If you have wondered or sensed a growing number of people becoming unhealthy it is not an illusion. Health is failing because our food is failing because our ground is failing.
“The story of wheat is the story of food. Our wheat has change dramatically, it doesn’t even resemble what it used to look like. Not only are we seeing more wheat and gluten sensitivity, there is also a strong connection between gluten and autoimmune disease. Tens of thousands of people are suffering with ill health and don’t realise it’s a result of the food choices they are making. Some assume it is part of their genetic make-up of the body changing as they get older. People need to become educated, knowledgeable and aware. They need to start making changes to improve the health of their children and future generations.”
Since the middle of June I’ve been thinking a lot about running The Duke City half-marathon. I want to make up for a couple of races I missed this year. What puts me off is the incredible difficulty in recovering from a month of not running back in December because of sciatic nerve pain. The pain is completely gone; the difficulty is due to the age of my body and its reluctance to improve. This makes a goal of running 13 miles seems so out of reach and undoable. Have you ever felt like why try if something is so out of reach? What do you do?
