I attended a Conference where the physician who spoke had been studying Syndrome X (aka Metabolic Syndrome) which is basically when diseases cluster with obesity. (More on Why that happens in future posting).
This doctor concluded from his studies that it was actually pretty simple to reduce the tendency of developing disease.
Remember – Disease is NOT just happenstance…we don’t “CATCH” diseases like heart disease (which leads to heart attacks and strokes), diabetes, cancers and neurological disorders…we DEVELOP them over a long period of repetitive insulting actions against the body.
Imagine how your risk of having an injurious or even fatal traffic accident would increase if you drove a motorcycle at excessive speeds… with no helmet…no safety garb…disregarding roadway laws! There’s enough risk in driving with safety in mind (like living an intentionally healthy lifestyle) to exponentially increase your probability to pain, injury and death to blatantly go against what we know is safer. Sadly, the way many people, Americans particularly, live is parallel in its inevitability as driving with no safety sense.
I realize that in many cases it’s partly about education…or rather the lack of. I believe Understanding breeds ACTION. When you realize what you’re doing is doing to your body…Or what you’re NOT doing is doing…it compels you to want to act differently.
This is one of my primary intentions behind this website and blog.
Empower through support, encouragement and education.
