Take Me to the Muddy Water!

Water is essential to our well-being and very existence in the physical realm. In a spiritual context, water is a cleansing and healing agent. Christian converts are either baptized in or sprinkled with holy water. In the Bible, there’s a story about a “crippled man” who sat by the Pool of Bethesda each day, waiting for the angels to “trouble” the water hoping someone would move out of the way and dip him in so that he might be healed. The Islamic faith speaks of water as a symbol of Allah’s mercy and benevolence. Offering water at a Buddhist shrine shows one’s desire to cultivate virtues of calmness, clarity, and purity. So what happens when we muddy the waters? Does the power decrease? Will it still cleanse us? Does it maintain the same healing properties? Great questions, my friends. My answer – It all depends upon the agent that was added to make it muddy.

Muddy water is a blend of diatomaceous earth (DE) and water. When the white, powdery DE is added to the crystal clear water, it becomes muddy and no longer tastes pure. Don’t let the visual or the taste fool you. This muddy looking chalky tasting beverage can change your healing game. It’s not a miracle cure, yet you may want to give the muddy water a try. I’ll tell you a little more about this great ally.

DE is composed of 85% silica and a few other trace minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, iron, phosphorous, and selenium. Silica is an instrumental part of human ligaments, cartilage, and musculature. This amazing mineral is missing in our food supply these days so natural supplementation is a good idea. The most easy and affordable way to get it is to mix 1-3 tablespoons of DE with purified or distilled water and drink up.

Here are a few health benefits of muddy water.

  • Growing hair in persistent bald spots (even helps with male pattern baldness and alopecia in many cases).
  • Growing strong, healthy hair and nails.
  • Repairing muscles and bones.
  • Balancing cholesterol levels.
  • “Killing” excessive candida and some parasites in your digestive tract causing yeast infections, thrush, brain fog, inability to focus, eczema, allergies, itching, and many digestive issues to say “bye-bye.”
  • Removing heavy metals and toxins from your body with the assistance of chlorella, red clover, and/or cilantro.

Of course, eating clean is a must if you want to see optimal benefits. Otherwise, you’re just putting old wine in new wine skins. Oh yeah. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Do not consume DE if you are experiencing kidney issues.
  • Only consume food grade DE.
  • Do not stand in the cloudy powdery residue in the air when you add it to the water. Once it settles, then mix it. Inhaling DE powder can be harmful to your lungs. Look at it under a microscope and see just how sharp the silica can be.
  • Start with one tablespoon to see how your body responds.
  • Stop consuming DE immediately if you experience stomach pains.
  • Drink extra water when consuming DE and be sure to eat fibrous food to prevent constipation.
  • DE alone will not get rid of every single parasite in your digestive system and bloodstream. So, consider black walnut powder, wild oregano oil, cloves, and wormwood as a companions if you’re cleansing. Different substances are required to get rid of parasites at different stages of growth.
  • DE alone will not get rid of all forms of eczema, allergies, or itching. Adding olive leaf infusions or extracts can be helpful.
  • Remember, this information is for educational purposes only and doesn’t replace the advice of a medical doctor.

I’d love to hear about your experiences with the muddy water. Feel free to sing your favorite Negro spiritual when preparing the drink. Songs like Take Me To the Water. If you’ve been to any baptism service, you have probably heard that song a million times – Take me to the water. Take me to the water. Take me to the water. To be baptized. There are so many verses. And if you have a really creative pastor, he/she might make up verses if there are a large number of people to be baptized. Watch out now! I just might make a video to show you just how well I know this song. Just kidding. I won’t torture you like that. Just have some muddy water and let me know what you experience after a week of faithful consumption. Take me to the muddy water!

Love and light!

Underarm Funk Be Gone!

Do you want to switch to a natural deodorant yet, you’re over powered by funky sweat? Consider an underarm cleanse.

image

  • In the shower, gently scrub your underarms with a loofah sponge.
  • Rinse well and repeat.
  • Rub iodine tincture under your arms and let it soak in until the red color disappears then wash your underarms again. This helps control bacteria and helps dissolve cysts that may have formed under your arms from years of chemical anti-perspirant and deodorant use.

I do this process almost every night due to my personal history with fibrocystic breast disease. I’m all about preveting that situation from occurring again.

Here are some additional tips.

  1. Drink G Juice daily. It will naturally deodorize your body and give you energy.
  2. Eliminate or extremely limit garlic, white onions, refined sugar, and meat from your diet. All of them increase the probability and pungency of the funky sweat.
  3. Visit Nandi’s Naturals to find a deodorant that works for you.
  4. Consider investing in chemical free underarm wipes and wearing cotton t-shirts shirts under your clothes if you’re a heavy sweater. Once you cleanse your body, your sweat will smell much better.

Love and light!

