I created this blog and my Twitter account mainly to promote our home based business. But my blog seems to have morphed into something bigger. I have written several blogs about the GC Control shakes that I still drink daily. They are still doing a great job in lowering my blood sugar level when it’s high. I’ve been drinking them for a year and a half now. Note, I am not touting the shakes as some sort of miracle cure. I know diabetics are often targeted by snake oil salesmen offering some form of miracle cure. But the GC Control shakes are an excellent tool to help you control your blood sugar levels.
Recently I became a vegetarian. I then quickly moved on to become a vegan. My reasons are mainly ethical: As an animal lover I could no longer just I ft to myself eating meat. I’ve already written blogs that go into this. But I have noticed that there are plenty of health reasons for making the switch. I’ve already lost a few pounds and I find I have more energy.
As my blog is called 4 Paths To Wellness I feel this would be a good time to delve into what those four paths are:
More people these days are looking at their diet and realizing there is a connection between what they eat and how they feel. The vegan lifestyle is becoming more popular, as evidenced by the growing number of vegan foods that are becoming available in mainstream grocery stores. I was amazed the other night at the array of vegan options in our local Stop and Shop. Vegan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and even ice cream!
Gyms have always been popular. People want to get in shape. Obesity has become an epidemic. Diseases like diabetes are consquently on the rise. There is a definite need to take care of our health. We need to take back our Wellness!
Diet and exercise are part of two paths to Wellness. Personal and physical. But so many people overlook the third path; environmental. This can have more of a detrimental impact on our health than we realize. We don’t pay enough attention to the cleaning products we bring into our homes and use daily. Products that contain so many harmful chemicals and toxins. We have a real toxic stew in our homes and we don’t even realize it! Respiratory illnesses, like asthma, and skin conditions, like eczema, are on the rise. Most of them are triggered by the chemicals in the store bought cleaning products. We’re conditioned to go on buying them. Mainly because everyone else does and because we don’t know any better.
There is another way!
While most people are thinking more about two paths to Wellness, personal and physical, we offer a way to align all four paths and help you to create a life in balance.
