I can’t think of a more true statement that fits our 21st century than what Mr. Coxe penned over 200 years ago. He’s not saying that prescription medications are not necessary at times. He’s merely reminding us that prescription drugs are reactive – designed to treat sickness after the body is in an unhealthy state.
On the other hand, making a decision to live a healthy lifestyle by eating right and exercising is PROactive and will keep us well. This will help prevent sickness, enhance wellness, youthfulness, and bolster the immune system. Who wouldn’t want to get strong, lose body fat, boost confidence and reduce the risk of injuries?
Keep in mind we will never find health in the form of a pill. However, getting proper sleep, adequate exercise, and eating a balance of proteins, fruits and veggies is the “healthy drug” that we need. Here’s to being well, living well, and staying well!
