The reasons why people choose to join a health forum are very individual, and can vary to be sure, with no limitations. Some of us were always health conscious since childhood and have never lost an interest to continue with healthy eating, lifestyles, exercise and attitudes.

Some members, like myself, didn't always make all the right health choices and live an active life in our younger years, but have decided that our health is a valuable asset that we don't want to jeopardize, and we choose to improve our diet, supplement with the necessary nutrients, and exercise to help maintain a healthy and functional existence in our later years. Our interest is to prevent ailments that frequently come with aging, such as osteoporosis, dementia, vision problems, joint pain, type 2 diabetes, etc.

Others may join a health forum or group when they realize that they are developing a health issue that may require medical attention if they don't take some form of action independently. These issues might include obesity, pre-diabetes glucose levels, osteopenia or an increasing blood pressure level. They're seeking alternatives, whether through exercise, diet, supplementation, or all of the above to improve their quality of life before it's too late.

Some people suffer with medical conditions or diseases, and have received traditional medications and treatment from their physicians with limited relief from their symptoms and pain. They may be concerned, because they use prescriptions that have the potential of permanent or even deadly side-effects. They would prefer to address the cause, rather than just mask the symptoms through prescription medications. These folks are looking for ways to possibly decrease their medication dosages with the addition of more natural alternatives, or completely get off their drugs with positive results of natural medicines, along with their doctor's advice and guidance.

Regardless of which category we fall into, and perhaps yours hasn't even been mentioned above, I do notice one thing that many of us have in common. We, especially on this health forum, not only want to improve or maintain our own health, but we honestly want to help others get a handle on their health issues and concerns.

The beauty of this forum is that whether we're here to help ourselves, someone who's sickly that doesn't have the ability to research and understand for themselves, or we just want to share what we've learned and experienced with others, we're here, talking, listening, reading, and we are open-minded to all aspects of health and wellness. We're not blindly 'all for' or 'all against' alternative or traditional medicine, we weigh the pros and cons and consider everything's true worth and realistic value in our lives.
