Illnesses that have long plagued black people are thought to be hereditary. In my opinion, the only illnesses that are hereditary are genetic defects/irregularities.
Here’s another tool in dealing with the Black Healthcare Disparity through Prevention, Minimizing, and Rebuilding/Strengthening, ways that you can very easily apply.
Prevention meaning: “If it’s not broke, don’t break it”
Minimizing: If there is/has been injury/illness do what is necessary to heal and restore
Rebuilding/Strengthening means working to optimize good health. This step will mean adopting things in your diet to strengthen, heal, and optimize restoration.
I like Natural Healing. Some of us have conditions that require Traditional Pharmaceutical Medicine and even with that you can still incorporation Natural components that work well in maintenance and prevention. *** Remember, the root of pharma is a plant.
Research and incorporate herbs, roots, etc. to your diet.
Here are some of staple suggestions:
Garlic - Consuming garlic on a daily basis (in food or raw) helps to lower cholesterol levels, anti-oxidant properties, immensely beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
Beets - high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas, Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.
Navy Bean/Black Bean/Beans - Navy beans are an excellent source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, navy beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as brown rice, navy beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. But this is far from all navy beans have to offer. Navy beans are a very good source of folate and manganese and a good source of protein and vitamin B1 as well as the minerals phosphorus, copper, magnesium and iron.
Tumeric - turmeric is a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antimicrobial, and anticancer agent.
Pineapple - Pineapples are a storehouse of several health benefits due to its wealth of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, including potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B6, and folate, and bromelain, as well as soluble and insoluble fiber.
Water, Water, Water -
The black community is plagued with so much illness that is not hereditary. It is because of diet and stress. Therefore, these illnesses can be minimized and really eradicated, of course over time.
Fasting, Exercising, Eating more fruits and vegetables, as a matter of fact, plant a garden or grow something inside that can be potted. Read and understand ingredients if you buy processed foods.
We all lead busy lives, with much to do. Preserve the good health you have and fortify it. Be health conscious when making food choices.
We, as consumers, must become preemptive in our approach to better healthcare.
YOUR HEALTH … IS YOUR LIFE
