After Election Food For Thought:

I can’t help but go about my life and sadly notices the complete and utter decline in the health of the American People. When you venture out of the cities to the rural (and less affluent areas) the picture is dismal. American health has never been so poor.

 Two years ago I found myself in a state fair in rural New York. And …. Oh My Gosh! This was perhaps a collection of some of the sickest individuals I have ever seen. I was stunned.

I saw some moms so ravaged by obesity, they were towing their equally overweight children in carts behind them in their motorized wheel chair. I saw people that had limbs removed due to diabetes and I saw cancer coming through the skin—tumors hanging from their neck and face. You might not believe it until you see it, but take my word for it me: This slice of American pie was not a pretty sight. Devastating, more like it.

That night I hugged my kids tight; I wanted them to know just how blessed I felt for the tools and resources we have to live healthful lives—to do the best for our bodies and live really fulfilling lives.

The most recent statistics state that 27% of Americans are obese, and about three times that are overweight. What a lot of Americans don’t understand is that weight is not just a cosmetic issue. Chronic Illness follows a rising scale. And the best time to take action is before the trip to the Doctor’s office.

Adding more “real food” and raw foods to your diet helps us give our bodies the nutrients it needs to combat illness and be healthy! Using raw foods as a healthy tool has proved to be the amazing key to reversing serious disease. And hey, if raw foods can help reverse disease doesn’t it make logical sense that it can prevent disease?

Learn to really begin using food as medicine….
