I'm headed to the gym, yes, I really am going there lol
But I wanted to put some info on here regarding my books. Since I've switched over to this blog, I've noticed my book links are not here, so I'll have to fix that when I get home later today. Meanwhile, here's a link where you can find all my books in one place. Sucks doing this from my phone, but I am doing a good thing by going to the gym! lol

Turmeric Video Found!

So I finally found the video that I was talking about for the turmeric milk. It is fantastic and I'm already seeing a difference in how I feel. I have not used it every single night, either. Also, I used vanilla almond milk when I made it the second night and it was sooooooooo delish! I recommend it to everyone who is avoiding dairy!

Here is the link: Golden "Turmeric" Milk

Please comment and let me know how you like it or how you made it better!

Good Morning March 20!

Good morning relatives,

So I guess I upset some people with my Facebook post yesterday. I feel sure that I have the right to express myself on my own page, don't you? Anyway, I'm not going to fret over it. If people cannot accept me for me then they don't have to at all, right? Which brings me to my post for today.....

BE THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE

Everyone is looking for the love of their life, at least that's what I hear. The big mystery is not so big when you look in the mirror. Who could possibly give you more than you could give yourself?

Who is the love of your life? YOU ARE. Why? Because you are the only person you can count on. No one else will be as true as you will. Especially to yourself.

We are all living our dream. Living in our own world. We are all the star of our own show. Don't expect people to think like you, like what you like, love like you love etc. They are too wrapped up in themselves, as you should be. Not to say that you should be self-centered and self-serving, but you do need to take care of yourself and have self-love. Being the love of your life is all about loving yourself enough to take care of yourself, to stand up for what you believe in, to be all you can be for YOU. Only then can you be all you can be for others.

Take heart, relatives! We all are on the same path. Getting there through a loving, caring, healthy sense of self, makes it all the more easy to navigate this crazy world! BE THE LOVE OF YOUR OWN LIFE!

Turmeric Milk - My Experience

So, last night I made turmeric milk for the first time. Before I post the recipe, let me just go over a few things.

I am trying to find a solution for the inflammation in my body, a miracle to get rid of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the miracle to help me lose weight and regrow hair, too. Not asking for much, am I?  LOL

I am going to try this for about a week to see how I feel. I'll keep you all posted.

The recipe I used is off of a video I can't find now. I will post it when I do find it, and I will. The history tag went missing off my browser bar, so I have to figure out how to find it again. Chrome. UGH.

Anyway, here is the recipe I used. It smelled and tasted like french toast milk to me, and I couldn't hardly taste the coconut at all. Here is the recipe with photos of the exact ingredients I used, too.

This starts with making a paste that you can save in the fridge so you can make more "Golden Milk."

Turmeric
To make the paste:
Stir 1/2 c water and 1/4 c turmeric in saucepan. Cook 10 min adding a little water if needed, to keep it pasty. Remove from heat, let cool, and store in jar in fridge for up to to weeks.




For the milk:
Black peppercorns
Put 2 cups of organic coconut milk, (I used one 13 oz. can of Simple Truth Organic from Kroger), 1 tsp of our turmeric paste we just made, 1 tsp chopped ginger, (I had to use powdered because my fresh ginger went missing from the freezer)  1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp coconut oil, 4 to 6 black pepper corns, & Stevia to taste (about 1/2 tsp.) The coconut oil (fat) and the peppercorns are vital for absorption of the turmeric and releasing the healing properties of it.
Cinnamon and ginger powder




Stir and simmer on low for 10 min. Strain. Sprinkle with nutmeg and drink before bed. I thought it tasted like french toast milk! LOL



I drank a little more than 1/2 a cup, then a added the rest of what was in the pan to my cup, and placed it in the fridge for the next night. I didn't want to overdo it my first time just in case I had some sort of reaction. I have read that too much turmeric can make you have nausea, diarreah, and a few more unpleasant side effecst. You will probably want to look that up youself before making this milk.


