Did you notice that I changed the name of my website from “Yes to Life” to the “Yes to Life Solution?”
What’s the difference? Why did I make this change?
The Yes to Life Solution takes this another step. Adding the word “solution” adds another layer of meaning.
We don’t need solutions unless we have problems. And when I look at our world, I see LOTS of problems. And one of the biggest problems is that in our attempt to solve a problem, we often contribute to even more problems!
So the Yes To Life Solution is about choosing solutions that truly support life — in the long-term.
Starting with health, the Yes to Life Solution can help you get slim and healthy without dieting and without drugs. No bad side affects. No creating food obsessions. No more yo-yoing.
Let’s suppose you have high cholesterol. Chances are you’re probably overweight too, and have high blood pressure. Maybe you even have blood sugar levels that your doctor warns are getting close to diabetic range.
The usual recommendation would be to take statin drugs to lower cholesterol. Most people take them for the rest of their lives. (And you’d also be given drugs for the other problems, but for now, let’s just look at the cholesterol problem.)
According to Web MD, the most common side effects of statin drugs are: headache, difficulty sleeping, skin flushing, muscle aches, tenderness, or weakness, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea and/or vomiting, abdominal cramping and/or pain, bloating and/or gas, diarrhea, constipation, and rash. In addition, statins can also cause memory loss, mental confusion, high blood sugar, and type 2 diabetes.
Obviously, the drug solution to high cholesterol can cause a lot more problems and seriously impair quality of life.
The solution, then, is to stop eating the Standard American Diet and start eating a diet of whole, unprocessed plant foods: vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, and a few nuts and seeds.
Cholesterol comes down to healthy levels, without the use of drugs.
In addition, blood pressure also comes down. Excess weight melts away. Blood sugar becomes more stable and returns to healthy levels.
This one solution solves lots of problems that otherwise would require a medicine cabinet full of different drugs.
So this isn’t just about a nice way to think about life. It’s a way to solve many serious problems. That’s the reason I renamed my website the Yes to Life Solution.
