My Healing Journey update 2021 | Hyperthyroid stuff and more

    Keeping it real and not hiding anything about my journey. My prayer is that my mistakes and set backs can be a lesson learned for you as it is for me. 

   A message to those on a healing journey and who take the time and read this. Thank you in advance for the support! For those who have followed me and read about my journey. You know that I have been into natural health since I was a young adult. Unfortunately not to the extent that I believe now or to the extent that I need to be. In the last few years I have been actually practicing for the most part, or at least trying to practice an extreme (by societies standards) form of natural health, a Genesis 1:29 inspired diet. Please don't look at my content and think that I am a master of this diet! That I haven't struggled with it. I write and have this blog to share my journey with those who it may help. And possibly inspire others to embark on a healing journey as well. 

I AM NOT, NORE DO I WANT TO BE A GURU OR A DOCTOR! I am only sharing what I've learned, experienced and and believe with you. Take it or leave it. I hope that you can learn from my experiences. Do not think that I have not struggled with my diet, and in my life! Do not assume that the people on YouTube, or anyone online for that matter doesn't struggle just like you do, like I do. There are certainly conditions and situations that make the struggle harder or easier depending on the situation. 

My Journey!

The first year starting in Oct of 2017 I was practicing what is known as a fruitarian diet, mostly or all fruit, with the exception of a few transition items like sweet potato, or steamed veggies, to get me through the holidays with my family. Not ideal but I was 99% of the way their that first year. I was also using Dr. Morse herbal products with some good result, especially the stomach and bowel formula. I absolutely loved the stomach and bowel formula. I felt like I got a good clean out and it helped heal my stomach a little bit from all of the years of wrong eating, and stomach trouble. And I only took it for a month or one bottle. 

That year I felt really good energized, healthy and two of my major problems, at the time was relieved during and after that first year. Getting on a fruit diet and beginning to clean out my system was just what my body needed! I have no regrets about that first year and I am glad I did it. I could have done it better but it was my first time and no regrets. The two major problems that I had prior to embarking on this journey was chronic yeast infections and recurrent UTI symptoms. For some background information, I was suffering from a 20 year long chronic yeast infections, that started when I took hormonal birth control at about 19 years old. I only took it for 3 years but that was enough to set me up for chronic yeast infections for the next 20 years! I literally had an infection every 3 months on average that whole time. And the medications only offered me temporary relief. By the time I was in my 30's however it was more like every month. So ya, a big problem! 

I was also experiencing frequent UTI symptoms which a few years earlier from 2017 got me into a half year long pharmaceutical trap! I thankfully knew enough to recognize it and got out of it. Long story short that trap or vortex as I like to call it, of antibiotics and antifungals was extremely damaging to my body. Thankfully I got myself out of that trap. But I was left with an even more toxic and very damaged state. In addition to the discovering of my thyroid nodules, this state I was in helped me to make the decision to do something that by societies standards is drastic. 

But then  chronic depression, family trouble, etc.. got to me... I was also still cooking for my family, and people were consistently pushing food in my face so that makes it very hard to stay on track. I can't, at this time afford to see a Naturopath or get a coach to help me through it. I have to be my own practitioner! Don't get me wrong I know that ultimately, I have the power to make wise choices for myself. I really don't blame anyone but me. It is hard to change, especially when you are consistently told not too. FYI; you probably won't get much support for doing this. Don't count on your doctor or your family to support you. But do it anyway! 

I was also experiencing leg cramping, muscle fatigue, and a blood test in 2019 reveled that my calcium and iron was low. I do not attribute this to my fruit based diet, but to the fact that my GI wasn't cleaned out good enough yet, and the digestive issues that I have had for a long time also contributed to this. But later I learned that it was my thyroid that was causing these deficiencies. Low iron is associated with hyperthyroid, as well as the other things that was going wrong with me. Also just not eating enough fruit calories to give my body everything that it needed. Fruit diet rule #1 EAT A LOT OF FRUIT! And get the GI cleaned from the inside out asap. I can say that the hardest part for me was eating enough food. And not eliminating waste effectively as I could. Even still I managed to overcome the yeast and the UTI. But please keep reading...

