What happens if you leave SIBO, leaky gut, autoimmune diseases, all these sort of conditions untreated for years? Well, what do you think happens? What happens if you leave a marriage unsatisfied for years? What happens if you leave an employer unhappy for years? What if you leave anything in a crappy state for years? It’s just not going to work for you, is it? It’s not going to do much.
Leaving any condition, chronic condition, untreated, all it basically will do is it will mean further, as you get older and older and older, your life quality will deteriorate more and more and more. You’ll end up in a terrible state. I’ve seen so many patients over the years who regretted not having stepped in earlier to treat a condition, but rather leaving it until it was very late, or knowing a cause, but keeping things going until they thought, well, can’t do this anymore. I have to stop smoking. I have to stop drinking, whatever. I have to stop eating all this crappy food.
So unfortunately for men who belong to the John Wayne school of health, I’ll be all right. There’s nothing wrong with me. I’ll keep on going. I’m bleeding from the back side, but I’m not hurting. I’ll be fine. We still get guys like that. Women tend to be more proactive. I can absolutely agree with that. I’ve seen that for a long, long time. But men can tend to be a little bit slapdash when it comes to their health. And that’s really sad. So for guys, particularly by leaving conditions untreated, it’s going to hasten their demise.

But the last thing you want when you get to my age is to have a good relationship with somebody but have poor health, because health is the biggest wealth. You all know that out there. But people still think Rolex is the biggest wealth or Lamborghini or something like that, or my new car, whatever it is that they’re all happy with, but they don’t think about the old frame that they’re carrying around, is it?
So if you value the quality of your life, you’ll get these conditions sorted sooner rather than later. Particularly SIBO and leaky gut, because they’re precursors for most chronic disease. Science now has shown us clearly that all diseases start in the gut. So this is the place really to get sorted, and what better way to get it sorted then eating the right food with the people you care and love about. This is how you have a good life, isn’t it? And this is why I like the Greek lifestyle, the Mediterranean lifestyle, the Italian lifestyle. I love this kind of lifestyle because it’s about sharing food with people. It’s about not getting palpitations because there could be gluten on your plate. It’s about sitting down and having a nice glass of wine with someone with really nice food and laughing and enjoying life. Because that’s what it’s about. Maybe I’m silly, but that’s my opinion anyway, for what it’s worth.
If you’ve got a chronic condition, for goodness sakes, get onto it. Always try, if you can, particularly if you’re in a country where you’re able to, is to see a naturopathic physician who’s going to help you. He or she will have had good training and be able to assist you, at least in a hopefully non-drug way to make your headway in your chronic condition. But remember, the longest journey starts with, okay, clicking. Click. I’m about to click the mouse in a minute. The longest journey starts with the single step, and the single step for you, if you’ve got a chronic condition, is to seek someone out who can help you, to partner with you. There’s plenty of people out there.
