We may, arguably, be living longer, but we are living sicker. We are using drugs to keep us alive for longer and we are sticking stents in our blood vessels, to open up vessels which are clogged, to keep our blood circulating.
Why are so many millions of people in denial about what they are doing to their bodies?
Jill and I were watching Holmes Inspection on TV. Mike Holmes was at a house a young couple had invested their life savings in, and noticed, although cosmetically, the house looked great, the floors were out of level in some places; there were occasional smells from the drains and areas of mould had started to appear. They had been living in the house for several months. When Mike arrived, they found infestation of termites almost everywhere. They were unseen, so out of mind. The house was about to fall down around them. A few months longer and there would have been a catastrophe.
Is this, I wonder, how we kid ourselves about the state of our health. Our skin covers up the failing body and organs, until they break down. We get the warning signs, but we choose to ignore them.
So what are the warning signs? Being overweight. Skin complaints. High blood pressure. Indigestion. Failing eyesight. Memory loss. Thread veins. Varicose veins. Unexpected thinning hair. Acid reflux. Itchy ears. Smarting eyes. Deteriorating nails. Skin spots. Acne. IBS. Constipation. These are all diet related conditions; of which there are so many more.
Why are we in denial that our food is slowly killing us. Margerine is one molecule away from the formation of plastic. Would you eat plastic?
A pig is designed to clean up and will eat anything; but it is designed to cope with anything. We are not. We are finely tuned and need a complex mix of energy to sustain our life. We need vegetables, fruit, grains, beans, seeds and nuts. We DON’T need meat. The only people who will really take you to task to prove you need meat, work for the meat industry.
As we get older, we get sicker as a nation. Haven’t you sat down and asked yourself why so many people are getting sicker, younger and younger? You are what you eat.
When was the last time you clogged up the sink waste with grease that had set. This happens in your colon and intestines, preventing you from going to the toilet to poo. If you are not pooing twice a day on average, you are not eating the right things.
Those warning signs mentioned above are nearly all reversible, with the right diet. Cancer is reversible. Heart disease is reversible. Diabetes is reversible. Our good friend Chantelle is now 5 weeks into her new diet. When she came to us she was on 72 units of insulin a day. Last week, she stopped taking it completely, and her sugar levels are way down.
Are you eating to live, or are you eating to die?
Processed, packeted, canned food is slowly killing us. Sugary drinks are slowly killing us. Our children will be sicker much earlier in life than we older adults, unless we educate them about what food we need to eat to live, and what food will slowly kill them.
FAT FOR LIFE?
It starts with our children. If we overfeed them and feed them the wrong things, we are guilty of abuse.
If you are overweight or obese, you are at high risk of a
lifetime of pain, suffering, disabilities and indignities.
