My Rope Worm/Parasite Journey – What Is Crawling In Our Insides

After 2,5 years on a mostly pure fruitarian diet, I still had parasites! 🐍 And tons of them! 😱So when someone mentions 7 days cleanse for healing, it makes me laugh. 😂Those creatures are way tougher than many of us, so better don't start the war you don't plan on winning!😉 I ate mostly nothing but fruits, no greens, no nuts and seeds, no vegetables, no cooked foods, not even a green juice, because of extreme reactions to them, and I did it for so damn long, but despite, I still had one million problems. Occasionally I did eat something cooked as well, but it would get me so sick, that I wouldn't think of it for long 😣 Parasites are real, and just because you wash your hands, it doesn't mean that they're not crawling in your insides! 😱 I looked quite normal on that pic from 2015, right? 🤔 Would...

Why Fruit Diet Is Not Enough In Getting Rid Of Parasites?

What I've realized over the years working with hundreds of clients, is that every single person with a chronic disease suffers from a heavy parasitic load. Parasites are opportunistic creatures, and they are not the direct cause of disease in the first place, but they will inhabit and multiply in bodies with decay, poor oxygenation, congested lymphatic system, low ph levels, and high heavy metals and toxic load. Then they grow in number and spread to different areas of the body, so then their presence becomes a constant source of toxins, which the body is unable to get rid of on its own, despite complete diet change! Parasites, bacterias, yeasts, molds, protozoa, algae, etc will not only steal your nutrition and energy source, but they will excrete their toxic waste (pee and poo) inside of you! So not only that you have to take care to eliminate your own waste, but...

Why You Gained Weight On A Raw Vegan Lifestyle?

For most or people eating a standard diet, deciding to eat only raw foods for a couple of days, would be considered a fast. Miracles are often promised and many people come to this lifestyle with the idea of having a perfect body figure. Yet, the reality is much different. Many people are struggling with weight on a raw vegan diet, and even some people gain extra weight by switching to an unlimited calorie banana plan 🙂 Many people recommend 'to avoid the cravings make sure to eat huge amounts of food', without knowing your particular situation! Well if your body misses certain minerals, the satisfaction won't be met even after eating kilos of foods, just because, the demineralized body still didn't get what it needs! In this case, eating beyond the body's ability to digest can cause sluggishness and fermentation. And every time you feed candida, keep in mind that candida will eat...

Autoimmune Disease – Why Your Body Attacks Itself?

When I realized that I am having an autoimmune disease, it got me thinking, why my body would hate me so much? When you start thinking of it, it becomes depressive. Especially cause my first try was using immune herbs and then I found out that 'they are not recommended cause boosting immunity, in this case, would mean destroying yourself at even higher speed! But why would your divine body, which is capable of imagining and creating all this technology, and being true divine love, would do that? Is your body really hating you? No, the idea that the body wants to destroy itself is very badly interpreted. Your body loves you more than anything and it always wants to go back to homeostasis, no matter how bad we treat it with unhealthy foods and a destructive lifestyle.  What happens is that your lymphatic system, which is big-time overlapping with your immune system,...

Why Starvation Is Counterproductive to Weight Loss?

We all tried those crazy diets, that promise rapid and extreme weight loss, but how many of them gave you long-term effects? Probably none. And besides creating lots of emotional damage - feeling betrayed and left on the edge by the own self, there are also physical changes that are actually the opposite of what you've wanted. Your body needs a certain amount of calories just to keep you alive and smoothly perform functions like breathing, circulation, digestion, regeneration, etc. and this is called resting metabolic rate - a minimum number of calories required for basic functions at rest.  So roughly for a female, it comes around 1300kcal. Then on top of this, you have to add calories to cover your energy requirements for daily activity, like movement, exercise, and mental work. When you start cutting calories, the body has limited energy and it will start performing the necessary functions poorly, and as...

Aches & Pains – Why Your Body Hurts So Much?!

