Physical Morality

Alternative health

If I hypothetically asked you to list the 3 most important things in your life, what would they be?

checklistWait, this shouldn’t be hypothetical, let’s play for real. What are they?

Write them down before you read on…I’ve seen a multitude of combination’s with God, family, health and job usually vying for the top three spots.

Is health in your top three? If so, what day-to-day actions do you take to that substantiate your answers?

Do your lifestyle choices reflect that list? (I did this this exercise myself a while back and it opened my eyes and woke me up).

Do you allocate time for activities that promote and build health?

When I ask patients if they exercise or not a frequent answer I get is, “I try to.”

“Health is a natural byproduct of a body that functions properly.”

Dr. Ron Spallone

For a body to function properly you must eat well, think well, move well and most importantly act well.

How much time and focus do you put into lifestyle, exercise, attitude and nutrition?

Ponder the following scenario…

If someone else merely observed your life and was responsible for coming up with your top 3 list, would their list look like yours?

What are your standards regarding health? Your boundaries? What lines won’t you cross?

How much time, energy and resources do you allocate to building health?

“I believe the answer to health care is…self care!”

Dr. Wm. Sears

Our current ‘health care’ system is a misnomer- it treats sickness and disease. It doesn’t build health- that’s your job. (It seems funny to me that natural health care or holistic health is considered alternative.)

The overall ‘set-point’ of your health is either gained or lost incrementally, every day. Just focus on being healthy today.

Just try it today. Wake up tomorrow and repeat.

    I agree with your statement that neck pain should not be taken lightly. It is always better to consult a doctor or chiropractor near you. Some may even advise that you have an x-ray in case it’s a more severe condition. What helped me was a good posture in sleeping to prevent neck pain. Also, check if your cervical pillow for neck pain is the right size or too big for you. You can check for recommendations for the best (neck pillows) that are highly recommended by doctors.
