I heard someone say recently that we have just gotten used to feeling bad. We are used to having to take daily prescription medications and over-the-counter stuff and have no idea what it is to feel good. We keep adding more medicines and don’t ever get to the point where we are better. Not many people actually know what it feels like to feel good.
That stuck with me and I’ve thought about it for quite a while now.
Is that really true?
Our pharmacy industry is one of the richest revenue producing industries in the world. Over gold, oil and even technology. Americans spend billions every year on medicine both over-the-counter and prescription. So with all that medicine, are we getting better?
Is it possible to actually improve our health and get off these expensive medicines? Can we get to the point where they are not needed as much?
For both these questions the answer is very often YES BUT…
Sadly, I think we have actually gotten to the point in our society that we like our pills. We like to talk about how many pills we have to take, how much money we have to spend on them and all the things that are wrong with us. We actually don’t like spending all that money on medicines once we leave the pharmacy counter with our stapled little white bag of brown prescription bottles we forget about that until next refill.
I also think we have made it too easy to get pills. There’s a pill for everything now and we are a society that likes the quick release from pain, quick response to our needs and taking a pill is a relatively easy way to accomplish those things.
However, real health care is taking the intentional steps to improve your health. Very few of us are good at that. We are not consistent, we’re too busy and we don’t know the right way to do it. There are many forms of advice for diet and exercise that no one really knows the right way. It truly is a matter of finding what is right for your body and sticking to it. Sticking to it when it gets hard, when you don’t feel like it and especially when it’s easy to fall back into old habits.
Essential oils and natural supplements won’t replace the need to work on your health. They will however support those efforts and help you along the way. They will help in the beginning to detox and feel more energized so you can fit in a 30 minute walk and are more intentional about what goes in your mouth. They will also support you when you slip by keeping your body in the best position possible to eliminate those not so good things.
It’s a journey for all of us. I myself have had some achievements and failures but I continue to work towards eliminating those prescribed medications and improve my health.
