There has been a lot of press lately regarding National Awareness Months for Breast Cancer in October and now November is National Awareness Month for COPD, Diabetes, Alzheimer's, National Bone Marrow Cancer, Lung Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness. Every one of these causes and diseases deserve all of the attention and awareness that they can get. The messages are all about informing the public about these terrible diseases, fund raising and finding a cure. Unfortunately the message missing with most of this is the prevention aspect, there really is a need to get the American public to realize and understand many diseases are preventable and in many cases reversible with the proper nutrition, living a healthy lifestyle and limiting toxic environmental exposure.
When I speak with people about what they are doing to prevent having health problems in the future the most common answer is " I get physicals every year", or "what do you mean?", or "I wait until I get sick". The fact is the most of the chronic diseases that are plaguing the US are diet related. Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes are leading the way. While I fully support every effort to find a cure for every single disease, there is a great need for the education of prevention. Many people are the living the "I'll wait until I get sick" lifestyle. I see this everyday in my Health & Nutrition practice. When I first begin working with new clients there are a variety of health issues that they are having to deal with due to not being aware of the damage they were doing by eating and/or living a certain lifestyle. The good news is that when they make a commitment to change to a healthy sustainable lifestyle before they get sick, they experience better understanding through education on how to eat right, understanding nutrition and how their body performs to a much higher level when it is properly nourished and the importance of living a healthy and happy lifestyle. Many people fear change, but by making it fun and inclusive with your family and friends you will get the support you need to succeed!
There is really nothing more important than learning and making the commitment to your own health and make an investment in your own health. This needs to be done at the family level because large corporations, food manufacturers, or government is not going to be creating a National Month of Preventive Health Awareness. It must be done at home. It can be done through self education, Health Coaching, and research.
I am in committed to making National Preventive Health Maintenance Awareness an every month campaign.
