A Better Bread Option for Better Health and Less Inflammation

White flour is a HUGE culprit for triggering inflammation in the body. If you struggle with arthritis or any inflammatory issue, white flour is the first thing that should be thrown out of your diet. Even if you do not have any condition that is inflammatory, white flour STILL will trigger an inflammatory response in the body.

A better option can be Ezekiel Bread, made of sprouts instead of processed flour of any kind. Since there is nothing that preserves the bread it has to be kept in the freezer. Just take out what you need, toast it, and put on some almond butter, vegan butter, or create a sandwich after it has thawed.

Just a heads up here. It won’t taste like processed bread! That’s because there is no added processed sugars to create a sugar imbalance in your body. Yes, it will taste different. After using it you will adjust to not having sugar in your bread!

If bread is supposed to be the staff of life, why put processed ingredients in it that will cause adverse issues in your body? Let your bread accentuate your life and not take away from it!

I enjoy my life. I have the things I desire but when I can, I eat the things that will be more beneficial to me!

What Dealing With Covid Has Taught Me

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com

As I look back upon my life, I can not remember an illness as frustrating as COVID-19. I come from a generation who endured the mumps, measles, chickenpox and missed the old smallpox epidemic. The diseases of the past were irritating, except for some of the more life-threatening diseases.

I feel very blessed to have gone through a lot less than many people have endured regarding the illness department. I am so aware of those I cared for in the past who struggled with cancer forms or were dying from liver failure. When I reflect on those days of taking care of critically sick people, I feel doubly blessed not to have had endured them.

In my belief system, I feel everything in life is brought into our lives to teach us. My beliefs go beyond the old, “whatever does not kill us makes us stronger” mentality. To some degree, everything in life is a lesson, including becoming sick.

Before I continue to go off into left field, I want to stay true to my title and express what COVID-19 has taught me as an illness.

  1. The little things in life are just as important as the more significant issues, whether blessings or difficulties.
  2. Life is too short to complain about anything. We have chosen this ride on earth and can create in this life whatever we desire. If we are not happy with where we are, it is our fault. We can make life be as we envision we want it to be, so why not?
  3. Love is always higher than anything, and it is our love that determines how much we have in our lives.
  4. What we allow to stay will stay. If something is irritating, like a scratchy sweater, it is up to us to take it off and let it go.
  5. Breath is important. No one should ever take a good breath of air for granted. If you smoke, STOP! You WILL get lung cancer or compromise your breath.
  6. Don’t stress over the little things in life; they will pass just like everything else.
  7. It is alright to stay in your jammies if you don’t feel well!
  8. Leaving dishes in the sink is not a mortal sin. They will still be there later on when there is more energy to do them.
  9. People in our lives have a particular purpose; they are not just placeholders. Find the purpose for every person and do your best to learn from that connection, love despite disagreement, and know you are blessed to have the honor of understanding them.
  10. Difficult people are not only learning opportunities but are hurting human beings. Give them a break, especially when they are sick with COVID-19.

Aside from the evident appreciation for life, the comments mentioned above are not exhaustive in the least. When it comes to counting my blessings, I have far more than the stars, and they are uncountable. A little giving goes a long way. We all have things in life we have to process internally. We carry baggage. Some of us carry it over our shoulders, some in our hearts, and some are consumed in baggage without even awareness it exists. Burdens are not meant to be held but processed.

If you are dealing with COVID-19 illness, my heart and prayers go out to you; it is not a fun illness. Let God give you strength for the journey and a more healed heart for having been tried in the COVID-19 fire.

Want Some Stress Ease? Medicinal Tea with CINNAMON! (Repost correction)

*** This is not meant to be in place of medical advice. Please seek advice before trying herbals and any interactions with your medications. I am not affiliated with this brand nor do I receive funds for any promotions.

Skullcap is known to be beneficial for

  1. insomnia
  2. anxiety
  3. tension
  4. inflammation
  5. spasms

Personally, I love medicinal teas! There is nothing more comforting to me when it’s cold outside, I need a boost, or to relax. Cinnamon has its own medicinal properties but taste is my big thing when it comes down to it. Maybe it is the aromatic properties of cinnamon that really kicks this tea into high gear for me!

