Happy Thanksgiving, Friend!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿงก How Gratitude Makes You Healthy

Hi, Friend!

First, happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the US!! I pray that you find many, many things to be grateful for today, and that your heart is full!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ‚ In the last several months of my weekly walks/jogs with a friend, my friend and I have shared 10 things each time that we're grateful for, and it's been awesome! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ It is a practice that has helped me get my heart, emotions and mind right for the day. It's become an enjoyable habit that has been even more important and impactful on days that are extra hard. Practices of gratitude, a positive emotion, strengthen the immune system and strongly supplement any cancer healing or prevention protocol!! Negative emotions, on the other hand, have the opposite effect....


In recent months I learned firsthand how suppressed emotions (as mentioned in Dr. Kelly Turner's Radical Remission/Radical Hope (pp. 144-145) research) suppress the immune system and lower the voltage of the cells in your body, decreasing health and vitality, as described in Dr. Jerry Tennant's book, Healing is Voltage and Dr. Diana Wright's award-winning documentary, The Unbelievable Plight of Mrs. Wright.


I woke up one Sunday morning in late June with fatigue, sensitivity to light, general malaise, stiffness in my neck and a big red bullseye on my skin. It was Lyme disease! Eek. I started treatment by taking a homeopathic remedy called Ledum and felt immediate relief, which was pretty cool - I hadn't tried or experienced the power of homeopathy up until that point! However, the relief was short-lived and didn't provide long-term healing, so I also took an antibiotic, Doxycycline, for 3 weeks and I've had little to no symptoms since then. Yay!

So, how did I end up with Lyme disease? Well, I believe it's because of suppressed emotions...resisting reality, and not living in harmony with God's plan. I found myself in an unexpected, difficult place, running away from God, which I never thought I'd do. It felt awful. ๐Ÿฅบ I had believed that I could get away with things that really, I couldn't, and wouldn't. My life did not turn out how I imagined it would be. I was refusing to do the things that God had placed in my heart, and because I didn't want to hear God's voice speaking to me, I stopped seeking God and reading His word. My life became very empty, awful, sad, scary, lonely and hopeless. I didn't see how I could continue on.

However...


God sought me out and extended grace and ble
