The other day was my first day back in the gym after about 8 weeks since I was helping out my husband by working with him. Man, did it feel great! Working out is a great stress reliever. Plus, it’s great for your body and all-around health. Since September when I decided to really focus on my health I have gained a deeper understanding and passion for the field. In addition, once you start to feel the change and see the change within your body the more you want to continue the practice.
Now, I see why people are shifting to the wellness and fitness industry especially if you have a desire to help others. This is where I come in. I have a desire to help and educate people. When you do a lot of research within the health, fitness, and wellness industry you realize all of the lies that have been told. At one point I had gotten so deep into the knowledge I was scaring myself because I realized the lies and was confused about what to believe anymore. The medical and pharmaceutical industries are working together to get more money for themselves. Doctors aren’t trained to cure an illness they are trained to treat an illness and pharmaceutical companies make their profits off how many people are on their “medicines.” Don’t get me wrong some medicines are lifesavers but there are some that cause more harm than good. Have you ever read to the side effects of a prescription drug? Yes, the doctor has deemed it better for you to take to the drug to help alleviate an illness; however, research has shown that diseases and illnesses can be reversed and prevented with a proper diet.
How many times have you went to the doctor and has told that we need to start eating better and exercising to avoid taking a drug but the doctor did not explain to you how to do those things or refer you to someone that can teach you how to do those things? It is a small percentage of doctors that would actually prescribe a lifestyle change plan verses a drug plan. Yes. giving a drug might be the easiest solution but it might not be the best solution. Now, I do understand that a person has to make the choice in changing their lifestyle for the better but they also make the choice to take a drug daily as well which some choose not too as well.
What I have found is that prescription drugs only mask an illness but with simple changes, a person can reverse illness and be off prescription drugs and in the long-term save them money.
Dr. Otto Warburg discovered long ago that “No disease, including cancer, can’t exist in an alkaline environment.” Don’t take my word for it; research him and make your own conclusions. In terms of what he is saying we must understand pH levels. The pH scale measures how acidic or basic a substance is. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH of less than 7 is acidic and a pH greater then 7 is alkaline.
Once, we understand where our food lays along the pH scale the more inclined we are to focus on the more alkaline foods to help prevent and/or reverse an illness. Foods that are more alkaline includes fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts. Processed foods, meats, and dairy produced are more acidic. Now, its okay to eat acidic food but you want a very balanced diet with the focus being on alkaline foods.
This is a great image that details what is acidic and what is alkaline. Now, there is much debate about how much fruit a person should eat due to the sugar levels. Your answer with very based upon who you ask. I can just tell you that if it is alkaline I want it in my diet and I want a lot of it because I know the power of eating alkaline foods. It is truly all about balance.
I have been developing a meal and fitness plan that has been helping me in my journey to better health and fitness and I would love to share it with you all once it is complete. I feel that there is no point in becoming skilled in a craft and not share it with others.
