Good health does not mean freedom from disease, nor does it mean you get a pardon from sickness. Everyone gets sick: it’s just a matter of degree, the state of your immune system and how quickly you recover. If you are in good health, yourbody has what it needs to do its job and recover. Good health means being proactive and taking responsibility for the state of your health and immune system, so that you are able to lessen or eliminate your chances of acquiring modern diseases like hypertension, heart disease, cancer and diabetes - all of which have the ability to cause much more long term damage to our bodies. Good health does not mean looking like the celebrities on t.v. or in the movies, nor does it mean being skinny or looking like a competitive athlete, because these people get diabetes and heart disease too.
Your own “good” health is as individual as you are. There are healthy people of all sizes (excluding the obese). Even though it is a certainty that we all must die, we don’t have to die from these modern “plagues”; we do have a choice. Our bodies are the most amazing machines on this earth: they have the ability to withstand decades of neglect and abuse, yet still “reinvent” and heal itself. There are no quick fixes and there never will be. Good health is a lifestyle based on commitment and discipline. If you don’t at least make steps in the direction of good health, then your alternative is choosing a lifestyle to which the above mentioned diseases are certain.
It’s all up to you.
