10 ways that minerals have changed my life!
10 ways that
changed my life!
I get asked regularly in what ways minerals and the ‘Root Cause Protocol’ have changed my life… there are SO many, I struggled to shorten this list… but here’s something to have a think about.
1. Migraines are a thing of the past.
I used to get them from food, from hormonal shifts, from my neck being “out”, from twisting at the wrong time. I was always inflamed and I was a super-responder to histamines from food and stress.I no longer fearing migraines from the food I eat. Just yesterday I drank a full milkshake with dairy, cream and more – no migraine today. Mangos and bananas have been a LONG-term triggers – I now freely use them in my cooking.
A few years ago – look at something with high histamines = migraine 24 hours later. A mouthful in the past of those triggers would have been a blinding migraine where I would be in the ‘migraine shadow’ for days after it left.Now – histamine reaction? What is that? It’s not a common thing for me now. If I do get an inkling of a reaction – what do I do? Take some minerals!
2. Saving on medical costs.
Our family rarely visits the Doctor for typical sicknesses and even a-typical sicknesses. We rarely get sick now, and if we do, we kick it with our own immune system, quickly.
We have transitioned from spending $1000’s each year on various specialists, medicines for asthma, eczema, winter sicknesses, etc… to none – we do spend some on our mineral supplements and whole foods to deliver our ‘medicine’ (“let food be thy medicine“), but the cost is nothing like we used to spend!
3. Skin conditions – BE GONE!
No more eczema on my son (years of treatments before that, which never touched it)…… or dermatitis on my husband’s hands (15+ years worth of history – gone in 3 weeks).
4. No more asthma and breathing related problems for my kids.
My twins had been on preventative medications for years, two extreme bouts of pneumonia including hospital treatments. One of them literally spent 6 months straight on antibiotics as a toddler/preschooler and many times after that on shorter course. No medications have been needed in 3 years+.
5. My youngest and originally sickest child has NEVER required ANY invasive treatments, despite a serious diagnosis at 4 months old.
I started introducing mag when she was less than a year old. I slowly transitioned into adding more minerals to my regime, which helped her. We have watched our “allergic to the world” child grow and develop as ‘normal’ (whatever that is!) as we introduced more minerals to her and I.She started our journey having 15 ‘safe’ foods (both for her and me, since she reacted via my milk) and I suspect still reacting to some of those at a low level.We were told by the time she started school at 5, she may have 30-40 foods she would tolerate.Children with her diagnosis of ‘Eosinophilic Oesophagitis’ frequently have heavy intervention and challenges in their development – hospital visits, medications, elemental formula, very restricted diets, many days away from childcare and school (etc).
Instead, my daughter has never had a hospital visit, never drank elemental formula, never needed to see a doctor for an infection, or anything except her early childhood checks, vaccinations (though that’s another story) and occasional blood tests as we check her progress with her minerals.
She starts school in early 2018 and she can eat all except for about 30-40 foods now… and realistically, she probably can have many more of those on occasion without issue.
Her body is strong and resilient – we have even had other parents comment on how little time she is away from kindy even during the peak of sickness seasons!
6. Clarity of mind – the brain fog is gone!
I didn’t realise until the fog started to clear, just how foggy my mind had become for the years before…I can now cope with stress better than ever before – without a big metabolic crash, migraine or tiredness hitting!
7. My digestive system works more effectively!
Not only do I not get histamine responses now, but food generally ‘sits’ better too and goes through my body without causing discomfort. I never realised how much certain foods did this to me until it stopped!
8. Leg cramps are a thing of the past….
for both myself and my husband.
9. Regular, pain free periods
(sorry guys, I’m sure the females in your life will be happy to hear about that!). I have a history of PCOS and longer/irregular cycles, cramping and headaches/migraines tied in…. no more!
10. Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain that I have had for over 20 years has almost completely GONE.
It used to contribute to the migraines I dealt with many times each month… to many visits to my favourite osteopath, chiropractors, massage therapists, you name it just to keep it manageable.Now I have one maintenance visit to Bowen Therapy once every 4-6 weeks, and I don’t stagger to her door each month as I would for the other therapies!
