One day when my Equal-half and I were listening to a
Christian radio station, we heard a biochemist speaking about how to live a
long, healthy disease-free life. He spoke of also being biblically kosher
and eating whole foods, drinking plenty of distilled water and fasting. We
immediately ordered a set of his tapes and subsequently I threw out a bunch
of unhealthy stuff from our kitchen cupboards, especially the 3 evil white
substances: salt, white flour and sugar. We were doing pretty well up until
we met some nice new friends who had a house full of processed foods and
sooner or later we fell back into our bad habits.
During 3 pregnancies I had to rely on natural treatments
and remedies for certain ailments, which got me more interested in natural
healing. About 5 years ago, my pastor was talking about Paul Bragg and his
books and how they were so right on nutritionally. I ordered several books
and made my mind up to start fasting regularly and eat more natural foods
again. It had a lot of information about eating 80-90% raw food. I went on
and off this way of life several times.
was intrigued after reading about eating a high raw diet, and after further
research I decided to dive in and experience rawing for myself. Although I
knew about whole foods before, it never occurred to me that raw is the most
nutritious and easiest on the human body to assimilate, and that the body
has a much harder time trying to process cooked foods.
I am more determined than ever to eat a pure diet and
enjoy a healthy life. The support I have found here at Freedomyou is
unparalleled to any other. I could not have gotten this far had I not made
beautiful friends and formed the wonderful relationships as I have here.
This site has been a complete blessing in enriching a healthy lifestyle
balanced with a sound spiritual walk.
I was blessed to become part of the Freedomyou team as a
moderator in January 2002. I truly enjoy communicating with those who come
and have questions, especially about nutrition, food and raw support! I am
still in the learning process myself and have a long journey ahead of me, so
I love to share what works for me, and things I have learned along the way.
I invite you to come and learn everything you can about
fasting, healing, nutrition and exercise. If you have a question, chances
are someone else asked the same thing at one time or another. The message
boards are a great place for that. The search engines within the message
boards are very helpful. If you dont have a question, but a concern about
your own health, chances are youll find people just like yourself.
Most of us have found Freedomyou because we were
searching for answers beyond conventional western medicine. Although we do
not claim to be practitioners in the field of medicine, many of us can
answer questions based on our personal experience and what has worked for
us, as well as offer prayer, support and a sense of community to you.
I look forward to our journey of healing together!
