Wow, we made it to 2014. Does anyone know what happened to 2013? It was almost a blur. The old saying rings true, “as you get older, time flies”.
Everyone’s going to be talking about New Year’s Resolutions, so we may as well too. Have you decided what yours will be for this New Year?
I have narrowed mine down to two, but they are all encompassing and I feel they are attainable. I hate to hear people make these far reaching goals that are impossible. So please dear friends, don’t make that mistake.
My first, and I feel the most important goal for 2014, is to spend more time with my Creator. He, after all, has the plan for my life. He holds the key to my success. He has always been there for me and promises that He will never let me down. I would be a fool to not make HIM priority in my daily living. Yes, HIS name is JESUS, HE is my savior, redeemer, counselor, and friend. HE has given me the greatest gift of all, the precious HOLY SPIRIT, to guide me, teach me, and comfort me through each and every day. It has not always been easy, but HE has always comforted me and guided me through the rough spots in life.
Secondly, I desire to be the best me I can be. Defined by a healthier and a happier me. And as I spend more time with the LORD, HE will teach me how to be healthier and happier. The saying is true, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine”. Having been a Registered Nurse, working in the hospital and home care field for 25 years, I have seen first hand how good health promotes over all well being and happiness. So, I am going to share some health tips which I have learned and experienced, or know of others experiencing over these 25 years.
Let me strongly communicate that everyone should do their own due diligence and seek what is best for them. I am not instructing anyone to stop his or her medications or take anything on my word. Just sharing some Nursing knowledge that I have seen first hand. Actually, my daughter suggested that I share some of the things that I have learned throughout my years of study in my blog.
It concerns me where the medical field is going when I see patients taking 15 to 20 drugs and continue to have the same disease or illness even noticing that one drug constitutes the need for more drugs to alleviate the side effects from the other drugs. It seems to be a vicious cycle. I have had patients tell me when I recommend trying vitamins and minerals that their doctor warned them not to take vitamins. Comments like this, fuel both my passion and concerns.
Hundreds of years ago we used a more Holistic approach when treating people. Medical treatments consisted of more natural herbs, spices, and home remedies. Then, along came the Rockefeller’s and took over the medical colleges and moved their people onto the boards. Then, they were able to govern what was being taught. They also own and control the Pharmaceutical companies along with many other elite’s. Do the math. And go and research for more in depth studies. The elite have through the years also quenched the revelation many have found for cures for cancer, diabetes and other diseases. Their goal is to use medicine to treat symptoms, but never find a cure. Doctor’s are taught in school to give more medications; therefore, generating more money for the elite who own all the pharmaceutical companies. On every prescription is a number that is input at pharmacy which gives the physician a bonus, kick back, whatever you want to call it. It has been said, physicians spend very little time in Medical school, studying nutrition, but I hope that I am wrong.
Having said all that, which I felt needed to be shared, and that is just the tip of the iceberg, let me share a few things today to set the stage. Wow, there are so many directions I can go with this, where to begin? First, let me say the reason I have directed my blog toward sharing a few tips on health is my daughter recently had some digestive problems—which constituted the removal of her gall bladder. And now she lives happily ever after—NOT! Her problems in digestion continued. So, I gave her some digestive enzymes (just basic enzymes) and as of now, her problems have stopped. If she had started them before, the surgery may have been avoided. None of her doctors even recommended any type of natural enzymes. This is not the first case I have heard of this, so I am alerting everyone, please consider studying about taking some digestive enzymes. Because of our processed and tainted food supply, we do not get the proper digestive enzymes in our diet anymore. Insufficient enzyme production is the root of all tummy problems.
I have a friend who owns a Health Food store who has shared with me his own story of health. Battling diabetes and only 40 years of age, my friend was given only 6 months to live. He is now in his 70’s. But, one of the main things he did was start taking digestive enzymes. He has studied many natural health remedies and has even healed himself of cancer by taking nitric oxide. We will discuss this at some other time, but you may want to look into it as well. Again, I am not recommending anyone stop your medical care, it is your choice. You are solely responsible for the decisions you make for your health. He knew a lot about the radiation and chemotherapy side effects and decided to do the healing on his own and was successful.
I like to talk with successful healthy people. I am not promoting this site only, but I do get a lot of information here and recommend it to be a part of your Health library. If you have any of these symptoms, I recommend that you go and read the link I am posting. Constipation, cramping, flatulence, bloating, belching, heartburn and acid reflux. Find out more about the digestive enzymes and if you need them. You can buy them at any health food store as well. I am not promoting this site as a place to purchase, although I have purchased several things here. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/08/21/enzymes-special-report.aspx
I also feel an urgency to tell everyone to please study and consider adding at least 700 or 800mg of magnesium to your daily diet. It is the most overlooked yet important mineral. Eighty (80%) of all people are deficient of the magnesium mineral. It has been stated by nutritionists that 90% of all diseases are from a lack of Magnesium. Magnesium helps with regularity, activates muscles/nerves, creates energy in your body by activating ATP, helps digest protein, fats and carbs, serves as building block or RNA, DNA synthesis, and also precursor for neurotransmitter like serotonin. Magnesium is critical for a healthy heart and before you take calcium you must have equal amounts of magnesium. I am providing the link to study more about this great mineral, which is generally affordable to purchase and I feel a must in every diet. Please do your own due diligence and decide if you need it as well. All of these articles I feel you will find extremely informative and will help you decide.
I have given a lot of information today and hope this helps with the beginning of a new day, in healthy living for all. Remember also, do the simple things, drink @ least 8 glasses of water each day, stop all soda’s (that’s another blog— carbonation actually pulls calcium from the bones) exercise, get up and move around every 15 minutes. Intermittent exercise is extremely important. Get plenty of rest. If you cannot sleep, taking the magnesium before bed will help relax you, along with a hot bath, with baking soda and sea salt, (removes the toxins from the body)– is very relaxing. I also add a small amount of Epsom salt, which is— magnesium–which relaxes muscles more. And the greatest thing of all, these suggestions are cheap and affordable.
I pray a special blessing on each person reading this blog and hope you experience GODS’s greatest health and happiness this New Year. And remember, it is never to late to start “THE NEW YOU”!
