Mass media inundates us daily with the latest medical advice. But most of the medical research the advice is based on is incorrect. As the Atlantic reports, "Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science."
We can do vastly more for our overall health by aligning our lives with the spiritual equipoise of LOVE/SOUL. A LOVE-directed life is engaged in wellness-multiplying activities. For instance, we learn new ideas, discover new activities, nurture loving and mutually supportive relationships, participate in helping those in need, eat a healthy and balanced diet, and engage in consistent, moderate exercise. Activities like these evidence spiritual and physical wellness. We possess an underlying spiritual essence which emanates from LOVE/SOUL, and living a life of wellness makes this evident.
