Isn’t today’s frantic pace of living incredible? How does a normal day work out for you? The chances are that you are working all the hours that are sent to you while trying to look after the needs of your family. Let’s face it; we work hard, don’t we? But we also play hard as well. In fact, in our desire to make the most out of living, many of us have let ourselves go, especially in our health.
We love to eat foods that are too rich for us, live life in the fast lane and smoke and drink too much. Little wonder that we get sick when we push our bodies over the limit so much and indulge in these pleasures. After we run our bodies down, we expect doctors to miraculously “fix” us—usually with medication. We have become a society addicted to pills and medications to make us happy, make us thin, and alleviate stress.
What happened to the concept of caring for ourselves and our bodies with holistic nutrition? Laziness has overtaken us and we don’t take care of ourselves as much as we should. We don’t eat well, we find excuses not to exercise, and we want to put very little effort into our goals to lose weight and enjoy good health. The chances are that this sounds very familiar. If it does, you’re not alone.
So that we can try and achieve the benefits of wellness and good health, holistic nutrition is very important to enable the reintroduction of balance. This will require a good deal of hard work! Everything that we eat will need to be considered and we will have to exercise on a regular basis. Remember, the doctors cannot perform miracles and we should never entrust them to do so. And, frankly, as much as we might depend on them, there are some things they just can’t fix.
After a long time dedicated to poor diet and maintenance, your body is crying out for a change. Little wonder you are feeling so run down and are always sick and tired of being sick and tired. Now is the time to really think about detoxification as this will limit and neutralize toxins that have built up in your organs. Isn’t it incredible to think that your organs perform such a great job every day and your liver, colon, kidneys, skin, lungs and lymph nodes all do amazingly well, and somehow manage to keep you going!
There comes a time when our self-cleaning operation has just about had enough, due to both our daily exposure to a poor environment and those self-inflicted wounds from our bad lifestyle.
Many experts agree that, from time to time we need to make adjustments and cannot rely on our amazing bodily functions to detoxify our systems by themselves. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from a chronic immune deficiency disease, such as fatigue, cancer or diabetes, detoxification may be of particular help. We rely too much on animal protein, saturated fats, chemicals and drugs like caffeine and alcohol. Our internal system was not designed to be able to accommodate all of this toxic matter. Even if you stick to a relatively healthy diet based around the concept of holistic nutrition, cleansing from time to time can really help to boost your immune system and deter those environmental toxins that can harbor viruses, parasites and bacteria.
