I grew up on wholesome food and like most kids when they leave home I got off that path for awhile. We raised our kids on a mixture of wholesome foods with refined foods, which is likely better than the majority of the people today. At this point in my life we are back to eating wholesome homemade foods and are healthier for it.
We are hearing in the news more about the swine flu, what are the schools going to do about it, and how fast can the government get the swine flu shot to everyone? My husband's employer was giving free flu shots one year so he got the vaccine, and he along with everyone else got the flu. The next year they were giving the flu shots again and he didn't get the shot, but everyone in his department got the shot and again got the flu. The following year after that nobody wanted to get it again, they figured it out. If you get the flu shot you get the flu.
If you know anything about the flu or any other sickness, it is your immune system that protects you. How do you maintain a good immune system? Pure and simple it is eating a wholesome diet along with whole food vitamins and minerals that keep your immune system strong. People with good immune systems rarely get sick. I am not worried about health care, we rarely visit a doctor going years between visits. Instead of spending so much money on health insurance we get a high deductible insurance plan which leaves us the bulk of the money to invest in ourselves by eating high quality foods and herbs.
Hormone free meats, eggs and dairy products are getting easier to find and worth the extra money because many people are getting sick from the overload of hormones in these foods. Buy organic produce when you can and eat 75% fresh fruits and vegetables with the remainder being cooked foods and grains. Use healthy oils such as olive oil and coconut oil. If you haven’t used coconut oil you are in for a very pleasant surprise because it makes everything taste so good and it is great for your skin too. We have amazingly low pricing on coconut oil with a flat rate shipping of $10.00 for up to 4 gallons of oil shipped in the continental US.
