The answer to this question may depend on what you demand of your body. Just living in an urban area puts a great burden on us, due to physiological stress, pollution and chemical exposure, lack of time to prepare healthy meals, traffic, etc. Your ability to handle this stress depends a great deal on your lifestyle. So, how would your rank your current health status on a scale of 1-10?
What do you expect your health to be like in 5 years, based on your current lifestyle choices? You will only get back the health you build. it is not a matter of luck and it is not dependent on your genes. It is largely a matter of the choices you make.
Like anything else in life, you master an ability by studying and practicing it. Healthy living has become increasingly difficult because of the chemicals and toxins we constantly ingest and inhale. The good news is that we have more access than ever to good information. It is always a matter of choosing how to spend your valuable time. In order to be healthier in five years than you are now, or at least stay on top of the aging game, you may need a superior physician. The Chinese understood this thousands of years ago.
“The superior physician helps before the early budding of the disease. The inferior physician begins to help when the disease has already developed.” Huang Ti Nei Ching Su Wer. Yellow Emperor’s Classic Internal Medicine.
If we dare to be healthy and feel our best, the quality it brings to life is invaluable. It cannot be bought with gold. It takes knowledge and application. And like most lofty goals, it requires some sacrifice.
Consider the value of a body that functions and serves you well when you count out your supplements. They are a measure of how you are investing in your future health.
