  Healthy Quotes
"In my mind the greatest mistake a person can make is to remain ignorant when he is surrounded, every day of his life, by the knowledge he needs to grow and be healthy and successful. It's all there. We need only to observe, read, learn...and apply."
Paul C. Bragg

"Before I learned I had heart disease, I didn't pay a great deal of attention to nutrition. I had heard it was better to use margarine than butter, better to use olive oil or canola oil than lard, and better to eat chicken than beef. I ate what was supposed to be better and I still got heart disease."
Dr. Neal Pinckney,

Getting Started

So where does one start in the quest for a healthier life?  We've put together some basic information, resources, and beginning steps to help you get started.  It's easier than you think and the rewards will keep you motivated.  Believe me, it's easier to change your lifestyle for health than to have to change it for sickness!
 

 

There are a few simple changes you will need to make in order to start your journey toward better health.  

The first thing you need to do is a self-health analysis.
1. What is the status of my health today?
2. Where do I want to be next year in my quest for health?
3. What am I willing to do to get there?

No one ever makes a worthwhile change in their life and health without asking at least those 3 questions, answering them honestly and making a commitment to change.  Getting and staying healthy is not an event, it's a lifestyle.  Once you start enjoying the benefits of a healthier diet and lifestyle, you will never want to look back to the way you lived before.  We had a friend of ours stay with us for a month.  In that time her acid reflux went away, her blood pressure went down 20 points and she lost a few pounds - in just a few weeks!  It really gets exciting to see someone regaining their health.  

Start with the Basics
Find out the fundamental basics of health, what cells need, what foods provide those needs and what foods don't.  We try to keep this section brief.  You could read volumes on the subject of human makeup and function.

First Things First - Basic Steps
Now that you know some of the basics, what are the first steps you need to take to initiate your new, healthier life.  

 

Note: Once you get the ball rolling, momentum will grow.  Especially if you are in less than optimum health when you start and begin to feel your body respond favorably to the better form of nutrition you are putting into it.  We believe in a Creator who not only made our bodies but also provided the necessary foods for them in a form that would allow the body to function as designed - toward health, protection and healing (Genesis 1:29).  We have gotten so far away from the form of food our bodies need that our bodies are breaking down, more and more every generation. The only ones benefitting by this are the medical and pharmaceutical industries, who thrive on our ill-health.  Their quest is focused on finding drugs to make the human body do or not do something by artificial means, instead of helping it through proper nutrition to do what it is programmed to do naturally - and with no ill side affects.

We recommend you look for a doctor who believes that diet is a form of treatment, especially if you are currently in ill health.  

We realize that some illnesses may be advanced in their effect on the body and may require more than food.  But better foods will assist the body in functioning as it was originally intended, improving a persons overall condition, even in the face of irreversible damage.  A friend of ours under hospice care, on oxygen, with an inoperable tumor, was able to reduce his oxygen need by half, his pain from the tumor lessened and he was mobile again, even driving his car a few months after changing his nutritional sources.  His quality of life improved tremendously.  

You were meant to have a healthy body not a sick one.  Your life matters to someone. If you can't do it for yourself, do it for that someone else!  You'll be so glad you did.
