Common diseases, such as diabetes, threaten our quality of life and even kill us. So why aren’t we fighting back? Most of us know that our diet greatly affects whether or not our body functions well. Change is never easy, but the benefits are so incredibly
Modern times call for modern warriors: those who are willing to seek the truth and live the truth. Truth: You hold great power over your own health. Truth: When you feel empowered to make healthier choices, you help make the world a healthier place.
Remember a time when diabetes wasn’t a common theme of childhood. Our bodies need to be nourished with foods that are intended to keep us healthy. When you enter a mainstream grocery store, there are NOT a lot of real food options. Instead, there are” food substances.” The enormous list of ingredients, along with the added corn syrup and sugar in nearly all processed foods, is unfortunate. Food is meant to be healing, but the wrong kind of food can be harmful.
Live with food wisdom. Examine your diet. How much of it is made up of fresh living foods that are feeding the needs of your body at a cellular level? How much sugar are you consuming on average each day? Read the labels on the food you buy. Just because something says, “All Natural,” “Healthy,” or” Good for You,” doesn’t mean it is. If a food product has a long list of ingredients that you can’t pronounce, put it back on the shelf. It doesn’t belong in your body.
Cleanse and Nourish your body regularly with foods that will help you heal and promote good health. Not all cleanses are created equally. Natural raw juices can be high in sugar. Make sure you are choosing a low glycemic cleanse that will help regulate your blood sugar rather than spike it.
Between Cleanses, choose a disease fighting diet. A disease fighting diet simply means one that is going to support the overall functioning of your body, promoting health at every level. Raw juices, raw foods, whole foods and nutritional supplements are your very best friends.
If diabetes runs in your family and you want to give yourself the best chance at good health, start by changing your diet. If it is true, you are what you eat, then choose to eat what is alive and vibrant!
