You know it yourself, and if you didn’t, your body tells you with every meal, every bite you eat, what you need to stay happy and healthy. You can already tell the difference between eating real food and feeding your various food addictions.
Plus every magazine / newspaper / website will be glad to give us lots of advice on how to stay healthy, what to eat and how to exercise, what to think, how to meditate, how to stay happy. And you know what? They are quite correct! Almost every last one of them.
You can also work with my favorite health book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis Balch. Instead of take this or that pill now and forever, the book, written by medical folk, talks in depth about the dis-ease, and then provides many ideas on how to use supplements / techniques / various remedies – most easily and cheaply obtainable – to improve your situation.
To get better, we have to change whatever created our condition. Tres simple, is it not? Magic bullets tend to cause more problems than they cure. Why not take a chance on changing, and see what happens?
P. S. In the current issue of the AARP Bulletin, for quieting a nighttime cough, the suggestion is one to two teaspoons of honey. (Let me suggest local honey.)
