If It Is To Be, It Is Up To Me (Part 6) – What It Takes To Be Healthy

Well this journey of regaining my health is an interesting one. One of the biggest things I’ve learned about it is that right now, if I sneak even a little bit of non organic, or non natural food, my body gets very angry with me. I tested this theory by trying some veggie straws a couple days ago. It did not sit well with my body :). Yesterday, I started 100% organic and natural foods. Before I’d say I was doing about 80%, but it’s clear only 100% will suffice.

I can feel my body getting cleaned out… I’m not sure how much more there is to clean out. It might take a few more months or a few more years. Regardless of how much time it takes, this new lifestyle of mine is now permanent. I now eat leafy green vegetables, organic everything, and stay away from boxed, bagged, and processed foods.

In early December of last year, my body really got slammed. In the last 3 weeks since I’ve started eating healthy, I can look at my symptoms and see things starting to improve. Here’s a list of the symptoms I’ve been having:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Lack of appetite
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Brain fog (difficulty concentrating)
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Bloating
  • High blood pressure
  • Inability to go up stairs or exert myself

Each one of these symptoms has slowly started to improve. Getting sleep, especially, is a big one. I purchased a big dark curtain for my room so that I could have it be darker. There appears to be a rhythm to sleep and keeping it dark seems to aid in the sleep process.

I’ve been following several natural, holistic doctor’s and following their advice. It’s interesting because these doctor’s talk about how if you live a fully clean and natural lifestyle, make sure your body is functioning properly, that things like even cancer can be cured.

I’m not sure what I believe at this point, but I do see that putting healing foods in my body and practicing healthy habits like meditation, prayer, gratitude, journaling, getting sun daily, and exercise are all helping in my recovery.

I’m not sure where this health road will lead me, but I’m happy with the progress that’s been happening so far. I figure if I eat 100% clean, organic, exercise, keep my mind right, get all the nutrients and sun I need, that if I still don’t get better, I can accept that. I have a feeling that I will get better though :)

To get healthy, take charge of your life, food, health, and well being. Don’t look for someone to do it for you. You must be your own advocate and participate in your own rescue. Looking forward to the continuing weeks as I heal.
