Health is Wealth
Not sure of how many of you know that Natural Aloha was founded on a need for me to be healthy again. I had fallen so ill in 2013 that I could not even get out of bed. The symptoms were vast and scary and no one could help me explain them.
2013 was a time of much learning and growth. It was a painful and scary time. To face ones mortality is never easy, but to face it at age 40 brought me to my knees. I had to make the choice if I was going to live in pain and sickness or if I was going to find a way to be well and thrive. I took my health and wellness into my own hands and researched, learned, tried, tried again, felt better, felt worst....and then did it all over again. Through it all, one of the most beneficial discoveries that I made was that FOOD IS MEDICINE.
We are never really taught that in school or in society. We are taught to eat what makes us happy and feel indulgent. We are not taught to eat the foods that make us feel good because at this stage in the game, most people don't know what it feels like to "feel good" anymore. People are no longer in tune with their bodies. In order to get "in tune" we have to eliminate the bad and introduce the good into our bodies. We should all be able to feel how good a nutritious meal makes our bodies feel. Let me just burst your bubble and tell you now, you will not feel like a million bucks, eating from the dollar menu at McDonald's.
While I was learning and healing, I eliminated all processed foods from my diet and chemicals from my immediate environment (as much as I could control), and really tuned in to what made me feel good and what made me feel bad. This is how Natural Aloha was born! I couldn't tolerate the common deodorants and none of the natural ones on the market worked for me!
Over this last year, I have been battling with some old symptoms off and on. Mostly because I had become complacent and had not made my health a priority. This is what most of us do in this day in age because we are so busy working, taking care of the kids, trying to keep up with the Jones', and the list goes on and on. STOP IT! Without your health, nothing else matters!
I had to STOP IT or I could see myself going down the same path of stress and unwell. I have been revisiting some of my old research and came across a book called Life Changing Foods by The Medical Medium. This was one of my references through my revitalization all those years ago. While reacquainting myself with him, I came across his book called Liver Rescue. I bought the book and the audio book! Since then, I have been slowly reintegrating my wellness plan back into my life. For about a week now, I have been strictly following his advice of starting the day with warm lime water (I did this for years from 2013-2015 What happened??? Why did I stop?), and also drinking at least 8 ounces of cucumber juice a day. I also have been doing my best to avoid dairy, gluten, and eggs. I normally follow a no gluten or dairy diet, but have been eating eggs A LOT lately, which may have been attributing to the brain fog I have been recently experiencing. Bottom line.....it hasn't been that long, and it hasn't been that hard but I already feel amazing with just these little changes that I am inspired to do more!
I wanted to share this wellness message with you because in order for us to heal the world, we have to heal ourselves first. We have to keep our bodies, minds, and spirits HEATHY! Consistency is key and SOOOOOO WORTH IT! You all deserve to feel good and live well! I hope I have inspired you to take better care of yourself.
