I was born in Ireland. But I could have been born in Afghanistan… or North Korea or Oklahoma. It could have been anywhere! My father believed that we would be “saved” if we were good Catholics. Catholicism was the “right” religion. But as a child I already questioned what God would close his (I assumed it was a he) gates to Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus or any other religion.
I knew that I could have been born in any of those countries and if I had been, would God reject me? I knew he/she wouldn’t.I “got”, at a young age, the fact that your beliefs and your habits are largely a result of your cultural upbringing, not who you truly are.That bears repeating: your beliefs and your habits are largely a result of your cultural upbringing, not who you truly are.The truth is that underneath all the many layers of cultural conditioning, we are all more or less the same.
Some people’s upbringing is a lot more privileged than others. They are exposed to a lot more and have a better understanding sometimes, of how life and people work.
Other people have a tough upbringing. They have poor education and not many opportunities to make life better for themselves. Those kinds of people are often easy bait for recruiting to political movements because they want their lives to mean something.
They want to BELONG.
It’s true that good and bad (ignorant, uneducated, traumatized, wanting to belong to something) exist everywhere, but the vast majority of people are good.. and dare I say it.. the vast majority of people are ignorant. It’s called cognitive dissonance.Maybe it should be called ‘a way of coping in a scary world’.It’s insane that so much craziness still goes on and the vast majority of us are oblivious. Instead we moan about trivial bullshit. “How dare they demand I wear a mask, they are taking away my rights.”It could have been me born there, petrified for me and my family right now.It could have been you born there.There’s not much we can do right now about Afghanistan beyond donations, prayer and awareness raising.. but maybe we can also stop complaining about trivial things like “restrictions”.
I know those restrictions can feel extremely challenging for some, but this puts everything into perspective. This is a wake-up call for our petty complaints. And maybe this is all part of the “grand plan” to divert our attention, who knows, I definitely don’t! But regardless of what it might or might not be, the innocent Afghan people are the pawns.. and it could be you or me that is there right now.

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.
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.
