What are you really eating?

Contrary to popular belief, you’re not what you eat, but what you eat is who you are…

Everything we put in and on our bodies has a direct effect on our health and wellbeing. We have to eat to survive and we all want to look, feel, and smell good. But have you ever tried to read the ingredient list on your shampoos, conditioners, other hair products, lotions, cologne, perfumes, etc? They are full of ingredients that have long and difficult to pronounce names. These are NOT things that our bodies are made to consume. The things you put on you skin (which happens to be the largest organ of your body), seep in and go directly into your blood stream. Have you ever wondered why you suffer headaches, body aches, tiredness, etc? Or why the cancer rate is so high now days? I’m no doctor, scientist, nor have I gotten my degree in nutrition yet, but it is alarming throws up red flags. If you’re like me you want to be as healthy and happy as possible. That starts with being informed.

In our world today we don’t get all the vitamins and nutrients we use to get from our diets. Sure we all know we should eat healthy and drink plenty of water… good water. But it’s not always easy to know what the right things really are. Most people are just uninformed.

Times have changed and due to the rise in demand for food across the board producers have had to resort to using a lethal cocktail of pesticides to control disease and insect attack.

Great news for their pockets perhaps, but not good news for your health. This is why you need to be informed of the advantages of organic food.
I bet you didn’t know that if you consumed an average apple you would be eating over 30 pesticides, even after you have washed it. So even if you’re juicing, watching fat and calorie intake you are still not getting the full benefit, unless it’s organic food you and your family are consuming.

The quality of food has definitely declined since the 2nd world war. For example, the levels of vitamin C in today’s fruit bear no resemblance to the levels found in wartime fruit.
Organic food is known to contain 50% more nutrients, minerals and vitamins than produce that has been intensively farmed.
You have to eat more fruit and vegetables (raw foods) now days to make up the deficiency, but unfortunately that means eating more chemicals, more detrimental affects on your health by eating something that should be good for you!
That’s not even taking into account the cocktail of anti-biotics and hormones that cattle and poultry are force- fed.

What do you think happens to those chemicals when the animal dies? It’s digested and stored in human bodies. Have you seen pictures of animals in extremely cramped conditions in battery farms?

It makes no sense to think that any animal kept in these conditions is healthy and produces high quality food.

I urge you to look into starting you and your family on an organic diet. It’s a start towards the health you deserve, and you are worth it!

There are many natural ways to heal, by eating and doing things that support the body’s natural healing and protective abilities you can be sure to live a very long healthy and happy life.
