    Status Quo Sucks....

    Besides the obvious unhealthy lifestyle and lifestyle-caused diseases crises in this country - more exacerbated in the the South Coast MA region - which are both beyond epidemic levels, the more shocking issue is the absolute apathy and caustically dismissive attitudes toward this from the majority of people.

     

    The popular culture and media only perpetuate the problem by persistently refusing to focus on it, most likely out of fear of losing readers/viewers/listeners/advertisers, and continue to give constant attention to the restaurant/pub “eat, drink and be merry” culture. Apparently, as long as this singular aspect of the economy is healthy, that is all that matters; apparently this is the primary sector of the economy.

     

    It doesn't appear that there is any desire to put an end to the widespread apathy toward healthy living or the adulation of the restaurant/entertainment sector of the economy. There is an entrenched acceptance of a sloth and gluttony lifestyle, a sedentary “eat, drink and be merry” lifestyle that has little regard for healthy living, as an accepted and acceptable lifestyle. The poor health of the majority of people and the high lifestyle-caused disease rates from unhealthy living don't matter, and, are of lowest priority and concern for both the population and the media. The highest priority and value is placed on all venues of entertainment, eating out, take out food, drinking, smoking (tobacco, marijuana) the newest style, image, prestige and all things sports, while remaining completely apathetic about everything concerning health outside of basic symptom relief. There seems to be an outright addiction to living an unhealthy lifestyle. This is status quo.

     

    This apathy and disdain toward a healthy lifestyle usually lasts until late middle age, the time when many of the status quo lifestylers get struck down by lifestyle caused diseases and find themselves in health crises, plural. Diseases that affect mobility, motion, and health status in myriads of negative ways, debilitating them on some if not multiple levels for the rest of their lives. But even then, many don't care. Most just get a bunch of drugs to "normalize" the ailments and go right back to the same unhealthy lifestyles. That is until this covid crisis hit and people with lifestyle-caused diseases became the sector of the population with one of the highest infection and death rates. Now, there is rue about the decades of leading an unhealthy lifestyle and apathy about it...decades of high stakes gambling with health...and life. Only now is this status quo majority in a complete panic for their very lives. What a head-shaker.

    "You are in a body that has a natural tendency toward health and can overcome almost anything if you allow it to perform its own magic."

    - Dr. Wayne Dyer

     

     

    Rise above the status quo thinking and lifestyle, avoid traditional health care as much as possible and appropriate, utilize more natural means of proactive preventive care to preserve and enhance health and well-being, thrive in optimum quality and quantity of life.
