Firstly, I have been asked to convey this important teaching:
‘We eat foods that our bodies are not designed to efficiently process and subsequently the damage inflicted as a result causes illness and disease. We develop aches and pains which we treat with painkillers without imagining they are caused by the food we eat. We have become devoid of our responsibility to ‘self’ and fail to understand the link between our physical selves and spiritual selves which is culminating in a disastrous effect on humanity itself as we become further removed from God and all that is good and move towards an era reflecting man’s inability to realise we are being sucked into a never ending cycle perpetrated by the pharmaceutical companies who lead us to believe there are no alternatives to their products because they have a cure for all. With this in mind, it now seems acceptable for us to carry on abusing our bodies so we continue eating foods which make us ill and overweight and take tablets to treat the symptoms of our illnesses while the cause remains and our submissiveness to those handing out our prescriptions and medication persists. As a race, mankind cannot continue shovelling the vast amounts of pharmaceutical products down our throats in the hope they will fix us in the long term. Joanne’s diet and subsequent healing that has taken place within her body has proved that good physical health and spirituality are implicitly linked and at this time it’s vital we all explore the concept of spirituality which will assist not only in our healing but ultimately that of Mother Earth’s.’
When I first wrote an article about Marie my body elemental back in July, I was unaware of both the nature and the importance of the diet I had just started at the time. This diet has been unlike any other diet I’ve tried in the past. Not only has it enabled me to lose about 35 lbs (16kgs) but it’s also cut my risk of developing cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other life threatening and degenerative conditions. This is because it’s a diet which works at cellular level causing the most incredible changes and healing to occur within the trillions of cells in my entire body through the removal of toxins, regulation of all hormones, and the control of inflammation. It seems the latter is the cause of most illnesses and chronic health conditions of this day and age.
For a cell to be healthy toxins causing its inflammation must be flushed out before nutrients can move in. At least two litres of water must be consumed daily. It’s imperative not to drink sparkling water because the carbon dioxide which causes the fizz and bubbles is a waste product and must be removed by the body to stop it reaching toxic levels. Your body requires energy to perform this and therefore it makes sense to eliminate all fizzy drinks from your diet.
The importance of my dietary regime which is meat-free, highly nutritious, full of protein, and low in sugar and grains cannot be under estimated as it contains all the food needed to supply my body with the essential nutrients required to promote healing at cellular level and healthy cell function.
Briefly, I eat an array of different lentils and pulses, fresh fruit and vegetables, and my diet also includes nuts, seeds, fresh fish, one or two eggs a week, a small amount of grated cheese, cow’s milk, full fat yoghurts (they contain alot less sugar than fat-free yoghurts and also fat is essential for the absorption of some vitamins and minerals, in particularly vitamin D and magnesium). I have an occasional cake or pastry providing they’re free from animal fats and still eat a piece of dark chocolate daily. I have half a glass of red wine before my evening meal.
I cook meals requiring a wide selection of Indian spices and use black pepper on a daily basis. Spices are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it seems they have definitely promoted and assisted with the healing which has taken place inside my body, making my diet more effective.
I buy local seasonal fresh produce wherever possible either at a Farmer’s Market or from a roadside stall in the village because not only can I be assured it’s fresh and organically grown, but also for this reason – to be at one with Mother Earth and dance to her rhythm you need to connect to the cycles of nature close by and eating local produce in season will help you achieve this.
Thanks to the nature of my diet created by Marie specifically for my body, the weight loss has been gradual and my skin hasn’t lost its tautness and I’m becoming more toned as my exercise regime becomes easier and therefore more frequent.
I have lost weight from all over my body in what seems like equal proportions – my back, waist, hips and stomach are noticeably leaner, as are my legs but I look neither skinny nor gaunt. My arms, hands, feet and face haven’t escaped the weight loss either. I have noticed a remarkable difference in my skin. It’s regained its youthful appearance and suppleness all over, including my face. My facial skin tone is more even due mostly to drastically reducing my intake of gluten, sugar and red wine to a very minimal amount, restoring its healthy glow.
I’ve discovered my zest for life and I am reminded of how I felt before the responsibilities of adulthood weighed me down, prompting childhood memories from many years ago, and as I recall these I remember the happiness I felt at the time combined with the optimism and hope I held for the future, while ‘care-free’ feelings and joy fill my entire being to uplift me, raising my vibrations.
I hope this article has inspired and encouraged you to further embrace the idea that you can take control of your body to achieve weight loss and the physical good health you desire. I can assure you too that in the process your spiritual well-being will receive a massive boost and you will soon feel that you really are part of Earth’s natural order.
Appreciating that we are all part of nature and interwoven with Mother Earth brings an understanding of the importance of healing our body and aligning to our true selves.
