I, Dr. Rich Baez, stand for a world where your current state of health does NOT dictate your future.
Have you ever noticed yourself looking at someone on the street or maybe a family member who’s health is not where you think it should be? What did you find yourself saying? Was it an internal conversation, or did you start a conversation? I want to share a story with you, one that speaks to the heart of this issue.
My grandfather grew up in the mountains in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. Imagine walking out your front door and seeing mango trees, papayas, and other delectable fruits right at your fingertips. Homemade tortillas from locally grown corn, fresh meat from chickens, goats, and cows. This truly was a paradise. However what ended up happening over the course of his life was over indulging in sweets, fruits, tortiallas, and alcohol. It was this over indulgence that leaved him to develop Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
Why do I bring this up? Because I firmly believe that your current state of health does not dictate your future. You see, damage has been done to his body due the the lifestyle that he lived. However, that does not mean that he cannot get better if he works at it. You see, my father was raised the same way as his father, growing up eating amazing food, and overindulging throughout his life. Now, he is on the same track as his father, prediabetic, boarderline high blood pressure. But here’s the kicker, he does NOT have to end up like his dad, HE can make small changes in his life that will lead to a different outcome.
The same is true when it comes to other aspects of our health. Many people feel that that once they have acquired a diagnosis like Migraines, a sleep disorder, or Acid Refulx, that they are simply stuck. That they are going to have to take medications for these issues for the rest of their life, being told there is really nothing they can do about it. That they are going to have to go home and learn to live with it.
Worse yet are the folks who have some illness or are ‘going to get’ and illness because it runs in their family. Again, that simply is not true! Let me give you an example, alcoholism is a trait that runs in my family. Many men in my family are alcoholics, and have ben for years. But here is the kicker, although I am predisposed to be an alcoholic, if I never drink a beer in my life, that gene will not be triggered and I will not become an alcoholic, does that make sense? Every predisposition needs something to activate it, to turn it on. Imagine there is a door in the body that behind lies cancer. It remains locked until one day someone puts a key in the keyhole and releasing cancer into the body. What I am suggesting to you is two things. 1. If you never open the door, the cancer will not come out. 2. Our bodies are smart, and constantly trying to keep us healthy and alive. The ability of this system to work normally is determined by how healthy your nervous system is.
Listen to what I am saying, from a 30,000 foot view we are designed to walk a line throughout our life of health, happiness, and prosperity. Imagine, A——B A=where you currently are and B=health, happiness, and prosperity. That is our default setting, our blueprint for our life. Now, things happen to push us away from that path: STRESS, trauma (physical or emotional), and/or chemicals in our life. These things push us off that line. They leave us open to sickness, disease, unhappiness.
So, if we are meant for health and prosperity but currently find ourselves in a different state, there is a reason for it. It is not bad luck or fate, but rather something which more than likely can be corrected, given the right environment. Remember earlier when I said that the Nervous System is the most important thing in keeping us healthy? If you find yourself dealing with sickness, the first question you MUST ask yourself is, ‘when was the last time I had a test of my nervous system?’ If the answer is never, then that would be the first place to start.
Remember, your current state of health does NOT dictate your future. Just because you have been dealing with a diagnosis, no matter for how many years, there is HOPE to get better.
