After 30 years in the health and nutrition field, I dare say I’ve heard it all.
I’ve heard countless versions of what people think is a “healthy diet,” I’ve been asked about every diet fad and weight loss supplement known to man and have heard every excuse in the book for someone’s lack of exercise.
That’s OK, because this is why I do what I do. To help people get on the right path and start feeling a lot better! There’s no better motivator than results, and I love to see when my clients have success.
But one of the most frustrating things I’ve faced is to hear someone say it’s too late for them.
They firmly believe they are too far gone to improve their health and/or lose weight.
Many seemed to have been “knocked down” by nay-sayers and had doubts about whether they could truly make a difference in their health.
If this sounds like you, then please listen up, because I have a very important message for you today.
It’s NEVER too late!
It’s never, ever too late to improve your health, regardless of your age or how long you’ve been sick.
No matter where you’re starting from, your body WILL benefit in some way from a healthier lifestyle--that is a certainty.
Adopting healthier habits can lead to some very exciting and unexpected changes like these:
- More regular BMs
- Less heartburn, gas and bloating
- More energy
- Weight loss
- Sleeping more soundly at night
- Fewer aches and pains
- Needing less medication
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
Don’t listen to the nay-sayers
If anyone around you brings you down and tries to tell you that you can’t make a difference in your health, or you’re not good enough or strong enough or smart enough, kindly look them in the eye and say, “You couldn’t be more wrong.”
And then prove them wrong.
I remember someone once told me that my karate sparring skills were terrible.
Mind you, this person’s “fighting experience” consisted of watching Muhammed Ali boxing matches on TV.
Well, my “subpar” fighting skills earned me a black belt in karate back in 2007, and eventually a promotion to 4th degree master blackbelt 10 years later!
Sure glad I didn’t listen to my critic.
Refuse to make excuses
If you allow excuses to enter your mind, you’re done before you start. There is no room for excuses when it comes to improving your health.
Here’s a great quote about excuses:
We make time for the things that we want to make time for, and excuses for everything else.
Make the time for you and your health.
Your 3-step plan to better health at any age!
If you’re ready to make a significant difference in your state of health, here is a very effective 3-step plan that will help turn things around for you.
1- Nourish your body and support sound digestion
The single most disease-preventing, health-enhancing and lifesaving measure you can take is having a nutritious diet of real foods.
If you eat a typical "modern diet" of processed food, fast food or refined carbs, you can count on being sick--it's a given.
Plus, if you have poor digestion, you are opening the door for inflammation-causing wastes to accumulate in your system and make you toxic.
Diseases love a nice, toxic body--they thrive in that environment. This is especially true of cancer.
So it’s essential to eat the foods that give your body the nutrients it needs to fight disease and encourage proper elimination of wastes.
Concentrate on real foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry and fish, eggs, nuts, healthy fats and pure filtered water.
And make your meals easier for your body to break down too! The key lies in what foods you eat together—certain meal combinations are a breeze for your system to tackle, and others are a nightmare!
My Great Taste No Pain system can guide you on exactly what to do.
Great Taste No Pain teaches you the few simple principles you'll need to know to make all of your meals tasty, super nutritious and much easier to digest.
When your body is armed with the nutrients it needs, it can better heal itself and fight disease.
And when your digestion is efficient, you can eliminate toxins, viruses and harmful bacteria like you should, instead of having them be absorbed into circulation and making you sick.
2- Support your immune system
The habits many people have are murder on their immune systems.
Things like junk food, soda, smoking, not getting enough sleep, stress and taking medications all destroy your gut microbiome...
...and since this is where 80 percent of your immune system resides, you may be lacking the protection of the bulk of that immune system!
But a full-spectrum, multi-strain probiotic like Super Shield can help you maintain a health-supporting gut bacterial balance.
Super Shield contains 13 strains of the world's most potent, effective beneficial bacteria found in the human digestive tract. These good guys line the walls of your intestines like an army, ready to fight off dangerous invaders.
Plus Super Shield supports sound digestion and regular BMs...which can mean less gas, bloating, and constipation too!
3- Move your butt
I know. Exercise is a dirty word to a lot of people. But there’s no getting around it—you just can’t replace its health benefits in any other way!
Here are just some of the ways exercise transforms your health:
- Weight management: Regular physical activity helps to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat.
- Decreased heart disease risk: Physical activity strengthens heart muscles, lowers resting heart rate and blood pressure, and improves blood lipids.
- Reduced cancer risk: Being overweight increases a person's risk of cancer, so physical activity can help reduce cancer risk by reducing weight.
- Decreased back pain: Exercise can increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility and posture.
- Lower risk of type 2 diabetes: Regular physical activity can lead to decreases in blood glucose and insulin resistance.
- Healthy bones: Physical activity encourages bone formation and slows the progression of bone loss.
- Enhanced sleep quality: Regular exercise is a natural stress reducer, it improves mood and encourages more restful sleep.
Remember to get your doctor’s OK (especially if you haven’t moved in quite some time) and get moving.
You CAN make a difference--it's never too late
If you are sick, have a disease, are overweight, take multiple medications or all of the above, know this:
You CAN make a difference and help stop disease from taking its toll on you.
It's never too late to help your body develop better health from within.
Give your body the help it needs to give YOU a life free of pain, disease and an endless sea of medications.
To your health,Sherry Brescia
