Doctor’s Notes: Summer 2022 – Resilience

Resilience –  the capability to adjust to misfortune or change

All of us have had the shared experience of the last two and one half years. Change brought on by a once in a multi-generational timespan, biological event, that has occurred intermittently for millennia. Together we have weathered that adversity with the support of the development of therapies, cures and preventive practices to help us survive. We have shown resilience.

Much is spoken of wellness. Most choose it over illness. We have all heard of the Mind-Body connection, the concept that how we think can beneficially, or adversely, affect our general health. Healing encompasses both.

Oft times we employ seemingly contradictory terms to describe things and concepts. Some examples are “driving on a parkway”; or say, “parking in a driveway”. Another example is the term “fruits and vegetables”. It is similar, in that, a healthy diet suggests 3-4 times more servings of vegetables than fruits. A plant based diet should be just that, and does not exclude animal products, as does the choice of a vegan or vegetarian diet.

The Mind-Body connection can thusly be considered in a similar fashion. The mind resides in the organ, the brain, one of the organ systems of the body. The circulatory, respiratory, digestive and excretory systems of the body join the central and peripheral nervous system in the health of our body. We live in our town and community, but we basically live solely… in our body.
