Diet Resource…

I have listed the GAPS Diet program in the links at the top of this blog page, why?  Well, I am finding that this diet thing has been very helpful to myself as well as many others that I know.  I’m sure it is not an idea that you’ve never thought about concerning diet and food restrictions, especially if you have had problems with gluten, but I wanted to share the updated article from Dr. Natasha who has her degree as a Neurologist/Neurosurgeon and in dietary nutrition.  Why I want to share it with you is that you will have a great chance in balancing your hormones if you follow this dietary regime, I’m sure of it.  I have seen great benefits in my own health and I am not getting any financial benefit from promoting this site. I just feel that we as baptized Christians owe it to Our Lord to take better care of our body.  So, it’s worth a try isn’t it?  I pray this information will help you, and if you ever need any support concerning this diet or just a prayer of support, please let us know.  God bless and take good care of YOU!

Friday ~ A Recipe of Comfort

Egg Flower Soup

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 c sliced shiitake mushrooms (about 5)
1/2 red bell pepper
2-3 green onions
1 stalk celery
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 quart chicken broth
1 egg

METHOD:

 Heat the stock in a saucepan.  While it is coming to a boil, slice or chop the vegetables so that they are in small pieces, and set aside.

Add the ginger and toasted sesame oil to the stock.  Once it comes to a boil, add the vegetables and cook until they soften, about 10 minutes.  Once the vegetables have cooked, remove them with a slotted spoon back into a bowl. 

Break the egg into a small bowl and lightly beat it.  Stir the soup with one hand so that it is swirling around in a circle, and slowly pour the egg mixture in with the other hand. The speed with which you stir and pour will determine how thin and long the egg strands become.

Once all the egg is poured in, remove from heat and add the vegetables back in.  Add salt if needed (this will depend on how salty the chicken stock was).

There are many versions of this recipe which mostly vary depending on which vegetables you add. Other additions include peas, chopped onion, meatballs, tomato slices, a little dry white cooking wine, dash of vinegar, and chili oil.

This May Help

So, I find myself thinking of you today as I was browsing through this site called gaps.me.  Many of us have been suffering from chronic illness, PMS, and infertility and somehow if you really think about it with the wisdom that God has given us, our diet maybe the answer to healing the problem.  It won’t be easy as I am doing my best to follow this GAPS diet, and oh it’s not easy, but I know in my heart the Holy Spirit dwells within me and I need to take care of ME.  So, this means I had to share it with YOU.  I pray that you will find this information helpful in leading you to GREAT health, in body, mind and soul.

Female problems


1. Is PMS a sign of digestive issues? Can the GAPS diet help with common infertility issues such as endometriosis and PCOS? Some women report irregularities and loss of menstruation during die-off. Is this cause for any concern?


2. My doctor recommends that I avoid meat and dairy to help endometriosis, because meat and dairy contain oestrogens. What should I do?


3. Should any precautions be taken when choosing feminine care products?


4. Is it realistic for me to think that GAPS could help my body naturally increase its progesterone level?


5. What do you recommend for bacterial vaginosis that came back after an antibiotic cream given to me by my obstetrician / gynaecologist?


6. You state: ‘it is particularly dangerous to use any personal products in the groin’. Does this mean you do not recommend any internal products during menstruation?
