Healthy yet not so healthy

Okay, it's rant time.

I absolutely hate when people "think" they're being healthy but their diet is not healthy whatsoever. I always hear people say, "It's low-carb, so it must be healthy!" Um, no. It's really not. Sorry to burst your little bubble there, but you need carbs to live! You can't go without carbs.


That's just like the girls in high school who were always like, "Ew, there's too much fat in there!" Really? Do you realize that you need fat to live? Not every fat is created equal. For example, fat from an animal is gross, filled with hormones and no living nutrients, but take an avocado, which is a living food, and it's filled with healthy nutritious fats.


Same goes for carbs. Refined sugar and bleached white wheat are two very disturbing products. I mean, would you even consider bleaching your food before eating it? I mean, you're not even supposed to ingest bleach let alone put it on your food. What crazy person even thought of this, and why do people accept this as the "norm"?


But on the other hand, if you soak some buckwheat or any other grain that's not wheat, you have yourself a healthy grain. Even rice is super healthy as long as it's not stripped of its nutrients like the white kind has been.


I don't understand how society can even think like this. Our bodies need fat to store for energy. Our bodies need carbs to make energy. We need these things to survive. You just have to be careful of what source they're coming from.


Not all carbs are created equal. Neither are protein or fats.


And certainly neither are calories.


Calories is the biggest thing that annoys me.


"I can't eat that. It contains too many calories."


Um, hate to break it to you, but you need calories to survive.


Let's take an example here. I'm going to make up the calories. Let's take a piece of fruit, say a banana, and a brownie. Say the two each equally had 100 calories.


Which is healthier?


Well, the brownie consists of bleached flour, refined sugar, saturated fats, preservatives, and whatever the hell else comes with brownies. Considering the temperature its baked at, there are likely to be zero nutrients left in the food. The wheat, which did have nutrients to begin with, was bleached to death and baked to the point where all living enzymes and nutrients died off. The sugar was super processed to the point all living nutrients were destroyed. And the butter, which in its raw state is chock full of live nutrients, is pasteurized to death so it makes it a bad choice for nutrients.


Take the banana, which has not been cooked or tampered with, and you're loaded with all essential nutrients like potassium and whatnot.


Make sense?


Most cooking destroys all our nutrients in food. This is why processed foods which go through various steps like bleaching, steaming, boiling, and chemical baths, are stripped of all nutrients. You stick your cooked meal in the ground and it rots. Take a living vegetable or fruit and things grow.


This is why I love the idea of raw foods because when you eat a cooked/processed diet, you are unable to fill your bodies need of nutrients because well, there aren't any there.


But if you eat a diet full of vegetables, fruits, seeds, beans, nuts, and grains, you can successfully receive all those nutrients your body needs.


This is why the SAD is filled with disease and problems. Everyone is gourging on food that has no nutrients so instead of fueling the body, it rots inside the body because there's zero purpose of it being there. Okay, I lied. It feeds your body, but only with toxins.


With a raw diet, your body can receive nutrients that supply your body with what its asking for and instead of getting diseases, it fights off diseases.


Now am I telling you to go 100% raw? Absolutely not. Even when I decide to make the change to raw, I will not eat 100% raw because I will listen to my body. I will most likely occasionally cook soups and certain vegetables, but I will not eat a 100% cooked/processed diet.


And besides, vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, and nuts can be grown. If you have a huge garden full of this stuff, you'd save yourself 100 of dollars every month on food that only deteriorates your body.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