Even though I was still fruit based after that first year and so on, I started adding in more of that cooked comfort food again, but only in the evenings. I ate fruit for a first meal ÷ snacking, or second meal until evening and I would eat whatever plant based foods that I had prepared for my family or that was available, or easy for me at the time. I feel like I was being lazy and I figured what the hell! Maybe it will help bring my iron up, so I ate lentils, vegan split pea soup, rice, and unfortunately my bread addiction crept right back up. We humans have a way of justifying why we do things that we know may harm us. And just not giving it my all. Not fighting hard enough for myself. That is typically for me actually. 

If you read part 1 of this post about my health journey and The Mucusless Diet Healing System you will get a bit more information on how food addiction works. And hopefully you will have a better understanding of what I have been going through. Please take a look tat that too if you can and thank you! 

Unfortunately that lasted until April of this year 2021. Not only did my eating of beans, legumes, pea soup, rice, nuts, seeds and bread NOT lead to the improvement of my iron levels it actually made it worst! My most recent blood work 2020 indicated that my iron levels were even worst than the first time I tested low a year before, after that first year of a fruit diet. Although my calcium did go back to a normal range thankfully. In addition to my iron NOT improving on a plant based diet, some other things got worst too. One of those things being hemorrhoids, digestive and elimination issues. And another one of those things being that my biggest complex nodule went from a 4.3 to a 4.9! 😬 And so began my hyperthyroid journey.

I started having trouble with hemorrhoids back in my early adult years when I was diagnosed with the H Pillory ulcer creating bacteria. In those days I did have an ulcer and I was experiencing horrible acid reflux. I was treated with the Prev. Pack which is a lot of drugs taken twice daily for a couple weeks. Well it got rid of the bacteria creating my ulcers, but it left me with constipation. Constipation that created hemorrhoids. So not a new problem! And definitely not a problem created by eating fruit, but cooked plant based protein foods.

That's when I started paying more attention to what I was eating and tried to add in more high fiber foods, fruit, and veggies, even back then! Unfortunately, but not surprisingly the doctors were not helpful in that, so I was on my own, as usual. I was still eating cheese and meat sparingly but by societies standards I was a health nut! And got shit for it all the time. 

I regret not listening to Dr. Lorain Day more in those early days. She promoted a mostly raw, vegan diet for the elimination of disease and healing the body. That's why I have several of her tapes. I loved to hear her speak but just didn't get the vegan part back then, and it just didn't register with me then. Oh, how I wish I had listened to her more and implemented everything she said. I would have avoided hemorrhoids, yeast, UTI, and thyroid nodules all together. 

I really believe that! 

Going back to not only did adding in cooked plant based foods like beans, legumes, peas, rice and bread NOT HELP ME, but it made my colon issues much worst! I already was having some elimination problems even eating only, or mostly fruit that first year. But I didn't have hemorrhoid flare ups and I only had to eat more fruit, or add in a meal of boiled sweet potatoes for a solution. So for about 2 years now of eating a lot more cooked plant based foods than I believe that I should, I am left with a bad issue, or a pain in my ass I should say! 

I am worried that the damage is done and colon cancer is in my future, apparently both colon cancer and hemorrhoids have similar symptoms. I don't really think so but it is on my mind. And actually these nodules are probably my biggest concern. I am determined to finish what I started back in 2017. I believe that natural healing is possible for me not only for this pain in my ass, but also for eliminating my thyroid nodules. I so much want to succeed in this! I know that I need to fast with Loren Lockman at his beautiful Costa Rica place but that is just not an option for me right now. I will have to settle for good old fashion will power, strength, divine help and determination despite anything or anyone that may be a stumbling block for me in my life.

