My parents always taught me how to be self sufficient. I don't think they meant it in the way that I am striving to live for they are very dependent on the system that I wish to break free from. One of these is health care. Most of my life I have not had insurance. Even when I did 1/2 of that time I couldn't afford to use it. What this movie brings to light is that we already have to tools to be healthy. We just are not using them.
I am also a license massage therapist in the state of Texas. I found in my practice that the majority of the people who came to me just wanted me to fix them. I had people who came to me every week with the same problems because they were not doing what they needed to be doing for themselves to be better. I found that they didn't want to be responsible for their own health.
Most of us reading blogs and homesteading are looking for a different life. A life where we can nourish ourselves, and our families. The solution or at least the base foundation of the solution is the food we eat. What we eat.
I could go on and on but instead I implore you to take the time, not for me but for yourself. To watch this movie. I promise if you truly care about your life as well as your loved ones, it will change the way you think and possibly the way you eat. I know it has mine.
