You’ve all heard the expression: “You can’t fix stupid”. Here at Chasing Miracles we believe you can. We believe in achieving wellness instead of repairing illness.
We all make “stupid” choices. Sometimes we make those same bad choices over and over. That is the definition of Insanity: “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”. And one last quote: “We are what we eat”. We KNOW that is true. Just look around you.
You know how people say we start to look like our animals? This is hysterically true and we’ve all enjoyed the photos. Well I believe we also start to look like the food we eat. This is a fact. Test it out next time you are near a crowd of people. I bet you can pick out the ones who are eating CLEAN and the ones who are not. You know the opposite of CLEAN is DIRTY right? Let’s stay on that visual for a while. If we are what we eat, and the opposite of clean is dirty then what are you putting into your body every day?
Have you convinced yourself that artificial sweeteners are okay? Well they aren’t. Your body recognizes them as poison so every time you consume them and other “foods” that are actually CHEMICALS, your body thinks you are trying to kill it. I have this picture of a bunch of minions running around the inside of your body screaming: “All hands on deck-fire on level 6!”. And while these little guys are trying to put the fire out, other gears inside your body that might need a little grease and oil (Can anyone say Essential Fatty Acids?), are suffering because all the focus is on putting out the fire.
Think about what you consume. How CLEAN is your food? What choices do you make on a daily basis that you can change? Don’t put limits on your life. Live Your Life Without Limits. Take control back of your body and your health.
The information is out there and available to each of us. Try googling “popcorn”. The fact that corn today is not really CORN as our ancestors knew it, here is a short list of what’s in that stuff that smells so amazing:
What is TBHQ you ask? I did too. Here is what Natural News has to say:
TBHQ is used in many foods, ranging from crackers to crisps to fast foods. It is also found in certain brands of pet foods, as well as in cosmetic and baby skincare products, varnish, lacquers and resins. It is used in the stabilisation process of explosive compounds. The risks and side-effects of this preservative product far outweigh the benefit of it being used as a highly unsafe preservative ingredient.
Tertiary Butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ as it is more commonly referred to as, is in fact a chemical preservative which is a form of butane. It is used in foodstuffs to delay the onset of rancidness and greatly extends the storage life of foods. It’s no wonder that certain fast foods and convenience foods seem to last a lifetime on the shelf these days.
The FDA allows amounts of up to 0.02% of the total oils in food to be TBHQ. This may not sound like a lot, but it does tend to make one wonder why there needs to be a limit on the amount if it is apparently a ‘harmless additive.’ Mind you, anything which derives its origins from butane could hardly be classified as safe, no matter how small the dose.
Consuming high doses (between 1 and 4 grams) of TBHQ can cause nausea, delirium, collapse, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and vomiting. There are also suggestions that it may lead to hyperactivity in children as well as asthma, rhinitis and dermatitis. It may also further aggravate ADHD symptoms and cause restlessness. Long term, high doses of TBHQ in laboratory animals have shown a tendency for them to develop cancerous precursors in their stomachs, as well as cause DNA damage to them. It is also suggested that it may be responsible for affecting estrogen levels in women.
This seems to be quite an extensive list of side-effects for such a seemingly innocent preservative, although warning bells should immediately ring if the FDA has to impose apparent ‘safe’ limits on an additive. Being they’re butane based, it may also be wise to take a few steps back from that barbecue flame while consuming your crisps. Definitely, this is an additive that should be avoided at all costs.
And let’s not even talk about the bag microwave popcorn is popped in.
Are you willing to take a chance on putting these ingredients into your body?
Remember the statement: “You can’t fix stupid”?
Giving your body the nutrients and tools it needs to be able to stay healthy, heal itself and keep you on a track of clean is vital today. It is also simple to do.
According to Clean Living Magazine:
Eating Clean makes you smarter. It saves you money. You will live longer. You will have better relationships. You will have more energy. You will help the planet. You’ll be stronger and You’ll be Happier.
Our very own Tommie Weber has taught us that we need to treat the inside of our bodies the same way we treat the outside.
“We use soap and water for the outside so how did we get to the point of it being okay to wash the inside of our bodies with carbonated drinks, high sugar drinks and high volumes of caffeine?”
Let’s fix stupid!
I added Balance to my daily routine to help my body absorb nutrients better. I’m giving myself an advantage over those choices we all make that are not necessarily “good choices”. I am feeding my body the tools it needs to help me maintain an alkaline rich environment.