No this life of natural health is not easy, don't believe anyone that tells you it is! If you want to heal yourself naturally you must change everything about yourself. You have to become a person with a mind for health and healing, not for a magic pill! You have to not care what anyone thinks about you, or what anyone says to you. You have to be in your mind and body always! It can be done but it is difficult because it's not the way the world wants you to be, it's not the way society wants you to be, it's not the way your government wants you to be. People will tell you that you are killing yourself and that you are crazy. But we have to look past all of that, and keep our eyes on the prize of true and natural health! And a better quality of life. 

I am writing this to show you that I am only human and have struggled in the past few years to make my goals, and do what I set out to do three years ago. I am determined but it is not easy and I am suffering because of my lack of control, or my desire to be more acceptable to my family members who I know care about me. I believe with out a doubt that eating in accordance with Genesis 1:29 is the key to health, both physically and spiritually. But like I said in my video, I do have some odds against me. And I need to get these amalgams out of my mouth. I need to stay stress free, and I need to stay on track. 

I know that I can heal my body if only I can take control of my life, my emotions and my food choices. I wish this post was a complete success story but it is not even though like I said those two major issues are better. And I lost the extra weight that I was carrying around. Click link for video. I am thankful for the progress that I have made in the past few years, but I know that in a lot of ways I have just begun. There is still so much for me to do and accomplish.  

Natural health is a life long commitment. It's not a quick fix, a magic pill or a one time thing. You can't just take a pill, change nothing, and expect things to just get better. Disease doesn't just happen, it is created in your body by the choices you have made and the foods you have eaten. This is something that we will work on and towards our entire life. THERE IS A TRANSITION PERIOD THAT YOU NEED TO GO THROUGH TOO. That is why I call it a journey. It is a journey to rediscovering your true self, a healthier, happier self that is not dependent on doctors, pharmaceutical companies or the government. Another reason why I am writing this is because if I die of thyroid or colon cancer I do not want a fruit based, plant based diet to be the blame. Because IT'S NOT! It is my standard American diet to blame, and my struggle to do everything that I need to in order to help my body heal. And God knows it may be too late for me to achieve complete natural health at age 41 years old.

I honesty don't know how this journey will end. God willing I will do what it takes and heal! God willing I will live a long time. But only God knows that! What I do know is that I am determined to do what it takes, I am willing to do what it takes, it is hard to do what it takes, but I am up for the challenge. And boy did I underestimate the challenge! It would be easier if I lived alone but I don't. It would be easier if I could fly away to Costa Rica and hide out for a few months in order to make more progress. But I can't do that right now! 

I want to be an inspiration to others and I don't want to die not trying either. My message is clear, eat a clean Genesis 1:29 diet, incorporate fasting, learn everything you can to help yourself and just do it NO MATTER WHAT OTHERS THINK OR SAY TO YOU! This is your life and your body! Take care of it! I wish I had  done what it takes a long time ago. I wish that I was stronger, happier, more productive. I vow to do my best, but I am not sure that will be good enough. 

I have said before that I will heal myself naturally or die trying! Just don't blame the plan, the system if I don't, just blame me. Systems don't fail, people do! I don't want people to think that natural healing is not possible, or some pie in the sky. I want people to fight for themselves, even more than I ever did for myself. Don't be sad or depressed and eat food that you know won't help you reach your goals. No matter who is telling you otherwise! 

In a lot of ways for me eating damaging foods is kind of a suicidal thing to do. Not that I am suicidal in the sense that I would directly do something to kill myself. I love God and my life. But I know what foods hurt me and which ones help me. So when I get depressed I either don't eat at all (which is better than binging on mucus forming, constipating foods) or I just eat what society calls comfort food. Comfort food offers a temporary numbing down of emotions but in the long run creates disease. It's what I do when I just don't care anymore. Maybe some of you reading can relate. I am just being honest about my struggles. And determined to stop that destructive cycle in my own life.

