Taking Care of our Body

"The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease." (Thomas Edison)

Taking care of our bodies is vital to our health and well being. However, there are many risks that pose a hazard to our health. Our lifestyle and eating habits can stand in the way of a healthy body.

Over time, we have come to learn of the difficulties associated with high cholesterol, high sugar counts, vitamin deficiencies and many other dangers to our body.

Bad for the Body

The choices we make come back to leave an impression on our body and can increase our chances of disease and suffering. Toxins such as alcohol, drugs, tobacco and chemicals are all ingested knowingly and contribute to these negative effects on our bodies.
