Had I stuck to what doctors, nutritionists, and even health-food experts had said, I would have ended up buried in data, research, statistics, and opinions and I probably never would have gotten healthy; and I definitely wouldn’t have experienced enlightenment. But I didn’t stick to what anyone else said – I cared about one thing and one thing only – finding an equilibrium way of eating and I didn’t care where it came from or what “rules” it broke.
And it broke all the “rules” – shattered them actually, and my own identity in the process; because I discovered equilibrium wasn’t about exercise and restricting fat and pleasure of ANY kind – it was about full-fat everything, eating as much as I cared to eat, and doing whatever made me feel good in my body! And that is the key – getting into your body and out of your head.
Ultimately, the Equilibrium Diet is rooted in the diets of primitive tribes untouched by modern society and modern convenience foods like wheat, sugar and pasteurized dairy; and the diet is also rooted in the natural cycle of the day. As humans we cycle with the sun and moon and before electricity, our night time activity was restricted. So we need more energy, more food and more fuel early in the day and virtually nothing before we go to bed. … More The Roots of the Most Powerful Diet on Earth
Unfortunately, today many Americans have very low immune systems and acidic bodies. Candida isn’t bad in it of itself; in fact, it is always around to help the body. Candida eats waste laying around in the body: toxins and food build-up that the body (particularly, the liver) hasn’t had a chance to deal with yet. However, this “candida employee” comes at a cost: it loves sugar and demands to be fed either with sweets or processed carbs; hence, it is behind many sugar cravings. Candida emits major gas as it eats—this equates to brain fog or feeling drunk, body aches, belching, flatulence or bloating, either intestinal or all over (I felt like I looked puffy or had the texture of a mushroom). So by hiring candida, the body gets some waste cleaned up, but it pays a price. … More What is Candida?
In 2010, I’d lived with chronic fatigue for over two years, my husband had lived with prostatitis for almost 5 years. I was sleeping 12 hours a night, taking a 2 hour nap during the day and I still never felt rested. It seemed like I woke up just as tired as when I went to bed. After two years, it was beginning to get depressing – I was just SO tired all the time. Back then I was in my early 20’s and they weren’t exactly roaring, if I were a car, I’d probably have been some 1970’s slow-moving clunker.
And I know I wasn’t the only one, I know countless women with “Hashimotos” (thyroid imbalances) suffering the same levels of exhaustion. … More How I Beat Chronic Fatigue Naturally in less than 3 months
