When I was growing up, I was supposedly taught (unsuccessfully by the way) to not question anything. Of course I never paid much attention to that so-called “life lesson” because it seemed too limiting for a kid with an extremely active imagination and an insatiable desire to explore and conquer the wild outdoors. The question “why” is one of the most wonderful questions and so many are either afraid to ask, afraid to know the answer or they just don’t want to look behind the tattered curtain to see the real Wizard.
Why Do We Blindly Trust Industries and Authorities?
I used to think that doctors and food companies were dedicated to my health. As I started asking “why is my blood pressure so high?” and “why do I need to take medication instead of finding out the cause of the problem?” I discovered very few knew the answers, so I was more curious than ever. What I found out was that doctors could not really explain the cause- my blood pressure was just dangerously high and if I was to take these pills I could bring it down to a more manageable level.
A Turning Point
The more I asked why the more frustrated I got so I began a mission to question the authorities that for my whole life had been telling me that “you shouldn’t ask such questions.” Their answer usually was “because that’s the way life is” or “this is probably just a genetic problem.” So many times they said it “must be hereditary” as the final “let’s shut him up, because how can he argue with that one” answer. I had bought it hook line and sinker until I discovered that while we may have the potential to develop a disease, eating well can stop the disease from ever manifesting in the body.
I Became Determined
I asked about blood pressure to different people and searched for clues about it over and over until I began to better understand the body and the internal artery inflammation that takes place due to diet and I came to realize that by taking certain steps to change my diet I could actually reverse the inflammation and damage that was being done. “FinalIy,” I thought “No more Pills! Sign me up!”
You Know Your Body Best
The body is an amazing “kingdom” and so many people treat it like its out of their control or knowledge. The fact is our body reacts much better when we take control and treat it with respect and love. The next time you reach for something you know is bad for your body ask yourself “is this a loving thing to do”? if the answer is no, then you know what to do.
Learn to listen and speak to your body and you’ll do more than thrive, you’ll become an amazing super-being with new super powers.
By asking questions about organic whole-food, nutrition, detoxing, and processed food, I set in motion a new way of looking at my diet and health and it gave me amazing energy, I lost a lot of unwanted weight and my thoughts became clearer and more focused.
My advise to those reading is…
Question everything that is not natural. We are being bombarded with toxins and people who have no interest or compassion for your or your family’s well being. Even if it’s someone who is a supposed “authority” on health, you need to ask if their words make sense, and resonate with you so you know the truth for yourself. Also see if they are giving advice from their experience and ask “how natural is what they are telling me?” Let your food be your medicine and medicine be your food” has rung true for millions of people and continues to inspire me, over 1500 years after it was spoken by Hippocrates. It’s the simple truth, the answer hiding in plain sight.
Being your own source of knowledge, is extremely powerful rather than letting others (corporate interests) tell you what they want you to know (and do and buy.) As many of you know there are people out there who are credible, respected and have no interest in misleading you. This is why we became inspired and felt compelled to gather trustworthy sources here for you. In fact, leaders in the true healing movement are interested in you learning the truths about your own health and self-healing through sharing and reaching out to those who have real-life stories to tell. It’s important to find the strength and courage and desire to uncover the truth. It’s sad but true- ignorance to what is going on in your own body and within society at large, can literally kill you. You could break it down as in: ignor-ance: you choose to ignore it.
Take stock of your current choice, your willingness to accept the truth. What kinds of information about the health care system, the food supply, the war on cancer, the rise of obesity and related diseases, and the spoils of corporate America are you willfully ignoring because you don’t have the energy to do something with the information you might learn if you dug deeper?
We Are Here To Help
We at Kale U are well aware that there are people out there who are struggling with debilitating diseases and we will always extend a hand to those who are seeking alternatives and natural healing as a way to not only reverse disease but thrive on a whole new level, with all the energy and information that we can share. We aren’t doctors, but we have uncovered some simple truths about how to live a healthy, vibrant life.
Healing has to happen in the cells and when the food cells you take in are clean, alive and full of oxygen, the body knows exactly what to do with them- use them to clear out old toxic cells and create new healthy ones. The detoxification process may be uncomfortable and sometimes painful, but the body needs to clear out the poisons first before so deep healing can begin.
Be Strong, Be Well
So have the courage to question anyone and everything you don’t understand and take back your power to “be the cause of your own health.” Because no one out there will ever be able to do that for you, no matter what their degree, or how convincing they may sound. A child may think “its just food” but an adult knows better and can teach and nourish a child in ways they don’t fully understand yet. Parents are like gods to a child, so it’s important to know the facts about food and nourishment so that this generation and our next can reverse the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) path. It’s not just about food anymore, it’s about true cellular nourishment. It’s about truth.
