Junk Food? Only If You Want To Feed Your Pain
Most of us eat too much of the food that enhances pain, and too little of the food that reduces pain. Our cells depend on food and water for creating energy, healing and cleansing, but because of the poor food we eat, much of which is highly processed and loaded with additives, we have persistent inflammation, contributing to musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, cancer… you name it.
Refined grains, omega 6 fats, too much sugar, and too much dairy – especially milk – all stress the system. Pain caused by too much inflammation damages nerves beyond any injury, and also causes tissue pain in the tendons, ligaments, and joints.
Our ancestors were hunters and gatherers, where the soil was rich in nutrients and had not yet been made toxic with chemicals. They ate fresh meat, berries, roots (therefore, a lot of healthy omega 3 oils), plus fruit and vegetables high in antioxidants. They had no processed foods, no wheat, no trans fats, no excess sugar, no omega 6 and no processed dairy. This healthy diet helped to control chronic inflammation, something which plagues our modern day western lifestyle.
To be healthy, we need healthy food and because we are not getting enough, we make too much fibrin, causing too much scar tissue in our tendons, skin, and joints. This then causes arthritis, fibromyalgia, artery narrowing, and poor healing all round.
All this unhealthy, sugary food is prone to cause us to over eat and this in turn means we get too heavy for our height.
Fatter, faster than any other country
We are becoming increasingly obese and so are our children. We are a fat nation, growing fatter, faster than any country in the world, and because of this, we find ourselves in a major health crisis. It’s normal to want our children to do better than us, but sadly letting our children get fat is doing quite the opposite.
The next generation is not going to live as long as us
It’s not just food which affects the quality of our lives. There are other factors like stress, mindset, lifestyle and exercise and we can help you with all of these. Diet, however, is in your control. Even if you eat a little of the healthier foods, pulling some fresh vegetables out of your garden from well fertilised soil, it is a small start.
By looking beyond the short term gain of the lack of effort in preparing junk food, and instead focus on the long term gains of preparing and eating healthy food, you will be taking an important step to a less painful, less obese and longer life. Not only that, you get the added benefit of a much broader world of gastronomic delights.
If doing this for yourself doesn’t give you enough motivation, at least do it for your children, so they at least may have the chance to live as long as you and have a much better quality of life.
