You are what you eat As an RN, it’s quite puzzling to me how little nutrition education is given to both nurses and doctors in today’s medical world. After having received my raw food chef certification and educating myself over the last ten years with countless books/documentaries/ educated talks I’m asking myself why this isn’t at the forefront of all medical education. After all, if we taught people that what you eat, becomes you & fuels your delicate organs, maybe people would be conscious about what they consume. Maybe instead of always being “diet” crazy or obsessed over the latest work out trends we could all know and understand that it’s pretty simple. Eating plants, vegetables, fruits, Whole Foods, plant based, “raw” foods will actually fuel your body, your organs will thrive, your body & mind will thrive, and you will stop, reverse, and fight DIS-EASE within your body. If we start looking at medical conditions from a whole body perspective (mind/body & gut/brain connection) we have a chance at combatting any dis ease within our bodies ourselves! After four years of nursing education, I could tell you what pill to take for that (started to feel like my education was funded by big pharma) but after ten years of empowering my own education I can strongly, firmly, tell you that a plant will take care of that. But as always, don’t take my word for it.... do your own research & formulate your own opinions, all I know is plants are for me & I don’t need dead animal energy and secretions in my blood and fueling my organs! Plants coming from my pits! LOL Lovely illustration by artist unknown.
