What is good health and what does it look like?
Every, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, health and wellness company including those pushing weight loss, all tell us the same thing. Look good, feel good, or look young feel young. How many times have you heard those phrases, but are they true?
In a word NO. Humans are obsessed with longevity and aesthetics, not health.
I also hear things like;
‘Well it was a shock, he was fit and well and in great form and looking great, I only played golf with him last week, and he suddenly collapsed and died of a heart attack’.
The stark truth is this person was not as fit and well as he probably thought, he had a drinking problem, he was overweight, his diet was terrible, but he went to the gym 3 times a week and played a round of golf and walked the dog every day.
Superfit athletes also suddenly pass away as well so staying super fit can also cause health problems.
To look young, we inject BOTOX, it is made from a neurotoxin called ‘botulinum toxin’ which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. We inject this into our skin. Just 1 gram of this could kill 1 million people. This is called wellness!
So, what is the meaning of good health? A six-pack? Marathon running? Or living well without any defined health conditions.
What is the meaning of good health?
Health is big business, it’s also a belief system; we have handed over sovereignty of our health to the government. Whether you go NHS or Private they all basically operate the same way. Prescription drugs or operations, that’s your choice (apart from A&E or ChildBirth, and they still administer drugs and operations).
Most doctors are trained in universities to write prescriptions for drugs which they get from a manual, you see this when you go into an appointment, here are the presenting symptoms this is the drug required.
If you fall and break a leg, or collapse with a heart attack A&E is the best place no doubts. But if you need to reduce bad cholesterol, I personally wouldn’t take statins, these come along with side effects that are eventually worse than the initial illness.
What is the meaning of good health, below is an example of the number 1killer in the world.
