Are you doing everything you can to stay healthy and live the best quality of life possible? Well, unfortunately most people are not proactive about their own health these days. Most people are misinformed about preventatives, proper diet and exercise and just go about their lives doing as they please; eating unhealthy, not exercising and not thinking about how this will impact their future! And so what do they do when they have a problem? Well of course they turn to the doctors who prescribe them expensive, unnatural pharmaceuticals.I am sure you have heard the saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!" Well, it's true! But, it's not just preventing! It's knowing what to prevent and how to prevent it; and naturally if at all possible! (i.e. If I continue to eat fast food every afternoon for the next 20 years, it will probably impact my heart health at some point; so I think I'll eat salads from now on instead!)We are a nation that is blasted and inundated with messages that pharmaceuticals can fix anything and everything. The truth is though, they don't really fix anything; for the most part they simply treat the symptomsâ€¦forever! After all, that's where the money is right? If a person only needed one pill to cure their depression, how would the pharmaceutical companies make money? Or better yet, if doctors were prescribing cardiovascular exercise to combat depression, still, how would the big pharmaceutical companies make any money? So the current approach for most Americans is to just go about their business; sit on the couch every night, eat steak and potatoes every night, and when something goes wrong, the docs will just write a script to "treat" the condition. By the way, have you ever seen a commercial advertising the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and mental health? No, me either!It is very unfortunate that physicians do not focus on prevention and lifestyle as much as they should; that they don't teach the benefits of exercising, not just for your heart, but as a natural way of treating depression and other conditions. And that is just one natural form of prevention and treatment.There are many others! Personally I prefer natural supplements and methods of preventing and treating sickness and disease. How about just boosting your immune system for example; by now I am sure you definitely know about vitamin C and how much it can help you fight off illness. And what about saline rinse for your nose when you are having allergies or fighting a cold? Omega-3? Ginger root? Milk thistle? Water?Your health is your responsibility ultimately. You have to be your best advocate, proactive and do your own research to find natural ways to both prevent and treat illness.
