Instead of waiting for our government to solve your health care needs, take action and do everything you can to keep yourself and your loved ones well, and away from doctors and hospitals. So many in our society are already suffering from disease, but for those of you who are healthy. I urge you to do everything possible to keep yourselves that way. Eat sensibly, exercise and do those boring but important things that keep you out of harm’s way; like washing your hands during flu season, reducing stress through meditation and yoga, and taking a daily multivitamin. So much of your medical future is within your power to control.
