Today I have outlived my mother! It’s great to be alive.
One of the reasons I keep promoting the Low Carb Healthy Fat concept comes out of family.
Today is a special day because my mother died when I was only 16 and that leaves a permanent scar upon oneself. I thought she was ‘really old’ when she died from cancer spreading throughout her after being misdiagnosed by an Orthopaedic Surgeon some months before. Funny how one’s career paths are determined by life’s events beforehand.
I had my own brush with cancer some 16 years ago and therein began my journey of self interest in health outcome. I should have started my journey before but we all think we are immortal until we find out we are not.
I’ve come to learn the central role that nutrition has to our health. With what I’ve learned, both personally and from working with multiple people in the health profession and beyond, it is paramount that we continue that pathway of learning and education.
What fuel we put into our bodies determines our health. It’s as simple as that.
I know that LCHF has improved my life as well as the life of my family around me. It might have made a difference to my mother.
I have been at work today and again witnessed several patients who decided to choose health by addressing their nutrition. The smiles on their faces mean we need to keep going with this whole message of nutrition and health going.
I don’t believe we have it all worked out yet and anybody who tells you that is clearly incorrect.
I do think we are more right than wrong with the concept of eating fresh, local and seasonal food that is relatively unprocessed.
In memory of my mother today, I will continue to learn and share. It’s as simple as that.
