Wellness doesn’t have to be pricey

In reference to the article “Medicine with meaning” in the Jan. 27 issue of Angelus, the author focuses a lot on more exotic (and expensive) forms of wellness rather than focusing on the simpler aspects of a person’s “whole lifestyle — their diet, work habits, stress, relationships, and physical activity,” as espoused by Dr. John W. Travis.

Our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit, and we cannot neglect that aspect of our overall health. As for diet, the Standard American Diet (SAD) is an affront to God. We need to do a better job eating healthy and exercising more. This is something we all can do.

— David Walter, Downey
