Have a Healthy, Happy Hypothyroidism Thanksgiving

https://charlottesouthend.spenga.com/blog/2020/11/18/happy-thanksgiving-2020

Thanksgiving officially kicks off the holiday season, bringing with it plate after plate of delicious food — including some dishes we only get once a year.

Food is integral to our celebrations and often holds a special nostalgia in our minds and hearts.

This year, instead of food being a source of stress or something that may derail your regular health habits, choose to embrace the day and find a sense of balance.

thanksgiving meal

Start by enjoying each bite of your favorite foods and following the tips below to have a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!

Get Moving Before Dinner

Take time to be active before your dinner celebrations start.

Get the whole family involved by getting outdoors for a game of touch football, running a Turkey Trot, or heading out for a hike.

Fill Your Plate with Favorites

Give yourself permission to enjoy your holiday favorites and to skip those foods that just don’t light you up.

Listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues, eating more or less according to what it needs, not what you think you should do to be “good.”

Leaving Thanksgiving dinner feeling satisfied curbs overeating later.

Practice Gratitude

We know the power of taking time to rest, recharge and REVIVE.

Practicing gratitude and thankfulness helps to boost your mood and alleviate stress.

So, while life may feel a bit crazy this time of year, know that giving yourself some grace goes a long way to make a healthy, happy holiday.

Finally a Holiday cookbook that will have you sincerely appreciating all the hard work that I put into creating it. This cookbook not only has recipes that caters to your hypothyroidism but the recipes are extremely easy to prepare while still being delicious as they promote your health, help you begin to heal, and you’re eating cleaner on top of it all. These recipes can be used year-round not only around the holidays and will be a great addition to your library. I hope you find this Holiday book a Godsend to the particularly crazy holiday season. This book includes a good variety of recipes that I know you will find to be delicious, full of flavor, healthy and just perfect for your Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table. From appetizers to main meals, side dishes and desserts these recipes are just wonderfully delicious. I am not kidding when I tell you that the recipe options in this book are endless and you won’t be disappointed! You will be able to find that perfect recipe in this book that makes your taste buds soar, fits your dietary needs and has your family bragging on your cooking skills. They may even think you secretly took lessons from Gordon Ramsay or Julia Childs.

Hypothyroidism Holiday RECIPE Guidebook: Surviving the Season

Holiday Appetizers and Party Snacks

Chili Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

    1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

    2 tsp organic virgin coconut oil

    1 tbsp. chili powder

    1 tsp Himalayan sea salt or Celtic sea salt

In a large cast iron skillet place pumpkin seeds over medium heat

    Stir frequently, for 3-5 minutes, until seeds start to make a crackling noise, some will even pop. Next remove the pan from the heat. Add the coconut oil, chili powder and salt. Mix completely and allow to cool a before serving.

Pomegranate Vanilla Cinnamon Chia Pudding

    6 tbsp. of chia seeds

    2 cups of nut milk (no soy!)

    4 teaspoons of raw organic local honey

    2 tsp of pure vanilla extract

    1 tsp of ground Ceylon cinnamon

    1 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds

In a bowl, mix chia seeds, milk, honey, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon together. Place your mixture in a mason jar and seal it with a lid.  Allow the mixture chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Holiday Sides

Crispy Artichoke Hearts

    3 cups frozen artichoke hearts (1 – 12 ounce bag)

    2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 tsp seasoned salt

    1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

    1 tbsp. Lemon juice fresh squeezed

In a bowl place the frozen artichoke hearts and drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice, stir to combine to coat. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and black pepper.

Arrange seasoned artichoke hearts in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake 45 minutes on 425 degrees, Stir several times during baking, until lightly brown. Remove from oven, hearts will crisp up further as they cool. Combine all ingredients for Horseradish Aioli and mix well. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Bacon-Wrapped Butternut Squash

2 lbs. butternut squash, cut into cubes

15 slices of nitrate free, uncured bacon, cut in half

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. paprika

Dash of freshly ground black pepper

In a bowl, place the squash in a bowl and sprinkle with chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper. Wrap each piece of squash cube with a bacon slice and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. After the 20 minutes flip the bites over and bake for another 20 minutes. If you like crunchier bacon turn on your broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to burn.

