Do you want vibrant health? Do you want it enough to make it a goal for the New Year?
Are you willing to learn what you need to learn and do the work to last a lifetime?
To be honest, most people aren’t. Excuses start happening right and left. I don’t have time, it’s too much and I’m overwhelmed, I don’t have an support, I’m a picky eater, I don’t like change…and on and on and on.
Any of these sound familiar and can you add to them?
I’m not trying to turn you off right out of the gate, I’m just being real and it’s better if you are too.
Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Change is a challenge at the beginning but once you see results from the change, it provides motivation to keep going.
I talk a lot about taking care of you and your gut health. The reason for that is your gut is considered your second brain and with that is 70-80% of your immune system.
Most diseases and illnesses can be linked to the health of your gut. Are you going to continue to rely on the Doctor or Dietician to improve your health when they aren’t trained in proper nutrition?
Most dieticians still teach to avoid healthy saturated fats like butter, lard, and coconut oil, to name a few things.
Doctors don’t talk to you about gut health nutrition. They aren’t trained to. So what happens? Meds are prescribed to alleviate any pain or discomfort and perhaps more diagnostic testing is required.
While the testing is often necessary, it also becomes somewhat of a guessing game, especially with the lifestyle illnesses being seen today.
It’s time to gain the knowledge you need and take your health into your own hands. You really can no longer stick your head in the sand and pretend that things will get better and that you don’t have to incorporate some kind of change.
Rather than viewing change as a bad thing, I invite you to view change as your new best friend.
I and others that I hang around, view health as a necessity and one that is up to us. We don’t rely on others to do this for us.
We educate ourselves constantly and implement change when necessary. Is it always easy? No, but definitely worth doing and not something we even think about not doing.
We only get one go around at this life and we’re given one body…why not make the most of it and take the best possible care of your body?
I challenge you to at least consider implementing steps towards cleaning up your diet, your lifestyle, physical activity or something else that will move you towards living a vibrant and healthy life.
You are worth every ounce of effort it will take and so much more!
