Most people use January as their month to begin their renewals. a renewed mind by committing to reading more. A renewed spirituality by going to church more or reading their bible more. Some… a renewed body by committing to changing their way of eating via embarking on a low-carb diet.

What if you made the commitment for a renewal of body, mind AND spirit/soul?

There is a FB group called, Carnivore 75 Hard Challenge. This is not MY group as in I did not start it.

I am a member but I joined, and then did not complete the challenge. On January 1st. I will rejoin and recommit.

Who is with me? here is a peek at what you can expect. Remember, it is a HARD challenge. It’s going to be difficult to do.

I had written in a previous post about doing the Young living Slique products but they are still sold out. I am doing the Carnivore 75 Challenge instead.



Daily carnivore

How to Cook Bacon in the Oven - {Crispy Baked Bacon} - Kristine's Kitchen

One of the first things someone new to the carnivore way of eating (WOE) needs to realize is; as with everything in life, there is controversy, differing opinions, criticism, and judgement with this way of life. Keep in mind that this is YOUR diet. No matter how many people eat this way (and there are many, many, people who do), no matter what ‘experts’ tell you you should do, you are only going to stick with this woe if you are able to do it and see/feel results. So if you need to eat bacon everyday, do it. If you need to eat 12 eggs everyday, do it. If you cannot function without coffee do it but keep in mind everything has a connection to something. Meaning, there is a higher level of histamine (a chemical some people are sensitive to) in bacon than other meat. Coffee and dairy can have certain affects on certain people. Read, read, read, and experiment! This is your body. This is your health journey. People are going to contribute their opinions but no one is the boss of you or your health journey. Not even your spouse or family.

I have always found it interesting when obese people and people who are ill because of the Standard American Diet (SAD) and being in the medical system give out dietary and health advice. Do they not have mirrors? Do they not realize that how they feel is not normal nor healthy?

The carnivore woe is animal based. The percentage is up to you but the higher your percentage of animal based eating the more successful you will be at healing… to a point. I saw to a point because while your body detoxes form decades of crappy eating and yes… I include eating vegetables and drinking smoothies as part of the crappy way of eating that toxified your body. It’s not just highly processed foods that are detrimental to our physical and mental health. We have been fed a lie that vegetables are healthy and good for us. They are not.

Someone on social media posted about how eating carnivore ruined their relationship with food. I am mending that and saying no, it was how the ‘powers-that-be’ allowed American food to become; over processed, addictive, lacking in nutrition, and flooded with harmful chemicals from farming, and turning cooking and eating into entertainment that ruined our relationship with food. This was all done in the name of profiting from illness and addiction. It is not beef that has ruined the planet but unchecked greed.

Eating meat is going to reset your body. It will remember how it was made to function. Eating food in neon colors is not normal. Mono-cropping is not normal and is bad for the planet. Animals exist to provide food, and clothing for people. THIS is the natural order of things.

Want to be healthier? First take a good, honest look at your diet. Change whatever is not working for you instead of continuing down an unhealthy path and waiting for it to work for you, take charge of yourself!

If you have been plant based or plant heavy in your eating style, go slow. Add in a steak everyday and an egg or two. Remove from your menu all dark leafy greens and/or all white foods such as potatoes, rice, beans grains, and legumes. Be sure to drink enough water. Stop drinking soft drinks fruit juices, green smoothies, etc.

Keep a food diary. Note what works and what does not.

Good luck… keep going!

Carnivore Meat Up!

My breakfast, pork tenderloin.

Last night, I, and five other amazing, strong women gathered at a local fast-food Mexican restaurant to meet each other and give one another support in walking a healthier life path. It was amazing. I had a great time meeting these beautiful, strong women doing what they need to do to become a healthier (perhaps healthiest) version of themselves.

I have eaten the carnivore way off and on for several years. I need to buckle down and keep going. I tend to stop when I do too much ‘dumping’ which is pretty much what it sounds like. You see, as we go along in life eating toxic plants; kale, beans, grains, legumes, etc. the toxins in plants accumulate in our organs and fat cells. When you stop eating them your body does what is called, ‘dumping’ to rid itself of all of those toxic plant chemicals.

A photo from my honeymoon in Dec. of 2004. Don’t let the smile fool you. I was very ill in that photo. I almost died before getting married that year!

I have struggled with my health my whole life. Eating meat is not about pleasure or luxury. It is about survival. People like Bill Gates and radical vegans want to take away my right to a healthy life. I will fight for my right for freedom of choice in my kitchen!

