Investing in your wellness now will save you from investing even more in illness later…
Most people unknowingly subsidize their illness. Pharmaceutical companies, just like any other business owners, want repeat business. It doesn’t make financial sense to them to actually cure you – they want you to have your diseases, and develop more over time so that they can give you something to treat the symptoms.
It’s time to take control of your health and start investing in yourself before it cost you more in the long run.
How will you pay for your health…
The reality is that you have to spend money on your health, one way or another. The choice of where to spend that money, however, is yours: you can pay for Juice Plus+, organic groceries, your gym membership, pay for your yoga studio, your massage therapist, and your naturopath, OR you can pay pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, etc.
But nothing is free. To be truly healthy, you have to spend money. The good news is that you will feel better, look better, live longer, and enjoy life more by choosing to spend your dollars on health, rather than on illness.
Is a raw food diet a healthy option?
70-80% raw is great. 100% raw is not always appropriate, nor practical, nor necessary. Raw grains can be tough for many people who have to first do a cleanse because their digestive system is not prepared for fully raw grains. Children also cannot handle too much fiber, and infants should have none at all. So it all depends; it is not a black or white question.
A great fresh, raw way to start your day with tons of nutrients and energy is to make a green drink, as detailed in my book Do You Have the Guts to Be Beautiful?
