What You Eat And Drink On A Daily Basis Determines Your Health

It’s Not Rocket Science

I am no doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV or anywhere throughout social media. I’m just an all-around health-conscious guy who is always seeking out, researching, and willing to share any information regarding attaining and maintaining optimum physical, mental, psychological, emotional and spiritual health. So, before you implement anything I say, write or suggest here or anywhere, on any of my blogs or posts on Medium.com, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, etc, you should always first consult with your physician, psychologist, therapist or clergy to ensure any such suggestion is the proper path for you. Because we’re all different.

With that said, it is my belief and experience that our physical bodies are sacred temples, and we must respect them on a daily basis. Doing so, or not doing so, determines our health, for better or for worse.

It’s not rocket science.

Explained another way: If we somehow experience a cut on the exterior of our skin, we have to treat that abrasion with some form of ointment or aloe vera gel, etc.

Well, guess what?

When we have an injury of some nature on the interior of our bodies, caused either by a developing disease or an improper diet, we have to treat that issue as well.

But how do we do that? We can’t just put some ointment inside our colon as easily as we place ointment across a cut on our skin, right?

Of course not.

But if we’re having a digestive issue of any kind, one of the best ways to help heal that issue, is to ingest the proper foods and drinks.

And let me be clear: this strategy is for those who are born healthy, and then develope a digestive issue, disease, or disorder from improper eating and drinking habits.

The proper eating/drinking strategy on a daily basis is always a good thing, but with specific regards to healthy individuals who are have developed health challenges due to do the ingestion of improper meals and liquids.

This strategy does not apply to those who were born with physical disorders or disease. That’s another matter altogether.

I just wanted to make that clear.

But for those who have been eating and drinking junk foods and liquids, or for those who have over-done-it with an excessive amount of improper foods or drinks (pick your poison!), you can restore and maintain your health by respecting your body temple by eating and drinking healthy foods and liquids.

It really is that simple.

Your health will not be restored overnight. In fact, sometimes it will take years to restore the health of your body temple.

But one thing is for sure:

What you do on a daily basis will determine your health and your healing.

It’s not as though you can’t have a cupcake every once and a while.

But a donut and fried chicken on a daily basis?


Healthy foods. Healthy drinks. Exercise. Positive thinking. Love and forgiveness of all who hurt us. Keeping our physicians informed.

All of it combined, on a regular basis, leads and maintains our health.

Again, it’s not rocket science.
