Welcome back friends, to Dr. Brainerd’s B.R.E.A.T.H.S. Health Saturday’s edition of my blog. For the month of April, I will be discussing some self-health tips I have learned from personal experience, books, and medical professional advice I have received. On April 1st, I started a discussion on how mental health is no joke. The second week, I discussed what the health is wrong with me including my invisible genetic and autoimmune disabilities. Last week, I was discussing what the health is right with me to shed light on the positive aspects of my health journey. This final week in honor of Earth Day, I am sharing the correlation between our health and the Earth’s health.
Our Health is Similar
At the time of writing this blog, our planet, Earth, has been around for over 4.5 billion years, while humanoids have been around a few million, and modern humans a couple hundred-thousand years. It’s safe to say the Earth’s health has been around much longer than our own. However, they are not that different, and in fact they have several similarities. For example, both the earth and our body’s contain about 70% water, we both have a layer of protective skin that forms around our warmer insides, we both have cycles of night and day along with seasons, and we require fresh air, water, food, and sunshine to survive.
Conclusion on Earth Health vs Your Health
Well, we are made up of similar elements, it would make sense that the Earth’s health and your health are very much the same. While there are differences that make us unique, just like in each one of us, it’s the similarities that help us thrive as one whole. Thank you for reading and please take good care of both yourself and the Earth, today, and everyday.
Sending lots of love,
Dr. Jaime Brainerd, E.d.D.
