In America we are trained that health and well-being comes in a pill bottle. We see commercials on TV that tell us which pills to ask our healthcare providers for. When we go to see our provider, we have 7-10 minutes to tell them what is wrong so they can give us a pill and move to the next patient. Healthcare is about what medication should be prescribed after a disorder has been identified.
Even what are called “preventative” appointments are really screening appointments for diseases. This cycle is perpetuated by the insurance system, as it is set up to reward quantity over quality. What is not advertised is that we are getting sicker and that the pills are treating symptoms, not the underlying cause. We are told that we should eat better and exercise, but that is the end of the conversation.
Where does wellness fit in? How do we stay well and prevent diseases before they start? How do we reverse or mitigate diseases that have already begun? Most healthcare providers want to address these questions, but they simply don’t have the time. And patients have been trained that health comes in a bottle. Pills don’t cure Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases.
What does it take to be well and to stay well – body, mind, heart & spirit? Let’s be honest and real – it takes personal accountability. It takes becoming responsible for creating our own wellness. It takes learning about lifestyle modifications (eating well, sleeping well, being physically active, and managing stress, among others)…it takes being curious about the habits we have and why we have them…it takes asking questions…it takes being skeptical about the status quo in our healthcare system, food system, and society… it takes effort.
