Pondering on whether you are responsible for your health may at first sound strange. After all, the medical profession is quick to tell you you’re not, that it just happens or your genetics are responsible. That may (or may not) be their true understanding. But they certainly don’t know it all.

Of course, if people realise that they are indeed responsible for their health, it also means they are in a position to undo poor health and restore good health. Without the need for anyone to help them.

But that would impact big time on the profit of those who want to tell you you’re not responsible. That may be considered cynical to some, but look around and let the scales fall from your eyes.

Is The Cause of Disease Inside or Outside of You?

The medical people like to blame every aspect of poor health on something that is outside of you, trying to invade you. So they arm you with the anti-medications, to kill of the invaders. But this is sloppy thinking.

Every gardener knows, on some level, that the health of the soil is critical to the health of the plant. When a plant fails to flower or fruit, the professional advice always starts out by looking at the soil.

Translate that to a physical being and the same applies. The medical people should be looking at the health of the person in front of them. What are they eating? How are they living? Are they stressed? How is their relationship?

Since all this takes up a lot more time than the 6 – 10 minutes normally allowed in most medical consultations, it’s easier (and a lot more profitable) to prescribe a pill. Sadly, it keeps most people happy. “My doctor is looking after me.”


If your diet consists of a lot of fast or junk food, do you really think that will keep you healthy? Will it contribute to a healthy immune system?

If you live in cramped, noisy, unhealthy, damp, etc living conditions, do you consider that will contribute to a healthy immune system, one that will protect you against ailments?

If you are unhappy in your relationship, if it doesn’t contribute to your sense of well-being, do you feel that will ensure your health remains in peak condition?

The medical system is not about helping you help yourself. It’s about keeping you dependent on them as that’s where the profit lies. You are pacified with all sorts of, and highly unscientific, reasons.

How To Take Control of Your Health

Being responsible for your health means taking firm control of your life. This is a journey, so you are likely to slip up many times. That’s OK and perfectly normal. Just focus on being responsible and holding on to your control. As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Just get back up and keep trying.

One of the most influential areas which can quite rapidly boost your immune system, is diet. That can be a difficult area to change as old habits die hard. And conflicting information abounds. The medical system never considers diet and doesn’t train anyone in diet.

However, it is key to good health. One of the best websites to start your journey helps you to recognise what to avoid and what is healthy. However skeptical you are, you waste nothing by trying it for a month. Then check if you feel better at the end. That will tell you whether to continue or try something else.

Some form of exercise is important. Preferably one you enjoy. If it’s just something you feel you have to do, you’ll not stick to it. Having a dog, if you’re responsible, makes you get out in the fresh air to exercise them. You both win. And they can be delightful company.

Meditation is a wonderful way to help calm you and feel your inner wisdom, if that resonates with you.

Your type of health care matters. As already discussed, medicine makes you dependent on them. You need a form that tries to empower you as well as to heal you properly. One whose only mission is to improve your immune system. Good homeopathic treatment fits those scenarios to a T.

Take your power back and become responsible for your health. The problem is not outside of you. It’s inside. Don’t blame a virus or a bacteria. It’s the health of your immune system that matters. It’s the only way to regain your health.

      Thank you for this post. I definitely believe we are responsible for our health. We’ve been so dumbed down in our society by mainstream medical and health.


      I do wonder if the following has ever been discussed as another possible reason why many people aren’t taking healthy responsibility for themselves. It’s this… I have seen in my life and the lives of many others the subliminal desire to not be healthy so as to limit one’s experience in the human body whether due to trauma, depression, etc. In other words, many people may not want to live…period! I know it may sound crazy but I’ve seen it a lot and have experienced it. When I realized it, I had no idea how to shift it. Nothing has worked except sheer willpower to do the opposite, or die trying.

      That’s a really interesting idea! I think what’s behind it is the disconnection from the heart, which is vital to living happily. That connection empowers us, but isn’t in government or corporation interest as they want to control us, for their own agenda. Once we re-make that connection (we’re all born with it), enthusiasm returns. Without a doubt, good homeopathy treatment helps us in this often monumental task. Meditation is also good, but takes a bit longer.