Simple Cranberry Sauce

    1 cup Orange Juice, freshly squeezed

    1 lb. fresh Cranberries

    1 Tbsp. Pure Grade B Maple Syrup

You want to check your cranberries by placing them in a colander, rinse them and remove any cranberries that have gone bad. Next in a sauce pan bring the orange juice and cranberries to a boil and stir occasionally. 

    When the cranberries will begin to pop open, stir in the pure maple syrup and allow to cool before serving. As the sauce cools it will thicken.

Fig, Cranberry and Walnut Sausage Stuffing

    1.5 lbs. of Mild Italian Organic Chicken Sausages, diced

   3 stalks organic celery, diced

    2 large organic onions, peeled and diced

    1 bag dried cranberries

    6 dried figs

    2 small organic apple, peeled and chopped, core thrown away

    ¼ cup walnuts, chopped

    In a cast iron skillet, add the sausage, celery and onion. Sauté until the onions are translucent. This brand of chicken sausage is already cooked but if you are using another brand follow their directions to make sure your sausage is cooked through. After it’s cooked through, add the mixture to an oven proof dish along with the apples, chopped figs, walnuts and cranberries and combine well. Place in the over 350 degree oven for 1 hour.

Let’s talk Turkey!

The turkey is the centerpiece of most conversations this time of year. There’s no denying the importance of this Thanksgiving table’s show piece. The common rule of thumb is to allow at least 1 pound per person, plus an extra half pound per person if you want leftovers. My favorite is an organic “Pasture Raised” turkey. These birds are raised with organic standards, they taste incredible and no GMO feed is allowed. Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising turkeys but it doesn’t prohibit how they are raised, if antibiotics are injected, if animal by-products are in their feed and if there were any added solutions or injections to the animal. I look on the label for it to say “Pasture Raised” or I get to know a local farmer and speak with them on how they raise their birds and what they feed them.  If a label reads “free range” or “cage free” birds, that doesn’t meant it was raised the good old-fashioned way, outdoors in a fresh pasture.  If you purchase one with the label saying “Pasture Raised”, you know you are getting exactly that. These kind of turkey’s have a diet consisting of  plenty of nutrient-rich and antioxidant-rich green grass with the  ability to forage for worms, bugs and insects. Now if the farmer supplements with omega-3 rich flaxseed meal and vitamins and minerals that is ok, as long as these items aren’t the bulk of the turkey’s diet. It’s completely up to you if you purchase a “pasture raised” turkey or one from your local market.

TURKEY

    1 12-15 lb.  Whole turkey breast, fresh or frozen and thawed

(Adjust amount of turkey stock for larger turkey)

    2 apples, whole

    4 large shallots, peeled

    3 sprigs thyme

    1 sprig rosemary

    Bunch of fresh sage leaves

    2 celery sticks, cut into thirds

    Cheesecloth (large enough for triple layer over turkey)

    TURKEY STOCK INGREDIENTS

    1 turkey neck

    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

    Himalayan sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    2 onions, quartered

    2 carrots, chopped in thirds

    3 stalks celery, chopped in thirds

    1 tsp Himalayan sea salt

    2 tsp freshly ground pepper

    6 fresh sage leaves

    2 cups of water

 UNDER THE SKIN

3/4 cup Kerry Gold Butter, ghee or coconut oil or non-dairy whipped butter, softened

1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning

(Mix this in a bowl and set aside)

    After you have cleaned your turkey form the brine mixture

    Pat the inside of your turkey dry. Season with salt and pepper.

