I am a healthcare practitioner since the last forty years. In short, due to the application of healthcare principles that I have researched, assimilated and applied during the last four decades of my life illness is virtually unknown to me. I have not spent one dollar on doctors or medications and I also have not had a headache, stomach ache, cold, flu, indigestion or any bodily discomfort. And the interesting point here is that I know exactly why. It amazes me that our healthcare system fights tooth and nail with the rising costs of healthcare yet fails to recognize that the application of very simple principles in ones lifestyle is all that is necessary. Science observes the human body in a very complex manner and in so doing arrives at the conclusion that the human body is complicated and in some ways they are right - the human body can be seen as complex however, from the standpoint of the individual robust health and vitality are simply waiting for us to adopt a simple, sober and healthy lifestyle. Period. It is not rocket science. We are actually doing ourselves to death in this free society where the majority of people continually create their own dis-ease. The human body will serve us in an honorable manner if we just stop abusing it. Discomfort in the body, and dis-ease symptoms, are quite simply the body attempting to carry-on a dialogue with us in regards to how we are interacting with it. Actually, creating dis-ease in our experience takes a lot of work and has much to do with our over-doing while creating an experience of vitality and health is the result of embracing what I refer to as the art of sobriety. This does not mean that we have to become saints, although I don't find this such a bad goal to strive towards, but it does mean that if we want to contribute to our own experience of wellness then we only need to stop doing ourselves to death. These simple principles are what need to be taught so that the burdon can be lifted from the shoulders of our healthcare system. And so that this country can rebuild itself one individual at a time. Let us also not forget that the application of these simple principles is not without its huge rewards. I believe we could agree that when we do not feel well - because we continuously over-burdon our bodies day in and day out - then our ability to function and to enjoy life is impaired for sure. On the other hand, by pursuing a lifestyle that embraces the art of sobriety our daily experience almost overnight becomes vibrant and alive. For me the choice is simple - just the way I like things.
