I'm feeling particularly heartbroken and angry about our current "norm". The current systems in place set our society up to fail when it comes to physical and mental health. It makes me furious.
In light of yesterday’s events, I’m releasing this podcast episode early on the systems that make me angry. It’s a snapshot of the hypocrisy and vicious cycle of the systems in place that are making our country sick, overweight, and unhappy.
Ex: Our government is subsidizing the crops that make the food that severely impact physical and mental health. Yet healthcare is unaffordable for many.
Dietary and lifestyle factors are major contributors to preventable chronic diseases (and mental health), yet doctors aren’t educated on these in medical school nor do they have the time to ask about them or give recommendations beyond “eat healthier” or “try to lose some weight”.
Our healthcare system is so siloed and rushed that a pill is prescribed for everything instead of asking how all of the symptoms could be connected and WHY.
Everyone is stressed and our society has normalized numbing that with drinks at the end of the day or comfort food instead of actually talking about it.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Change can start today, but it has to start one person at a time. We can’t keep hoping the people who are supposed to be taking care of us will do the right thing.
We NEED to start being kind to ourselves so that we can have the energy and patience to be kind to each other. Our society and the misguided and confusing information around health makes that feel really hard even when you’re trying. Please listen to my podcast episode to understand why things feel hard and where to start.
