Promoting Friday: WillowTreeMinerals

Taken from the Etsy Shop: Willow Tree Minerals. I do not own the rights to it, but I am promoting it. (Non paid)

Hello guys and gals! I'm deciding to promote others on Fridays now, and I thought a good way to start it off is by promoting people I buy from online.

My most favorite of all websites to buy from is Etsy, and most people on there like to create wholesome good products from non-toxic ingredients.

If most of you are like me, you are especially cautious about the products you use on your skin. I mean, our skin is our larget organ after all. So why shouldn't you take caution?

That's why I always buy vegan/natural make-up. That way I know it's not being tested on animals or will be harmful to my skin, especially since I battle acne rosacea.

So here it is, a wonderful etsy shop that sells makeup for a decent price and isn't bad for you! Yay!

I've ordered from Lora quite a few times, and the products are always wonderful. I've ordered foundation, eyeliner, mascara, and just the other day I bought nail polish.

This shop is wonderful, and I hope you support her and your skin. Thanks for visiting my post! I'll do another promotion post next Friday!

P.S. And if by chance this is Lora reading, thank you for making such wonderful products. I will always be a customer of yours.

We All Have Parasites!

As some of you may know, I deal with a lot of health issues. And I mean, a lot. I've done everything and anything to figure out what's wrong with me from going gluten free, dairy free, cutting back on sugar, increasing my protein, eating more. You name, I've probably tried it.

I have a long list of symptoms, including but not limited to:
-Joint Pain
-Sensitivity to cold
-Sudden weight loss/inability to gain weight
-Stomach problems
 -Leaky Gut

And so much more...

If you're anything like me and have so many problems but nothing adds up, then maybe you could have parasites.

Now I know what you're thinking: Isn't that only a problem in third world countries? Absolutely not!

How do you get parasties? Simply by touching infected animals, not washing your hands after going to the bathroom, touching surfaces that could be infected, walking barefoot, and so on and so forth.

Yeah, kinda scary, ain't it?

What can parasites do to you? So many things. They can live undetected in your body for years before causing symptoms. They can rob you of vital nutrients which can make you weak. They can even live in your blood. Not fun, folks.

And even if you did go to a doctor to get tested, most would probably turn a blind eye and say it's unlikely. But it's not. It's very common. These buggers can seriously wreak havoc on your body.

So what can you do if you expect you have them?

My suggestion is to buy FOOD GRADE diatomacious earth. It's fossilized remains, and it's mostly composed of silica. It shreds parasite up like no other, and it's harmless to humans and animals. Yay!

I've been using this stuff twice a day for a week now, and I've seen very strange things when going to the bathroom. Sorry about the TMI. My bloating and swelling of my stomach has not been back since using it.

So how much to take? Start off with a teaspoon a day and gradually increase to one tablespoon to two a day. Don't overdo it or you'll cause a toxic overload in your body from the parasite's die off.

But always do your own research folks! I hope you find an answer to your problems. You never know, parasites could be it.

Inspiration Wednesday

So I've decided to go back to my roots and post quotes on Wednesdays again. I just feel like quotes make the world go round, don't you?

Here's my latest favorite quote:

Time is a tree (this life one leaf)
but love is the sky and I am for you
just so long and long enough 
-E.E. Cummings 

Isn't it beautiful?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

My New Year's Resolution

I know that I haven't been keeping up with this blog much, and I keep changing my mind on what I should focus on. But now that a new year is coming up, and my desire to be an author grows every year. I've decided that I need to make huge changes with my life.

First of all, I really need to keep on this blog and on Twitter. You guys are my only hope of my dreams succeeding, so I need to keep promises to you guys.

Second of all, I really need to pick a damn title for this blog and stick with it. Seriously. First I just wanted to write about my journey to becoming a published author. Then I wanted to write about my health journey. Maybe I should just do both.

So that means I'll be making big changes to this blog, and doing my best to keep up with it. I know I've failed at this in the past, but I need to change and I need it now.

Hopefully you'll keep up with me, and we can share our victories as we go along in this world.

Gaining Weight: Eat, Eat, and Eat!

Hello, my fellow bloggers!

As some of you may know, I struggle a lot with gaining weight. But slowly and surely I've gained about 6 pounds over the past few months. Finally!

So what's my secret? Eat. Eat. and Eat. and Eat some more.

I know what you're saying. "But I already eat enough!" or "I can't eat anymore." or "It's just too hard."

Well then you might as well call it quits cause you'll never gain any weight with that attitude.

Trust me, I've been in your spot. I've made all the excuses, including "I think I have food allergies." or "Something is wrong with me."

If your stomach literally hurts throughout the day, aching and gnawing. Ask yourself, "Have I eaten anything?" If you haven't, then eat! That's your stomach tossing and churning it's acid, and it will make you sick. Really sick to your stomach. I've been there, and I won't go back.

I know you're still saying, but I eat so much food. But do you really? I used to think I ate "so" much food, but then I started really watching my food intake. It was way too low. If you are consuming below 2k calories, please freaking eat something!

I know it's hard, but do you want your body to deteriorate because you're starving yourself? It's not good for you. It does awful things for your body. I already have bad joints, and I'm only 19. It's because I starved myself of the nutrients I needed growing up.

If you aren't eating 2k calories a day, you need to start eating more. Stop making excuses for yourself. Do you really want to continue looking like skin and bones? Or do you want muscles and curves? You can't obtain it unless you eat more.

Don't start eating more all at once. Don't risk hurting your body. Slowly add more calories week after week until your stomach can catch up with it.

Trust me, all it takes is eating more. Don't shame yourself for eating a candy bar or even a milkshake. Your body needs something, literally anything to keep it from failing.
