Things are a little full around here at the moment, so not much time to blog or do anything else for that matter. But I did want to share something I watched last year that I found very inspiring.
Dr Terry Wahls was diagnosed with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which is said to have no cure. She became wheelchair bound but began to study nutritional therapy and successfully cured herself of MS.
Watch this inspirational TED talk (about 18m) to see how she did it – and yes, she ate a lot of vegetables. Here’s the same talk in 2 different places, in case you have trouble getting it to work in either:
On the subject of vegetables, here’s something that I came across some years ago on how some fruits and vegetables resemble parts of the body that they bring benefit to. You will love this.

Maybe you can think of some others. Here’s a couple I came up with not mentioned in the clip above:
Ginger – resembles the stomach and digestive tract. We know that is helps settle nausea and soothe inflammation in digestion.
Kiwifruit – I think when cut, it looks like the heart and capillaries going out from the centre. Kiwifruit are a good source of Vitamin C, which we know is key to heart health.
Banana – I found this one mentioned online: eating a banana will put a smile on your face. It contains tryptophan which converts in digestion into a neurotransmitter called serotonin, the mood regulating chemical in the brain. Brilliant.
I love how God’s fingerprints are evident in his created world. He is the ultimate Mastermind. I also love how I don’t have to think so hard to remember what fruit or vegetable adds what benefit to which part of my body – it is literally right in front of my eyes.
That same scripture from a recent post comes to mind again:
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. – Romans 1:20
