What Is Freedom?

I can answer that question in three words. Health is freedom.

Have you ever thought about what your life would be like if you didn't have your health?
What if you couldn't work to support yourself or your family?
What if you couldn't do the things you now enjoy doing on your time off from work?
What if you were so incompacitated you had to depend on someone else to dress, feed and bathe you?

When we take good health for granted and our healthstyle incorporates primarily nutrient poor foods and a lack of exercise we set ourselves up for a variety of "lifestyle diseases". The it-won't-happen-to-me or the I'll-start-eating-better-tomorrow attitudes are the most dangerous attitudes you can have. Why? Because the human body can withstand an amazing amount of nutritional abuse; but when Mother Nature says "Enough" ..... times up. You don't have time to procrastinate. Mother Nature plays by HER rules not yours.

Illness is a prison. I know. I've been there. It's way harder to get well then to stay well. But I did it! Life with choices is oh so much better. Life with the stamina abd strength to do all the things you enjoy is priceless. Life with health is life with the freedom to become all that you can.

Take it from me the freedom to be you is worth more than money.
