Don't Read Most Of My Posts?

Hereโ€™s a stat for youโ€”

My blog has about 10,000 followers in total (between theย TrustOrganix.comย website, this Facebook Group and our Facebook Page). Not bad considering we donโ€™t promote or advertise the blog.

Despite that number, analytics tell me that only about 4,000 are routinely reading my posts. Now thatโ€™s a decent percentage in the world of blogging, but it disappoints me a little.

You see, when we started Trust Organix it wasnโ€™t just about earning a living. If that was the case, I would skip writing and researching articles altogether and simply run paid advertisements. Itโ€™s WAY easier than blogging!

Hereโ€™s the thingโ€” those of you regular readers of my articles and recipes know by now that I recently had a kidney transplant after spending 6 years on dialysis. I didnโ€™t get to the point of kidney failure by no fault of my own. In fact, Iโ€™d say I was probably 99% responsible for my kidney failure and deteriorating health.

Why? Well, without getting into too many self-incriminating stories, letโ€™s just say a number of years living recklessly, eating shitty, and feeling invincible finally caught up with me. I was only 40 years old when the first symptoms started to appear. Now a smart person wouldโ€™ve seen a doctor when the initial symptoms surfaced. Me? Nah, I figured it would just go away. I told myself lie after lie for years before I entered End Stage Renal Disease, aka Kidney Failure. Thatโ€™s the point at which I would have died a quick and senseless death without dialysis.

My personal experience got me to thinking just how fragile life really is. I think most of us tend to run through life with horse blinders on, never really seeing the obstacles coming at us until theyโ€™re already staring us in the face. In other words, most of us donโ€™t take very good care of our health until something bad happens. By that point, often times, itโ€™s too late to fix the years of neglect.

I can only imagine how much different my lifeโ€™s trajectory would have been had I taken better care of myself along the way. Think about it โ€” 6 years of dialysis plus the 3 years I felt like crap before add up to nearly a decade of my life put on hold. It was such a tragic waste of life. That said, I learned A LOT during those 10 yearsโ€” about myself and about life.

I take GREAT care of my health nowadays.

Sure, I had experienced bouts of seesaw dieting in my past. Every 5 years or so Iโ€™d get disgusted with how out of shape Iโ€™d become, go on a diet, exercise a little, and then โ€” like a flash in the pan โ€” I was right back to living an unhealthy life of bad foods, no exercise, too much alcohol, and so on.

Iโ€™m sure most of you can relate to some degree.

Now I obviously canโ€™t force you to do things differently (although I sure wish I could) โ€” BUT PLEASE โ€” heed my advice and listen to my story because my story could easily become yours too!

And I would NEVER, EVER, want my health experience, or anything like it, to happen to you.

Several lines of evidence indicate that realistic modifications of diet and lifestyle can prevent most heart disease, stroke, diabetes, colon cancer, and smoking-related cancers.

Taken a step further, numerous studies indicate that among U.S. adults, more than 90% of type 2 diabetes, 80% of heart disease, 70% of stroke, and 70% of colon cancer are potentially preventable by a combination of a healthy diet, nonsmoking, avoidance of being overweight, moderate physical activity, and moderate alcohol consumption (Willett 2002).

Ask yourselfโ€” Are you doing all that you can?

Unfortunately, those of you reading this are probably the 40% of my readers that are already, to some degree, trying to take care of your health. And for that, Iโ€™m incredibly blessed to have made a positive impact on your health.

Itโ€™s the rest of you Iโ€™m really worried about.

So what Iโ€™m asking YOU to do today are TWO things:

Together, maybe we can save just one person from living through the nightmare I experienced. And if this post is the first youโ€™ve read from me, maybe itโ€™s you I can help save from making the same mistakes I did?


Yours in health,
