Well… Well… Well…
Stomach flu vs. Allergic Reaction
It has been a pretty exciting week! My intuition has been on high frequency, casting new ideas and concepts. Working with my mentors on the power of deliberate intentions. Learning life lessons about my purpose as a wife, mother, and friend. With all of this new moon energy everything was laid out for the perfect Spring Break, right? Well I won’t complain — just not what I expected. Or – Did I?
Well… the stomach flu hit the children pretty hard this week. It was like a domino affect. First our middle son, then the oldest, and now our toddler. Our children just so happen to be asthmatic, prone to eczema outbreaks, and allergic reactions (food and environmental). My husband and I had talked about doing a spring detox, but procrastination got the best of us. Or – Did it?
Well… when you do a detox you are giving your body the deep clean that it needs to get back on track with optimum flow… Right? Freeing it up from all the trash that you tried so hard to avoid through the winter. Well lone behold, we got the detox, just not the way we expected.
The Mystery Mix
Well… sometimes we let our children try out certain foods. Trail mix is one snack that I like to make on our own… And I use Chex cereal because, they have a gluten-free brand. But this time, we strayed the path for our best health. After a aseries of various symptoms, including gastric upset, diarrhea, and vomiting, I read the back of the bag to see that it contained all the color dyes that we aim to stay clear from. Hey, when you know better, you should do better, right?
A Quick Lesson In Sacral/Solar-Plexus Detox
Well… since we already knew the dangers of artificial food coloring, we had to be accountable of our part in the bad stomach. So we went on to do our detox and energy work. The main focus had been all about intention. What we want for our children is the best so we have to maintain our posture in doing so. No slumping or dragging our feet.
Well… on Wednesday morning as I engaged the children in a bit of music therapy, it became clear to me why the children were having such an experience over the store-bought trail mix. It was simple to me, but I am not a medical doctor, so don’t judge me for “Free-Styling” on what insight I gathered from all this.
Well… as I was singing one of my favorite songs, “Feel So Good” in a chant style rhythm. As I begin to circle my eldest son, while he lay in prone position, I tell him to just relax I gently touch his belly, feeling the low vibrational energy trying to leave his body. I explain to him my own interpretation of his sickness. I tell him the placement of the chakra system in his body. When I stop at his abdominal region, he tells me, “It was the color dyes, huh mom?” I then explain how the human body is not made to consume artificial colors. The body is like a master computer that can only read like programming. The sacral and solar plexus regions of his body were under attack by artificial intelligence.
Well… I go on to tell him that his system had been compromised because, we allowed him to have artificial food coloring. Which he will not have to worry about again. I also explained that these dyes are a contaminant to the human body, and the body reads these as a threat. I told him, sometimes it takes longer to show up in others, or can sometimes go misdiagnosed as a stomach virus or food poisening — when it can be as simple as an allergic reaction. Like I said, I am no doctor, but I think I’m big on self-directed reserch. Food color can cause allergic reactions that result in similar symptoms as gastroenteritis.
Because gastroenteritis is associated, with viral and bacterial infections, I did not count this out. Be that I have boy children, who are always being told to wash your hands, stay out of your nose, and pants, but little ones are not as concerned, with proper hygiene as we adults are. It was just ironic that they had eaten that (colorful) snack, which later led to a 1, 2, 3 knock out. This led me to the thought that we put out bodies at risk when we step out of alignment, with what is natural and organic. Our seven-year-old sure knows about it now. As he asked me if being sick can be good for you. I answered him by saying, “No one likes to be sick, but sometimes the body needs to reset or (detox) itself , especially when it has had an alien invasion.” Hey, don’t even judge my technique. I have to meet them where they are. The five-year-old and the two-year-old… still have some time to go before they get it… But rest assure that our eldest son will be reading the labels from this point moving forward. —
Get Well ~ Concluding thought:
Parenting is trial and error. There is not a sure shot way to parent your child. We can choose this or that as valid and practical, or magical and whimsical. I just flow with what feels right to me. And when I am out of alignment, I am taught to get right back on track. This can increase ones parenting skills intuitively. Learning that dis-ease, pain, sickness, is a time for rest, resetting our systems, and becoming deeper engaged to the energy that is allowed into your environment, makes a wold of difference. As a parent of children with food allergies, we have learned that not every event is worth the ER.
I can count on my hand how many times we have visited a hospital room for an emergency. As long as we maintain our dietary standards, we are within normal limits of good health. So the next time you think about skipping out on your regular household treats…
… refer back to this blog post and just say, “NO” to artificial food color dyes!
