Why Disease and Sickness?

Disease has invaded every aspect and part of the world in which we live. America spends more per capita on health care than any other country, and yet our health continues to fall. Most people will find themselves struggling with the ‘common cold’ each year or perhaps take a week or two off of work due to the flu or some other type of illness. You probably know someone who is obese or a family member who is fighting against cancer or heart disease.

The sad truth is that this really isn’t ‘normal’ for our bodies to be sick. It’s ironic because all this pain and sadness can be easily prevented if we just changed our diet and our lifestyle. In fact, half of us don’t even know what true health feels like or the miraculous things our bodies are capable of doing.

Going to a doctor is pretty much pointless as they recommend the option that will make them more money. Not only that, but they are focusing on a small part of the bigger picture at hand and at the cost of your health. This is why I want to be a nutritionist/wellness coach (or I’m headed in that direction anyways).

My recommendation for America is to take an interest in their health and wake up. Here are some resources that I have collected that prove that a low-fat plant based diet is the way to live a long life full of happiness and energy.

These are books that I highly recommend that you read if you have any interest in your health and preventing disease:

-“The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II, MD

-“Whole” by T. Colin Campbell, PhD

-“The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World” by John Robbins

-“The Face on Your Plate: The Truth About Food” by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

-“The 80/10/10 Diet” by Dr. Douglas Graham

Here are some additional resources from Youtube that I have linked for you below:



-Megan Elizabeth (Youtube) and

-Kat Green

-FoodnSport (Doug Graham's 811rv Youtube channel)

-Arnold’s WayChannel

I hope that you find these resources to be of help to you whether you are interested in health or just curious. My goal is to share with you what I've discovered about life and hope that you take this information and apply it to your own life as well. I strongly encourage you to read the books listed above as each one has very important information in it that might help to save your life. And i often find myself visiting these youtube channels for guidance and inspiration for my own life. I hope that you find them inspirational as well.