    Stuff turkey with celery, apples and sage, thyme, shallots, rosemary. I also like to use my fingers to carefully loosen the skin around the entire bird. Take the butter mixture and rub all over the inside of the skin of the turkey. Place the butter pieces under the skin of the entire turkey. Rub the remaining butter pieces on the outside of the skin and season with salt and pepper. You can also place few sage leaves in between breast flesh and breast skin for extra seasoning.

    Place turkey in roasting pan, over a rack. Cover entire turkey with cheesecloth. Place the stock ingredients in the bottom of the pan. Roast for in a 350 degree oven until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches a minimum 165. Remember to remove the cheesecloth halfway through the cooking time, carefully remove the cheesecloth from the turkey and use the remaining butter/wine mixture to continue to baste the turkey. Always allow the turkey to rest 30 minutes before carving. If you find that the liquid is evaporating too much for the turkey stock you can always add more water or chicken stock to the bottom of the pan.  To make turkey gravy please go follow the directions that I have listed in the “sides” section of this book.

What does HEALING look like? Healing comes from a deeper place from within yourself, and taking the necessary steps to come into alignment with the truth. Every step, breath and decision you take that brings you closer to your truth, it will simultaneously bring you one step closer to what your healing will look like. It doesn’t matter what treatment you undertake for hypothyroidism. This is your truth and your healing journey. To deny this is to miss the great opportunity and message that hypothyroidism brings. We all have different paths to walk and we must learn from our walk and grow from it or we will stay stuck on that hamster wheel and continue to fall down that rabbit hole of uncertainty. Asking the questions, finding the answers and ultimately learning how to step on that path to create change is where the true healing begins then you will soon see the beginning steps of your body becoming whole again.

Finally, a drop of truth in this Ocean of Propaganda we are given daily.

A Women’s Holistic Holy Grail Handbook for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s: How I healed my Hypothyroidism and Autoimmune Disorder with Personalized Nutrition

There is a war raging against humanity and our earth.  We have been passively indoctrinated and so utterly pre-programmed that we do not ask the questions that need to ask. We have laid our trust completely in those in power or someone with a title behind their name. People conditioned blindly believing in things simply because enough people assured us it was true. Infectious diseases have been irradiated but chronic diseases are the new black plague of our modern time. This book is profoundly personal as it represents a mission brimming with meaning.  As I reflect on extraordinary truths about our nation’s health history, current, and future, I also offer you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. We must stop the atrocities if we want to become a healthier nation in the future. We must stop the atrocities if we want the human race to survive. I hope my voice and advocacy will continue to help lead the way and this book will make changes for current and future generations to come. No, I simply do not have all the answers but I have written plenty in this book to make you start questioning EVERYTHING.

What you are about to discover is terrifying.

A Women’s Holistic Holy Grail Handbook for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s: How I healed my Hypothyroidism and Autoimmune Disorder with Personalized Nutrition

I hoped you’ve been enlightened and not frightened by my latest blog — A tale of recovery to save a woman who caught OCD, Hypothyroidism and an Autoimmune Disorder –

Please follow along with me on this journey of discovery as I share with you my brush of madness with exquisite clarity. Luckily, I was never a quick fix-it junkie where I said no to many suggestions from board certified or certifiable doctors because I felt it in my soul that it was merely a banaide being placed on my issues. The names of certain doctors have been changed because frankly, I don’t want to be sued for proven their lack in their field. 

Hippocrates was right when he said: Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.

The Navel: Did you know why you place different oils in and on the belly button?

Our Navel (Nabhi), is an amazing gift that our Creator has given us.

According to science, the first part created after conception is the navel. After it is created, it joins the mother’s placenta through the umbilical cord.

Our Navel is surely an amazing thing! All our veins are connected to our navel, which makes it the focal point of our body. The belly button is life itself!

The “Pechoti” is behind the navel, which has more than 72,000 veins. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our body is equal to double the circumference of the earth. We knew that to lower the temperature to the babies, we put a cotton swab with alcohol in the navel, now we know that with oil, it’s better.

Applying oil in the navel heals the dryness of the eyes, poor view, the pancreas, the heels, and chapped lips, keeps the face bright, the hair healthier, for knee pain, the chills, lethargy, pain in the joints and dry skin.

