In my last blog, I shared a very personal story entitled Pathway of Healing. I wanted to share my family’s story so that when I write articles such as this one, that you will believe me when I say, that I understand how difficult it is to go forward when you can’t seem to grasp the information that is being given to you! In my blog Pathway to Healing, I conveyed that I understood how it felt to sit before doctor after doctor only to feel hopeless. Please do not get me wrong, I do not fault the doctors for not knowing all the answers that my family needed to know. Rather, I want to encourage you to seek out the answers from professionals, but to ultimately seek God for wisdom as to where your answers can be found. After all doctors are mere humans who learn about symptoms of sicknesses and disease. They are Practitioners that practice medicine! Doctors can diagnose many sicknesses and diseases, and prescribe treatments to help many who suffer. I am grateful to have several wonderful doctors that my family can go to. However, it is my personal belief that all healing ultimately comes from God, the Creator of the all earth and everyone on the earth! It is also my personal belief that God will lead us to our Pathway of Healing, spirit, soul, and body!
2 Corinthians 1:3(KJV) Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
I am currently taking a course on nutrition and health so as to better learn how to feed my family but to also learn how to use many natural remedies or DYI remedies instead of relying heavily on drugs whether over the counter or prescription. The course has been such a help to me. It is answering many of my questions as to the benefits of why we should eat or not eat certain foods. Over the past several years I’ve been learning about nutrient dense foods and how using food can heal many issues in the body and relieve many symptoms. Food is medicine. This could be natural food, or spiritual food. I also wanted to learn how to share what I’ve learned with others! I know over the course of many years, that whenever I learned something new I simply tried to implement it. A few examples: we use local honey not only to replace sugars, but also because it helps my family with allergies. We use Oil of Oregano in many instances where we need an antibiotic, we’ve replaced our cooking oil with coconut, olive, and sunflower oils! I simply took it step by step as I would learn the benefits of certain foods. Now these items are regularly consumed by my family. I’ve learned not just in this nutrition course that I’ve mentioned but over several years of trial and error what benefits the health of my family. Because I am not an expert, but a housewife and mom, I found myself shying away from conversations dealing with nutrition and health issues. However, I now realize I’ve gained some wisdom over the years! I may not have a degree but experience is a great teacher! I hope to pass on what I’ve learned to those who may need it!
