ReBoot for Health
Why does vegan work? Karma? Probably. But there’s a lot of science supporting the health benefits as well. But just going vegan can be misleading. If we want to reboot our health, kind of like rebooting a computer when it’s running sluggish, we can also reboot our body with whole plant based foods.
Why Plant Based Foods?
When we have intense cravings and lack of energy, it’s likely caused by an imbalance of bacteria and fungus residing in our gut. This imbalance can prompt our brain to crave processed, sugary and fatty foods which help the bad bacteria to thrive and cause us to crash. The great news is that we can over-ride this second brain (our gut) by consuming gut healing foods in order to ReBoot our health! A whole food, plant based diet will do just that, in fact it has been proven to prevent, reverse and arrest many of the top western diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, IBD, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, some cancers, etc.
Start by consuming whole, plant-based foods and crowding out all processed foods. With every single bite, we can eventually ReBoot our system. At first, don’t trust your cravings, especially sugar, fried and processed food. However, take notice of how foods make you feel after eating them. Consume foods that don’t spike blood sugars, because they turn to sugar quickly, store as fat and make you tired and hungry soon after. Think about how everything is digesting through your system. Does it irritate your stomach in any way with bloating, constipation or diarrhea? Or do you feel energetic, light and alive? Eventually, your body will adjust and these new foods will taste amazing! You may start craving new types of food such as kale, instead of white bread, for example. You are creating a new gut micro-biome and overriding the craving signals the bad bacteria are sending to your brain. You are ReBooting, healing and taking control of your body!
