The Iceberg Connection
What Every Person Needs to Understand !
If there is one message regarding one's health that I could drill into the hearts and minds of every person living it is this:
Symptoms are not minor issues. Symptoms are red flags of something greater happening within the body, underneath the surface you can't see.
The tip of an iceberg is visual, but it's only a fraction of its whole. Underneath the water is a massive block of ice. It can't be seen from the surface, but it's there!
Symptoms of sugar and carb cravings, low energy, stress, excess weight, and even conditions such as high blood pressure, autoimmune issues, and other discomforts are indications of something else happening within the body.
We often accept or look upon symptoms as normal, not understanding the seriousness of what they lead to, and what could develop in the years ahead.
It's those things, the block of ice inside us, that cause us to experience so many unnecessary, chronic health issues.
But the good news is, we can change direction and re-route our lives and health.
I encourage you to take a good look at the direction you are headed, and if you know you are headed down the wrong road, and need to be re-routed, then make the decision today ... to begin chipping away at, and melting the block of ice inside you.
As the block of ice goes away, symptoms begin to disappear. And that's EXCITING !!

On a personal note, if you feel trapped in a body that can’t seem to lose weight, or overcome your desire for sugar, I want to give hope. With the right program, right steps, support, and accountability you can overcome these. I’m living proof and thousands of others are doing it as we speak.