Apply Neem Oil in your belly button – to get rid of stubborn pimples and acne.

Apply Almond Oil in your belly button- to help achieve a glowing face.

Apply Mustard Oil in your belly button – to get rid of dry, chapped lips.

Will also keep your intestines moving to remove harmful bacteria but keep the good. Actually works as a mild detox.

Apply olive oil or coconut oil – to improve your fertility.

Keep alcohol dipped cotton on your belly button – to cure a cold, flu and a running nose. When a baby has stomach pain, we put a few drops directly in the navel and we give the massage around the naval a few minutes, the pain is cured. Oil works the same way. Keep brandy-soaked cotton ball on your belly button – to ease menstrual pain and cramps.

Sesame Oil is used for all types of joint pains. It is also known to strengthen bones. Many parents use in their children every night at bedtime. Use an equal amount of Mustard Oil And Ginger Oil For Upset Stomach, Bloating, Nausea and digestive problems. Using Warm Ghee improves blood flow to the nervous system and also enhances the immunity system. It cures constipation and builds a strong digestive system. It gives relief from joint pain.

Thyme oil is anti-spasmodic, it helps relax your arteries and veins, lowering blood pressure and stress to your heart. It may also help strengthen and tone your heart muscles. As a diuretic, Thyme oil may help your body to remove excess water, salt and toxins from your body, helping with weight, blood pressure, digestion, and more. Thyme oil is an expectorant, which means it can help remove mucus from your airways and lungs. Thyme oil is approved by Germany’s Commission E in the treatment of bronchitis, whooping cough, and upper respiratory inflammation.

Remember Thyme oil is a powerful compound and should not be used directly on your skin, as this can cause sensitization and irritation. It must first be diluted with a carrier oil (like olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil)Thymus Vulgaris) Essential Oil 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade is what you look for.

* FOR KNEE PAIN *At night before bed, put 3 drops of Castor oil in your navel and spread it 1 and a half inches around your navel.* FOR TREMORS AND LETHARGY, PAIN RELIEF IN YOUR JOINTS AND DRY SKIN.

At night before bed, put 3 drops of mustard oil in your navel and spread it 1 and a half inches around your navel.

WHY PUT OIL IN AND AROUND YOUR BELLY BUTTON?

Your Navel can detect which veins have dried up and by putting oil, those nerves open them…You can keep a small drip jar with the oil required next to your bed and place a few drops in your navel before going to sleep. This will make it convenient to pour and avoid accidental spills.

Over 50 million adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain

May be an image of 1 person and indoor

The average life span is longer than ever before – which leaves a lot more time for symptoms to flare up. 🔥

If you have not been taking care of your health, an extended life span can mean new medical concerns manifesting or the reappearance of pain from injuries experienced in your youth. What do you do when this pain presents itself? Unfortunately, most people turn to opioid use for relief, fueling the already rampant opioid epidemic.

🤕 Over 50 million adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain, ranging from mild discomfort to severe, debilitating pain. There are natural treatment methods available that provide non-invasive relief no matter what your pain looks like.

– Low-impact exercise: yoga, water aerobics, or even walking daily. Yoga has the unique benefit of combining movement with breathwork, stimulating your neuroendocrine system and calming the body.

– Thermotherapy: heat therapy stimulates blood flow, soothes stiff joints and muscles, relaxes spasms, and targets lactic acid by removing bodily toxins. This approach is great for managing discomfort associated with chronic pain from mental stress as well.

– Brace supports: one of the most effective non-invasive remedies is using professional braces designed to protect vulnerable regions of the body. Their functionality provides stability, support, limits overuse and further prevents damage.

Non-invasive pain aid also generates less waste, making it a more sustainable alternative to medication. It’s kinder to the environment, kinder to your body, and sets you up to proactively manage health for the many years to come.

Are you experiencing chronic pain and want to take back control of your life?

