Be Hale and Hearty
In olden days, people, although lived with little means, but their lives were full of happiness, health and harmony.
Now-a-days, in this little global village, there are myriad maladies and afflicting ailments. In present times, it seems like every person has become a captive of either diabetes or hyper tension.
Just google it and you’ll find shocking prevalence of global diabetes. It’s almost 463 million people, as per the 2019 estimates, who are suffering from diabetes.
What to say about diabetes that weakens a person more than old age. It is crippling malady that ruins one’s youth. Ah, a diabetic person, as if bereft of youth. In fact, diabetes, is a silent, creeping ailment that tires human physique and makes a person old too quickly.
What a mindlessness! With all greediness and temptations, we eat all sorts of junk foods, consume carbonated soft drinks, and instead of eating fresh fruits even kids become addicted to candies laced with saccharine or drinks tempered with sugar.
With no bridle to our appetites, we think nothing of abstinence in our eating styles. We rarely ponder upon what to eat and drink and what to avoid. It’s only when our sicknesses jolt our senses that we become too frantic and frugal in eating.
For a single disease, there’s no particular one treatment. When people become diabetic, besides taking pills and insulin shots, they try other alternatives, herbal remedies, sometimes in the form of concoctions, powders or multiple mixtures. What’s effective and what’s not. Who knows? Ugh…frankly, with too many medications, oftentimes, we make a mess of our little stomachs.
Well, when you take no proper food, then there’re possibilities of various deficiencies that may lead to health problems. Once you are ailing, you can’t eat all that you desire. And there’s no way to abandon the routine of taking medicines. Sometimes, before or after food, one has to take pills like dry nuts. This one for diabetes, that one for hyper tension, the other ones for heartburn or blood thinning. Yet, when medications work little, people relish to gulp some sort of herbal mixtures and pills or take a sip of cocktail home remedies.
When you’re hale and hearty, you should take care of yourself. We harm our bodies when we fill our stomachs, with no space for water or air. Gluttony is of no use, but it turns one’s body obese and unhealthy.
Body organs aren’t like vehicle spare parts. When something goes wrong, there’s no way of replacement. It’s either a recourse to respective medicines or therapies.
Strangely, some people live in phobias. Even when they fall sick, they fear to step into a clinic. On the contrary, either they rebuff their sufferings or try to treat themselves like self-styled doctors. Yes, when a disease turns life-threatening, then what’s worst is that one by one body organs becomes futile. And more than food, at a critical juncture, a person lives on medicines.
The more we become careless, the more we cause damage to our bodies. Perhaps, eating in moderation and living in contentment is also a best remedy. Even, in poverties, some people live longer. May be moderate eating or penury itself is an ailment.
