We go through life sometimes feeling invincible until something happens to us and we get a reality check with life.
Almost 20 years ago I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and a heart murmur. I was told that I was a greater risk for heart disease and would have to take an aspirin a day for the rest of my life to survive. Being young and having felt like I ate right and exercised enough you can imagine the shock I felt when the doctor told me about my “incurable” health condition.
NOPE! That didn’t resonate with me well and so began my journey with dietary and lifestyle adjustments to improve my health.
And so it did! It took me a couple of years but I am happy to say that I no longer have it! Now when I go to the doctor for my checkups, they don’t believe that I ever had it which is why I still have the medical labs from years ago to prove where I’ve come from my journey to a healthier me!
I Know It Sounds Crazy
We aren’t robots. Many of us accept what we are told without taking the time to investigate and examine all options. We may feel it TABOO to question the experts. Isn’t your health, your life worth investigating? If we eat poorly, can we really expect to see healthy results? Think about the choices out there. Sickness, allergies and disease is all too common in today’s society. Food has a powerful effect on your health, mood, self-acceptance and weight loss.
So if you’re trying to juggle it all without a clear understanding… you’re just frustrating yourself even more. Who wants that? The majority of our food supply (both plant and animal) is inundated with disease-promoting carcinogenic chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and/or administered genetically modified growth hormones and antibiotics. We need to learn how to incorporate better food choices in our daily life.
