“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”
If this is true, then why are we told our health complaints have unknown causes?
Why are we told that there’s nothing we can do bar maybe take some medication as tablets or ointments?
If every action truly has an equal and opposite reaction.
How long will it be before regular doctors will look at the bigger picture, instead of primarily focusing on symptom management?
How long until those those who look to the bigger picture will no longer be the exception, but the rule?
How long will it be before we look at our own environment and diet, and connect those dots to our health?
How long do we need to eat more processed, heavily farmed nutritionally depleted foods? Fortifying more and more foods, with synthetic vitamins with poor bioavailability, because of the nutrients that are being lost because of the intense farming and processing methods.
How long until we see that we are what we eat and what our societies are eating in abundance is pesticide rich foods, heavily processed starches that hit the body like refined sugar, strain our digestive systems, feed microbes like Candida that cause systemic yeast overgrowth and illness?
The animals the vast majority of us eat are treated poorly, fed pesticide saturated foods, many are given antibiotics, vaccines, hormones, steroids etc. which all accumulate in their bodies. Then we consume their bodies and bodily fluids and expect to have no side effects?
Animals’ meat can be such an amazing nutritional source, but it can be equally toxic if the animals are treated poorly. In the news, there have been stories of animals being fed skittles to fatten them up! How could that huge amount of sugar and artificial colourants have a positive effect on the animals health or those who eat them? That’s not including the tremendous strain on natural resources used to produce the excessive quantities of animal protein consumed internationally on a daily basis. Many fed an excess of genetically modified soya and corn which have been studied for their ability to survive increased volumes of pesticide exposure, but not for their long term impact on our health – and have been associated with an increased risk of allergy.
Fish can be a great nutritional source, but the further up the food chain you go the higher the risk the food for mercury and other pollutants. Molluscs can be so controversial nutritionally because they can be used to clean water supplies because they ingest the pollutants. (Mushrooms can also have this pollutant removing quality.)
Even our fruit and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides and preservatives, on the surface level we can wash off some of the excess, but if a plant is grown with pesticide use it will be a part of the plant, not use on the surface. Lots of fruit and vegetables are waxed for freshness, probably not coincidentally these waxes can contain increasingly common allergens like soya and corn.
Refined foods can be so difficult to eliminate because they are so ingrained in our societies and practical! But when we eat grains and sugars in their refined forms they increase our risk of diabetes and fatty liver disease.
Whole grains, legumes and seeds can be so nutritious, especially when soaked to reduce and remove anti-nutrients like lectins and saponin. Cooked and cold or reheated whole grains and legumes can be even better for us because they provide resistant starches that acts as a prebiotic feeding helpful microbes.
We were plunged into this journey of the way our food and environment affects our health from having children with health challenges. Because our children are our canaries in the coal mines of our lives and environments.
There is a reason we currently have the most chronically ill and unhealthy generation of children (and adults), and it’s not just “increased diagnosis” it’s a steady decline in our quality of life from stress, diet and environment.
We are we eat, and what our food eats:
