Overcoming depression

Overcoming Depression
Several times in my life I have suffered major depression. The first time was after the birth of my fourth child who was born two months after her father died. Grief and postpartum depression were major contributors. If I had known about fish oil supplements and how essential they are for brain health it could have helped me. Also, the homeopathic Ignatia is a good remedy for grief.
The second time I encountered depression was over 20 years ago when I ...had chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for five agonizing years. Chronic fatigue is not death but it takes your life away.
After four years I learned that candida is a major player in chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia and Neem pills and a change of diet can help get rid of candida. An alkaline diet helped me recover.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nutritional Consultant with a Ph.D in Holistic Nutrition it has been my passion to help other people recover from both depression and chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Over the years I have counseled and consulted with hundreds of people who have recovered or improved their health by changing their diet and adding supplements I do believe that mental health and most physical health problems begin in the gut as discussed in the books, "Gut and Psychology Syndrome," by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
and also "Nutrition and Mental Illness, " by Dr. Carl C Peiffer.
I think if someone is seriously depressed they should have blood tests to check for histamine levels, MTHFR, hormones,
pyroluria. blood sugar, zinc and copper levels, and more, depending on the existing symptoms.
Elan light therapy can be helpful for depression. I have seen amazing results using "The Emotion Code," by Dr Bradley Nelsen.
The important thing is there is help available. Most people with addictions have high histamine levels.

We are children of God

We are spirit children of God and could not progress without obtaining a body. We had to come to earth to gain a body and knew we would have to face trials here on earth. Just as diamonds are forged and polished with trials and adversity, we knew we would face trials and chose to do so. We were promised if we did this well we could obtain eternal life. We were eager to do this and some chose more trials than others. We are children of God on a divinely appointed earthly mission...n and that mission was assigned to us by God. He has promised He will not leave us comfortless and He would guide us and help us. He has promised us peace....not as the world giveth peace, but as He can give. He loves each of us....reach out and touch hold of the hem of the garment of Christ and feel virtue (healing) flow through you. If you are depressed or ill, visualize doing this.

Confusion about Inflamation & Autoimmune


 In his book, "Life Changing Foods," Anthony William writes about the confusion about inflamtion and auto immune disease. Some understabd this o mean the body is attacking itself. . The term autoimmune is is a mistake. In Greek, "Auto,'means 'self" so the word is that your immune system is attacking your own self. Truth is, the body never attacks itself. It attacks pathogens because the immune system is going after an invader such as a ...virus, or other herpetic viruses or in some cases certain bacteria.
When inflamation isn't the result of an injury, it is also the result of a pathogenic invader. For example, in colitis, the shingles virus burrows deep into the lining of the colon, which prompts the immune system to try and fend off the Microorganisms.
Triggers for autoimmune disease are direct fuel to viruses already present in a person's system. Any antibody activity is your immune system actively attacking a pathogen, not your own body.

My Recovery from Liver Cancer

 
I believe in God not because someone told me but because I have experienced his love & tender mercy in my own life.
After five years of feeling like I had the drop-dead flu and my debilitating battle with chronic fatigue, I finally recovered and then shortly after that found out I had liver cancer...small growth, but it was there. I knew, and my medical doctor knew I could not do chemotherapy.You can read about my recovery from chronic fatigue at http://irecoverdfromchronicfatigueandfibro.blogspot.com/
After my diagnosis of liver cancer, I thought I was going to die and decided I would spend the rest of my life writing letters to our children and doing genealogy. It was while I was at a Church family history center where I had gone to sign up to do family history, that I noticed a large portrait of the Savior hanging in the foyer. Seeking peace, I was attracted to the portrait and His image. There was no one else around so I paused to look into His eyes in the portrait thinking I was going to die. It was then I heard a voice within me-- His voice....call me by name and say, "You are going to be okay."
That was 23 years ago. It brought me great peace and I was okay

Prompting from Holy Ghost Saved My Sons' Life


 When my son, Ryan was a teenager he had an accident on his bike. He was riding down a hill
when a car ran a stop light and pulled in front of him and as he pulled on the brakes of the bike the seat of the bike walloped him
on the back and he shot through the air and landed on the grass next to the curb. My husband drove to pick him up.
When he walked downstairs he was very pale. He clutched his left ribs and headed straight for his bed. ...I asked if he wanted to go to the doctor. He insisted that he just wanted to go to sleep and he pulled the cover over his head. “I don’t have any broken bones, I’m not bleeding.” He insisted.
As I walked up the stairs, I felt impressed to call the doctor. The nurse didn’t take it too seriously since he wasn’t bleeding or didn’t have any broken bones. But when I said I’d just take him to the hospital she had the doctor on the phone in a few minutes. I was surprised at the words that came out of mouth. “I think he has a ruptured spleen.”
When they took x-rays at the hospital, he did have a ruptured spleen.
If the Holy Ghost had not prompted me, Ryan would have been dead by morning.

I am so grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost that has comforted and guided me so many times in my life. I want to testify that I know the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth, that the Book of Mormon is indeed the word of God, that Joseph Smith was a prophet and we have a prophet on the earth today, and that we are ALL children of God here on a divinely appointed earthly mission.

Candida and alcoholism frequently occur together and perpetuate one another.

Candida and alcoholism frequently occur together and perpetuate one another. It is unclear in some cases, which came first, the chicken or the egg; however, were you find one, you often find the other. This is due to the fact that yeast overgrowth can result in cravings for alcohol and the consumption of alcohol encourages the proliferation of yeast.

The following link discusses a  holistic approach to treating alcoholism.

Don't Crush My Chips....Behaving Nicely

Don't crush my chips... I loved the talk on Root Tech today about the father, Hank Smith,  who has family rules on how to fight nicely.
1. Don't call names
2. Don't touch so...meone who doesn't want to be touched
3. No hitting, ,,,etc

....and other famil y rules.
You can express feelings and use "I" messages.
You can leave the room,

and then he took a bag of dorritos and said negative things to the bag. Then he squeezed the bag of chips and crushed a chip for every negative thing he said...Then he would hold the bag up and say the bag looks okay on the outside, but inside there are crushed chips People are like that.....on the outside they look okay, but inside they are hurting.
So they have a saying in their family...."Don't crush my chips...." when they feel hurt.
