About Elizabeth

I was born and raised in Minden, NV and am proud of my small town roots. I married my high school sweetheart and am madly in love with him. Justin is honorable and it is so neat to learn how we were designed for each other. The longer we are married the more ways we learn and grow together. Currently, we are fighting for my life against Lyme Disease, Babesia, Bartonella and a handful of parasites. I am determined to beat Lyme Disease and be an advocate for other Lymies. I dedicated my life to Jesus and know that when I die, if that's tomorrow, or in 80 years, I am excited to party with Jesus in Heaven!

Food As Medicine Documentary

Good morning! I woke up and learned about a great new documentary available for free on Amazon Prime! This documentary reinforces a lot of the things I’m learning in school, in addition to what I’ve experienced in my own journey.

For me I did an extensive elimination diet which helped me learn what foods cause inflammation in my body. Foods like tomatoes, peppers, and rice do not help my body optimally function. Those foods sound healthy, but after doing an elimination diet I learned they weren’t good for me and cause me a lot of pain and bloating. Every person is different and everyone’s body is different.

This documentary featured Mickey Trescott from Autoimmune Paleo. They also follow a lot of people with varying diagnoses and health concerns. These people are using different ways food is helping them to heal. For example, one is attempting to decrease sugar while another is attempting to try a Paleo lifestyle. I appreciate that Food As Medicine also addresses socioeconomic issues related to eating fresh foods. Check it out! It’s a good one!
