My neighbor Mike stopped by recently to vent about coronavirus lockdowns.
I noticed he hadn’t been driving his Jeep Cherokee lately, so I asked him what happened? He told me that he blew a head gasket in his engine, and he’s working on getting it fixed.
What happened was Mike was running low on coolant, and instead of buying more and filling it up, he used water instead—which he says you can do temporarily. The water was working fine, so he put off buying coolant in the name of convenience.
But this shortcut eventually cost him.
A hot summer day in Virginia came by, and the water could not hold up in 100-degree weather. The gasket blew and cost him $1,200 to have his engine rebuilt. But when he got it back and installed it in his car, it still didn’t work! So he bought an old Honda Civic to use while he figured out what was wrong.
Mike ended up creating an expensive problem that could have been avoided with $15 and a few minutes of his time. This is summed up in the adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
“Our Body is Our Vehicle for This Life”
The same thing happens with our health when we fail to provide our body with the materials it needs to function optimally. We end up creating costly and painful complications that we could have avoided by putting a little extra time and energy into self-care. Some of the ways we ignore our body’s needs are:
- Instead of preparing nourishing meals, we eat refined and packaged foods that are devoid of nutrients.
- Instead of resting when we are tired, we use caffeine and other stimulants to keep going.
- Instead of eating regular meals, we skip breakfast and eat on the run.
- Instead of getting enough sleep (9-10 hours), we stay up late and wake up prematurely to an alarm clock.
- Instead of living within our means, we take on more than we can handle.
Sooner or later, we become tired, burned out, and depressed—impairing our ability to lead a meaningful life.
So how do you recover your health after years of neglect? How can you maintain your health against all odds in the 21st century? Is it possible to overcome health problems that “have no cure”? Is there a higher standard of health?
The purpose of this website is to explore these questions.
Since 2015, I’ve been teaching people how to resolve their health problems without drugs or other toxic remedies. I’ve learned a lot over the last several years, which I will share on this blog. Some of the topics that I will be posting about include:
- Toxic Metals
- Mental and Emotional Healing
