Sick Care vs Health Care - Fiber Fueled explorations with Kathy Taylor

I'm so happy that we will be meeting next week to read and discuss Fiber Fueled, by Dr. Will Bulsiewicz. After I finished reading it two years ago, I remember telling myself, "This is my handbook for health!" I knew it would be an essential reference book for personal healing and vitality.

Why read Fiber Fueled now? Dr. B shows us that an overwhelming explosion of scientific research in the last decade proves that eating fiber-rich plant foods will:

· optimize the gut microbiome

· eliminate cravings

· promote weight loss

· balance hormones

· strengthen our immune system

· reduce inflammation and disease

· improve energy levels and brain function

· resolve digestive issues

· prevent certain cancers

· help us feel great inside and out

I spent decades being frantically busy and eating highly processed convenience foods. I ignored the consequences of these choices until my body rebelled loudly enough to get my attention with wide-spread pain and disease including Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, Acid Reflux GERD, obesity, gallbladder surgery, sleep apnea, tendonitis, bursitis, knee surgeries, varicose veins, ADD, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, nine straight months of diarrhea, chronic sinus infections, endometrial cancer, skin rashes, plantar fasciitis and fallen arches.

The cost of taking 14 daily prescription drugs, as well as many over the counter meds and supplements was expensive and also created unwanted side effects!

Transitioning to a Fiber Fueled, Whole Plant Food Lifestyle during the past three years has eliminated ALL of those diseases and medications and helped me lose over 200 pounds! The information in this book is life saving and full of hope!

In our modern society we enjoy many advancements in technology and science. Unfortunately, we have been brain-washed by big business advertising. Shiny, colorful packaging conceals overly processed foods stripped of natural fiber, which Dr. B calls, “the heart and soul of true gut healing.” I no longer want to punish myself with poisons, disguised as food, taking away health with every bite.

Going to the doctor puts us into the “Sick Care System,” not the Health Care System. Traditionally trained doctors “practice medicine,” not disease prevention and nutritional intervention. Since 70% of our immune system resides in the gut, it is essential for us to protect our defenses by eating a broad variety of fresh, whole, fiber-rich foods. In his book, Fiber Fueled, Dr. Bulciewicz shares with us research and case studies which provide us with knowledge, understanding and power to create our own vibrant health.

You matter! Never give up.
