Prevention or preventive health care is always a good investment, in time as well as money. Once you fall ill, it takes much more time and costs much more money to acquire vibrant health again.
Furthermore, every time you lose your health, the road to recovery gets longer and rougher, demanding a growing investment for diminishing returns. By investing in your immunity now, you insure your future health and guard your life at minimum cost.
The Foundations of Wellness – The health of your body is largely tied into the health of your gut. Beneficial bacteria in your gut can help to boost the immune system, prevent allergic inflammation and food allergies, clear up eczema in children and heal the intestines from a variety of ailments. However, if you are eating as many sugars as the typical American (about 175 pounds per year) then you are feeding the “bad” bacteria, which are more likely to cause disease than promote health. You should rather promote the “good” bacteria that helps protect you from disease. Exposure to chemicals will also contribute to this disruption in your gut microflora, and over time the imbalance will lead to illness.
Simple Solutions to Get Started
Refined products that contain sugar, salt, saturated fats, caffeine, nicotine and alcohol are extremely detrimental to the human being. Realize that excessive intake of animal proteins (especially red meats) places a tremendous burden on the digestive system. Stay away from low-vitality foods, overcooked or processed foods, fried foods, junk foods, etc.
Our bodies need live foods for optimal vitality – fresh fruits, raw vegetables and whole grains. These foods contain the necessary enzymes to assist in proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients, as well as important fibers to expedite intestinal transit time. The old saying, “you are what you eat,” is a fundamental truth.
In addition, it is important to know your Vitamin-Mineral deficiency (Spectracell) status simply because nutritional deficiencies are stepping stones to disease.
Every person should have a customized nutritional and supplementation regimen to address their specific health, lifestyle and genetic (family history) challenges.
