eat like your ancestors
Why is Nutrition Important?
We are 3 parts: body, soul and spirit. Each part needs to be properly nourished. Our physical body is constantly breaking down, repairing, remodeling and regenerating. The raw materials to build high quality cells that work right come from what we put in our mouth! Garbage in, garbage out. You can’t medicate your way out of something you ate your way into.
“Let thy food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be thy food.”
Don’t Just Feed Yourself, Nourish Yourself.
Every bite of food that goes into your mouth is either healing you or hurting you, healing you or killing you, or is anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory.
We should not live to eat but eat to live. Eat like your ancestors.....who had very little chronic disease.
Genes and germs are impacted by the food you eat. Activate your good genes, and nourish your good bugs/germs/flora.

“Eat God’s food not man food.”
Dr. Ben Edwards
Modern farming, food production and preservation techniques have greatly reduced all the minerals, including magnesium, from our food. That leaves you with 4 choices:
4 Key Ingredients to Look For in Nutrition
Magnesium is the number one mineral you burn through when you are stressed out
Magnesium is the “master mineral”. Minerals activate enzymes. Enzymes do the physical work in the body – adding molecules to or cleaving molecules off of substances to create other substances, like converting the cholesterol in your skin to vitamin D. Magnesium activates about 3,700 of the 9,000 enzymes in the body.
Magnesium is found naturally in foods like:
But these must be grown in soils that have magnesium and have living microbes to mobilize the magneisum.
Copper is the key mineral for mitochondrial energy production and clearing exhaust from the cell
Copper is an essential mineral to create fuel and clear exhaust. The mitochondria can’t function efficiently without adequate copper. All diseases are rooted in inflammation, and inflammation comes from a carburetor that can’t make energy or clear exhaust effectively. Copper is also the only mineral that can deal with iron appropriately, preventing you from rusting from the inside out.
Natural sources of copper:
Preferably from healthy soil found on regenerative farms
Retinol helps to deliver and activate copper and magnesium
in the cell
Retinol is the real vitamin A found only in animal fat (not beta-carotene, which is a precursor to vitamin A). Retinol, real vitamin A, plays an essential role partnering with magnesium and copper to create energy in the mitochondria. Vitamin A also works hand-in-hand with vitamin D in a ratio of 10:1 (A to D) to activate genes properly.
Minerals are the spark plug of life, bringing energy to the cell and helping to clear the exhaust (free radicals that create oxidative stress), turning on enzymes, converting hormones to active states, creating proper amounts of stomach acid, to name a few functions.
Our soil is demineralized; so our food is demineralized; so we are demineralized. Man-altered, processed table salt contains only three minerals (sodium, chloride and iodine). Real, natural salt that God made (Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, Redmond’s Real Salt, etc.) contain 60-80 different minerals. We should consume a natural blend of all the minerals, not just a select few.

You are one big bag of water. In fact, over 90% of the molecules in your body are H2O. Chronically dehydrated cells can’t function optimally.
Sitting is the new smoking. Sitting uninterrupted for hours increases your risk of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and almost all modern, western diseases…..even if you hit the gym at the end of the day.
The body is not designed to be, and cannot function optimally, in “fight or flight” mode most hours of a day and most days of a week. Chronic stress is not compatible with long-term health. True peace, not just stress management, is the goal.