I should, as a free citizen, be able to decide the right course of wellness that best suits me. Eating fake meat, and toxic plant matter is not the best choice for my body. To that end, I renewed my commitment to eating carnivore. The ladies in the meat up last night were very inspirational. Many good testimonials on improved wellness were shared as well as tips and recipes.

Tired of being tired? Looking for a way toward optimum health? The carnivore diet just might be the answer but you will never know until you give it a go.

There are groups on FB and people to follow on IG.

Come on over to IG and give me a follow @melissabishopco or @kelly_hogan91 @carnivoremd2.0 (IG keeps censoring him because darn it! Healthy meat heals people.) @shawnbaker1967. You might even discover someone to follow I have not yet met.

The food industry is fraught with lies to sell, sell, sell. Eating meat is good for you, and no one needs to eat a vegetable EVER are truth!


What are you willing to do to heal?

Hippocrates

“Before you heal someone, ask him if he’s willing to give up the things that make him sick.”― Hippocrates

The other day I was on Twitter and saw a tweet someone had posted about trying to get their daughter to realize she is overweight and needs to do something about it. The parents had taken her to the doctor and she has obesity related health issues. The daughter’s response when told she needed to lose weight? “You’re fat shaming me!”. Since when did we start calling concern over obesity and poor health ‘fat shaming’?

Fat shaming: ‘You’re fat, stupid and worthless!”

vs.

Not Fat Shaming: “You are morbidly obese and you will eventually die, possibly after a lifetime of illness and reduced quality of life if you do not suddenly drop dead at a young age, if you do not lose weight.”

Obesity is not JUST being fat. It is another way of self medicating for a variety of issues, and it is incredibly popular.

There are ways of feeling better, of dealing with all of those swirling thoughts and emotions, that does not depend on food for grounding. What’s grounding? you ask? Grounding is where you are trying to stop feeling as if you are about to explode, or ‘float off’ into the vastness of space. because of your heightened state of emotions.

when our emotions are off balance it can lead to what is commonly joked about (but is not funny) as; ‘self medicating’. Self medicating can present itself in many ways; over eating, sexual promiscuity, drinking, drugs, even violence against others can be used as a way of feeling more in control and releasing those pent up feelings.

Healthy alternatives to self medicating include, but are not limited to; meditating, going for a walk in nature, working out to release tension out of your body and increase serotonin and endorphin levels, practicing deep breathing, and yes… using essential oils.

Many studies have been done on the healing benefits of essential oils. Advance oil blends go beyond lavender for calming or peppermint for boosting oneself into a good mood. From helping people to focus, to combating viruses and killing bacteria, essential oils can be used in almost every aspect of our daily lives for improved health and wellness both physically and mentally. While these claims have not been approved by the FDA, there are studies showing the efficacy of essential oils.

Are you ready for an essential oils challenge?

You can either purchase one bottle of oils: Valor… OR

Purchase the Feelings Kit from Young Living. which has several oils including Valor to help you deal with, and possibly overcome, some of the emotional upheaval you are experiencing due to the present state of things.

This is the link to my Young Living site where you can place an order for either the Valor single bottle, or the Feelings Kit (both are trademarked by Young Living). https://yl.pe/bishopoils

Remember that old saying, ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!’? Learning how to deal with life without the use of addictive foods and chemicals now, means you will not be dealing with the expense of trying to fix the damage from all of that later.

p.s. the book ‘The Four fold Path to Healing’ has nothing to do with Young Living and is not endorsed by them. It is full of great information and I placed it in the post in hopes some of you might be intrigued enough to purchase it and explore some different ideas about what it really means to heal.

p.p.s. The informaiton in this post is for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to replace the advice of medical professionals. I am not diagnosing or treating anyone. I am merely sharing my personal story of my path to healing.



Woke Florida Doctors embarrass themselves

Florida Doctors Stage Symbolic Walkout Over Surge in Unvaxxed Patients
Image from Business Insider

For decades they sat by silently while a high carb, low-fat diet caused illness and death and did nothing. They did nothing while doctors around them caused people to become addicted to painkillers. Soda and candy machines in schools, silence. They kept to themselves the information about the long term effects on women’s bodies caused by birth control pills, ivf, and abortions.

I truly think that if doctors suddenly had a pay cut and/or could not make as much money (books, speaking gigs, supplements, etc. as they do from illness things would turn around in the medical community.

Suddenly THESE doctors are showing ‘deep concern’ about being around un-‘vaccinated’ people?

Have you met, St. Hildegard?

Photo by Melissa Bishop

If you have been wanting to begin your own journey toward improved health through nutrition, essential oils, and stones/crystals I highly recommend procuring a copy of this book for your health and wellness library.

