Well the results so far are as follows:
People who will eat the cheeseburger no matter what = 0%
People who want both the cheeseburger and optimum health = 14%
People who would rather have optimum health, even if it meant giving up the cheeseburger = 86%
If you want to be healthy what do you need to do? All our lives we have been told generic answers “Eat right and exercise”, “follow the guidelines established using the food pyramid“, “Drink milk it does a body good”
Really ! I guess nobody is making the connection between what we eat and the incidences of cancer, diabetes, digestive disorders, obesity, Alzheimer’s, and a host of other chronic and degenerative health problems. Supposedly as our knowledge increases we should be getting better not worse. I am not anti Drs. and I don’t think we need to eat only lettuce!
The medical community, along with the meat industry, the dairy council and the pharmaceutical industry although in the beginning set out to provide help and find answers, somewhere along the way the priority’s changed and the emphasis became to manage disease not heal it, frankly because there is a lot more money in managing it! Please DON’T misinterpret what I am saying, there are a lot of great physicians and nurses and medical professionals out there, and there are times and places where medical intervention is necessary, but avoiding or reversing chronic health issues is not only possible, it is probable if we support our body and it’s systems the way they were intended to be from the beginning. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 2007. I was told I would need to remove a section of my intestines and go on steroidal drug therapy for the rest of my life! I am not on drugs, and I have not had any surgeries, and I don’t suffer from any symptoms of Crohn’s any longer. Furthermore, I feel better than I have felt in years.
I am not going to go in to details here as I am in the process of writing a book to share my story and perhaps, to inspire others to a changed life. But I would urge you to at least entertain the thought that maybe we have been looking in the wrong directions, and true health was purposed and designed for us to enjoy! This is not some kind of quackery, I am not selling anything. I am saying that answers are only found when we are willing to seek them out and to perform the due diligence necessary.
Most of us won’t even begin to look for answers until we are in crisis ourselves or some one close to us is. Then we turn to find those answers from the same industries that stand to profit if we remain ill. I know this post will probably stir up a lot of controversy…good maybe it will be the genesis of change.