I started to get sleepy about an hour or so in...maybe less. I slept good, although I am still trying to get used to the sleep apnea machine, too, so....things are a bit rough for me right now!

If you make this milk, please post if you liked it and if it helped you!

Remember, I am working on a store that features all the things I am using to get healthy; books, supplements, food, and I'll be posting recipes here, too. I got a great one from Cook Yourself Thin that I made and it was FAB! A chocolate/oatmeal/peanut butter bar that is just incredible. I post it soon. Meanwhile, take a look at my store!

As always, use this at your own risk! This is not a substitute for a doctor visit or as medical advice! (gotta post that for the internet police lol)

Til next time,
YOU ARE LOVED!

Dear Diary...I'm so tired of feeling bad!

Today's entry is about my battle with getting healthy, repairing gut damage, dealing with GERD and vitamin/mineral deficiencies. 

I am working really hard on getting well and dealing with this Hashimoto's thyroiditis issue is a huge part of it. Can't lose weight, hair falling out, reflux issues, digestive problems, most of us are dealing with at least some of this. I have read this book, and refer to it ALL the time. It has helped me more than anything else in terms of information and Hashimotos! 

One of the things I have found to be a huge issue is magnesium deficiency. A lack of magnesium can exacerbate GERD and acid reflux. Why? Because Gerd is an alkaline wash issue. A body under stress can not produce HCl acid because under stress we lose Zinc, B-Vitamins & Magnesium — all needed to make stomach acid. And this acid is also critical to activating all the digestive enzymes in the small intestine which are dependent on magnesium for creation. Lord knows, we all have had our share of stress these past few months! 

What's worse is that if you are taking prescriptions for acid reflux, or anything similar to kill what stomach acid you do have in your gut, it is making the reflux way worse. Plus, modern Rx meds for this are very destructive and have black box warnings about how they deplete the body of magnesium! 

So while trying to make ourselves better, we are making things worse by taking these prescriptions our doctors so readily hand out! 

Our grandparents and great-grandparents used Milk of Magnesia to solve their occasional stomach issues by providing added magnesium, which they knew they needed! They also used good old fashioned baking soda in a little water to help with heartburn or bloating. I use this myself quite often. About 1/2 teaspoon in a cup of water does the trick!

When I was on Zantac last year, I started having PVC's. (premature ventricular contractions) That is where your heart feels like it is beating an extra beat or skipping a beat. It sucks. Come to find out, the Zantac was depleting my body of magnesium! Plus, I am on lisinopril everyday which also depletes mag and potassium! 

Once I got rid of the Zantac, the PVC's stopped -- but they came back. Why? Whenever I ate spicy food (goodbye Mexican favorites)  or anything with MSG, I have them. I do have a weapon against them that I have found works wonders, though. It is OX BILE. This is for people with no gallbladder (mostly) and it is exactly what it sounds like. 

When you have no gallbladder, bile just drips into your small intestine instead of being squeezed out when needed by the gallbladder. This is horrible when you eat a high-fat meal because you end up feeling miserable with bloat, heartburn etc. OX BILE helps me with that and it came with the bonus: it completely got rid of the PVC's for me. 

This is the OX BILE I take, along with other things I am taking and doing to get healthy. I don't take it every day, only when I eat a high-fat meal or feel the PVC's coming on. 

There are several things I am taking to help in my road to good health. At 54, I really have to look hard at my diet and health habits. And I am, believe me. This link will take you to my store where I am keeping track of all the things I take, the books that are helping me, etc. I have to pay bills, so I opened the store to help with that. Just putting it out there in case you are curious (Yes, I make a little off of the things you buy from my store, but it's more about helping others than making money for me.) 


I am not telling you to take any of these things, and my advice is not intended to be used in any way for a medical condition. This is just my personal findings and what I have done for myself that seems to be working. I really think that gut issues are what are making us all so sick! 

I will post more about this journey in the near future. I am just now figuring out what is wrong and how to fix it. Slow and steady wins the race! 

Til next time-- YOU ARE LOVED!
