Disease and sickness are traumatic to not only a person’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational health, but to their families, friends and communities. Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, kidney disease, autoimmune disease, depression, anxiety and obesity are serious (life and death) sicknesses and diseases that are devastating our families, friends and communities.
Did you know that the top killers in America are diet-related disease and sickness? This means that the mass majority of sickness and disease are preventable, treatable and reversible with diet.
Our diets are extremely important. What we eat, how we eat, where we eat and why we eat are questions that are interconnected, interrelated and interdependent on all things. Not only does what we eat affect the soil, water, air, creatures and all of nature, but it also determines if we can live a basic normal life. Yes, diets determine if we can sleep, poop, walk, move, have sex, think and feel normally.
Unfortunately, there is now so much sickness and disease that it appears we have allowed sickness and disease to be part of our normal life. Today, millions of people are needlessly suffering in their daily lives and with basic functions.
Have you personally experienced or witnessed the consequences of a person dealing with a sickness or disease and how their present and future life is permanently altered by it?
Take for instance, a horrible disease like prostate cancer. Treatment of prostate cancer can leave men impotent, incontinent and without testosterone (testosterone controls and affects a number of things in a daily life including sleep). This list does not include the numerous effects on a man’s mental, emotional and relational health.
Yes, disease and sickness is scary. So… why does it seem like we normalize sickness and disease, rather than do all we can to stop it from happening in the first place?
88% of Americans have some form of diet-related disease s as do sickness. There is nothing normal living with this much abnormal sickness and disease. We must change the way we are thinking about our health because it is a matter of life and death.
We don’t have to live in fear waiting for our bodies to betray us as we sabotage our bodies natural design to prevent, treat and fight disease and sickness. We have to stop asking the questions “What sounds good? and “What do I feel like eating?” We have to start asking “What do I need to eat to prevent, fight and reverse disease and sickness?”
