Is your food hurting you?
The body will often crave things which we give up, especially if they are not good for us, because it has become ADDICTED to the bad stuff and chemicals in it, in the case of cows milk all the vaccines and antibiotics that are pumped into the cows.
I have noticed, even in a few days of not drinking cows milk, the eczema on my hands clearing up, which I have long suspected is caused by dairy. To me, eczema or any other manifestation on the outside is only the outspill of not good stuff on the inside. And goodness knows what’s going on on the inside.
I have suspected dairy for quite a long time, in fact I had fairly strong evidence to support my suspicion. However, I have struggled to find a suitable alternative. There are alternatives out there, but I tried several of them and found I didn’t like them in a cup of tea, or on cereal. You can get soya, almond, hazelnut, rice milk etc. but I think I have found one that satisfies my needs and taste buds in coconut milk.
If you have health issues, listen to your body, question its cravings and addictions, what you think you love to eat could be the very thing that’s hurting you. It could be anything from chinese food to soda drinks to chewing gum.
Common culprits are things like MSG, used to enhance the flavour of food, artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, and many more.
Start checking your labels. The less chemicals in a food, the better it will be for you.
If you really crave a food, you can bet your bottom dollar it has something in it that’s not very good for you. After all, when was anyone addicted to an apple or an avocado? By the way, they would be exceptionally good things to try and become addicted to!
It can be difficult to give up food we think we enjoy eating, but if we make a conscious decision to love our bodies, we can ask ourselves “Do I really want to give my lovely body this thing which will hurt it?”.
Would you do that to a loved one? Why do it to yourself?Is your food hurting you?
