A few years ago I learned something that shifted my attitude about the connection between good health and food.
The Health-Nutrition Connection
It started when I caught Dr. Mark Hyman on television talking about his book, The Blood Sugar Solution. At the time, I wasn’t feeling well. I had digestive issues, pre-diabetes symptoms, menopausal symptoms, rosacea, low energy, and more.
In his discussion that Sunday afternoon, Dr. Hyman said (in a nutshell) that improving nutrition improves health and that people (like me) are unknowingly eating food that’s causing inflammation and making them (me) sick.
I was skeptical, but wanted to learn more, so I bought The Blood Sugar Solution. And soon after incorporating a few of Dr. Hyman’s recommendations, I felt better. My symptoms improved almost immediately.
To read more about my experience and what I learned, read “Nutrition and Inflammation – How Are They Related and Why Should I Care?”
An Interview with Dr. Mark Hyman
Today, I’m sharing a video of one of my favorite people online, Marie Forleo, interviewing Dr. Hyman.
If you’re not familiar with Marie, I highly recommend you check out her work. She is “An entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, and unshakable optimist dedicated to helping you become the person you most want to be.” From Marie’s “About” page at marieforleo.com
I hope you take the time to watch or listen to the interview if you’re interested in learning a few simple ways to improve your health.
You may be doubtful, about Dr. Hyman’s message, about the idea that food you eat every day can be making you sick. I was certainly skeptical about his message.
I thought, “Certainly food companies aren’t allowed to sell products that make people sick.” I thought I was protected.
But now I know that’s just not true.
Or watch/listen to the 30-minute video here:
Especially as we age, eating good food becomes critical to feeling well and strong. I encourage you to watch/listen with an open mind and an open heart. Dr. Hyman inspired me take control of my health and it could do the same for you or some one you love.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about what you’ve heard. Feel free to share in the comments.
