Here is my most recent thoughts…reflections…pondering on products that are geared toward weight loss rather health and wellness…
If a company, a person, an entity is truly interested in a persons health they they should strive to go out of business!
This is what I mean…
For example…does law enforcement like seeing criminals, crime, etc?
Wouldn’t a cop love to be out of a job because there is no crime? I would hope so!!!
With that same thought in mind…wouldn’t a person or an entity selling products for wellness and health want to teach individuals how to get healthy, lose body fat, and have energy with as minimal of their products as possible….if not totally just be a support on nutrition without ever selling a product ever again?!
I think this is my biggest beef with so many products that are our there. Do they really want people to learn how to nourish their bodies with real, whole food? Are they willing to sacrifice their numbers to teach others how to empower themselves with changes in their food, lifestyle, stress, hormones….etc?!
There are some out there who are trying to do this…I have several friends who I KNOW teach great things to others and are constantly trying to learn as well…yet there are so many who sadly are not. But I guess we can liken it to a doctor who is out of shape telling his patients to eat good, exercise and get plenty of sleep…
Why does this bother me? Why do I even go on this tangent? I don’t get anything out of this. Go back to the why…because I care!
I care because I see so many people feeling desperate or unsatisfied with their health. These emotions create a willingness within them to sacrifice basic needs or charging things on credit cards to receive their “magic solution”.
If a person can just take the time to understand the mind, body and soul of their health….THEY TOO CAN HAVE LASTING RESULTS…LASTING HEALTH….LASTING SATISFACTION…LASTING “WEALTH”…LASTING HAPPINESS!!!
All of this with real food, real knowledge, contentment….real savings!!!
Thus that is my big “beef”, my poke, my frustration at the world of packaged products. I want all individuals to understand that if we are not meeting our nutritional needs with true, real food, then all that packaged stuff that is suppose to enhance your already real food eating, well its going to be wasted…
I want us to quit “buying” into the “promises” and advertisement!
This all concerns me because I am raising an amazing young lady. She is old enough now to really notice these kinds of adds, this push for women to look “perfect”….this push for “weight loss” everywhere. I want her to feel empowered enough to know that whole, real food is the way to feeling healthy, feeling balanced, and looking good naturally with the uniqueness that God designed her to be.
I want to know I have raised a young lady who will not feel the pressure to “look like everyone else”.
Will I have raised her to know and believe she is beautiful…just the way GOD MADE HER!!?
Will I have raised her to listen to her bodies needs through nourishing food, good sleep and following God’s wants and desires not the worlds.
Will I have broken the cycle of insanity thinking that we must all be twiggy to reach health and happiness?
The further insanity of over working? Over training? Criticizing oneself? Eating too fast…too little…processed….supplementing to compensate…
Will I have raised her to know better than all the lies that are out there telling her what will make her feel right by societies standards.
Will I have raised her to trust her instincts, her gut, her God…
To know she doesn’t need any “magic” potion to feel amazing…beautiful…to be strong….to be healthy….
All she needs is:
…and maybe then maybe some assistance to support her already healthy lifestyle through herbs, minerals, essential oils…vitamins…things that are natural and not processed….
and lots and lots of SELF REFLECTION WITH GOD!!!
Thus, during your 21 day challenge of detoxing your mind, body, and soul….reflect on what suppliment is truly of help to you and your whole body health pursuits and which may be a crutch?
