Physical Health

It is fascinating to learn how our bodies work, how prevention is so important in illness, how our lifestyles are the keys to our health and how our physical health profoundly influences all other aspects of our lives.

Our bodies are miracles and we should treat them as such. Gaining and maintaining physical health should be an obvious major priority. However, the vast majority of us take our bodies and health for granted….until something goes wrong. Then we expect our doctor to quickly and easily fix us. We daily sabotage this miracle we live in with terrible food, insufficient exercise and insufficient knowledge of how it is works.

We, individually, must take primary responsibility for our bodies and our physical health. It is fascinating to learn how our bodies work, how prevention is so important in illness, how our lifestyles are the keys to our health and how our physical health profoundly influences all other aspects of our lives. We can’t live forever but we can intelligently adopt lifestyles that will help us live as long as possible as healthy as possible.
