I am a firm believer than each and every individual MUST take control of their health. After all, it's YOUR health. You cannot relinquish control of your health into the hands of anyone else-not your doctor, your spouse, anyone. To take control, means to educate yourself and to find out as much as you can. To make it easy, here is my "Healing Film of the Week. "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead." This film changed my life and I often times will watch it to remind myself on why I have chosen to live a healthy lifestyle.
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
