One of the leading diseases that caused by poor diet is CKD or Chronic Kidney Disease. This is where the kidneys begin to either function poorly or fail entirely. This is when a kidney transplant needs to be done.
To properly understand the kidneys and their function, let’s start with what they are used for.
The kidneys perform many crucial functions, including: maintaining overall fluid balance. regulating and filtering minerals from blood. filtering waste materials from food, medications, and toxic substances.
By definition, this is an important part of the body we need in order to function. It only makes perfect sense that we put good fuel in our bodies keep them functioning properly.
- There is an old saying that has been passed down from generation to generation that goes as follows. My parents had diabetes or high blood pressure, so that means I’m going to get it. Or it runs in my family… There are several things that we can take that have been passed down from one family member to another.
- Eye color or shape
- Body shape (to an extent)
- Hair color
- Genetic makeup
Things we should not see as it was passed to me are things like diseases.
Yes there may be a “pre-disposition”, but overall this is a behavioral change that needs to happen. Instead of eating the fast foods, fried foods, junk food, processed foods.
What if you decided to change these things and make healthier food choices, like fruits, vegetables, and water. (Regular Water).
This will not only change your outcome, but as you feed your children this way you are helping them to make better choices, and changing the way the previous generation did things.
Growing up, my family cooked with a lot of oil, fried foods, a ton of eggs etc…The product of this led to diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and so on.
It’s critical to teach this next generation the importance of healthier food choices, and we won’t need the medication as we age.
We all know according to these major companies, the money is not in the cure, but’s it in the medicine. Which they will keep you coming back for more, giving these companies power over your life and the lives of your loved ones. Let’s help educate people on changing their perspective on eating a Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle. What a life changing experience.
Till next time, be blessed