On the other hand fruits, berries, melons, greens may not offer much in the way of numbing you down of your emotions, and comforting you in a stressful situation but it will enhance your good feelings, give you energy, and help your body eliminate toxic disease creating waste and heal your body! DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED. Learn more, do more, eat better! I know that my first fruity year I felt pretty good, and had lots of energy. 

I had to work through my depression by focusing on myself but honestly that only lasts so long. I can't stress to you enough how much an over all life style, mind set, change is needed to make Natural Health work for you. Like I said before you literally have to change everything about your life!!  And you need to be surrounded by people who support you 100% on your journey. Surrounding yourself with others on the same journey is best if possible. Certainly not possible for me. Although my husband does a good job trying to support me and work on his own health challenges as well.

I am going to end this very honest update of my journey. Keep in mind that I am in no way giving up! I am continuing to improve on my diet, eat a clean fruit based diet with greens/herbs/some veggies according to Genesis 1:29. with a focus on the fruit. I also need to do some water fasting and some juice fasting as well for best results. 

It's just at 41 years old at the time of writing this update, I am not sure that I have enough time and energy to achieve my goals. I am however hopeful that I will! If that makes any sense lol! I am determined to master The Mucusless Diet Healing System aka Genesis 1:29. There are still a few things I have to work out. One thing being my mind! I have been experiencing very depressive thoughts and most of the time I just don't care anymore. 

I was taking whole food iron supplements and avoiding the synthetic stuff the NP gave me. So for starters I got Garden of Life Blood builder supplement with iron, B12, Vitamin C and probiotics to help in my iron levels and digestion goals. But I did wait too long to get started on it. My iron first checked low in 2019. FYI: my B12 was fine it's just that this supplement comes with it and I figured it wouldn't hurt to take it. If I feel like I need a higher dose iron then I will get that too but I am trying to keep it whole food sources. My goals have stayed the same. Eat a clean Genesis 1:29 inspired diet, fast, juice, build up my muscle with calisthenics, and have a positive attitude. 

I also have been taking a whole food Vitamin D which is important for hyperthyroid, as well as selenium but my selenium levels were in range when we checked it. A for herbs I am taking making a tea out of licorice root, nettle, dandelion root and leaf. I am also taking Bugleweed and Motherswort to manage my hyperthyroid symptoms a bit. The Bugleweed is supposed to lower the T4, T3, as well as help the heart palpitations and the Motherswort also helps the heart palpitations. I have been taking these two since mid June 2021, and may or may not continue. I do feel like it helps the heart palpitations but my blood work still showed elevated thyroid hormone as of the beginning of August. So I am looking at Dr. Morse endocrine formula and pituitary formula if that will help. And also the lymphatic system formula too, which I did take a bottle back a couple years ago. Morse says that nodules are a lymphatic stagnation problem so definitely need to keep it moving, especially in the thyroid area.

I need to stay on fruit, and simple salads for proper elimination. I also need to eat more, that is a hard one for me. I am going to work on some easy vegetable recipes cooked or not, that way I can try and eat more mineral rich foods, just to get more plant foods in me. I also have to FINALLY GET MY GUT CLEANED OUT better. Like I said I want to get back on Dr. Morse Stomach and bowel formula. And just keep moving forward! No more beans, legumes, pea soup, white potatoes, rice, or bread, even the whole wheat seeded Dave's bread which is a hard one for me to say no to if I have it at home. I have learned the hard way, but I do have a better understanding of how food, even "healthy" food by societies standards effects my body. 

I am once again reminded of my goals and what I need to be doing. 

Anyway, God willing, and God bless!

My Cleansing and Healing Journey plus a little UPDATE Nov 2018 :)

UPDATE for those who are interested! Maybe it can help you on your journey.

