What We Eat
Why are we sick? How do we become well and stay that way? It’s important to ask ourselves these questions. We don’t live with poor health because of bad luck, because of coming into contact with bad germs, or because we have bad genes. We get sick due to poor choices day after day, regarding what we eat, how we move and what we think about. This is what determines if we are well or sick.
Our body needs protein, complex carbohydrates, essential fatty acids and a combination of vitamins and minerals to function the way it was always designed to. There are easy things that everyone can do comfortably to move their bodies towards a better state of health.
- Essential fatty acids that assist your brain in functioning properly, strengthen your nervous system and help keep your joints in good condition are important – start each day with a serve of HIGH QUALITY fish oil.
- Eat a piece of raw fresh fruit or vegetable FIRST at every meal or snack.
- Humans are the only mammals that drink the milk of another animal. Interestingly we are the only species (other than animals in captivity) that develop osteoporosis and other ‘lifestyle diseases’. Decrease your dairy intake that increases inflammation in the body; and increase your calcium intake through the consumption of fresh green leafy vegetables.
- A good rule of thumb is that if it has a label on it, it has been more processed than something you get from the green grocer or butcher. Eat fresh food where ever possible. Aim for more than half of your diet to be raw fruits and vegetables.
- Eat more carbohydrates that come from raw or lightly steamed fruits and vegetables, and less that come from wheat or grains.
- A HIGH QUALITY multivitamin will hep ensure your body gets everything that it needs.

Nutrition, is the types and quality of food that we eat,
it is also a fundamental requirement for internal HEALTH.
It is the “internal health” which we express externally, and see from day to day in how we feel.
But feeling well does not mean we are well!
Wellness is not a state of mind it is a state of being.
More and more research is pointing to the fact that
if you don’t care about the symbiotic relationships
we have with other organisms in our large intestines we will become very ill.
Such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, lung problems, bowel disorders and skin problems.
So the correct food not only feeds us, but also feeds
these other symbiotic organisms to keep us healthy.
