Some key points about health:
- Health care and medical care are two entirely different things.
- Health is what you protect or damage via the decisions you make.
Medicine is an attempt to fix disease or injury. Current medical practice
generally works against health; good health practices support good medical
- Health care requires attention to what you eat, how you exercise (and
when), how much rest you get, how you handle stress, and how you manage your
environment for toxicity.
- There is no real mystery to what behaviors and decisions improve or
degrade health. Poor decisions are typically made due to carelessness and
willful ignorance rather than not having access to "the secret."
- Exemplars of health are all around us, but the most famous was probably
Jack LaLanne. We do have role models.
- We also have common sense. Obviously, eating a diet rich in nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods such as fruits and vegetables is a better
choice than eating a diet low in nutrients but rich in toxins (such as corn
sweetener and hydrogenated oil).
