About

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! My name is Debbie. I have a hubby and 2 great kids, a 17yo boy and a 12yo girl. I’m a follower of Jesus. Jesus has fixed a lot of things in my life, but mostly He needed to fix me! 🙂 His mercy is new every morning.

A few years ago I started getting serious about finding solutions to my health problems. I had issues with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, bipolar?, ADD? too many issues to count? And I couldn’t be fixed by any of the brilliant, kind-hearted doctors I went to for help. I was very persistent but unsuccessful.

I had always done a lot of reading about nutrition and tried to follow a healthy diet. It was usually a low fat diet. I was vegetarian at the time, and I also was eating a lot of foods I was sensitive to and I didn’t know it. I guess all of that didn’t agree with me.

Then, about 3 years ago I discovered the Weston A. Price foundation and then the GAPS diet.  The GAPS diet is a serious undertaking, so I read about a lot of other people on their blogs who were doing it and were having success.  I tried it out and found out I absolutely love eating this way!  The food is delicious! I also get a lot of yummy recipes from paleo websites.

3 years later, I feel so much better!!! I just graduated from the Nutritional Therapy Association as an NTP. I want to help others heal their own bodies, and especially brains :).  My focus is on helping relieve stress in the body, and allowing the body to heal itself. I’m loving it!

What about you? What’s your story?

    I’m studying sports medicine but have recently become very interested in holistic nutrition. I’m looking into programs and what schooling I will need for that (once I graduate undergrad!). I’ll have to look into NTA, sounds like it may be a very good program.

      It is really good!

      But not mainstream, so I can’t go “get a job”. I’ll have to be a private contractor.

        I’m not sure I understand why you can’t get a job? Is it because its not like a registered dietician degree?

    The Nutritional Therapy program teaches us how to assess areas of stress in the body, and test supplements to see if they will help. I’ve had some really fun results from my “practice” clients.

    Unfortunately, some of the stuff we’re learning isn’t widely accepted by conventional medicine, sort of like acupuncture ten years ago :).

    So, to answer your question, no, it’s not like being a Registered Dietician. Although some people are both.

    The big industries have taught everyone to eat all wrong and consume a ton of chemically enhanced or created foods. All designed just to make someone money. getting back to eating the way God intended is the best, eating the foods He created. Great blog site Debbie!

      Thanks for stopping by :).

      I agree the money aspect has caused a ton of problems.

    Hey Debbie, This is Joli! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I found your blog a week or so ago and have fallen in love. You have posted some GREAT recipes…and I appreciate your humor. I have pinned some of your recipes to try! I’ve always just done my blog so I can brag shamelessly about my kiddos. I never added a way for people to “subscribe”, but I just did it at your request! Now I have a request for YOU: add a pin button so I can pin your great recipes straight from your blog! Keep up the great work!

      Yay! I’ll go subscribe now 🙂

      I do need to figure out the “pin it” button thing. I tried it a while ago and didn’t have success. I do know that lots of people have pinned the recipes some way. I heard you can put it in your browser? I have a lot to learn about technology!
