Find & Follow Your Truth

Four years ago, I began documenting my physical – and very much mental – dietary transformation.  I called it TRUTHOLOGY, because it described my personal quest to discover the optimal human diet.  Over the course of the last few years, I have come to find that there are multiple truths and the optimal human diet is subject to the individual.

Last week marked the 4-year anniversary of the inception of my dietary transformation.  It’s hard for me to believe that 4 whole years have passed and, while my new eating habits have since become second nature, I’m as surprised as anyone that I made such a drastic life change.  Sometimes I wonder whether I truly remodeled my belief system, or if this was my existing ideology all along, waiting patiently for the right time and place to manifest.  Either way, my commitment to the program is as strong as ever and I do not envision myself regressing.  To honor my 4-year-old quest, I am dedicating this piece to examine what could have possibly motivated me to make such a dramatic transformation and why I have stuck with it.

I often wonder if chronic illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, are man-made.  I know this is a bold thought, but it’s really hard for me to believe that we were created with the intention to suffer from disease.  Unfortunately, there is no way we will ever know the answer to this notion, as it is beyond the scope of recorded medical history.  At minimum, I believe there is enough current scientific evidence to suggest that the prevalence and increasing rate of chronic illness is attributable to mankind….that is, lifestyle and environmental conditions.
