We were shopping in town the other day when a group of ten or more joggers went running by. They were in training for an upcoming marathon. Some were obviously in great shape. Others were struggling and had a ways to go before they would be ready for a twenty-six mile trek. All were doing it, I assume, to improve their health.
I must admit I was not tempted to join them at all. Running twenty-six miles is not my idea of a fun health regiment, but more power to them for doing it. One thing they did remind me of, however, was that any attempts to live a healthier lifestyle should be undertaken gradually. Marathon runners to not start training by running twenty-six miles the first day; they add distance gradually.
Our bodies are really quite remarkable. They are capable of performing some pretty amazing feats but still, they need to be conditioned slowly and gradually.
We have mentioned before that healthy nutritional supplements are exactly that, supplements, additives, to help in attaining good health. They are not a substitute for good eating. They are not a substitute for regular exercise. They do not counteract the effects of smoking or excessive drinking. A good, healthy lifestyle is crucial to a good, healthy life. To achieve that good, healthy life, one needs to gradually change for the better . . . take baby steps and work into that new lifestyle.
And for those who need a little help in attaining good health, Mt. Capra offers the supplements which will put you over the top in your efforts. Our goat milk products are time-tested and praised by nutritionists. Our cleansing supplements, our infant formulas, our ghee and whey products, all are produced with one thing in mind: to help your body to find a natural balance and perform the way it was always meant to perform.
