It's all about PREVENTION

If you are healthy and thriving, you may want to keep that way for a long time and avoid getting sick.

To accomplish that, you really have to take care of yourself. Every person should be responsible and take control of their own health before it's too late.

Cancer, Heart disease, Diabetes, Obesity, Osteoporosis, Arthritis....and many other illnesses are Preventable Diseases that require major Lifestyle Changes.

Most people have no clue about how to do those lifestyle changes. You have to get informed, and from good sources.

The idea is to maintain Optimum Health through all our lives. Prevention and commom sense is key to a healthy and long life.

The aim of this blog is to help people become more responsible for their own Health.

"Prevention of disease should be primary, treatment secondary". Dr. Andrew Weil.

"Most of the patients have no sense of their own health and their own power to affect it for good or ill". Dr. Andrew Weil.

"I expect you want to be more responsible for your own health and wellness..." Dr. Andrew Weil

"Let the food be your medicine". Hippocrates.

Disease Prevention: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the Health of the world”. N. Mandela

"Consider this: We now know that we are encoded by about 25,000 human genes and their products, many of which represent potential new drug targets. Yet we have drugs for fewer than 200 of these gene products."Wells and Woolley M, Science Magazine, Oct. 2008, p.15.

Scientific Research is an amazing field. It opens doors to the unknown and can save many lives...we have to support this marvelous tool. But there is still a long way ahead of us before being able to cure or even alleviate many maladies.

For that reason, we must take care of ourselves. And how can we do this?

It is just plain and simple common sense....Preventing disease!. There are many ways to do it. Learn how. Educate yourself. It is your responsibility. Nobody is coming to the rescue. It is you who has to do the work. Do not wait to get sick. Do not wait for a painful awakening call. Act now. Be informed. Search at respected sources and learn how to prevent diseases.

Be aware of what you eat and drink. Keep an active life. Avoid stress. Have a purpose in life. Look for scientific resources and educate yourself and your family. Take charge of your health. Take charge of your Life.
