Gluten, dairy and all the rest: Adding food back after elimination

I was on elimination diets for a long time and needed to be in order to quiet down the chaos in my body. I now know more than when I started and hope that the general method of learning to listen is helpful to others since I know the details will be different for everyone. Recently I went through a stint of eating lots of gluten and cheese as I add many different foods I avoided for many years back into my diet. I jokingly call it "retoxification." ...

herbalism/dietary tip: learning to listen to the body

Learning about how to listen to the body takes time. Small things we can start paying attention to help. *** It's best when we can taste our medicine which is one fundamentally critical difference from pharma. Herbs and food have taste that prepare the body for what is coming. And as we pay attention over... Continue Reading →

This is it. This is your life. There is no do-over. This is it.

everyone is getting younger and younger and I don't feel like I'm aging. Only the body ages...awareness is ageless and timeless. *** Life force flows through my body bringing me to Healing so that I might come to perfect flow. Flow is thriving good health. The chronically ill body healing is a vehicle into the light. ...

All diets are bullsh*t

This is what I've learned during my healing trip. What made me sustain a healing diet is getting the nutrients I actually needed. Different people are in need of different nutrients at different times...macro and micro. What you eat, for that reason matters greatly. What a healing diet looks like is going to be radically different for each person and is going to change a lot for individuals over time .. if one is healing there is no such thing as homeostasis, so it follows that your needs are going to change. With my radically dysregulated nervous system my needs can change daily. So becoming acutely mindfully aware of those changing needs became critically imperative. ...

Gut bugs and healing diets: prescription for profound healing

The bugs in our gut, good and bad, have consciousness. Good ones keep us happy and healthy. The bad ones mess with us in a multitude of ways. Many bad microbes colonize in ways that underscore and support neural pathways of trauma. As we heal our gut we heal both our minds and bodies. This is a synergistic relationship so one can work on emotional and psychological issues and heal the gut and one can also work on healing the gut and find that emotional and psychological issues also reveal themselves that way. Either way we must tend to both our emotional/spiritual selves and our physical body when dealing with profound healing and transformation. This may happen more or less consciously depending on levels of awareness. The more aware we become the deeper the transformation becomes. Simple mindfulness and paying attention to the body (meditation) allows such awareness to develop. ... A lot of chronic illness is embodied trauma...

Thank god for Dr. Google & Gut bacteria tell the brain what animals should eat

For people like me it is illness that calls us to wellness and waking up. Thank god for Dr. Google. Seriously. And to hell with¬†those who glance side-ways at those of us who've learned to doctor ourselves. We commit *science* via observations of our own bodies everyday. We learn by coming up with hypothesis and... Continue Reading →

Remineralization…a good thing to do in preparation for drug withdrawal (as well as for general well-being)

Minerals are essential for all of our bodily functions. They are needed for bone and teeth health for our blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for all our metabolic processes. They are foundational to everything we are as physical beings. All minerals are generally in a state of depletion in modern western people because our soils suck and our food supply is so compromised in a multitude of ways. Before withdrawing from psych meds it's important to have some foundational well-being if at all possible so that one might mitigate severe withdrawal issues.

Detoxification (which is really about balancing the internal ecosystem): healthy living for body/mind/spirit

We are, in large part, and among many other things, an expression of the ecosystem of our bodies which include bacteria, virus, fungi and other parasites. Successful "detoxification" is really largely about bringing these microorganisms and the rest of our being into balance since most of them cannot be gotten rid of entirely in any case. In many instances we don't want to get rid of them as in the right amount they serve a good function. We are all made up of these things in different ratios by design, really.

Healing isn’t a choice for me — it’s an imperative; my body is in charge

Healing is not always curing. People need to understand that. In the end these bodies die. So don't misunderstand when I say they know how to heal everything. Healing is not the same as curing. What is nice about profound healing, however, is that transformation of body/mind and spirit is possible in ways that most western modern human beings aren't even aware is possible. ...

Food and diet for profound healing

I didn't choose it in any conscious manner...the path chose me by necessity. Healing this particular heinously injured body required this particular sort of consciousness...I love Paul Pitchford's work...he articulates everything my body/mind has been learning over the years and supplies answers to numerous outstanding questions. This is a little excerpt from his brilliant, seminal, encyclopedic book. - This is where mindfulness with food leads to eventually...with consciousness and practice.
