Health - a gift of God or something to work for ?

"The body is a temple and it is our duty to keep it healthy", says the Yoga tradition, the Buddha and even the bible. How do you keep yourself healthy ? Is fitness important or just well enough functioning ? Do you follow special diets ? Is our health system really a health system or a 'sickness managing' system ? What makes us sick ? How can we prevent it ?                                                                   Our personal health is often a very private subject, maybe because we all know we could do better: eating more healthily, exercising more ...  etc. But information about what is actually helping to stay healthy is often conflicting and confusing. Let's shed some light on it. There are lots of questions that can be asked about Health. Maybe we'll find some answers.

    Hello, sorry, new puppy (collected yesterday) has turned the household upside down. Wouldn't be fair on neighbours nor dogs...nor cats, to leave him un-supervised just yet. He has turned my current dog into a crazy nut..or...MORE of a crazy nut and I spent the night on the couch with two dogs play-wrestling on top of me...all night. Have a wonderful time. See you next time maybe :) (keep healthy - get a dog!)

    There's an argument for doing the right thing, but there is also a luck of the draw aspect. I've known people who broke every rule and live comfortably into their 80s, and others who did everything right only to be struck down in their 40s.
    Looks like I'll be airborne to Sydney when you meet, family member in their 40s suffered heart attack - case in point.
