I believe that Australia’s supposed “Healthcare industry” is largely just a sickness industry focused on band-aiding issues with pain medication and reactive treatments.
For when I see smokers, heavy drinkers or people who live mostly off processed food wait-listed for heart surgery or chemotherapy it seems obvious to me there is a link between lifestyle habits and true wellness.
And yes there are the rare exceptions to this where an outwardly healthy person gets unwell too, so please don’t think I’m being dismissive. But the harsh reality is (as reinforced by lots of emerging science) our daily choices of what we eat or not, our exposure to stress or not, our exposure to toxins or not, and our bodies ability to deal with all of these things comprise a lifestyle.
Yet rarely are we as consumers taught to look within and to really review our lifestyle, food choices, exercise routine, emotional wellbeing and toxin exposure in a quest to get healthy, UNLESS we see a holistic practitioner.
And because a holistic approach takes longer and doesn’t always provide instant relief – because it looks to treat the cause, not just the symptoms of illness that have usually been manifesting and accumulating in the body for YEARS – many people give up or dismiss these approaches before their full benefits are realised.
So I implore you to consider; What is wellness really?
Do you understand the difference between a lifestyle of wellness with PROACTIVE daily habits, vs one with reactive SICKNESS and ILLNESS as the primary focus for yourself or your family?
Learn more about what I think are the differences between these two approaches in this free webinar.
If this blog or video sparks something in you, I invite you to reach out to me for a free consultation on ways to begin to change your health and lifestyle habits, or embrace a healthier outlook of overall wellness.
The future is created by the decisions we make today.
