Big Disconnect #2
(an excerpt from the upcoming book, The ‘Plan A’ Diet™):
Taking medication for a chronic condition and believing that the condition no longer exists ranks as another Big Disconnect I’ve witnessed over the years. The majority of people taking such meds can fall prey to a false sense of security; they reason that because their biomarkers are now within range or their symptoms are relieved, the problem has been solved.
The typical American makes no meaningful lifestyle changes because they believe their health issues have been fixed by a prescription, and their doctors are not telling them otherwise. Some of my clients consider themselves to be in excellent health in spite of the need for several daily prescription meds. The chronic condition, along with its root cause, still exists; only the biomarker readings or symptoms have improved (for now). The ailment will not be given the environment to halt, reverse or partially heal because the underlying root cause is not being addressed; instead, in most cases, the ailment will continue to progress unless a serious change in diet occurs.
The person who trusts in himself is foolish, but the person who lives wisely will be kept safe.
(Prov. 28:26, ICB)
Why stay on a lifetime regimen of medication (along with their side effects which often require MORE medication), when changing to the dietary pattern God designed us to eat has been proven time and again to be the answer? Why “manage” disease when you can most likely get rid of it?

PS: Exciting News – The book proposal for The ‘Plan A’ Diet is in the works! Pray that the Lord puts the right agent and/or publisher in my path and that I have the wisdom to recognize it. People are dying prematurely and needlessly, all because of food choices. I’m praying that this book will be an encouragement and wake-up call to many.
