It is near impossible to eat the required daily amounts of necessary vitamins, minerals and all that our bodies require for optimal performance in any one given day. Optimal performance means waking up in the morning fuelled with ample energy to take on every day with clear thoughts for managing our challenges effectively. A strong musculoskeletal system for good posture and circulation, as well as a clear communication system between the body and the mind.
We would need boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables picked fresh from our own backyard gardens on a daily basis. We would have had to start this diet plan when we were very young to avoid any free radical damage that happens over time as we are exposed to the elements of too much smog, too much smoke, too much chemical from cleaners, air fresheners, second hand smoke, dirty engines, paints, solvents, nail polish, preservatives and the list can go on. As the body is exposed, the damage starts and in most cases the problem begins very small inside the body and then by the time we feel or see the symptoms, the problem has grown to a point that the body itself can not heal on its own and requires support for the healing system to function and repair the damage. The human body is an amazing biological operating system. It will continue to function to the best of its ability, taking whatever resources that it needs from anywhere in the body and this results in system problems and difficulty targeting the cause, because ultimately if we do not give our body the tools it needs to operate in its ideal form, it will eventually begin to break down. There is no alternative. The cells in a human body are always regenerating or degenerating. It is imperative that we give our body the nutrition it needs, not only for maintaining a healthy body but also for growth and development of healthy new cells. The cells are the building blocks for the whole body. Healthy cells make healthy organs and from that we get healthy systems and ultimately an entire healthy body. We will not have a healthy body without healthy cells and we will not get healthy cells unless we are feeding our body with healthy cell food. Not food that is too sweet, or too salty, or too greasy, or too patsy, or too big.
What is food…?
Food is one of the components of fuel from which the human body gets the vitamins, minerals and nutrients it needs for life, for healing, for growth and for protection.
Many people grew up thinking that when it came out of a box a bag or a can, they were getting the good stuff…aarrggghhh In most cases, if it is processed, there is not much if anything left in it for the human biological system’s needs. It is filler and more often than not, not only do we not get any nutritional value from it but it does give the body more foreign substance to deal with, (hmm there seems to be no use for this, lets store it…) and more stress on the system. Years and years ago, it was common place for people to grow their own food, fruits and vegetables in a garden and buy meat from the local butcher. At this time people are still working for their food. As time goes on, people are looking for shortcuts and fast foods because there is no time to prepare and with little or no education with regards to the relationship between nutrition and the human body, they end up feeding it stuff that contains little or no nutritional content. After living most of, or even part of a lifetime without any nutritional support, the body systems fail to heal and the results are clear everywhere around us. We now have an aging population with more than a few health challenges and they are expecting the doctors and health care people to fix the sickness that has been caused by an ongoing nutritional deficit in the diet. If we want our body to work optimally, it is our responsibility to understand how it works and take care of it to the best of our ability.
With the knowledge that our bodies have specific nutritional requirements and the ability to research and ensure that we are taking care of what is most important first- CELL FOOD- Healthy cells make healthy organs make healthy systems make healthy amazing body, we can live a long active life experience instead of one that is stricken with sickness or disease of the mind and body.
