Education in the medical world is still producing some very exciting things for us despite the never ending stream of commercial drugs we see so much of on television. These days more and more doctors are doing less of the old “treat the symptoms and not the problem”. Doctors themselves have recently taken a vested interest in finding the cause and effect that many fruits and vegetables have for our bodies.
Often we are finding out that many of the prescribed medications are causing malfunctions or deficiencies in our immune systems such as radiation or chemo therapy for cancer. These are examples of extraordinary damage being done at the expense of our immune systems. The question is what are doctors doing to restore the function of our immune systems?
What is the doctor’s number one recommendation for boosting and aiding our immune systems? Well don’t be surprised, because the number one suggestion is to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day. But doctors know that we are likely to not eat the fruit and vegetables that are so readily available to us in the stores. So, how are they getting the appropriate vitamins to us? If you guessed in the pill form, you guessed correctly.
Doctors taking the lead on the battle for our immune systems are using their fancy commercial drug companies to take all the essential benefits out of all of our common groceries and apply them to capsules that have all the benefits and conveniences of the designer drugs.
If you think to yourself, “well its nothing new, doctors have always been prescribing vitamins”. This is not true. Furthermore, when was the last time you took the appropriate amounts of minerals in your diet? Compare this to how many drugs are treating your various ailments and then have a look at the bottles in your kitchen or in your medicine cabinet. How many of them contain the natural good things that you were taught would benefit you as a child?
What is the key to natural wellness and how can I start to apply this to my life? If you asking this question then I have an answer for you. If you are strongly considering health alternatives for yourself and your family, the key is you. You must first become an active health conscious person with a changed mindset about what goes in and out of your body. I recommend this as a plan for you and those you know and love. Set the example.
Back to the basics it is. Drink water. When was the last time you spent a day drinking the appropriate amount of water? Start exercising. This does not mean buy new clothes and workout equipment. This means using the space in your home to get a good healthy heart rate and using that to work with the new healthy immune boosting foods and vitamins you will be taking.
Eat a proper diet. You may think that this is not new information at all. But if you are not fit and healthy reading this, then you probably do not have a healthy diet. This is where eating fruits and vegetables comes in. Now, before you start thinking about how expensive it is to buy produce from the store, let me take you back to the beginning when we were talking about doctors making vitamins for you to take.
The reason these doctors make these pills full of all the expensive healthy stuff you don’t or won’t buy at the store, is to save you money. Yes, to save you money while still making you healthy. Inside the vitamin pills you will find all the extracts from those foods that are not really favorites of yours. Take one little vitamin, this is essentially saying the same thing that mother used to say to you, “did you take your vitamins?” Did you really think eating and being healthy was going to change when you grew up? Mother always did know best.