As with anything herbal, check for any interactions with medications. Otherwise, enjoy! If you are not sure, try a little at a time. Herbals are not for everyone but my experience is plant based health has great benefits!

Valerian Root: Nature’s Anti-Anxiety Herb

Natural remedies are becoming increasingly popular as many move further from pharmaceutical drugs for relief. This has spawned interest in herbal remedies for many emotional and even physical problems.

One natural remedy for anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and to relax, has been valerian root. One of the more common ways to ingest this herb is through using it in tea, usually infused with other herbs. Some take it in capsule form but sipping tea sounds so much more appealing than just swallowing a large capsule of ground up root.

The only drawback, among some other things, is the smell! I feel like it smells like stinky feet. I know this does not make it very appealing, but it is the only way to describe it. Mixed in a tea with lemon balm or other herbs like chamomile can help curb the taste.

The therapeutic benefits are amazing. Valarian is very relaxing and will induce very restful sleep. For the most part, Valarian is very safe, but there are side effects. It can cause a groggy feeling the next day, headaches, sometimes insomnia in some people, and restlessness. The key is to make sure it is not mixed with other anti-anxiety drugs or anti-depressants, as the herb might magnify the drugs’ effects. Also, start with small amounts like a tea infusion and sip it to see how you feel. For many, it is a lifesaver!

Addiction is an Illness and Should Be Treated in Rehabilitation Centers Not Prisons-READ THIS!

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

The first thing I want to say is addiction does not mean only drug addiction. Addiction has a broad scope of things that people can be addicted to. These can include alcohol, sex, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, love/relationship addiction, cigarettes, food, control, you name it. If there is a substance or action repeated continually to press down emotional and mental issues, it can be an addiction.

Addiction is an illness, not a crime. We can’t divide the substances or actions mentioned above and only lump some into crimes and others not. Our country went through the prohibition years, where alcohol was suddenly illegal. Can you imagine suddenly tons of alcoholics going through withdrawal without help? Can you imagine how many alcoholics went to jail because they had to sneak to drink or create their own? They had to do so or go through horrible withdrawal symptoms.

Food can be an addiction for many people. Some don’t even know they are addicted to food or can’t admit it. Can you imagine if people were ushered into state prisons because they could not stop eating? Or could you imagine a food addict forced to sell food on the streets to keep themselves from going through withdrawal? I know it sounds silly. It’s just as foolish with any substance. What if suddenly cigarettes were banned? They do cause cancer. I should know. My father died from lung cancer in his late 50’s. Way too early for someone to die. If a sudden ban on cigarettes happened, millions of people would be forced into either sudden withdrawal, rehabilitation, or jail.

Where do we draw the line, and when we bring in compassion? Can you imagine a food addict being taunted by society because Hostess cupcakes were being sold on the street corners? A sugar high is just as powerful as a drug high. It all triggers the same centers of the brain than any other substance or action that a person is addicted to.

When Coca-Cola first came out, it contained cocaine. Everyone loved Coke! Cocaine was legal. The father of psychology, Sigmund Freud, used cocaine himself. Then cocaine became illegal, and Coca-Cola inserted caffeine. Caffeine is a drug. Millions of people are addicted to caffeine, either in Coke or coffee. I should know. I had to stop drinking caffeine in my coffee and went through withdrawals twice! Was I an addict? Yes! Millions of people are addicted. That means they are addicts. I still drink coffee without caffeine because the act of having a cup of coffee in the morning is an addictive habit.

How are these things different from any other addiction? My point here is addictions must be treated humanely with mandatory rehabilitation and not mandatory prison sentences. Allowing a methamphetamine addict to go to jail and detox cold turkey is dangerous! That is why rehab centers give drugs to help the withdrawal symptoms. Allowing an alcoholic to go cold turkey withdrawal can also cause seizures and many other harmful effects. Cutting off someone’s prescription drug they are dependent on can cause sudden danger or death in some cases.

