INSPIRE weight loss by RESEARCHING your genetic HISTORY
We eat too much, too often and without effort or thought.
Our lifestyle allows us to eat what we like and whenever we want.
BUT HOW DOES THIS EFFECT OUR BODY?
and what strain does it put on our internal organs?
HOW DOES STRESS PLAY WITH OUR EMOTIONS TODAY?
and do we take short cuts like juicing when we should be chewing our food?
Life is full of CONTRADICTIONS
Have you ever sighed in puzzlement when you read the warning messages of modern medicines; like the possible side effects of a simple headache pill being nausea, headache or worse!
We know the companies are covering themselves against a lawsuit butWHY ARE SO MANY OF US ALLERGIC TO WHAT WE CONSUME TODAY?and more importantly
HOW CAN WE HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO KNOW WE ARE NOURISHING OUR BODIES & MAINTAINING EXCELLENT HEALTH?
Let’s go back in time;
A century ago to 1918 when our Ancestors were living in local communities,where their food was hard earned and ORGANIC. Local farmers worked hard to plough the land, growing vegetables and fruits and raising cattle and livestock. Fishermen would caste out their nets to collect fish and local markets were open for trade. Potters & Bakers & Candlestick makers among the farmers and fishermen traded at the markets.
WHAT OUR ANCESTORS ATE WAS SEASONAL & ORGANIC
It was dependent on weather and availability.
Communities came together at HARVEST TIME to help reap in the hay for cattle fodder for long winters and people celebrated & feasted as food was abundant. But they knew WINTER WAS COMING and so they fattened themselves up to survive the harsher months ahead.
TODAY … is it possible that we CELEBRATE the joys of HARVEST TIME everyday? Is it time to stop and consider what this is doing to our body?
Let’s go back in time again;
Half a century ago to 1968 when our Ancestors had seen two World Wars in the first half of the century, that means that they had suffered and starved.Now scientists began introducing synthetic foods that our bodies do not understand or know how to digest but which have a very long shelf life in theSupermarkets. FOODBECAMEPROCESSEDANDARTIFICIAL.
But our Ancestors were delighted with the abundance of new and exciting consumables and in schools were educated to follow the the nutritional advice of the food prism (which we now know to be upside down) where starch and carbohydrates are most important with tiny amounts of protein and fats at the top of the prism. This encouraged sales of the highly refined and processed carbohydrate and sugary foods available at that time.
Today we have turned that prism around for better health.
WATER is essential for life
Good Fats and Protein which build strong muscles & heart & brain health are most important, Vegetables and Fruits give us vitamins and antioxidants with smaller amounts of Carbohydrates to give us instant energy to move on and get going!
We now know that protiens help us endure the day and stay alert while carbohydrates offer a quick burst of energy but then make us sleepy.
We understand there are good fats such as olive oil and butter that nourish us and bad fats such as corn oil that harden our arteries.
We are blessed to have so much more information TODAY!
WE are LEARNING today that if we want to live a longer and healthier life we can… it is our choice today that will effect how we feel tomorrow.
In our life today, we are warned about hormones in our meat and dairy,lactose in milk and cream, gluten in grains and lectins in fruit and vegetables.Genetically modified foods and pesticides are poisoning our food supply.
I would like to recommend you watch an interview on utube with Dr. Steven Gundry about the topic of lectins in our fruits and vegetables if you would like to be enlightened further.
Have you ever considered why Italians remove the skin and pips of tomatoes? the answer is poisonous lectins or we why we need to cook thoroughly our beans before we eat them? again the answer is lectins!
Our Ancestors realized these foods were poisonous but not why …
Dr Gundry was a heart surgeon who gave up his profession to study the effects of bacteria in the gut. As a surgeon he also noticed that seeds were collecting in the ‘villi’ in our intestines which should be clear to draw nutrients from our food to the blood stream, when he discovered the truth about lectins and how they clog our system he decided to share this information in his books and interviews.
INFORMATION WHICH WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND HEALTH.
SO WHAT CAN WE DO TODAY?
We should choose to eat SEASONAL and ORGANIC
Well, it is late September so apples and pears are about to ripen and Avocado’s are already falling from the trees.
Next month we can enjoy roasted vegetables as the temperatures cool.
As a Christian I am grateful for the delicious produce that has been provided naturally. I am also blessed with a wonderful husband ‘Otto Kummer’ and mother ‘Inge Bartlett’ who are both amazing chefs and have always taken time to carefully prepare fresh and delicious meals for me.
