Have you ever heard something and immediately could feel the fire ignite in your belly!?
This morning while starting my work day I was listening to the radio and heard one of the political platforms talking about the importance of having a guaranteed income for everyone no matter what their age etc so they can afford to buy healthy foods.
In Ontario we already do have assistance for those who need it – do changes need to be made – YES – however that is not what ignited the fire in my belly!
I detest how the government politicians come out with these solutions to fix these “problems” without even looking deep at what the REAL problem actually is!
The government is the sole entity who approves what is allowed in our foods and products (beauty etc). The government holds the control to say NO to the crap that is going into and onto our bodies with the food we eat and the products we use daily in our homes. The government has chosen to approve these ingredients that ARE causing harm to our brain, body AND the environment. Even products the government has allowed to be classed as ORGANIC… do not have to be 100% organic to make this claim!
The government has the power to stop this, however their solution is another make work project and assuming that giving people more money will make them choose healthier choices.
I have REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE of how removing these chemical and toxin filled products from your home CAN make an impact.
I have and my loved ones have INVISIBLE ILLNESSES that are directly affected by the ingredients approved by our government to be in our food, beauty and cleaning products.
I have been CHALLENGED WITH DEPRESSION and loved ones with MENTAL ILLNESS.
I have INVESTED IN MYSELF & MY FAMILY to make healthier choices in our home and everyday life.
I have EXPERIENCED THE VALUE OF CHOOSING HEALTHY.
Yes healthy is an investment – however being unhealthy and ill is a much heavier cost to your bank account, your body, your mind and our health care!
Its not about a QUICK FIX – its about creating a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!
Over years of eating convenience foods, taking prescription drugs (which many just treat the symptom not the actual problem), drinking, smoking etc causes a build up in your body. This is a toxin filled build up which prevents your body from properly absorbing the nutrients from our foods. Someone could eat the healthiest organic diet, however if they have had previous years of using toxin filled products, taking prescriptions ( which yes are needed at certain times ) the nutrients will not properly absorb. How do I know this because I’VE LIVED IT!
If you are looking for a quick fix – this is what the government is trying to sell you on. This is not the solution. Ive been there. I was someone who was desperate to loose weight and I tried fad diets, products that promise (and give) quick weight loss results… these aren’t real solutions especially when many of these quick fix weight loss products include many of these products that are not good for us!
What do I feel the proper solution is?
Educating people on what LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is, banning toxic ingredients from our food, cleaning and beauty products and actually standing up to create a LONG TERM SOLUTION vs a QUICK FIX!
This is what I decided for my life and my family. Saying NO to quick fix and actually EDUCATING myself and my family on supporting a healthy body. What Ive found is when supporting a healthy body in a healthy way, when you do indulge in something that isn’t as healthy for you – your body can rebound much quicker!
Healthy makes a happy brain and body which positively impacts
our mental and physical health!