Am I splitting hairs here? I don’t think so. Go back to my first statements about addiction. It is an illness. Some people are dependent on drugs that help them survive. I am one of them. Without one particular drug, I can not survive. It helps level out the field in my body. I should know. I was forced to live a year without it, and it is was the worst dysfunctional year I have ever had.

Without some anti-depressants, some would not live. Depression can kill. I know this for a fact. Many depressed people die from stroke or suicide because they are never treated. People who are addicted to relationships suffer under the hands of abusive partners—some die. Many die in the United States DAILY.

This is my huge point here. Drug addicted people often do not know to do the right thing for their lives. The drug causes them to have dysfunctional thinking. To say they should know better, put them in prison, and let them suffer the consequences is the same as taking a cigarette smoker and throwing them suddenly in prison under the same principle. The exact same centers of the brain are affected, and the exact same lack of rational thinking occurs in either addiction.

I am not an advocate of crime. This is not the point here. I am an advocate for life. I hate seeing people die unnecessarily. I hate to see people misinformed, making wrong judgment calls because of an addiction or suffering because they believe no one cares, and no one will help them.

Where is our education on these issues, and where is our compassion? Why are we sending non violent drug offenders to prison and not creating MANDITORY drug rehab centers instead? Don’t give an addict a choice. They can not choose because their judgement is flawed. Give them LIFE instead!

***”In addition, the Prohibition era encouraged the rise of criminal activity associated with bootlegging. The most notorious example was the Chicago gangster Al Capone, who earned a staggering $60 million annually from bootleg operations and speakeasies. Such illegal operations fueled a corresponding rise in gang violence, including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago in 1929, in which several men dressed as policemen (and believed to be have associated with Capone) shot and killed a group of men in an enemy gang.” (History.com, 2020)

Knowing When to Heal Internally

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on Pexels.com

I’ve often discussed we are like transmitters that send out information over the spiritual airwaves. In the same respect, we are also like mirrors who show others a good look at themselves when they look at us. We can shine back at someone and show their light or respond when they lash out and show them their wounds. We come together for this purpose. Couples mirror one another often. When one does or says something mean to the other, their injury is imposing on the other.

Most of the time, the unhealed are tempted to take someone’s lashing out personally. It can be, but honestly, it is not. People always spill out their wounds onto others. Or they will help us process our own when we choose to react instead of search our hearts to find where we need to heal. An individual can always know when they heal internal wounds when nothing seems to affect them much anymore. Don’t mistake this for the hardness of heart. It is more like a coming of age from the inside out. It is a transformation that reveals we have grown, healed, and are happy within ourselves.

When growth is being tempted during these moments, remember we have the roots of unholy messes all bottled up inside of us. Many of us don’t even realize it because we are too busy blaming someone else. Life begs us to take a good look at ourselves. It is our responsibility to heal from the inside out and is for our own sake.

Realize we all have “stuff.” There are no exceptions. If you spend less time trying to judge others, feeling hurt by others,  and getting angry, you will have time to settle into yourself and discover where you need to heal. Bringing out those issues can come either willingly, or God will send a messenger that you attract to help do that for you! You can choose either one way or the other.

If you want good relationships, start one with yourself. Learn to love yourself enough to heal. Learn to accept you have flaws like everyone else and work on your wounds. You will know you have completed the work to heal when people don’t seem to rub you the wrong way any longer.  When your injuries no longer affect you, your responses will no longer bring you anxiety or anger. You will finally have come to yourself and stepped into your power!

The Damage and Healing of Sexual Assault

 

“Statistically, every 2 minutes an American is sexually assaulted” RAINN.org  .

Sexual assault and sexual brutality is not exactly a subject I have looked forward to writing about, but it is necessary for a lot of reasons. One reason is that I am “clergy”, and I do have a responsibility toward the care of people, and in my case, especially women. Although sexual assault and battery don’t only happen to women, I am going to mostly address women in this article. God gave me a mandate and a heart to look out for the welfare of women who have not always been treated very fairly when it comes to the subject of sexual matters and many other things. I need to address this subject because of the women I have listened to over the years who have shared their stories of rape, sexual brutality, and humiliation. Last, but not least, I am also a victim of sexual assault/brutality.

