One of the very reasons I was attracted to being a Natural Nutrition Educator is because I once ate a diet that caused me all kinds of problems, and I didn’t know it. I just thought I was having some bad luck. That bad luck included chronic fatigue, brain fog, painful arthritis, chronic constipation and uterine cancer. I was in deep trouble. When I was at my darkest hour, a miracle happened. I was introduced to Food as Medicine, to detoxing my body with raw plant based foods and juices. Maybe, like you, at the time I wasn’t that crazy about vegetables. But desperation demanded I wake-up to a new way to live my life. The process was sooooo successful that I have been on a mission to teach what I learned to anyone who, like me, needs a second chance at life.
What I learned was I was eating a diet of mainly acidic foods that kept my poor body in a constant state of inflammation. Chronic systemic inflammation is not confined to a particular area in the body. Acid foods create acidic blood. As acidic blood moves throughout the body it causes damage to the blood vessels, joints and many internal organs and systems. This inflammatory process, day in and day out, causes pain to sufferers and eventual damage and disease.
I began by juicing, eating two salads a day, drinking water all day everyday, eating fiber rich fruits and veggies….and I went all organic. Chemicals used to grow foods are very acidic to the body. I bypassed bottled, boxed and processed foods. These foods are packed with artificial chemicals, colors and hidden sugars. Sugars are one of the main inflammation foods. When I got on board with eating a diet of 80% alkaline foods all my ‘bad luck’ cleared up. Yes, even the cancer. It blew my world wide open.
The body is a miraculous machine. Given what it needs to function optimally it knows what to do to repair, restore, renew. Oh, and heres the amazing part. Like people, plant-based foods work best in communities, when combined in nutrient dense combinations with other vegetables and fruits. There is a science to it that anyone can learn.
I thought, if I didn’t know that what I was putting in my mouth was the culprit for my problems, there had to be many people that were in the same boat I once was. Suffering unnecessarily.
Hence, began Diet For Living School. I knew I couldn’t reach enough people. So I began a program to teach others to become educators, Certified Health Coaches. Today, people come from all of the United States and the World to train with us.
Our last training for 2017 is this Friday. We are so humbled by the students committed to this education. Because like us, they have a burning passion to go out into the world and make a difference in the lives of their families and communities.
As always we will be posting photos daily on the Diet For Living School Facebook, so that you can follow along with us.
If you too feel the call to help others make lifestyle changes that will improve and save their lives, join us in the New Year.
