This song elicits the Christmas song that creates images of a star that led the shepherds and wise men to the manger of baby Jesus so many years ago. These men saw a star that meant something exciting was happening…something new and followed it to discover their Savior, Jesus Christ. I wonder how many other people saw that star, but discounted it as a regular constellation and went about their day? How they missed out seeing one of the most amazing gifts of grace in history!
I feel as if we are being given “stars” or signs in the field of health and medical science. Do you see what I see? I see studies coming out by the hundreds linking that our immune system is in our gut. I see papers being published about how Parkinson’s is linked to the presence or lack there of a bacteria in our gut. I am seeing success stories of probiotic’s giving people their stomach a rest from rumbling and diarrhea. I see first hand with my clients how changing one’s nutrition to whole foods and avoidance of processed foods and sugar can reinvigorate them, create more energy for them and relieve them from so many ailments that are now just considered “normal”. I am seeing medical journals giving a nod to studies on our genes and how we eat can impact how the genes express themselves, also known as epigenetics.
Do you see what I see? So many of the common ailments we suffer from as a country can be greatly relieved by our diet and nutrition. Millions are suffering. Graves Disease effects 10 million, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 1 million, Chrohn’s disease 700,000, Hashimotos’ 3 million. ALL of these auto immune diseases can be greatly limited if not reversed by the nutrition we choose. The list is longer than what I shared here. The stars are pointing to nutrition as an opportunity to heal our bodies.