I was suffering from chronic pain every single day all day long for 11 years, since the day I had a car crash. 4 hours of surgery, 21 bar on my legs, 5 kg of titanium. Not only that my leg was smashed, skull damaged, but soon after the surgery, I started having different rashes and inflammation. I was mentally strong enough to learn to walk again and get back to normal life, but the pain never went away. Everybody told me, I have to live with it. And all I heard is 'poor kid', 'poor Amanda'... no one ever told me why I have pain all over my whole body, although not every single part of me was broken, and no one told me that I could fix it. Systemic acidosis - this is what it is. I still have crooked bones, and even overlapping bones - where they didn't perform...

How To Reduce Bloating?

You will find similar title all over the internet, must be a struggle of every human these day, eating the SAD crappy diet. But if you've ever been bloated all day long, every single day, you know that the idea to eat ginger or drink chamomile tea sounds ridiculous! Bloating and parasites are my favorite topics. Maybe because since the beginning, my whole obsession was about killing the parasites. In March 2013, 8 years ago, just before becoming a fruitarian,  I even drank Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide drops, as explained in some book I read, to kill the germs and candida that were plaguing me. I almost killed myself, by germs were still there! It was never the parasite, it was about the terrain! When your body starts accumulating uneliminated waste, parasites start taking over, they decompose undigested foods in your digestive system and the byproduct is lots of gas! But gas...

Acidity Is Causing Dehydration

What I am talking about? Shouldn't we drink our 8 glasses of water and have peace of mind that our body is hydrated? Not really! Your cellular hydration does not always depend only on the amount of water you are consuming daily! You can drink liters of water and still feel chronically thirsty. And you can dry fast for a day or more and not feel thirsty at all. Water that we drink is not the best source of hydration. That's because water molecules get distorted due to purification systems and added chemicals. So unless you drink spring water delivered to you fresh and alive in a glass bottle, be sure that the water you drink is only second-hand hydration. The best hydration comes from fruits, because plants absorb mineral-rich water from the soil, and embed it in the fruits and veggies in the perfect structure. But even if you consume the purest form...

Your Thyroid May Be Responsible For Your Weight Gain

First of all, weight gain in most cases is not caused by caloric surplus, but from choosing wrong foods, poor food combinations, food intolerances, parasites, stress, and hormonal imbalance! I was a chubby kid and they teased me by the name 'Bucka', meaning chubby. I developed all kinds of digestive issues from a young age and when got into puberty, with lots of shame and distorted images of the perfect body from magazines, I staved myself and became anorexic. Then over the years binging started and my weight was up and down depending on my willpower, but I was ALWAYS hungry! Name any weight loss diet, I tried it, yet none of them gave any long-term results. I was never too fat, but that 10-15kg extra (which I later found out was mostly water retention) was killing my confidence. Then I went full power on a fruit diet, and in a...

Does Fruit Diet Exaggerate Candida?

You probably heard how fruits are bad because of the sugar content and how they should be eliminated when trying to get rid of candida overgrowth. Or you even got inspired and gave a try to fruit-based diet, but ended up bloated and in pain? I had severe candida, that grossness was growing on each part of me, and the reason I got into all this health stuff 10 years ago, was because I realized that I'm loaded with candida and that my gut problems are responsible for my acne and a long list of symptoms! And just like you, I tried various antifungal drugs, then natural antifungal stuff and I followed the strict anticandida diet with zero fruits and did whole lots of stuff, but very little progress was made and just the smallest slip up was a huge slap on my face! When your guts get congested, and become breathing...

Do Vegans Risk Anemia?

