There is a lot of division in the world of nutrition. There is research backing almost every nutritional theory someone can dream up and it all seems pretty convincing. The thing is, when it comes to food, there are no hard and fast rules. There is no right or wrong. But there is certainly better or worse.
God designed our bodies with an amazing set of fail-safes so that we could survive in a less than perfect world. Civilizations have survived on nothing but grains in times of famine. Cultures have survived on little more than seal blubber in the barely inhabitable regions of the Arctic.
But while we may well survive on almost any diet, America’s alarmingly poor health statistics are a good sign that as a whole we are barely surviving and certainly not thriving. The diseases that have become prevalent in our modern society are all significantly linked to dietary choices.
What if instead of surviving and living with aches, pains, and disease we could thrive? What if we could live without all those extra stresses – free of the need to medicate or cope because we didn’t first create the perfect environment for disease to set up camp in our bodies?
There are a handful of medical professionals who have seen the power of a whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle, but the majority of the professional crowd is largely disinterested in natural, preventative nutrition. They have money to make “healing” us after we get sick. Most, if not all, of the current large-scale proponents of a whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle also have something to gain from new followers. They sell “whole-food” meal replacement shakes, granola bars, nutritional supplements, etc.
I am not a doctor. I am not a certified nutritionist. I am not a chef. I am not part of a large group organized or controlled by investors or government agendas. I am one person with a passion for studying nutrition that has seen the power of real food and I want to share my passion with anyone who will listen. The mission of life.unlabeled. is to fuel a grassroots movement to show people the truth about food and the human body. What is food made up of and what do our bodies need from it to thrive instead of just survive? We have circled the mountain of healthy living as it’s been presented to us for too long, and it’s time to move on, quit looking to others for answers, and find out for ourselves what we need to live vibrantly. To live in a world where disease is the exception to the rule, not the steadily increasing norm. It’s time we look at undisputed nutrition science rather than looking at how that science has been interpreted and translated for us. Armed with the facts, we can safely and effectively make healthy choices for our families and ourselves.
