IT'S A TIME FOR CHANGE
What an amazing time in history. Many see this virus as a curse, yet I see it as an opportunity for self-growth and a paradigm shift in personal health.
This virus, like many other viruses, is killing people at a disproportionate rate who are older. However, it's not because they're older, it's because they have pre-existing conditions with compromised immune systems which typically is assumed comes with old age.
Yes it's true, with age comes the deterioration of one's health, but how much your health deteriorates is mostly contingent upon lifestyle choices. There are 80-year-olds in wheelchairs and there are 80-year-olds running marathons. Which one you become is ultimately up to you.
Of course, there are diseases that are genetic and no amount of diet and great lifestyle choices will stop that train from hitting you. With that said, that's not the case for the vast majority of all humans living on our amazing planet. Lifestyle choices for most of us will dictate our health.
It's time we start to take our health into our hands, and not leave it in the hands of doctors that practice acute medical care, and not preventive care. This is about self-preservation. We must shift how we look at healthcare, and focus on the fundamental reasons as to why we wind up in the doctor's office, to begin with.
It starts with the food we put into our bodies but not all presumed healthy foods are right for everyone. Food is intimate and personal. What's right for one person may not be right for another. Good health is also determined by gut health and a healthy digestive system.
As the world's population grows, with it will come diseases and more viruses. If you live in a first-world country, you are blessed. There are regions of the world where people can barely eat. Yet as Americans we can drive to Whole Foods and buy some of the healthiest foods in the world. We have no excuses to be sick or immune-compromised. As Americans, we have access to the greatest health information, Nutritionists, Trainers, and Naturopaths the world has ever known, yet we are the sickest country on the planet.
WE HAVE NO EXCUSES FOR THIS!!!
COVID-19 is a cautionary tale of a race of humans that are sick mostly due to their lifestyle choices, and a planet sick and tired of being treated with such blatant disrespect.
I promote a whole food plant-based diet which in my opinion is the most effective nutritional protocol for great health, a powerful immune system, and longevity. I am not saying give up everything but I am saying try to make a major shift.
Take your health into your hands, and do not leave it into the hands of the doctors, the pharmaceutical companies, and the insurance companies that just see you as a number. We are intelligent being's that know our own bodies better than anyone, we just need to get to understand them on a different level. Listen to our bodies, become intuitive, and like the good book says, treat your body like a temple.
There will be another pandemic, there will be other diseases, and plagues thrust upon our world, and when that happens, don't you want to be physically ready? If this pandemic wasn't enough to scare you into taking your health seriously, I am not sure what will.
If you truly are ready to take your health into your own hands, start now, waste no more time. In just 14 days, you can start seeing amazing changes to your health, in three months, you'll be a different person.
