I hear this on occasion. (from my husband as well, but he is beginning to change his tune.) I hear this from people who eat tons of “crap” and drink a lot of sodas, “I am rarely sick.” They feel they can eat whatever they want and its no big deal because they have been healthy to this point. (Many of them have recently been discovering things changing, rapidly.)
T.o. t.h.i.s. p.o.i.n.t!
Lets compare our health to my favorite thing… a car. You get a new car, you drive the crap out of it, you don’t worry about when you change the oil, you keep putting fuel in it because it won’t go without it, so any old fuel will work. You don’t check fluid levels because the car works just fine, until… Stupid car, broke down and now its gonna cost a bunch to fix it… (When in reality, had it been maintained properly, it most likely wouldn’t have had the issue in the first place.)
Now, back to your body. If you don’t have time to eat right now, when in the future will you have time to repair the damages done now, schedule in a bypass surgery or chemo treatments?
As we age, things slow down, change, and begin to break down. When the right fluids and fuels are provided, our bodies last longer and feel better.
We believe the care and maintenance of our bodies is not so different from the care and maintenance of our vehicles, the better you care for it, the longer it lasts, the better it runs, the more fun you can have with it, and it will look better for a longer period of time. I want my human chassis to look GOOD, feel GOOD, and run GREAT for as long as possible, so I have made the changes to my lifestyle and nutritional intake to assist it.
Its all still common sense, and a matter of “what is important” to you.
- Increase your fruit and vegetable intake
- Eliminate sodas and sugary drinks
- Decrease your intake of refined sugars (flours & processed foods)
- Eliminate anything artificial (flavors, sweeteners, colors)
- Increase your water intake
- Take a look at how you deal with stress and consider a class to help change how you handle it
- Eliminate eating/drinking anything with genetically modified organisms
- Eliminate High Fructose Corn Syrup
- See a chiropractor and/or massage therapist regularly, keep things aligned and working correctly
