Shocking Statistics

We are the sickest country in the world. Our life expectancy is decreasing. Our infant mortality rate is higher in America than it is in any other industrialized country. 1 out of 2 people have heart disease. 1 out of 3 people has cancer. These statistics should be eye-opening and awakening.

Sometimes Less is More

We have more doctors and medicine than any other country, yet we remain the sickest ones. If doctors and medication were the answer to all health issues, should we be the sickest country? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again while expecting different results. Our healthcare system has continued to use a system labeled “health” care, yet the system focuses more on disease than true health. With an endless amount of medications and treatments, we should become healthier and lessen the amount of healthcare needed. However, as time passes it proves over and over again that this is not the case.

A New Foundation

If you had no idea the true meaning of health, you would at least understand some necessities for a healthy lifestyle such as clean water, clean oxygen, clean food, clean minerals, and more. You can understand the importance of rest to regenerate your health. You also know that movement is important, beyond working out, for a healthy body. More than just the physical aspects, a healthy lifestyle requires a mindset shift. The core values of Queen City Health Center layout a true foundation for health. If you focus on these five things, you will begin to advocate a healthy life for yourself and see drastic changes outside of following the protocols of our current health care system.

The Common Mistake

There is an overwhelming list of medications almost every family keeps stocked in their houses such as Aleve, Ibuprofen, Pepto-Bismol, Tylenol, Imodium, etc. This stock of medication is commonly labeled as the medicine cabinet.

The issue with a medicine cabinet being normality is when people miss the true cost of relying on these substances to fix their issues. The reality is that medications, such as the ones previously listed, merely mask the issues at hand rather than dealing with the root cause.

Biblical Health

There is a biblical truth that your body was made to heal itself. Our bodies were not improperly made. In fact, our bodies were powerfully and wonderfully made. God did not mistakenly create our bodies. Every organ, system, and cell works together to create a healthy body.

An example of one of the powerful things our body does to heal itself is a fever. Many people are afraid of fevers, yet miss the concept of why our body creates one. When your internal temperature rises to 102 degrees it is able to kill bad bacteria and when it rises to 104 it is able to kill off a virus. Fevers are a good thing. A lot of people’s instinct for fevers is to tamper it down with medications due to fear.

Changing the Norms

Granted, there are situations when your symptoms become an emergency. If you are vomiting excessively, for example, you would need to replenish your body with electrolytes and fluids. A solution for this would be to receive an IV of fluids and electrolytes to support your body’s system to heal itself.

Making the medicine cabinet an old story or term we quickly forget can begin with us. Just because things have been accepted in the past does not mean to continue it in your own household. There are many natural ways to support your body as well as tons of research and information provided for you to understand why a medicine cabinet is unnecessary for minor health issues. It is time to start shifting your thinking so that you can ultimately shift your health.
