I know, I know, you saw the word Vegan and thought, “There is no way I’m giving up meat.” Oddly enough that very statement is at the core of what I’m tackling in today’s post. If a friend said to you, “Man, I can’t give up alcohol” how would you respond? What if they said they “I can’t give up” an illegal drug? Of course you’d see this as a problem, and you should. They’d obviously have an addiction that should be addressed as soon as possible.
Food for thought…[pun intended].
Question: “Why does the American Cancer Society recommend that all cancer patients reduce their meat intake?”
Answer: Because they recognize that the less meat you eat, the less likely the cancer will continue to grow! Am I saying you must give up meat in order to be healthy? Absolutely not.
However, I do want you to consider this story.
My wife and I became vegan in 2009. She was suffering from high blood pressure and was told by a Dr. that she had a certain type of cancer. The doctor insisted that she have surgery immediately. My wife decided to go the natural route instead and gave up meat and processed foods. I was looking for a way to get back in shape so I joined her on her journey.
Months later there was no sign of cancer. Also, my bursitis stopped, my sinusitis was gone, and my memory improved greatly. Other than my wife’s initial doctor visit and two follow ups, we didn’t spend much money. There were no other doctor visits to pay for, no specialists, no surgery cost and no prescriptions to fill. We just ate the right foods, filled with the nutrients that fight cancer and other sicknesses.
I believe it was Plato who said, “Let food be thy medicine.” There’s also an old Chinese proverb that says, “He who neglects diet wastes the time of his doctor.” Maybe those who came before us knew something we have forgotten. Being in the best health helps us avoid costly sicknesses, visits to the doctor, the ER, and those high-cost medical procedures. Don’t just take my word for it. I highly advise you to conduct your own research. On sites such as YouTube you can view the stories of many folks who have had experiences similar to that of me and my wife. What you’ll see is eye-opening!
Here’s to your physical and fiscal health.
