Is our food systems killing you?

“Eat your food as medicine,
otherwise you will need to eat your medicine as food.” – Steve Jobs



The first step we’ll take to creating your new happy life is to get your health under control. In order to do this, you will need to understand how our health and food systems are currently working against you and how they are killing you slowly.

Western medicine definitely has a place in our society. Lives are saved every day by modern medicine. Our healthcare system does save lives, but it has become the “quick fix” for Americans. You may have bought into the lie that you need to see a doctor at least once a year even when you are not sick. You do this because your insurance company tells you to, just in case you might have a disease and not feel it. Well, I can tell you that the insurance company has no interest in you being healthy, except that the longer you live, the more money you will make for them. Remember that insurance companies only want to catch cancer early because it will save them money. You may even believe that a “single” pill will heal you, not realizing that one pill begins making unnatural changes to your body that will require more pills to correct.

Your choice

Perfect health is possible through nature, however, this takes time. If you plant a seed (if you have never tried, it’s time you did!), it will take a week for your plant to pop up. Then you wait a month, watching it develop. One day you wake up and, BAM, you have beautiful flowers, or fresh fruit and veggies. The point is that for nature to succeed, you need patience. When you are healing through nature, it may take a little longer for your body to absorb and use the nutrients, but the benefit to your body will last a lifetime. The effects of eating naturally grown foods will provide your body and mind with balanced nutrition.
That one pill you take today will only temporarily make you feel better, and is only targeting a small percentage of your body. A nature-based diet will balance your whole body and immune system naturally, so you won’t need a “temporary” fix. When consuming or medicating with nature you are creating a healthy, balanced environment for your body. You may even stop going to the doctor because you will not get sick. Actually, you may get a cold occasionally; nature gets sick and then bounces back all the time. You are part of nature, so you will bounce back as well. it’s usually best to fight off germs naturally without creating any unwanted, unnatural side effects.

Nature Provides

You can get healthy eating fresh natural foods and eliminate healthcare! But it takes time and dedication. At some point in life, you have to choose between dying a slow painful death by eating industrial foods and taking synthetic drugs, or you can live a long healthy, happy, and abundant life by eating naturally grown foods, and medicating with nature. The choice is yours.
Your key to good health is not taking a pill for every little ailment, and that includes aspirin. I take about ten aspirin a year for migraine. I take it because, in my mind, I believe it will work faster than drinking a cup of white willow bark tea, (aspirin is actually made from the chemical salicin, which is found in white willow bark). In reality, aspirin doesn’t really work any better. It’s primarily a placebo effect. (Google it. That’s a fact!)
A recent study from the National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI) has shown that a placebo pill works as well as pharmaceutical drugs 45% of the time. It’s because many times our minds are just as effective as many synthetic drugs. After researching the placebo effect, I realized that for many health issues, you have a better chance of healing yourself using your mind and eating naturally, than you do taking pharmaceutical drugs.

If you are eating naturally grown fruit, vegetables, and herbs (FV&H), your mind and body will be able to maintain homeostasis. When your body contracts a disease, you will have the ammunition to fight back without creating unnatural side effects. You won’t need to take a pill because you have built up a natural defense system in your body.
If you are putting natural nutrients in your body, most illnesses will not affect your life because you are naturally healthy which helps you to maintain a positive mindset. You will become fearless in your ability to fight off disease. Your mental attitude, along with a healthy diet will provide you with nutrients to fight off germs, bacteria, and viruses, while keeping your mind sharp and positive. Eating a variety of natural foods will not only keep you away from the doctor, it will make you feel happier, creating more positivity in your life without you having to try very hard.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
