When you go to the doctor and they take your blood pressure or tell you your cholesterol and other ‘numbers’ from a lab report, do you now what they mean?
When you ask, how’s my blood pressure?, and they say 'it’s good' or, 'it’s ok' or, 'it’s a little high', do you ask-- how good? how ok? how high? And do you understand that number. Do you know what the RPM and MPH and MPG mean? Sure, because driving is an everyday thing. (Living in your body is an everyday thing too!)
The human body is our most valuable physical possession in the world. So when you get a tune up-- speak up-- and ask what the numbers mean, what they should be and what you can do to make them better. And if you feel rushed, ask until you understand the answer.
Most of the time a healthy diet (premium fuel) and regular exercise (open highway cruising) is the perfect medicine.
I love car analogies. Next up: Oil changes and bowel habits. Stay tuned.
