Why Is This Such A Secret?Written by Thomas West
I found Fountain of Youth!
It's not literally key to everlasting youth, but I've discovered how to slow down aging process and start looking and feeling better. It's a simple procedure that involves your mind and your nutrition.
And I can't understand why more people don't get it.
For most of us, our idea of health is something like, "Ok, I'm not sick, I watch what I eat most of time, I try to exercise, I go to doctor and get medications when I can't kick a cold or flu."
We accept that losing our hair, getting wrinkled, getting flabby, and having less energy is just a part of getting older. And yet, we all know some eighty-year-old person who looks fifty and has more energy than we do!
What's their secret? Why do I feel so lousy and they're doing so great?
Is it genetics? Partially, but there's much more to it than that.
How we approach our own bodies and spirit mentally has a profound effect on what we really are. Unfortunately, we allow our doctors, our pharmaceutical companies, and our media to tell us how we should feel.
My mother is a perfect example of someone who is a victim of programming our society puts out there. Her health began to decline rapidly about 5 years ago. She suffers from fibromyalgia, allergies, thyroid disorder, anemia, high cholesterol, and had a tumor removed from her shoulder which has left left half of her body with some serious nerve damage.
She is on twelve, count them, twelve different prescription medications. She spends over $1000 a year on her medicines. To add to that, she has a severe caffiene addiction that requires her to drink a coffee twice a day just to feel "normal."
There is no doubt in my mind that she has health problems that need prescriptions to be moderated. There is also no doubt in my mind that she is mentally dependent on all of these medications, thinking that she's "getting older" and that medication is only answer.
I am a high school band director by trade, a job that demands frequent 15 hour work days. I used to come home stress out, exhausted, and was incapable of enjoying my two toddlers' antics or having a conversation with my wife.