   I have been a fruitarian for a little over twelve months now, and I have learned a lot. I have lost 50 lbs of unwanted fat weight, going from 47% fat to 27%. I have seen a great improvement on my UTI type symptoms that was so bad four years ago. I hardly ever experience those very annoying urinary tract symptoms anymore. I will have to write about it more in another post, but I was stuck in a pharmaceutical trap of antibiotics and anti fungal medication. This was about four years ago. I even took oral Diflucan for five months straight in a desperate attempt to get rid on my chronic yeast infections. But, I had not even seeing a dent in my candida issues with that medication! After this experience I decided to get off the meds, and do things naturally. I got on cranberry water, and D Mannose to eliminate the UTI symptoms, and started taking 90 billion, 11 strain probiotic formula specifically for UTI and Yeast infection help. I had not yet changed my diet, but was able to buy myself a whole one year yeast infection free doing that. I now believe that the probiotic treatment only caused the yeast to go dormant, but did not actually restore balance, or cure anything. Some time went past, and I jumped on this fruitarian journey along with using herbs to help me with an actual cure. 
Candida, GI Trouble, and What I am doing about it!

Obviously, I am still dealing with the yeast infection issue, but I am healing from my 20 years of chronic yeast infections. Candida has been the hardest for me to clean out. My system is very slow, especially my GI, this is one reason why it is so hard to get the yeast under control. Because I have a slow system. I have even experienced constipation even while eating primarily fruit lol! Parasites of every kind live in the GI tract. Keeping the GI clean, and alkaline is the solution to pretty much everything. Because of my candida over growth, I do crave starches and breads often, but most of the time am able to avoid it. If you are dealing with yeast it is imperative that you never consume fermented foods, breads, cheeses, and anything acid or mucous forming, processed foods, animal products, etc... Even though you may crave it. If I do cave in, I can feel the itching and burning creeping up in my vaginal areas. 

Every day the cravings have gotten better the more I practice this lifestyle. That is how I know I am restoring balance and getting rid of the excessive yeast problem. I just stay away from food unless I have a smoothie or whole fruit in my hand to munch on, and that helps. Or I just go take a nap lol! I did the parasite G formula, plus kidney & bladder, also lymphatic formulas for the yeast, and that helped pretty well to keep it under control. Taking parasite cleansing herbs does help eliminate cravings as you eliminate the parasites causing them. As for the yeast I will need to keep working on it. I have seen some improvement in the candida/yeast department so far, but more work needs to be done. But, at least some improvement is better than non. I have been able to manage my yeast until now. Most recently I have had a full blown infection that has lasted for weeks now. This could also be a die off happening due to my efforts to maintain balance. 

I have recently added organic baby spinach to my diet because of some leg cramping that came up, which I never had before. I figured I needed some extra minerals. Since adding the spinach the cramping has all gone away. The spinach also helps keep me regular so that I can clean out more efficiently. So, I have added a spinach salad with avocado in the evening some days. Most of the time I just have the spinach in my apple, banana smoothies. In September I took Stomach & Bowel formula, and it worked very well. I also bought GI broom, but it promoted constipation in me, so I am saving it for when I can do at least a three day water or juice fast. I feel it will be more effective that way. Soon I need to do Stomach & Bowel again, but along with parasite M to continue to cleans from the yeast. Earlier in my journey when I did the parasite G, it seemed to help a lot, but there is more work to be done.

Thyroid Trouble!

I am also dealing with the thyroid nodules that we discovered about five years ago when I had an ultrasound. I noticed a bulge in my neck which prompted the doctor to order the image. I then had a biopsy on the biggest nodule. No cancer cells detected but I do feel that the biopcy caused it to go bigger. I had a second ultrasound prior to beginning this healing journey. I have also had a few years of low TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) before discovering the nodules. Although I haven't re-checked on the TSH yet, I am hopeful it is better now. I will post my blood work results here on my blog when I get them for those interested. I do not plan on having another ultrasound until I have been doing this awhile. I also rejected a second biopsy, and will never have one again. I do have a bulge in my neck that has yet to be less visible to me. I know it will take awhile to get rid of these nodules, but I am willing to do it naturally. The thyroid controls the efficiency of the body in many ways. I am sub clinical hypothyroid (no diagnosis can be made all hormones are normal except for the TSH) but I have learned that my system is slow, and my thyroid could be part of the cause.

