After taking antibiotics, this is what you need to do to restore healthy intestinal flora

This is exactly the article & help I’ve been looking for. I’ve tried many different kinds of probiotics and I eat my veggies but this article has given me better insight on exactly how to restore my gut flora, specifically after my 2+ years on all types of antibiotics!

“My name is Emelie Crecco, I’m 20 years old and I have cystic fibrosis. CF affects the lungs (as of many organs in the body) because of this I have a handicapped sticker. I’m not one to “abuse” the sticker, meaning I use it when I’m having a “bad day” (some days its a little harder to breathe). Today was HOT so I needed to use my sticker. I was running errands all day around my town, I pulled into a handicapped spot, placed the sticker in my mirror and continued into the store. Upon returning to my car I found a note written by someone, it said “Shame on you, you are NOT handicapped. You have taken a space that could have been used by an actually handicapped person. You are a selfish young lady.” I was LIVID. How can someone be so ignorant and cowardly? They clearly saw me walk out of my car, why not approach me? Not all handicaps are visible. I would love for you to share this story. It would help spread awareness for CF, but it would help open people’s minds to what handicapped really is.  Thank you for your time” ~Emelie Crecco

A friend of mine fell over 20 feet and basically broke half his ribs, punctured his lung, broke his arm in three places that required many surgeries to fix and messed up a nerve in his leg. He had to walk with a cane for a long time after it and some lady in a restaurant thought he was just walking with a cane for the hell of it and she ripped it from his hands and grabbed his messed up arm and shook him and told him he was an awful human being for pretending to be handicapped. What the fuck people?

This is what real ableism looks like.

I have ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disorder which causes my body to attack my colon, and I qualify for one of those stickers. I’m scared to get one, though, because I look healthy and whole.-Orange

A mutual friend of mine’s mother has severe fibromyalgia (that gives her a handicapped pass) and as she was walking to her car after buying her groceries, a man actually lunged at her and started yelling at her about her “not looking handicapped”. It left her mother shaking and crying, of course, and it just makes me so angry how awful and ignorant some people can be.

Can I just pin this sentence on every lamppost all over the planet please

I get this all the time with my knee problems if i’m not wearing my supports


I have Chronic Lyme Disease and have a handicap sticker for my own car as well as my mother’s. We get weird looks all the time. And one day I lost and yelled “I HAVE A CHRONIC DISEASE. STOP LOOKING AT ME.” at a woman who looked at me disgustingly. She said a few unmentionable words and flipped me off as she walked away. Oh the joy of the human race…

Vegan Day 4 ✔️

After hearing from a vegan friend just how great and healthy she feels since adopting the lifestyle, I decided I wanted to give it a try. Assuming my kitchen pantry wasn’t prepared and I’d be short of recipes if I didn’t do my research fast, I set a plan for 1 week vegan. I chose vegan for my health, to give my body and digestive system a bit of a break and allow for better healing and detoxification. So far it’s going great. I feel lighter. It doesn’t feel like I have a baby growing inside of me every time i eat. I have suffered absolutely no GI discomfort at all. (⬅️Seems like a miracle!) My future as a vegan holds many possibilities right now… Originally I thought I would practice veganism the first week of every month as a refresher for my body. Now that I’m enjoying it and learning the benefits I’m going to play with it a little and create my own dietary lifestyle. I would like to incorporate fish into my diet, I never had discomfort when eating seafood. I may also introduce eggs into my diet, but I’m going to see first if it bothers me. Adopting the vegan lifestyle is not easy. At the end of the week i will only incorporate meat into one meal per day, if that. Remaining dairy-free is important because it’s already something I’ve been instructed to do but just had a hard time with. I have also not given up honey or bee pollen- manukau honey and bee pollen are 2 things I use as supplements to benefit my health In ways that I really need. I may not be a true vegan but having a taste of this lifestyle is teaching me a lot and I will be able to develop eating habits that best accommodate and further improve my health.

Also want to say I am sorry for your health battles, I too have my own and it has enlightened me to be open to "Doctering Myself." I want to encourage you with Natural News. If you go to the website and look for the series of articles thats titles 15 days of healing. It talks about what asthma is caused from ( obviously the most simple thing). And how easy it is to cure, I saw in your bio, your symptoms. And these articles among many on the site can help you. Hope this helps <3

ly2mela Answer:

Thank you. I actually receive daily e-mails from Natural News, their articles are really helpful. I have saved a lot of information from them about supplements and vitamins, etc. 

sm22707 asked:

I have recently discovered The Gerson Therapy and searched it more online and have come to your page. I am grateful to find other people with this knowledge as most of us are brainwashed and lost. Thank you for sharing your Gerson post, and I look forwards to connecting with you ; ]
