Sunday evening I enjoyed having dinner with a couple who have been taking care of their health for over 80 years. The gentleman is a retired priest from the Greek Orthodox Church, he is tall, trim and fit, has a positive attitude about life and is able to converse on a variety of interests. He lives in the city and walks on a regular basis. Before appetizers were served he pulled a tin out of his pocket and placed it beside his plate. It contained a handful of supplements that his wife orders from a maker in Wisconsin. This particular brand was introduced to them thru their doctor. The priest began taking the supplements one by one with his meal and was finished by the time coffee was served. He ate a modest amount, vegetarian selections from the menu and did not have dessert. He is enjoying optimal health, no chronic diseases and is not under a physicians treatment for anything. This is a great example of wellness that has been developed through lifestyle. Great life example for our next topic. Over the next month I will be reviewing Dr. Duke Johnson’s book, Optimal Health. Through painstaking research and review he has developed eight pillars supporting a healthy lifestyle that will help you to live long and well. Let’s explore his book together over the month of May. All comments and questions are welcome.
