My Thoughts #6
I recently completed a 5 day fast and my perception changed on a lot. The amount of positive energy flow I’ve gotten from fasting is amazing. Recently I got a place in West Palm Beach, FL and from the second I landed here I’ve been eating garbage. I’m not judging anyone’s eating habits but here is what I consider garbage. Going weeks without eating anything beneficial to you but surviving on empty calories. To make it worst, this is mostly the food you crave. Pizza, pasta, snacks, juice, red meat, just to name a few.
After completing this fast here’s is one thing I feel strongly. HEALTH IS NOT AT YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE. Being a cancer survivor I realized that hospitals can sell you a quick solution to mask your problem but they don’t take enough time to promote a healthier lifestyle change for their patients. There’s a lot more they can do to offer a REAL long term solution. I can’t give the blame fully to the medical establishments because the insurance companies do not support these things either.
Insurance should allocate money toward meal planning and exercising alongside the pharmaceuticals. I won’t mention the name of these establishments, but I was feeling a little sluggish everyday, along with other symptoms, and visiting 3 doctors I received 3 diagnosis with 3 different prescriptions. Not one of them mentioned that my lifestyle could be the cause of discomfort. After doing my own research, the only thing constantly coming up was food. Now having fasted 5 days, I don’t feel any of those symptoms any longer. The moral here is don’t rely on medicine and pharmaceuticals dictate your health. Prescriptions lead to profits and being healthy would lead to a decline in the medical worlds. Your body is your temple and you are in full control. Your doctor may have answers but they are not the answer. Eat better, be active, be better. #MontsReal
