The number one reason prevention is your best health insurance

One fact is true for all of us. We are all getting older every day. Because of our conditioning with conventional medicine, most of us wait until we have something go wrong to address our health. And for some people it’s already too late. I have recently noticed a trend with new patients. There is a great frustration with a medical system designed to put a bandaid on symptoms. And often there is no bandaid and the patient is just told they are getting older and they’ll have to learn to live with it. Not great for quality of life! The number one reason prevention is the best way to go.

Once degeneration happens it becomes much more difficult to build back what you have lost – whether it’s bone density, cartilage or scarring in your arteries. Prevention of breakdown and even expansion of wellness like you’ve never known is possible when you stay ahead of decline. 

Just like it’s easier to never gain weight in the first place. Taking small consistent steps to create a level of health that keeps you thriving into your eighties and nineties may sound boring, but your quality of life will soar as you get older rather than slowly decline. And if you’ve been reading my blogs, you’ll know that your matching your healthspan to your lifespan is a goal we should all aspire to have.

If you have a nagging health issue you need to tackle, don’t wait. Take steps while it’s easy to fix. You’ll be kicking yourself later if you don’t. Even if everything seems great right now, there are always steps you can take to improve your current level of health like:

  • Reducing or eliminating stealth inflammation that can be found in detailed bloodwork 
  • Increasing mobility, flexibility and strength
  • Improving your sleep quality
  • Improving your lung capacity through breath and exercise
  • Improving metabolic flexibility by getting insight into your blood sugar
  • Reducing stress through life choices and meditation

There are others, but these are a good start. Choose one or more of these to start investing in your health now. Just like financial investments – prevention pays you back in compound interest – don’t wait until it’s too late.