You know, as a meat-eater on keto style diet 9 years ago, I had severe anemia. After long rounds of pills, syrups, and all the struggle with eating large amounts of red meat, the blood test showed no improvement. My doctor asked me 'Do you walk zig-zag on the street?', cause the numbers were scary. Noone asked why would I still have anemia despite supplementing and a diet supposedly rich in iron. Nobody put any effort into making connections and looking for the root cause of this problem.  And when I came with the idea to became a raw vegan fruitarian, I was attacked and laughed that plant-based sources of iron are 'non-heme form which they said is not well absorbed and won't make any difference. And I ate mostly fruits, I got into crazy detox mode, from keto to 100% fruitarian overnight (don’t recommend this), and ate piles of bananas...

Thinness & Inability To Gain Weight

 So, as gaining weight might be so annoying and have consequences for our health, excessive thinness brings its own risks.  If you eat an adequate amount of calories and do proper food combining, few things could explain why you can't gain healthy weight :  1) Parasites - these guys eat your food, so if they take over your system, you have to eat more to feed them as well, but I'd recommend doing a detailed parasite cleansing protocol and establish clean inner terrain instead! 🐍 💦 🍉 🌿  2) Indigestion /malabsorption problems - your body can't break down foods properly, or the nutrients don't get absorbed or utilized properly. This problem is often due to a weak pancreas and liver, but the lymphatic system and glands are involved too. This includes leaky gut, diarrheas, and similar. 🧟‍♂️  3)Hyperactive thyroid gland - your metabolism and heart rate are faster than normal due to the...

Nutrition, Digestion, Absorption, Utilization, And Elimination – 5 Steps To Complete Nutrition!

Everyone knows that our bodies need complete nutrition to thrive.  here are many apps these days where we can track our calories micro and macronutrients. But what that software doesn't know is that some of the compounds interact, or some reactions need specific precursors to be fulfilled. 💫 There is a VERY LONG WAY from eating foods to utilizing nutrition, and because of complexity, we often end up malnourished, despite a proper diet!😵 So, 5 steps have to be fulfilled rightly:  1) NUTRITION - that's your diet - although our body is very smart and can synthesize many stuff, it's better to stay on the safe side and eat a wide spectrum of fruits, greens, vegetables, herbs, sprouts, nuts, and seeds! 🍎 🥗 🌿  2) DIGESTION - that's your digestive system. If you don't break foods to the smallest particles and see pieces of undigested foods in the stool, don't expect any use of it....

Weak Adrenal Glands – How The Person Behaves & Looks

 I will tell you all the characteristics and you tell me if you find yourself here ☺ When adrenal glands stop producing an adequate amount of hormones, our physical and emotional state is being severely altered.  Due to changed body chemistry - our personality changes.  Overthinking, over analyzing, predicting the worst possible scenarios, impatience anxiety, panic attacks, fears, insomnias, nightmares, fatigue, emotional instability, feeling overly sensitive, crying, feeling misunderstood, hopeless.. are just some of the characteristics of your new personality. 🤯 But the fight-or-flight mechanism does not mess with your mind only, your appearance starts telling the story as well.😫 Due to the stress hormones, the body starts gaining weight. Instead of turning foods into energy, the body starts accumulating fat deposits in the middle section of the body, while the legs stay thin. The belly grows forward while 'love handles' on the back can become soft and watery. 😭 Your thighs and knees over...

Rashes, Itching, Pimples, Cysts

Clear skin does not guarantee good health, but skin issues always indicate congested lymphatic systems and poor kidney function. Imagine a baby pees in diapers and no one changes them. In a couple of hours, there will be a rash, maybe even boils. What just happened? Toxic acidic pee has burned and damaged skin cells and created inflammation and rash! So this is exactly what is happening when you have rashes on the skin. Your body is so toxic and your kidneys are not filtering the waste, so that trash, to protect you, is being eliminated through your skin! 😱 Now the skin is burned by acidic waste and it hurts! 🥵Dryness, itchiness, redness, swelling, inflammation, literally all come from the same thing! With pimples and cysts is similar, but a more congested lymphatic system is involved and can be hormonal as well. Which also originates in inner congestion. You want to fix your...

How Stress Is Compromising Your Healing?

