Health

  I am not a doctor – so I can’t help you with any medical advises. For these you will need to consult your doctor. But you will find (on the bottom of each page) medical articles on which I based my information. My advise is that after you read the information I presented – to print the references and have a discussion with your doctor.

  While I can’t help you medically, I am a certified Life Coach and Professional Engineer (PEng). So I can┬ácounsel and encourage you in taking the best decisions in your personal life.

What is health?

  According with Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Health is the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit; especially : freedom from physical disease or pain.

  According with Wikipedia:

Health is the level of functional and metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans it is the ability of individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social challenges. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in its 1948 constitution as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

  But beyond of any definitions. You know when you are healthy. You feel good, you are happy, you are vibrant and ready to take on all the challenges life throws at you.

  Let’s see what we can do ourselves to achieve or come as close as possible to this feelings.

  Under this heading I included some of the most common issues that knowingly or unknowingly everyone of us struggles today. I also included here a condition that I am personally affected. On the road of trying to keep it under control (got it in remission at least once) I found out so much information that directly sent me to its root cause. Modern medicine is treating the symptoms (and I agree most of the times successfully) but you will never get your health back is you don’t find the causes. Except if you want to be on medication all your life, I personally think that you have a duty to yourself to find the root causes and eliminate them while you keep the symptoms under control with the medication. Once you have the things under control you can work with your doctor in tempering down on the medication. I believe that medication is a very good short term solution. But just look at the side effects of even the most innocent looking drug – and you can see how many more issues you can develop on the long run staying on them. It’s very important to find a doctor that works with you, listens to you, really helps you. Don’t get discouraged if takes time to find that doctor. And most of all – DON’T GIVE UP. After all is your health at stake.
