Knowing and Achieving Health

Knowing and achieving our natural state to enable success

Health is togetherness

This is the story about what ails us, what makes us well and describes what health really is.  To know health, we have to know about illness yet strive not so much to be healthy but to live in a manner that is healthy by creating the conditions for health and happiness for all.

Ill health is caused by a lack of education, a lack of knowledge, a lack of access to adequate food, water and shelter perpetrated by another level of ignorance and greed resulting from self centredness and belief. In other words, illness for the most part is caused by our fellow humans who have failed to recognise their humanity that even the rich create their own suffering.

Are we getting more stupid?

We could live in peace, we have the tools and technology to feed the world and ensure everyone's wellbeing. Yet a third of the population goes hungry and instead of peace we've eternal war.

To smarten up, we all need to take responsibility for ourselves. This is a challenge when you're a wage slave and only free men and women can be responsible, yet freedom is something most have been led to fear.

It's time to break free and the simplest way is to sit still and relax for 10 minutes or so every day. You can call it meditation, but it's more just being present with yourself without any agenda. But if you're fearful of this, you need to know that all your spooky ideas have been created in your own mind and you're in charge - or not.

Our Declining Libido

Actually it's more than just libido. Its a general reduction in our quality of life that is causing a reduction in our fertility. This is happening not only to the human species, but other species as well and the cause of this is pollution.

Within current political and social boundaries, it is predicted that as a species, we will become extinct within 100,000 years as our levels of infertility increase. With the technology we now have, we can create artificial humans and it is predicted that the test tube will become our primary means of reproduction in the near future.

If you libido and fertility are in decline, there is hope. You can take control of your life, diet and lifestyle not matter what rung of the societal ladder you are on.

The Decline of Health Care

In most countries, health care has become a commodity and the citizens as consumers are increasingly ill informed despite the improvements in information technology.

Perhaps our biggest disease is apathy, we are far more concerned with paying off the latest gadget than being interested in the declining state of our nation despite the warning signs such as the sharp decline in fertility and the increasing expense of health care and education.

Depression Bites

The cost living is increasing and while business focus is on the price of oil, what affects most people is the increasing cost of food, healthcare and education.

For the affluent, this means little, but for the average citizen it has far reaching consequences. As the cost of living rises, one area people often seek to make savings in is with food.

In hard times, many will eat a little less or eat foods that cost less. Lower cost often means lower quality  and as regulation is lax, low quality food will be saturated with chemicals and be detrimental to your families health.

Many processed foods are laden with preservatives and fillers with very little food value and they may be manufactured from residues of the original products or leftovers from another manufacturing process and an even worse probability is that cheap processed food may be made with genetically modified products or contaminated with agricultural and industrial chemicals.

The Hidden Consequences

While consuming cheap foods may help to stretch your dollar further, the consequences of poor quality foods will be gradual reduction in the quality of life, a higher incidence of disease and a lower life expectancy.

Surviving hard times

Establish the goal of self sufficiency - one of the fist things to do is to begin growing some of your own food and cooperating with your neighbours to produce and share food and recourses. Herbs and fresh leafy greens are easy to grow and they can be grown in small garden plots and in containers on balconies. Fresh herbs provide flavour as well as vitamins and mineral and have a mild therapeutic value. Common weeds such as dandelion, chick weed, purslane and fat hen, even some garden flowers can be eaten and look for other wild foods specific you your area.

Food for thought - The only absolute certainty is that of a closed mind
