Hi I’m Avi.
One of the biggest realizations I stumbled upon in my college career was that doing what you are passionate about is highly rewarding. So much so that it may not feel like you are working much of the time because you have a purpose and a vision.
My life’s events have directed me to finding my own passion: health of the body, mind, and soul.
Initially my interests centered in on nutrition. The food you put into your body is important. But the environment you’re in is important too. The people you’re with is important. Your upbringing is important. Your life choices are important. Your sleep hygiene, exercise habits, and beliefs are important.
They are important to the health of your body, your mind, and your soul. There is an interconnectedness to the organ systems in our body, as well as our own internal health and external health, as well as our own health and the health of our community and society.
I am currently a naturopathic medical student for this reason. Holistic thinking is largely lacking from the way we care for patients today and the results are increasingly apparent.
In an age where consumers can voice their concerns and shop around more easily, medicine will be forced to adapt and it already is.
Stop being confused about health (sbcahealth) is inspired by this interconnectedness. Sbcah’s goal is to itself stop being confused by developing a broad awareness of how health is maintained in the body. I will share ideas about fitness, nutrition, mental health, supplements, and anything relevant and interesting to that discussion here.