If you’re suffering from IBS, then SIBO may be causing some of your symptoms!

May be an image of text that says 'Why do I react to everything I eat? The answer may be in your gut!'

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, also known as SIBO, affects between 6-15% of healthy Americans and 80% of people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome have developed this illness.

SIBO is a condition in which a person has an unusually large and imbalanced population of bacteria in the small intestine (dysbiosis). This leads to problems in digestion and absorption of food where you can end up with leaky gut, which is when undigested food and bacteria leak from your intestines into the blood stream.

👉If you are experiencing:
– IBS
– IBD
– Gas
– Bloating
– Nausea
– Abdominal pain
– Diarrhea and/or constipation
– Reflux
– Joint pain
– Headaches
– Hair loss
– Inability to gain or lose weight
– Flare-ups of autoimmune symptoms

…then SIBO may be to blame. Healing your gut also heals the body, since a lot of bodily processes work in tandem with your digestive system. 🙅

Are you looking for a fix to your gut, brain, or autoimmune symptoms?

Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism affects over 10 million people in the United States! 🤯

May be an image of one or more people and text that says 'Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes- including you. -Anne Lamott'

Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism affects over 10 million people in the United States! 🤯

Hashimoto’s is the most common cause of an underactive thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism, and is the result of an immune system that attacks the thyroid, gland leaving it incapable of functioning properly. Those who suffer from Hashimoto’s often exhibit symptoms such as:

– fatigue
– dry skin
– unexplained weight gain
– infertility
– hair loss
– constipation
– brain fog
– depression

The causes of any autoimmune condition are different for each individual, with common factors being bacterium, parasites, toxic exposure, stress, or genetics. There are many natural ways to support your thyroid, lifestyle management being the most sustainable. Simple fixes to diet, stressors, and daily activity can go a long way towards managing autoimmune symptoms. 😌

Start by cutting out:

⛔ dairy
⛔ gluten
⛔ processed foods
⛔ refined sugars

By removing these inflammatory foods from your diet you may notice your symptoms going away, but that does not mean the root cause of the problem has been addressed. Working with an expert and conducting personalized, in-depth testing to uncover what is causing your autoimmunity is the best course of action for long-term health.

A tale of recovery to save a woman who caught OCD, Hypothyroidism and an Autoimmune Disorder – A Memoir

I am writing to you in hopes that I can help someone else who has experienced this sort of hell on earth. That’s the best way I can describe it. No one understands unless they have actually experienced it 1st hand. I’ve done an excellent job hiding my problem. Only my closest friends know and I keep it hidden well. If people knew, they were certainly say that I am crazy and possibly turn me into an outcast, stone me with rocks, burn me at the stake like they did during the Salem Witch trials or people might show up @ my door and throw a white straight jacket to toss me in a padded room.

I have dreams, hopes and desires like everyone else. I planned on having a career, raising kids and living happily ever after but after the birth of my twins my life started to take a turn into a mind blowing downward spiral. Was I crazy? I certainly felt crazy and I felt like I couldn’t control my thoughts. Why couldn’t I control these thoughts? The what if’s? The “what if I die, who will raise my girls”? The “did they touch something poisonous?” Did I touch something poisonous? Are they going to die?  Am I going to die?

I had ‘caught” a devastating fear of chemicals.

This has drastically changed how I went about my everyday life.

I know, I was overwhelmed as a new mother of twins and a toddler. I had no family to help me. My husband worked a lot of hours. He did help me some with sleep when he came in from his Twelve hour shifts. He was a hardworking, good man but he was tired too. My break was going to the grocery store. Although, exhausted, the hour break was nice while my husband watched the girls. I also ran a small cleaning business which I enjoyed. I loved going into people’s homes, seeing how they had their house decorated and cleaning it. One day dreaming of my cleaning business booming and I too will have my own cleaning person. I took pride in my work and I was proud to say that I was a business owner.

