Freedom To Choose Health


Oh wow! Where do I start? Thanks to Mike Adams and Natural News for this awesome chance to be a part of this amazing blog opportunity. With such a far reaching audience available, this is simply a fantastic chance to share my views and thoughts about health, prosperity, healing, Love and many, many more subjects. I hope you enjoy my writings and even “turn” your family and friends onto my blog sight.
My interest into natural or Holistic health and healing began many years ago. It was when I was about 10 years old that I was given a book titled “There Is a River”. The book was about Edgar Cayce, the “Sleeping Prophet”. What a remarkable man with a gift that could only have been from God. I started at that early age to read and research all I could about healing and health.

With all that being said I am putting my first blog post out here with hope of educating and encouraging you, the readers about the many subjects I will write about. The bare bones truth about health is that it is your responsibility. We as the general public have been so thoroughly programmed to believe that only so called licensed medical doctors and scientists know what we need. We have fallen under the spell of the huge medical and pharmaceutical complex. The problem is that allopathic medical doctors are no longer being taught how to correctly bring us back to a state of health. Back to a state of balance and of no dis-ease. They are merely being taught how to diagnose towards prescribing us pills that we are told we shall need the rest of our life to keep such and such “under control”.
The real truth is that each individual cell of our being has more intelligence in it than any person has knowledge. Our body can and will heal itself if brought into a balanced and healthy state of being. But, it is up to us to keep our bodies and minds healthy and balanced. If we are already in a state of un-health or dis-ease, then it is also up to us to bring it back to the healthy state it is meant to have.

You may say that I am really simplifying the process and I am telling you that yes I am. I am because once you gain a better understanding of our wondrously made bodies you will see that as complex and wonderful that we all are, the creator made it quite easy to acquire and/or maintain good health. He did not intend for us to be sickly and miserable. It is due to our own choices and the fact that we, as a whole, have been programmed away from being our bodies own stewards. We no longer have faith in ourselves to know what our bodies are saying to us. Those aches and pains and rashes and allergies and all the abnormal stuff in between are the body’s way of telling us to take notice and change. Every single cell and every single organ in our body is programmed to support life and continual growth. They know no other way but to do all they can to stay alive. So don’t take the warnings for granted and think that someone with a medical degree is your only hope of health and longevity. They no longer cure anything. The only thing that can cure anything is your own body. No amount of drugs or herbs or whatever can bring forth a cure. Your body must be in a state of Homeostasis or balance and then the cure can manifest from the inside out. Don’t get me wrong about herbs and natural and holistic care and treatments for they help align the body into a more balanced state of being thus bringing forth a healthier state and possible healing.

I will be blogging about many things but with this first blog I want to encourage you to take this one simple step. If you can start with this, then my friend, you have taken a step in the right direction. Take one step at a time. If you start and then stumble a day or two, so what. Be proud of the days you did do this and then jump right back in the groove. You will have times you will forget or something comes up. Focus on each day you do complete the process and forget the days you slipped.

So what is this first simple step I am talking about? Trying to get your body back into a more alkaline state of being. Every wise healer knew that you cannot be acidic and healthy. It has been proven over and over again that dis-ease cannot survive in an alkaline body (somewhere between 7.35 and 7.45 approximately) for long. I will touch on that in greater depth and with more info later but today let’s keep it simple. We all know that acidic water cannot support life in a pond, lake or fish tank. Same with acidic soil, it cannot promote healthy plant life or any type of life for that matter, once it becomes too acidic. Well guess what. Our bodies are intended to be more alkaline than acidic but very few of us are in that healthy range. Sadly, it is due to our diets and what we do to ourselves. It is because of what we ingest. A healthy diet or daily intake should be at least around 80% alkaline or alkaline producing foods.

Alkaline producing foods are generally fruits and vegetables. Dairy products, meats and wheat are all contributing to our over acidic state of being. But, I am very much aware of how hard it is to go from eating the so called food that we are accustomed to, to eating the right and healthy foods we were meant to ingest. Take a look at your daily feedings. Are you consuming mostly acidic items and little vegetables and fruits? That does need to be adjusted but first let’s just do a simple thing to get started to a better outlook and a better state of being.

Let’s try to alkalize ourselves a little. How? Many ways are available. Drinking alkaline water is one of the best ways to help your body in its journey to be in a more PH balanced state. It really is fantastic but it usually requires special machines to make alkalized water. One way that I have come across is as simple as squeezing the juice of one lemon into a glass and adding 8 ounces of filtered or spring water to the juice and drinking it. It is recommended that this be done first thing in the morning and some even drink it with warm water. There are many variations to this. I have even super charged the event by squeezing the juice into a cup and then very slowly adding baking soda a pinch at a time until the fizzing reaction ceases then adding the water and drinking it down. Another way I have seen to make a version of alkalized water is to take a lemon and cut the peel off then cut the lemon into quarters. Once that is done, get 2 gallons of spring water in a jug or other container. Just drop the lemon pieces into the water and add a pinch of Himalayan salt to the water. Close it up and let it sit overnight. The water will be enough for the day for you and will be in a wonderfully alkalized state.

Baking soda also is great to drink. I take a tbsp. of baking soda and add it to 8 ounces of water and stir it up then simply drink it. You can do a teaspoon instead if you like. I happen to like the “salty” taste but if you don’t think you would you can add a bit of molasses to it to make it more palatable for you. Once again, there are many variations of this but the point is, just do it or something that will bring about a tip towards a more balanced PH in your body. Every little bit of action in the right direction will help!

The point is to choose one of these and do it. They are not expensive to do and whichever you do is the first but highly important step in conquering not only un-health but also bad habite. Break out and away from acidity and dis-ease one step at a time. That’s how I began. Do it my friend and find pride in every time you do it! If you “falter” who cares. Jump right back into and slap yourself on the back with a “job well done” attitude. Any action is better than none……until next time…….
