What is the Healthiest Diet? The Food You Eat Can Either Kill You or Nourish and Heal You
If you care about your health, please watch this video below... In this video, Dr. Terry Wahls explores why 80% of Americans are deficient in one of our most important nutrients, omega-3's, and 75% are deficient in iodine. She also explains that 2 out of every 3 Americans are deficient in at least 4-6 other vitally important vitamins and essential nutrients.
Dr. Wahls also explains how she finally learned to eat in the healthiest fashion that enabled her to cure her MS and get out of a wheelchair...all because she changed her diet.
I hope you enjoyed Dr. Wahls video. I thought it was very well done and I agree with everything she said basically.
A few highlights from the video:
Notice how it was a hunter-gatherer based diet (paleolithic diet) that cured her illness. She doesn't vilify meats like so many try to do in this day and age...instead she acknowledges that meats raised in a healthy manner (grass-fed meats , organic, wild game, etc) as well as organ meats can be very powerful and essential to our health. If you're interested, you can read more here about why organ meats are the most nutrient-dense healthiest types of meat .
Notice she also talks about the importance of iodine in your diet. She talks about how 75% of Americans are deficient in iodine and don't even know it. This is why wild seafood and also seaweed are so powerful for our health.
Also, there is a picture about 1/3 of the way through the video where Dr. Wahls shows a kitchen of the average American family showing the amount and types of food that they will eat in a typical week. If you notice, almost everything is processed, canned, boxed, or just plain junk food. A healthy kitchen would have none of these foods... instead, a healthy kitchen would contain almost all 1-ingredient foods -- meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, etc.
She also acknowledges the power of BOTH raw and cooked foods... yes, despite what raw foodists will tell you, you don't need to eat 100% of your food as raw to be in perfect health. In fact, cooked food is essential to obtain all of the nutrients we need, just like raw foods are very important too. A balance is optimal.
Dr. Wahls talks about how almost every degenerative disease that you can name can be caused by poor diet, and how they can be reversed by eating in the healthiest manner possible.
All in all, I thought this video was great and something that we should all share with our friends and family to help everyone you know live healthier and happier. To your good health,
