God definitely made us...

Luke 12:7 says "And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows."

This verse spoke volumes to me when I read it for probably the 400th time one day a few years back.  We know that God made us so very UNIQUE!!  So unique, in fact, that learning about my food allergies from a simple blood test would change the course of my life FOREVER!!

I was reminded today listening to the radio on a XM station from Ryan Seacrest of all people, that our blood is like no others, and we can diet and exercise til the cows come home...but God made us unique, and finding out what is good just for YOU to eat and NOT eat for that matter...is crucial!!

Three years ago, you would not have recognized me...if you knew me then like you know me now.  I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and basically every gland issue you can have.  Not to mention all the trips to the bathroom after eating certain foods.  I knew where EVERY bathroom was in every restaurant and store because if any of you have food allergies or intolerances, you know they hit you hard and fast!!  I would sleep (with the help of pills of course) 9-10 hours and wake up exhausted!!  My whole body hurt just to move not to mention if anyone wanted to hug me or touch me, I cried it hurt so much!!  I would come home from teaching and fall on the couch in pain and from complete major fatigue.  It was a nightmare on me, my family and my marriage.

I had an episode due to an event of high stress that sent my body into crash and burn overdrive!  I went to the hospital, and they thought I was having a major anxiety attack after a minor stroke.  My world and my body had gotten to the point of no return.  SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE!!

Luckily, I have a wonderful doctor who is not only great with western medicine but also holistic medicine as well.  He gave me all my diagnoses and the list of meds that I would have to take for the rest of my life, and I took a stand and said "Heck No!!"  I wanted a solution...not a band aid!  He agreed, and we decided to figure out how my diet was causing all of these symptoms so....

Three days later (one day after my 37th birthday) I got my ALCAT TEST done and patiently waited for the results.  They came two weeks later in a nice, organized folder with "sections" colored in green, orange, and red.

I heard Ryan Seacrest talking about his testing he just got his results back for today on air, and he too has been changed for the better....for good!

I will be back later this week to share with you what all was on my "lists" and how I took charge of who God made me to be!!  Also, how my journey with food allergies and intolerances helped my son two years into my journey of change.

Helping one another make real changes for the purpose of a great life!!

Many Blessings,
