I have been asked just what “diet” the husband and I have been following. For those who don’t know us we have turned our family upside down. The pantry changed. The cleaning closet transformed. Everything is different.
Very little fruit.
The reality is that we are NOT on a diet. We haven’t been adopted by a group of weird aliens masquerading as nutritionist. We haven’t decided to become the next revolutionist (ok, maybe I have once or twice). We’ve simply found someone who explained to us how the body works.
When I first met our Maximized Living doctor, I was skeptical. After all, I had been to a chiropractor before. However, when I saw the potential for hope, the skepticism left. It was hard to swallow that true health was going to cost us — money, time and energy. I was irritated, but not surprised, to find that our $1200/month health insurance would be of no benefit. We prayed, then made the decision to begin care.
Three months into this journey we have lost weight, medications, and chemicals. We have gained our sanity, health and spirituality. We never imagined that there would be more to health than just the “absence of disease”.
For the next five days I will share the process we have gone through. It is NOT my intention to sell you on Maximized Living, although I think it is a great way to health. It is my intention to encourage you to discover your own way to health. To discover the components of health that YOUR body requires – no matter what that system is. Ultimately, this has worked for us and is just a testimonial of our experience.
What is Maximized Living
Using the Five Essentials, this system of living helps people live full, natural lives. Free from unnecessary medications and medical treatments. Free from chemicals that interrupt and harm the harmony of the human body systems. Free from a world that says living to 100 is impossible…with a lifestyle change it is not only possible…but probable! Free to embrace the reality of the one who created the body and embrace the process that allows the body to heal itself. This system recognizes that health is not just the absence of sickness. Health encompasses the body, the soul, the mind and the environment. Maximized Living allows a person to live to their full maximum potential!
