The Healing Power of Real Food

What I am about to share is a deeply personal story.

A number of years ago, one of the most important people in my life became addicted to drugs as a teenager.

The addiction has done its best to tear our family and friends apart.

The addiction has cost this person more than I can ever fathom in physical health, emotional wellbeing and spirituality.

Over the years I have watched their body waste away, and with it came the heavy wet blanket of the loss of connectedness and relatability.  The commitment to communication and real love, completely absent.

The one of many steps to conquer is that of staying clean, which we’re now at almost a year of.

For the past year, the struggles this person has had to experience boils down to the consequences of choices made both in the present and in the consistent past.  If my memory recalls correctly, it’s been about six months where this person could only eat about 1/4 cup of food at a time before throwing everything back up again.  Demineralization of teeth has more than begun, and emaciation is the only word I can think of to describe the physical state, all while my heart breaks to see it.

After gentle offers made for some nutritional support from me over time, I finally received the request for help.  What I found upon testing broke my heart.  It was all I could do to continue testing without crying as I was just broken over the destruction I was seeing…nearly every single organ system and gland was screaming out for help.  The body, unable to lay still from anxiety, trembled on the table.  Numerous times the need to use the bathroom or scramble up from the imminent feeling of nausea took over and we began to start over again.

I was seeing someone who hasn’t been heard by our allopathic care system.  Poked, prodded, prescribed, yes.  But not heard and nurtured and supported and held.  I was seeing someone who couldn’t stand up straight from the pain of constipation and bowel toxification.  I was seeing someone who lives on the Standard American Diet of sugars and starches and I’m about to find out what it is that’s really at the bottom of this pain.

The results were telling:

The brain, the jaw, the thymus gland, a lung, the kidneys and adrenals, the entire colon (to name a few) were what appeared.  A virus showed up, and several food sensitivities.  What I got was that the lining of the gastrointestinal tract has got to be in threads.  We have to get motility happening, we need some energy and we need to literally flip and re-pattern the entire immune system.

The list of foods to avoid:

NO dairy, even raw
NO wheat
NO gluten
NO corn
NO soy
NO brown rice
NO sugar
NO raw honey, fruit
NO peanut butter
We sat down and wrote out, most importantly, the list of foods that are available, and there are plenty.  We worked through a meal plan to get through the first week of reconditioning and rebuilding.
Want to know what happened?
There has been no more vomiting.
It’s been twelve days and there has been no more vomiting since the day we tested and therapeutic meal plan implemented.
There has been energy gained.
Smoothies and protein drinks are learning to be made and happily drank.
Meal plans are being almost entirely followed.
By day 9, no more constipation and no more pain.
By day 10, kidney stone passed.
“I’ve started doing some stretching now that I have some energy”  —-soooo cool!
I’ve received multiple communications of inspiration in the past 12 days that bring tears to my eyes-every one of them.
There is sleeping through the night, no more days and nights being mixed up.
There has been ten pounds of healthy nutrient dense weight gained on this frame that so badly needs the nourishment.
On the long road of healing, we are.
I’m touched, I am moved, and I am totally freaking inspired.
Oh yeah, and so very, very proud.  Keep up the great work, I am honored to witness this transformation.
