Older - wiser - and ..... better.....
We are the TimePrimers© - we do our best over time - we are prime and we prime time -shining it to perfection - we love our life and we want to hang around for a lot more of it..
So what do we do? and how do we do it?
When we were young we heard what are called "old wives tales" about health and food...We rolled our eyes and looked at our mothers as if they were aliens...Now we are learning that our mothers were correct. Maybe they knew what Hippocrates said:
"Leave your drugs in the chemist's pot if you can heal the patient with food."
"Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food."
Or maybe they read Maimonides:
"Let nothing which can be treated by diet be treated by other means."
or this Chinese proverb :
He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of the physician.
Whatever knowledge they had - those old wives - our parents and grandparents - they seemed to know a lot about nutrition....
My mother was adverse to seeing a physician unless absolutely necessary - something I took note of - she lived to 95 - she believed in eating well and letting one's body take care of itself... She fed us well and grew most of the vegetables we ate...
But - and it's a big BUT....the soil was in better shape when I was a kid.... and that was NYC !
Today we have depleted the soil and no matter how organic our food - it is missing what it used to have way back when - and what is missing are many essential nutrients.
The environment is more toxic than it was, food is more processed, and it is usually picked before it is ripe and very often cooked to death.
Egads... is there anything we can do to grow older better?
Stay tuned - come back and learn about glyconutrients....
Glyconutritional products will play a leading role in the 21st century's emerging wellness industry. The driving determinant will be the growing realization that optimal cell-to-cell communication is one of the most critical functions of the life process and is fundamental to immune system health.
And if our cells do a better job of talking to one another, who knows what they can start talking about!
