Humbly and respectfully, in the ages-old traditions that I teach, coach (at my wellness center, at workshops, and in my book), and endeavor to follow, NOT taking responsibility for one’s own health/well-being is the real disease in most cases, i.e.: TRUE disease is in NOT realizing a truly healthful dietary WAY OF LIFE; TRUE disease is in not embracing an adequate/truly healthful aerobic exercise/mobility WAY OF LIFE; TRUE disease is in not enjoying a truly healthful stress/anxiety-controlling WAY OF LIFE (which is inclusive of refined meditation and all-of-the-time diaphragmatic breathing).
Most of the time, what we conventionally perceive to be chronic disease is the RESULT/symptom of the REAL disease. This is not to say that health problems/lightning bolts cannot still strike…albeit, MUCH less so. This is a secondary thesis of the Bright Beautiful School of Thought/Ming Chia, whose (abbreviated) primary thesis is True Health through True Responsibility. In full, this thesis sets forth that the world would be a much better and different place as more and more people learn to take True Responsibility for their own health and well-being. — Dr. Glen Hepker
