All my life, I have competed against others and against myself to try to win.
What is a win for a person?
I guess for myself, accomplishing something I have not been able to up to that point.
In competition, though you either win or lose or at best, it’s second or third.
But to me, that is not fair as everyone who trained put in their best effort and on the day you either had what it took or accepted defeat by seconds or tenths of a second.
So along comes Compumatrix and levels the playing field in my mind as it gives everyone a chance to win. We cross the finish line together, and if we do this right, we all turn our win into a win for all who wish to follow.
We compound our win to band together to achieve projects out of reach for some up to that point.
At different stages in my life, the questions I ask myself will not be the same.
A win for me in my later years is to sit, lie, kneel with no pain.
That is just being healthy, so being healthy is a win for me.
We are aware of what we need to do to train for an event. We need strong muscles for the load. We need to exercise and cause a little discomfort to build those muscles.
Later on in life, along comes the dreaded inflammation, Cancers, and other diseases. We didn’t train our bodies to win over these disorders, and some things have to be in place to win this fight.
Compumatrix, with its business model, puts things in place to win, which is great to behold and great to be a part.
But being part of this great business and the benefits thereof, we need to have our health to enjoy it.
So we must put in place our effort to win our health back to enjoy any win we have in life, especially in our later years.
Reading the daily updates on people’s health in Discord, it seems like the majority succumb to drastic measures that may or may not have a successful outcome. So I am going to mention a couple of ideas that I have come across myself, which in my opinion, are more in tune with whole-body health.
Sam in Discord (09/08/20) under ‘did you know’ showed that important information usually is in plain sight. We have to open our eyes and our mind.
I feel this correlates to our gut, where we have billions of bacteria that can do their job correctly if given the right circumstances. Still, we ignore their potential to lead us to health, and this is right in the center of our bodies, right in plain sight but ignored.
I am again talking about gut flora, which I briefly touched on in my blog, Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise.
I have found a way to help those bacteria responsible for our health through the fermentation process of fermented milk called Kefir and fermented vegetables. These fermented foods feed the trillions of invisible bacteria that live in us and have a purpose in keeping us healthy.
Kefir is more beneficial than yogurt and has much more beneficial bacteria.
We destroy many of our good bacteria in the body by taking antibiotics and other substances. The bacteria in Kefir will replace and grow these good bacteria. Kefir contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids that all play their part in being healthy and lowering inflammation in the body.
Before I came across Kefir, my go-to was yogurt. I found out that what I make myself with Kefir has over 50 beneficial strains of good bacteria compared to up to ten with yogurt.
It tastes sour because it feeds on the lactose or sugars, so the sour taste in the absence of sugar. Kefir also helps in digestion, reduces allergies and asthma symptoms, and suppresses colds and flu.
We live in an environment with bacteria in us and below us and around us. In our modern age, we also live with pesticides and chemicals that these bacteria can remove inside us by regularly ingesting cultured vegetables.
Many people, especially in this age of the COVID virus, are now growing more of their food and preserving them by canning. If not done right, it can cause botulism. The safer alternative is to ferment as the lactic acid bacteria that carry out the fermentation can kill other harmful bacteria and food poisoning. The good bacteria in Kefir suppress the harmful bacteria using the sugar as food and leaving you with a slightly sour product that adds to the good bacteria in your gut.
You already have colonies of bacteria inside of you, doing essential tasks. When you give them the additional bacteria from fermented milk and vegetables, it allows your body to err on the healthy side.
Apart from having beneficial properties, Kefir was a way people preserved milk in the past.
Culturing changes vegetables also by vastly increasing its vitamin content, and it also increases nutrient availability.
Again, this knowledge is well discussed and is readily available for health-minded individuals.
The purpose of my mentioning is to get you to research it as it looks like something so simple is right within each of us just as Compumatrix is within reach of our grasps.
Still, we have to put in a specific effort to acquire what has been handed to us if we choose to participate.
Many of you are more knowledgeable in health than I, and I hope to learn more from your comments.
I hope to step back a bit in my next blog and delve into the growth of live food and some of the people that are my action hero’s in this arena.
