Health affects us in so many ways – more than we think! Health affects our daily mood. It impacts our social functioning. It can mean the difference between staying alive or succumbing to disease. And yes, it can be a negative distraction or a vehicle for positivity…including prosperity.
Yes – it’s true – the food we consume can make a large difference in whether our bodies ache or not! Pro-inflammatory foods will increase inflammation, thereby accelerating the aging process, contributing to aches and pains in joints and other degenerative disorders, whereas anti-inflammatory foods will have a protective and healing effect. The typical diet in America has too few fruits and vegetables, too many refined grains and sugar, preservatives (of a chemical nature), and we tend to load up on carbohydrates.
