"Food is thy medicine"

Are you sick? tired? in pain?



There are two roads you can take~ the medical route or the nutritional route. You cannot take both because the one affects the other.



The medical route is great at treating symptoms. If you have a headache a painkiller does wonders. If you can't sleep, there are sleeping pills that will do the trick. In fact, for every symptom you have there is a drug to help ~ from allergies to depression.



Some people choose this route because it is fast and gets rid of SYMPTOMS~ The dreaded symptoms that make life uncomfortable and miserable.



But what if those symptoms are not intended to make you miserable, but to make you listen...listen to your body?



We do not have pain because of a lack of Tylenol. We do not have allergies because it is Spring. We have these and other common symptoms because our cells are lacking nutrients. This is the root issue. Whatever your symptoms are, it means your body has a need. The need is not that the symptom would go away. That is your desire, of course. But really, no more symptoms should be the result of your body getting what it needs. Drugs take away symptoms without meeting any needs.



Do you believe this?



For a deeper understanding watch Food Matters



"Nutrition and diet are key factors in 80% of the most prevalent diseases in the U.S."

~USDA center for nutrition policy and promotion



In this picture the boaters see a "symptom". "Hey, I see a shark fin there in the distance!" But it is just the tip of reality.

    instead of saying medical or nutritional you could say symptomatic or cellular. Some people go the natural route and don't take drugs...but they still ignore the cellular root of the symptoms.

  3. Hi Ana~
    I'm sorry that you are sick :(

    Your allergies are due to a lack of nutrients that cannot be cured overnight...but you can make changes in your life that will help. Eat more raw food...fruits and vegetables. 80% raw to 20% cooked - or at least make that a someday goal.

    A good cleanse may help. It would be too much to go into in the comments section, but I can e-mail you. Lots of people find relief from allergies when they do a good cleanse.

    As for the chicken soup - yes, it would help. Lots of liquids. Squirt some lemon in your water and drink what you can. When you are making your broth, simmer with the lid on and then drink more than you eat. Also, use lots of garlic. It is anti bacterial and anti viral. I will pray for you and drop an e-mail to you soon.

    Hugs back :)

  4. Mrs. Santos,

    Interesting information. I would agree that good nutrition is key to helping our bodies function properly. However, sometimes, the food that is best for our bodies is not always best for our pocket books, unfortunately.

    Therefore, my husband and I do the best we can. Besides, these bodies we live in are not made to live forever.

    By the way, I haven't received an email from you in a LONG time (e.g., we haven't "chatted" in several months). I hope you and your family are doing well. I miss not chatting with you, and I still think about you often. Take care.

    I know. Good food is expensive. But maybe our priorities are a bit upside down sometimes. We pay much more for our house or a car each month (at least the average person does) than we do for our daily food...and our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.

    "What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you which ye have of God and you are not your own?" 1 Cor 6:19

    Hey, I sent you an email ~ finally ~so check it. smiles and Hugs.
