I’m sure you are like me and have so many tasks on your “TO DO LIST” that there isn’t enough time in your day to get them all accomplished. For a moment, take a real good look at your LIST. Do you see something missing? Really, you can’t see it?
We are conditioned to change our behaviour when faced with certain situations. For example, when a sensor triggers in your car causing your vehicle engine light to come on, you most likely will take your car to your local and trusted service centre for attention. However, when our own sensor, our body, indicates some form of discomfort we tend to ignore it. Why, when it comes to us and our own individual health needs, do we become disconnected?
According to Stats Canada, the average number of days lost due to illness or disability in 2014 in the Province of Ontario was 7.7 (female) vs. 5.3 (male) days. As well, they released a report dated March 13, 2015 that identified that 3.8 million individuals or almost 14% of the Canadian population (15+ years old) appeared to be dealing with some form of long-term condition (impairment) or health problem that impacted their daily activities.[i]
It seems that women had a higher prevalence of disability at 15% versus men at 13%. The most common disabilities that appeared were related to pain (10%), flexibility (8%), and mobility (7%). What is quite astonishing in their findings is that three-quarters of persons dealing with disability are affected by more than one type. Further, the prevalence of disability increases with age and surprisingly the average age of onset is identified in the early 40’s.[ii]
Why is it though, that we are determined to neglect our health by ignoring the signs….OUR BODY. Not only does ignoring the signs impact YOU, but it can also have a major impact on your future, your quality of life, and you and your family’s financial sustainability.
I’m very passionate about the “presence of health”; meaning not only acknowledging the body sensors, but also acting on those indicators. Reflexology is a vehicle to assist the body in doing what it does best…”a complex conductor that rids any foreign antibodies and trying to maintain the body’s natural state of homeostasis (balance)”. Taking on a mindset of “prevention” is a key component towards maintaining and in my opinion, sustaining better health.
Benjamin Franklin once said. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Why not embrace and INVEST in “YOU”! Whatever your age, now is the time to invest in your health by regularly receiving Reflexology treatments and reaping the benefits of better health.
