The Raw Food Vegan
Over the years I have come to believe that nutrition is so much more than simply the foods and beverages we consume. Nutrition, when you really think about it, is anything that is nutritive. At the foundation, this of course includes healthy, whole, living foods and plenty of pure water, but what it also includes is our thoughts, feelings, and how we respond to the world around us.
Negative thinking and stress have been shown to be deleterious to our health, where a positive outlook and loving thoughts are known to produce ‘good’ chemicals in your brain that encourage the body to heal, grow and repair. In order to achieve true health, we cannot ignore the connection between our mind and body.
Our bodies are intelligent operating systems whose goal is to be healthy. All that we are required to do is simply provide it with the proper fuel so that it can naturally do what it does best. And the amazing thing is… it is never too late to begin. The ingredients for health are simple; whole foods, pure water, healthy core beliefs, positive thoughts, loving relationships, regular detoxification, exercise, and rest.
With a little education and an equal measure of support you will be well on your way in your journey to self-health.
