Nature or Medicine?

If you were told you could live until a ripe old age by living healthier OR you could take a pill everyday and achieve the same, which would you pick?

While America has taken steps to increase nutritional awareness over the past few years, the majority would still rather consume packaged, processed foods that are literally killing them and ingest chemicals to cure illnesses instead of make healthier choices.

So many ailments people suffer from: headaches, insomnia, hypertension, depression, obesity, etc… could be prevented through dietary and lifestyle changes.

Would you rather pop a pill  OR incorporate more fruits/vegetables into your diet and physical activity into your day? I know not ALL ailments can be cured by improving one’s lifestyle and I do find value in modern medicine, but I fear our thought process as a society is backwards.

Instead of “what can I take to feel better?” perhaps the question should be “what can I eat or what am I lacking in my diet that could make me feel better?”

  1. I love this post! As I have been ill this past year, without answers as to what is wrong, doctors keep trying to pass medicines to me to keep symptoms at bay until they find answers. I refused. I’m not about to fill myself with all these things; which in the end may end up doing me more harm than good. Needless to say, they don’t like it much. But if I can get through the day without…I’m not about to take things I don’t need. Good issue raised today. Thanks.

    1. I’m glad you appreciate the post and feel blessed to have your support! Thank you for sharing your struggle and I pray you’re able to find answers and peace soon! Keep sharing, thanks again!