We all know that stress is bad, but what exactly stress is doing to your body, and why it is compromising healing?  So let's start with adrenal glands - they are the ones that are controlling all autonomic nervous processes - meaning that they control all the functions in the body that are not under your conscious will, like breathing, circulation, digestion.  They regulate your energy levels, they keep you alert in demanding situations, they regulate your electrolytes and kidney function, they produce sex hormones, they also produce anti-inflammatory steroids and many other functions.  So when we are exposed to stress or even when we drink coffee, our adrenals get a strong punch to release adrenaline - a short-term stress hormone, and also cortisol - a prolonged stress hormone, that is also involved in sugar metabolism and has anti-inflammatory properties.  In this situation, our body is thinking that we are in danger, like...

It’s Not What You Eat, It’s What You Metabolize!

Eating an alkaline diet does not guarantee that your body will be optimally alkaline. It's not what you eat, it's what you metabolize! So due to the inefficiency of your digestive and glandular system, you might not be healing, despite a perfect diet! Actually, you could just get much worse! 😔 And there are so many things that might be wrong, like low stomach acid, SIBO, candida, poor pancreas, liver and gallbladder, malnutrition, malabsorption,  nutritional deficiencies, poor kidney function, improper elimination, a sluggish thyroid, weak adrenals, hormonal imbalance, presence of other parasites, heavy metals, inflamed guts, mucoid plaque, and so on. The body can not heal with acidic ph, neither disease can persist in an alkaline environment! If the food you eat is not properly digested, it gets fermented and literally rots in your stomach and guts, creating loads of acidity. On the other hand, our emotional state and pace of breathing directly affect our...

Dangers Of Long Term No-Fat Diets!

 I know most of you swear by 801010 diets and LOW to NO FAT meals.  I've also been 3,5 years mostly pure fruitarian and I ate NO FAT at all, cause my symptoms were so scary that I never dared to try. So I believed that a fat diet is a way to go.  Well, after almost 8 years on this lifestyle and working with hundreds of clients, I have a different opinion now! AVOIDING THE PROBLEM IS NOT FIXING THE PROBLEM!🤔  So many people came to me that have been 2,3,4 years low fat or fat-free high raw vegans, yet their tolerance to fats didn't improve at all, actually, it only got worse!😬  When we are damaged, and our living energy is low, we have to cut out all the foods that require more digestive energy, to preserve and over time recover the energy of the body.✨  Also, detox is slowed down in...

The Mysterious Right Shoulder Pain

I use to suffer from stiff neck and right shoulder pain for years. Doctors would say to change a pillow, to pay attention to how I sleep, but no one ever mentioned, that it all might be due to my inflamed gallbladder and congested liver?! 🤔Well if you suffer from this kind of chronic pain, and you don't believe me, you can test it out 😉The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped sac that is collecting the bile (liver digestive juice and is concentrating it about 20 times to make it powerful enough to break the fat molecules). If the gallbladder gets filled with stones from poor diet, genetics, exposure to chemicals, or similar, it can become inflamed and painful.Usually, the pain is pulsating especially after a heavy fatty or protein-rich meal under the lower right rib cage.😬If the inflammation persists, pain is transferred to the right shoulder and right...

Your Congested Liver May Be Responsible For The Leg Swelling

I've dealt with leg edema over a decade after a life treating car crash. I used to carry 5-10 liters of excess liquid in my body and I was told that things will only get worse. 😭 If you have this problem and tried everything, from compression socks, exercise, lymph massage, or dangerous pills, it's time to take a different approach!😉 Your body is producing the hormone ALDOSTERONE that is responsible for keeping the correct levels of salt and water retention in the body. Too much of this hormone will make you puffy, soft, and watery and then the gravity will do its job dragging every to the bottom. 😵 But why would your body start producing an excess of this hormone? 🤔 Your blood is constantly passing through the LIVER, and it's being checked, so the excess of this hormone would be detected and neutralized. But because the liver is malfunctioning, the...

