Day 7 of the Your Turn Challenge and I’m talking vegetables. This has been a great challenge. I’ve enjoyed reading a lot of the other bloggers participating and knowing we are all out there giving it a go has made this a special week!
As a Certified Integrative Health Coach, I spend a lot of time thinking, researching and talking about health issues and the effects of vegetables and other fresh natural foods on our health. One of my concerns for all of us is that Big Pharma “owns” way too much of our congress and way too many doctors. To become a healthy nation, we as individuals, are going to have to take matters into our own hands. Whenever I happen to see or read one of their big drug ads, I always wonder why anyone would subject themselves to such horrendous side effects. As a woman who is at the age of hot flashes, I would prefer to keep a fan in my purse than to take a drug whose side effects include thoughts of suicide and heart problems. My drug of choice has become a healthy diet, i.e. vegetables, and lots of exercise. Amazing what eating well can do for you. So I made this little drug commercial with the help of my son Paul and as my last entry of the challenge, I would like to share it with you. Click here.
We can age healthy with the right information and the willingness to put forth the effort!
