“I don’t know how people can live out there. It is thirty miles on dirt roads to the nearest doctor.” This comment sums up our society’s view of health and health care. We have accepted as “fact” that our health has more to do with our proximity to the doctor than with our own actions. We do not relish the idea of socialized medicine, but we have wholeheartedly embraced the concept of socialized disease and death. By our choice we are eating ourselves to sickness and to the grave.
You can find abundant information documenting how and why refined sugars deplete your immune system. Even so, on all social occasions, be it church potlucks or family gatherings, we serve sugar. The more beloved you are, the more likely you are to be offered this poison.
Fifteen or sixteen years ago, my wife and I eliminated all refined sugars, including honey, from our diet. My daughter, a toddler at the time, stopped getting ear infections. My son, who was a baby, never got any. Soon after that, we added AFA algae and probiotics to our diet.
Sitting up at night to care for a sick child is nearly absent from our family experience. We haven’t had to put up with “endless” days of runny noses and feeling miserable.
We are totally odd because our children have never had a piece of candy. Their idea of a treat is freshly picked peas or just pulled carrots. Everyone is quite concerned about us saying, “How will they learn to fit into society? How will they ever become socialized?”
Not to worry. They can say, “No thank you,” quite politely. And the socialization in the doctor’s waiting room is worth missing.
