Becoming healthy and maintaining good health is much more than following the doctor’s orders or taking the right pharmaceuticals, agreeing to surgical procedures, chemotherapy, radiation or other invasive treatments. We must remember that our health is largely up to us. Taking proper care of our body, mind, and spirit can keep us in optimum health. The choices we make, on a daily basis, can lead to more vibrant health or can lead to a never-ending struggle with chronic illnesses and diseases and everything between the two extremes. When we’re sick, we must take a holistic approach, which includes eating the right foods, consuming natural herbal remedies, and exercising to achieve a sense of health and well-being. Unfortunately, too many of us fail to recognize the importance of these lifestyle practices in the achievement of overall good health. Too many of us have come to depend on the medical industry to “treat symptoms, not heal our ailments”- leaving us sicker than ever.
