Changemaker Of The Month: Dr. Mark HymanMarch 9th, 2015
Living a healthy life shouldn’t be as costly or difficult as it is. That’s why I’m happy to be working with Thrive Market — both as their Changemaker Of The Month for March and a partner — to make healthy eating more accessible and affordable for everyone.
Throughout the month, I will be sharing some of my recipes, tips, personal routines, and even an excerpt from my new book The Blood Sugar Solution: 10-Day Detox Diet on the Thrive Notebook. I hope you’ll read them and take this opportunity to learn more about my personal health philosophy as well as check out Thrive Market.
I believe that we all deserve a life of vitality — and that we have the potential to create it for ourselves. That’s part of the reason why I have dedicated my career to tackling the root causes of chronic disease and harnessing the power of functional medicine. The meals you cook and the foods you eat impact the way your whole body functions. Choosing nutritious, whole foods instead of heavily processed foods is one of the most significant strides you can make towards a healthier overall lifestyle.
Your healthy choices don’t just benefit you — they help create a society where good health is the norm. Too many families live in food deserts where they simply can’t find healthy food. Thrive Market is doing something to help that, too. When you sign up for a new Thrive Market membership, they will donate a free membership to a family in need. This company is democratizing access to healthy food and products, one membership at a time.
