up in the morning with a deep sense of gratitude simply for
being alive. Health is having energy to work, study, and
enjoy life. People in good health sleep well. They breathe
with ease, digest food with ease, and sleep with ease. They
can concentrate and learn with ease. They do not often have
Health means our blood, heart, liver,
digestive organs, and other body systems all function well.
First, we must give our bodies what they
need, and avoid things that harm them. We create our health
with what we eat and drink; with the air we breathe; with
the hours we sleep; the thoughts we think; and how we deal
with the stresses we face.
Good health is a family, school, and
community responsibility. The community affects health by
its laws about air, water, food, sanitation, and building
materials. Schools affect health by what they teach
children; by the food in the school cafeteria; by what they
sell in vending machines; and by the amount of time students
are able to exercise.'' There are many challenges to good
health. Knowledge about health is important. It costs less
to create health than to treat people after they become
sick. Right now, the U.S. doesn't have a health care system.
It has a "disease care" system.
Health is preserved with healthy foods,
clean environments, and kind thoughts. Diseases develop when
foods are contaminated, environments are polluted, and
thinking is toxic. The genes become angry and cause diseases
mostly when they are offended by toxicities of foods,
environments, and and chronic stress. Food, mold, and pollen
allergy add to the risk of diseases, as do synthetic
chemicals. These are diseases such as obesity, diabetes,
heart disease, asthma, chronic fatigue, and arthritis can be
reversed and the body can heal itself when the harmful
causes are removed.
Doctors are mostly trained to help people
who are ill. They treat diseases. They fix broken bones and
repair bodies after accidents. They save lives with
medicines and surgery when necessary. However, drugs and
surgery do not create health. Our spirits and bodies create
our health. It is important that one should be under the
care of ones doctor in the treatment of illnesses.