I swallow hard on that last sentence.

Before I continue on, let me give you an example of a rape of a woman that occurred in Biblical times.

In the Bible ,2 Samuel Chapter 13 , the story is told of a woman named Tamar who was raped by her half brother Amnon. As the story goes, Amnon plotted to get Tamar into his house by posing as being sick. He asked his father, king David, to send Tamar to come and cook some food for him to get well. David granted his request. When Tamar arrived she cooked food in front of Amnon, and he asked that the food be brought to him in his bedroom. Not feeling she had any reason to be concerned she did as he requested. So there is where we find her; in his bedroom. This man is her half brother. Their father asked she do this favor for him because her half brother was ill. She takes food for her half brother into  his bedroom, but instead of eating the food she brought, he raped her. Tamar had begged and pleaded with him to not bring that shame upon her, but he did not listen. His lust and desire for control of what he wanted was stronger than what he thought was love for her.

And what was the aftermath?

When the dirty deed was done Amnon immediately began to hate her and asked she be thrown out. Suddenly Tamar was the vision of his own sinfulness and he could no longer look at her. I’m sure her shame was deeply imbedded inside of her at that very moment. The Bible says that Tamar was wearing a white robe, which she tore from her body in shame outside of Amnon’s door. Tamar had been a virgin and a violent act was her very first sexual experience. The man who raped her took her virginity, her sense of purity, and defiled her future. Back in her day a raped woman was a defiled woman and now no man would want to marry her. Just for a moment consider the ramifications of the whole thing. What about the future she could have had with a husband, children, and a home? Those things were taken from her in one instant. Can you imagine going from the prestige of being the daughter of a king to an outcast in society in just one twist of fate?

Tamar’s story is not unlike many women’s stories regarding rape and sexual assault. Quite often a woman is raped and attacked by someone she knows and has earned her trust. I understand Tamar’s sickened frustration. I know her bitter tears she had to have cried and I totally get the shameful feeling that followed.

Pouring out my personal experience.

Let me switch gears here for a moment and tell you one of the things that had happened to me personally. I had been actively dating after having gone through a difficult divorce. I met some men who I liked a lot and some I did not. None of them were like this man though. He was very handsome; tall, had a great smile, a quiet demeanor, and a very witty side to him. We had a wonderful dinner out together and just laughed and got to know each other. He was really quite romantic as he walked me to my car in the restaurant parking lot. I was very careful to only meet him there and not immediately just invite him to my home. I felt so progressively wise in the boundaries I created. We dated a few times at least once a week and in between seeing one another he showered me with text messages, romantic emails, and late night phone calls. After having gone through a difficult marital break up where my husband had cheated on me for 8 full years of our marriage, the attention was really well received. I needed to know I was a woman worth courting and worthy of a good man’s love.

Needless to say, he gained my trust. So when he invited me to his home to fix dinner for me, I really did not hesitate. His home was really quite lovely , very large, and the dinner he made me was wonderful. It was accompanied by wine, nice music, prayers, and a lot of smiles. I thought, “Wow, am I dreaming here? Someone pinch me because I must be sleepwalking”. As our relationship progressed, we began to have prayer together, light candles, have communion, and talk about God, world events, and relationships. He truly gained my trust. Then one night after communion things changed very suddenly. I found myself pressed onto his bed folded into positions I can’t describe openly in words as he forcefully and brutally had his way with me. I know I screamed very loudly. His home was so large I am not sure anyone could have heard me. At least it did not seem that way. I was absolutely petrified. After it was over I stopped my screaming and he just looked at me in the eyes still pressing me down. I will never forget that look. I know it was the look of hatred that Amnon had for Tamar after he raped her. All I wanted was to get out of his house and go climb into my own bed. He scared me a great deal, so I smiled at him, looked very calm, and gathered my things and walked out. I certainly did not want to cause any more aggression. I prayed so hard as I walked back out of his house. I cried so hard during the drive all the way home. Then I climbed into my bed thinking that I never wanted to ever get out of it again.

