My Journey from Fibromyalgia to Food

If you know anyone who suffers from any chronic symptoms for which no one has found a solution, please share my return-to-health story with them! I’ve included the video version below or you can access the written version by clicking here, instead.

Reducing the amount of food additives in my diet back in 2007 relieved my Fibromyalgia symptoms beyond my wildest dreams – I truly “got my LIFE back”!

Did you know, for example, that the flavor enhancer MSG overstimulates the nervous system, causing and exacerbating a variety of conditions…and that it can be legally HIDDEN in foods under DOZENS of innocent-sounding names like “NATURAL FLAVOR” and “YEAST EXTRACT”? (Click here to check out my “Eating Additive-Free” Natural Cookbook & Grocery Shopping Guide that I created to help you start reducing the amount of food additives in your diet!)

Please take some time to listen to the recording below to learn how such additives may be affecting you, and feel free to share this post with ANYONE it may help.

You know you’re healthy when….

You know you’re healthy when…your spice cabinet is fuller than your medicine cabinet 😉

Six years ago, I owned exactly 4 spices: onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I didn’t know how to cook a thing from scratch. I was living on Lean Cuisine Meals, Slim Fast bars, diet soda and sugar-free chewing gum. If I “cooked,” it was things like Hamburger Helper or noodles with Velveeta melted on them. Oh, and some canned corn or green beans.

It honestly never occured to me that what I was putting in my mouth could’ve been contributing to my Fibromyalgia suffering, and my medicine cabinet was loaded with over-the-counter and prescription medications. I took many pills each day and tried all different kinds, but nothing really helped.

What did help me was reducing/eliminating the following things from my life: processed foods, medications, fragrances and chemicals (e.g, perfumes, hair spray, air fresheners).

Now I feel GREAT!

Do I ever get sick of cooking everything at home from scratch? You bettcha! Do I get bummed out about the constantly overflowing pile of dishes in my sink (and, who am I kidding….on the stove and counter, too!)??  Absolutely!!!

But I wouldn’t trade it for the world!! I feel better than I ever have in my life; I have no more Fibro symptoms; and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