I did do one month of Adrenal gland tonic capsules, and I have taken licorice root pretty regularly for adrenal gland health. I have also used the Heal All Tea pretty regularly for twelve months. Over all I feel better than I have in a very long time, so I know I am on the right track. Most of us have adrenal weakness and it can manifest in many common symptoms. The Adrenal glands are responsible for steroid production, as well as sugar metabolism. That is why I have had the candida issues, as well as the excessive belly fat accumulation that I used to have. When we fail to metabolize our sugars, especially complex sugars, we cause fermentation, and yeast and other parasites loves that! Not sure how it all relates to the development of the thyroid nodules other than it is a stagnant lymphatic system, and poor quality kidney filtration that leads to all of it. This is why to overcome any issue we must eat a primarily fruit based diet to move lymph, and get the kidneys to filter better. Also avoiding at all costs any acid and mucous forming foods. Or anything that isn't a raw fruit, vegetable or greens.

I have learned so much so far during this journey and if I could do it all again, I think I would start with cleaning out the Gastrointestinal Tract first. I realized that a lot of my problems stem from the digestive problems I have had my whole life, and definitely since I was 18. I feel that it is best to start with the gut first, get it cleaned out using diet and possible herbs before taking on other problems that you may be having. If our GI isn't clean we can't heal from the other issues. We can't absorb well, the nutrition that we need to feed the cells, and the mucous build up prevents the body from moving toxins out efficiently. In the last year I have worked on the adrenals pretty regularly but didn't hone in on the digestive tract until now. I know the in the next months I will see even more improvements.

In addition to changing my diet, I also practice intermittent fasting. I have learned not eating is just as important as eating. Fasting is a way for the body systems to have a break. The energy is then reallocated to healing the body rather than metabolic functions, digestion, etc... I do my fasting from the evening until the afternoon the next day. Sometime it is a dry fast where I consume nothing, while other times I just do water, and or my herbal tea. I then begin consuming my fruits after that. I eat seasonal fruits mostly and in their whole form. But, I do a smoothie a day most days to get the calories in. I find that I feel my best when I am fasting. My stomach feels perfect and my elimination is stimulated. I also have plenty of energy, and can digest my food much better than when I eat frequently all day long. I did do a fasting video and article for those interested I will include the link below. 

A little more of my back story :)
When I was 18 I had horrible acid re flux. They found an ulcer caused by the H pylori bacteria so they said, and I was treated with pharmaceuticals called the prev pack. After this, the acid re flux in my stomach was gone but chronic constipation, and GI issues became known. I began to change my diet by eating more fruits, and veggies. Also avoiding animal products a lot more, although I still was eating them some times. As long as I  kept a standard healthy diet I was able to maintain a relatively healthy body. Also given the fact that I was young those small changes were enough for awhile. After my pregnancies my health began to decline. I gained 50 pounds with each pregnancy, and retained a lot of water. Unfortunately I ate a lot of  high fat, salt and protein foods, along with some good foods during my pregnancies. I now know that the bad food is why my health declined during this time.

I had an emergency c section with my first, and a scheduled one with my second. If I could go back I would have adopted a mostly raw vegan fruitarian diet during my pregnancies. I know believe that is the best and I believe I would have been able to avoid many of the problems that I had. I did breastfeed both my children and this helped me lose some of the weight. I am a huge supporter of breastfeeding for both the health of the baby and mother. Even still I was left with eye sight issues, and excess weight that I struggled to get off, as well as the chronic yeast infection issues. Later when my kids were toddlers I developed the low TSH, then the nodules a few years later.

