There’s No One Size Fits All

… outside of Jesus.

No matter how healthy, beneficial, or amazing one thing might be for some, that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing for every person. I like to give the example of my BFF turmeric.

Turmeric is an amazing food. It is the root of the Curcuma Longa plant. It’s also arguably the most powerful herb for fighting and potentially reversing disease. Some of its reported benefits include:

✨ anti-inflammatory
✨ boosts skin health
✨ anti-cancer
✨ helps treat depression
✨ combats arthritis
✨ pain relief
✨ immune supporting
✨ prevents blood clots
✨ digestive aid
✨ antioxidant
✨ liver detoxifier
✨ antibacterial
✨ promotes wound healing
✨ blood sugar balancing
✨ helps prevent and treat diabetes
✨ improves respiratory health
✨ and more

I add turmeric to nearly every savory dish I make. I also take a turmeric tincture by @leefyorganics regularly and recommend it far and wide. I drink turmeric tea regularly. I sing it’s praises multiple days a week here and anywhere. Turmeric, turmeric, turmeric.

My best friend of nearly three decades is allergic to turmeric (amongst other things) and can experience anaphylaxis if she ingests it. That’s not the norm. It’s not common at all. And she, like you, is a unique person unlike any other person who has ever lived and who ever will live.

In the words of one of my favorite children’s books, “For never before in story or rhyme (not even once upon a time) has the world ever known a you, my friend, and it never will, not ever again.”- Nancy Tillman, On the Night You Were Born

No matter what it is or who or even how many are recommending something, it’s important we remember we are uniquely made. Bio-individuality must always be considered. We also have individual circumstances, values, abilities, convictions, desires, and dreams.

We can and should use always use our own judgment, use critical thinking, and evaluate things for ourselves.

“But test everything; hold fast what is good.”- 1 Thes 5:21
