We truly can heal ourselves. Our body has the capacity to be well and stay well… with our help.

Wouldn’t you rather eat bananas, potatoes and raisins for your High Blood Pressure than take a prescription pill with side effects? Or how about peanuts, cheese and warm milk with honey for insomnia? Got kidney stones? Drinking enough water with lemon will most certainly keep you from getting them and if you have them water is a cure. Did you know, on any given day the kidneys filter about 200 quarts of blood to remove salts, water, and waste products that form when the body processes food and liquids? The refuse is waste and it’s medium for transportation - is Water. The human body contains approximately 72% water. Heartburn food cures are Cinnamon, turmeric, water, ginger, and slippery elm tea.
How about as we cure disease with our fork and in the meantime save our planet from the doomsday forecast. Leading scientists have a dark forecast for the future of our planet if we humans continue to pillage and rape it as we are doing so now.
Our rain forests (our second set of lungs) are being trimmed away for soybean cattle food and palm oil and soon water will become our new ‘gold’.
In this book, I am currently reading - named Protest Kitchen fight injustice save the planet and fuel your resistance one meal at a time by Carol J. Adams and Virginia Messina. They write: Factory farm animals live in crowded in small spaces, denied feed, live in unnatural lighting and live in their own waste.
Replacing animal food with plants is the most effective dietary change you can make for the health of the planet.
Let’s not make our compulsions our freedom. Pay attention to compulsive eating of food you know hurts you and maybe also the planet. True freedom lies not in what we can do without regard for others and the planet or being controlled by compulsions of the mind. True Freedom is being freed of all compulsive behaviors. Freedom equates to conscious living.
True Joy is knowing we are contributing Joy to the world. Paying it forward.
Let us make 2019 a joyous one for as many as possible.
Let us all become a mother to the world. She feeds our body well.
Cultures who believe the creator is also within the earth, they tread lightly with a sense of sacredness upon her. The movie Avatar describes this beautifully.
