Me on my ‘RAW’ Course?
Ten years ago, I looked at the condition that my body was experiencing and I did not like what I saw. I saw myself ill for the first time in my life. I began to have adult acne, watery red itchy eyes, dry brittle hair and sagging skin. Not to mention, I was irritable, unhappy, lacked energy, and I was not sleeping very well. There has always been an edge of vanity in my personality. I did not look healthy and it was time to do something about it! I was determined to find the answers I needed to experience total wellness. I used to look at other people who had clear white sclera and wonder why my eyes were not like this. After all, this was the way God designed them. I knew at that moment, that if I could get my body to heal itself then I might have that chance to have beautiful eyes.
It did not take long for me to grasp that “we are what we eat”. I began to look at what I had been putting into my body. I began to look at how well I was chewing my food. I looked at how I was combining my food and how late I was eating. I noticed that simple lifestyle changes started to make a difference. I did a lot of research on my own and took classes to help me have a better understanding of nutrition. It helps to be a professional student who just loves to learn. Learning 80% of the immune system is in the gut, explained all the sinus issues and food allergies I had. I needed to allow my gut to heal after all the abuse over the years.
Raw green food, raw juices and good quality supplements started me on my path to healing. I will admit it was hard to walk by the bakery section in Whole Foods and not buy a “morning glory muffin.” I use to love those muffins. I had one almost every day! No wonder my colon was screaming! But when I thought about the clear white eyes I so much desired, I walked right on past. Determination is the key for anyone to get through a challenge. I made my mind up to reach that goal even though it was not right away. It took time. We live in a society that we want it NOW! This journey in my life taught me patience. After many years, I have finally mastered total wellness! More important, I am more in tune with my body. Now when people look at me they not only see my clear white eyes but they see a glow in my skin that only comes from eating live raw food nutrition. I am experiencing the true anti-aging formula! Come and join me!
