Take Charge of your Health!

I lost a lovely friend this week .. She was an interesting, funny, intelligent, big hearted clever lady who was always there to listen, whether you were just chatting or having a whinge (it made no difference to her) She was there for you.

I miss Avie already. When my own Mum died 4 years ago, Avril kinda took her place in my heart .. now there is just a big empty space.

Avril was a smoker .. had been since she was a teenager during the war. She thought, much like my Mum did, that although smoking was bad for them  “I know that” – they’d both admit, but because they hadn”t had any ill effects up to now they thought probably they weren’t going to  ..

Avril had a bad heart attack 4 years ago .. and seemed to have “recovered” .. she gave up smoking, for a while. But I think she started again once she thought the immediate danger was over.

She died from Cancer of the lungs which spread horrifyingly quickly. She had no chance to do anything once it was discovered. She was just 69, with many plans and hopes and dreams unfulfilled.

Mum had PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) which mainly affected her liver. Mum hardly ever drank water. “I get plenty of water with my tea” she’d say. Even when we came to Australia, she wouldnt change her ways, though I would often encourage her to do so.

Mums PKD got worse as she hit her late 60’s. She’d had several “attacks” down in Pemberton .. where she recovered by herself, drinking only lemon juice and.. you guessed it, water! As soon as she felt well enough, she’d be back onto her never ending cup of tea. She also continued to smoke.

She thought because she could still go for a decent walk and do a days work, that she was fine .. Why didnt she just continue on with the lemon juice and the water? Such a simple thing to incorporate into her daily life .. She could have also given up smoking then .. It would have made such a difference. She did eventually give up smoking (but too late) yet did nothing pro-active to try and improve her health.

Once, when she was in hospital she said to me “I should have listened to you Lizzy – and drank more water” .. it made me sad to hear her say it .. I should have been more forceful, more persuasive.

PKD is a genetic disease, however, we now know that genes can be switched off and on by certain things ..

Smoking detroys the body’s innate health and its ability to take care of itself, and would have most certainly contributed to her decline. Drinking more water would probably have given her a longer healthier life. We all know that Water is the “River of Life”

She also died with unfulfilled ambition, hopes and dreams.

Such a waste of two wonderful people ..

You are responsible for your Health .. not the Drs, or your mother, or your wives or partners .. You! .. and you will wear the consequences, good or bad!

At the very least, there are two things you can do –

Walk Daily

Drink Water, Lots of it! (Adding fresh lemon juice is great too!)

One thing you shouldnt do, Do Not Smoke!

What else can you do to improve your health?