I am so much healthier now after this year journey so far. I feel better than I have in many years. I am thankful that I am finally getting it. Considering that I do not have the issues I did when I was younger I am much healthier now than I ever was. I look forward to the next years ahead in this raw vegan fruitarian healing journey. My goals for the next year is to get the lymph moving out more acids through the kidneys via filtration. We can do regular sauna time, as well as dry brushing to help with that. I have been doing those things just not as much as I should. I will also continue to work on clearing out my GI, as well as eating a raw vegan fruitarian diet. I believe if you do some of these things you will also start feeling better as I have. Here on my blog I have a whole bunch of information to help you get started. I am also here to answer any questions you may have. Please visit me on Instagram, as well as Facebook. Send me a message anytime and I will get back with you asap. If you want to see what I eat on a daily basis I recommend that you follow me on Instagram.

I hope that this post was helpful to you. I know I am not the only one with thyroid, and candida issues. My goal through sharing my journey, and learning along the way is that I can help you get started. My message is one of liberation from the Industries keeping us sick, and dumped down. We must begin to consume the diet originally intended for us by God or nature if we want to be healthy, and vibrant! What I teach and have implemented into my own life is a specie specific diet intended to get you back to where you need to be, and heal from the damage done throughout your lifetime. We are what we eat, so we must consume the living foods if we intend to live. When we eat dead decaying foods that is what we will become. Disease is really just dis-ease in the body, and it is happens when our body begins to die, to break down. I am of the thought that there is no disease (as something that can be treated with drugs) only symptoms of body malfunction. We can put any label on it that we choose but the cause is the same. What we eat, put on our skin and exposed to on a daily basis. Unless we choose to address the cause and not suppress the symptoms we will always be sick and feeling that dis-ease in the body. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and your interest in creating the health that you deserve.

My Fruit Based Journey update Aug 2018

I am so thankful to be on the way to health and healing. My only regret is not getting the whole picture sooner. I have a lifetime of digestive, stomach, and elimination issues to heal from. Not only that, candida, chronic yeast infections, UTI type symptoms, and of course these thyroid nodules, and my over all thyroid health.

I have been learning a lot in this past ten months of my fruitarian journey, especially about how my body works, and reacts to certain foods. I am learning how my Standard American Diet and lifestyle caused all of my health problems. And, I am not one to stand around, and do nothing about it. Although, I have had my share of that too!

Here's the thing!

With more information, and knowing a better way to do take care of our self, we must be prepared to do better with our life. Sure sometimes it take a long time to come to that realization. I have studied health for a long time, and I have learned that, even though health is simple, healing is not as simple as a "balanced diet" or following the FDA's food guide pyramid.

Actually, it is this false information that has made Americans Sick! When your body is breaking down, and not functioning properly there is much more we need to do than just simply follow a standard healthy diet. We must get down to business, and eliminate the very things that keep us this way!

It is all cause and effect, nothing happens for nothing, for no reason. There is always a reason, and the reason is what we are eating, putting on our skin, and exposed to on a daily basis.

Also, what we are thinking about, choosing to spend our mind power on, like negative thoughts, and the "I can't" attitude of defeated persons. You don't just get sick! Diseases, or symptoms of body breakdown doesn't just happen to attack you, making you just one of the ones that GOT IT!

As much as we create our own diseases/illness by what we consume on a daily basis, and have our whole life up to this point, we also can create our health, and vitality by the same means. What we choose to expose our self to, and put into our body, and in our mind.

The power is ours!

And, most dietitians or medical doctors can't help you do this. It, you can w with the right information! Health doesn't come from a needle, surgical, or pharmaceutical companies.

You have to be willing to get down to the nitty gritty, and do everything it takes. If you don't take control of your health and your life NOW, there is no one we can blame but ourselves.

I know it is hard to blame ourselves, and make the necessary changes. I know it is hard to hear the information, especially if it contradicts everything you have been taught to know about health, and getting well.

