“Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine …”

“Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food” is ancient wisdom that we seem to have forgotten in these modern, high tech times.

In spite of the fact that technology has advanced so phenomenally over the last 100 years, “the human genome is 99.98% the same as it was 40,000 years ago.” This means that we virtually have the same biochemical makeup as the people living in the Stone Age. So, the food our body is designed to eat is basically the same type eaten in ancient times.

What we are feeding our bodies is so far removed from what we were designed to eat that we are suffering for it.

Most of the food on the market is NOT real food. It’s processed chemicals, void of nutrients, that does not provide what we need to sustain health. The result … we in the U.S. are one of the sickest nations in the western world, in spite of supposedly having the best health care system in the world.

We live in a society that expects “a pill for every ill” rather than looking to find the cause of the ailment.

When you drive your car, you put gas in your gas tank. Otherwise, your car wouldn’t run. You take your car in for routine service and maintenance to keep it running and make it last longer.

Your body is just like your car. It needs the proper fuel and maintenance. When it doesn’t get it, it starts to break down and malfunction. You might first start feeling a little tired and low energy. Then it progresses and the symptoms increase and eventually you get sick.

The big difference between your body and your car is that when your car breaks down beyond repair, you can get a new car. But … you can’t get a new body!

It’s a sad state of affairs that we treat our cars better than we treat our bodies.

We eat nutrient deficient, chemically altered food and we wonder why we’re sick.

The best way to be healthy, or to regain your health if you have started losing it, is to give your body the fuel that it needs … the nourishment it was designed to function efficiently on.

Just like some cars require different types of fuel to run efficiently, your body may require different foods. If you have food sensitivities, your body may not tolerate all the healthy foods available on the market. If you want to be healthy you need to eliminate those intolerant foods and eat the healthy foods your body needs.

So, how do you know if some otherwise healthy foods are unhealthy for you?

If you’re feeling less than vibrantly alive and healthy, something’s amiss.

The best way to find out is to get tested.
