Thinking Your Way Into Health | Kamilah Stevenson | TEDxWillowCreek

NOTE FROM TED: While some viewers may find the nutrition advice provided in this talk to be helpful, please do not look to this talk for medical advice. This talk, which was filmed at a TEDx event, contains strong assertions about a specific diet that lack sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here:

I’m sure that you are familiar with the old adage that you are what you eat. However, have you considered that you are what you think, especially when it comes to your health? Whether you have or haven’t thought about your health lately, you are sure to be thinking in a way you’ve never done by the end of her speech. Dr. Kamilah Stevenson’s unique approach to this topic leaves you planning how to quickly make changes to ensure a successful future.

Dr. Kamilah provokes you to finally take responsibility for your health rather than leaving it to chance or having to respond to a health scare. She even pulls the responsibility out of the hands of doctors, who she proves will not always have the answers or real solutions for you to live a quality life. Her realistic approach in pointing out how we have been careless in our pursuit towards a quality life makes you reconsider everything.

This witty and convicting TEDx talk will indeed serve as a wake up call for you. You’re new way of thinking will ultimately help to catapult you into a way of living that you may have never imagined or thought possible before watching this talk. Dr. Kamilah captures your attention instantly by sharing her personal health journey that will be sure to compel you to start thinking about your health much differently.

    Powerful message but so true. Most of the women in my family are diabetes so this hits close to home for me. And my friend's dad that has now passed away, was diagnosed with cancer started eating very healthy. Which prolonged his life for a few more years. You dont wanna wait until then to do what is best.

    Just diagnosed with diabetes.
    Drinking cinnamon tea, searching for turmic and ginger tea (flashes toxics and free radicals)
    Wear a pacemaker defibullator due to congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathy. Diagnosed with gallstones and a cyst on my right kidney. Did i add, i was just in the hospital due to dehydrated kidney's.
    Did i share with you, that once i could will my body to lose weight, my sleep pattern was great, my exercise consist of walking. And i couldnt have children because my bodies organs are too closly made? Now, that's a thought….
    Now think of where my and how my organs are no longer seated within their created spaces. No, fatty tissues are encroaching.
    I am attending my Weight loss, dietician and nutritionist meeting.
    Wish me luck! Please

    I thought I worked out hard enough to deserve the 'junk'

  • Posted on Feb 14, 2020 at 16:20 pm

    Wish I can like this video 100 times. God bless you for this powerful message. I just recently started being more aware when I go grocery shopping. I notice the junk foods ( chips, cookies, once cream and such) take up 90 percent of all the stores. It’s interesting that I only noticed when I started opening my eyes and became more aware. It’s like my eyes just opened all of a sudden. It certainly makes shopping easier and shorter because I go to that little section with the fruits and veggies, get my meats and I’m out. The sad part is most of these junk foods are targeted at our children
