If you are what you eat, proof is in the pudding
After The Bells have finished ringing and we’ve clinked the last of our glasses in a festive ‘cheers’, the cold reality of January starts to bite.
All those late nights, yummy glasses of wine, cheese boards, chocolates and turkey sandwiches have started to have their revenge.
The clothes are a tighter, the skin and hair not so healthy and glossy - it’s time to take action.
As part of my attempt to detox my body this month, I have purchased a book called Medical Medium: Lifechanging Foods by Anthony William.
Anthony, the medical medium claims to have helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed ordon’t seem able to be resolved.
He says he has managed to do all of this by listening to a divine voice that speaks into his ear, telling him the cause of people’s pain, illness or discomfort and how they can overcome it.
OK, you may or may not believe that, but it is fascinating.
He believes that nutrition plays a vital role, so the books delve deeply into the healing power of 50 fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that apparently have an extraordinary effect on our health and spiritual wellbeing.
I actually believe that our health and wellbeing is directly down to what we eat and drink.
We only have to compare our diets here in the UK to some other parts of the world where the proof is in the big fattening pudding. We know this, yet we do nothing about it. One of the reasons appears to be that we seem to have poor dietary education.
That coupled with the fact that it’s so inconvenient to eat well when you are busy.
Convenience food is everywhere and it’s far too easy for us to just grab and go.
A healthy snack takes a little thought and prep time and we don’t seem to want to allow for that.
Instead we grab the nearest thing and gobble it down. We are getting more and more unhealthy every year and it doesn’t look like its going to change anytime soon.
So, being as naughty as everyone else and constantly concerned for my health, I’m starting afresh this month and am going to make some significant changes.
I will report back my progress so stay tuned. If you would like to find out more about Laura’s work, the services she book an provides, appointment,have her test your products or answer a make-up query, www. go to lauradawsonm or contact her akeup.com on laura@ lauradawsonm akeup.com
