“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease” - Thomas A Edison
Someday I hope this will be true. We are from it living here in America. We live for our medications. We eat like pigs, drink like alcohol isn’t poison to the body, and consume things without a thought of where it came from or how it is processed. We live in a GMO-infested world with little to fear of our future of this lifestyle. I am at a point in my life where I eat to help my heart and body last longer with little pain in the future. I am trying to eat things in its most raw form, I’m trying to cut out dairy wherever I can, meat is gone but I am trying to fit in more plant-based protein to make sure my workouts don’t suffer.
I have a friend who used to tell me that the way to help cure cancer is by first and foremost, going to a plant based diet along with other things…this comment stuck in my head because I find myself thinking about it all the time. The biggest thing I got from this is….if going plant based is a way to help rid your body of cancer…why not start now? Why wait till I am completely broken in order to fix myself? Going plant based while healthy should only help maintain my health.
I believe the best way to prevent an unhealthy, short life is going plant based (to an extent) and a variety of exercise to help every part of your body. I believe in variety because doing anything in excess causes pain or injury…I believe that we need to alternate everything in order to have the best results.
I bought a Nutribullet of my own today and couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to try some fantastic smoothies. I feel that rather than going to the doctor for every little thing, we need to look at who we are and what we do and how we eat. Literally write it down. Pay attention, even to your emotional states and everything in between. One big thing we forget to look at is our alcohol consumption. Remember that you are not invincible and you have the ability to enjoy food for what is truly is…and life for what it truly is:) you don’t always have to mask it with unhealthy relationships, sugar, salt, and alcohol or pills.
