Managing Symptoms VS Healing of Disease

At some point in our life we need ask ourselves the question - do we want to simply continue to manage the symptoms of our illness/disease or do we actually be completely healed of it? 

 

If we answer that we just want to manage the symptoms so that we can live from day to day, the pharmaceutical companies will be happy to oblige. They will keep you on a faithful customer and continue to offer you the chance to get their drugs that have a multitude of bad side-effects, some which they don't even yet know of because it hadn't been tested long-term on a human being yet. It could be that perhaps later down the road they take it off the market because too many people died from it or had other bad effects, but that is not going to stop them from offering it to those who are happy to comply - believing what they say: "the benefits outweigh the risks". Really?? Do they??? In the long run, they don't have to live with those side-effects and they could care less whether we live or die; they just want us to continue to pay them for the drugs. They will even let us know that the health insurance company will cover most of the cost of those drugs - but who gets to pay the high price of the premiums? We do, out of pocket or out of every paycheck. If we are on Medical, guess who pays for that? Our taxes. In the long run, we actually are paying for those high-cost drugs in one way or another. And if all we want to do is "manage symptoms", once one drug has side-effects they will put us on another drug that will help manage those symptoms, and then on another. They may keep us alive, but at what cost? Are we becoming the "living dead" that can barely even survive from day to day, but since we are "managing our symptoms" well, we think we are okay and we are thankful for those who are giving us these drugs? Is this really the way we want to live?

 

If you answer no to that last question, please know that there IS a better way... we don't have to simply manage our symptoms until the day we die. We can actually completely reverse most diseases out there because most are simply illnesses that can be prevented and even cured with LIFESTYLE CHANGES. 

 

Yes, it's going to take some effort on our part to heal, but wouldn't it be much better to THRIVE the rest of our days, instead of merely surviving from day to day? This new lifestyle is worth the price we pay, not simply monetarily but also emotionally. If you are consistent and become disciplined enough to maintain this new lifestyle over the years, even though many will want to get you to quit and get back to your old habits, you will be thankful that you did and you may even desire to share your story to give them hope as well. 

 

What lifestyle changes am I talking about? It depends on each person, of course. However, usually major changes need to happen in the way we eat, our exercise patterns, our sleep habits, our stress management, and, an area that few think about but that is majorly impotant, a change in the products we curently use on ourselves and to clean our home. 

 

Are you ready to stop managing symptoms and start healing disease once and for all so that you can THRIVE the rest of your days? If so, then ditch the things that are causing some major harm in your body currently and take on habits that enhance your health. Start your healthy lifestyle TODAY - don't keep putting it off until some future day because 10 years from now you will still be managing symptoms and your health will have spiraled down even more.
