Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Have been off of my normal regimen of raw since December.  Received one of those dreaded phone calls December 3rd that my brother had had a near fatal car accident.  I boarded the plane the next day to go & be with my family in Arkansas.  Little did I realize that for the next 2 months my life would change dramatically.  I made the decision to stay at my parent's home and help out with my brother in his recovery.  As a Holistic Registered Nurse, I could not stand by & watch the Alopathic community be the major caretaker of my brother's health.  For any of you that have had extended hospital stays,  you know what it's like on your body to stay day in & day out at the bedside of a significant other.  Needless to say,  it took a toll that has taken me a great while to recover from.  Through the stress, both physically & emotionally, the black hole ended up getting really deep.  I didn't realize the support that I was experiencing from the Raw Food Rehab community and one of my besties back home~who is my fellow raw foodist, was more than I could imagine.  Of course, being in the hospital without wireless for my source of connection was more of a deficit than I realized.   Once I returned back to my home, I expected to get right back into the groove of things.  Well, much to my chagrin~NOT!  I physically was experiencing Adrenal Fatique, thus the Insomnia kicked back in.  Also, as a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist, I had within my experiences the things at hand that I needed to recover.  Even though the recovery has been slow, and many visits to my Kinesiologist/Chiropractor  I'm beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel.  I had been off of coffee for the last 3 years, that crept back into my life....foods that did not serve me, crept back into my life-thus, physiological changes that had not been a part of my life for a while, crept back in.  BUT, so many things happened to me both internally & externally I will someday have to share......blows my mind to even think of all the things(the good & the bad) that have transpired over the last 6 months-ALL FOR MY GOOD..............TODAY, is the first day of the rest of my life!!!  YAY, for lunch today I prepared The Happy Shake by Stacy Stowers.....wonderful, wonderful treat!  I am glad to be back into my RFR community and the support of some wonderful brothers & sisters.  You are a joy & a light but to God be the Glory, for His mercies are new every morning & great is His faithfulness!!

Fabulous post Rita....WOW....you've been on a journey for sure!  So happy to see you and I hope that your brother is back in the game and doing much better!  Every day that goes by will hopefully have you feeling better and better until your back in top form.  So lucky that we all get to have a fresh new start every day if we need it and you are off and running to your brand new life.  I hope that Happy Shake produced a happy dance as well cuz you sure deserve it!  Blessings to you and keep smiling!  XO
