Desperation (A Journey Back to Health)

My journey took a desperate turn in the fall of last year, I felt tired, bloated, and ached all over. I couldn’t sleep at night for it would hurt to lie down. I began to pray, “God if you want me to continue to write Bible Studies and make videos, I need your help with my health to have the energy to do so. I wanted to do God’s will, but I needed His help in order to do so. My friends, this is a great place to be and I believe it is exactly where God wanted me to be.

One afternoon I received a text from my friend Tylee inviting me to join her at a Nutrition Response class. I did not know what Nutrition Response was so I asked her what NR was about. Tylee’s explained it to me and said, they may be able to help you feel better. Bingo, my prayer was answered!

I was excited and could hardly wait for the day to attend the class. The Nutrition Response class was informative and fascinating, and Angie the instructor asked if anyone would like to do a quick response testing to see if they could benefit from the nutrition response program. Tylee gave me a nod of reassurance, and I volunteered to have Angie do her quick response test on me. To no surprise my thyroid was not too happy. I always had a gut feeling my thyroid needed help despite the positive results from my basic blood work.

Prior to this class, I had tried doing everything I could prior to this moment by eating organically, drinking filtered water, and giving up gluten but just couldn’t move past the road block. Finally, I felt hopeful that something could be done to feel better again.

That night when I reflected about my day, I gave God praise and thanksgiving for answering my prayer, and for Angie and Tylee answering God’s call to follow through on what God had put on their hearts to do.
