I know, I know, the title of this post probably made you run fast in the other direction when you saw it! But this topic so important. You're probably all like, "Susan, would you please stop preaching about healthy eating! GEEZ!" And my answer to that is a most emphatic uh, "NO!" I once was blind and now I see.
We've heard that there are two types of folks in the world:
Many say we fit into one of these categories! If you haven't thrown your phone or computer down by now in anger, hear me out!
So many of us are sick, tired, overworked, stressed out, on medications, seeing one doctor after the other who can't seem to find out what's wrong with us - or they are trying to mask it with medicine, when there may be a solution. A simple solution, might I add.
Could it be that what we're eating is the very thing making us sick? The things we're putting in our bodies that just might be what is making us feel the way we are feeling? (Lethargic, no energy, pain in our joints, headaches, etc)
It's now been proven that there is a link to what we're eating and how we're feeling. Our bodies are trying to tell us something. But many of us aren't listening. Our bodies are starting to respond to what we're putting in them. They are responding with inflammation - which is the undercurrent in all disease processes. Even if you may seem to be pretty healthy, there is a good possibility that the silent undercurrent of inflammation is simmering in your body wreaking havoc.
It has also been proven time and time again that when we change our diets or better said our lifestyles, making changes to what we eat and put in our bodies, we can reverse these illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, digestive disorders, fatigue, depression, and even cancer.
The question then becomes, "What's it worth?"
I know what it's like to have been given a diagnosis and have to make a life-altering decision. Was I going to keep going on the road I was on leading to poor health and possibly cancer? Or was I going to make the change and do whatever it took to get healthy and stay healthy! You can read more about my story HERE.
This Saturday, November 11, 2017, I will be speaking locally at Dothan Nurseries in conjunction with Market at Dothan at the Fall Farmers Market and Food Fair on this very topic but titled "Healing through Healthy Eating." If you live in the area, you should make plans to attend. I know there is a crap load of stuff going on but this is REALLY important and concerns your health and future!
Here are a few things we will be discussing:
We really can get healthy and stay healthy by choosing to put the right things in our bodies. Sometimes, it's a matter of becoming knowledgeable about those things we don't really know that could be keeping us from becoming our best selves and living the healthiest lives possible and to start eating to really LIVE!
