So often we get stuck in a routine or shy away from questioning the reasoning behind what has been taught to us or passed on for generations.
Even when we know it’s harming us.
The Tomato Effect is explained in the video below and speaks to our nutritional-disconnect with regards to proven solutions.
Many people are waking up to the raw reality that diet and nutritional answers for all our diseases are right in front of us. I know friends who will fight till their death to continue to eat the way they do, even though they know it is killing them. Someone once told me ” Its easier for some people to change their religion than their diet” and from what I’ve seen over the years, that statement for some people rings very true. Others however have embraced this new (yet old as time) way of looking at what makes us healthy. Whole, Organic, Living and nutrient rich foods.
The solutions to all and I mean all our illnesses are right in front of us. Many say that all disease is an opportunity and it’s up to each of us to “be the cause of our own health”. I agree and know for myself this statement to be true.
With the internet at our fingertips we can access and decipher credible information and studies now in very little time and the learning curve has shortened. Healthy recipes are in abundance and if you can’t prepare it alone, there are videos of exactly step by step how to create nutritious plant-based dishes. It just takes a desire and commitment to shifting or maintaining an alkaline state within the body. Look at your addictions or cravings to certain foods (salty, sweet, fatty, starchy, etc.. ) and set a realistic goal to change your diet. Remember that while you shift to a cleaner diet, your body will be in detox mode and you may feel some symptoms from the elimination of toxins from the body. It will all be worth it and not only will you gain back energy, you will begin to think more clearly about what you want in your body and why.
For those who really need more help, can’t do it alone or want a place to get away and heal with other like minded people, I highly recommend this link: OHI
Dr. Michael Greger explains below very clearly why we are caught in the “Tomato Effect” once again and this time with regards to heart disease.