I know it seems easier to just keep eating the way you always have. But, is it really when you are sick, tired, getting cut into, organs removed, and taking meds for the rest of your life?


Remember, "Nothing will change, if you change nothing!" THINK

It time to make some changes, and that is where I was at in September 2017, even though I had been suffering in my unhealthy state for a long time. Even though my nodules had been with me for years! I just wasn't ready to hear what I needed to, and make those changes.

So, I know how it is :)

It's amazing how we will all too often sacrifice our health to consume animal products (dead foods) especially, processed, and cooked foods.

I know because I did it for years, and I was always the health nut in my family. I see it all around me. People sick, and suffering because of what they are choosing to put into their body! It's just not worth it...

Today, I am just glad I have begun to wake up a little more. My future seems so much brighter now. I know I have the tools to live a long and healthy life free from health issues. I am not afraid of sickness, getting thyroid cancer, or anything else. I know I am in the right place, learning the right information. And, like a fine wine, I am getting better with age :)

Thank you to those knowledgeable friends, all of the new people that I am meeting, and Robert Morse for really opening my eyes to what is actually possible with restoring my health before it gets worse. The information that is his specialty is just what I needed.

Thank you God for showing me!

I am thankful that I have lost over forty pounds of unwanted wight :) And that my stomach is feeling a lot better. I do still need to hit the stomach, and bowel herbs as well as the GI herbs to clean out my digestive tract for further deep cleaning, and healing.

I have been focused on diet, discipline, and my Adrenal glands with licorice root. Transitioning can take a long time but it gets better daily, and I am thankful for that too. This is definitely a journey, as process.

I am also learning about the herbs that grow in our yard, and how to use them. This is a cost effective way to get some of the herbs that we need for healing.

Over all, I know I am on my way to getting rid of these nodules, and achieving optimal health! I want this for everyone, but not every one is willing to hear the message or do what it takes. But I guess we are all that way at some point.

In conclusion...
"Fruitarianism is not simply a change in diet but a way to get back to the garden. Eating the diet originally intended by God for humanity. Primarily fruits, also herbs, seeds, vegetables and nuts." THINK

Do you want to feel better?
Look better?
Eliminate your health issues?

It is so possible!
Believe it, to achieve it!

I want to help you, help yourself if your ready. I have been teaching what I know here on my blog, YouTube, (www.myfruitthing.info), and on Facebook.

Please like, subscribe, and pay attention to what I have to say. Get yourself a copy of this book; The Detox Miracle Sourcebook by Robert Morse, N.D. Watch his YouTube videos which are a plethora of information. Though away everything you think you know about health, start over, and get back to basics.

Learn everything you can because you are worth it. Open your mind, and heart to the message of healing that you so desperately need.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and God bless!

My Weight Loss VLOG | How I lost over 30 lbs!



My name is Joanne and I have been in the process of healing my body with a raw vegan fruitarian diet since Oct 2017. I have also lost weight which is a huge plus. Although I didn't begin this journey for those reasons alone. Also as indicated, I'm in the process of eliminating my thyroid nodules, as well as heal my thyroid, and glandular systems in general. I look forward to what this life has to offer me in terms of success with raw vegan Fruit based, Genesis 1:29 liberation diet and healing. I want the same for you and I am here to help you do that! I believe just about anything can be truly healed through proper diet, rest, and fasting. But disease doesn't just develop in a few short months. It took me a long time to develop the issues that I have so I don't expect to eliminate them in a few short months. I have been learning from many great teachers such as Dr. Morse, Prof. Arnold Ehret, Herbert M. Shelton, Loren Lockman and many more. I am not a medical professional nor do I want to be. I do not give medical advice but my opinion based on my knowledge about natural health. I would never tell someone to do what I would not do or am not personally doing myself. I strongly encourage everyone to educate themselves and become their own practitioner. I want to thank you for taking the time to watch this video. I hope you like this channel.
