“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.” -Hippocrates
This quote while simplistic is indeed very truthful in relation to human wellness. Wellness is about how a person manages his/her life. Fresh air, sunlight and exercise are some of my favorite things in relation to the summer. I so look forward to swimming laps every morning. I suffered for quite some time with depression. The summer activities and the way I conduct my life make it so that depression does not have a stronghold on me. I greatly look forward to beginning my days in the pool in my backyard I feel very healthy because of the amount of exercise that I do. Cardiovascular wise I can’t even comprehend why a person would ever begin smoking. I am just happy that I pursued athletics in high school so that never appealed to me. As we are getting older I have seen people’s parents pass from things that were preventable. It is very sad that people would knowingly engage in such dangerous behavior. The quote by Hippocrates rings true as people are encouraged to live their lives in a healthier manner. Thankfully I feel as though I have gotten these headaches under control. My neurologist believes that they were brought on by a med that I was taking. It was almost unbelievable since I had no such side effects in the beginning of taking this med. Like anything, your body’s reaction to things can change. Thankfully I have figured out that by no longer taking this med, I can indeed have a life back. Everything seems to be coming together in that my favorite time of year is here and my chronic migraines are greatly under control. I am incredibly thankful to my physicians who realized that perhaps the headaches were a side effect from a medicine that I was taking. I know that my cardiovascular systems as well as my organs are in excellent shape as I take care to eat carefully and always exercise. I hope that each and every one of you have an excellent start to the summer and remember that this time is about family and love.
