I hate the whole idea of depending too much on meds. Excessive medication killed my Mom and certainly subtracted a few years from my Dad's life as well. I know that some meds are necessary. I take Benicar to control my blood pressure. I take Pravistatin to control my cholesterol. I also eat more sensibly than I used to. As much as I love bacon, it is now a rare treat. Most importantly, even on days when I'd like to sleep in an extra hour or two, I get up and walk two rambunctious Dalmatians five miles a day. I don't work out. I don't go to a gym. I just make sure to walk the dogs every day - rain or shine. You really couldn't ask for a better exercise routine - especially when there are squirrels on the trail.