So, the big question is what happened to me? Now, I can’t go into a grocery store without a panic attack unless I am with someone. I can’t go down the chemical isle without holding onto someone’s arm. Even driving my car and I pass a store that I know has chemicals in it sends me into a panic attack and my OCD starts the “what if’s”.

Why?

These are crazy, abnormal, not rational & unnecessary thoughts of fear of being poisoned.

I’ve had other good jobs over the years only to quit because if they had any kind of chemicals that wasn’t locked up. I would develop severe anxiety and my OCD would leave me paralyzed feeling and wanting to flee – almost all day, every day. Fight or flight, isn’t that what they called it?

My stress tolerance was non-existent.

I lived in a constant state of panic.

I didn’t want to leave my house but I had to. I had to go to work. I had to try to fight this irrational fear and not let it win over me. I am a rational person. I would never harm myself. I want to live. I love life. So why was this happening to me? My only relief would be drinking a few beers or popping me a Xanax. Neither both, obviously. If I could get a doctor to prescribe me the Xanax. Most of the time they wanted to push some form of an anti-depressants down my throat. I kept telling the doctors that I am not depressed but they insisted and pushed and I resisted. Every fiber of my being fought to NOT take any anti-depressants.  I did allow a few weeks in a moment of desperation to try a few different kinds of anti-depressants but it made me manic and have suicidal thoughts. As I look back on all the house that have been spent seeing behavioral specialists and several psychiatrists in hopes to finding an answer. I’ve read that there is scientific evidence that ALONG WITH MEDICATION AND COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY that can change the chemicals in the brain and help it balance the chemicals but you see I know that a pill isn’t a cure its a band-aide to the real issue at hand and I want to get to the root cause.  I also believe that big pharma isn’t in the business of curing us, they are in the business of making customers.  

I am a blogger and writer by every fiber of my being. I love to write, research and blog about things. I came across an article titled: Streptococcus Bacteria: The Hidden Cause of Psychiatric Disorders Almost No One Considers. By Dr. Mercola.  He goes on to say that there is a brain gut connection to many mental disorders and one being OCD! Psychiatric conditions such as OCD are primarily believed to be the result of chemical dysfunction in your brain, or in some cases hereditary and therefore out of your control. Many fail to realize that A) your lifestyle can override genetic predispositions, and B) your lifestyle can be a major underlying cause of that chemical imbalance or dysfunction. Was I just having an abnormal immune response that has triggered the start of my OCD and then did I entertain it to help develop the beast that it has become? So in layman’s terms, I have come to understand that my OCD is a psychological condition that in some sort of way always involves a domino effect reaction to the environment that I am in and the environment that I have created.

Is there hope for me? Did I just by chance come across the answer to my years of senseless suffering? I never had this problem before the birth of my twins. Even shortly after my twins were born, I still ran my cleaning service with no issues. So, why am I plagued with it now? Why am I being tortured? Could the answer to my problem be this simple!?

Dr. Mercola goes on to say that: In a very real sense, you have two brains: one inside your skull and one in your gut. While they may seem very different, these two organs are actually created out of the same type of tissue. During fetal development, one part turns into your central nervous system while the other develops into your enteric nervous system. The tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your abdomen—connects these two organs together. Your gut actually produces more of the neurotransmitter serotonin—thought to play an important role in OCD, in addition to having a beneficial influence on your mood in general—than your brain does, so optimizing your gut flora may indeed have tremendous benefit for your psychological health. And there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that this needs to begin from birth, or even, ideally, before birth.

Could I possibly turn the tables back and fix my OCD with getting good gut flora? I mean, really? Could it be that simple? Like I said, I never had this problem before the birth of my twins. I had no problem being around any kind of chemicals. I never thought anything crazy. Oh , let me not fail to mention at this time I was also newly diagnosed with hypothyroidism

In my research, I’ve also found that Choline is anti-dopaminergic and often makes OCD patients worse. Most OCD patients get worse if given supplements of DMAE, choline, copper, or folic acid. Choline is in Eggs, liver, and peanuts. Other major contributors to choline in the American diet are meat, poultry, fish, dairy foods, pasta, rice, and egg-based dishes, spinach, beets, wheat, and shellfish. I’ve also learned that I have a lack of serotonin. Serotonin boosting foods are eggs, turkey (which I can’t have, I just learned) walnuts, hickory nuts, pineapple, bananas, kiwis, plums, tomatoes and exercise.

