Adopting a Proactive Approach to Good Health

Written by Rob Allport   March 30, 2009

A Presentation to the Rotary Club, Hillingdon

In the week before last we had the pleasure of being invited by the Rotary Club of Elthorne Hillingdon to address their local members on the enticing topic of preserving good health.

The presentation was entitled “Ten Tips to Avoid the Osteopath and Maintain Rude Health“: it aimed to take to task the conventional and somewhat resigned approach of many, where health is just how one is “all equal, touch wood”, and disease is the state in which one turns to the GP for pills.

The presentation emphasised that our body and its predominant state of health are a miraculous gift, and that it is worth investing in a few simple dietary, physical and lifestyle daily practices to maintain that enviable state of health.

Some of the thoughts caused a bit of a stir – the idea of daily hot and cold showers more of a shudder – but at the end of a reasonably long and lively question and answer session, the consensus seemed to be that the osteopath had left his audience with food for thought, and some practical health hints that some might go home with and implement the very next day.

Bridge to Health in Uxbridge regularly offers to share this type of presentation with corporate audiences, health spas, gyms, sheltered housing or residential homes. If you feel that your company or organisation might benefit from this type of workshop, please contact Mathieu on 01895 2000 50 at the clinic (click here for all contact details).
