iam constantly amazed at the simplicity of wellness and how the right nutrition, if available to us, is often the answer to so many unnecessary illnesses in our world today. Simple things can go a long way and an example of this is to create a simple 4 to 6-ingredient juice a week. This can improve wellness and change our lives dramatically. If you put the right nutrition in, the body can heal itself.
Simply put, we can heal and improve our health by putting the right nutrition into a place where it can be absorbed and used by the body to do what the body is designed to do. Spending a lot of time in Mongolia, I have been working with the local community to improve their health and wellbeing. I observed as an ex-nurse and a wellness practitioner that there seems to be a huge issue with Rickets, hips, back and knee problems. This is evident in Mongolians over the age of about 45 years of age, in large part due to their poor nutrition, a lack of vitamin D, calcium and other vitamins found in good fruits and vegetables.
I also observed that there is minimal to almost no fruit and vegetables available most of the year and then when it is available, it’s expensive and imported from China or other Asian countries. Noticeably, when a small effort is made to eat more healthy by incorporating more fruits and vegetables in their diets, or indulge in massage or some other small but effective new lifestyle practice, it seems to show massive changes and lowers their discomfort, lifts their spirits, and their general health and wellbeing improves rapidly.
You would think Australia would be different! Fruits and vegetables are readily available and we have quality seasonal produce. Comparatively, we don’t have the high incidence of rickets and we tend to live longer, but often our bodies are starving a good nutritional balance. We are eating more of the wrong things and consequently put on more weight and ultimately die earlier than we should. A bit dramatic? Unfortunately, that is the truth. Eating junk food or nutritionally deficient food is detrimental to our health.
We are nutritionally starving and making ourselves susceptible to different diseases for the same reason as the Mongolians. - because we seem to have lost the ability to absorb nutrients and so are lacking the most fundamental and simple nutrition absorption from our diets. Introducing a nutritionally balanced juice of 500mls/1 pint juice into our lives daily (or if this is not possible then weekly) will be beneficial. This will enable our bodies to have a chance to do the work it needs to improve our health. HOW SIMPLE IS THAT!!! Would it not be grand to have the control and power to be able to choose health over disease? Why wait till we get too sick to do anything to help ourselves?
There are many different juice recipes that are freely available online, or in books. The important thing to remember is to mix it up with other fruit and vegetables. This can be extremely beneficial to you and your body than masticating (eating) the fruit and vegetables all the time. Why juice and not just eat more fruits and vegtables? Because juicing fresh is live and the nutrients get into our system within 15 minutes of hitting our stomach.
I suggest changing the juices around by alternating between a balanced red juice and a balanced green juice. The benefits you will feel are amazing. From my personal experience, I noticed within a couple of days of juicing that there was a good difference in my life and how I felt. I have lost over 30 kilos because I simply added more nutrition into my body through balanced juicing. What this did for my body was nothing short of miraculous. My improvements included better heart health, to eliminating my sleep apnea, to being able to run again after over 20 years. I have gained a life back and I now feel better than I did in my 20’s and I’m now in my 50’s. I believe everyone has the right to choose to feel good and I think you will see and feel the healing in your own body within a short time from a simple daily fresh juice.
How do you start to change your situation? Simple add juicing to your life. Not the juice from the shelves at the supermarkets and shops, this is not live juice. Please don’t be extreme, for example just juicing all Carrots or all Broad Beans is the same as starving your body of good nutrition you will get sicker. One thing the universe has taught me is “If it’s not balanced, it’s not right for us”. Make a simple juice a day and reap the benefits.
