The manipulation of our food sources has distanced us from our natural state of being healthy and trim. Instead, so many of us have one or more chronic illnesses. Heart disease continues to be a number one killer in the US, diabetes has become an epidemic, and obesity is on the rise. We are plagued with inflammatory conditions, digestive disorders, impaired fertility, trouble sleeping, anxiety and depression among others.
- About 50% of American adults have a preventable diet and lifestyle related chronic disease (heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune conditions and some cancers)
- Every 37 seconds in America someone dies of heart disease – the #1 killer in the US
- 1 in 3 Americans born in 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime
- More than 2/3 of adults and 1/3 of children are overweight or obese (increases risk for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis-related conditions, and 40% of all cancers diagnosed)
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” – Thomas Edison
The reality is that the food choices available and preferred by many are no longer compatible with health and often are in direct opposition. Whole foods have been replaced by highly processed foods high in fat, sugar, salt, and calories and low in nutrients and fiber. The packaging of these ultra-processed foods encourage an addiction that keeps us coming back for more despite knowing they are not good for us. We are compelled to not just eat, but overeat. Over time this packs on the pounds and the many other illnesses associated with unhealthy eating habits.
You can say good-bye to dieting, willpower, restriction and deprivation. WeHeal can help break these patterns and introduce you to foods that taste great, allow you to eat until you are comfortably full, and promote health and wellness.
