Natural Healing

Natural HealingOver the past couple of months I’ve dropped ten pounds using a “slow carb” diet. But, once again, I’m kind of stuck. So I started looking into supplements — vitamins and minerals — that might often be deficient in those who have trouble losing weight. The vast numbers of potions and pills is overwhelming.

I ended up with a bottle of calcium with vitamin D, but it got me thinking. Certainly the best possible way to get vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and all those other needed microscopic things is through real food.

Fortunately, we like most vegetables and fruits. Generally speaking, getting a good variety of these will provide most of the nutrients a healthy person needs. Sometimes, however, we have a specific health need that our typical diet isn’t addressing. If I can solve a problem with a real food or a product made from real food, I have more confidence that it will be properly absorbed.

If you have any health problems associated with inflammation, consider wellness drink called Nopalea. I can help cleanse the body of toxins, reduce inflammation, and promote optimal health — and all from rare antioxidants sourced from the fruit of the Nopal cactus.

Since Samson was released from the hospital (the second time!), we have made a concerted effort to eat better. We’ve always eaten very healthy foods, but now even the kids seem determined to do whatever is within their power to stay out of the hospital and healthy. So we’re on the lookout for ways to accomplish that. If you find other products that have helped you, let us know!

    I do agree with you! Eating real food is definitely the best source for the needed vitamins for your body. I suggest that you also eat meat or any protein source as well aside from eating fruits and vegetables but just make sure to minimize the intake. Just take what is really needed by your body. 🙂

    What does Nopalea taste like? One thing about using food for vitamin supplements is that often time our food comes from far way. This means vitamins and nutrients are sometimes non-existent by the time they make it to our mouths. The best thing to do is buy local.

    Thank you for the post. Might check out this drink.

    Natural healing is really advisable especially when preventing ourselves and our family from sickness and diseases. It’s a good thing that your kids are determined to eat healthy. It is important that they think that way while they’re young. 🙂

    Just eat more fruits and veggies..Protein also contains in them and other nutrients that were present in meat. Fruits and vegetables are natural and organic foods that will make us healthy. Remember we are what we eat!

    I’ve never previously heard of the Nopal cactus before, Alison so thank you for that.
    The power of learning is great.

    I know in myself, there’s always more you can do in eating in a more healthy way and I also understand the real healing properties of real foods too. For our family, at least, it’s getting the motivation in being able to make the change that is the current stumbling block.