Oil Pulling: An Ancient Ayurvedic Practice

IMG_2955

What is oil pulling? It’s an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for twenty minutes. I suggest using unrefined and cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil or sesame seed oil. Sunflower seed oil has been suggested as a good oil for pulling but since I have not personally tried it, I’m not comfortable recommending it. This practice works best first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The goal is to draw toxins out of your mouth to enhance your dental health. When you enhance your dental health, you enhance the overall health of your body.

When combined with a clean eating lifestyle free of processed food, refined sugar, and gluten, here are some benefits you’ll experience when you incorporate this practice into your daily regimen.

  • Healthy, glowing skin
  • Reduced oral plaque and tartar which improves gum health which contributes to gingivitis
  • Reduced oral bacteria like Streptococcus mutans which contributes to tooth decay
  • Reduced oral candida which contributes to digestive system infections that impact the entire body
  • Decreased occurrences of migraines and episodes
  • Help with balancing hormones
  • Increased energy and endurance
  • Whiter teeth
  • Enhanced immune system performance
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Contributes to relieving symptoms from allergies, most autoimmune disorders, ulcerative colitis, colitis, and diabetes
  • Reduces the irritation of chronic skin problems like acne, eczema, and psoriasis
  • Supports tissue repair and healing

These are just a few benefits. Do your research to learn more.

Peace and blessings!

Healing Aspects of Rain

raining1-208x300

As long as I can remember, I’ve loved the sound of rain. Something about the pitter patter of heavenly drops against my window pane makes me exhale and smile. When I smell rain in the air on a Saturday morning, I get all warm and fuzzy inside because I know I get to sleep with the beautiful sounds of God. Earlier this summer, the twins and I played outside in the rain and it was an amazing cleansing experience. It reminded me of childhood days playing in the rain with my cousins making “greens and mud pies.”

Connecting with nature spirits is an instrumental path to healing for those who are earth signs in the astrological realm. Every human being came from the earth yet, we earth signs have a stronger connection than most. Whether it’s running barefoot in the grass, feeling the ocean waves crash against our feet, or dancing in the rain, nature calls us to commune there with God. That’s the real church. For those who crave these experiences like me, its imperative to honor the beckoning of your heart. The healing you’ve been looking for may be in this experience.

Indigenous people were so connected with nature, they could hear the whispers of God in the wind. They could place their ear against a tree and be filled with the spirit of God. While those times seem to have passed, I believe the technological lives we live require us to reach back to the teachings of old and bring them into the modern day. As a health coach, I’ve seen people be healed simply by basking in the sunlight, taking in those healing rays to generate vitamin D and body electric. I’ve also seen folks be healed simply by drinking from a fresh water spring. Rain has a similar healing effect. The sound of the rain evokes a calming feeling that serves as a catalyst for us to open our hearts. Many ailments that manifest in the physical realm are often a result of pent up frustrations from a variety of life’s disappointments and hurts. Rain serves as our reminder that we have an overflow of abundance in our lives that will manifest according to our specific needs and desires. 

The next time it rains and the temperature’s just right, put on some old clothes, go outside, and feel the rain on your skin. Baptize yourself in the water and let it wash your cares away. There’s healing in the rain, so open up your heart and receive your blessing.

Peace and love.

Fast, Detox, Cleanse, Physical Health, Vaccines and Immunizations

Vaccination Nation

With all of the information about vaccines out there, I decided to do some research and share my findings from a balanced perspective. My goal is to inform parents of some dangers associated with vaccines and to provide some viable options to help them move forward. To do so, I conducted research with both organizations opposed to vaccines and vaccine supporting organizations, like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, to get their side of the story.

One publication I found compared the past and present immunization schedules. In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccinations on the schedule. Due to a number of reasons (whether legitimate or not), that number has increased overtime. As a result, there are now 36-38 recommended vaccines on the list. The number has more than tripled over a period of approximately 30 years. We also noticed that cases of autism, asthma, allergies, digestive issues, ADHD, and conditions increased as well. While we can’t prove the correlation of the increase of vaccinations with the increase in these conditions, we know in our hearts that there’s a connection. This connection is made worse when you introduce chem trails and the consumption of genetically modified fruits, vegetables, animals and their byproducts into the equation.

With all this in mind, what should you do? You have two options. You can choose not to vaccinate OR take control of how your child is vaccinated. Whichever option you choose, consider the following.

If You Choose NOT to Vaccinate

  • Breastfeed your babies. Breast milk is full of nutrients and antibodies that can help protect the baby from most diseases.
  • Build your child’s immune system with immunity boosting foods and natural immunity (allowing the child to contract the disease and heal using herbal/natural remedies, quarantine, and homeopathic remedies from Dr. Isaac Golden’s natural immunization).
  • Become familiar with the vaccination exemptions in your state. Especially if you plan to send your child to daycare, public, or private school.

If You Choose to Vaccinate

Whether you choose to vaccinate or not, here are a few resources to help you learn more about the subject.
