Like many people, I used to think sickness and disease were a normal part of the human condition. Today, I know that’s simply not true. Chronic ailments may be common, but they’re certainly not normal!
After transforming my own illness, I realized the old adage, “you are what you eat,” is clearly one of the most profound statements in regards to human health.
Sickness and disease is running rampant in modern society, and poor quality food is one of the main contributors. The majority of our food supply (both plant and animal) is doused with disease-promoting carcinogenic chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and/or administered genetically modified growth hormones and antibiotics.
We are not separate from what we eat. Our food goes through an intricate assimilating process and is absorbed by the body on a cellular level, creating our blood, bones, and organs. If our food supply is carcinogenic and unhealthy, we become that when we eat it.
One of the best ways (and there are many) to bring the body back to a better state of health and overall well-being is to change the quality of our food. Organic wholesome and seasonal produce, and naturally raised grass-fed animal products must become staples in our daily diet to help us reverse the unhealthy conditions we have created. More about this in“The Whole Truth – How I Naturally Reclaimed My Health, and You Can Too!”
Consumers are waking up and demanding better foods. Organic food is mainstream and available in most supermarkets and stores. And, there is a grass-roots movement sweeping across the country that encourages consumers to eat locally and seasonally, supporting both physical health and the health of the environment. Our consciousness around food is a testament to the positive changes happening in society.
Even though we’ve made great strides, many of us are still eating a diet comprised of highly-refined processed foods and factory farmed animal products, or haven’t learned how to incorporate better foods into our daily life. To reach an ideal weight and vibrant health we need to change the current model of eating and make wise choices that are also enjoyable.
