My Outlook

I have observed a disturbing trend in health management.  The “magic pill/potion”.  You know what I mean … that exclusive pill or supplement that is suggestively marketed as a free pass to neglect working on a healthy lifestyle consisting of proper diet and exercise.

I’m not suggesting these products don’t have any benefit.  In fact, I’m quite certain that they do.  But I do believe that they are often relied on by consumers to act as a quick fix with little personal effort.  Having tried many of these products over the years I can (embarrassingly) admit that has been my experience.  Ideally, people should strive to put forth their best effort in regard to diet and exercise before introducing these products to their regime.  After all, why not try the natural solution first ?!

With every slip on my part in neglecting my healthy routine … my body is swift to react with increased stiffness, awkwardness, and pain.  I have Spastic Cerebral Palsy and had several childhood surgeries.  As an adult with Cerebral Palsy I am experiencing premature aging and I often have to work through significant pain in order to get through my routine.  But the pain and awkwardness in my mobility always shows great improvement rather quickly and I am constantly in awe of the power within the human mind and body to heal itself.
