This Is How Crazy I Am

Hi. I thought that today I would tell you guys how crazy I am.


I think that I can stop my arthritis through natural foods and herbs…


I take shots of wheat grass juice at the smoothie shop by my grocery store. I use guacamole as salad dressing. I juice a lot of vegetables and fruits. Fennel, romaine, spinach, onions, cabbage, garlic, granny smith apples, ginger, lemons, and beets.  I brush my skin with a skin brush before every shower to keep my pores open and excreting toxins. I drink dandelion tea…


One time I juiced dandelion leaves and it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted.  It was like drinking liquid grass clippings. I add flax seeds to everything. When I’m crying  in pain from arthritis, I don’t take advil because it rips up your intestinal lining. Instead, I take digestive enzymes.


I stretch and exercise every day. Which I don’t think is that crazy, yet some people still refuse to do it. I don’t drink coffee. I use vegetable glycerin to sweeten my yogurt and add sunflower seeds to it because I eat the plain kind. No sugar added.  Low fat. But, I would eat the whole fat yogurt if they sold it at the store.


I eat avocados plain, with a spoon.


I won’t drink milk. Even for money. I don’t eat ice cream. I haven’t had ice cream in months. Actually, that’s a lie. I had some last month because we had chocolate goat’s milk ice cream and I wanted to see what chocolate goat’s milk ice cream tasted like.


It was really hard to take that picture and not eat it. It was even harder to throw it away after. Then I reminded myself what it tasted like and threw the whole carton away. I drink hot lemon water. As much as I can. I take baths with grated ginger, Epsom salts, and lavender oil. Once I took a bath with 2 cups apple cider vinegar in it. I smelled like vinegar for hours.


I drink peppermint tea and tea from the bark of a South American tree that has anti-fungal properties. I use organic sesame oil as lotion. I look at my poop in the toilet to see how well my digestive system is working. I bet you’re glad I didn’t post a picture of that. I have a pill box. You know, one of those things that keeps them organized by week. Except mine keeps them organized by day. Morning, noon, evening, bed.


I do all these things because I have hope that one day people will discover that arthritis is caused by America’s great eating disorder. And I do it because I hope that I will have a life without arthritis one day. I may be crazy but thats what I hope for. And right now I think that being on only 6 milligrams of prednisone with a little bit of wrist pain is just fine with me.
