Affordable Healthcare / Steps to Wellness

Who isn't tired of listening to all the "talk" about health care?  I am. And I'm mostly frustrated with the ability of people to ignore some simple truths. If everyone implemented the practices below, the issue of health care and health insurance would resume its proper position in our national conversation.  Today I was inspired to share some of the things that I KNOW will help to build good health. I would suggest that you read through the post before clicking on links. Here goes:
Our bodies ask for what they need, but they can only order from the MENU they have been served.  Serve the good stuff.
Shop the perimeter of the grocery store: buy fresh food.

Make water your primary drink. To de-chlorinate water, leave it in a glass pitcher overnight.  I've started leaving a pitcher of water and a glass on my kitchen counter.  We drink and refill often.  After you start to adequately hydrate, your body will tell you to drink.

Build meals around simple foods, with few ingredients.  If you can't pronounce it easily your body can't easily decode it.

If you are struggling with illness, try avoiding bread for a few weeks and see what happens to your diet and your body. Much is being said about topics like gluten intolerance , and wheat belly. There are reasons for this!  

Refined Sugar, unfortunately, is the enemy.  Eliminate it, as much as possible, and you will live to discover its appeal is far less formidable, and that "regular foods" taste good.  

If conventional medicine has let you down, consider seeing a naturopathic doctor or integrative medical doctor; they will view your body as a whole, your symptoms as signals to listen to, rather than disease to cover up.

Use coconut oil in your cooking and on your skin; Also switch to coconut or palm-based soaps. 

My last tips: not the least tips:

Find an exercise program that you can follow and enjoy. It is never too late to start: even my 87-year-old stepfather is discovering how much exercise helps.

Develop thankfulness.  A thankful heart is light.

Laugh.  Laughter is good medicine 

Pray, respect God, and practice humility: Proverbs 3: 7-8 " Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths smooth."  

Give the gift of your unique self to those around you, especially to your family; but also to your neighbor, friend and co-worker.

My love to you!

My Father's Words

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." Love never fails
