Balance ~ Balance ~ Balance

Grandbaby Hailey

Welcome to my raw food website!  Learning about the importance of health, exercise and nutrition motivates me to be the best I can be.  I love to share my experiences in moving to raw foods and mostly a whole food diet while living a balanced life.

You might say nutrition is my hobby.  You can find me reading for hours a day from books and websites on nutrition from some of my favorite mentors.  While learning I feel I am about to explode with information and want to share with my friends.  Reading is very time-consuming but I feel it is all worthwhile.  I have had many good experiences with raw foods and have also made many mistakes.  I would like to share this information with you and hopefully help you avoid the pitfalls.

Having been raised in Louisiana on fried foods and Coca-Cola, I had a lot to learn about being healthy.  There was nothing better than a plate of fried pork chops, white rice and gravy, and beans that had been cooking all day long until there were no nutrients left.  These are good memories but I don’t miss those tastes and how they made me feel.  I am “picky” about what I put in my body today.

For years I suffered with severe migraines and seeking medical treatment always led to taking yet another pill.  I didn’t want to live my life surviving on a pill to make me feel better.  I truly believe “food is thy medicine”.   Food can make you ill or healthy depending on what kind of foods you are putting into your body.  Also, what we put on our skin is even more important.

After finding a naturopathic physician and taking many blood and saliva tests, eliminating soda and not so healthy foods, I was on the road to better health, slowly eliminating those horrible migraines.  My test results revealed a high level of mercury and my lead was off the charts.  I was astounded at how much of these elements were in my body.  After reading and researching, I knew if I didn’t get the toxins out of my body, I was headed for an autoimmune disease, or worse.  This led me down the path to natural healing.  I read everything I can get my hands on about how foods affect the body and can heal the body.

Even though I eat healthier, I have a lot of cleansing to do.  Many people think they can do a one time cleanse and they are good to go.  My body is 52 years old and years of cleansing needs to be done.  I’ve done water fasts for cleansing and they are difficult if you have to carry on with your normal routine.  I have found “juice feasts” to be great ways to cleanse while keeping your normal schedule. Additionally, if you can slow down your life somewhat, your body will appreciate it even more.

What I’ve also learned is that a person can eat the best diet ever, but if they are drinking toxic water, their health will suffer.  Check out “Water for Life”.

While I try to eat the” best foods ever” and “drinking the best water ever”, there was still a missing piece in healing the body.   I feel blessed to have found my true passion in Young Living Essential Oils.   These oils help make everyday life EVEN BETTER.   My family loves the oils and yours will too!  I am currently working on my Aromatherapy Certification.
