Podcast #186: New Beginnings

January 4th, 2019: In today’s show we talk about our 2019 theme “New Beginnings” and I offer 7 tips to help you start the year on the right foot.

Here are my means of setting goals:

  1. Think long-term. Visualize what your life looks like one year, 5 years and 10 years from now.
  2. Break your long-term goals into short-term goals and set a timeline to achieve them.
  3. Take small, doable actions toward achieving them every day.
  4. Re-evaluate often. Don’t be afraid to change course, make new goals or even scrap old goals if they no longer fit your longterm vision for your future. If things aren’t working it is perfectly ok to change the angle of attack.
  5. Keep moving forward no matter what. Don’t look at the entire staircase and certainly, DON’T look back. Just look forward at the next step, and take it.
  6. If you fall down or face setbacks, get back up and start again from wherever you are. As long as you keep moving forward in the direction of your goals so much as you can, you WILL eventually hit your mark. Be persistent & resilient. Remember the sky is the limit and planning + action equals anything you set your mind to!
  7. Having an accountability partner or app is a great tool and way to keep us on course.

No-Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

No-Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Ok, I confess… It is nice to have a healthy sweet treat… There I said it!

I am on a no sugar diet, but every once in a great while I cheat…

The Importance Of Healthy Raw Ingredients

For most of you, you know that I utilize only organic, non-GMO raw ingredients in our mostly from-scratch diet and I have even taken that a step further when it comes to watching my sugar consumption. There are other great healthy and tasty alternatives to organic cane sugar. I utilize organic coconut sugar a lot in our kitchen and truly you do not forfeit the taste!

If you are making a healthy anything in your kitchen, the only way it is truly healthy is if the ingredients you are putting into it are the healthiest they can be! 

As you may also know, I go after the heart of my Men by means of their belly!

Yesterday, I decided along with our New Year’s meal that a sweet treat was in order and I decided something quick and simple was our favorite no bake recipe.

No Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

1 stick of butter (non-dairy Earth Balance)                      1 cup organic coconut sugar
3 tbsp cocoa                                                                    1 cup organic chocolate non-dairy chips
1/2 cup evaporated milk (organic cashew milk)

Mix together and bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute or until all ingredients are melted together.

Note: I put the cashew milk in the pan first to boil a bit to get extra water out to create my own evaporated milk and then I add the other ingredients.

Then add 1/2 cup Earth Balance peanut butter, 3 cups organic gluten-free quick oats and 1 tsp vanilla.

Drop by tsp or tbsp on non-bleached parchment paper and then refrigerate.

These are a quick, simple and healthy snack for the whole family!

What are your favorite quick and easy desserts?

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

2019 is here!

2018 went SO very fast, it is hard to believe another year is passed! We are thankful for the new year though for a New Beginning!

New Beginnings is our theme for the new year. We embraced 2018 focusing on Living With Intention. Living by our terms and remembering much clearer why we embarked on this off-grid journey in the first place.

Our year was a rough year for our family as it may have been for you and yours too. It is easy to get tired, weary and even lose faith while you go through rough times, but I hope as we walked this year together that you gained hope, perseverance and were encouraged when we wouldn’t give up and kept our focus on the Lord! You know each day is a gift, right?!
We are gifted daily with a New Beginning and we need to remember that when we do get knocked down that we just need to get up, brush ourselves off, keep moving forward and always looking up!

Despite going through a rough spot, having a heart and mind focused on gratitude can make the world of difference. When you keep your eyes focused on the daily blessings and keep your thoughts, minds and self-talk monitored so that a negative can quickly be corrected and replaced with something positive your world and life will change! Initially, it may not be easy, but as time goes on I think you will see how easy it really is! This is the perfect time of year to look back over a gratitude journal to remember all the amazing things that happened throughout the year! If you don’t currently use a gratitude journal I would like to encourage you to start for 2019 because it will be an aid for your New Beginning!

Here are my means of setting goals:

  1. Think longterm. Visualize what your life looks like one year, 5 years and 10 years from now.
  2. Break your long-term goals into short-term goals and set a timeline to achieve them.
  3. Take small, doable actions toward achieving them every day.
  4. Re-evaluate often. Don’t be afraid to change course, make new goals or even scrap old goals if they no longer fit your longterm vision for your future. If things aren’t working it is perfectly ok to change the angle of attack.
  5. Keep moving forward no matter what. Don’t look at the entire staircase and certainly, DON’T look back. Just look forward at the next step, and take it.
  6. If you fall down or face setbacks, get back up and start again from wherever you are. As long as you keep moving forward in the direction of your goals so much as you can, you WILL eventually hit your mark. Be persistent & resilient. Remember the sky is the limit and planning + action equals anything you set your mind to!
  7. Having an accountability partner or app is a great tool and way to keep us on course.

Every day is a gift and a new chance to start over and get it right, but a new year offers new hope in ways that other days of the year just can’t. Remember, every year will bring ups and downs so rather than focusing on a new year turn your focus to each day. How is that for breaking it down – clearer picture – baby steps – one day at a time.

