For the month of January I decided to do a digestive system health awareness campaign.
Having moved from nutrition simply because people will not avoid the foods and drinks that make them sick, I moved onto the mind stuff.
But recently I realised that the emotions can be all over the shop because of the digestive systems stress, so I can teach people to change how they feel but they are fighting a losing battle if their gut is knackered.
Awareness is the key, we have to understand how our digestive system affects us and what better way to do it than to try?
So dry/high January was born. I have been amazed at the response and delighted. Great interaction but also tells me that people are recognising things have to change.
Our current lifestyles kill us. Brutal but true. Slowly but none the less it is not conducive to a long, happy, healthy life.
Things have to change and we have to change them.
Its not rocket science or great hardship to look after this amazing body we inhabit for our life on Earth.
80 trillion cells that need pretty much exactly the same as plants do.
Water, sun, good soil, attention and love.
We are running around like a bunch of headless chickens to pay our overheads, too tired to eat well, too tired to exercise, too tired to communicate effectively with anyone.
We know deep down things have to change, and we have to change them.
Do you need great food to be happy. Not really, but boy does it help. It gives you the biggest foot up the ladder. And it prevent disease and helps the body with the task of healing. Tamper with Mother Nature at your peril.
Talking about her, get out and enjoy this Planet during this time. Breathe in the oxygen, take in the scenery, and depending on where you live, get into the sea if possible.
Connect in the forests and mountains, places that man has not spoiled or polluted.
My friend is staying with me for the month buddying up for high and dry. She has also stopped smoking and we are hiking round Malta. She has blown me away with her attitude. She has just done it! Amazing what we can achieve when we make the decision.
That's what its all about.
Hang out with others who are taking action and waking up.
As the first week of the detox ends I want to thank everyone for their participation and I am really hoping that everyone who has gets the natural high soon and this level of energy and enthusiasm continues.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Here is to your health and happiness, it's an inside job.
