Karma's Kreatures is a book series & animation to inspire people to deeply care about our planet. Not from a standpoint of "HEY EARTH DAY", That's not my specific jam, even though i'm in full support. It's that more than ever before we are finding that both the health of our planet & our health are connected. I have personal interest in nutrition and going back to our roots of less is more. I believe that all creatures of the earth are experiencing at a rapid pace diseases with new discoveries that we cannot put a cure to. The ever increasing number of toxins, preservatives, pollution, & any number of chemicals being generated lean in on us & interfere with our biological systems. I believe without interruption we are sick & doomed.
Doctors find themselves perplexed with the best case senario end with a life full of pills & shots to manage the breakdown in our systems. My personal journey started when I was standing in my second neurologist appointment about 4 years ago with a my Doctor saying "I think you have MS". I woke up one morning and my legs not responding properly when i wanted to walk. Felt like crossed wires or an interference in my system. I was perplexed with a the idea of "i THINK you have" as a diagnosis and given i'd had done all of the testing required of me, the multiple MRIs, blood tests, cat scans, a spinal tap, they couldn't firmly diagnose me. The evidence wasn't lining up. I was left with " I think you have... and you should inject yourself with a man made protein to distract your immune system." WHAT!?!?! As scared as i was, this was the first serious health issue i had encountered, i left that doctors office as he said to me " i hope you come back" . Right then i knew fear was a good tactic and not for me. I needed to find answers for myself.
This is where all the nutritional information and going back to nature and working with alternative therapist gave me power. I found for me, modern science provides all the tools to test just not treat. When i evaluated my life my days were stressful filled with busting ass on generating business for my graphic design business. I would rush to work and eat soy sausages because that's healthy protein, right? I shop and pick up fast and what i thought was healthy food options for business people. The first thing the alternative dr (nutritionist/ kinesiologist) told me was get rid of anything in your diet that has MSG, preservatives , or anything additional on the chemical side. I found out there was so much of this in certain things i was eating and had to look up MSG names on line. Very large list.
I believe, you are made up of what you put in the body & this includes not limited to breathing, eating, thinking, & being. I chose to make my way back to basics like planting my own garden on my balcony , growing lettuce, peppers, green onions, kale, cucumbers whatever i could get my hands on. Making sure the seeds were NON GMO not just organic. I cleaned up my thinking and non stop mind by meditating now with an app called Headspace. I also do Yoga, Pilates, Weight training because physical strength is foundational and very important for me as well as calms my mind. I got a DOG. I took on programs that nurture and enrich my ever transforming life. I literally created a life i love.
Karmas Kreatures is a way i will tell this story to empower others to have courage & strength to seek out information for yourself and be unstoppable about it. To create your life despite what feels like a shit card being dealt your direction. For me because this happened ...I became a giant!
