In my doctoral class yesterday we were talking about Western drugs, however some questions were also brought up about nutrition. After class, I did a little reading (studying) and found an interesting statement written in 1933 by Dr. Royal Lee (a man I consider to be a genius in nutrition).
Dr. Lee stated (emphasis is mine): “The most common non-vitamin foods are sugar, white four, white rice, and macaroni products. These have become common foods, in fact for the average civilized American individual, they constitute from sixty to ninety per cent of the total food intake. These have become common foods because of commercial reason. They can be stored and shipped because of the fact that they are devitalized and devitaminized. They do not furnish a proper food even for insects or germs and so may be handled commercially with considerable ease and profit. The economic situation here involved has forced foods into general use in the civilized world which, if continued, will mean the destruction of those who consume them. A very great number of interlocking organizations connected with the manufacture and distribution of pernicious and unfit food materials has come into existence. The will do everything in their power to continue to sell their goods.”
This was written in 1933, and it’s only gotten worse. Now we have GMO products, fake sugars (which are worse that the sugar he was talking about), so many environmental toxins to make your head spin, and a government that doesn’t really care.
What are we to do? We have to take our health into our own hands by being selective about the foods we eat. Here are some steps you can take:
- Eliminate processed foods
- Eat organic, and natural foods
- Eliminate the toxins we are exposed to, by once or twice a year doing a detox program like the one I offer
- Limit the amount of medications you’re taking
- Eliminate the use of synthetic vitamins and supplements
- Use a reverse osmosis water purifying system in your house, preferably for your shower as well
- Drink plenty of water
- Exercise at least 30 minutes, three times a week
These are some basic steps for you to start to incorporate into your lifestyle, and will help you in your health goals. For further help, come in for an appointment and we can customize a program for you.