Iodine Deficiency On Low Sodium Diets

So you finally found out how white table salt is unhealthy, processed, and completely depleted from any other minerals, so you switched to Himalayan pink salt or Celtic sea salt. And it feels good for a while, but then various symptoms come into play. Himalayan salt has 84 minerals and trace elements, Celtic and sea salt may be a bit less, but unlike table salt 'they're not 'enriched' by iodine and have only tiny amounts of it. While our body doesn't even need inorganic salts, but plant salts, it does need many minerals and trace elements to function properly. Iodine is a micronutrient required for thyroid hormone production. Early Chinese medical writings in approximately 3600 B.C. were the first to record the decreases in goiter size from eating seaweed and burnt sea sponge. Iodine was first time discovered in the early 19th century and by the end of the 19th century, it was demonstrated...

Why Are You Feeling Run Down After Switching To Vegan Diet?

So you finally managed to leave all animal products behind and it felt amazingly good at the start, but then things started going down the hill and you absolutely feel run down?! Could it be that the myth that vegans are weaker is actually true? Is it the lack of protein? Or the fact that there is a chance that the vegan diet is incomplete? Maybe because vegans don't get B12 from the diet? No, my friend, what actually happened is that your 'hormone therapy' has finally ended! What do I mean? I mean that you have been whole your life doping your system with animal hormones! Yup and yuck! Animal farmers are legally using synthetic estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, growth hormone, and who knows what else to produce more animal products for a lower cost. And not to forget the natural hormones produced by animals. And yes my dear, this yuckiness is ending...

Problems With Prolonged Low Blood Pressure

Over 70% of people that come to me have low blood pressure. And while many might think that low blood pressure is better than high blood pressure, the truth is, both have long-term implications. By definition, hypotension or low blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out the blood. Very often, low blood pressure is an indicator of low adrenal glands. Low power. Low energy. And most importantly, low nutrition and low oxygen absorption. Some of the symptoms of low blood pressure include dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, fainting, nausea, blurred vision, shakiness... But depending on the degree, it can be linked to certain nutritional deficiencies, but also as extreme, result in much serious situations like a shock. Because most people live with it, by constantly using stimulants like coffee and teas, chocolate, and a high salt diet, many don't think about long-term applications...

Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Swirl

My mom used to make us cakes, cookies, and all kinds of sweets all of the time, and although it was a tough choice, the blueberry lemon cheesecake was my favorite thing. Now I managed to recreate exactly the same taste that I remember from childhood, just in a much much healthier way! Ingredients: Blueberry Lemon Jam:1 cup of frozen wild blueberries2/3 cup of pitted Mazafati dates1 tsp of lemon juice1 tsp of lemon zest1/2 tsp of vanilla powder or extractLemony Vanilla Nice Cream:4 frozen bananas1/2 tsp of lemon juice1/2 Tsp of lemon zest1/2 tsp vanilla powder1 tsp of nutritional yeast for cheesy taste (optional)Topping: Handful of fresh blueberries and lemon zest Directions: Blueberry Lemon Jam: First, defrost the one cup of frozen wild blueberries for 15 minutes and then toss them in the blender.

SIBO – Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

Ok so you have constant bloating, have stomach pain and nausea, burps, bad breath, you feel inflamed, and can't digest/absorb anything correctly? The chances are that you might be suffering from SIBO. What is interesting is that most often these bacteria didn't come from outside, and they usually already live in your body, but now they are in a completely wrong location, so this is causing the trouble! So usually those bacteria are living in the large intestine and decomposing fiber and undigested stuff, while the small intestine is more focused on absorbing nutrients and has naturally much smaller amounts of bacteria. During the stress, hormones, that control opening and closing of the ileocecal valve, that separates the small and large intestine, get weaker. So now this valve is left loose and bacterias start migrating up towards the small intestines. Now all your foods are fermenting inside instead of being digested and your body...

