Chasing Health In 2018!

apple-1873078__340

I am of the belief that the CDC (center for disease control) lists in the vicinity of 13,000 different human diseases.

After some recent study and research I am convinced there is only ONE human disease, that can exhibit 13,000 different symptoms. At its very core all human illness and disease starts with malfunctioning cells. All of us have malfunctioning cells, but our immune systems are strong enough to kill them before they can proliferate to a point that cause a problem. Conditions like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and the common cold all originate from malfunctioning cells that have been afforded an environment to grow and spread.

The beauty of breaking it down and understanding the “root cause” is we can then move forward focusing all of our efforts on rectifying it instead of just masking the symptoms.

Now, there are only two causes of a malfunctioning cell, and they are TOXICITY and DEFICIENCY. 

When humans are looking to improve their health parameters the first thing they do is dive head first into grueling gym regimes. Of course, we all know how this game plays out, we get injured and/or sick (malfunctioning sick cells), and then give up after just a few short weeks blaming exercise as the culprit for our ultimate demise.

With quotes like “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food” and “All disease starts in the gut” the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, knew all to well the power quality nutrition plays in achieving optimal health in a human body.

So where the fuck did it all go so horribly wrong? Our pursuit and insatiable appetite for mass production has ensured that basic farming techniques are no longer adhered too. Things like overuse of pesticides, herbicides, and soil depleting fertilizers have destroyed the nutrient composition of the soil. Throw into that equation the seeds themselves have been genetically modified and you can see that we have absolutely NO chance of growing nutrient dense crops! Because of the mass distribution networks, things like fruit are being harvested long before they have ripened, this in itself is a huge problem as the bulk of the nutrients are naturally formed in the final stages the ripening process. They then sit in storage for long periods (losing more of the little nutrients they have) before being artificially ripened to appeal to the consumer. End result is a nutrient inferior fruit!

Meat and dairy is just another fucking basket case altogether. With a combination of caging the animals, feeding them toxic garbage, pumping them full of hormones to grow bigger quicker, and antibiotics to keep them alive, the end result at the supermarket is a low-grade cut of meat that is crammed full of toxins and severely nutrient deficient. If you are not purchasing certified grass-fed, hormone free, antibiotic free meat you are bat shit crazy!

As for milk, well, unless you are a fucking baby cow I don’t see the need for you to be touching the stuff! Humans are designed to be reared on human breast milk, plain and fucking simple! After that point there is no need for a human being to require a milk product again for their entire lifespan.

So how do we turn this all around and head down the path of disease free optimal health? First we need to eliminate the toxins we are ingesting and being exposed to environmentally, then we need to go about restoring our cells with the nutrients they have been denied for far too long. My recommendation to get you on the right track would be to seek out a holistic practitioner that recognizes the practice of Nutrient therapy, or, if you have the time and motivation, educating yourself through reading is never a bad idea.

I am still optimistic that we have not yet hit the point of no return, but we must move quick to change the status quo before human health is fucked forever!

Motivation – You Are Going To Die!

positive-2470506__340

YES, that is all the motivation any human being should ever need to propel them towards what it is they want to achieve. We all know no one makes it out alive, but what we can control is the quality of life we get to experience while still above ground.

Unfortunately, we have created such a rainbows and unicorns society that no one can take advice or criticism without feeling like it is a personal attack. This in turn has also created a “victim” mentality, where no one wants to be accountable for their own actions. Blaming others for your shit state of health is a cop-out at best, and unless you have been tied down and force feed for years the buck ultimately stops with you.

Yes I know, those evil fast food outlets are everywhere, they are convenient, cheap and taste sooo good right? But they are not kicking your door down 3 times a day and shoveling their product down your throat at gun point!

I have absolutely no problem (when asked) telling people they are overweight. As far as I am concerned, by not saying it, I am facilitating their distorted take on reality. A big dose of reality is exactly what is needed to ignite that fire to take action. Every day you delay the start point, the harder it will become.

As with any change, it is a process and will take time. The secret lies in learning to enjoy the day-to-day journey, and not become fixated on the result.

“I lack motivation” is what the lazy use to justify their laziness. YOU LACK BASIC DISCIPLINE! You are essentially saying to yourself, “I’m sorry body, but I disrespect you so much that I want you to suffer through an agonizing existence”.

If you think you lack motivation, I strongly suggest you pay a visit to those lying in a hospital bed right now who also “lacked motivation” and are now full of regret that they allowed disease and illness to ravage their body because they simply couldn’t be fucked.

You are going to hurt either way, you either have the pain of discipline, or the pain of regret! Now, it is up to you which you choose, but know this, you, and only you, have the power to decide which pain it is you endure. Choose wisely.

I am lucky enough to draw on my unique life experience where it was always a case of you just ‘shut the fuck up and get shit done’ type of environment. Regardless of what situation you find yourself in, mindset can be changed over time with repeated bouts of ACTION!

Doing, will ALWAYS trump thinking about it! So that day you can’t be fucked is the EXACT day you should eat cleaner then ever and haul your ass to the gym! Because each little win like that sets a precedent and lays the foundation for positive action taking in the future.

It has been said in the past that I lack compassion; this is not the case at all (well maybe a little). I lack patience and empathy for those that are not willing to help themselves. You must be able to display a willingness to hold up your side of the bargain before expecting anyone to give up their time and energy to help you.

Start forming habit’s TODAY that will aid in improving and, ultimately extending your life! Only you can do the work required to make the change you desire. So get off your ass and make that start right now!
