taking health into one’s own hands

Most of us recall a moment when our parent or a guardian pointed to a medical doctor and said: “you see that man in a white coat? You have to listen to him. He is a doctor and he’ll make this go away….”

Inevitably, at that moment, we gave away some responsibility for our health and turned it over to someone else. Doctors or any one else could never “fix” our health better than we can. No one is invested in our wellbeing as much as we are. And even if they cared as much, no one else has the time and energy to commit to our health as we do.

So it is time to revisit our understanding of how committed we are to our health and happiness and how much are we willing to do to create it. Our life depends on it.
