First I'd like to briefly talk about diet. Now I'm not a dietition, and I'm not gonna tell ya what to eat. What I am going to tell you is to listen to your body. If your body doesn't like a certain food, then don't eat it. It's that simple really. There are many times when we eat something and tell others that we love that certain food, but we we will surely regret it tomorrow...NO! Stop now! If you eat something that always bothers your stomach, or gives you some type of physical problem the next day, don't eat it. Your body will thank you later. Also, when I was working as a nurse, I was a diabetes educator, and if I had to tell one thing that I learned from my days as an educator, it would be to avoid too many carbohydrates and always eat some protein with your meals. All carbs break down to simple sugar in your body, and a small amount of protein (lean protein) with every meal helps your insulin levels to stay stable longer. Good sources of protein are: chicken, fish, turkey, eggs, legumes, and beans. Peanut butter is a good source of protein with an apple for a snack too! I love animals, but I do not believe in being a vegetarian. I think we are meant to eat meat; afterall, we have canine teeth! We are organisms made up of protein ourselves, so we need protein to survive. The diabetic diet is the perfect diet to follow really. A diabetic cannott eat a ton of sugar and not affect his or her health. And the same is true for everyone else: If you keep your carbs low, you'll not only feel better, but your immune system will pick up as well. I also believe, personally, that imitation sweeteners are not good. The body tastes something sweet, but doesn't get the calories. In a sense, the body ends up craving even more carbs. Also, sweeteners are not good for the kidneys and bladder. And diet soft drinks are often high in caffeine, which isn't good either. I think as long as you eat your regular food groups, you shouldn't need supplements. Talk to your doctor though, because many people being tested for certain auto-immune diseases and fibromyalgia have extremely low levels of vitamin D and B-12. You may need to take supplements of those. Prenatal vitamins may be a good source of both of those. It's important to get your Omega fatty acids, so if you are not getting those with your diet, look into getting supplements for those, such as flax seed oil or fish oil. Ask your doctor what is right for you. It will help with inflammation, high cholesterol, and even constipation. Also, I will add to this that you shouldn't abuse alcohol or drugs. You are killing thousands of brain cells as well as harming your liver and pancreas.
Another aspect to staying healthy or not is stress. It is important to have a hobby or something to busy yourself with when a part of your life becomes stressful. Instead of just becoming incapacitated in response to a stressful situation, I write in my journal, blog, walk or play with my dogs, meditate, play on facebook, pray,or do research. I have to give a part of my brain some relief from the stress. If you have a routine that is the same day in and day out, your mind will go numb from lack of stimulation. To prevent this, you should try different jobs or rotating your normal routine periodically. You can try meditation to change your focus. It also sharpens the mind. Meditation is pretty powerful in that it can be active, rewarding, and relaxing all at the same time. It is very good for affirmation of your goals too. The mind will visualize, so that the body will follow suit. Sometimes when people get sick, and they change their lifestyle, job , or other stress-related factors, they will often actually get better. Well, even if that is not the case for you, if you follow this advice, at the very least, you will be healthier and happier.
Sometimes it isn't just the stress of this life, but the cell memories over the past lives into this one that affects our health. If you drowned in a past life, you could have a fear of water, because your cells, whether you remember it or not, can carry these memories from a past life to this life. Sometimes these fears and phobias don't appear until we reach the age we were when the trauma occurred in our past life. Birthmarks, too, can be scars of our past lives. Sylvia Browne had mentioned a woman with a brown birthmark on her back was shot with an arrow when she was a Cherokee in a past life. Now she is afraid of people sneaking up behind her and experiences severe pain in that area. If it is from cell memories of our past lives, we can release the fears we have left over and be safe today. We can then eliminate the physical and mental symptoms that these memories cause. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS see your doctor to get everything checked out to make sure first. Holistic an alternative therapies are nice adjuct therapies, I believe. I follow medical doctors advice first, though.
Lastly, I want you to be aware of your interactions with other people. Make a point of being aware of how other people affect us. You may have to be a bit of a detective, but you can do it. Many people that are excessively draining of your energy are so, not because they are bad people, but because they are just self-centered. You may find yourself constantly having to give out your energy to make them feel better. The answer may simply be a little bit of honest. First impressions are more accurate than most people may think. Listen to your first impressions--the more you listen, the more powerful your psychic ability becomes. Try trusting your instincts more. If you really enjoy being around someone, then this means that you are on the same wavelength. Chances are you rejuvenate each other. If you have an immediate bad vibe, they could be dark inside, or off your energy wave. Move on. If you feel neutral, a friendship would not be beneficial to either of you, and it could be quite boring. Even if it is a family member that is draining your energy, you must distance yourself from them. It can be done quietly without upsetting them. Children can be draining even though they are so pure, but it isn't their fault. We become zapped of our energy around them because we are over doing it. If you are feeling sick, look around you. Make sure you are following your doctor's advice first of all. But also see who you are with. Be completely honest with yourself and move on. If you are putting out a spiritual and giving vibe, the right people will be attracted to you.
