First thing is first, if you want to heal your body which most of us would agree is most important; our quality of life. In my own journey to heal my body, which I will get into specifics later in this post. I want to highly encourage everyone to commit to eating 100% organic, non GMO foods only. This is extremely important if you want to start the journey of healing your body. Why? Here are a few reasons, organic food does not contain chemicals, antibiotics, or growth hormones. If you want a more in-depth look at why to eat organic https://www.helpguide.org/articles/healthy-eating/organic-foods.htm
Lets keep it simple, do you want any of that in your body? Before my journey began to find a holistic approach to healing the digestive issues I was having I didn’t think organic was a big deal but putting chemicals in my body was causing inflammation in my joints and GI issues that I could not resolve until I started to change my diet.
In addition to that we also need to avoid additives that are potentially harmful to our bodies, for example, carrageenan, its in many items deemed USDA organic however the truth about carrageenan is that it causes inflammation, cancer, GI issues, and immune suppression to name a few.

I will briefly go over what to avoid as many of the gums put into our foods cause digestive issues and ‘natural flavors’ aren’t so natural at all. When you go to purchase organic pre-made items make sure to be a Label Reader. If you don’t know what an ingredient is, google it and see what exactly you are putting into your body. Does this mean more cooking at home? Yes. Is it more expensive? Yes, a bit, however any budget can Go Organic if you purchase items that are within your budget.
The main question you have to ask yourself is “What is your health worth to you ?”
After finding out what a huge difference this made on my health I became inspired, like many others out there, to find a means to spread the knowledge that I have acquired over the last year that have made dramatic improvements to my health. I hope to reach and inspire others to Go Organic and begin the journey to heal your body and improve your health.
