Grow Young!

Have you ever said to yourself; “If I would have known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” I know I’ve said it in the past. Work hard and play hard is a common philosophy, and it is a good one too. The problem is that many people confuse playing hard with making poor choices. You know, the ones you later regret. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, and that someone is usually you. The reality is… life is a gift! We should all live as if this was our last day on earth, but plan as if we will live to be a hundred.

The foundation for all happiness is your emotional state and your emotional state is directly dependent on your body being in healthy balance. If your body is wasting all it’s time fighting for survival, fending off illnesses, and diseases, stress and anxiety, you will not be capable of living life to it’s fullest.

There is a direct correlation between youth and happiness. Why is that? Although there are always exceptions, most children are (or were) energetic and happy. Think about it. How many 8 year olds smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs, stay up at night worrying about bills, or engage in other self destructive behavior? Not many.

Most kids are (or were) active and are (or were) encouraged to eat properly and drink plenty of fluids. So as children we are encouraged to be active, stay hydrated; eat healthy and live with a minimum of stress. Hmm, sounds like healthy living, doesn’t it? As we grow older and are conditioned into mainstream  society of processed foods and poor eating habits, desk jobs, and the financial stress of keeping up, we start to lose that energy and carefree happiness of our youth.

But something else also happens: we slowly start to build up acid and toxins in our bodies. It takes time, years usually, for us to slowly start to poison ourselves. We literally begin rotting from the inside out. That is why it goes unnoticed until it reaches the breaking point and symptoms of disease start to show up such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Some of us are genetically inclined to diseases and if you keep your body in an acidic and toxic state long enough and you have a genetic weakness in a particular area, then that is where you are probably going to develop problems. Your body will sacrifice the weakest area in the hopes that the rest can survive.

Food, fluids, movement and relaxation are medicine, and when you realize that, you can start turning back the clock and take control of your health.
