Are you healthy?
By: Carol Giambri
Most people think they are healthy until the time comes when they get diagnosed with a disease. At that point what are they going to do to change the doctors even tell them they need to get their health back or sometimes give them little hope their condition will improve. Sometimes it may be called hereditary.
Calling in the doctor…
When you get sick do you immediately run to the doctor for a prescription or different drugs? In the United States, as I can’t speak outside of my country, many people I know run immediately to the doctor for a quick fix. What they don’t realize that all drugs have side effects. It’s a fact and many times, and I believe by law the doctors are required to let the side effects be known. Pharmacies do provide a small booklet that explains the side effects of the drug.
So what to do when sick…
You may get your prescription filled and go that route. Or you may look to doing other things. For example, there is raw garlic that can help with the immune system. It is a powerful fighter. The smell is worth it’s weight in gold. There is also the friendly lemon that is antiviral, antibacterial and has immune boosting properties. I choose organic produce when available. I don’t mind spending more to know the benefits are worth it. At least to myself and my mindset.
Your Natural Penicillin
I remember years back going to the dentist and having an root canal. He wanted to follow his usual protocol and asked me if I was allergic to penicillin. I said no but I don’t take drugs. He had me sign a waiver to protect himself. He never had a patient like me in his many years of practice. It pays to be different. I healed well without any drug side effects too.
Did you know…
Lemon can be used to freshen up your hands. Take a slice and rub in hands. Rinse afterwards. A great way to extend the use of lemon too. I love these tricks and tips I learned over the year to share with others.
So you can choose natural or the drug route. You can also choose to change the way you eat. For myself I didn’t have to get sick to change my meat and potato lifestyle I grew up with. However, I learned as a young teen I love the natural lifestyle. As an adult I made the switch. My husband was resistent to change prior to his one time seizure over 35 years back. We did drugs for 10 days during search or fear. We found a natural practioner and my husband changed from the inside out. It has been decades for our change to vegan without any regrets.
Have you considered trying some grains? How about some brown rice? Quinoa or barley? I prefer always organic and soaking the rice or barley to save on cooking time. Add it to your plate along side of some fresh salad or steamed greens. Top if your favorite dressing. I call this a healthy meal as most may not be able to just have a large salad for dinner, like I can, so adding some substance to it makes it more fulling to many. You can also have sone soup and salad that you make yourself. Making your own is a great way to know the ingredients including spices you add in it. Store bought you have to believe what you read, but is it always truth?
Next time you feel some sniffles or something coming on will you look for a more natural approach or run to the doctor? You will probably save money if you consider the natural approach. For better eyesight try blueberries?
