Living in a society of convenience, almost everything is so easily accessible in the 21st century, most of the time we simply just click a button. With a heavy demand on the health service, I fear people aren't working as hard on taking responsibility for their health as much as they may on material things in life.
If you log onto any news website there is a high chance that there will be a report/article about the health service, being unable to cope and desperately needing more funds. My personal feeling is we have the wrong idea on nutrition and opt for convenience when and where possible, mixed with endless hours of being sat down and less moving of the body a pattern of poor health begins, not only in the body but also the mind. The mind becomes unhealthy and lazy, energy levels deplete and it becomes a viscous cycle leading onto the break down of the immune system. Examples of convenience aren't hard to spot:
We drive 300 yards to the shop
Hundreds of millions of people rely on a pill for the answer, to fix aching joints, headaches, indigestion.
The problem in society is we are too heavily reliant on the system and less reliant on looking after our health.
Treats the cause not the symptom!
