I personally think that Nutrition is the new healthcare. I have no interest in adding years to your life, I want to add life to your years. Our bodies are so awesomely designed, they have the amazing ability of self healing and rejuvenation when provided the right materials, which conveniently enough are right at our local markets, and being grown on farms in our local communities & through international trade even foods like Goji berries, which are the basis for chinese medicine are readily available. Power packed, nutrient dense, cell strengthening, and disease reversing foods are what we need to consume to live a vibrant, healthy life.
The Father of western medicine Hippocrates had this to say:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
More than two thirds of people in America are overweight or obese, we have a huge problem! We area country where we are not focusing on prevention and instead are focused on invasive and destructive treatments. On average about six percent of Doctors have any nutritional training and rely heavily on pharmaceutical, lab made drugs.
“For the first 50 years of your life the food industry is trying to make you fat. Then, the second 50 years, the pharmaceutical industry is treating you for everything” – Pierre Dukan
We are up against a lot, the industries powered by billions of dollars and government backing make it difficult to rid ourselves of the toxic, life shortening, hospital readying “frankenfoods”, and the lack of labeling and awareness makes seemingly healthy, but toxic nonetheless foods fly under the radar and into our homes.
I grew up being told the food pyramid was the guide to proper eating, questions started flying around my head as i grew older and wiser Ex. Why does the food pyramid have such an emphasis on milk? without me going into extensive research on any particular subject, including milk I will tell you that milk is great for something and that something is a newborn baby calf. Do your research about milk, HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), Aspartame, artificial flavorings, pesticides, monsanto, GMO’s (Genetically modified organisms), Dyes, Preservatives, MSG (Mono sodium glutamate), Trans Fats, Sodium Sulfite, Sodium Nitrate, BHA & BHT, Potassium bromate, among many of the hidden and not so hidden and often misunderstood violations of natural, healthy foods that should be used to make our lives vibrant and in a state of feeling good and satiated.
Food is essential for life, and in my beliefs flavored in millions of distinguishable flavors because we have a loving creator who didn’t make all foods taste like oatmeal, but we are being poisoned. We need a whole new educational program set up in the k-12 era of life for food understanding. We need a system that is focused on prevention to ease the cost of healthcare in America. We need to educate those suffering illnesses that can be reversed by nutritional changes through community programs. We need to know our farmers and get to know how our food is being made and processed. We need to re-educate ourselves on healthy living and eating, lots of new research on old subjects provide accurate maps for a healthy lifestyle. We need to go Local.
I lost my grandfather in 2009 to strictly obesity/diet related issues. I want to learn the rest of my life how to add life to your years and my families so that we can prevent was is preventable and live a life of love and vibrant health. You are meant to feel wonderful and alive, vibrating with health and abundance, We can get there together if we just learn more and make small changes on a consistent basis.
Health, nutrition and spiritual balance to cure, reverse and prevent 99.5% of all diseases * in my opinion
