I believe that health is a sense of overall well being characterized by vitality, enthusiasm, and a positive outlook on life.
We all want that! But, sadly, disease is all too common and many of us go through life not feeling so great.
For some of us, the loss of vitality is so gradual that you may not even notice it happening. You might realize you don’t have the energy you used to have, you haven’t slept well in ages, or you have been bloated every day for months. Others get blind-sided with illness. It seems to come on out of nowhere. A lab test comes back showing something completely unexpected and your doctor wants you to take a pill for it, or you literally wake up one morning with some strange swelling or pain or you can’t get off the toilet, or maybe you can’t get out of bed.
Dealing with illness is frustrating, scary, and makes you feel powerless; a victim of some unfortunate luck.
From a young age, fear of illness drove an intense desire in me. I did not want to get sick. I did not want my loved ones to get sick. It became my mission in life to do my best to prevent disease from happening in the first place.
Less than 10% of disease is caused by genetics. The remaining diseases are caused by the exposome- everything in our environment that we are exposed to from the time of conception to death. The exposome includes the air we breathe, the food we eat, our social interactions, our lifestyle activities, and our inherent metabolic and cellular activity.
We can control a fair amount of these exposures by being conscious of how we treat our body, becoming environmental stewards, and optimizing the way the body functions.
We are not helpless victims, waiting for our luck to run out before we get sick. We have a great deal of control of our health and our bodies have an incredible ability to heal.
