About Me (James) and the Healthy Ronin Mission
April 13, 2019
Hello everyone, and welcome! To this, the Healthy Ronin website. I’m so glad you’re here with me today. Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is James, and I am the Founder of Healthy Ronin. My mission in life is to help you. It is to unlock the secrets of finding individual health, starting with reversing the damage of the modern diet, and eating in a natural, ancestral, and enjoyable way. I have a passion for nature and health, and realise just how much they overlap! I try to always maintain a healthy lifestyle, and it would mean a lot if I could convince and help others to do the same.
I’ve been passionate about health and nutrition for years and over time I have learnt a fair amount through personal research and my own experience about the paramount role that diet has to play in one’s well-being.
Now whilst we don’t always stop in the supermarket to wonder “what if?” when we see those organic apples, or that pastured organic turkey, sometimes it really is the small decisions that make a big difference.
And the more we take care of our body and mind, the more they will take care of us.
That’s the message that I want to spread.
So stick around as we explore the ways we can learn to take care of ourselves and steer our own destiny, and why we should…
Honestly, I wasn’t always the healthiest kid in town growing up (so to speak). But by no means was I the unhealthiest, and in a way that’s one of my greatest tools.
You see, just like many other kids, I was no stranger to some of the worst products in the food industry today. And nor was I to binging my evenings away indoors hypnotised by the highly addictive technological terror we all know as video games. However, being lucky enough to inherit some of my Father’s good genes (thanks!), I do have some athleticism to guide me a little. And although I knew like most that such a lifestyle was unhealthy, I never truly realised how much so until I had learnt it the ‘not so easy way’…
We’ve all had our moments in life when we realise that it’s time for change. For me, one of the biggest of those moments occurred towards the end of 2017, when I started to see my own health decline – and that of some of the closest people around me. And although some newfound inconveniences were indeed hard to deal with at first, it was through them and my efforts to overcome the damage of my own mistakes that I found one of my greatest strengths: a determination and passion to become the healthiest and the best that I can be…
I got to work from then on. It started online, researching for many hours, reading studies, listening to experts, and buying multiple books that in turn would give me the knowledge and the skills that would turn my life around, and transform the way that I saw the world, the food industry, and myself.
Realising The Truth.
It wasn’t long before I started to see just how hard things in the health and food industries really can be.
There is a lot of misinformation out there – some of it thought to be “common knowledge”, and a lot of it either stopping people from taking control of their health, or overwhelming them when they try! Whilst the relationship between diet and health isn’t always an immediate or noticeable one in daily life, on both a molecular (genetic) and far greater (medical and wellbeing) level, processed and poorly prepared foods leave us at a much greater risk than many realise. This isn’t meant to scare you – far from it – instead, I hope to enlighten you.
I want to help you see this, and start to make positive, noticeable, and permanent changes in your own life. Because I have seen the effects of a positive diet on negative health first-hand. I have changed my life, my mind set, my physical health, my knowledge and skills in the kitchen, and even my spiritual health. It all started with diet, and expanded into the entire approach I took to lifestyle. And you can start your own journey to health freedom today! Take small steps, see the benefits, and over time, you’ll be amazed. Healthy Ronin is my vessel for spreading this message to the world, so that we together can work to prevent sickness and promote well-being.
Wouldn’t that make the world just that little bit better?
Not only can a healthy diet benefit everyone’s health, but also the planet’s.
Healthy, Nutritious, and Delicious – that’s what a diet should be. The ‘Healthy Ronin’ is within each and every one of us, and it’s waiting! I’m still discovering mine now, and you can too! Join my – our – journey…
So then, my actions towards making the world a healthier place – even if just a little – begin here with my blog Healthy Ronin.
Here, knowledge and pride and putting words to action come first, and we challenge detrimental practices and ideas, so that we too may contribute to the growing number of people making great changes every day to become healthier, happier, and help the planet on their way.
Take your first steps in achieving this by becoming a Healthy Ronin insider with our free Health and Diet Newsletter! Discover more information, and get updated on posts and occasional offers and discounts.
Be a better you. And we can be a better us.
