Profile Information

What are your dietary, natural health or green living interests and/or restrictions (or, more generally, why are you interested in joining this site)????
Whole natural foods preferably Organic. Another reason for joining is to help others out in their journey of Health and to help them find what they are looking for. When I was searching and still am to some degree, it would have been nice to find other like minded people to bounce ideas off of.
How did you hear about this site?
Christy is a good friend who told me about her site

A little about me.

I will update this as I have time.... here is a beginning.
We changed our way of thinking about 10 years ago and it has been a journey...
We start our health journey with the Feingold artificial colors, preservatives, or flavorings, no sugar but we didn't get to much into the salicylate (Suh-LIH-Suh-Late). But do know people that this helped a lot. This helped my daughter with her drastic mood swings and I stopped having headaches all the time. After these changes happened we knew that food does effect your mind and body. We then started drinking raw milk. This was because it tasted better but now know all the health benefits from it. The next step of our journey was a Celiac diet (no gluten). We were very strict with this and felt better but after a year was questioning it. So we wanted to see if we were Celiacs or had a wheat intolerance. We were told to eat gluten products for 2 weeks and then get tested. This was on of the worst 2 weeks of our life. My husband was not his funny carefree man I married, our kids were so uptight, bickering all the time and I was very foggy brained. The test came back negative. We were told by a new friend about Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and how she talks about proper care of grains to help in digestion. We tried this out and as long as we properly prepared our grains we did FINE. We followed these whole food guidelines and were fine but never improved our health, to have more energy etc. We stayed on this type of diet (still use a lot of principles from NT) for 4 years..Then a friend asked if we would read this book (he didn't have time) We Want To Live by Aajonus Vonderplaniz. This is a primal diet eating everything raw even Meat, Poultry and Fish. This helped us out a lot.....MORE LATER

Here is a list of books that have been helpful in our journey of Living healthy
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon
We Want To Live by Aajonus Vonderplanitz;
The Milk Book by William Campbell Douglass, MD;
Enzyme Nutrition Dr. Edward Howell;
You can heal your life, Louise L. Hay;
These are a few will put more up later

I like both of your quotes. I've never heard the one: "Even if you can....should you?" That is GREAT! If Enzyme Nutrition is the book you told me about previously, I'd love to borrow it (if you own it) once I'm done with your other book :-)
