I'm not BROKEN. I'm HEALING.
We often think that when there is something wrong with us, that we are broken. Last time I checked, broken crayons still worked :).
You are not BROKEN. You are HEALING. I know I felt like I was broken for a long time. I've been on my journey to healing for many years. First I had to heal what was going on inside my mind. Then, I had to heal my soul. Now, I'm healing my body on the inside.
I am hypothyroid and going through menopause. And have been on and off medications for the last ten years. One thing I have known and believed, is that the body heals itself. Medication is only a band aid for the problem. It's not a solution.
Knowing that, I've studied and gained so much insight on how to heal my body. It's taken me many years. There would be days I felt "Well I guess I will have to be on medication for the rest of my life." But, me, determined as I am, kept reading and studying. I did not want to believe that I would have to rely on medicine forever.
I don't like taking medication. Never did. Never will. Even the over the counter cold medication made me feel like I had a hangover. And I don't like that feeling. Who wants to wake up feeling in a fog after taking meds? Not me!
Doctors make you feel that medicine is the only solution. Or they blame it on age or menopause. Just because you are a certain age, doesn't mean you have to look or feel like you are an old, shriveled up prune. I've seen plenty of 80 year olds active and happy.
And that's what I am going to be when I'm 80.
Now that I know how to heal my body, it's going to take time. But, I've got time. My pain is my purpose. I'm here to teach everyone how to heal their bodies using food as their medicine.
I'll keep you updated on my journey to healing. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me. I know it's going to be BRIGHT.:)
