Why Eat Organic?

Why Eat Organic?

In the rush to produce more and more crops to satisfy the growing demand for food, producers have resorted to using a cocktail of pesticides to control disease and insect attack. Good news for their bank accounts perhaps, but not good news for your health. This is why eating organic is so beneficial – and arguably now, super essential.

Did you know that if you consumed an average apple you would be eating over 30 pesticides, even after you have washed it? Let that sink in.

The Benefits of Organic

Organic food is known to contain 50% more nutrients, minerals, and vitamins than produce that has been intensively farmed. Sadly, a vast majority of conventional produce in your grocery store is being sprayed with pesticides or is grown on land that is contaminated with an array of chemicals. Studies have shown that these byproducts you’re ingesting have detrimental effects on your health and well-being. Eating a piece of fruit isn’t supposed to be bad for you!

But it’s not just produce that is affected. There is a cocktail of antibiotics and hormones that conventionally raised cattle and poultry are force fed. The question becomes: what happens to all of those chemicals when the animal dies? Do they just go away? Not so much. They become a part of us the minute we choose to eat contaminated meat. It isn’t a coincidence that we are seeing more and more free range or organically fed meat turning up in our supermarkets. It just doesn’t make sense that animals raised around chemicals, or who are fed antibiotics or are kept in cramped, unhealthy conditions – are themselves healthy and a phigh-quality food. If you are as worried as I am about the health of your family then you need to seriously consider converting your family to the organic lifestyle.

It seems like every day we hear stories in the news or online about a certain food being linked to diseases due to their toxicity. The chemicals used in food production have been linked to:

  • Cancer
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Immune System dysfunction
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Neurological disorders
  • Obesity
  • Joint pain
  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Birth defects

The list could go on. Not good, right? It’s impossible for us to eat foods laced

It’s impossible for us to eat foods laced in chemicals and pesticides, and for our bodies to NOT have a reaction. We are a delicate ecosystem. Our bodies are good at achieving balance, but we have to provide it with the proper nutrients. Disease and inflammation in the body are inevitable if we consistently feeding it foreign chemicals.

To get started on your journey towards eating a more clean, organic diet, check out The Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Food. It’s a great resource to have handy as you make your way through the supermarket.

Get a Restful Sleep

Get a Restful Sleep

Sleep consists of a series of distinct cycles and stages that restore and refresh your body and mind. Even minimal sleep loss takes a toll on your mood, energy, efficiency, and ability to handle stress. If you want to feel your best, stay healthy, and perform up to your potential, sleep is a necessity, not a luxury.

The power of sleep

Many of us want to sleep as little as possible—or feel like we have to. There are so many things that seem more interesting or important than getting a few more hours of sleep. But just as exercise and nutrition are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep.

The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort!
