EarthFIT Medication… Fitness and Nutrition
I was put on meds at a young age, oblivious to the long term consequences. They could have potentially destroyed my life; in fact, they almost did. I am lucky that I didn’t become a statistic; rather, I woke up at one point and did what ever I needed to do to take my life back. I see so many people who are on meds nowadays struggling, and this is one of the many reasons I ended up in health and fitness industry: to help people wake up and take control of their lives, to help people get their physical and mental health back. People are waking up to the fact that these meds are dangerous and can have dire consequences. Many people who come in for a fitness assessment say things like, “I refuse to go on medication.”. They are searching for holistic approaches.
Rather than rushing to medication, most people can correct issues with diet, exercise and natural remedies that Mother Nature provides. I am positive that as a society, we do not have so many ailments to justify medicating over 70-80% of the population. For me, it was a choice to believe that there is something physically and mentally wrong with me so that I need medication to correct the issue OR to make the necessary changes so that my physical, nutritional, mental, and spiritual health were in harmony, allowing me to flourish.
We are perfect beings. We don’t give ourselves enough credit: we are powerful beyond our imagination, and we have infinite power to direct our lives as we see fit. If we don’t believe this, we can be easily persuaded to medicate unnecessarily, giving our responsibility and power over to big pharma. I will take my chances with diet, exercise and meditation over medication any day. I choose to take responsibility for my own health mentally and physically. How about you?
