Photography and the health of a Photographer
When you buy a supplement from a drug or grocery store what do you know about
the quality of the supplement or the organization that produced the supplement?
Photography is both a creative and a physical process. If you want to take professional-looking pictures,
you need to be in decent physical condition. If you want to develope your creativity, you also have to be in
decent physical condition. Your brain which is an important part of your creative process needs the right nutrients
to feed itself and defend itself against your body and external factors in the photographer's environment.
I'm sure many photographers have different opinions about the Afordable Care Act also known as Obamacare. To me,
the most important part of this law is the emphasis on preventive care and quality care(has the doctor solved your
problem) over quantity(how many useless tests and office visits have you been subjected to)
However important the health care system is to your overall health; you are still the most important player in
your health. My belief is that from the moment, you are born to the moment you die your body is envolved in a civil
war that is happening thousands of times every second. I also believe the earliest point you
pick the right side in this war the longer you will live.
I am a member and affiliate of the "Life Extension Foundation." Yearly I spend over $1000 toward products that this organization
provides. I do this because I believe my good health is due in large part from reading the literature that this
organization provides and using their products. I also try to cut down on saturated and trans-fats, all forms of
sugar and try to cut down on the time that I sit down. In December of 2012 I weighed over 190 pounds and
couldn't stop gaining weight. At 5.5' that is way overweight. Losing weight is more than doing one simple
thing(you need to watch the below video on weight) but using LEF products for weight loss and maintenance was a
major factor in losing weight to 170 pounds. Losing weight at my age is harder because most people my age do not
have rigourous excercise routines. Today(3/1/14) my weight hovers around 171 pounds. Eventually I will lose
another 10 pounds, but that would involve doing more exercise or sticking a 2 beer limit. I have
decent health for a man of 70 years and I attribute most of my good health as a result of my membership in
|| At 70, I believe I am in decent shape. I have bought into what they are
saying at LEF, and I attribute my mental and physical shape to using their products. Do I do all
the things I should be doing to have perfect health? Of course not, for one thing I enjoy having
several beers at my favorite watering holes during the weekend. Because I have a distance to drive
home, I never get too drunk, but I always exceed the two beer limits. In my defense, I usually
drink beers that have the least amount of alcohol in each bottle.
I heartily suggest you check on the above link and investigate this organization to see
if there are some answers to your own health problems. If you are a Photographer in bad health, it is hard to be
creative. Like the other products on my website, most of which I have purchased myself - I believe in what the
'Life Extension Foundation' has to offer. If you feel that you need to go beyond what you hear on a
five-minute TV segment that only presents one point of view and what your doctor tells you in your
five-minute visit than you need to click on the above links. Doing so may be the smartest thing you have
