Gut health, ‘Prevention is better than cure’!

When I was a child, many of the doctors (and some even to this day) did not know or understand the importance of good gut health, and how it affects the health of the entire body. And as a result, many people were prescribed medication for their symptoms, without looking deeper into where, why and what was causing the problems in the first place. We now know that most diseases begin in the gut, when the gut microbiome is off balance. This can happen for many reasons: from eating a lot of processed foods, drinking a lot of alcohol, smoking, antibiotics, medication, and depression etc.

I believe that my many annoying health problems (which I had over the years): IBS, Duodenal ulcer, Rosacea, Ovarian cysts, Endometriosis, Intestinal thrush (candida), and Interstitial cystitis, were all connected and due to having leaky gut syndrome… Ceoliac disease, which I did not know I had until 2015. I often wonder, if only I knew this years ago it would have spaired me alot of pain and disstress.

But then again, if I hadn’t gone through it all, I probablly wouldn’t have been so determined and focused on studying natural ways in which to heal my body. I am proof that there is always a way to heal, and I’m so passionate for people to know that they can also take control and lead happier, heathier lives. Because the saying is true ‘prevention is always better than cure’.

So please listen to your body, if you have health problems that just won’t clear up, then look at the health of your GUT, eat a whole foods diet, do some form of exercise, learn to relax, forgive and let go of negative emotions, and have some fun!

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. – Phillipians 4:13

 

Eggs for breakfast anyone?

Stay away from all those sugary cereals, which can cause your blood sugar levels to rise and leave you feeling hungry again an hour later. Why not eat a couple of eggs instead. Eggs are wonderfully nutritious, low in fat, and will not affect your blood sugar levels like most cereals do.

Organic eggs are a natural God given food and will not raise your cholesterol levels either, as you may have been lead to believe. They contain many health benefits, which are far better for you than any man made food. So throw away those sugar laden boxes of cereal and enjoy a hearty egg breakfast instead.

Try them poached, boiled, as an omlette or scrambled and if you fancy a fried one just go easy on the oil. 🍳

I love eating eggs for breakfast, so please let me know how you like your eggs and I will give it a go.
