Clean Up Your Diet To Heal Your Body


I don’t often wake up with a hustle to my step, but when I do, the enemy FEARS me.

He has stolen my health for almost 40 years, and it’s safe to say I’m taking him on full-force until I regain what I’ve lost.

It took having so much chronic pain, I could barely hold my coffee cup in the morning. I was bedridden several days per week with pain (either migraines or Fibromyalgia), was anxiety-ridden, depressed and hopeless for YEARS….and YEARS. The CBD oil that once took the edge off was no longer working.

Then, I was inspired by a friend who was on a journey to healing using “The Medical Medium” book, which I’ve owned, read and even marked up about 3 years ago, only to set it on my bookshelf, never to open again.

Was it laziness? Was it despair? I’m not sure what kept me from actually DOING vs. WISHING for my health to be better, but after a slew of tests that came back with NOTHING physically wrong to cause the fatigue and flair-ups, I decided it was time to kick myself in the ass and do what my intuition was telling me to do. I had a strong message that it would be life-changing AND permanent.

It wasn’t about just FOOD. I was told I needed to completely revamp my way of thinking, the activities I took part in, my time on social media, the whole works.

As an intuitive, every now and again I’m hit with a “HOLY CRAP” moment of such clarity, I can’t ignore it.Ā  I can’t chalk it up to coincidence.Ā  I have to listen when the Universe presents my heart, body and soul with an idea or thought that is literally screaming to be heard.Ā  Begging me to bring it to life.

Today is Day #18 of:

šŸ‘‰ NO gluten
šŸ‘‰ NO coffee
šŸ‘‰ NO dairy
šŸ‘‰ NO eggs
šŸ‘‰ NO corn
šŸ‘‰ NO peanuts
šŸ‘‰ NO processed foods
šŸ‘‰ NO refined sugar
šŸ‘‰ NO alcohol

What’s left, right???? The first few days were hard because I didn’t feel any different. Then I got a bad cold and felt even worse, so it was a CHORE to get up and start the day right. But I did it DESPITE how I FELT. Every day I did it “despite how I felt”, I got mentally stronger and realized if it took a month to feel better, it would be worth it.

And NO, I’m not ramping up to a business opportunity to sell you health products (shocker, huh?) This is simply a P.S.A. to help anyone out there who needs the “nudge” to get healthy once and for all and take your own life back.

Every morning, after drinking 8 oz. lemon water, I juice enough celery to make 12 oz. of juice (it has to be fresh and needs to be in your belly within 30 min. of juicing). This flushes the toxins out of your body to start your digestion off right. It tastes good, and then I’m ready for some green tea with honey and lemon. I am fully awake – and sometimes go back for the second cup of tea, not because I need it, but because I love sipping something hot.

I used to sleep in until 9:30-10 a.m., drink 3-4 cups of STARBUCKS coffee with cream every single day and STILL feel like a walking zombie until mid-afternoon, right before I needed a nap or rest to calm my Fibromyalgia. I can say the morning “zombie” has now left me. (Don’t let the door kick you in the ass).Ā  I wake up on my own between 7:30-8:30 with an eagerness to get up and moving.

I have always taken in about 100 oz. of water per day, so this hasn’t changed.

I had a nasty cold for the first two weeks as well, but even with that, I have more energy than before.

Long before I made the shift with my mouth (eating – not cussing – I still cuss), I had made the shift to non-toxic EVERYTHING in my home and skin because my chemical sensitivity was such that I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving my home due to perfumes, etc. I’m not sure if that will improve, but I’m hopeful it will. I use vinegar water (half/half) for EVERYTHING I clean in my house. counters, sinks, mirrors, stainless appliances, floors, EVERYTHING. White vinegar = cheap and non-toxic.

Some of my choices of food:

Breakfast: Protein shake that contains:

  • 10 oz. Almond milk
  • Chocolate Pea Protein mix (NOW brand)
  • 1 Tbsp. Barleans Flax Oil
  • 1-2 frozen bananas

You need to blend and blend because the Pea Protein is grittier than Whey.Ā  Once you blend long enough, it will become smooth, and it tastes great.

