One of my favourite books at the moment is “Life Changing Foods” by Medical Medium. Anthony writes that when people are feeling stuck or lost, unsure where to go next, leafy greens may be the way forward. They help to clean away at stored up emotions and help to ease them out of your life. As Anthony puts it this can be a very freeing experience.
I remember last year greens would irritate me. Perhaps because I wasn’t ready to let go of all the stored up things. I feel like I am finally ready to let go and move forward. So gradually I have been introducing more greens so that I can make room for new experiences.
Today I am grateful for my green power drink. I blended up a huge handful of pea sprouts, coconut water and aloe vera flesh that I have cut off my plant in the garden. I aim to rotate the greens as much as possible to ensure I am getting a variety of nutrients.
I had one of these nights last night with tons of questions in my head. I feel like at times my life is missing purpose. I feel like at times I am trying to fill a gap with all the wrong things. This morning I remembered that happiness is an inside job. I kept asking myself how to turn things around and live life with more meaning.
Then during my lunch break it dawned on me that in order to bring more goodness into your life gratitude is key. So commencing today I am starting a gratitude challenge where I share my little nuggets of bliss with you.
Today I am grateful for medical medium and all the wonderful posts he shares on his instagram account. The message today “stress is impermanent”. This means that this too shall pass. Look at stress like a teacher that has the capacity to turn you into a better version of yourself if you let it. Surrender and ask yourself what is the lesson in this?
One of my favourite bloggers in the health world is Organic Olivia. Olivia is a real gem. She puts in so much love into her research and shares it on her wonderful website https://organicolivia.com/ A couple of months ago Olivia shared a post on Instagram about Anthony William who is also called the Medical Medium. Since Anthony has been four years old he has been able to hear the voice of spirit who has taught him about many health related issues. In his book Medical Medium he shares the secrets behind chronic and mystery illness and how to finally heal. At first I only started following Anthony on Instagram but after I had listened to a couple of his podcasts I was hooked.
I ordered his book in order to finally find out more about the symptoms I had been experiencing since last year. Some of the symptoms include an under active thyroid and I have been also deficient in minerals that I have struggled to replenish so far. My naturopath has had a huge impact on my journey however even she could not understand why my mineral levels continue to be on the low end of the scale. In the beginning I also had major issues with my digestion which thankfully have not been a problem for a while. Also regular anxiety and panic attacks became part of my life. The panic attacks have probably been some of the worst parts. Over time I have found though that through meditation and hypnosis I have been able to keep them under control so that I can live a normal life. Chronic Fatigue has also had quite an impact on me and I find that I by far do no longer have the same energy I used to have. I need so much more sleep. And you do not want to meet to meet me if I have not had enough sleep. Without sufficient sleep I turn into a monster… And the imbalanced hormones also did not help the situation.
In his book Anthony shares how most of us have the Epstein Barr Virus but that it lies dormant within most of us waiting for the right moment to strike. In a lot of situation the virus becomes active when we are going through very stressful situations. This was also the case for me. Building several businesses, selling and buying a house and of course having a job that required me to handle the workload of 2-3 people. Your body certainly go es to battle with the virus but depending on how depleted your immune system is from what you have been through it may struggle to fight it off. The virus will also have a go at one or more of your major organs. Once it settles in an organ doctors will struggle to locate the virus. Your body thinks it has won and the virus continues its journey in damaging your body. This also explains why often your body may be acidic if you have the virus no matter how clean your diet is. The Epstein Barr loves to go for organs such as the liver, according to Anthony, as it thrives on poisons and the liver has the main job of cleansing within your body.
After reading the Medical Medium book I was shocked to see how many symptoms people may have as part of having the virus. Examples include Candida, Migraines, Shingles, Autism, Depression, Post traumatic Stress Disorder, Premenstrual Syndrome and even Lyme Disease. If you have any of these conditions you have nothing to loose in getting Anthony Williams book. I have started implementing some of Anthony’s recommendations and I am continuing to feel better. At the beginning of this year I wasn’t able to even exercise and would only manage to go for slow walks in our neighbourhood. I have just started to rebound again and I have missed it a lot. The Medical Medium book made me excited about the future and I feel that this book will continue to have a massive impact on many lives.
