I have only lived through and can clearly recall a handful of elections. But with the state of our country, this election seems different. Somehow it seems to carry much more weight than ever before. But no matter the outcome, the next 4 years are going to be VERY important for us personally and as a country. I don’t care what your political stance is or who you voted for; there are two things that are imperative that you take into account in the following years.
Number 1: Your Health
There are few things that you have complete control over in this life but your health is one of them! Even if you’ve been diagnosed with an “irreversible” disease you can improve your health! We have a patient with Type I diabetes. Many in her situation would write themselves off and make excuses but she took control of her health and cut the amount of insulin she needs in HALF simply by making better choices! So choose health in your life because not only do you have control over it, it is one of the most valuable things you possess! Your whole world comes to a halt if you lose your health. How much money you make doesn’t matter (Steve Jobs couldn’t pay to get his health back). Politics doesn’t matter. Where your kids go to school doesn’t matter. Nothing matters when you lose your health. You are forced to make hard decisions and sacrifices when you lose your health! So protect it as if your life depends on it!!
Number 2: Health Freedom
If your health is one of your most precious possessions, then the right to choose how you manage it must be fought for. It is foolish to think that as humans we all have the exact same needs. We are all very different inside and out. There are too many factors in a person’s life to think that we can treat everyone in the exact same way. That being the case, every individual should have the right to choose what gets put into and done to their body. Also, we must have ALL information about any drug, injection, or procedure made easily available to us, with every side effect clearly stated without bias. And should you choose to decline, there should be zero negative repercussions!
This seems so logical! It’s your body, your health. You should be able to choose how to treat it. That’s called “informed consent.” But informed consent goes out the window when the government and controlling bodies “tell” us (soon to force us) how to manage our health. Especially when your doctor is allowed to discontinue you from his care if you don’t choose what he asks of you. Or if you don’t comply you can be fined, arrested, or even put on a list to be monitored. That is a very slippery slope!
So however you vote, no matter what the outcome of the election, take ownership of your health and stand up for health freedom!
