Eating truly well is eating as big as you are able.
Shannon's fertile mind fed mine with an insight on my 'blaming' the herbal tea with my current 'plight.'
My poor body was overdosing on wheat. My body was being poisoned and today I gave thanks to the tea that expedited my healing. I've been afraid of the second does of the tea, but I will now embrace it.
