When it comes to taking care of your body, your health, you have 2 options. Option 1: take great care of your body and you will live your life in health as you get older. Or, Option 2: don’t put any time and thought into taking care of your body, and you will have multiple diseases the older you get.
I am not interested in Option 2! I do not want to battle, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke. I do not want to battle everyday feeling like absolute crud! That is not how I want to live my life. It is also very important to me that I raise my boys in a healthy way and teach them the best way for them to take care of themselves for their future.
I choose Option 1. I actually chose this option even when I was 14 years old. I wouldn’t take an anti biotic if my Mom took me to the doctor for a little cold. I knew that my body was going to get rid of that little cold. Also at age 14, I became a vegetarian. Then at 27 years old I enrolled in acupuncture college. Knowing there was so much more about the human body that could be learned than just what the Western medical model was teaching. I wanted to help people get healthy.
Option 2 comes with years of taking pharmaceutical medications. All of which have side effects and are the catalyst for elderly people needing a second, third, fourth, etc medication to address the problems created by the first medication.
Option 2 comes with years of living a very unpleasant quality of life. You might be completely unaware of the details of what life lived un-healthfully is like. The complete effect of how your life is effected everyday. Or, the expense involved. But, ask co-workers, and friends with older parents. Or talk to someone with diabetes. Or talk to someone with heart disease. Or talk to someone with high blood pressure and ask them what the side effects are from the medication they are taking that controls their blood pressure.
I want to be that 80 year old that is still working out at the park. Still taking yoga classes. Still is traveling happily to great places in this world!
And I already know, my kids are counting on it!
