When it comes to our health, there is a direct link between the quality of the food we put in our mouth and how healthy our bodies are. There is also a direct link between what we eat and the 4 biggest killers: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
What most people are not aware of is that processed pet food is as bad for our pet's health as processed human food is for ours. Just as our rates of chronic disease a skyrocketing, so our pets as both food chains become heavily industrialized. By making sure we feed our pets healthy food choices, we help make sure they live longer and healthier lives. Let's see how.
Many of my clients ask me the question, "My doctor told me I need to take digestive enzymes to help me digest my food. What do you think? Does that mean something is wrong with me?"
Instead of giving you a "yes" or "no" answer, let me spend a couple of minutes talking about what enzymes are and then talk about if you need them.
An enzyme is a tiny chemical that performs a specific job. It is not a micro-organism as it does not grow or reproduce. Instead, it acts as a catalyst for other substances in order for them to grow, reproduce, function, or metabolize. Some enzymes do specific things at specific temperatures, some do these things with or without oxygen, and some with or without water. There are thousands of different enzyme types that have been discovered, and many more reactions have been identified that enzymes are responsible for.
It's something most people pay very little attention to. Some skip it completely, while others wolf it down in the car on the way to work. But breakfast (and what you eat for breakfast) is much more important than you may think. Let's talk about what makes a breakfast healthy, and what breakfast foods not only damage our body but also rob us of our energy.
In the world of health and nutrition, some of the worst things we can put in our mouths are falsely labeled as "highly nutritious!" and "heart healthy!" and "doctor recommended!" From breakfast cereals to fried foods to muffins and doughnuts, millions of Americans fill up on foods that are highly processed and refined, high in calories, high in fat, dense and heavy, and devoid of any real nutrition.
When it comes to breakfast, the single best way to begin your day is by eating fresh, living foods. What are these foods? Let's take a look, and let's talk about why you need them...
Due to the aggressive marketing techniques of cleaning manufacturers, the American public has developed a neurosis when it comes to the subject of bacteria. The fear-mongering has millions of Americans needlessly spending huge sums of money on toxic household cleaners and hand sanitizers in the belief that we must all lead highly sanitized lives.
This obsessive need to eradicate all germs is unhealthy and does far more harm than good. Most consumers are unaware that these very products contain highly toxic materials that cause far worse damage to our bodies.
