Can You be your own Magic Pill

The magic pill is you.
Too many of us rely on prescriptions to fix our health problems. Instead look within.


Last week we talked about prescription drug use in our country, the big business behind it and the staggering statistics of how many people are on prescription drugs for one ailment or another. Prescription drug research has advanced tremendously in the past decades, and it has benefitted us tremendously, and saved or prolonged many lives. But it is also a double edged sword. Because we can take a pill to make our symptoms go away, seeking and addressing the reason behind the ailment can get pushed aside. Can’t sleep? Take a pill. Blood pressure up? Take another one. Stomach upset…yet another. It is too easy to pop a pill that relieves our symptoms rather than address the underlying issues causing the problem in the first place. *

Taking care of our problems from the core requires a great deal of commitment, effort, dietary changes and often counseling to help people look at what lifestyle changes need to be made. For many Americans, especially older Americans who haven’t followed good health practices throughout their lives, it can be very difficult to make changes. When we don’t take care of ourselves, neglect a healthy diet and exercise, we open ourselves up to developing a number of conditions that begin to snowball. Poor gut health and excess weight sets us up for metabolic syndrome, and all its related conditions: Diabetes, coronary problems, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. An unhealthy gut can lead to depression. It becomes a vicious cycle that is difficult to reverse.*

A doctor can feverishly try to stabilize and manage this multitude of conditions, but if the individual isn’t willing to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes, all the medicine in the world isn’t going to “fix” them. It just becomes a matter of managing the disease, masking symptoms and stabilizing the body’s metabolic levels. This is how so many people in our country get through each day, with a plethora of pills to address their multitude of health issues. But what about an alternative approach such as seeking the advice of a nutritionist and personal trainer and making serious changes for the long term. It means being willing to do the hard work and sticking to it. By losing weight, eating right, staying on probiotics to really address the gut, and exercising daily, many of the prescriptions we rely on can be eliminated. *

Just as a prescription is not always the magic pill, you can’t think that probiotics alone are going to fix all your problems overnight either. It is absolutely essential to be on probiotics, there is no doubt about it. But taking BODY BIOTICS™ Bio-Identical SBO Probiotics Consortia™ is one essential part of whole body health. If you are not willing to change your diet and exercise habits, simply taking probiotics will not be nearly as helpful or effective. People often wonder… why am I not getting better faster? The question is: are you doing your part in a well rounded health program? *

Our guts, as a whole, have been severely compromised over the years as we have been subjected and taught that antibiotics were the answer every time we got sick, that processed foods’ convenience outweighed their lack of nutritional value. For years, we were unaware that antibiotics and growth hormones were being added to our meat supply and that companies were genetically modifying foods without public awareness.  All of these things have snuck up on us and severely compromised the diversity of our microbiota and the health of our guts. *

Taking a proactive approach to our health is best. Instead of accepting that medications will fix our  conditions, perhaps we could change our behavior instead. Taking care of the one body we have every day will mean a healthier body throughout our lives with less dependence on medications. Create a more diverse microbiome with daily intake of a natural, bio-identical probiotic such as BODY BIOTICS™ Bio-identical SBO Probiotics Consortia™ with prebiotics. There is no magic pill…not a prescription, a supplement or magic food. But there is a combination of things you can do overtime to be the healthiest person you can be. And that’s where the magic happens! *

Healthiest wishes,
