Health Holidays

There are many Health Holidays and Observances, or Health Awareness Days / Months / Weeks to bring attention and awareness to different health issues and diseases throughout the year.  This page, will summarize them by month, and then ultimately, we will have a devoted page, or more for each of the different Health Holidays and Observances.

I think that most families these days, have some issues going on.  In our family, we have allergies, chemical sensitivity issues, one person is currently fighting cancer, two people are diagnosed with the auto-immune disease Lupus, one has an unexplained stomach issue that has stumped multiple doctors, we have a wonderful autistic young man in the family, we have thin people, and those like myself that could stand to lose a few pounds.  Our Dad has had skin cancer on his nose several times, and Our Mom has COPD and her heart gets out of rhythm periodically. The doctors have had to stop her heart once, and then restart it.  At some point or another, Stress has reared it's ugly head for most of us in our family, causing High Blood Pressure to be an issue for some. Some of us have dealt with school bullies and work place bullies.

It is hard to find a family that is not affected by some type of health issues. The hardest for me to see is when children are involved. All of these Health Awareness Days are great to learn more, educate others, and find moral support and tips that can help for the issues you might be dealing with. If you have time or money to help, there are lots of great Non Profit Organizations out there!

Health Awareness Days

I'm of the conviction these days, and maybe because I help my sister Kerry, with her Healthy Diet Habits website, that Nutrition has a lot to do with our Health these days. If you are overweight, or obese, please check out the great information that Kerry has put together about Health Weight Problems on her Healthy Diet Habits website.

Personally, because I'm chemical sensitive, thanks to Formaldehyde Poisoning exposure at my former workplace, I try and buy everything I can Organic. My Dad pushes me to get a Flu Shot every year, and this last year, I told him that due to Formaldehyde being an ingredient in the Flu Shot, that I can't ever get one.

I'm mostly Vegetarian, and don't eat meat or chicken, although I do eat fish or seafood a couple times a week.  I think that the Chemicals and Growth Hormones, and Genetically Modified Foods that are so prevalent these days, are behind a lot of the increase in Health issues these days, so the cleaner you can eat the better.

The medicines that we are given to deal with Health issues, often have so many side effects themselves, and many of them can be addictive. I try and avoid them when possible, and look for Natural, Holistic remedies and cures. 


Health Awareness Days

Be Thankful - Health Awareness Days/Weeks/Months

Below, listed by month are the Health Holidays and Observances, that we are aware of so far. There may a few duplicates or incorrect dates, there may be some that we have left off that we will add as we find them, and there are some that are similar, but have different Sponsor Organizations that started the Observances, that may have different approaches and info. As we delve into all the details, we will fix any issues.

Ultimately, there will be a devoted page done for each of the different Health Holidays and Observances.  As pages are completed, they will be linked up below, as well as in our Daily Holiday pages, our Holidays by Month pages, and our Holidays and Observances Alphabetical Listing (Page 1 is A Holidays - Each letter of the alphabet now has it's own page)
