I saw Sam Faiers on Sunday Brunch on TV a little while back.
She seems like a really nice lady
Sam once suffered badly with Crohn’s herself but from what sounds like making significant diet and lifestyle changes now lives very happily, and seemingly reasonably free of symptoms.
Apparently (or so the gossip mags would have you believe) one of Sam’s favourite facial treatments is a “The Hollywood 24 Carat Gold Facial.”.
This basically consists of pasting 24 carat gold and caviar on your face and leaving it there for 10 minutes before removing.
It (allegedly) makes you look much younger and is great for wrinkles (though at $330 a go it probably has a bigger effect on your wallet rather than anything on your face!)
In the list of things that Sam has done that has helped her turn her health around, this is going to be way way way down (in fact, if we are honest, it doesn’t make the list).
That’s not to say that spending a little extra money on your health isn’t worthwhile.
For example, while I think they are very reasonably priced, the supplements from Autoimmune Institute consist of very high-quality ingredients and, therefore, aren’t the cheapest on the market.
Most supplement companies will put anything and everything in their products to bulk them out and keep the cost down (and their profit margins high).
But that doesn’t do anyone any good, especially when you suffer with a chronic health problem.
You need the best.
Not necessarily long term but while you are getting your body back to where it needs to be cheap ingredients just won’t do anything but harm you.
Take the Advanced Fish Oil at my supplement company, Autoimmune Institute, for example…
There are a number of reasons I think its easily the best fish oil available. Including:
- High omega 3 levels (the main benefits from a fish oil are the omega 3 fats but a lot of other products are actually quite low in these).
- It is independently tested for mercury and other toxins (mercury and other toxins are commonly found in fish oils and it can seriously harm your health).
- It comes in triglyceride form (most cheaper options aren’t in this form and therefore aren’t very well absorbed into the body, making them much less effective)
- It is from sustainably sourced, wild fish (meaning a better-quality oil, that is much more pure, and has less impact on the environment).
- It tastes great!
Very few (if any) other products on the market can make those claims.
It’s not the cheapest fish oil there is (though it’s certainly not the most expensive, and is a fairly big bottle that would last 1.5 months at 1 teaspoon per day).
And it’s also backed up with a 90-day money back guarantee (try to find another supplement company that offer that).
I toyed with whether or not to write this as it just sounds like a sales pitch but I do genuinely believe it to be important that you don’t fill your body with cheap foods, cheap ingredients, or cheap supplements when you are suffering with your health.
Of course, there can be exceptions to the rule, and if you are paying more you should know why that is.
But cheaper does often mean poorer quality – and for someone with a serious health problem, that can cause a lot of issues.
An investment in your health can pay dividends for the rest of your life…
Though smothering gold and caviar on your face probably won’t help!
