“I NEED HELP! What about Allopathic Medicine?”
Are you asking me, “I don’t have the time or energy to improve my health correctly, safely and/or effectively, so are drugs and procedures really that bad?”.
Okay, okay, this question is a tad bit “tongue in cheek” but I am trying to make a point here. Plus, lets be clear, as obnoxious as that question is, the truth is, the majority of America views drugs and procedures not only a viable option for Healthcare, but a preferred one!
But to answer your question, “YES, they are”! They ARE really that bad!
How in the world have drugs and procedures become anyone’s primary focus on improving their health?
The majority of medicine being practiced in America today is considered Allopathic medicine, versus that of Complementary or Alternative Medicine. Allopathic medicine does not improve our health by curing the cause, Allopathic medicine treats the symptoms.
Listen, if we would just take a small percentage of the money and time spent on treatment in this country, and then focus it on prevention, we would ALL be in a better place; ALL OF US.
The truth is, around 75% of human life should be living free of disease. Yes, it is true, we don’t have to be suffering from Chronic or Degenerative Diseases. Genetic Diseases make up the MINORITY of the diseases in this country as Lifestyle Diseases clearly make up the MAJORITY.
So, why are we NOT living free of disease? I think the major reason is because our focus in the United States is on the “Magic Bullet”, NOT “prevention” or even a “steady dose of self-discipline”.
For example; if you want to make lots of money in the health and fitness industry you do one, or a combination of, the following things:
1) Sell programs promising unreachable results with outrageous statements
2) Sell result-oriented supplements guaranteeing unbelievable results
3) Sell infomercial products promising drastic results in a very short period of time
Most people don’t have enough time or energy to improve their health because they don’t value their health as much as they think they do and/or they are still waiting for the “easy way out” with the introduction of a “magic bullet” into their lives.
My recommendation is to reassess what is really important in your life and re-prioritize your health as I can tell you; the healthy, non-risk magic bullet everybody is waiting for is not coming in your, or my, lifetime!
