-For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it-
So Dr. Sultan Told Us that Allie Was Allergic to ‘Mold’…it’s not the mold that builds up in a wet basement, but it is a mold that lives and grows inside the intestines called, Candida Albicans – Often referred to as a ‘Yeast Overgrowth.’
You See every Man or Woman has both Good and Bad bacteria in their bodies… When the bad bacteria outnumbers the good bacteria…food allergies are born.
However, these Food Allergies/Sensitivities are actually just a symptom…not the root cause. These allergies are a reflection of the imbalance of organisms inside of the digestive tract…trying to tell US that there are invaders growing in the intestines!!
Many of Us are experiencing these symptoms…although not realizing it…because We are accustomed to taking a pain pill or little Benadryl to suppress Our discomforts.
But Our bodies are trying to communicate to Us…that it’s Immune Sytem is overwhelmed!!
Most people don’t realize that 80% of Our body’s immunity (the body’s ability to fight sickness and disease) lies in the small intestines.
So in essence…Our body’s (external) condition is a direct reflection of the body’s (internal) condition…Inside of Our digestive tracts!!
You really Are…What You Eat!!
Our body does not recognize many of the pre-packaged, processed foods that we eat in our homes and/or restaurants.
Nor does the body recognize the hi-fructose-corn syrup that’s in most of our sweet beverages.
And the body certainly does not recognize the ‘man-made’ additives, preservatives, pesticides/herbicides, hormones, steroids, etc. that ‘Man’ has mixed in…sprayed on…and injected into Our Food!!
All of these things contribute to killing our ‘friendly’ or good intestinal bacteria – This condition is called, Intestinal Dysbiosis.
This is where many of Our sicknesses and diseases begin!!
It is an imbalance in digestive flora – (good gut bacteria vs. bad gut bacteria) – This dysbiosis produces inflammation in the gut…leaving Your last meal partially undigested in the gut!!
So Where does this undigested or partially digested meal Go??
It will try to go up…if it can’t get out – This is why many people experience Acid Reflux, which is nothing more than a dirty digestive tract where bad bacteria can live and grow!!
Also…because many of Us are not ‘regular’…these partially digested meals never make it out of the constipated body.
Most doctors consider an individual to be constipated, if he/she does not have a bowel movement three times/week.
That is unacceptable!!
God designed our bowels to move every 8 hours…on average…so if Our bowels are not moving at least once/day…and Our feces is hard as a rock because it’s been trapped in the body 2-4+ days…Then We ARE definitely experiencing Constipation!!
Consider this!!…If We are eating, on average, three meals/day…but only eliminating 1 of those meals/day…then 2 meals are still left trapped in the body!!
It’s Simple Math…3-1=2!!
Those 2 trapped (partially digested) meals begin to rot and mold inside of the body.
When the pipes of Our body’s sewer system gets clogged up…the waste begins to putrefy and pollute the bloodstream..causing the organs to suffer!!
The longer these toxins remain trapped in the intestines…the longer they are recycling through the bloodstream, polluting the bloodstream and causing all 78 of Our organs to suffer. Particularly, the liver…whose job is to filter invaders out of Our bloodstream.
Now Remember…We had cleaned Allie Out!!
She was no longer Constipated, but the Candida overgrowth had a ‘strong-hold’ on her health and this yeast was hiding in her intestines and invading her bloodstream.
Candida…like any organism, does not want to die…So it will Fight to Live!!
So…Allie’s little body was working overtime…making histamine – to try to flush-out these invaders (allergens) which had fought past her weak, and overworked liver.
So here…again…comes the oozing and itching, shortly after each meal…because Allie’s little organs were constantly at work…struggling to eliminate these toxins from her body…but they could not!!
So Dr. Sultan put Allie on the ‘Elimination Diet.’ This Diet gave her Liver a chance to Rest…while We were introducing God’s Healing Herbs into her body.
Dr. Sultan explained that it can take 4-6 days for any food to be completely eliminated from a body that is functioning properly.
So…Our instructions were to remove All Foods from her diet and to introduce only 1 single-ingredient food (with no additives, pesticides, herbicides, etc.) into her diet every 4-6 days -for example – Organic spinach.
We decided to Try…Every 4 days vs. 6.
So…on Sunday, Mon, Tues, and Wednesday…Allie could only eat Organic Spinach for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner…and for snacks.
We blanched the fresh spinach leaves in hot water and added only sea salt. And when we saw no allergic reaction…Then We deemed Spinach a ‘safe’ food for Allie.
Now…On Thursday, We were able to add a second (single-ingredient) food + the ‘safe’ Organic Spinach – for example – Organic chicken Backs.
We chose organic Chicken backs because they were affordable (with no hormones, steroids, or, additives, etc.).
We simply boiled the chicken…adding only sea salt and served it with the blanched spinach.
So We continued with this Elimination diet…introducing only (1) new food into Allie’s diet for Months on end.
While Allie’s liver was resting…Dr. Sultan began treating Allie with an oral anti-fungal medication to kill the ‘Yeast’ Overgrowth in her gut!!
When she completed the prescription anti-fungal…we continued to battle the yeast with herbs. We rotated the Anti-fungal herbs ‘Caprylic Acid,’ ‘Olive Leaf Extract,’ and ‘Oil of Oregano.’…while introducing ‘friendly’ or good bacteria into her intestines with the herb, ‘Kyodophilus.’
To feed her liver, We introduced the herb, ‘Milk Thistle,’ and for rebuilding her immune system, We introduced ‘Alpha-lipoic Acid.’
With each ‘safe’ meal, we also introduced herbal ‘digestive enzymes.’
We introduced a daily ‘green-drink’ rich in vitamins/minerals and amino acids to ‘cool’ down her inflamed body…and also, to feed and strengthen all the Organs in her body with optimum nutrition.
Also…There was ‘Cod Liver Oil’ and Fish Oil’ to continue to reduce attack the inflammation in her body.
God is So Awesome!!
He was healing Our Child…without aggressive prescription steroids and harmful antibiotics
He Was Showing Us that He Was The Almighty God and that He Would Receive the Glory For Allie’s Healing…but We had to Receive His Grace to Be Patient and To Learn To Trust His Ways…and Not ‘Mans!!’
-Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, and mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord-
God Planted A Garden in Eden…Full Of Trees, Plants, Fruits, Flowers…nuts and seeds to Nourish Our Bodies…These Are God’s Healing Herbs!!
If We Will Forsake Our Ways Of Feeding Our Bodies…And Return To Gods Ways Of Nourishing Our Bodies…Then HE WILL HEAL Our Bodies and Our Land…the ground from which His herbs come forth!!
God Loves You and So Do I!!
