Free help for those who want it…
One of my goals since I started Mother Nature’s Diet has always been to help as many people as possible for free.
I honestly believe that good health is our birthright, and it should not be something we have to pay for.
I think ‘they‘ have made the world of diet, weight loss, healthy living, ageing, fitness, disease prevention and other related areas, all so super-complicated in recent decades.
They spent years telling us that fat is bad, then fat is good and sugar is bad. They told everyone to go running, then they say everyone has knee and back problems from running, and we should all be lifting weights. Cholesterol is bad, no no cholesterol is fine. Too much sugar causes diabetes…no no there is no evidence that sugar causes diabetes. They contradict, and they argue, the so-called experts, over everything.
And if you read The Daily Fail or certain other newspapers, then over the years they have run headlines telling you just about everything causes cancer or heart disease or makes you fat!
It’s all so bloody confusing. And all so bloody frustrating!
- I personally spent 20 years lost in that confusion
- I yo-yo dieted as I tried every fad, followed every trend, read all the diet books
- I ended up overweight, confused, and with knackered knees (yes, it was the running!!)
So, out of this confusion, the ‘health guru industry’ has emerged (ummm, maybe I am a part of that…whaddya reckon?) and suddenly we are told the answers we are searching for are in this £99 pound diet plan called “The 7 Magic Secrets to weight loss”, or the answers are in the £39 per month gym plan “Total New Body” or such like, or you just have to sign up a mere £397 for this 6-month group coaching course and all will become clear to you as they reveal “the secrets the doctors don’t want you to know” or whatever. You know, there’s lots of this stuff out there, I’ll bet you’ve seen the adverts.
And that’s OK, I guess, these folks are all just trying to earn a living, just like me, and so good luck to ’em. Providing they are selling something genuine, and providing it works, at least for some people, then I guess that’s OK. But here at Mother Nature’s Diet, I see things a little differently.
I don’t think you should have to pay to learn the basics, to have the basic knowledge of how to be healthy. I don’t think there are any ‘secrets’ or ‘magic formula’ – I think that most people need a little guidance, to cut through the dietary and nutritional confusion, and then there is just common sense, personal responsibility, and good old fashioned hard work.
For that basic knowledge, I don’t think people should have to pay. They should teach this stuff at schools, leisure centres, health centres and pharmacies around the country, for free. Because there are a lot of folks out there who can’t afford to pay.
Bottom of the income ladder
Sadly, the reality of our society is, that the people with the most money, talking in broad demographics now, tend to enjoy the best health, and the people at the bottom of the income ladder, sadly, tend to suffer the worst health, overall.
Our obesity and type-2 diabetes epidemics, manifest highest in low-income socioeconomic groups. Smoking rates are higher in low-income groups. Heart disease and reduced life expectancy are a bigger burden in low-income groups than among the wealthier citizens of our lands.
Because of this, I have always, since the first day I started Mother Nature’s Diet, offered the basics of the 12 Core Principles for free. Always. It’s been about eight years now, since I started blogging about the Mother Nature’s Diet way of life. In fact I first called it Mother Nature’s Diet because I needed a name for my first blog, to chart my own personal health transformation!!
Now of course, I do offer additional products and services that cost money, but the fact remains that the basics are there for free. The difference between my approach and so many others out there, is that they all tend to offer “the secret formula to this” or “the 21 steps to that” or “the 7-part plan for success” all as benefits you get once you pay up and join the program.
- No catch
- No secrets
- No magic formula “on the inside”
- Just free
So, if you are skint, and you want to get healthy but you can’t afford to blow a bunch of cash doing it, all you need to know is here – 12 Core Principles – for free. That page offers you links through to 12 further pages, where you can read all about the steps you need to take to improve your health.
Some people might say “Ah but the lifestyle is expensive…” or “Organic veg, grass-fed meat…that’s elitist.”
I don’t agree.
We take the money most people spend on –
- take away food
- loads of body sprays and OTT cosmetics and toiletries
- junk food
- over-priced coffee
- 400-channel satellite TV
…and we spend that money instead on organic veggies, grass-fed meat and free range eggs. Once you learn how to reallocate your spending, it can be done.
We all have choices.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
New site, lots of goodies for you
I have recently made some site upgrades for you at www.MotherNaturesDiet.com and there are lots of fabulous free resources available for you.
I truly hate these sites you visit and the pages are bloated with ads, you can’t watch or read anything without signing up and being spammed daily, every mouse-move seems to cause another pop-up to appear…it all drives me nuts!
We don’t have any of that crap at Mother Nature’s Diet. When we say it’s free, it’s free. No email, no pop-up boxes, no autoplay videos, no sign-up demanded, no catch. Just free stuff for you.
Please, share these completely free resources with anyone you know who might need or want the help. You and they have nothing to lose, and only improved health to gain.
- You can learn all about the 12 Core Principles
- You can download and read three entire free ebooks – just completely free
- You can subscribe to this wonderful free newsletter!
- Or you can subscribe to follow this wonderful MND blog, which has published over 680,000 words over the last eight or nine years, all advice on weight loss, disease prevention and healthy living – for free! That’s about six novels worth of writing, for free!
But Karl, you are selling stuff too…right?
Erm, yeah, I am. I mean come on, a guy has to earn a living you know…
Now of course, what I can give away for free is the information. No bullsh*t about magic formula or trade secrets of the fitness pros…just common sense healthy living advice. That I can give you for free.
But I can’t afford to give away all my time and help too. I mean, if I spent all my time helping everyone for free, how would I feed my own family? This is still my job, my business, and so in order to take the message out to more people, I want to grow the business, to hire more staff, to do more marketing, to reach and help more people.
The best way to reach more people is to start with my book! It’s just a few quid, just a few bucks on Amazon Kindle, please get the book now, for you, for a loved one, for a friend or family member, thank you!
You can get the information for free, but if you want additional motivation and inspiration and a chance to meet face-to-face and ask questions, then come to a live seminar and you’ll get all that and more.
If you read those free pages online explaining the basics of the 12 Core Principles and then you want more, you want the details and the science and long explanations behind those Core Principles, then again, you need to buy the book and get all the details and lots more besides.
Or if what you really need is ongoing support and encouragement, a ‘tribe’ of like-minded people to help you stay the course and stick to your new good health practices until they become habit, then you might like to join MND Life! our community subscription, where you’ll get more education, motivation and support every day, to help you along your journey.
So there you have it, something for everyone, whatever your budget – and plenty of it is free.
I have long believed that healthy living has become far too over-complicated, and we need to keep it simple for those who most need the help.
For those who can’t afford the books, the courses and the seminars, please, pass on this post, pass on the links now, and help them to cut through all the noise and get some simple, honest, common-sense based, scientifically sound good health advice.
That seems to me like a good way to help out a friend or loved one and get 2019 off to the right start for all of us.
Good health for all!
