In the last couple of years I have been eating mainly organic food. I do my very best to get the freshest organic food and when organic is not possible local food. There has been enough published to indicate that organic is much better for our health, more nutrition dense. Well lately this has been a point that I have been pondering. Now I do believe we must eat food that is not grown with chemicals. I believe that as society we must begin to value our health, our bodies and our future generations and at a most basic level this comes from the food we eat each and every day.
In Paul Chek’s book ‘You are what you Eat” he indicates: Dr. Virginia Worthington reviewed 1230 published comparisons between organically grown and conventionally grown crops. The results of her survey indicated that organic crops had higher nutrient levels and lower levels of toxicity in 56% of the comparisons. So this is a good thing right? This is the reason to eat organic, right? Better quality food. So organic food it will be.
Yes, but this is what I have been pondering. If organic food has higher nutrient levels and lower levels of toxicity in 56% of the comparisons and we are meant to eat organc what are we still missing from the food in the sense of important nutrition? What nutrients even with organic are our bodies still needing for our good health. Is this the reason that adding a good supplemental Multi Vitamin important?
And over the past few months I have been in touch with many, many wellness practitioners inviting them to take a look at the Symmetry products for their clients, their families, themselves and their business and most tell me the don’t believe in, support or advise their clients to take supplements and there have been a number of practitioners who actually have stated it is unethical to advise their clients on supplementation. They state that food is what they advise their clients on as this is all that is necessary for proper health. I have had hands on practitioners inform me that the modality they use allows the body to heal itself? No need to anything else.
So if we want our bodies to heal and be well, healthy, vibrant and only 56 % of the 1230 published comparisons that Dr. Worthington reviewed had higher levels of nutrition and lower levels of toxicity how is this a basis for good health without adding extra nutrition to our daily eating programs?
I have heard for years that Doctors get no nutrition training. Then we go to the wellness practitioners, dietitians, hands on therapists and none of them can agree on what is the best for our good health. So how do you or I know what is best for us? Who do we get our advice from? How do we decide what is the best course of action for good health for the long term of our life? How do we change the Sickness System we are presently living in to a Wellness System where we feel good, and live long healthy lives and our future generations out live us with good health? Maybe we already know what we need to do for a better healthier life?
We must begin a personal Wellness Revolution. We must begin as individuals to learn what is in our best interest not that of big business, who are marketing to us in very deceptive ways. Start asking what is more beneficial for your health and not just believing what is in the media or what your friends and associates are doing. Maybe start to be a contrarian when it comes to your health, your wellness and your life. Look at what the sick people are doing and do the opposite.
For me I will continue to eat organic. I will continue to take my supplements, exercise, drink water, get good sleep, work on a positive thought process daily, connect with friends to enjoy community and also look at other ways I can continue to improve how I feel daily. How about you?
