Tag: weight loss






Here is my Story:

I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager, just so happens to coincide with the introduction of GMOs in the American diet, but I digress. In addition to the weight problems I suffered from depression(with suicidal thoughts) and anxiety, and what they like to label as ADHD which I no longer believe any of this to be incurable. In addition I struggled with severe, chronic pain(I worked EMS for many years and suffered a few injuries), endometriosis and debilitating fatigue and eventually learning I had thyroid disease which caused a majority of my symptoms. This all had a very negative impact in my life, my relationships, even my attendance when I was working. I went to doctors for years trusting that they knew best. In December of 2011 I was hospitalized with bleeding ulcers (from all the pain medicine I popped like candy) and subsequent DVTs (blood clots) I ended up being placed on 12 different medications, to no avail. I gained almost 70# s in 4 months, I had constant migraines, insomnia, concentration problems, fatigue, muscle weakness, mood swings, I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture. It wasn’t working…………..so I personally chose to go cold turkey on all the meds and opt for an organic alternativeand slowing started getting relief. Then I decided I would start to trust my research and trust my body to heal itself if given the proper nutrition and supplementation. What you see before you is a work in progress, stay tuned for updates. So I have taken on the task of taking control of my health and body, I hope my story and results can inspire others that there is hope beyond the pain, pills and fatigue.
So here are some of the perks of my program, I have awesome skin color, my hair is getting thicker, I have 80-95% reduction in pain (have a lot of injuries from EMS), More energy, I sleep better, my sleeping is clearer, my voice is clearer, my nails are long and healthy, my teeth are nice and white, my Endo symptoms are GONE (for those of you that suffer with this you know how big a deal this is). And the inches are melting off down 6 sizes and 48#s since April. finally started breaking through my 6month weight loss plateau, I am not nearly as hungry, so I eat less. I have yet to go on a diet by the way.
I am off all of my medications
my stomach is flatter than it’s been in over 18 months, my legs are developing that long lean look I’ve been looking for since my body building days.
oh and I have yet to go to the gym, so when I implement the diet and gym things are gonna get crazy! 🙂 (that doesn’t mean I don’t exercise, just nothing stringent yet)
oh and my mood, soooo much better, my thinking and concentration are getting better everyday. My dream in life is to help others take back the reigns and empower them to make changes in their health and their lives. I now examine everything that goes on or in my body, mind and home and could not be happier with the results. How can I help YOU?

Coconut oil :The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing properties.

beet root: lowers blood pressure, powerful antioxidant, anti-cancer, Beets are a very good source of dietary fiber, potassium, manganese, and folate. Beets are also a good source of Vitamin C, zinc, copper, and iron. Beets contain polyphenols and betalains, which are getting quite a bit of medical attention as important natural antioxidants. Beets have been clinically proven to support liver function in rats. Recent clinical research suggests that beets and beet juice are useful in healing a variety of degenerative conditions.

Diatomaceous Earth (food grade): great Silica supplement, rid your body of parasite, great for hair skin and nails, cleans bowels, lower cholesterol and much more, can be used as natural pest control in and outside your home as well. http://www.earthworkshealth.com/How-Diatomaceous-Earth-Works.php
Raw honey: Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey’s benefits don’t stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.

Lemon: Lemon juice possesses antibacterial, antiviral and immune-building properties. It fights disease and infection with high levels of bioflavonoids, pectin, limonene, citric acid, magnesium, calcium and vitamins. It stimulates digestion, promoting weight loss.

Carrot: not just for your eyes 🙂 A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that falcarinol, a natural phytonutrient in carrots, can reduce the risk of cancer by a third. Falcarinol helps to protect carrots from fungal infections and defend itself against harmful pests.

Banana: Bananas are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre. They also provide us with a source of energy. They contain a lot of iron, which is extremely helpful to those suffering from anaemia, as it stimulates the growth of haemoglobin in the body. They contain a lot of potassium; this helps to alleviate high blood pressure and prevent bone loss by countering the damage done by a diet high in sodium/salt. Potassium is also excellent for relieving menstrual cramps and is also excellent for fluid retention, making bananas a sure winner for women who suffer with these symptoms. It also helps minimize the risk of kidney stones. Vitamin B6 also helps to balance blood-glucose levels, thereby alleviating mood swings often associated with PMS.

Strawberry: anti-cancer, bone health, eye health, antioxidant, fights against hearth disease and diabetes. http://www.naturalnews.com/036575_strawberries_diabetes_heart_disease.html
