What most people just don't realize is, when you EAT the right foods, your body will HEAL itself...it really is as simple as that. Pills do not "cure" chronic diseases, they only "mask" the condition. For instance, if you have high blood pressure, the doctor will start you on a medication to bring down your pressure. But, what happens when you stop the medication? Of course, your pressure will go right back up again....so what's changed? Nothing. Nothing has been done to STOP the problem that's causing the high blood pressure to begin with. People don't just "get" high blood pressure, there is no REASON for it. We must get to the ROOT of the problem, correct it, and then the problem goes away. I'm not only talking about blood pressure, but the same is true for type 2 diabetes, GI conditions, heart disease, high cholesterol,etc., etc., etc.
So many people just do not know this information. Unfortunately, many physicians are not aware of the power of nutrition as they were not trained in nutrition while in medical school. Physicians are trained to diagnose a disease and prescribe a medication--again, it's a huge win for the pharmaceutical companies--that's why they are one of the richest most powerful industries in this country.
When you eat a diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes, (beans, peas and lentils), your body will be getting all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, etc., that it needs to function, and guess what? Your body starts to repair damage that may have been done and you start to FEEL better--the side effect of this, WEIGHT LOSS.
