Vegetables Love You (More Radical Self- Care) 

You are wonderfully made. You are more than good enough. You don't need to punish your body anymore by using your stomach as a garbage disposal. You don't need to be punished. Eat real food, stop eating processed food, and... Continue Reading →

Intuition and the Voice of God

There are many points in life where we have to do tough things. We try to make new friends, we try to recover from an illness, we try to recover our children, we try to get over something hurtful that someone said to us. I have found that if I keep trying to do those things, it never happens, or only partially so. But when I change my attitude to, "I am doing this well, it is for me, and it is happening now", truly amazing things happen, and that is the sweet spot.


But sometimes, in my human-ness, and in the fog of getting caught up in that which is less important, I forget about what exactly God is capable of. I was reminded a few weeks ago that the bigger and more earnest and confident the prayer, the more likely God is to hear it and to answer it. I have found this to be true time and time again.

EBV/Hashimotos/Hypothyroid/Gut Healing -Thoughts for Today

As owners of human bodies, we don't really get to decide to not care about our health. The consequences of this decision are a lifetime of constant struggle, descent into multiple diseases, a broken gut (and therefore broken brain) depression, and potentially, so many prescriptions that your head will spin.

You are bigger Than Food

"See that cookie over there? Many people are going to try to justify all of the reasons why it is OK for them to have that cookie. You want that cookie. You deserve that cookie. You cannot live without that cookie. Nobody better try to tell me I cannot have that cookie. Actually, I'm going to eat that entire bag of cookies, because I'm a grown adult, and nobody can tell me what to do. Humph."

What I do to recover quickly from a cold

I would go to the doctor and they would put me on course after course of antibiotics, which as you know from reading my previous posts, is a tremendous part of what led my immune system to just crumble and become vulnerable to autoimmunity and other disease.

As we know, another key to reducing inflammation is keeping the fake and refined sugar out of our diets. If I do use sugar in our home for healthy treats, I stick to real, organic maple sugar, and raw, local honey, and I don't bake every day!

PANS/PANDAS part two- how we’ve helped our child recover: Genetics and Homeopathy

I have really been struggling with constructing part two of our journey with Pans/Pandas... as those of you who have dealt with these conditions understand, often times it's one step forward and two steps back, and all along the way... Continue Reading →

“Mommy, mommy..I just feel so sad…..!” Our sudden education in PANS and PANDAS.

We put her to bed on that Friday night, our little five year old, after the first week of kindergarten. I couldn't believe that my littlest was in full-day kindergarten already! She went to bed like she always did. We prayed, and... Continue Reading →
