A couple months ago, I asked my email subscribers and social media followers to answer a single question: What’s your biggest health concern?
I asked because I have a deep desire to solve health-related problems, and I was interested in knowing what people might be struggling with. I’m fascinated by the fact that almost all health concerns are reversible, and I love helping people heal. I wanted to know how I could help.
I’m not exactly sure what I expected, but I was surprisingly overwhelmed by the responses. It made me realize that people are worried.
Far and away, the response of “weight” was the frontrunner; a whopping 30% of respondents were concerned about their weight. (As someone who struggled with weight control for much of her life, I could relate.) Yet the variety of all the other responses took me by surprise: their depth, the fear revealed, and the honesty conveyed.
In short, people feel vulnerable about their well-being.
Here are the responses, organized into general categories (because many people use different words to say the same thing), but in no particular order:
- Living a long, active life
- Making good food choices
- Heart health
- Autoimmune disease
- Mental health
- Blood pressure
- Joint pain
- Toxic air particles
- Supplement quality
- Sugar cravings
- Social drinking
- Managing health without drugs
- Paying for healthcare services
Whoa! People are worried.
Good News: Most Compromised Health is Reversible
You might be one of those people who’s worried. You might think that your well-being is the result of a random roll of the dice where some people are winners and some people are losers.
I want to encourage you to think about health in a new way. First, consider that almost every concern on that list is addressable.
Second, any of us who experience symptoms of any kind (such as high blood pressure, sugar cravings, joint pain, acne, etc.) or have been diagnosed with a disease (including bipolar, diabetes, hypothyroid, dementia, cancer, and more) are united under the same umbrella: cellular malfunction. All health is rooted at the cellular level. In other words: something isn’t working right, somewhere in the body, somewhere in some cells. In essence, we all have the same cellular disease, even if the malfunctioning cells are located in different places in the body.
But here’s the cool thing: poor cellular health is reversible, food can be medicine, and you have all the power in the world to heal.
All it takes is education, a willingness to change what you eat, and some time.
