Foods With Vitamin C

Graphic of foods containing Vitamin C.

How many of these foods do you eat on a regular basis? This is a really good check in to use. I think in general, we think we eat a lot more fruit and vegetables then we do sometimes.

As many of you know I’m a big advocate of fruit consumption and when I work with people who think they eat a lot of fruit usually it’s just a token Apple or a Banana that they are referring to and that really isn’t a lot of fruit.

That’s just an example so I thought I’d share this graphic to get our minds going and open to how much vitamin C we actually get in our diets. I firmly believe supplementation is almost always necessary. Right now I am personally taking vitamin C-IV Therapy which is delivering high doses of vitamin C delivered through intravenous. I started this in March of 2021 when I was first diagnosed with my with my ‘apparent’ Stage 4 Incurable Cancer.

Vitamin C is a huge deal and something that I firmly believe we should all make a priority to get into our bodies.

In fact, I marvel at how I have not had a cold or anything like that, since well prior to March of 2020 and I remember that date just because of the pandemic starting.

And then in March of 2021 not only was I diagnosed with cancer but I had COVID (the original version) and with very little symptoms at all. I didn’t even know I had it actually until I went for a preop for my surgery to have removed the life threatening cyst in my colon! Oh yes, So that is another thing I went through a very intense 5 and a 1/2 hour surgery with 6 days in the hospital which takes a huge hit on your body and still no cold or anything like that.

I attribute the supplementation I take on a regular basis, my food choices, and the vitamin C that I take as being helpful in all of this. I’m also on medications that apparently weaken your immune system and still no cold or anything like that so that so I think it’s pretty powerful

Have a great day everyone!

Think About Your Future Health! This is KEY!

A Pot Boiling

Have you ever watched a pot of water boiling?

A pot of water on the stove just starting to boil.

When you boil a pot of water it seems to take forever doesn’t it? Until it doesn’t. Once that pot starts to boil, look out, it is boiling and boiling hot!

Our health can be like that. We coast along and everything seems fine, until it’s not. Things don’t just happen. They build up over time, especially nutrient deficiencies and their repercussions.

It our modern society, it is nearly impossible to get all of the nutrients from our food no matter how well we eat. Not to mention, all of the pathogens and toxins we must combat along the way. These also rob nutrients from our bodies! Medications rob nutrients from our bodies. Stress robs nutrients from our bodies.

I have talked to many people throughout the years who when seeming to be on the top of their health game, have expressed things like “Oh I don’t need to supplement, my doctor says I have the blood of a 20 year.” And similar phrases.

Well one thing we know is that life progresses and and in this world we live in now, there are more stressors, pathogens and viruses, popping up all the time, and the game changes.

One of the most important things we can do is to prepare now for our future. We don’t want to wait until that pot is boiling.

What we can do is supply our body with nutrients now. We can support our bodies and minds by supplying nutrients to allow them to function better now and to lay the groundwork for a healthier tomorrow.

Just something to think about. And please reach out and let me help you determine the best place to start on this journey or allow me to make recommendations to help you fill in any gaps that you think are missing in your preventative health plan. I would love to help
