Now, we can carry on about the big name corporations, the president being a socialist, the unions trying to get something for nothing, and while there is going to be a certain amount of truth in these things, the responsibility for change is still going to fall upon the individual. The horrific fact, you see, is that more than 1 out of every 10 Americans over the age of twelve is on prescription drugs for depressed mental health. This is not individual responsibility, this is band aids for cancer!
These prescription drugs are antidepressants like prozac, and there has been a direct link established between such drugs and suicide. How many people commit suicide because they train in something like Kenpo or Judo? Not too darned many.
So instead of ingesting tablets when they get depressed, Americans should be signing up for that tai chi class, or going to a self defense class, or sweating a little to learn a karate form. Instead of believing in the drug companies and following the orders of the family medical quack. Wouldn’t it be better to learn some ancient and diehard kung fu, get interested in a foreign culture, find out something out about your real self?
Heck, the family quack is trained in medicine, not mental disorders. And psychiatry isn’t really a science. And even if these facts weren’t so, a whopping 1 in 4 people are misdiagnosed with depression!
The real cure for this mental health quackery is actually pretty simple. The real cure has to do with creating a good lifestyle, eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and learning how to handle problems. These solutions are what a martial artist naturally learns during the course of his training, and this brings us to the magic three answers of real mental health.
Number one, avoid sweeteners,modified (genetically and otherwise) foods, and, in specific, all processed foods. Number two, do a cleanse of some sort to get rid of the toxins already in your body. Number three, exercise, use such things as Karate or Kung Fu or Taekwondo to get your body in top shape, and keep it in top shape.
Heck, the real point here is that drugs don’t really fix anything, and the real wounds fester, actually causing the individual’s condition to worsen. Martial Arts, however, cause good health, the human being wakes up and becomes more responsible, and becomes a wholistic and healthy soul. So I hope you understand what I mean when I say that lack of martial arts is causing the decline of America!
