I’d like to back up a bit to my earlier years at age of 14 when I got my first toothbrush, at 15 I was able to go to the dentist for first time and had many mercury fillings placed in my mouth. The fillings triggered a terrible reaction to my skin, I was to fight acne for four years.
I went to many different dermatologists and had many different types of treatment. I felt like a Guinea pig I was given several injections of whatever it was, a wide variety of vitamins, medicine, nothing helped it only got worse.
At 17 I tried to join the Marine Corps. I was turned down, the doctor said I wouldn’t be able to carry a backpack on my back because of the scar tissue. I became more determined then ever to join, so I found this medical facility to give me x-ray treatments to shrink my oil glands – the doctor said he believed it would help. Upon completion of the treatments, I was told I had received enough x-rays for a lifetime and to try to avoid any more exposure to X-rays. What a joke; I’ve had enough for many lives.
First we need to put together a mindset to be willing to change. Without the will to change nothing will happen, it’s that simple. Now that we make the decision to change, we must start today. The moment we are serious in some way we must start. We must sit down and make a list of what the pluses and minuses are; in other words the price it will cost (Time, Money, affect to a relationship or?) for the gain we want.
We have to make the decision to change a priority. We need to set goals, short term and long term. Each time you accomplish a goal you will be building your self-esteem, giving you confidence that you can fulfill your dreams. It’s always very profitable to have a support system, a family member, friend or a professional, such as a Certified Nutritionist, either in person or online.
Now the prerequisites needed to start include a healthy menu, and unless you have a professional, you will have to do a lot of research. If you can afford it, it will be much easier to hire a professional. Not only will you get a top notch menu, but with the right professional they will also provide counseling on exercise, thought patterns, encouragement, as well as understanding of the importance of adding the right vitamins and minerals!
News Alert: Remember, we have decided to be serious, so here we go, from here on the definition of must actually means MUST. Must REMOVE ALL processed foods, artificial or any sugars, dairy products (except 100% grass fed goat or cow milk, butter, cheese). The less red meat the better, again 100% grass fed.
All Poultry meats and eggs must be Pastured grazed. There is a limited type of wild fresh fish to choose from. Later I’ll give a list of clean fish, poultry, and red meats to pick from. The term clean means the guideline the Bible gives for health purposes.
However, since the Bible guidelines have been given there has been many changes to the atmosphere in which all living things are affected because of all the toxins man has created and contributed to our atmosphere. Therefore the list is much smaller to pick from in regards to health purposes.