“Historically, mental illness has been linked with infection. When Georges Gilles de la Tourette first identified his syndrome in the 1800s, it was closely linked to rheumatic fever, caused by strep antibodies attacking the heart.  Yet as mental illness moved under the dark cloak of psychoanalysis. Let me go on to add that Psychoanalysis is the Sigmund Freud’s creation.  Freud was a Jewish neuropathologist who tried to set up a psychoanalytical movement with the help of non-Jewish specialists in order to make his orientation more reliable.  Please don’t misinterpret what I am trying to say. I am not knocking Freud’s research we all know he is The Father of Modern Psychology.

Dr. Campbell-McBride has written a book called The Gut and psychology syndrome. It’s an in depth book where the author specifically focuses on people struggling with gut/brain issues like Autism, A.D.D., A.D.H.D., Dyspraxia, Depression/anxiety, Schizophrenia, OCD and even allergies. She suggests that you have to heal the gut lining in order to start to heal the brain. In her research, she has focused on soothing and healing the gut lining with foods like bone broth and beneficial fats while boosting beneficial gut bacteria with probiotics and fermented foods. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride created the GAPS diet. She is a neurologist and nutritional consultant from the UK. She discovered the GAPS diet while she was trying to treat her sons’ autism. She also claims that this nutritional protocol helped get him off the autism spectrum.

In 1998, a team of researchers lead by Dr. Andrew Wakefield took a number of children with autism, did small intestine biopsies on them, and discovered abnormally wide holes in their small intestinal lining–just like the holes found in patients with celiac, ulcerative colitis, etc. Wakefield postulated that the holes in these autistic kids’ intestines were allowing proteins to leak from the inside of the bowel into the bloodstream, and that these foreign proteins were acting like neuro-toxins and interfering with neurological functioning.

What does this have to do with me and my OCD you may ask? I believe, it has everything to do with it. There is a strong correlation between it all.  I am absolutely convinced, based on current clinical research and studies that I’ve come across that considering the role of gut flora is more essential than anything else in treating the root cause of my OCD. I do know that since that I’ve entertained my OCD its developed into a pattern and a habit.  I understand that on some level, we all exist on a broad spectrum scale where no one is considered to be entirely and completely sane. Yes, of course, there are differences between all of us, and personality is not entirely due to our intestinal gut flora. Some people’s personality just sucks and that’s all there is to it. No matter how much great “gut flora” they may have. I also don’t believe in labels or what people may consider to be “normal,” we all walk to the beat of our own drum. I do know that healing my body with food is a whole lot more appealing than allowing to be a guinea pig to Big Pharma and I don’t care to waste any more of my time sitting in a room, on a couch, explaining to a psychiatrist or behavioral specialist random bouts of craziness and seeing their approach to magically change my brain chemistry with talking through my feelings. I am not knocking their services by any means. This field is needed and they actually do help people. Please don’t misconstrued what I am saying.

So, I am putting myself out here. Not hiding my issue anymore in hopes that my journey can help someone else. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring but I do know it won’t be boring and I won’t stop researching until I find my answers. I already eat based on my hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Autoimmune disorder. I have my hypothyroid disorder and Hashimoto’s in complete control with not only the correct foods to eat but other hidden things in this world that affect our everyday lives in several of my books that are for sale on Amazon.