The next day was horrible. I hurt in places I never knew I had, but there was no physical pain that could even top the soul pain I was feeling. This was a man I prayed with. This was a man who looked so sincere and I never discerned any tendency toward violence. He hid it so well and that scared the tar out of me. I took the clothes I was wearing that night and threw them away. My “garment” was no longer a white robe to me.

Over the next few days, I went over and over it in my head. I felt it was my fault; that I opened myself up to being attacked by trusting too easily. I thought to myself,  I should have never had real wine with communion. What was I thinking? I thought about how disillusioned I began to feel. Is it that I never deserved to have a wonderfully amazing man in my life who would truly love me the way I thought I was going to be loved? And by the way, where was God during this whole ordeal? I pondered the idea that not only was I  his daughter, but also His minister! I have to tell you, I sure did not feel like a very good minister at that very moment and it took me a long, long, time to even begin to feel like I was worthy to serve God again. I fought with the questions in my head about how He could let this happen to me and how He truly felt about me now that it has.

I sat for hours in God’s presence and began to read accounts in His word about how He felt when His children are mistreated by evil people in this world. I came across some real graphic anger in God’s holy heart. I found phrases and sentences that described Him so angry that He was like a snorting bull. I got the image of Him ready to charge at any moment at my aggressor! I read accounts of people going after His chosen wanting to kill them and He roared like thunder in His distaste and indignation. When I began to realize how ticked off my Father was as He saw me endure a vicious attack,  true  healing for me began. In God’s presence I learned that we all have free will and sometimes we are the victims of other peoples free will choices. We never deserved it, but they chose to make us a part of it. God gave people free will. It is our choice as to how to use it. We can use it for good or for evil. This is not to say He does not intervene because I know He does. Maybe I am still alive because His spirit was present and brought a sense of calm? I really don’t know, but I am very thankful.

My path to recovery has not always been an easy one. Along with it comes responsibility. I don’t even know if I want to go into details about having to get blood tests, being tested for HIV, and other possible diseases this man could have given to me. It was all a part of the shame I had to endure while trying to process my insecure feelings that I was the one at fault. I did the responsible thing for my physical welfare though. I had to. I’m very glad God gave me the strength to get tested because I now know I am fine in that area. I had a lot of things happen to me like flashbacks of the brutality. Sometimes I would lay awake at night and reenact how I could have made things turn out better. Unfortunately I suffered some physical injuries that I now live with but I’ve been able to deal with it. My faith, the love of others, the hope God gives to me for a good future, are all the things that have helped me to keep on healing.

Only for a period of time did I think the experience rendered me  not even worthy of love or even respect from my peers. I only went through a small season of wondering if the church community would ever accept me or respect me if they had known. Like Tamar, for awhile I felt my life and future was over, but God intervened in those thoughts and feelings. He continued to show me the white robe that was given to me when Jesus died and laid down His life for me. Jesus is “all knowing” and He certainly knew what He was getting when He called me to serve Him. When I was ordained in 1995, Jesus knew I would suffer shame, make mistakes, be a victim of others bad choices, and go through seasons of disillusioned painful questions. He took my torn garments and He replaced them over and over with His white robe covering. I can’t completely describe how being in His presence changes everything. Its a mystery to me how He manages to come through to those who truly look and listen for Him. In all honestly, I don’t care how He does it. I’m only grateful that He does. I’m thankful for His undying love, respect for my life, and for the people He has sent to me along the way who have made the journey always worth it. I could never repay Him for all He has done for me. The beauty of it all is that He already paid for it, so that is nothing He would ever ask of me. He has shown me that the assault was not my fault through His whispers of wisdom in our time spent together.

As I write this my eyes are filled with tears. Until now, no one has ever really heard about this part of my struggle. My tears now are not real painful ones, but they are tears of gratitude with great love and respect for a God who will never let me out of His grasp. So how do we turn in these ashes for His beauty? I tell this story, and I tell it to every woman who needs to hear it. I also listen to her heart, her experiences, and her fearful questioning. I can allow her to bleed out the painful wound created by an experience she never deserved to have to live with. I can point her to the One, and the only One, who knows her so completely and can heal her with a love more powerful than any rape or assault.

