Traveling is good for your health. Traveling helps keep your health I will give you an example
I had a Father who had Huntington’s disease. He was told he would not stand up within the month and be a vegetable within the year. I said Dad we are going to prove them wrong. He started walking small steps, he was talking one word sentences, he started drying dishes to use his hands. He was a stick – arms, legs, stomach. Six months later he ask to go to London England. Doctors said your crazy. How is he going to get around. He was on an appetite medicine and his system was dried out from not drinking enough. I said Dad we are going to go to London to prove them wrong and we are not handicap we are doing to do what normal people do. We are walking, taking the bus, and the train. He knew what he wanted to see and do.
We went to London and each day he started walking a little straighter and a little faster each day. He got his appetite back, we bought bottle water and he drank the whole liter. When he got home 12 days later what took him 45 to 40 minutes to walk before he left took him 12 minutes when he got home. He was taken off his appetite medicine. His medicine for his shakes was cut in half. Being so active he lost his shakes. That vacation turned him completely around. He started doing physical work when he got home. For twelve more years went to London for a summer vacation and St Maartens for a winter vacation. They were six months apart. He knew he had to stay active to go on his next vacation. Those vacations gave him his health back the doctors said he repaired his brain
The last four years he was in a nursing home. In the beginning they would not allow me to take him out and he got depress. So they allowed me to take him out one Sunday. He lost his depression In 2002,2003,and 2004 they said he would die.
All three years he bounce back. Why I gave him a reason to live. Every Sunday we went to a museum, play. opera, ballet, or something. Each time I told him we did not have time to die I told him all the tickets we had and museums to go to. They were in shock how he bounce back. The third year he had aspirating pneumonia. They said I had done all I could that this time I could not bounce him back. He was down to 4 ounces of food and 4 ounces of food per sitting. He body was breaking down lack of protein had a choice either I tube feed him or he would choke or starve to death. I bought in finer food and said Dad we don’t have time to die. We have tickets to see plays, operas, ballets. We have to go back to finish where we left off in the museums we went to. So will you eat this food. We aspirate we stop and do better next time. In 7.5 weeks he went from 4 ounces of food to eating two full meals per sitting and from 4 ounces of pudding thick liquids to 32 ounces of pudding thick liquids per sitting. He bounce back and for six more months went out and enjoyed those tickets and participated doing things in museums.
So see what buying tickets and going places and vacations can do for you. Let me help you do it for your health.
