Wellness

Wellness is something everyone wants.  But what is this ‘Wellness thing’ and how do we achieve it?

Are drugs the answer to wellness?

The idea that Drugs=Health has been supported whole heartedly by the medical associations of both Canada and the U.S. to the point that free thinking by physicians is thought of as heresy against the medical profession. The public is taught to improve their health by taking a ‘natural’ remedy that stops their nose from running or laxative to keep them regular. This is insane. We are searching for a cure for symptoms instead of dealing with the fact they are present in the first place. Many don’t realize that Health is more than the absence of symptoms or period between illnesses. Just because you feel OK does not imply your body is working any better or that you’re healthy.  It means you have no symptoms. As a population, we need to start thinking in terms of creating Health and Wellness instead of treating illness.
