Raw Oatmeal No-Bakes

 My girls and I enjoy making these healthy oatmeal cookies that require no baking and even no cooking on the stove – it’s all completely raw!  


2 cups Old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Raw (or regular) honey
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients and form into balls.  We always test a little to see if a spoonful more of peanut butter or honey needs added.  We like to refrigerate them and eat them cold too.

You can also add flax seeds, coconut, sesame seeds, wheat germ, raisins, etc.  Adjust the amount of other ingredients as needed.  

Enjoy! :)

Live Blood Analysis – We Are As Healthy As Our Blood Is!

Did you know that we are only as healthy as our blood is?  Our blood circulates through our body every few minutes.  Therefore, one drop of blood that has traveled around the entire body is all it takes to see the entire life of a person.  The Bible says that “the blood is the life” in Deuteronomy 12:23.
How is this test performed?  The finger is pricked and one drop of blood is observed under a microscope.  Here is what healthy blood cells look like:  They move freely and have smooth edges.

A live blood analysis shows the health of any organ and gland.  When I had this done, I could see on a screen the quality of my red blood cells and the activity of my white blood cells.  This test can show early signs of disease or cancer, so you can prevent them.  It also shows if you have candida, parasites, yeast, bacteria, fungus, uric acid, stress on any organs, are deficient in any vitamins or minerals, etc.

Why is this test better than a regular blood analysis?  Because~ there are things that show up in our blood when it’s “live” that don’t show up later. (I think it may be “live” for 30 min.?  Something like that.)  When a regular blood analysis is done and sent to a lab, many things have died that can be seen during a live blood analysis. If a regular test shows up that you are “healthy” and “fine”, but you don’t feel “healthy” and “fine”, a live blood analysis will show what is really going on in your body all the time.
I’ll have to admit that when I had my appointment, I was skeptical that it would really be accurate.  So, when I arrived, I simply sat down and smiled at the lady – making sure I didn’t tell her first any ailments or symptoms I had.  I was so shocked when she began pointing out things on the screen and telling me how I was feeling and ailments I lived with everyday!  She could also tell I didn’t have the best diet (yikes!  I thought that was my secret!)  I was able to ask her what she recommended that I do.  I could even make follow-up calls with any questions.  And yes, her suggestions made some very annoying joint pain disappear in a few weeks!  She also gave me suggestions to improve my damaged liver.  If you’ve read My Health Story, you know how my liver was damaged!  I personally recommend this test to everyone, even if you feel completely fine.  You will be truly informed of your over-all health, and it could even help save your life!
Where can you get this test done?  In my area, we have a local health food store that allows a lady to set up her equipment and do them.  So,  contact a local health food store or a larger one like Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s to see if they have any information about it.  You won’t regret it!  Prevention is the best medicine!

My Health Story Part 4: My Recommendation For You!


Don’t miss the other 3 posts of My Health Story, you can catch up by clicking below:

Perhaps you read my health story and you or someone you know suffer from unexplained symptoms.  

Are you tired all the time?  

Do you not wake up feeling refreshed?  

Are you dizzy at times with no explanation?  

Short of breath?  

These things plague many people, and the solution could be simply replenishing yourself with nutrients you are depleted of.  (Also be sure that you’re eating healthy foods and not trying to live off fast-food and sugar!)  

It’s always wise to be tested at a doctor to make certain there is nothing serious wrong like a disease or cancer.  If the tests come back that you are “healthy” (which I hope they do!!!), you can bet that you’re probably very depleted of something!  I don’t recommend running to Wal-Mart and grabbing a “Once A Day” (or whatever they’re called) :) – you need a good vitamin made from food sources.  

Any easy, excellent way to get vitamins and minerals is from herbs.  This saves a lot of money also to purchase herbal mixes and make teas, tinctures, or add them to smoothies.  I really recommend mixes like Erin’s Super Green Drink Mix, IM Life Tincture, Daily Herba Smoothie Mixes, and Very Berry Tincture.  You can read about those HERE.

Many times, though, when you have the kind of symptoms listed above, there is one or more specific vitamins and minerals that your body needs, and you need to purchase those certain ones and take them in a higher dose to give your body what it needs.  Some people may have taken good vitamins, but not felt better.  When that happens, they probably need certain ones in those higher doses in addition to a daily vitamin mixture.

Applied Kinesiology is the technique that Dr. Sunshine used on me to determine what nutrients I needed to balance myself out.  It definitely worked for me, and I felt such a difference after I replenished myself with what I was lacking.  I was back to my more normal self after a few months and I’d been suffering for years!  I am so thankful that God led me to this doctor!

The technique is described below from his website:

Applied Kinesiology 
A diagnostic tool that utilizes the neuromuscular system through manual muscle testing to access the patient’s underlying problem and to assist us in accurately formulating an appropriate treatment plan. This technique is used in conjunction with other exams to evaluate the patients overall condition.
The key to what is described above are the words “underlying problem”.  We don’t want medication that only covers up symptoms.  It makes more sense to find the true cause of our symptoms and take care of the problem, otherwise the problem will always be there and will always bother you, and will only get worse.
