QUOTE BOARD: “Increasingly, the health science community and public at large have come to understand that lifestyle habits, whether they be positive or negative, are profoundly important to health and quality of life.” “It is our daily lifestyle habits and practices that are harming our health and literally killing us.” “Until prescription of positive lifestyle practices become a central component of modern healthcare, we are unlikely to improve outcomes or control costs of health care.”

What You Need to Do: What everyone needs to do is learn what habitat and lifestyle choices result in the expression of health and implement those choices into their daily lives. Everyone also needs to learn what habitat and lifestyle choices result in the expression of sickness and avoid those choices whenever possible. The best approach is to choose some healthy lifestyle habits that you find easy and comfortable to implement and start with these. Eat some fresh, raw fruit or vegetables with every meal. Go for a walk, no matter how short, every day. Think of things you are grateful for before you get out of bed every morning and when you get into bed every night. Tell yourself the truth, that your genes are programmed to express the healthy, happy, fit, beautiful, honest, kind, generous, hard-working, tolerant human being you are – you just need to give those genes what they need to do their work!
