Years ago I studied exercise physiology, then took a job as a health educator at the Pritikin Longevity center, a world-renown wellness program. I saw participants gain exciting changes in health outcomes with lifestyle change, namely exercise, eating whole natural foods, and mindfulness stress reduction. The results were exciting and I committed to start applying it to my own health. Later I switched gears and worked in the sales division for big Pharma (Pfizer), and a corporate diet program, (Jenny Craig).
My experience has given me perspective on both prevention and treatment of dis-ease. I've experienced first-hand the power structures in place, that make it challenging for us to shift the status quo.
The poor track record of diet programs, the endless ads for prescription drugs, the ever-present processed foods crafted by the powerful food industry. These have culminated in many of us losing faith in our power to create health.
The largest negative impact on our health and aging over the last 100 years has to be the way our food has changed. Both the way we eat, and how much we eat. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is wreaking havoc.
To age well, changing the way we eat is key. And it’s not hard. We just think it is.
We have the power within. I can’t imagine a better way to use our mind than in service of a healthier body.
GET HEALTHY FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