My wish for you this year is that you dream big. Set big, scary goals for yourself. Have a vision. Talk nice to yourself, encourage yourself and show yourself grace.  Make a plan. Take small actions every day toward achieving them and don’t let anything or anyone hold you back from seeing them through.

God bless! Tam ♥ †

How I Treated Anaphylaxis Without The ER

How I Treated Anaphylaxis Without The ER

 

PLEASE Note: The protocol below is what has worked for me. I recommend that if you have similar symptoms as I mention below that you seek medical attention, but I am sharing the below in the event that you are experiencing the same and there is no medical facilities available to you. I am not a medical doctor and I am merely sharing my experience. I do expect you to do your due diligence and seek medical attention for yourself or your loved ones!

I have been on a natural medicine journey since I was fourteen and I have learned so much over the years,but I have learned so much about the body and healing specifically over the last three years on my healing journey. For those of you that are new to following us, I had life-saving surgery in 2016 and since have become a huge advocate to help save the lives of others. You can read that story here.

Through this process of healing from biotoxins, heavy metals and silicone I have learned a lot and experienced a lot. As a result of my illness, my immune system is impaired and things that never would have bothered me before have become life-threatening to me now. While I walk this journey, I have been sharing this process and what I have learned in an effort to help others with the same illness as well as others that may experience the same thing as a result of other immune system impairing illnesses.

Eye Drops That Nearly Killed Me

As I write this it is Sunday, December 9th, two days prior on Friday our family visited the eye doctor just for a yearly checkup that was WAY overdue and to get the obviously new prescription that was needed – especially for me as I have been unintentionally lengthening my families arms so that I can see! 🙂

They administered the eye drops, first the numbing eye drop. When I started to dab the drops with a tissue and realized they were fluorescent yellow something deep within me twitched. These were to aid the doctor in checking my eyes under the blue light as well as numb the eye so they could administer the second drops to dilate my pupil. . We went about our appointment getting all our eyes checked, glasses picked and then went about our day.

On the way home I experienced quite the headache and suspected it was a result of my pupils being dilated and it was a bright day so I didn’t think much of it. Got home, enjoyed dinner and then I sat and watched a movie with the Mountain Man Jr. As I was watching the movie, I realized that my hands were getting really dry and sore and that my body was beginning to hurt all over as though I might be coming down with something. Being we were at the clinic where there were sick people it was very likely I was coming down with something. I treated myself with essential oils and natural cold remedies as a preventative measure and went to bed.

When I woke on Saturday I realized right away that I was lucky to have woken at all. I woke with a very strong tin taste in my mouth indicating heavy metals and my face and hands were EXTREMELY swollen. Had my hands been any more swollen I would have needed to cut my ring off my hand. That ring normally nearly falls off my hand so I had swelled greatly. I instantly realized that it was not the onset of a cold, but a reaction to the toxins that were in the eye drops.

Now I would like to point out here that in my younger days when the Mountain Boy Jr. was only a couple of days old I had a routine allergy shot that went south. I am guessing because my body was recently stressed with his birth that I had a negative reaction to my weekly allergy shot that I never had a problem with prior, but as a result of that shot I needed an adrenaline shot so I truly KNOW the severity of such a situation, but over the last three years I have also experienced the same situation MANY times and I was able to naturally work through it.  Not to mention, I have NO idea how my body will react to anything else that might be administered at the ER including an adrenaline shot!  So, I’d like to make it VERY clear that if YOU are experiencing such symptoms, if medical assistance is available, PLEASE do NOT mess around!

What Worked For Me

OK back to this situation, I started treating myself to try to remove the inflammation and fluid by drinking dandelion and milk thistle tea. The dandelion is a diuretic and the milk thistle would help my liver to process all the toxins. I also added nettle and red clover. The nettle will help with allergies and excess histamine in my system and the red clover is an aid in cleaning the blood.

Since my surgery, my body reacts to anything foreign in a very drastic way so something as simple as eating a food with a GMO can be deadly so I only eat if I am 100% sure that the food I am eating is safe. It makes eating a bit overrated, but I would much rather be safe than sorry otherwise I can expect at least a minimum of 4 days down on my back as a result. So since we have experienced this before, I also got out my peppermint, lavender and lemongrass essential oils. Those together, rubbed on the chest also help with extreme allergies and can be used in place of an EpiPen, but I recommend you seek medical help if available to you. We do have an EpiPen available as well as Benadryl, but they are only used as a last resort because we have no idea how my body will react to them. The EpiPen specifically.

I personally avoid taking anything man-made because more often than not, my body will react poorly to it. We have opted not to seek medical attention because if a medical doctor is not familiar with my illness (which most are not) they will start pumping medicine into my body via pill or iv and my body could very well react poorly to those as well causing me to be in a worse condition then when I arrived.

