Agave Nectar: It’s Harmful, Doctor’s Say

What I found?  Doctors are saying that, although agave nectar is low glycemic, it’s really no better for us than high fructose corn syrup.

Years ago, when I was sick, I purchased Agave Nectar for the first time at a local health food store.  The clerk knew I was struggling with Metabolic Syndrome (Pre Diabetes) and blood sugar issues.  She had a shocked look on her face and told me she is surprised I can tolerate agave nectar because a lot of diabetics can’t.  That sparked my interest, so I went home an researched it.

What I found?  Doctors are saying that, although agave nectar is low glycemic, it’s really no better for us than high fructose corn syrup.  In fact, agave nectar is higher in fructose than High Fructose Corn Syrup!!  But why does that matter?  It matters because consuming too much fructose puts us at risk for obesity and weight gain.  It affects how our body releases a hormone called leptin, which aids in appetite control, and also causes our body to store fat.

I stopped using Agave nectar immediately.  Initially, I had to cut sugars out of my diet completely in order to exploit my body’s own natural healing capabilities.  Now I’m able to tolerate sweeteners and my sweeteners of choice are honey, maple syrup, and jaggery 🙂

If you want more scientific information, Doctor Mercola shows lab results on agave nectar here, and explains why it’s not good for us.  Doctor Oz explains it on his site here.

This is not the End. It’s never the end.

Today my Auntie Sherril was laid to rest. She transitioned this week. I say transitioned, because I do not believe we ever die, but rather the energy of our Spirit simply transitions to another dimension (or location).

I spent three hours just sitting with my aunt yesterday at the funeral home. I feel so blessed to have had this time with her. We cried together and laughed together. I saw her Spirit exit her body. She was hovering to the left of me, laughing. She was laughing because I was crying.. and in that split-second, I got it. Then I could only laugh through my tears. It was then that I rejoiced. I rejoiced in her transition and release from this Earthly body and all the wordly chains that often come bound to these vehicles. She is free! Her laughter always was infectious.

My aunt has taught me so much throughout this process; both while she embodied her Spirit and also after it was released from her physical shell. She taught me » Read more..

Overcoming Autoimmune Disease, Part 2: You Are What You Eat

GasEmptyFor someone with chronic illness, eating packaged food is like putting water in a gas tank and expecting the car to run.  What we put in our body is what the body uses to create our cells.  The body replaces cells every so often, depending on the cell.  For example, the normal life span of a red blood cell is about four months (meaning that four months from now every red blood cell in your body will have died and been replaced with new ones).  The lining of the gut is rebuilt approximately every 28-29 days.  It is said that, after 7 years, the body has replaced every cell.  Think about how powerful that is.

If we potentially have 70-85% influence influence on whether or not the disease process is triggered in our body, and we know the body replaces every cell after a seven year period, then just think of how much influence and power we have over the direction of our own health!  So what does the body use to rebuild these cells?   » Read more..

Auspicious Mantra for Sun in Leo

It is a scientific fact that the celestial bodies have great impact to Earth and it’s inhabitants.  The sun and moon both influence the tides of the ocean, and the Farmer’s Almanac reveals when is a good time to seed or plow based on these celestial influences.  Heck, even U.S. surgeons are reporting from scientific studies that patients undergoing heart surgery have a lower death rate if they’re operated on during the waning moon!  That’s pretty powerful evidence, right there.

Overcoming Autoimmune Disease, Part 1: The Odds Are In Your Favor

Diabetes, Guillain-Barre syndrome, Pacreatitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Narcolepsy, Endometriosis, Hashimotos, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Restless Leg Syndrome:  What do they all have in common?  They are all Autoimmune (or autoimmune related) ‘diseases’ and, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, close to 50 million people in the United States alone suffer from Autoimmune Disease.  I used to be one of them, but I no longer suffer.

I found out that autoimmune disease is only 15-30% genetic and a whopping 70-85% environmental!!!  But what does that mean?!   » Read more..

Finding My Marbles (Miracle Monday)

In my psychic development class, I was told to get 22 distinctly different rocks for divining. While discussing this with my teacher, Spirit & my angels kept telling me that I need to go to my dad for marbles, instead of using rocks. They kept showing me a jar of marbles in my mind’s eye, which looked like a pickle jar, with a red lid.   

So I called my dad and asked if he had 22 distinctly different marbles that I could Marbleshave. I told him that my angels told me to come to him. He said yes. While I was on the phone with him, his wife said, “Now how did she know we had 22 marbles?!”. I said, “I didn’t! I’m just following what my angels told me to do!”.  Love my angels. They never steer me wrong! » Read more..

The Cleanse That Changed My Life (Wellness Wednesday)

MasterCleanseBookOne of my biggest ‘aha’ moments in saving my health, was when I went on this cleanse.  My brain was having seizure activity and my Neurologist wanted me to go on an anti-seizure medication.  This video explains about the research I did, why I chose an alternative route, and my experience with the Master Cleanse.  This cleanse quite literally changed my life.

Prior to doing the cleanse I was tired all the time, fatigued, and felt like my head was in the clouds – or a veil of… smog was taking over my brain.  I couldn’t think clearly, I couldn’t track conversations, I could barely comprehend what I was reading, and I was getting lost in the town I grew up in.  It was awful. » Read more..

Soulystic Sunday: Shifting Out of Guilt

Have you ever found it difficult to say no?  Me too!  But I am transitioning out of that vibration and so can you!  Be forewarned!  If you continue to read, the Universe is likely going to support your shift out of that vibration also, and bring you repeated opportunities to stand in your Truth and say no.

Rest assured, as you continue to do this, it will become easier and more comfortable each time.  I’m actually getting quite good at it now!  And the guilt associated with saying no?  It’s gone!  Here are some things I learned in the process of shifting out of guilt and into happiness: » Read more..
