We live in a society that has become plagued by chronic diseases. The number of people affected by conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer is higher than ever before. At a time when we have the best care available, we are at our sickest.
It’s time for a change! It’s time for us to reclaim our health!
The most overlooked cause of subluxations is from chemical stress. Most people assume this refers to hazardous chemical compounds or toxins found in our environment. While that is largely true, the most significant source of chemical stress is in fact DIET. That’s right, the foods you eat are not only fuel for your body but are essential to your spinal health and overall well-being; and it’s time to re-think what constitutes a healthy diet.
Over the past several years piles (upon piles) of research have been published illustrating the benefits of a plant-based diet. And now, more than ever, more and more people are listening to the message. In 2017 the demand for vegan and vegetarian foods increased by 987% and veganism is expected to be the “biggest food shift of 2018”.
So what does a plant-based diet entail?
A plant-based diet is a lifestyle choice that promotes the consumption of plant-based foods including whole-grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and tubers; while eliminating animal based products such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. It is by far the healthiest diet and ultimately the one that is best suited for our anatomy. Animal-based foods increase levels of inflammation, toxicity, acidity, and cellular disease throughout the body, which over time promotes the onset of chronic diseases such as:
- Heart disease
- Autoimmune Diseases including: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Thyroid conditions, and hormone dysfunction
- Neurological and Cognitive Impairments including: Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s/dementia, and Parkinson’s
There are only a handful of things we are truly capable of controlling in is this world and diet is by far one of the most important.
If you don’t look out for your own health, no one else will. So if you’re looking to re-claim your health, optimize your well-being, and enjoy a long happy life, the plant-based diet is the way to go.
