Sickness, Drugs, and Prevention

The Human body is a well designed machine, powered by food, fitness, and spiritual enhancements. Prescribed Drugs and over the counter drugs were designed to help with illness, but as time progresses there is more and more information that holds the grim truth about these medications. Many are addictive, leading to death. Many disrupt the natural flow of the systems in the body, and many are not effective at all, only to make viral strains increasingly strong. 

The body has a natural ability to fight off infections, however; I must admit there may be times when the body can use a little push or help to heal itself. Diet, Exercise, and Natural methods are the best treatment for healing and should be the first method of use, but its not...

 Most people want fast relief from every ailment that comes about. Most people seem to overlook the long list negative side effects that many drugs and unhealthy foods have on the body. They also over look the fact most illnesses will leave on it's own with simple rest and a good diet,  the body will expels the sickness and the battle is won. 

However, when taking meds, the digestive system is probably the most affected system since it is used constantly to flush, break down, and expel structures of foods and drugs as it enters in to the body. Today many people have gastrointestinal issues due to continuous medications and exposure to chemicals on and within their foods.

Let's try to take preventative measures to ward off sickness. Prevention is the best prescription you can receive.
  • We should try to Keep our Mentalities in Check by Spiritually checking in with our Lord more, after all He is the Boss, and nothing is more deserving of being worshiped except our Lord and none of us is without flaws.
  • Eat to live by making sure that the foods that we are supplying our machines/ bodies with is  proper, clean fuel; Never over fueling your tank. Always flush your system with plenty of water. With these, you will notice a difference in many things like, your skin, your energy, and your weight.
  • Exercise at least 4 times a week for 30 min to 1 hour a day. A brisk walk is sufficient, for many who are not able to walk; seated aerobics, water aerobics, and physical therapy can be a wonderful help. 

"We Must Continue to Striving for a greater quality of health, No matter what affliction is effecting us at the moment. Remembering our Lord is the controller over all and with Him, nothing is untouchable or impossible."

Take Care and (As-Salaamu-Alakium ) Peace Be Upon You.
