educate before we medicate

LET’S EDUCATE BEFORE WE MEDICATE!  Building our immune resilience is the key to reducing the risk or recovering from illnesses and viruses such as the devastating Covid-19. Of course, we must protect ourselves and each other with important hygiene measures like thorough hand-washing... but we must face the fact that the search for an effective vaccine could take months, perhaps even years... assuming this proves possible at all. Moreover, the more we learn about Covid-19 and viruses in general, the more we understand that the 'new normal' may well include the prospect of future pandemics from as yet unknown viruses and associated infections.

The good news is that we don’t have to wait. We can do much MUCH more by taking steps NOW that will combat the threats to our health and the health of our children, our family and friends, our entire planet.

Educate before we medicate - take control

Let's face it - the Covid-19 pandemic has shown that we are a far from health population and it's heartbreaking to see the evidence is showing clearly that the people most at risk have underlying health issues like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune conditions. But it's not only those with diagnosed health conditions that should be concerned. The many, many millions who have been eating a nutritionally impoverished high-sugar diet, relying on processed and ultra-processed foods and living stressful, dysfunctional and disconnected lifestyles will all have immune systems lacking in the resilience to protect them against external threats... like viruses and infections.

Our immune system is a complex network of cells and proteins – our heroic, in-built defence mechanism against infections and viruses. It has evolved and is primed to respond to fend off these viruses but can only do so effectively if we keep it strong and resilient. If we don’t, it becomes a victim.

This means a return to REAL, NUTRIENT DENSE WHOLE FOOD - the food enjoyed by our grandparents and theirs: real, organic, unprocessed food, raised and grown in healthy soils, properly prepared and cooked from scratch with love and compassion for the planet.

The Real Food Solution will take you back to the future of food and teach you how to take back control of our own health and wellbeing. This book is neither a cookbook (although it has over 40 delicious recipes) or nutrition handbook (although it has a plethora of nutritional information). The Real Food Solution is indeed a treasury of food wisdom and emerging science which will re-teach forgotten skills, open your eyes to the major food and environmental issues we are all facing and show you ways to promote, enjoy and sustain much better health for you and for the planet.

Immune health is front-and-centre

The coronavirus pandemic has put immune health front-and-centre of public health and it’s up to us to take back control of our bodies and create resilient immune systems. Simple changes to diet and lifestyle are the prescription in The Real Food Solution. Within its pages, you’ll discover:

  • How to reclaim our daily bread
  • How to make better choices when we’re shopping for meat, dairy, fish and fruit and vegetables
  • Why salt and sugar are being unfairly demonised and what we can do about it
  • The culinary wizardry of herbs and spices
  • Why fat is our friend, not our foe and why offal isn’t awful

And much, much more... all supported by sound scientific research and in practical terms by dozens of easy, delicious and nutritious recipes.

Building immune resilience

My hope, my intention, is to educate BEFORE we need to medicate. My Immune Resilience Series is a treasure trove of supportive evidence-based information and insights into how we can help our immune system to respond appropriately to external challenges (such as the Covid-19 pandemic) and return to a healthy and resilient state of health and wellbeing. Ultimately, the changes we make now could be life-saving.

Optimum nutrition

We are what we eat and how we live: when we support our immune system from within – with optimum nutrition from whole, real, fresh foods and a health creating lifestyle – our immune system can be our hero, not a victim.

As the pandemic continues, I have discounted the price of The Real Food Solution to make it more available and affordable for anyone:

  • who cares where their food comes from and how it was produced
  • who wants better health for people and planet
  • who is financially challenged at this time

Please, do yourself and your body a huge, huge favour and get a copy of The Real Food Solution. Eat real food. Create better health. Improve lives. Because we - and our families - are worth it.
