Another email came in today from someone happy to find information about adrenal fatigue. She was looking for something for her husband because he was having so many problems — 35 of the 50 symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
The doctors found that he was really low in testosterone, so they boosted it to the levels of a teenage boy. Still no energy in this guy at all. Argh! I could go on for hours about the dumb things they teach at med school!
She was happy to find something that might help him out. She’s thinking Adkins diet modified with fruit that he likes. Fruit because he won’t eat vegetables. He does eat a lot of junk food especially those packaged cupcake things, McDonald’s and sodas.
My response was that diet is everything when healing. Her husband could not expect to get better unless he stopped eating junk.
There’s really no other way.
And, I’m afraid that is likely to include the fruits he likes, like bananas, red apples, grapes, oranges and other sweet fruit — it’s all sugar.
A friend of mine was trying to get his mother to see me. She kept putting it off and making excuses. Finally he asked her what was up. She said that she was afraid I’d tell her to stop eating ice cream. He asked her, “Mom, would you rather feel good or eat ice cream?”
She didn’t even have to think about it, said she’d rather eat ice cream.
It’s just like that for some people. They have a choice, and should be allowed to make it — what else could you possibly do?
I understand, I really do. I used to be terrible. I was lucky I guess, I almost died when I was young enough to fully recover. All do to junk.
When I was about seven I started telling everyone I was going to live to be 100. A long and healthy life is still important to me. Much more important than my taste buds. So I found a healer who taught me how to achieve that childhood goal.
Now you have an idea why I am so into natural health. My views are pretty different from the main stream, but they are what brought me and hundreds of others back to full health, so I present on this site.
I can’t believe that I used to think I was doing fine with the amount of processed foods I was eating. Worst, it wasn’t obvious at all until serious symptoms showed up.
The fact is, humans simply did not evolve to eat junk! And, it’s impossible to go from being ill to health while eating it.
On the other hand, what is life without a little enjoyment? Having a little treat from time to time is fine for those who are healthy. But, for those on the mend, it is really important to get your priorities straight.
If you do indulge, use moderation and eat a generally well balanced diet with plenty of fresh vegetables. Add in some regular exercise, and you’ll be practically impervious to the occasional treat.
Of course, it’s your choice.
