My Healthy Journey


health_is_a_journeyThis past spring, I finally was just so tired of my Irritable Bowel Syndrome I had been dealing with ever since I could remember, I got online and did research on what I could do about it.  All my doctor told me to do was drink lots of water, try not to get stressed, take some sort of fiber and watch my fried food and sweet intake.  He wanted to prescribe medication as well.  I don’t like taking medication much less Tylenol so that was out of the question.

I decided to try a detox from Dr. Oz that I found on his website that was supposed to help with ibsIBS symptoms.  I tried it and by the first week my IBS symptoms were gone.  I have kept doing research while doing the 10 day detox and changed my diet to remove any gluten, dairy and sugar after the detox.  I also added a probiotic to my diet, pill and natural (fermented food, kombucha, etc.).  I also removed all drinks other than water drinking as much as I could.  I was amazed on the complete change in my body and how good I felt and slept.

I have also made changes in my make up, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant and cleaning products.  This is a slow process but has been very fulfilling knowing that I am allowing my body to slowly start healing and being what God intended it to be.

After a few years of research, I have completely changed to a Whole Food Plant Based way of eating now.  I decided to really dig in and take a course in nutrition and ended up on going through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through eCornell.  I finished the 3 courses on August 1, 2017 and have a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition now! 🙂

I will be adding websites, notes, recipes, videos and what ever research I find to this blog and also on my Facebook page.  Come join me if you would like to walk with me through this new journey with me.
