We all like to think that we live our lives in integrity, that we take care to tread lightly and do no harm to ourselves, others and the planet we inhabit, and that we protect ourselves and our loved ones as best we can, from as much as we can, as we go about our daily lives.

Most of us do feel that we're doing the best we can, and we probably are, based on the knowledge that we currently have, about ourselves and the world. But how certain are we that what we're doing is really working in all the ways that count?


Think About This...

* Have you ever thought about the quality of the food you eat? Do you know whether or not it contains GM ingredients, or harmful chemicals,or whether your system can even process it properly to keep you healthy and safe from illness and disease?

* Have you given any thought to what you put onto your skin or your hair, whether animals have been used to test it, or whether it contains harmful chemicals that can end up being stored in your body tissue if your system can't break them down?

* Have you thought about the medicines you take, for a variety of symptoms, and whether they are addressing the root cause of your problem or simply relieveing those symptoms? Are the drugs you are taking really helping your recovery, or are they actually keeping you unwell?

* Have you considered what's in the chemicals you bring into your home - those cheap and cheerful cleaning materials for example, and whether they are as safe, eco-friendly or effective as you think they are? Have you considered more natural but equally effective alternatives to the products you're currently using?

* Do you have an alternative strategy for reducing the amount of plastic you use that cannot be easily recycled, that potentially leaches it's chemicals into what it contains (e.g food, liquids, cosmetics) ?

If you have found yourself becoming increasingly more mindful of this kind of stuff, that's fantastic news, because awareness is always the beginning of positive change!

But if you haven't thought much about any of that yet, it's never too late to start! In increasing numbers, people are beginning to question what they are putting into or onto their bodies, and what they are bringing into their homes that may be causing them to become or remain unwell. An ageing population coupled with a desperately under-resourced health system means that more and more of us are electing to take responsibility for our own health, in the interests of staying alive longer, and not being a burden on a health system that is already struggling to cope with trying to assist a growing number of people who cannot help themselves.

Personally, I think taking charge and being master of our own health and well-being is the ONLY way forward. Modern reality and the state of the nation mean that we can no longer expect a miracle cure, or even a speedy solution in many cases! We have to sort ourselves out, as it were, and optimise our own health, rather than expecting someone else to have enough time to do it for us. It's not enough anymore, to believe that others are responsible for whether or not we're healthy.

That means thinking more about what we are doing, as consumers. A lot of people are saying that there's a fortune being made in keeping people sick; that the sickness industry is doing too well to want to make people better. Cynical? Maybe! Incorrect? Maybe not! Just because you're a cynic, it doesn't mean you're wrong...

If you think about it, the people who are saying how much money there is in sickness may actually be onto something. Personally, I think they are entirely correct. The drug companies make many, many millions from repeat prescriptions that simply 'manage' conditions, such as high cholesterol or blood pressure, chronic pain, skin complaints and diabetes. There's even a growing school of thought that alleges chemotherapy doesn't work for cancer, and that diet and lifestyle modification are the keys to getting well and staying that way.

I genuinely believe in the power of nature to heal us in gentler and more thorough ways. It's why I've retrained - quite late in life, some might say! - to work with people who are struggling to achieve wellness through conventional medical means. Yes. I'm into the second half of my life, but it wasn't so long ago that I didn't think I'd even get here. I was so sick, I couldn't see my own future. Now I can, and I'm the living breathing proof that it's never too late to get control of your health issues. If you're struggling like I was, I can help you turn things around, and look forward to a long and healthy life.
