The importance of certain lifestyle factors.

I would just like to point out a few things that I have learned recently. There are many reasons why I’ve probably felt mentally awful in my life. I’ve completely changed my lifestyle recently and I feel a bit better. I would like to point out the importance of drinking water. I don’t want to sound like I am nagging because I know that other people are always banging on about it. I have proven that it really does work wonders for your health. I had the worse migraine for two days. I got so fed up last night that I kept drinking water and went to bed. I woke up this morning feeling drastically better. I still have an ache there but it’s not severe like it was previously. I have better hair and my skin feels different. I have an issue with flakey dry skin on my face and really hard skin on the bottom of my feet (maybe my feet issue is related to walking a lot). I had none of that when I woke up this morning. I even didn’t have the stomach fluid that I normally have constantly. Water really does heal. I know that it doesn’t have the best taste. We have a lot of fluoride in our water here. That makes it taste even more fowl. I’d recommend bottled water, but some of it is quite over priced. I put tap water in the cat’s water bowls but they don’t like to drink it right away because of the fluoride content in the tap water here (it disperses if you leave it standing). I can’t believe the difference to the feel of my skin. It doesn’t have any dryness to it anymore. I have very thick hair which normally looks dry, but today it is looking longer and sleeker. I have less brittle nails. I actually had more energy than I normally have. This week I’ve been ill so that isn’t a good measure of before and after energy. But, I actually got up and did housework without finding it a strain (which I have for a very long time).

I normally drink soft drinks and tea. I know that they are both not the best drinks for a person. But, I really am weak when it comes to sweet stuff (I would be a size 6 if I cut out all of those sugary snacks that I just cannot resist and not have a stomach podge). Tea is what keeps me going when I’m studying or doing some other kind of work (e.g. writing articles, website promotion, planning my book etc). I do not like coffee because I think it tastes like soil. There are many people who drink coffee that say it is not nice but it keeps them awake to be able to do their work etc. I feel sick at the smell, let alone the taste of coffee. Soft drinks are very bad for your teeth. I was told by my dentist that I had to cut down on the Pepsi that I drink because it is affecting my teeth. I then started oil pulling with coconut oil. That damage on my teeth has nearly reversed and the dentist was unable to believe it when I last went for my check up. There is a lot of press saying that this technique doesn’t work. I do it daily while I’m in the bath (I have a bath every single night because I feel dirty if I don’t). The sugar content of food, therefore, doesn’t have the time to get into the underneath gum parts of your teeth. Coconut oil has healing properties too. This could account for all the damage being reversed. I know that no one 

I know that no one thinks I’m trying to help myself. But I really am. I’ve changed my lifestyle a lot. I haven’t been able to work miracles, but I’m getting there. I don’t think it’s fair that someone should be punished when they’re trying their best to combat their demons. It may not be on other people’s timescale. Recovery doesn’t have a timescale. There are some things that I won’t get over. In time though, they will not affect the person that I am. I made mistakes, but I have already been punished for them. It is now time for people to help me and give me the benefit of the doubt. The current legal roads are something that doesn’t need to be gone down. I made my mistakes because I was unaware of the full facts. I hold my hands up to those mistakes, but I am trying to become a better person. I want to become a better person. It takes a lot of effort and leaving a former life behind. I need to be allowed to move on without charges on my name.
