I think about this often and I am by no means perfect since choosing to make changes in my life. My goal is progress each day rather than perfection. I find moderation is important on my journey so that I can continue to live this lifestyle long-term. I continue to keep an open mind and learn more. YES, there was a time where I really took short cuts in my life related to my health and wellness including a wide variety of feelings that involved 1) thinking there was not enough time in my day, 2) guilt, 3) self-sabotage, 4) fear of failure, and 5) finances. I did not focus my energy on nutrient deficiencies and that nutrient deficiencies can be a cause of my depression and anxiety. What I personally was dealing with then had a domino effect on the way that I was viewing myself, interactions with family, energy levels, etc.
Slight nutrient deficiencies add up over time and can slowly lead to:
– Digestive problems: IBS and Colitis
– Weight gain: Obesity, Diabetes
– Mental imbalances: Anxiety, Depression
– Inflammation: Chronic pain, Arthritis, Dementia, Heart Disease, Stroke
– Premature Aging: Joint pain, Degenerative Diseases
As I pause for a moment, I think about how my life choices are working with me rather than against me. I hope this information helps you too!
