Just What the Doctor Ordered—Trending Health with Truth

  
  
  
crazy doctor

I'm a natural skeptic when it comes to health trends as I'm bombarded with the latest silver bullet or one ingredient that suddenly seems to pop up everywhere (i.e. kale). My innate curiosity pulls me away from the pretty packaging and bold promises, as I take a firm ‘prove it’ stance. It's not the berries or leaves I'm concerned with, but the processing that renders products of nature unrecongizable and the extensive hype over watered down, pricey goods that probably won't do whatever it is they claim to. I do my homework before settling into the best form of healthy consumables in question, generally erring on the side of the simpler the better.

And I'm definitely not alone—in a recent blog post by Reddit CEO Yishan Wong, it was reported that the site brough in 3.8 billion page views and 46 million unique visitors last month alone.

Plenty of people are hesistant to take the plunge into the doctor's office. Perhaps you're concerned the medical services you need aren't covered under your insurance policy.

After being in Greece for over a week, I have come to the conclusion that the majority of Greek people are fit. Many islands are without roads for cars to drive on and there are mazes of pathways and steep, narrow staircases that must be climbed to get to everyday places. Each island church seems to rest on top of a steep hill, only accessible by foot or donkey. Also, I have learned the Mediterranean diet is rich in nutrients and protects against many disease, including chronic heart disease. The combination of healthy eating habits and regular exercise has clearly proven effective and is imitated by many throughout the world.
