Manage your eating habits. Learn more in part three of this blog series entitled Seven Tips For Balanced Living.

 This is the third post of a 7-part blog series called Seven Tips For Balanced Living that shares specifically how our family improved our eating habits, living them out on a daily basis, so we could get our health under control.

Foods I Love that Make Me Sick, Overweight, and Miserable Have to Go

"12 I have the right to do anything," you say-but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"-but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both." 1 Corinthians 6:12-13

This Bible verse keeps rolling around in my head, and I think it's a good one to start the week off with. Part of what we've been discussing is going to extremes to get healthy. Whether it is walking out of social events where NEUROTOXINS are present, or saying no to foods you know trigger disease or an unhealthy lifestyle...

Sometimes We Have to Say "NO"!

Most people in this world are not willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to be strong and healthy. Most people would rather live with a little bit of extra weight, or a little bit of chronic disease, etc... rather than sacrifice in the short term to gain a lifetime of health.

Shocking Example

When we were looking for answers to my health issues, I had an ALCAT test done to determine my food sensitivities. When the test was performed, I got a phone call from the company physician. He told me I had one of the worst tests he had ever seen, then he said, "Are you having fevers, joint pain, unexplained illness, etc...?" My jaw hit the floor because no one had ever connected the dots of my health issues. He said, "If you don't get your gut health under control, you will have an auto immune disease within 6 months." Scary!

So, I had to have a talk with myself... All the foods I loved that were making me sick, overweight, and miserable had to go. I had to get radical- I lived for a year on about 10-15 foods that I rotated. I got all of my nutrition from 25 different supplements I took every day. Even then, autoimmune disease still came knocking on my door. So I started eating only one solid meal a day and drinking Green Smoothies otherwise. Finally, after a year of struggle, I am now close to remission.

Was it worth it to limit myself? Hands down the hardest but best decision of my life!

Libby Wright, mother of four who homeschools, is an original founder of in 2010. She suffered through challenging diseases including Interstitial Cystitis, Graves and Lyme. After years of little progress with traditional medicine, she pursued integrative medicine, applied what she learned, and got healthier. She became passionate about wanting others to experience the same "relief" she had come to know, and was born. She is now managing her illness with a lot of prayer, a lot of nutrition/supplements, and a little prescription medicine. She has been able to resume her normal life and, while there is no cure for her particular conditions, she is able to cope, enjoy every day, and encourage others.
