Those who know me have heard me say many times over the last couple of years how powerful nutrition is. That’s for a simple fact; changing my diet changed my life. Yes, I had to use other nutritional supplements to help get my body back on the right track, and I don’t believe I could have healed without their help too, but the bottom line is food is powerful stuff. I’ve read reports of people healing from various auto-immune diseases by changing their diets to remove the harmful chemicals we eat (unknowingly) daily, and by removing foods which our bodies just aren’t programmed to digest (hence why I follow the Primal/Paleo lifestyle). I can speak for myself and say that by removing all grains and dairy, I have changed my health. I have more energy, less physical ailments (from digestion to heartburn, painful cramping, headaches, fatigue, nausea, mood swings, etc) and whenever I cheat, I pay for it. Quickly.
It’s not an easy diet for most, and I understand completely. I live it everyday, so I get it. But for the first time in years, I’m able to connect with life in a way I haven’t been able to for as long as I can remember. And it feels good to feel good 🙂
