Staying healthy is your responsibility. According to doctors Donald M. Vickery and James F. Fries in their Book, “Take Care of Yourself: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Medical Self-Care”, “You can do much more than any doctor to maintain your health and well-being by getting into the habit of health.” Getting into the habit of health requires a good health plan. A good health plan “can prevent many nagging nonfatal health problems such as hernias, back pain, varicose veins, and osteoporosis”. When you develop the habit of health, “you can reduce the amount of illness you will have in your life, and you will feel much better and have more energy. Good health is its own reward.
Starting a good health plan in order to develop the habit of health requires seven (7) key ingredients. These include:
- Not smoking
- Alcohol moderation
- Weight control
- Avoiding injury through common sense
- Professional prevention practices
In fact, you may not need some of the ingredients to form part of your health plan. However, a good knowledge of these ingredients will help you to plan well thus developing a great habit of health.
I will provide you with brief information on each of the seven (7) key ingredients in my subsequent posts. However, I would like to encourage you to get a copy of “Take Care of Yourself: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Medical Self-Care” written by doctors Donald M. Vickery and James F. Fries. It contains basically all health tips you need in order to take great care of yourself and family. Add it to you First Aid kit and library. The knowledge in “Take Care of Yourself: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Medical Self-Care” will reduce your health bills drastically.
