Life is not fair.  It's not convenient. It's messy and sweaty and a lot of work.  Now that these truths are out of the way, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work.    
The work of healing and health care is not for the "just give me a pill" crowd.  As a culture, we have been so conditioned to look for the free deal, winning the lottery, getting something for nothing, that it is no wonder we look for the shortcut to real health.  The reality, whether you are willing to accept it or not, is that there is no pill, no drug, no herb or anything else that will make up for the consequences of a lazy or slothful lifestyle. 

You cannot eat at Babylons table and expect to have true and natural health.  The solution is to build health.  Health is built in the kitchen and through sound practices that have been proven for many many years.  Rules such as:  Eat whole natural foods, Get enough sleep and rest, Drink pure water, Build healthy relationships, etc.

So what are whole natural foods?  Food that your great grandma ate.  It is whole grains, like wheat, rye, oats, and barley.  White flour or foods made it them are not whole.  Refined sugar and foods made from them are not whole foods. Whole foods are fresh fruits and vegetables.  Whole foods are nuts and seeds, like almonds, cashews, pecans, sunflower, flax and chia seeds.  Whole foods are sprouted seeds and legumes. Whole food is cooking from scratch, with ingredients that do not come out of a can, box or bag. 

Whew!! That sounds like a lot of work.  Isn't it easier just popping a pizza in the mircowave?   Of course, it is easier.  But what you save in convenience, you may pay dearly with your health.  Not right away, but over time.
Remember, it is not what you eat some of the time but what you eat most of the time that will have an effect on your health.   Sorry, if I sound harsh, but getting and keeping healthy may be more important than you may realized.

Healing at home really is a priority that needs to be made if you are serious about your health and the health of those you love. It really is fun and exciting once you get in to it.
