View Full Version : One incident can lead to total resolve to eat healthier for the rest of your life

This is the case with something that just recently happened. The dh and I (dh is a licensed minister) were asked to go pray for someone who was given only so much time to live. I won't go into details or anything, but just seeing the condition that person was in and KNOWING that it could have prevented following healthier eating habits and a healthier lifestyle gave me total resolve to continue eating as healthy as I possibly can and exercising for excellent heart health, because I vowed I would not end up in the same condition, and my dh vowed the same thing. It's amazing how one little incident as such can change the outlook on a lot of things in one's life.

wow....I havent had anything like that happen to me... all I have to see from other people are their conditions....you know when people eat and they complain about feeling sick after having an in n out shake? Thats all I have to keep me raw...but seeing someone at the last stage of sickness like that....I'm sure I would have been touched too.

This is what my motivation was, too. Longevity runs in my family (my grandmother died a year ago at 98), and I want to make sure that I'm vital, energetic, and healthy every one of those days. I do think it can take just one incident -- whatever it is -- and something "snaps" into place in our minds and hearts. And, then, we're simply there -- in a different space of intention and follow through.
I'm very sorry for the person dying. But, I'm so glad to hear that, from that experience, you and your husband are seeing life with new eyes. I'm convinced that deathbed experience is what we'll all end up having unless we eat living foods (and exercise, get fresh air, sunlight, live in love, etc.) because cooked and processed foods are the root of all illness in humans (since it prevents our marvelous body from healing itself).

This is a beautiful point to bring up. Thank you. My DH passed away three years ago at age 36 from a brain tumor. When I heard about raw, I knew this was the right way to go. For me, the incident happened before I knew how to eat healthier. He was a vegitarian and very health conscious but he didn't know about raw and he didn't know that milk products and sugar substitutes were likely diminishing his health.
I'm not sad that he didn't know any better. I am only thankful that now I know better, before it's too late for me.