After waking on Saturday, I also took:
1. Milk thistle supplements in addition to the tea
2. Nettle & Quercetin supplements for the allergy or histamine reaction
3. Metallo Clear which is a metal detox to help get the metals out of my system (I have a mutated gene that keeps me from breaking down metals)
4. Activated charcoal which will help bind and absorb the toxins that are now in my guts. I prefer to use liquid bentonite clay and psyllium husk daily, but I had run out. The benefit of taking the bentonite clay and psyllium husk daily is because I am regularly detoxing and it binds the toxins and keeps them from reabsorbing into the body. If the body can not rid the toxins fast enough, additional sickness will occur as a result of reabsorption. It is also a safe-guard for times like this that I am accidently administered something that my body will fight which again would have absorbed it and eliminated the extra days of sickness and struggles. The bentonite clay and psyllium husk are great to take for anyone detoxing and those with Lyme disease to absorb and bind the die off.
5. I also drained my face of fluid and drained my lymphatic system.  The drain your lymphatic – I did this video to demonstrate what you need to do first to successfully drain your lymphatic and this is a great video that shows you how to drain your face.

  1. I also used Magnesium Oil on my neck and chest to loosen those muscle that so badly wanted to tighten.

  2. I incorporate regular, bentonite and coffee enemas into my healing routine and this is something that will help rid the body of the excess toxins quicker as well.

I did ok during the day Saturday, but as we went into the evening I started to wheeze, my tongue and chest were getting heavy and I realized I had a build up of histamine in my body. When you lay flat at night it increases the swelling and reaction so I slept propped up. I avoid taking medication at all costs, but because my symptoms were worsening I needed as many antihistamines in my body as possible so I took a Benadryl. I was also drinking olive leaf, nettle and holy basil tea because they are antihistamines and would help in lowering my histamine levels. I readministered the essential oils as well and was still drinking a LOT of tea and taking quercetin and nettle capsules as well which is a natural form of Benadryl. The Mountain Man also gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom so I asked him to wake me so we could check my condition and readminister whatever might be necessary.

I slept till noon on Sunday which does not happen often, but I was very swollen still. So I knew I had to do additional things to get the fluids out of my system. When this has happened in the past it usually takes a minimum of 5 days to get full relief of the symptoms. I also learned in the past that if my body was swollen to this degree trying to take a hot soak to relax my body is not the best choice under these circumstances because the heat increases the swelling and the histamine reaction.

I did two ionic foot baths to help pull the toxins through the feet. I then rode my exercise bike vigorously for 11 miles to work up a good sweat. When I completed that I was able to remove my ring from my finger and had eliminated some fluid. I also drank over 90 oz of fluid throughout the day. Water Water Water….and tea. I did two harmonic quad foot soaks (more on this later) which will help remove the toxins as well from the body and following those soaks I rode the exercise bike again for 14 miles. I was experiencing great relief at this point, but I was still not out of the woods.

I took a hot shower and then ended the shower with a cold shower/soak. This evening I am starting to feel human. Michael on our Facebook page suggested a homeopathic remedy Belladona which was actually a good recommendation. It works very well with asthma symptoms. It is a supplement that I do have on hand also, but have gotten accustomed to what works best for me and have just stuck with that.

We talk and educate ALL the time on the importance of being prepared in every aspect of our lives and this is a perfect example why it is SO important for us with our location to have a fully stocked herbal pantry and also having the knowledge and resources to know what to use for what and to know your body well enough to be able to read it and accommodate it.

Here are a couple of books I feel you should have in your hardcopy library:

  1. Be Your Own Doctor
  2. Natural Remedies Encyclopedia

We are SO careful what we put in and on our bodies and I have to say, I honestly never considered the toxicity of those eye drops. Not everyone’s body is as sensitive as mine, BUT the more you remove toxins from your diet and your homes the more effected by toxins you will become. It is important to remove all this garbage from our systems and it is also important for you to consider the effects of things in the future.

Sunday evening my eyes were just a touch swollen and my hands are almost back to normal. Knowing what to do when things happen is very important. This was a freak incident, but since my surgery freak incidents are common for me so being on alert is important. One of the benefits I have in ensuring my good health is our lifestyle. We know our well water is safe and toxin free, we know where our food comes from, I do not experience the heavy frequency from grid power and my life is what I make it and is influenced by me, not outside things that I cannot control so I am nestled in a safe haven and able to heal myself. There is definitely a time for western medicine, but I choose to practice eastern medicine before turning to something I have lost a LOT of faith in.

Something else I want to mention is that I allow God to guide me. The holy spirit plays a huge role in my ability to self diagnose and the intuneness I experience with my body. It is important that you do not panic in any situation, but stay calm and assess the situation. By choice, I am very open-minded and very intune with the holy spirit which has helped me greatly on my healing journey.

As I stated above, it is important that you seek medical attention for such a situation, but if you are unable to seek medical attention these are some ways that you can aid your body.

Just a little side note.  I am posting this on our website on December 27th which is 20 days after this incident and I am still having struggles with my lymphatic system clogging and having to continue heavy metal detoxing as a result of something as simple as eye drops so PLEASE be an advocate for yourself and your family!   Also be aware how toxic things are in our world and seek healthier options.

Love and prayers,  Tam ♥