I’m not real sure what happened emotionally for the Biblical Tamar after the experience she had. I don’t know if she ever recovered or if she found God’s healing. I am sure that if she had turned to God, He was there for her like He has been for me. She would have healed others because she found His grace to be more powerful than the shame she had felt.

My message for you.

If you have been the victim of sexual assault and brutality, I want to take a moment and express to you how sorry I am you had to experience it. I know the soul scar is very hard to heal. God created the sexual encounter to be a very sacred one. When the sacred is defiled a void is created that can not even be explained in words. My hope for you is healing and wholeness. My dream for you is to become stronger and more compassionate instead of bitter. My prayer for you is to find your Savior, Jesus, in ways you have never experienced Him before. May you live in His presence today, always, and forever. Amen.

With Love (and a lot of guts),

Habits that Heal

Come visit my website! Dr. Jenine Marie

Have you become sloppy in your good habits lately? No doubt, during these difficult times, many of us have deviated from our usual healthy routines. We have been all about comfort, and we should be. Yet, many have also ran to the habits that have comforted more than healed—things like eating junk food, watching stuff on the computer or TV for more time than usual. We might have even substituted many of our good habits for bad ones with good intentions.

Good intentions are great, but without executing a good plan, they are not so good. Maybe now is the time to get back to good habits. Things like eating the best foods for your system, going for walks, or enjoying fresh fall air can be useful for the body and soul. Simple acts of kindness can be a habit that heals the soul. We all need healing habits. We also need to remember them. They bring us comfort and consistency. Our healing habits are like a warm blanket of security that gives us strength more than drain it from us.

It’s a great time to explore new habits. Write some things down on paper and create a plan to do them daily. Don’t forget to pen in the self-care. Take long baths in Epsom salts, read for pleasure, or make a grocery list that has comfort foods that heal the body instead of filling the hurting spaces. Right foods can’t heal a broken heart, but they can keep us healthy while we do recover.

Get back to a good prayer and meditation life. Choose your weapons wisely, and be careful what comes out of your mouth. We all need these reminders. Get plenty of sleep. Being a night owl is alright sometimes, but our bodies regenerate during sleep. Being healthy when the winter season comes will depend upon what we are doing now. Being fit for a lifetime will depend on doing the right things continually every day.

Only you know what is right for you, but some things are pretty easy to pinpoint. Some of the items above are a good start and a reminder for you. It’s time to get back to the essential good habits that heal the body, mind, and soul!

Soul Scars and How to Deal With Them

Photo by RF._.studio on Pexels.com

Our bodies are amazing creations. God sure knew what He was doing when He created us! We are so equipped to handle the most difficult situations. When our physical bodies are wounded, everything in our bodies will go to the rescue like a knight in shining armor. Blood and cells rush to the scene of any wound and will clot the area to keep us from bleeding out. Later a scar forms over the wound. The greater the wound the deeper and thicker the scar.

Our soul goes through the same type of situation when we are hurt or emotionally wounded. Only we are the ones who go to the rescue and cover the wound with our smiles, coverings, and dealing with every day life. Unfortunately we leave the wound and scar inside of us. This effects us every day of our lives. Our emotional wounds will even affect our energy centers, physical capabilities, physical health, and block us spiritually. Do you see how important it is to deal with our wounds? Time to get real and truthful with ourselves so we can heal. This way we stop the lack in our lives from the wound and we stop spilling out over others because of it.

Inner wounds also keep us from growing up inside. It does not matter what age we are, we act immature when the scars are there and not dealt with. The Light of God can illuminate our wounds through revelation when we seek to find out what they are and ask how we can deal with them. Only exposure can open up the scar, release the wound and allow us to heal, grow, and move on to more productive lives. Here is a video explaining some of the process. There are many ways we can deal with soul scars but going to God is a great start in the process! Enjoy and be well!

If you need someone, please don’t hesitate to ask for either a session with me or you can ask for ministry. Call 832-484-8306. I would be happy to help you deal with those inner wounds that hold you back from living your best life ever!

Blessings and loving you from here,
