In my previous article, I mentioned how at 52 years, I felt like a 90 year old. I had gained 30 lbs going from my previous weight of 145 pounds to 175 pounds. My waist line went from 28 to 37 inches! I was not in the best of health and was taking high blood pressure medication, had developed other health challenges, such as sleep apnea, joint pain, backache, skin conditions etc. But I want to tell you now that, at age 64 I feel like a healthy, thirty year old. One of my granddaughters just told me that I am the fastest grandmother she knows. This is the same granddaughter who always tells me that I am old because I have seven children and eleven grandchildren. Like many people one of the mistakes I was making that was affecting my health was that I was buying bottled water. At the time I did not know the danger bottled water brings to one’s health; not to mention wasting money. This being due to the fact that bottled “Spring water” was not guaranteed to be what it stated on the bottle and there was also a risk that the water was contaminated since it was not regulated. It’s been about 12 years since, and I can’t believe people are still buying bottled water. They tell me, it’s for convenience; AND CONVENIENCE IS WHAT IS KILLING US! I am expecting everybody to know what I know about water, food, skin care products, hair products, household products etc. And with all these, I have become the guinea pig of my family and friends. Therefore, most of the things I will mention, I have used them myself. I hope you will come back to read about my experience with water.
It was 1999 when my husband rushed me to the ER. I started with a headache, then a bleeding in the nose. On arrival I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. The doctors said I would have died within an hour if I didn’t get there before that! For three agonizing years I was on medication with no improvement. Weight came on and all sorts of health problems piling on one after another. I cried out to God. I was too young to be a burden to my husband and my children! I was only 52 years old and feeling like a 90 year old. God answered my prayers by directing someone to send me an audio tape:” Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”.
After listening to it and reading the book, I threw away all non stick pans, can food, stopped drinking sodas, soft drinks, threw away all my make up, lotions etc., because I found in them harmful ingredients. I started drinking purified water and cooking with it; as well as bathing with it. Since then I have been educating myself on how to use God’s natural resources as He intended us to use them, as much as I can. It’s been almost 9 years since I took a prescription drug. My husband’s migraine headaches have decreased tremendously – he sometimes gets them if he eats out. In addition to the diet I got closer to God. This has brought me great peace and joy in my life.
I hope you have enjoyed part 1 of my blog. Come back on January 3rd for part 2.
Welcome to my blog! I hope it helps you live better by eating better and watching what you put on AND in your body. I’m a big believer in eating organic and have seen what it can do for body and soul. I recently lost 16 pounds just from changing what I eat and how I cook. Ask my children…I’m always giving them new information on health, so they encouraged me to write this blog. I can now post online for everyone’s benefit. Enjoy!
