Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness -Hippocrates
Do you want to cherish the delights of the world or do you want your prime-time years(40+) to be brief, and your calendar littered with doctors appointments? The choice is entirely yours.
This makes me downhearted that in our prime time, we are focused and working too hard, to secure our declining years, that we have forgotten to live in the present moment and are busy, like a honeybee, for the reassurance of retirement security. We have literally no time to eat healthy, breath, sleep, and relax. With such a mindset, exercise is a distracted thought. We are investing money and time in the old-age retirement plans. But what about Health retirement plans?
Do you have any Health retirement plans?!
We are working too hard towards saving money for the retirement, but not saving our bodies to enjoy it better. Not everyone can save as much money as they would like to, or have as much free time as they want. But you can work to save your health to enjoy all these! How will you enjoy your pension/retirement plan with collapsed health conditions? All your savings will be taken care of by Doctors and hospitals! Am I making sense?
The human body is resilient and can bounce back and repair itself with the right care. In my previous post, I have shared my transformation story. Be an asset to your family, not a liability. Make health your priority and hobby! Otherwise,

Metabolic syndrome, High blood pressure and diabetics are becoming an epidemic. India has been declared as the diabetes capital of the world! Isn’t this nasty and concerning?
Fortunately, these conditions are 100% preventable and reversible with your lifestyle changes, which need persistence, commitment and determination to the changes to achieve your desired health goal; but tragically, these measures remain unknown. We are bombarded by the media, Google and the scientific community with too much confusing, unhelpful messages. The key question is to ask-Is it working for you? Healthy living does not have to be complicated and expensive. It has to be simple, sane, enjoyable, efficient and sustainable!
