I spoke to my grandma (the one who is still living) on Grandparents Day. She was telling me how much pain she was in because she just got out of surgery. They had to do surgery to replace the battery on the pacemaker in her chest. She also struggles with knee pain that’s ongoing. The physical therapists tell her she needs to walk to make it stronger but the pain is preventing her from walking. She also wanted to mention to me that she is being forced to only eat plant food 🙂
I tell you all this because it really hurt me to hear my grandma was suffering so much. I learned the battery on the pacemaker in her chest only lasts 10 years so she will need to do surgery again in another 10 years, if God spares her life. That would make 3 surgeries on her chest.
I just can’t help but think or wonder if she had just educated herself on nutrition and a healthier lifestyle if her outcome would have been different. We go to school to get all sorts of degrees but most of us don’t pay any mind to learning how our body works and what makes it healthy. Knowing this could save your life and the lives of your family members. At the very least, it can help their life not be so painful.
I encourage you all to educate yourself on nutrition and spread the message along. Be the example to your family and the nurses to your parents. It’s hard to change parents of a certain age, but when they rely on you to make the decisions, you are in control to make the wise healthy choices for them. Be the epitome of health for your loved ones. A great place to start and really immerse yourself is at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
I am in the midst of the program and it has already changed my life for the better. I have learned so much to expand on what was already a wealth of knowledge on holistic health. Regardless of your level of knowledge coming in, there is a lot to learn. If you have questions about the program or anything health related, feel free to reach out.
