Will eat for food (Photo credit: altemark)
I’m on my third career in this life (holistic practitioner), and my last career played a major role in my decision to begin this one. You see I was a Personal Chef for about ten years! It was really a lot of fun! I prepared meals for people’s evening dinners, did private dinner parties, cooking classes, cooking demos, even team-building exercises for corporations – anything with food.
Team building BBQ for a large corporation.
I cooked for any type of diet including Macrobiotic, Vegan, and the Standard American Diet (SAD). I even had a lot of clients that said “I don’t care, as long as it tastes good!” The last one got me thinking! Does food affect health?
YES! A million times YES! We were designed to get what our bodies need to survive, from our environment and FOOD. Unfortunately the processed, genetically modified, toxin laden stuff they are selling to us shouldn’t even be called food! It’s just a bunch of chemicals with trace amounts of food that have been processed to death! Just pick up a box at the supermarket and start reading.
Reads like the chemistry set I had as a kid!
It’s really sad, and very dangerous to our health, but few make the connection between what they eat, and the health problems that they are suffering from.
We have many clients that come into our offices suffering from a variety of symptoms, and once we start doing our intake, we discover their poor eating habits. When we explain that their diet has some major problems, some are confused. They think if the food companies are “allowed” to sell it it must be good for us! After all we have the FDA! And unfortunately many of those clients actually refuse to change their food habits!
Our bodies’ integrity are being compromised by the food that we consume. Our digestive systems are being destroyed, unable to break down the foreign ingredients. You’ve heard the phrase “you are what you eat”, well that’s not really accurate anymore. “You are what you digest!” is much more to the point! If you can’t digest the food you eat, then you can’t get the nutrients form the food (even if they were there!). And this results in chronic illness.
This crap that we are consuming (in place of real food) is at the root of ALL chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, just to name a few of the major ones. These are environmental diseases for the most part, not caused by the usual pathogens or genetics. They are caused by inflammation, actually cellular inflammation to be exact, and there are three main causes of cellular inflammation – bad fats, sugar, and toxins! All of which we get from the “foods” we are eating! There was an interesting article on NaturalNews this morning – “Eighty percent of the packaged foods on our grocers shelves are banned in other countries” you can get the full article at:
We need to educate the general population on the need to eat well! So to improve your health, start eating real, God-made-food, not the man made crap. And unless you grow and raise your own food with organic methods, you will definitely need some quality supplementation. That will go a long way to eliminating those nasty symptoms! Also you will start to normalize your weight!
Add in some exercise and a spiritual component, and before long you won’t need any medicine at all!
To Your Health!
