The following is an excerpt from 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health by David Riklan and Dr. Joseph Cilea:
We live in an age of contradiction. Never has such a wonderfully diverse wealth of information about health been so easily accessible. Never have we known more of the secrets of the human body. And yet, never have so many Americans been making so many bad decisions about their health.
Today, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, about two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese – 133.6 million people in all.
A new study completed by the National Cancer Institute indicates that 40.93% of men and women born today will be diagnosed with cancer at some time during their lifetime.
Someone dies of heart disease every 34 seconds.
One in six Americans is either pre-diabetic or diabetic.
Over ten million Americans are taking anti-depressants.
One in six Americans suffers from an anxiety disorder.
And incidence rates of conditions like childhood diabetes, sleep disorders, Alzheimer’s, anxiety and depression are spiraling upward with shocking speed.
Why are so many of us so unhealthy? . . . Health awareness is the first step in the path.
Hallelujah Acres’ mission is to empower you with information that will enable you to make informed and biblically sound choices.
If the mounting tide of disease is to be stopped, each individual must take responsibility for their health and make informed choices that will enable the innate self-healing God placed within each body to function as designed.
When this takes place, we can not only avoid the ravages of those diseases but most often reverse the disease state that is manifesting symptoms.
