Let’s think about a plant for a minute. If we put a plant in sand and we don’t apply any fertilizer and we don’t give it any water, it’s going to die very quickly, isn’t it? What we find with the body is it is absolutely no different. What you choose to put in it and what you choose to feed it and water it with makes a massive difference to your overall health.Ten thousand cells die within your body every day and those cells need to be replaced so that the body is able to continue to grow and function. It’s not going to do that well with poor quality food and poor quality nutrition.
Unfortunately we live in a very toxic environment now. There are pesticides, fungicides, herbicides on almost everything. Half of our food is genetically modified so we’re seeing a significant decline in the quality of nutrition that is even available out there now even more so than in our grandparents’ day. Supplementation as well as choosing a good balanced healthy diet is now not really a luxury. It is a necessity because even if we ate all organic and as well as we absolutely could and made sure to consume at least half of our body weight in fluid ounces of water every day, we still are not getting that same quality of nutrition, minerals, vitamins and everything that the body needs that our grandparents did even just 50 years ago.
Nutrition, supplementation and how you treat your body – you have a choice to thrive or to slowly deteriorate.
