To achieve maximal health and wellness you need to accept responsibility for your health. This goes against what most people hear or have heard. A lot of times we are taught that it really doesn’t matter how you take care of yourself. The food that you put in your body isn’t important. Improper thought processes, coping mechanisms don’t really matter. We are taught to believe that you don’t really have to accept any responsibility for your health. Most people after they get out of college or high school, never stretch, rarely work out and put toxins in their body on a daily basis. It’s really pretty simple if you take care of your body it will take care of you. Again, we are taught that it doesn’t matter how you take care of yourself because there is a pill or a chemical that can save your life or extend your life. This is one of the biggest lies of the 20th and 21st centuries. If you take care of your body it will take care of you. I can’t stress this enough. The number one cause of death in the USA is Cancer, Heart disease is Number 2 and there are now 26 million diabetics in this country. All of these are mostly lifestyle disease they are about how you take care of your self. Yes there is a genetic component to disease but genetics is given too much credit. Your genetics will only be expressed if they are allowed to. If you abuse your body, don’t take care of your body then those will be allowed to happen, or it creates an environment for it to happen. So it is imperative you take care of your body, if you do it will take care of you. There are 6 things that if you do these and practice these will help you to be healthy. 1) Have a good diet. Supplement with Nutrients and Vitamins 2) get plenty of Rest 3) Exercise; which includes cardiovascular, resisted muscle training and flexibility work. 4) Eliminate or decrease toxins 5) Have a positive mental Attitude 6) Have a healthy functioning Nervous system. If you do these you will live a life where you thrive rather than just survive. I will talk more about these soon. If you have questions e mail me drjeff@michiro.org
