Your body is your temple ... NO JOKE!
It seriously is a case of what you put into it you get out of it. So much of society is addicted to coffee, alcohol, sugar, junk food ... never mind the big stuff like drugs.
We have almost conditioned ourselves to function at this lowly level and accept not feeling good as just 'normal'. So WRONG!
Lets make a list of things we live with and accept as 'normal'
Body aches & pains
Uneven skin tones
Digestive issues (heartburn, tummy gurgles, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation)
Lack of energy and fatigue
Hair is lacking luster/Nails are brittle and split
Bad oral health
Constantly being unwell
Wounds that do not heal effectively
Low mental clarity (ie brain-fog, depression, anxiety)
That is quite a list, just off the top of my head!
I find it so sad that more people don't find the importance of eating correctly a higher priority. Making excuses as to why they can't do it this way or do it that way. It is all in the mindset, if you want it bad enough you just do it.
If you have been reading my blogs then you would have some idea of the journey I have been on already, the almost insanely unbelievable transformation that I went through when I started really pulling apart what I ate.
It is a fact that a lot of the ailments you are suffering are no doubt caused by an intolerance to one food or another. Or perhaps eating certain food groups together so that the stomach cannot digest it efficiently to maximise what it is you are feeding it. There are so many benefits to understanding gut health, to eating correctly. It is an interesting thing I find that even though people hear and know these things a lot of the time they do not want to 'give up' the foods they love and crave.
TRUST ME ... the cravings dissipate and the rewards of better health and higher quality of living by far out-way having to go without some comfort foods.
Paleo is one avenue of gut health, this is kinda what I worked with when I first ventured upon this learning curve. It is amazing how you can still have all the 'yummy' stuff but it shows you how to do with naturally derived produce rather than synthetic and highly processed foods that are like poison to your body. The thing is, until you actually detox your body from all of that stuff you do not even have the slightest idea of just how amazing you can feel. That the dry lifeless looking skin is not normal for you, the running out of energy and 'NEEDING' a caffeine or sugar hit does not happen anymore. You suddenly are thinking clearly every day and your health improves to the point you see everyone else around you unwell but you are not picking up the bugs. It's brilliant! Even weight ... it is no longer a battle, it is not something you even have to TRY to battle constantly anymore.
Your body just works.
It's perfect really, I urge everyone to consider going back to basics. Feed yourself right and discover how the bodies innate ability to heal itself just takes over given the right conditions and leaves you looking and feeling amazing.
