Your health and wellness are yours, and yours to manage!
You are your primary health care provider!
These statements are a part of my philosophy of personal being, and I encourage my clients to think in these terms while embracing alternative medicine and holistic health. These concepts are extremely important since no one is more affected by your health than you are! This “no brainer” often gets overlooked when dealing with health care. It is a reversal of “not being able to see the forest, because the trees are in the way”. In this case we can not see the solutions because the problem is in the way, and is so overwhelming.
Today we expect instant and automatic solutions to our problems. The “press this button”, or “take this pill approach” to life! We have come to expect that regardless of what we “allow” to happen to ourselves, there is some wonderful pill to “cure” it.
A part of the problem is that we are no longer expected to be responsible for what we do! Several years ago a fast food chain was sued for causing people to get fat. Think about that for a moment. I consumed more calories than I burn, so I gain weight. But it is not my fault; it?s yours because you provided me with the food that I enjoyed so much! Is it just me, or does this sound a bit like not accepting the consequences of one’s own action?
The bottom line is we must take more responsibility for what we do. Become more responsible for what goes into our body, and for its maintenance. Each of us must gain more understanding of what it is our body needs. We each must take more notice of what our body is doing, or not doing.
Personal healthcare is an ongoing everlasting deal. Do not wait to get sick, or to succumb to disease, before thinking about wellness. Begin now to learn about how to stay well!
Your personal physician or healthcare provider can not provide you with all of the answers.? Most of the answers come from your body, learn to listen to it and understand it! Become your primary health care provider and let your physician be your health care assistant!