This book is chock-full of recipes, explanations, and lists of healing foods and spices.

I have made some of the recipes. They are delicious! Think about what WOULD have been available at that moment in time. what could they have grown and preserved? What spices did they have access to thanks to trade ships bringing spices to them from the tropics? Seasonal eating took on a whole new meaning. Although they had spices and foods available to them that perhaps their parents and/or grandparents did not have access to, they still did not have refrigerated shipping, processed foods, etc. that we have today. Without refrigeration, preservation of foods, how spices and herbs were dried, bottled, make into infusions, etc. at that time are different, but not totally alien, to our way of preserving herbs and turning them into useful tools for improved health and wellness.

St. Hildegard thought highly of chestnuts and certain spices such as; nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, to name a few. She even has curry blends which do not contain any peppers which seem to be how much of today’s curries are prepared. I personally cannot eat peppers. her spice blends which do not use peppers or paprika (made from peppers) are of special interest to me, and other people who suffer when they eat peppers or the spices derived from peppers.

Since many herbs and spices can be enjoyed in food through cooking and infusion into wines and vinegar, it makes sense to become better at cooking if you; hardly, if ever, step into your kitchen unless it’s to toss out the take-out containers used to transport dinner to your door.

YOU CAN DO THIS! You can learn how to cook. You can learn about spices and herbs and how to use them in cooking, preserving, wine infusions, etc.

I will be covering more of this in upcoming blog posts and Youtube videos.



Here’s to the healers

Photo credit: Katherine Hanlon@tinymountain

Here’s to the healers who, like the myrrh bearing women of the bible, risk so much, and give so much of themselves for the benefit of others.

Here’s to the healers who study endlessly. Who learn the healing properties of plants. Who see the detriment of excessive use of modern pharmaceuticals and offer options for those who are willing. To those who worked hard to keep their families, friends, and other loved ones, out of hospitals… especially during the pandemic. Here’s to the foragers, the keepers of the hearth & home and those who use themselves as test subjects before offering the remedy to others. Here’s to those who wait patiently for the weeks it takes to make a tincture or infusion. Here is to the tea blenders, to those who study crystals and other alternative means of healing. To those who believe in miracles and desire to create them.

Here’s to those who know meat heals. Who go for walks in the woods and bring home pockets full of miracles. Here’s to those grinding herbs in their kitchens making poultices, salves and ointments.

Here’s to those of you who looked for the best path for you and walk it… willing to share your knowledge with those who will listen.

To you, the invisible care givers and healers, I raise a glass of fizzy drink to you.

Initiative 16- because some vegans love animals more than people

If Initiative 16 passes in Colorado, I will be more worthy of life than a human! Photo by @vanderfilms on Unsplash

I can be murdered at any stage of life while growing in my mother’s tummy but Initiative 16 protects animals from being butchered (the reason why many of them exist) until they have lived to 25% of their life expectancy. why do you love animals more than me? Photo by
Sharon McCutcheon@sharonmccutcheon on Unsplash

Here is a quote from the, NARAL Pro-choice Colorado website which outlines when a woman may have an abortion.

Colorado is one of the few states where a late abortion can be obtained. Outpatient abortion is available up to 26 weeks. In addition, medically indicated termination of pregnancy up to 34 weeks is also an option for conditions such as fetal anomalies, genetic disorder, fetal demise and/or or severe medical problems.

Folks this is demonic, plain and simple that animal life is more revered than human life. Initiative 16 was written up by 2 members of extremist vegan groups. If this very bizarre initiative passes, many ranches and farms, veterinary practices, horse and other animal breeders will go out of business.

It would be great if far left leaning persons felt the same passion for preserving human life as they do for preserving my breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

If anyone reading this is a lawmaker or will be voting on this lunacy, I hope you vote against it. Such illogical and radical laws have no place in a modern nation. We are a nation that kills our unborn children but fights to protect the lives of animals who are not being hurt. who live for the sole purpose of providing vital nutrients, as well as much needed products for millions of people? When did we become such fools?

I truly believe we have become so disconnected form nature we no longer understand many of our ancestral practices of agriculture and farming/ranching.

320 Anti Vegan ideas in 2021 | anti vegan, vegan, bones funny

Killing an entire industry, and forcing the price of animal based products to increase until no one can afford to eat them, is inhumane. Obviously self-hatred has reached new heights in Colorado, so much so that the hate has spread out until it has engulfed all people. This initiative puts a hit out on the health and wellbeing of everyone, even vegans. They just can’t see that far down the road.

Bring back sanity to Colorado. Kill Initiative 16 (formerly known as PAUSE).
