The only way to sustain ourselves on this planet is to think consciously- what and how to behave what we eat because it is obvious that no one else will take care of us. Our goal should be eating healthy foods and herbs and keep our health in good shape, otherwise, we get unhealthy and unhappy.
Today people are sophisticated enough to eat all kinds of beautifully packaged foods without thinking about health consequences. We are constantly exposed to endless advertisements for various products, first the ones that harm our bodies and after those which should treat our illnesses. The simplicity of life is lost, we eat mostly artificial foods with fake colors and tastes. Staying on this diet will definitely kill us. We have forgotten our instincts because we think we will be more civilized if we have tried these foods which are advertised.
Every person should think about what is healthy for him or her and forget about those “fake delicious foods”, because they are full of additives and preservatives.Our foods need to be unprocessed and fresh, to keep our health on good levels.
The Bible says: use herbs for healing!
We need to learn the important lesson of life – eat simple and healthy foods, use herbs for healing and don’t think too much about all the horrible things we hear.
There is so much trouble in people’s lives, but if we keep a positive mindset, we can overcome everything.
