Joe’s Journal: Day 24 – Just Say No to Drugs

When you get sick and go to the doctor, what normally happens? You tell them your symptoms, the doctor writes you a prescription to fight those symptoms and off to the pharmacy you go. What about getting to the bottom of it and finding out why you ended up sick in the first place, or what is causing that rash, or why you are having constant headaches?

In this new millennium, we live in a culture where it’s common place to dispense drugs like they’re candy. New drugs are always being created and marketed to counter the effects of our self-destructive eating and lifestyle habits. The problem is that our bodies always pay a price for taking these medications. They may have toxic side effects that may be known, or are yet to be determined. Further, these medications don’t usually cure. Instead, they serve as enablers, permitting us to continue our bad habits while lessening or controlling the effects of those behaviors.

Fruits and vegetables do amazing things to our bodies and have magical healing powers. Make sure you check out the food remedies for common health conditions on the Reboot with Joe site to find out what foods will help you: https://www.rebootwithjoe.com/eating/health-conditions/