I also take Garden of Life 90 Billion Probiotic (everyone should take a probiotic).

I’m a grazer so the rest of the day, I eat the choices I have … I don’t count calories. I no longer eat just to eat. I eat when I’m hungry, and I eat to nourish my body.

Fruits (especially apples, pears, grapes, blueberries)
Veggies (I clean and cut up so they’re ready to pack if I’m gone for the day)
Almonds & Dried Apricots
Gluten-free crackers with Goat Cheese if I want a spread
Harvest Snaps (they’re crispy snacks made with peas – I like “lightly salted”

I still eat meat – but trying to eat more fish and chicken than beef.

Spirit & Soul:

I run a business on social media so need to be present – but I’ve made it the bare minimum. No more checking all day. It takes away from my ability to be in the NOW. Being in the NOW helps me heal. Watching every move of everyone’s life drains me and steals my joy.

I’ve stopped shopping for things I don’t need. I would spend hundreds of dollars on things I REALLY DIDN’T NEED, only to come home sick from the chemicals the clothes are treated with and the perfumes all over the stores. Shopping seemed to be the only thing in my control and I used it as my crutch. I’m using that money to invest in supplements, coaching and anything that is going to move me closer to my goal of being healthy and debt-free.

I’m changing the way I view leaving my house. I was starting to become a shut-in due to my lack of energy and anxiety and my fear of getting sick from perfumes. Now I view it as an opportunity and privilege to drive with my top down and music blaring.

I’m treating myself with gentleness. I’m done trying to perform to the standards of society and am finally marching to the beat of my own drum.Ā  I’ve forgiven myself for some of my past life-choices that hurt and fractured my family, and view every moment with them as a gift.Ā  My granddaughter’s birth was a rebirth of our family.Ā  She is a golden ray of light that binds our hearts and souls together. Ā Ā 

I attended a drumming meditation/manifesting event during the full-moon last month and it jump-started my healing. I haven’t been the same since. Never say no to anything that could help you spiritually – your health is just as much a spiritual battle as it is a physical one.

I’ve reigned in the time I spent on stupid tasks that I thought were growing my business. They weren’t. I’m using the Law of Attraction, positive affirmations and meditation & prayer to inch me closer to my goals and teaching others to do the same.

Today, I know someone, somewhere, feels hopeless like I did. This isn’t a “cure-all” for every single thing going on with my body, nor yours, but it’s a damn good start.Ā  I suffered headaches while withdrawing from the coffee, but have not had a migraine in 18 days, nor taken a Xanax for anxiety, nor had restless legs when I go to bed.Ā  I still have “structural pain” from degenerative disc issues in my neck and low back and am working with a trigger point specialist and spending more time in my massage chair my husband gifted me for Christmas.Ā  Like I say, it’s not a “cure-all”, but if I can eliminate some or most of my chronic symptoms through making positive choices, that empowers me to deal with the symptoms that might take longer to improve.

I’m eager to get up in the morning. I’m eager for what’s to come. I don’t fear the future. Taking control of your life once and for all is a step of faith, and you need to rely on the Universe, God, or whatever else you believe in, to SHOW UP powerfully for you once you have the courage to do it. You’ll have willpower you never knew esisted, and perhaps you’ll get to the point I am at, where it doesn’t seem hard. It’s a life-choice, like finally putting down the alcohol bottle or crack pipe.

EVERY PART OF YOUR LIFE IS A CHOICE. We all make choices, and I’ve made very poor ones with regard to my diet. If I can do this, you can too.

The enemy wants you sick. Crippled. Mentally spent. Emotionally traumatized. It’s a daily choice to fight … and I hope you’ll fight for what’s yours. God has the ability to heal, but we need to take responsibility for our own choices.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”
1 Peter 5:8.

Much love to you all….


“Be brave, be kind, be bold, be fierce, be YOU”
