Break the cycle! Take little steps day by day to regain and maintain health and wellness. Setbacks may happen, but the intensity may be shortened as activities have focussed on maximizing wellness and minimizing the body burden.
After many years of Living in Prevention, my children will occasionally get sick due to poor sleep, or too many treats at the grandparents! However, the duration and severity are lessened because our predominate lifestyle is one that takes an active approach to wellness.Usually all that is needed is a minor tweak or change to get back on track- and we manage this from home. Prior to this new lifestyle, we would be in emerg, walk-in-clinics or the doctor’s office several times a year. When the Pediatrician didn’t hear from us for two years, the office called and asked if we found a new MD. I told them "no, we don’t have reason to visit!" We now visit for the annual physical, in order for the children to remain on the caseload.

Under this system, the individual is bombarded by constant appointments, waitlists for services, diagnostic tests, specialist visits, negative emotions, feelings of powerlessness and defeat. Where is the time and energy to be proactive about health? It can be a vicious cycle, and individuals end up miserable, tired, depleted, and no further ahead of the game in terms of regaining their health. Life can feel like a circus or a very bad soap opera. While there may be exceptions, this is the reality for the majority.
This is where we want to be:
At the heart of Live in Prevention is the concept of reducing the body burden while simultaneously giving the body what it needs to fight the onslaught of daily assaults.
