I personally know how difficult it is to be a Christian and come face-to-face with Paleo eating, so it was so refreshing for me to read this guest blog post from Alicia Wood a certified Holistic Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Much food for thought here on how to eat for health and well-being.
I was reading Chris Kressler’s newsletter the other day and he spoke of how he believes in Ancestral Nutrition and the Paleo Diet. That got me to thinking; I also believe in Ancestral Nutrition but from a very different perspective than he, from a Christian perspective.
The Paleo argument is that we evolved, started as meat eaters, then gradually developed agriculture, that agriculture is “modern” but we should be “primitive” and not eat grains. The Paleo Diet eschews grains. Chris Kressler says he feels better if he eats no grains.
Now, first of all, if you feel better when you eat no grains, then, by all means, eat no grains. I believe we are all bio-individual and if someone feels worse from eating grains, better when they don’t, then they should obey their body’s wisdom.

If you’ve read the My Story page for this blog, you will know that I started this blog based on God teaching me and leading me in treating myself with love and respect. Writing has been a journey of discovery for me but the focus has always been on me, I don’t think that there is anything wrong with this per se but over the last few weeks I have been surprised by the number of people who have found my blog because they searched for the illness that I have been diagnosed with. People searching for Cramp Fasciculation syndrome and associated words have been directed to my blog 52 times and my post on CFS has been read 85 times. I know how debilitating this illness is and I’m not surprised that sufferers look high and low for how to manage and treat the array of symptoms that they present with.
Over the weekend and particularly yesterday, I felt that God wanted (wants) me to actively reach out to these people so I have decided to start writing about what God has been teaching me regarding natural health. I’m not saying that I’m an authority on natural health or healing but, I have had a lot of practice with dealing with my own condition and I am still learning every single day. So if you’re interested in finding more about natural healing and what God has been and is teaching me please look out for these posts.
I am actually about to start an 8 week cleanse (body, soul and spirit) in preparation for Passover which I have dubbed the Passover cleanse. I will write a bit more about this in a separate post later on in the week and will also document my journey each week step-by-step so if you wish to we can go along in this journey together.
Please do not think that all I will be doing is blogging about NH, I still see this blog as a way of learning to grow myself, so you will find a mish-mash of my highs and lows, meditations and revelations on life and the Bible here too.
Blessings and much love in Messiah Yeshua
