What are we doing wrong in America?
1. Standard American Diet-too much sugar, eating the wrong kinds of fat, not eating nutrient dense food.
2. Toxins Everywhere
3. Not resolving emotional traumas
Unresolved emotions can cause physical changes in our bodies. Use techniques such as The Emotion Code, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Reiki to release them.
4. Gut issues that lead to not absorbing the foods that we are eating.
What cause gut issues?
In this country, independence is stressed over community. As people start their own families, they lose touch with their immediate family or friends.
As people age, friends and family members die and people don't visit as much. Loneliness can actually weaken your immune system.
6. Vitamin Deficiencies
Due to the growing practices for food in this country, our foods don't have the nutrients that they once did. Even if you eat the healthiest diet, you will still have to supplement.
What supplements should everyone take?
Consult your doctor if you are on medication before starting to supplement
2. Vitamin D that has E, A and K in it
3. Vitamin C taken in divided doses throughout the day (Check out doctoryourself.com to see some of the diseases that can be reversed from taking certain doses of vitamin c.)
