I have this need to learn about taking care of ourselves the natural way. Tired of all this chemicals we put in our body that causes us to get sick, gain weight, lose weight, have mental and emotional issues. All this is contribute to the chemicals that go into our bodies.
Back then….Growing up in Central America I notice how the elderly die of natural causes. One thing I do remember was that everyone grew their own foods. Vegestables were planted and produces straight from the ground. The animals were raised by grass and corn and no hormones injected. People didn’t had the money to pay for such things. Milk from the cows and goat were naturally fresh and we were raised drinking from them straight with no processing. Everything was natural. Chickens were raised the same, they lay eggs and were sold with no hormones Injected to them, laying eggs came naturally and the eggs were delicious. Everything from the feeding of animals to the growing of plants were done like in the old days of the Bible.
Today…. Cows are injected with hormones to produce more milk and are fed all this things to make them more meatier. Chickens the same so they can produce more and bigger eggs. Plants and fruits are spread with pesticides so they also can grow bigger and in abundance. Everything that it’s put into this foods are things we put into our bodies. 9 year olds are having bodies of 18 year olds. People are suffering from depression, headaches, mental issues etc etc… then comes another harmful subject. Medication.
Medication has a way of healing one thing while harming something else. For instance, you take Tylenol for headaches, it affects your liver, now you need to take Tylenol for headache and medication for liver, the medication of the liver affects your kidneys and the pattern continues. Next thing you know you are taking 50 different kind of medications. By taking all this medications all I see if how we are putting a Bandai on the problem not taking care of the root of the problem ( get it root). We are so custom to run to the quick cure the pill that we don’t seem to see there are better ways to handle the pain. For instance, there are herbs, that can take care of a headache, feverfew for instance is one, for a stomachache, ginger, for sleepless nights, chamomile or lavender. There is an herb for certain sickness. By all means I don’t want you to stop going to your doctor and get treated for serious illness, what I am saying is that if you took care of your body the natural way with herbs and organic food you wouldn’t be having such of health issues. We need to take control of what we eat. Somethings is allergies to certain things we eat and we don’t know it but instead take medication for it and we continue eating the foods that cause us to be sick in the first place. We need to learn to eat better. Grow our own foods, I know to some it might be hard to have a garden in an apartment, actually you can do so, just take a little corner and grow your own herbs for cooking, looks for specials in the supermarket on organic, attend farmer markets in your area. Take a drive to the country and visit local markets. Why do you think supermarkets have sections on organic food. They know they are on something. I know it sounds expensive, but think of the money you are spending on doctors visits or medicines.
In the last few years, I have gotten myself in learning what I can about natural stuff. ( I wish I live in all year around state were I can have my beautiful garden were I can raised my own herbs and medicine plants. Some day it will happen. I can only dream). I make my own cough medicine, my own tinctures for toothaches, muscle relaxers, antibiotics etc etc. I give this to my family to heal them naturally rather then running to a little pill for a quick Bandai. I make fire ciders to help the immune system, also they are delicious for salads and meat marinating. I have also started making my own soaps, bath salts, lotions, etc etc. I want natural stuff to go into my body and control all those harsh chemicals that are put into everything we eat, drink, inhale, exhale, you know what I mean. It’s been three years since in my home nothing over the counter has been used. Actually, some in my home still sneak off the over counter medication but all that is a working progress, you can lead the horse to the water but you cannot make them drink, therefore, I myself and those in my home who choose tot are my home remedies get cure and healthy quicker then those who take over counter medication. I am still a learning process.
Next time you are in the supermarket read the ingredients of what you are putting in your mouth and google it. You will be surprise as to what you have been feeding your body and realize where those headaches, allergies, constipations are coming from.
God gave us nature so we can live off it. In Ezekiel 47:12 says “Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”
Have a Thanful Day and God bless
