People. It’s all about the FOOD!
Hello out there.
This isn’t what I had planned to post but recently I’ve had a lot of requests that I find, well, unreasonable. I regularly have people ask me about supplements for this or that; what minerals or vitamins should I take; is this herb good for such and such.What people expect simply by adding something to their existing poor diets is quite remarkable.
It’s very difficult to give a simple answer to many questions because then, when the problem at hand doesn’t go away after taking a vitamin or supplement for a few days, something is wrong. Either me, or the information or the supplement itself or the way they are taking it – or something. People want a ‘one pill’ cure for everything. Even though it may have taken years for their body to become unbalanced or dis-eased, people want the problem fixed now!
Thirty plus years of poisoning their bodies with processed foods, a high intake of sugars and preservatives and people expect a clean bill of health in a few days. Heaven forbid if I suggest something as drastic as a diet change, say, give up that two liter of pop every day or ease off the McYukky’s. I’m must be a demon. A blasphemer!
“That’s crazy! Give up my morning double-double and donuts? You must be mad! Surely there’s a simple pill or vitamin that can fix things. How about Apple cider vinegar – I hear that’s good? Cat’s Claw? St. Johns Wart? Acai seems to fix everything. What if I take all of those together? And Noni juice too – will my diabetes go away? Will my Crohns get better? Will I be able to sleep at night? Will my joints stop hurting? Will Tumeric cure cancer? I’m taking Hoodia, why can’t I lose weight?”
As odd as all of that may sound, I’m not making it up. I actually go through these types of conversations regularly. Education is an ongoing, one step, one person at a time, repetitive, and quite often frustrating, process.
STOP THE MADNESS! People! You’ve all heard it before – you are what you eat. What you put in your body…and mind…will reflect in your body and mind.
So – rather that do a ‘Health 101‘ class, I thought I’d share a link and let you see the power of positive thinking and good food and just what can be accomplished when proper steps are taken. The results are truly amazing. So I’ll end here. Take a few minutes and watch this. Hopefully, it will open a few minds.
Until next time;
