Health can seem so complicated I know. But the truth is our bodies are so amazing & we don’t even realize how many functions rely on millions & millions of components that we take for granted for sure. But the moment one of those tiny little components stops working we realize just how fragile health really is. It is so true… because I remember when I had my vertigo.. OMG that was the worst I ever had…. I will have to tell you about that one day. For sure it will be a blog or video but anyway it is amazing how from one moment to the next you turn over in bed & your whole world is upside down literally! Suddenly I was studying all the functions of the brain & ear and I realized how one tiny shift in a vertebra, or one component of the inner ear moves & life can be a total nightmare.
I am a person that never takes my health for granted… or so I thought I was that person. But that ailment taught me that I never really appreciated being able to stand upright or lay or roll over in bed or bend my head up or down. I didn’t mean to take that for granted but I realized I had & likely that was the case since ever, as I never had vertigo before.
When we get a health issue it can have many effects on us, but it depends how serious it is. The more serious it is the more it wakes people up & the more willing they are to change. For example, often after a heart attack or stroke many people final stop smoking. After being diagnosed with cancer is another big news that changes peoples lifestyle quite fast. When they are small health issues & we resolve them we still have a certain respect for that function of our body we used to take for granted. That is good because actually we should wake up every morning & thank our body for all it does & how it works to keeps us working even if we have issues…. in one moment it can be so much worse I promise! LOL
So… I was in a health clinic the other day with Lloyd waiting for some paperwork & a doctor came out to speak with his patient to go over their upper GI Endoscopy results. It was a strange set up so we were kind of forced into overhearing their conversation.
I could not believe my ears… he told her he cut out 18 polyps or tumors as he was not sure until the lab studies them but he felt they were benign polyps. Then he said there are more there I could not get out. He asked her how old she was & she said 43. Then she asked if stress could do this to her stomach or if diet could cause it or fix it. The doctor said stress is always a factor on our health…. wow now I was impressed & smiled & said to Lloyd – “Guess they are starting to get it.” Then the doc went on to say the DIET or nutrition has nothing to do with her stomach or the fixing of this problem.
He even told her that she could expect some blood in her stool from all the polyps he removed & maybe an easy dinner but by tomorrow she could eat whatever she wants.
I almost had to ask for a sick bag like they have on the airplanes. OMG did I really hear him say this? Honestly you guys… this stuff kills me because I know how many people trust their doctors & take their word as GOLD. I wanted to go over to her & say… Please eat fruit, eat 100% vegan, no alcohol, no gluten or grains for a while & watch what will happen. And then I wanted to say… please just listen to my podcast so you can learn the truths… OMG it is so hard to hear what doctors advise their patients when it comes to lifestyle & diet or nutrition.
They don’t take one class in nutrition nor do they learn anything about healing or curing diseases with a clean organic vegan, high raw diet, yet they tell them diet has no effect on their disease. They should be saying your diet is causing you your disease.. OMG that night I felt bad… I had a pit in my stomach thinking about what the woman was having for dinner that night. All she had been thru & she could not even use that day as a wake up call to eat plant based or even to make any changes in her diet.
This is so sad.
But it is WHY I do the work I do… I have to educate the masses about the truths & the lies. I have to help change the world, I have to help people heal & show them how they can feel better. I really want to help everyone & it is so hard living in today’s world that is filled with so many sick people. But the hardest thing is to see a person that is given WRONG advice & watch them follow their doctors orders to take numerous prescription meds that are driving their disease deeper & suppressing their body’s natural way of dealing with disease. This is so dangerous yet the patient follows their doctors instructions… soon it will be an even sadder story for me… UGH.. it is hard to want to help everyone but I won’t stop trying.
So the moral of this story is don’t blindly follow advice about your health without researching other options. Don’t take medications without reading the side effects. Finally don’t ever think your diet as no effect on your health. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT… I promise. Some get away for a lifetime of eating poorly.. but I know they could have been even better on a healthy diet. Times are long gone where we will be able to eat poorly & live a long life. So PLEASE know it does matter what you eat.
Always remember .. knowledge is power – health is freedom!
I love you all..
If you guys know anyone that needs to hear the truths & lies send them to my podcast; if you know anyone sick or even just people wanting to learn how to really get well or feel their best, send them to my podcast.
