|Educated Choices or guesswork?
Have you ever purchased a nutritional product, tried it for
several weeks, and then stopped taking it because you "didn't
This is one of the most often used methods people utilize
to make health and nutrition decisions. Unfortunately, it is one
of the biggest mistakes made in personal health assessment. Let
Any diseases or degenerative processes are SLOW in developing
to the point of SYMPTOMS. A perfect example of this is cancer.
The point at which someone begins to notice symptoms is NOT the
point at which the cancer started developing. Research shows that
cancer can take 5-20 years to develop to the point of producing
symptoms. People who eventually develop cancer FEEL healthy and
fine despite the actual developing cancer inside them. How they
"felt" was NOT a very good indicator of their health
The same can be said of ANY type of health problem, even the
common cold. When you begin to develop symptoms of a runny nose,
cough, fever, headache, or whatever, you have already lost the
battle to the virus days before. You "felt" fine until
the symptoms developed. Can you see, then, that using how you
"feel" as your guide to any health program is a dangerous
and VERY misleading method for health decisions?
Along the same lines, the proverbial "testimonial"
for this or that health product is another method used to purchase
products. Have you ever asked yourself, "Why are there testimonials
for virtually EVERY type of health product on the market?"
The health of most people trying the products is so poor that
ANY type of nutritional help will cause some degree of noticeable
improvement. Despite the quality being lacking in over 90% of
these "natural" health products, the body still responds
to receiving even parts of what it needs to be able to make positive
changes, even if there is an actual cost to the body for doing
so. The ubiquitous "testimonial" is another method vast
numbers of people use to make their health and nutrition decisions.
So how DOES one make sound, healthy decisions about what nutritionals
they really need? I will list several of the most important:
Technology is showing us that the natural system is the best
guide to use in making health decisions. If we don't have the
"Perfect Diet," (complete nutritional support the human
body NEEDS to maintain itself in a state of good health) then
we, absolutely, MUST replenish the missing natural elements to
have ANY guarantee of good health now, and in our future. This
and ONLY this (not how we feel) is the best guide we can use in
making sound, personal health and nutrition decisions!
- Have you determined what natural nutrients your body isn't
receiving, but needs, and base any nutrition decision on THAT,
rather than on "how you feel?"
- Is the product you choose completely natural, as nature provides
- Is it free from unnatural additives of any kind?
- If a chosen health product is "isolated from natural
sources," (isolated elements that have a specific affect
on the body and disease processes, such as Cetyl Myristoleate
and arthritis), is it being used in conjunction with a complete
natural nutrition support program, and NOT as the "Magic
Bullet," which doesn't exist?
- Have you utilized the newest technology to actually do nutritional
testing to determine the actual physiological response your
body has to your present lifestyle?
