Thanks Mom!

One size never fits all when it comes to our health. That’s why some people can eat certain foods while others can’t and some treatments work for some but not for others.

When it comes to our health, everyone is different inside and out because we were all born in different areas and were carried by our specific mothers.

Your mother is responsible for your nutritional profile at birth. Think about her and ask yourself: Did she live in the city or the country, drink well water or city water? Was she a single mom, drink alcohol or take drugs? How old was she? Did she a stay at home or work? Was she healthy while pregnant or under a lot of stress? Where were you in the birth order?

It all adds up for your health. For instance, you get your lifetime supply of minerals from your mother, and she can’t give you what she doesn’t have. Your body uses minerals for fuel and doesn’t produce or store them.

As we age, we need fresh fruits, veggies and clean water. Your body can’t uptake a single vitamin without the essential minerals.
