Healthy People Don’t Get Sick

nor do they take prescriptions

Your body is fully capable of staying healthy,
active and vital, during the totality of your life.

Conclusion:  Everyone knows someone who has had their happily-ever-after dashed on the rocks because their health became a problem – or their worst nightmare!  The choices you make, every day, have a direct effect on your happily-ever-after.
Choose wisely!

As early as 1965, pioneers of Senescence, like Dr. Leonard Hayflick, observed the phenomena of programmed replacement of cells in the human body.

  • They found that while some cells are replaced more quickly, every cell, all tissue, every organ, system and structure in the human body is replaced every seven years.  (Each cell being reproduced exactly as it was the first time using a recipe programmed at conception, called DNA.)
  • Estimates are that the body replaces up to 300 billion cells everyday in order to maintain the viability of 750 trillion cells that make up the human body.
  • This mind challenging task is accomplished by combining the nutritional components derived entirely from the diet.

Healthy is the normal state for the body
sickness or diseased is not!

There are four situations that affect wellness in the United States.

1.  Bad luck at birth:  if you were born healthy, it is unlikely that genetics has anything to do with your state of health.
2.  Infection and/or infestation:  virus, bacteria, fungi or parasite.
3.  Injury or accident.
4.  Degenerative disease:  the gradual decline of your overall feeling of well-being.

NOTE:  Doctors, for the most part, can address the first three situations of well-being.  Unfortunately, the fourth and largest segment of the wellness dilemma, degenerative disease, continues to be an issue.

People should be concerned when their health begins to decline.

Many people do nothing.
Whether they choose to ignore the signs of degenerative disease for financial reasons, personal beliefs or ignorance, they accept the ravages of declining health as part of aging and elect to suffer in silence, needlessly.

Other people expect someone else to be responsible.  They:  

  • Experience the elation when their Medical Doctor gives them a little piece of paper with the prescription for something to fix their complaint.
  • Accept the bothersome and sometimes dangerous side effects.
  • Make a life long commitment to the prescription and the side effects.
  • Experience the disappointment when nothing changes or something equally or more troublesome pops up.
  • Repeat the cycle, over, over and over until all of the little pieces of paper take control of their lives.
  • Accept the hopelessness of more little pieces of paper and declining health.
 Some people are learning that they have an alternative by:

  • Accepting the responsibility for their own wellbeing.
  • Recognizing it is easier to invest in health than to pay for illness.
  • Accepting that in order to change the way things are – they need to change some of the things they do.
  • Becoming confident that, given the proper nutrients, care and enough time, the body can and will repair itself.
  • Making reasonable choices that help them experience the joy of health.

There are Three Approaches for Managing Your Health.

1.  The first approach is to do nothing.
This approach accepts the decline in well-being as inevitable, condemning sufferers for the remainder of their life.  Frankly, it’s not a very appealing prospect.

2.  The second approach is to react to a symptom.
This approach is effective when there is a definitive cause – it has a beginning and an end.

It involves someone asking the question: “What brings you in today?”
Depending on your answer, you will receive a service.
. . . In the case of certain infections, injury or accident the intervention stops the decline attributable to the complaint which provides the body the time it needs to react to the situation and heal.

NOTE:   E.R. personnel know:   “It isn’t the gun shot that kills you, it is your body’s inability to react to the change of circumstance.” , so they stop the bleeding, stabilize the victim, then wait for the damage to heal.

IMPORTANT:  Ideally, the reactive approach should have a beginning and an end.  For example:  Kill a bacteria with an antibiotic – wait for the body to heal, Repair an injury – wait for the body to heal, Suture the wound – wait for the body to heal.

When the cause is less clear, many Doctors choose  to address the symptoms of the complaint instead of investigating possible causes – it becomes an intervention without an end.

This limitation of the reactive approach contributes to frustration and a sense of hopelessness that many people experience when they are trapped in the reactive approach – the endless prescriptions and visits to the doctor’s office.

3.  The third approach is to proactively promote and maintain health.

This approach is grounded in a tenet that the demands of modern living and deficiencies in the modern diet contribute to a gradual decline in general health, the integrity of bodily structures, tissues and organs that are being produced or replaced on a daily basis.

Further, besides a general malaise, this shortfall in the diet negatively impacts the body’s ability to respond to incidental circumstances such as infection, accidents and injury.

NOTE:  The proactive approach contends that the complaints associated with dietary deficiencies can be overcome, or avoided altogether, with the judicious use of dietary supplements and common-sense lifestyle modifications.

The proactive approach may be effective when used to:

1. Sustain the healthy body
2. When there is no satisfactory finding of a definitive cause for a particular circumstance
3.  When the reactive approach presents an unsatisfactory outcome.

The individual, choosing to employ the proactive approach,

  1. Examines past circumstances that may affect the situation
  2. Evaluates various daily actions and choices that may be affecting overall well-being
  3. Makes appropriate changes to address the impediments
  4. Creates a protocol to change the unsatisfactory outcome
  5. Accepts the premise:  Insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting the outcome to be different the next time

NOTE:  Many people find this approach to be hopeful because of their positive involvement in the process and the experiential outcomes.  Others, unfortunately, are overwhelmed with the responsibility.  There are professionals, like the NUPRO Natural Health Consultants, to help demystify the process and easy to follow “blueprints” to provide a step by step instruction like the NUPRO 3-step plan.

Sadly, the cost of insurance premiums is expanding the number of people who choose to do nothing. In the end, this will certainly exacerbate the consequences of neglect and elevate the level of profound intervention.

By Comparision

The medical approach prefers that people elect to follow the status quo – accept having a symptom managed with one or more prescription(s) as the means to address their issues of well-being.

NOTE:  National attention, focusing on the dangers and recalls of several mainstay drugs, has the public examining the benefits of total reliance on the reactive approach to health and frankly, questioning the wisdom of that reliance.  The increasing costs for insurance and medical treatment, the expense and safety of prescriptive medicine, trips to the Doctor’s office and diminished quality of life makes being unhealthy very expensive.
The saying . . . it is easier to stay healthy than recover what has been lost . . . is exactly right.

The sensibility of the proactive approach for well-being offers a real alternative.

It offers people who have become frustrated and disenchanted or other people who elect to take control of their own destiny, the opportunity to make a positive contribution to their well-being.

Also, it provides those who cannot afford the price of admission for the reactive, medical approach an affordable means to address well-being.

Insanity is: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome.
Sanity is:  Changing the things you do to change the way things are.
