These are the 3 shocking things I learned about healing during the past few months…. [Read more…] about 3 Shocking Things I Learned about Healing
No matter where you are or how you got sick, you must know that things can change. But first, if you are self-diagnosing yourself, you must stop.
As I was getting ready to be discharged from the ER a couple weeks back, I asked the doctor, “So what did you find to be the cause?” He replied, “We don’t know.” He then continued, “I have ordered you a couple of prescriptions to pick up.”
I replied, “But you just told me you don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t understand how you can give me a prescription for something I might not even have?” He responded, “We think it’s one of a couple things, so we gave the prescription for both, just in case.”
I never went to pick up the prescriptions because when I reviewed the paperwork and what they diagnosed me with, I laughed. They just guessed.
I confirmed the denial of the prescription and diagnosis with my doctor.
Educated guesses do not suffice. Popping pills and following “plans” without accurate information is more damaging than helpful.
I know because I’ve lived it.
And every single day, I am asked,
How do I know if I have SIBO, Adrenal Fatigue, Colitis, Celiac, etc.?
My answer is now very simple, “You are diagnosed with it.” Simple to say, hard to understand. I get it.
I have learned more in these past few months about my health than I have in the past 10 years.
I know what happened, and I know what lead to my ultimate demise.
I am learning (and trying to now embrace) that it’s not about where we started out, but how we grow and ultimately change for the better, in order to get better.
No matter where you started or how you got sick, know that the circumstances can change, that you can get better and of course, that I am always here to listen.

For those of us concerned with real health and healing and living an overall holistic lifestyle, Hemp History Week is an important week of the year. Today, in particular, I want to share more about Hemp History Week and your gut.
Let me first clear up the misunderstanding that consuming hemp is illegal and that it’s marijuana.
Consuming hemp is completely legal and it is not marijuana. Hemp is a part of the vegetable kingdom, is only related to marijuana, contains only trace levels of THC (less than 10ppm) and will not cause a psychoactive effect. (Things You’ve Always Wondered About Hemp But Were Too Afraid To Ask)
I am so confident of all the above that I give hemp to our children right alongside me.
So now that we have that cleared up, let me tell you some things about hemp.

Not only has my gut been thriving with hemp, but in many ways, I think hemp has helped with the overall healing. Hemp is good for our bodies.
Hemp seeds are a nearly perfect food source. High in digestible protein, healthy Omega essential fatty acids (EFAs) and naturally occurring minerals, hemp seeds are also free of gluten and have no known allergens.
We eat hemp in our house almost daily.
If you’ve never tried hemp, do yourself a favor and grab some.
Happy Hemp History Week!
