Taking Responsibility For Your Health

I don’t know why, we are so concerned about our health.  Whatever is wrong with us, our doctors can fix.  They have a myriad of drugs that cure any and all diseases.  I know people, who have three or four and even five different illnesses and the doctor is taking care of all of them.  The Diabetes doctor gives us Insulin by pill or injection.  The heart doctor gives us cholesterol medication or blood thinners, etc.  The cancer doctors give us Chemotherapy and Radiation.  The Arthritis doctor gives us steroids and Cortisone.  These medical professionals have cures for all diseases.  If you firmly believe that, then your next doctor visit should be to a Head doctor.  It is just not happening.  Doctors mostly treat symptoms of diseases.

You are one of the most perfect organisms in the world.  Your body and brain are perfect.  Your body has the ability to heal itself.  You have an immune system that cannot fail.  All you have to do, is nurture your body and brain, so that it can do the job that it was intended to do.  That job is to keep you have a healthy and long life.  Everything is there inside your body.  Your brain, heart, liver, kidneys, lungs and all the other parts of the human anatomy.  They are all there to help you live the wonderful life you deserve.

Taking Responsibility For Your Health

Unfortunately, we don’t know how to nurture our own body, properly.  It seems that we are too busy doing other things, rather than learn how to let our fantastic self,  fix our ailments.  We will attend schools for 20 or 25 years to learn how to earn wealth.  We will work for another 40 years to attain wealth and be able to retire.  Most of us will not spend any time learning how to be and stay healthy.  Now at the time, when we should be enjoying the fruits of our labor, we are gravely ill with one or more debilitating diseases.  Who would have thought?  It was us, who did not think.

It is just to easy to go out for fast food.  Too easy to not exercise.  Too easy to not get enough rest.  Too easy to not exercise our brain.   So now, we are in bad health.  The good news is that we can reverse our bad health and start getting healthier.  It is not “too late”.  Let me say that again.  It is not “too late”.

I am not talking about “fad diets” or crazy exercise programs.  Your body can cure itself.  You just have to feed it the right foods.  Now, before I go any further, I must say this.  Your doctor is your first line of defense.  Before you start any new form of diet or exercise, you must consult with him.  He should be consulted before you change diet and exercise or stopping any medication you are presenting taking.

The next step is taking responsibility for your health, your brain and body.  Read and learn all you can about your disease or illness.  Educate yourself in the many ways. you can nurture your body with food.  Learn about the foods, you should not be eating.  Processed foods, sugars, fast foods and sodas.  Water, water and more water.  A great deal of your body is made up of water. and you need to replenish that lost water every single day.

Get as much information as you can.  Let me recommend several good documentaries.

Forks over knives

Fat Sick and nearly Dead

Hungry for Change


Fed Up

These movies will give you a lot of insight on what you are eating and what you should not be eating.

Can you remember, while you were growing up, you heard these phrases?  “You are what you eat”   “Eat to live, not live to eat”   “All you really have in this world is your health”   As you reach maturity, you will realize, how true these sayings are.   It is not too late for you to regain good health.  Today is a great day to start.

Moral: Be More Responsible About Your Health.

Good luck and God bless all of us. Kevin Angileri
