Think About Prevention As A Pound of Cure
Nowadays, it seems like everywhere you take a glance at, there is some sort of new pill or medicine that will ‘immediately cure’ your sickness, disease or health issue.
And even though taking a pill to cure what ails you might sound simple, maybe it’s really time to sit down and consider taking a long look at what you’re consuming on a regular basis, or as it might be, not feeding your body. Think about it, are you truly giving your body the nutrients it needs to take care of itself?
When we take a look at what we’ve been eating and the choices we’ve been making in the name of convenience, simplicity, or saving time, you got to ask yourself have they actually been detrimental to your overall health – body, mind and/or spirit?
Our modern day diet mainly consists of excessive consumption of:
- Fried and fatty foods
As a result, diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and some cancers are becoming more and more common as well.
Healthy foods and good nutrition such as the consumption of Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Balsamic Vinegar can not only help keep you fit, but treat disease as well. In addition, you may not even have to go to a health food store.
You can purchase them right at your grocery store, or make a trip to your local farmer’s market. And if you focus on basing a healthy, well-balanced diet on the 14 “Superfoods,” the detrimental effects of these diseases can be slowed, stopped or even reversed.
And when you nourish your body physically with these nutrient-dense foods, your mental capacities increase, and your spiritual wellness is enhanced as well. In addition, since your spiritual health is optimal, it will shine through to the outside, and people will notice you’re happy, calm, and that your stress levels have decreased dramatically.
So look for ways to cut the junk out of your daily eating and replace it with members of the Superfoods group. Your body, mind and spirit will all be healthier as a direct result.
