Health committed to Sustainability

BEING sustainable is the ability to be healthy and happy.

The word ‘sustainable’ comes from the Latin ‘sustentare’, which means defend, support, caring and preserving.

Being healthy in a sustainable way means knowing how to design our own path, and having respect for our body as the pillar of life.

Our life!

Although sustainability with or in health has been one of the concerns of all developed countries for about 10 to 15 years, little has been done so far to apply it at a global scale.

In 2015, the UN revealed its agenda up to 2030, focused on sustainability, to transform and protect people.

…”2015 will go down in history as the year when the 17 Sustainable Development goals were defined and established at a UN conference held in New York (USA) between 25 and 27 September.

This is the new agenda for action up to 2030, based on progress and lessons learned with the 8 Millennium Development Goals, between 2000 and 2015. This agenda is the result of the joint work carried out by governments and citizens from all over the world to create a new global model aiming at ending poverty, promoting prosperity and the wellbeing of all, and protecting and fighting against climate changes…”

It is up to each one of us to do our part and help develop our sustainability, that of the human being and of the planet.

I am counting on you! My task will be to bring you the seed of the word, so that the spirit of wisdom can germinate within you.

Medicine in the World and Epigenetics

Epigenetics is defined as the changes in the genome inherited by the future generations, but that do not change the DNA sequence.

All changes sustained by migrant populations are, in some way, changing their health pattern and their sustainability, because as they spread geographically, they are creating new patterns of imbalance in their physical and emotional structure.

The greatest change of all starts precisely with adapting to new eating habits, in addition to climate and social and humanitarian factors.

Scientific knowledge needs to be translated into information accessible to society.

Not everything is programmed in outr biotype, as actions such as eating, physical exercise, behaviour and geographical shift can influence the way genes organise themselves, changing our phenotype, which will also be transmitted to our descendents (…)

This new way of approaching HEALTH opens the way to a new reality: food and all preventive forms of protecting human balance can be the most powerful medicine to reduce the risk of diseases.

We cannot change our genes, but through new behaviours we can change how they are manifested and grow into the direction of collective wisdom.

Human Rights and Education

Several entities across the world are responsible for ‘looking after’ and ‘protecting’ the health of the people every year, and every country manages its own resources in this regard.

However, something has been forgotten: health care and the epigenetics of migrants.

There are hardly any examples and actions focused on preventive and scientific care of Epigenetics.

By pooling the wisdom of men and the planet’s resources we are combining the power of universe towards life.

The Health of People

This concept needs to start in primary schools and in each household.

Civil society must also be involved, sharing a vision in which everyone needs to transform knowledge into action in order to improve health in the cities and in all deprived areas of the planet.

Proper food intake is the necessary condition for having a developed genetic, cultural and socio-economic heritage.

Any action grounded in an attitude of understanding is, in itself, an exercise of acceptance of the cultural and health diversity of a people.

The dissemination of Sustainable Health cultural values is, therefore, essential for society to build a new development paradigm”…
