Think about it, change often occurs when a devastating situation occurs or when it is often too late. For example, the media cautions us daily that weight gain is linked to cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, and other disorders such as diabetes. Getting out and moving 30 minutes can lower your risk of many non-communicable diseases. The evidence proves a regular physical fitness routine combined with proper nutrition lowers disease can lower mortatlity rates. Despite the valuable evidence, people still do not take time to walk or do some other form of physical activity. When my father died of lung cancer, his legacy taught me a profound lesson. We must take proactive steps to focus on contemporary health issues and how they impact our daily lives early on.
Despite the daily challenges, we must begin to look at the entire dimensions of health more carefully to influence holistic health on all levels. We must encourage step-by-step changes in mental, physical and spiritual well-being early, rather than later in a preventive approach. We must make the philosophical practice of medical education understandable and practical for all humanity.
Life will bring it's own challenges and lessons teaching us to embrace a more holistic perspective of wellness. Dr. Michele J. Doughty
