Herding Snails

February 14, 2011

When I take my early morning walk I always encounter huge snails on the golf cart path. They head off across the six-foot wide track oblivious to the fact that the workers in their carts and then the golfers will take direct aim at them just to hear the satisfying crunch of their beautiful brown striped shells.

Being the caring individual that I am, I often pick up these amazing creatures and put them back on the grass only to come back later to find them on the cart path crushed and oozing. I do the same with my patients, clients and blog readers, I try to put people on the right track with lots of commonsense wellness advice.

I can’t help thinking that snails on the cart track is an analogy to the people who want a quick fix to their problems. It’s much easier to glide along with modern medicine doctors telling you what drugs to take. Instead, I encourage people to take a different path embracing lifestyle and wellness solutions with my Future Health Now program.

As I wind up my two years of producing Future Health Now! I wonder what impact I’m having. The people who are in the program really do love it and comment on how it’s changed their lives. But how do I encourage people to do the program when they are so used to quick-fix drugs? How do I convince people that staying healthy is the best way to stay off drugs and keep out of hospitals?

The answer I’ve come to is that it’s not my job to convince anyone of anything. I loved every minute of the thousands of hours it took to create the program and that’s good enough for me. But I will continue offer the service to those who will be attracted to it and benefit from it.
