Clean, green, healthy New Zealand… Not.

Besides leading the world in rugby, New Zealand can claim some other extraordinary achievements.

  • We lead the world in rates of bowel cancer in women.
  • We have the second highest rate of strokes.
  • We have the second highest rates of hip fractures.
  • We have one of the highest rates of obesity.
  • We have the fourth highest rate of diabetes.
  • We have the fifth highest rate of breast cancer in women.
  • We have the sixth highest rate of heart disease.

We also place extremely well in the following categories: osteoporosis, arthritis, asthma, ADHD, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, infertility and many others.

I think a good question is to ask ‘why?’.

We may have to go back a few million years for the answer. Our bodies have evolved on the basis of receiving certain nutrients and not being exposed to certain toxins.

Suddenly in the last 100 years we have assaulted our bodies with toxic materials, herbicides, pesticides, radiation, chemicals, electro magnetic fields and chronic stress. We put them in our mouth, on our skin and in our houses.

In addition we do not support our bodies with the nutrients they need, sufficient sleep, suitable exercise, relaxation and appropriate stimulation.

As a result the body stores more and more toxins, eats into its energy and nutrient reserves and eventually breaks down with disease.

Our bodies give us so many signs that they are succumbing to disease, but we either do not recognise them or ignore them.

Lack of energy, gas bloating, headaches, bad skin, brain fog, aches and pains and a host of other symptoms are not normal.

Your body is talking and, in some cases, screaming at you.

We have been conditioned to visit a doctor when we break down. Invariably the doctor prescribes a drug, but the vast majority of drugs treat symptoms, not causes. They also come with side effects.

Think about it, the body does not break down because it is deficient in a drug. As we age, we accept a cocktail of drugs on a daily basis, as normal. We come to think of certain diseases as inevitable. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Good health, feeling well and aging well is a choice. It is a choice you get to make every day of your life. You can settle for being one of the above statistics or you can live life to the full , retaining youthful looks, vigour and a bright alert mind. It is a decision to be made today.
