The human body is an amazing thing. And when it has the nutrition it needs, it runs really well and it does the healing.
After many days that turned into months which turned into years, I can truthfully say that I am finally healing myself. I dealt with multiple gastrointestinal issues which led to numerous tests, medication galore and being on the verge of surgery to "heal" all my issues. I remember the day well, when the doctor said he would not be opposed to a total stomach removal. Yes, scary, I know. That was the day I decided that I was going to fix this problem myself. I knew deep down the root cause of my issues was my weight. So little by little my habits changed and here I am now, having lost the weight of a 7-year old and comfortably off all my medication and am never looking back. I've learned that food truly is the purest medicine for your body and it can heal you.
For those of you that face GI issues, I hear you. I get you. It's a very, very scary place to be and many cannot understand the pain you are facing. I'm a living example of how food has become my new medicine and has given me life and energy back. Now not all days are perfect and frankly, going into the holidays is very scary with all the treats that can put me back into a spell in a heartbeat.
The past few years have definitely not always been easy but for once in my life I can finally say that I am grateful for the body I have been given and I am beyond grateful for my health.
