You Are The Captain

June 2016


I often think of my body as a ship. I have many parts to my vessel. In addition, there are many crew members who support the smooth sailing of it. Some of my crew include family, friends, doctors, coaches, staff where I work out and shop, teachers, and my spiritual team. They aid and guide me. Yet, the final decision of how and where to steer my boat is up to me for I make the final decision of how and what course I take. One example of this critical point is how I responded to an allergist that I recently consulted with about my current skin issue. He thought it was contact dermatitis that had nothing to do with what I ate and wanted to put me on steroids. Steroids would treat the rash and not the root cause of my imbalance. Unlike before, I did not take them. Instead, I used my intuition and belief that the food I was eating was a major factor in the inflammation in my body that resulted in the choppy water rash. So I ordered a comprehensive blood sensitivity test.  Although I pride myself on being aware of how the food I eat impacts my body and health, I was surprised by the results.  My body was sensitive to many of the foods I was eating. Instead of taking steroids, I removed the reactive foods from my diet. In addition, we changed to solar salt for our water softer because it has no additives. I also discovered that raw African shea butter calms and removes the itch.  My rash is improving because of these things and that I remembered that I was the captain of my body.  Just like me, you that you are the captain of your body and I encourage you to follow your intuition and believes even if it is different from some of your crew.


Until next time, love, light and laughter,
