According to researchers from John Hopkins Medicine, the third leading cause of death in the United States is medical error, which includes the misprescribing of medication. Fortunately, many of the medications doctors prescribe can be avoided with a whole array of lifestyle changes.
In fact, cardiologists are now prescribing meditation for heart disease because there are so many studies out there that show that meditation can lower both blood pressure and heart rate as well as most meds. Exercise can help with depression, probiotics can help digestive problems, and eating less sugar and more vegetables can drastically reduce the need for insulin.
This is not longer just conjecture – there’s hard science to back these strategies up. Let’s take back our health and live better lives. Let’s stop relying on doctors to undo the damage we do to ourselves by not taking good care of the precious selves we are.
There is a wonderful resource in most US towns - the community center :) Consider checking your local community center out for exercise, nutrition support, and social engagement!
