In today’s world, a world in which we are exposed to over 80,000 toxins a year, in order to maintain “wellness,” we need to prevent illness. Wellness is prevention!. Wellness programs that are being promoted in this day and age are looking to help people prevent illness and maintain their physical, physiological and mental integrity for longer periods of time.
The current burdens on our healthcare system are many. However, each individual must accept as much responsibility as possible for their own health. If we, as individuals, don’t take an active role in staying healthy, and we don’t do everything possible in order to continue to thrive as we get older, the sheer numbers of individuals requiring health care will overwhelm our resources. The more you can do to help yourself the better. This includes eating as healthy as you can, making healthier choices as to the food (aka fuel) you put in your body, and supplementing with vitamins and minerals, as needed. It has been said many times that “You are what you eat.” Atherosclerosis, Syndrome X, obesity, and Type II Diabetes, for example, do not usually occur without a considerable amount of help from the individual – specifically what that individual is ingesting! Often this results from a lack of education as to what types of foods are contributing to the problem, and what types of foods would help to avoid the problem. This is the type of information and education that Dr. Suzan Starler, D.C. can provide. You can learn to use nutrition to help to prevent illness and promote wellness! You don’t need to wait until you are ill to start using nutrition to promote wellness in your life. Start today!
