In 2000, I went to work at our local health food store...just to study under the elderly couple that
owned it. They were both naturopathic doctors & were
walking encyclopedias into natural healing.
They owned & still own...a health food store that is
also...kind of like a 'walk in clinic'. :-) You could
come to them at any time of any given day & they would
take the time to help you figure out what your problem
was & advise you on healing your own body.
I've seen people walk in that door that had been given
no hope by their doctors...and only 2 months to live...
and I've seen this couple take them under their wing &
absolutely work miracles.
When I first went to work there...I was SO excited to be
studying under them. And I'd come home with all these
stories of people buying 25 pound bags of carrots, etc. :-)
One day, my husband said, "But can you really tell a difference in the people who buy all the carrots, etc...
and the other people that just come in and get 'hit and miss' stuff.
One of the first things the couple did for me when I went
there..was introduce me to customers and let me hear their
story. They'd introduce me to someone and have me guess
their age. I'd usually guess 55 or 60 or whatever...fairly
young. Only to find out they were 75 or 85 years old.
And they had the rosiest cheeks...and the most vibrant
personalities...and were so alert and moved around so well.
I just got to where I'd call them my 'cartoon people'.
One day a little old lady came in...and I guessed her at
68 or 70...and she proceeded to lay down in the floor
and do the 'bicycle' exercise...she also did jumping jacks
and other things....she was 86 years old and an aerobics
instructor. :-) She invited me to her class and said she'd
'go easy' on me at first :-) I was about 53 years old
at the time. :-)
So I really could see a tremendous difference in people
that took this juicing and healthy life style seriously.
And it changed my life drastically. We are not NEARLY
as strict with our diet as we should be...and that's mainly
my fault...we work long hours around our home and gardens...and I rush just like everyone else...with home,
family and church responsibilities.
But I learned by example...that it can make a huge difference if we'll just apply it to our lives.
I hope everyone that reads this will apply it even better
than we have...kathryn
