My grandfather always used to say that him and his wife had figured out the success to a happy life and a happy marriage: “Health, love, and money, in that order” he says.
This blog today is to talk about HEALTH, the bases for heaving good love, and good wealth, really, because without a strong sense of health and strength, what good are the other two, anyway?
I have spent years trying to figure out how to be “healthy”? It seems to be a mysterious far away, lofty ideal that no one has truly mastered. Some know more than others, but it does come down to truly knowing your own body and lifestyle.
After blowing out my adrenals in college, and burning the candle at both ends, it has taken me at least ten years to catch up on sleep… and to teach myself how to eat PROPERLY and not give into temptation every time cheesecake comes calling.
Something else I’ve realized they don’t teach you in grade school (let alone college) is how and when to take your vitamins. Now, I do NOT proclaim to be a nutritionist; rather this is simply an example of a regiment that, coupled with proper diet and exercise, can lead to a better you. At the very least, it’s something to think about.
One really could drive themselves crazy over-thinking when and what to eat with what other food combinations in order to promote the best longevity. Of course, you have to take into account the fact that some people eat meat, others don’t, some fish only, some vegans, etc…. which some would say might be attributed to blood type. (If you do some research, one will find that type 0 blood type is suggested to eat more meat than others…)
Do what you want with your food life, as long as it works for you. All of that aside, after suffering some extreme fatigue, I came to discover that I have been prone to bacterial overgrowth that has been destroying all of my nutrients! These guys, that live in your intestines, eat all of your food before the vitamins can hit the blood stream! They got out of control because of SURPRISE: Antibiotics! And it’s been a lot of hard work getting ahead of it, and the proper bacteria back in place via pro-biotics and other vitamins.As I became increasingly aware of what nutrients I was getting, when and from what, and slowly surely, the fatigue cloud is lifting. Cutting out carbohydrates and glutton helped a lot, along with this powdered herbs I discovered (https://theinterstellarplan.com Discount Code: sg151) which I take daily. But yes, I have become a slave to my vitamin regiment. When I saw my grandfather’s pill containers as a little girl, I never thought that would be me! But alas, I have even discovered these tiny Macaron shaped pill containers for travel, that are a stitch.
In the end, it’s not what you carry them with, but it’s what you put into your body that matters, and WHEN! They don’t tell you in school is that magnesium when taken with other nutrients can prevent them from going into your body, and other tips like this.
I have developed a list below of vitamins, supplements and minerals that I take and at what time. This is simply based off of some simple google searches and what I determined was best for me. If you’re serious about your health, then take an hour to look up what vitamins and minerals you are taking and when to take them.
Vitamin C twice a day morning meal
After dinner Activated Charcoal (if tummy hurts)
L-tryosine evening (sometimes)
On top of the regular self-care supplements I ritualize, then there’s what happens when you get sick. Many people have posted lately about the flu and colds, and what to do when you fall ill. Here is my protocol-
Turmeric tea with raw honey, hot pepper and lemon
Roasted garlic eat EIGHT cloves straight (delicious on bread) OR cut up raw garlic and swallow two cloves minced whole.
Again, I will say that I am NOT a trained professional, and what is right for me may not be right for you at all depending on your genes, your history and your body type. Do the research for what is right for you, and always be learning and growing. It doesn’t hurt to ask. Feel free to ask away in the comment sections, and together we can find the right resources for any question you might have, or ailment that may be affecting you. Chances are, there is a natural herb remedy for any symptom that might be afflicting you. If you ARE going to go the antibiotic way (and certainly there is good use for these types of treatments) BE CAREFUL. Do the research on how to properly adapt your body into healthy homeostasis before it’s too late.
Remember, that in order to change the world, you first have to change yourself.
