Our Healthy Body Support goal is to help you maintain your body in a healthy state, thus providing energetic service for the longest time possible.
The World Health Organization’s principles indicates that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Well Care or Sick Care?
Yet, most of us today see the medical profession (including doctors, nurses, the universities that teach them, hospitals, clinics and the pharmaceutical industry) as a means of detecting and treating disease. We go to the doctor when we are sick. We go to the hospital when a life threatening injury occurs. Doctors are not trained in nutrition, they are trained to make money by diagnosing illness, prescribing pharmaceuticals and by operating on patients.
Here are the top 10 reasons people see their doctors
- Skin disorders;
- Osteoarthritis and joint disorders;
- Back problems;
- Cholesterol problems;
- Upper respiratory conditions, excluding asthma;
- Anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder;
- Chronic neurologic disorders;
- High blood pressure;
- Headaches and migraines; and
Except for an annual physical, we do not go to see our doctor when we are feeling vibrant and energetic.
It’s clear that most people do not view their doctors as a means of maintaining health. Rather, they view the medical profession a way of regaining health once they are sick or injured.
And, there is a good reason for this. Doctors are not trained to provide nutritional health care advice. Their skills are in treating sickness.
Sickness is Big Business
And this sickness industry is big business. More than 21% of individuals in the US used 3 or more prescription drugs in the last month. The average spending per person for prescription drugs in 2013 was $858.
The costs for medical operations is equally astounding. Here are typical costs for the more expensive medical operations:
- Intestine transplant: $1,121,800
- Heart transplant: $787,700
- Bone marrow transplant: $454,400 (from yourself) to $657,800 (from a donor)
- Lung transplant: $450,400 (single) to $657,800 (double)
- Liver transplant: $523,400
- Open heart surgery: $324,000
- Pancreas transplant: $275,500
- Kidney Transplant: $259,000
- Tracheotomy: $205,000
- Destruction of lesion of retina: $153,000
We have become so accustomed to this “sickness mentality” of paying for care when we are sick. We have forgotten that health should encompass all aspects of maintaining a dynamic and active life. So “heath” goes far beyond detecting and treating illness and trauma.
Healthy Body Support
We at Healthy Body Support want you to be continuously healthy so you do not need drugs and operations. We believe the body was designed to provide service for hundreds of years. The Bible tells us of people who lived over 900 years.
Our environment, however, has become polluted with toxins and our soils have varying concentrations of essential minerals. The foods we consume and the air we breathe are not as they once were.
In these pages we will try to present well researched ideas that can help you experience a good life of health and energy. It will take some effort on your part to live a healthy life. But, the results will be better than many years of painful suffering.
Good health and energetic life to you all.