Lymphatic System Does Not Have A Pump Like Heart

So we all know the importance of the heart - it pumps the blood to every single cell of your body to bring oxygen and nutrients. So imagine blood as a food delivery system. Every cell takes the nutrients and performs its function in the body and as a byproduct, it has metabolic waste. So now that self-generated trash has to leave the cell, in order to keep the cells healthy. As we eat the foods to use as energy and nutrition and later go to the toilet to eliminate the waste, so does each and every cell of our body. Cells can't move, so they get served. 😂 Blood is bringing nutrients and who is cleaning the trash? Your lymphatic system! That is the sewer system of your body. But there is one problem. While blood has the heart as a pump to move it around the body, your lymphatic system has no pump! So...

And Where Do You Get Your Protein?

If I got a penny for each time someone asked me this, I'd be hella rich by now 😂 By let's get serious and dive into this topic 😉 In the book 'The China Study', written by Colin Campbell, a scientist, who has conducted 40 years of nutrition research to analyze the effects of diet on health, is demonstrated with animal and human studies, that every time protein intake raises over 12% of the calories, the cancer markers raise. 🤔 They compared animal and plant protein and with plant-based protein, cancer marker growth was slower, yet still evident. The more protein was increased, the more cancers and tumors were growing. 😮 Then they changed diet, and drastically reduced protein intake, and you know what happened, the cancer markers started reducing and cancers disappearing! 😮 This study was repeated across the world and the results were always the same! So now you tell me, what does...

Your Wrinkles Are The Map Of Your Inner Health

These days people are obsessed with beauty and spend millions to reverse the effects of aging. Many use fillers to make the face more plump and hide the wrinkles, do extensive surgeries to imitate youth, but with incredible effort and very painful procedures, many celebrities are looking tired, old, and defeated by age. 😔 I use makeup as well, but for me, MIRROR IS A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL, NOT A BEAUTY TOOL! Over the years I learned that my face would drastically change, just a couple of hours of ingesting foods that are not ideal for me. The wrinkles would get pronounced, lymphatic stagnation and puffiness would deform the face and the neck would get very swollen and thick. Chinese medicine has a face map, where each part of the face corresponds with inner organs. Over the years, I learned to read most of the symptoms, just by observing the person's face, hands, feet, figure, and...

B12 – Is Vegan Diet Incomplete?
 

You will really rarely hear from me that I recommend using any synthetic vitamins, minerals, or supplements. Just a fact that inorganic minerals are 10.000 times bigger than ionic plant form of minerals, makes them often too large to pass the cell membrane, and therefore they're being poorly absorbed. When a plant absorbs the water and minerals from the earth, it is using the power of the Sun through photosynthesis to maintain life and turn those inorganic/stone minerals into a bioactive highly reactive form. So now when we eat plants, we get the best possible source of nutrition. 🙏🌿☀️ B12 is a bit special, usually, it is produced by good bacterias living in soil, so if we would consume our foods in an unwashed state - like all other creatures on this planet, there would be a sufficient amount of B12 on the surface of produce. But because we're 'modern super-advanced human', that fears...

Food Addictions – Using Foods To Numb Out Stress, Anxiety & Emotional Issues

You know, I wasn't always a happy and balanced person, things I'm about to say are coming from my personal experience and I was a food addict and I used foods for everything, except for nutrition. So if you disagree with any part of the post, please don't get offended, cause I know I would be seriously hurt or mad If someone told me this stuff before. Here are few possible reasons why your indulging in foods turns into self - sabotage : 1) PARASITES. 🐍 Those who know me, know that I'm BIG on parasites. I don't care how many years you eat fruits until you start using herbs and different protocols to eradicate the parasites and clean the inner terrain, you will be in one or another form, manipulated in their interest! You won't find this in many sources, but I can guarantee this - CANDIDA IS CAUSING ANXIETY! Yes, those...