A Women’s Holistic Holy Grail Handbook for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s: How I healed my Hypothyroidism and Autoimmune Disorder with Personalized Nutrition

I hoped you’ve been enlightened and not frightened by my latest blog — A tale of recovery to save a woman who caught OCD, Hypothyroidism and an Autoimmune Disorder –

Please follow along with me on this journey of discovery as I share with you my brush of madness with exquisite clarity. Luckily, I was never a quick fix-it junkie where I said no to many suggestions from board certified or certifiable doctors because I felt it in my soul that it was merely a banaide being placed on my issues. The names of certain doctors have been changed because frankly, I don’t want to be sued for proven their lack in their field. 

Hippocrates was right when he said: Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.

Tainted Water

Having access to clean water may be a fundamental human right, but it is far from a real reality in many towns and cities across our America.

Estimated that tens of millions of Americans across our vast land are still exposed to unsafe drinking water every year.

The U.S. drinking water is full of contaminants such as manufactured “forever chemicals”.  The chemicals, resistant to breaking down in the environment, are known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS. Based on an unpublished U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data, more than 110 million Americans may be contaminated with PFAS have been linked to cancers, liver damage, low birth weight, and other health problems.

The EPA has known since 2001 that there was a problem with PFAS in our drinking water but has so far failed to do anything about it.

These are not the only way water can be contaminated.  Radium, arsenic, lead, copper, chlorine, fluoride, industrial waste from spraying crops, mercury from industrial waste sites, microorganisms like bacteria and parasites that get in the water from human or animal feces, Radioactive substances can leech into groundwater and nitrates that are used in fertilizers.

How do you check your water?

Your county health department will help you test for bacteria or nitrates. You can find one in your area by calling the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791 or visiting http://www.epa.gov/safewater/labs.

What can I do?

Well, for the one you can buy a water filtration system that is awesome. 

This is what I use. Per its website.

( No, I am not making any profit off this)

Berkey Water Filter is the world’s most powerful and cost-effective personal water purification systems, providing reliable and user-friendly water purification at home or from any freshwater source. Our filters are gravity fed, so no need for electricity or water pressure. They will purify water from bacteria, viruses, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful toxins.

Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). This is much longer than the majority of water filter solutions on the market.

We need treatments, medications, and procedures. Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears. That hidden barcode on our forehead. 

 Berkey Water Filters will remove:

Bacteria like E. coli – Greater than 99.9999%

Chlorine – Removed to Undetectable Levels

Heavy Metals – Greater than 99.9%

Viruses – Greater than 99.9999%

Pharmaceuticals – Greater than 99.5%

Chloramines – Greater Than 99.9%

Parasites – Greater than 99.9999%

Fluoride – Up to 99.75% (Add-on PF-2 Filters Required)

Trihalomethane (THMs) – Removed to Undetectable Levels

Petroleum Contaminants – Greater than 99.9%

Bisphenol-A (BPA) – Greater than 99.9%

Radiological – Greater than 95%

Perfluorochemicals (PFOA) – Greater than 99.9%

Toll-Free: (888) 330-9593

In addition, another interesting thing I came across is the chemicals used to make water drinkable slowly poisoned the land.

So, what happens when we become sick?

We need treatments, medications, and procedures.

Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears.

That hidden barcode on our forehead.  

The truth is bigger than we all are.  

We are easily disposable to those in power.

The industry for profit over people is mean, nasty, greedy, and sinister. Everything I feared is true.

There is a war raging against humanity and our earth.  We have been passively indoctrinated and so utterly pre-programmed that we do not ask the questions that need to ask. We have laid our trust completely in those in power or someone with a title behind their name. People conditioned blindly believing in things simply because enough people assured us it was true. Infectious diseases have been irradiated but chronic diseases are the new black plague of our modern time. This book is profoundly personal as it represents a mission brimming with meaning.  As I reflect on extraordinary truths about our nation’s health history, current, and future, I also offer you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. We must stop the atrocities if we want to become a healthier nation in the future. We must stop the atrocities if we want the human race to survive. I hope my voice and advocacy will continue to help lead the way and this book will make changes for current and future generations to come. No, I simply do not have all the answers but I have written plenty in this book to make you start questioning EVERYTHING.

What you are about to discover is terrifying.
