The journey to health is about clearing out all of the toxic garbage in your life, on several different levels. It is a mind, body, spirit approach to healing your body and transforming your health and life.
With food, it means clearing out all of the man made foods and going back to the way our ancestors did things….we’re kicking it old school, cooking like our great grandmothers did, using all whole, fresh ingredients.
It is about transitioning to healthier way of eating by eating whole, real, nutrient rich foods. This means incorporating fresh fruits and veggies, high quality fats, soaked or sprouted whole grains (if you can tolerate them), seeds and nuts, pasture raised meat, poultry, wild caught seafood and whole, raw dairy.
It’s getting rid of the highly processed “junk” from your diet and rediscovering the amazing taste of real food. It is about giving your body the nutrients that it needs to repair itself, to increase energy and to improve mood. This is not a diet, but a new way of eating that is more satisfying and delicious than you can imagine!
Although we will be looking at changing the food we eat, we also have to look at the other toxic products that are being used in your home everyday. If you have never read the list of ingredients on the back of your household cleaners or personal care products, it is time to start doing that! Many of the chemicals used in the products we use everyday are highly toxic and can ultimately cause health issues.
It is time to become an informed consumer, so that you can make the best product choices for the health of yourself and your family! There are simple solutions to help you clear out the toxic products in your home to help protect the health of you and those you care about.
Finally, it is about keeping yourself healthy naturally. We’ve lost site of how to simply and naturally maintain our bodies and so we must focus on stress management, quality sleep, regular exercise, natural remedies, and learning how to utilize our bodies the was they were intended to be used.
We are all on a journey. Here’s to taking the first step toward taking the journey to health! I hope you’ll join me!
