For me,in terms of strength and motivation,it’s that I have no other decision! Candida has been a health wake up call for me,even though I was “healthy” before,being vegan and then raw vegan.But I have no other option,no other decision.We are blessed to be alive,and we have to take care of ourselves,be educated,informed and know that we are making the best decisions for ourselves.I recall reading on some website about a person who had Candida who didn’t change their diet for 10 years! And all the complaints about health while the person knew fully that it was the diet that it was causing so much suffering and issues! I refuse to do that,I refuse to ignorant,I have to take care of myself,I’m determined and loving and aware,we MUST be! We must love and care for ourselves and our bodies and health so much.
I don’t complain about the diet.Last night I made dinner for my family,made a delicious strawberry and carob drink,hummus with sesame oil and mushrooms that right now I am not able to ingest,but so what? All that I am able to feed and nourish myself with I am so grateful for,and I find it derogatory and wasteful to complain about food when millions have no choice in what they eat and the amount they eat.I bless and thank each meal I have.I put LOVE into my food and I know it’s matter of diligence and patience in the long run.
Blessings and Namaste
