How To Heal Your Body
There comes a time when you must do the research and learn how to take care of your own body’s needs when you feel under-the-weather or suffering from some sort of dis-ease. There are many resources that are available to help you with determining how to better help your own self and how to help your own body heal in a more natural way.
I have been battling food intolerance issues that include gluten, sprouted grains, quinoa, yeast extract, and food dyes and additives. These are huge triggers for me in the body and make me feel horrible— causing bowel issues, hormone issues, skin issues, and just plain exhaustion. My body responds as if it is in trauma and is being attacked, which it most certainly is when I eat these foods.
I have removed many of these food items from my diet, but once-in-a-while, I get a ‘hit’ of that which doesn’t sit well with me, and I end up going through all those emotions and reactions all over again. They last for weeks.
I have been on a spiritual path for a while and like to make some sort of connections with that which is happening in my life to my body and my reactions to the issues. I had a big connection the other day, which opened up a whole host of new research for me to explore pertaining to my body and its intolerances. I say intolerances because I have not gone for the full diagnosis with a doctor, but DO know that my body cannot tolerate those items when I eat them. Also, I did go through some muscle testing with my chiropractor, who is trained in holistic medicine, and those intolerances were big, big, big triggers for me.
This past month, I have been on a spiritual quest to remove any blocks and emotions from my body that may be triggering these allergies, as I believe your body can hold on to the emotions of past events. This is one of my diary entries:
Took the car for emission’s testing before registering and the car didn’t pass. The code came on for a problem with the catalytic converter. The converter is the most important part of the car as it converts harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before it leaves your car. I took this problem with my car personally and went instantly into a funky mood and started with the “why, why, why” questions. But, I took a nap, as that is a safe defense mechanism to negative thinking.
As I was sitting up after the nap, I thought of the 28 day program and how this new development might relate to my body, since I am working on this right now. I decided to do some research and ended up very interested in the liver and how gallstones can form in the liver. Yes, gallstones in the liver, which leads to all sorts of issues and diseases. I knew this was a thing to explore, so read up about the liver and it is one of the most important organs in the body, as the catalytic converter is one of the most important parts on my car. Hmmmm… I keep reading.
The liver is the body’s primary ‘anti-pollution’ organ. It is in charge of removing potential toxins from the blood stream. Uh, okay… so I have a connection here and it seems that I must take care of detoxing my liver, as that is one area the last time I didn’t want to do any work and just kind of glossed over and ignored. I was too busy to dig deeper when I got to this part and a few other parts of my body- the ones through the middle area. I guess since I didn’t concentrate on this area at all last time, it is the place I get to start off on. Funny, because I had mentioned just doing the parts of the body in the middle to my husband, since that seems to be where a lot of my health issues stem from; I was thinking more of the adrenals and kidneys, but okay, will start with the liver.
Let’s just say, I didn’t even last the first day with the liver/gallbladder cleanse as the cleanse I had originally opted to use had apple juice as an ingredient. I didn’t survive the first day of drinking 8 oz. of apple juice, which is something I didn’t drink before the food issues as it made me feel awful, and still cannot drink it now, as it makes me feel awful. I knew that I am triggering a blood sugar issue with this, which goes along with the food intolerances. So…… I went back to the research to see what other cleanse would work for me.
On the journey, I discovered that I completely overlooked the fact that I had a planter’s wart on the bottom of my foot; candida issue. I found that I can help to clear up this candida with daily coconut oil added to my meals and it also works on the liver and gallbladder and a host of other problems. The one thing I found most fascinating that was maybe, just maybe, all my problems are stemming from candida overgrowth, and I have never recognized it. I have had planter’s warts off and on over the years, but finally, I feel that I have made a connection.
Who knew that introspection about the spiritual meaning of my car part breaking would lead me to the possibility of finding the source to my health issues? I will persevere and overcome this that is plaguing me and hopefully, can return here in the near future to give you the results of my research and testing on myself.
Until then, blessings to you as you travel onward and upward to your next spiritual revelation!
