It’s up to YOU to take control of your health
Healthcare costs are rising much faster than our incomes, and people are living longer. That’s a bad combination. Businesses and the government are planning ahead. They are dodging the bullet by passing more of the financial burden on to us, the consumer. But, what can we do? Who’s looking after our best interests?
Well, I’ve got good news, and I’ve got bad news. The bad news is, nobody is going to take care of your health, but YOU. The good news is, you have the only tool you really need to take of your self… the internet. All you have to do is use it.
All the information in the world is at your fingertips. Question everything. Do your own research. Is your doctor telling you to take that pill because it’s best for you or is it best for him (or is it the only solution he knows)? Is your surgeon telling you that you need surgery because it’s best for you or is it best for him (or is it the only solution he knows)?
Our current Allopathic (synthetic drug) medicine has only been around for a few hundred years. But, other forms of medicine have been around for thousands of years. Why would we not consider them? If they didn’t work, why would they still be around? You’ve got to decide, do you want to improve your health, or do you want to help your doctors and surgeons make their car and house payments?
Don’t get me wrong. Doctors and surgeons have their place. In case if trauma, I would not hesitate going to a doctor and/or surgeon. We have some of the best in the world. But, when it comes to chronic disease, they are my LAST line of defense.
I’ll give you an example. I found out that the company I worked for was going into bankruptcy. Soon after, I developed a bleeding ulcer (obviously stress related). I went to the doctor. She wrote two prescriptions. one was for an anti depressant and the other an antibiotic. I took the anti depressant when I was sitting at my desk at work. When I stood up about a half an hour later, I evidently passed out. I woke up on the floor by my desk. I’m not sure how long I was out.
I decided to get on the internet and research “bleeding ulcers”. I found out that most bleeding ulcers are caused by a stomach infection of helicobacter pylori bacteria, and that active Manuka Honey kills this bacteria. I went to a local health food store and bought a jar. After the first tablespoon, I had no sign of a bleeding ulcer! I took a tablespoon a day until I finished the jar. That was over six years ago, and I have never had a bleeding ulcer since then.
Since then, I’ve done tons of research about health on the internet. And there are three things that I’ve found to be the most fascinating:
- The impact of the food that we eat has on our health
- The impact that stress has on our health
- The amazing technological advancements available to today for improving our health
