My devotional yesterday morning was the Morning devo from Charles Spurgeon. Do you know what it talks about? Helping others, Spurgeon said, “We are to point sinners to the Saviour, and the weary to a divine resting-place…Lights are also used as warnings.” So, here’s the gospel- Jesus died suffering hell in your place. He had no sin, but he went to the cross and suffered God’s wrath against your sin. Then God raised Jesus from the dead. As Spurgeon said in September 3 Morning devotional,
“‘I know that my Redeemer liveth,’ saith Job. Get positive knowledge of your love of Jesus, and be not satisfied till you can speak of your interest in him as a reality, which you have made sure by having received the witness of the Holy Spirit, and his seal upon your soul by faith. True love to Christ is in every case the Holy Spirit’s work, and must be wrought in the heart by him. He is the efficient cause of it; but the logical reason why we love Jesus lies in himself. Why do we love Jesus? Because he first loved us. Why do we love Jesus? Because he “gave himself for us.” We have life through his death; we have peace through his blood. Though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor.”
The Lord blessed me the day before yesterday to ask The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) for prayer for the aftereffects of the two lesions on my spine to be gone. Today I had a breakthrough. I’d started the autoimmune paleo (AIP) diet by Mickey nine days ago. I woke up yesterday feeling awful and said I’m quitting this diet. I literally felt like I’d ingested my maximum for vinegar and couldn’t have another drop. I read in a testimonial in the comments that Mickey suggested a girl read about histamine diets and realized the AIP diet wasn’t about allergies, which is what attracted me to it. I started reading the high histamine lists, and they are exactly in line with the tests my allergist ran and the problem I have. It was a God thing.
Everything fell into place like a big puzzle. Snake bites use phospholipase to lyse lecithin to start CNS deterioration; the doctors treat snake bites with antihistamines and cimetidine and epinephrine and then antivenom. So, look at this; lysolecithin (from processed foods or products) begins CNS deterioration and causes relapses. We could treat a relapse with a low histamine diet and no lysolecithin from processed foods and products. This should not only help recover from the relapse but to prevent new relapses from happening. (Don’t try to treat it with meds like antihistamines and cimetidine only unless you are ready for side effects. I guess if I had trigeminal neuralgia I’d take those though, but you must not leave out the elimination of the high histamine foods and the elimination of man-made lysolecithin.) Remember, I am not a doctor and am not giving medical advice. So, now that I’ve said that, can I say, this is the answer!? I mean, this is the answer to MS and to anyone who suffers from the aftereffects of a snake bite. Your gait, your balance, your temperature intolerance, low blood pressure, etc.; it’s all there. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!
One correlation between snake bite and lysolecithin is that your central nervous system is brutally assaulted, and recovery in a full and complete sense to your former self is rare if not impossible.
The reason I tried the AIP diet was because my body is full of inflammation. No matter what I do, the inflammation does not go away. I saw a dentist who specialized in alternative medicines in the early 2000s, and he made me aware that my body is full of inflammation. I wonder how my life would be different if I’d done what he suggested then. Now, I’m ready. Let’s do it. Changing my diet to just eat a raspberry? I’m all in. I’ve lost so much, and I really want it back. I want to honor the Lord and live for him. He gives me energy for each task; all I do is ask, and he supplies. God is an awesome God. I’m telling you he’s real and answers prayer.
So, what was wrong with the AIP for me? I suffered from the high histamine foods like vinegar. It wasn’t the right fit for multiple sclerosis, for me. I could barely stay awake! But yesterday and today, this comes full circle, thanks be to God.
Let me apologize to those I scoffed at in an earlier post. (I’ve had to repent of my scoffing and poor attitude that is running in this blog. May the Lord forgive me.) I scoffed at the people trying to pin multiple sclerosis on yeast (which creates histamine) or mitochondria or whatever else. It’s all there with histamine.
I’ve always seen the liberation treatment as a real thing that gives relief. I prayed to have it done, but God kept showing me I would not have it. Oh, what a bitter pill to swallow thinking I’d always be like this, a little special needs. But now I see that the lysolecithin compromised my body and the vasoconstriction caused by histamines is what is affecting my veins.
Let’s tie this up with a nice little bow – lysolecithin causes multiple sclerosis and a low histamine diet and products should help reverse and heal the body. It’s a big puzzle, and it fits all together perfectly. As I researched more, I see scholarly articles supporting this correlation, and all the ins and outs of the histamine information fit with all the lysolecithin information.
So, how do I feel in the face of this major revelation? Isolated. Who can I call and share my joy with? No one! I wore them all out when I first started researching this thing. I just praise God over and over. He knows my huge, HUGE relief that I may live more than five good years now. He knows my huge relief that my skin problems are going to heal up. He knows my huge relief that I can now eat with much freedom and participate with others and not be worried that what I eat will paralyze me or kill me or another family member. There is a child in my family with a shrimp allergy. The allergy is life-threatening, but hopefully God will reverse it. This child usually chooses to eat low-histamine foods. I see this as a protective covering from the Lord. May the Lord always protect this person from shellfish and many dangers, toils, and snares.
My brother just died this summer of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) staff. He was walking around the house going, “I’m dying; I’m dying.” That, on one level, is how I’ve felt for the last six years- although he really was on his last few days. MRSA is not given much credence, but it is life-threatening. The doctors told him he’d have about ten years, and he had nine. The funniest, yet poignant memory I have about him having MRSA staff is when he and Mom went to Spain a few years ago. He had a cane. He requested an aisle seat. He ambled through the line, and then the attendant asked about his leg. (You know people get MRSA in their knee first.) Then the attendant asked about his snowboard as his carry on. Funny! You could see the confusion and doubt on the attendant’s face. I tried so hard to pray through MRSA and see if the Lord would lead me to any cause or help, but God didn’t want to reveal that to me. So, now Brother’s in heaven, and he can’t come to me, but I will go to him, as David said. Hopefully, I will go to him much later if this histamine diet thing works, which scientifically it should; it all lines up. I can’t wait. The Lord, the Lord, the gracious and compassionate Lord, slow to anger and abounding in love.
May the Lord heal all your diseases. Jesus is Lord; give your life to him. He is faithful and true; God loves us so much that he sent his one and only son to die for us. God demonstrated his mighty power in raising Jesus from the dead. Believe, trust, and rely on Jesus for your salvation from sin and death.
