How to Give Your Superb Health to Others

by Todd Dosenberry on · 12 comments

Is it possible to give your health to others?


The world continues to get sicker. This does not mean every individual is getting sick. Millions are thriving. Millions have it figured out. They know how to achieve superb health to the point where they can engage in any activity they want. They wake up full of energy, have a passion for life, digest food as well as possible and never get sick. They are well on their way to feeling like a kid when they become 80 years old. Even 90. They show no signs of slowing down and simply love life.

Is this you? Do you want this to be you?

I'm not there yet but I am well on my way. I'm on a life long journey towards superb health. I'll never reach perfection because it does not exist. But, I'll strive for it while doing my absolute best to limit my stress.

In order to give your amazing, vibrant health to others you must first find it yourself. You must feel the magic and live it day by day. You must move on when you feel like you have fallen through at any given moment. You must never stop educating yourself. You must study yourself. To find out if X food is wrong or right for you, experiment. I say wheat is not meant for any human being. To find out if this is true for you, eliminate it for 30-60 days. Keep track of how you feel. Then re introduce and keep track of how you feel.

Realize that health is a life long journey. Seek to improve but be okay with where you are at any given moment.

When you show improvements in your health your family and friends will naturally begin to ask you questions. If you lose a bunch of weight then they will want to know how you did it if they need to lose weight themselves. Maybe you had acne but now have perfectly clear skin. Those who still have acne will want to have skin just like you.

So give it to them. Tell them how you did it when they ask. Remember that health is a life long journey. Just because it worked for you does not mean it will work for them. This is great! Encourage them to never stop. Tell them that they may need to fail a few times. Failing is good. When you fail, you can learn a lot. If you fail it shows that you at least gave an effort. If you never fail then you are not trying hard enough.

Don't push your lifestyle on others. That's not giving. That's theft. It's stealing their freedom.

I live primally. I do my best to avoid grains, sugars, industrial oils, legumes and conventional dairy. After doing this for 20 months, my family is finally starting to jump on board. I don't push it on them. They see my overall health improving and want to see the same in themselves. They ask me questions. They want to learn more.

I choose to live a healthy lifestyle. This has enabled me to give health to others. This may be the greatest gift in the world. The greatest Christmas present anyone could open.

Or maybe a hug, smile and the words "I love you" will do.

What are you giving to your family and friends this holiday season? Love? Health? Appreciation? Gifts?

How true, Todd. The greatest gift we can give others is our true presence. When I am being vibrant, hale and joyful I can inspire others to live vibrant, hale and joyful lives. When I truly feel worthy of all that is good and beautiful, I share this feeling and spread it around. We ccan help others to feel this way about themselves. Now that’s the spirit of true giving. What you give away, you get to keep.

Well said Rob! A smile is contagious. If you smile then the chances of others smiling increases. Same with laughing. Both are healthy actions. Both are incredibly easy to give. You must must do. You must love life. You must be healthy too so you can live a long, enjoyable life.

I love this. I am currently home with my boyfriends family for the holidays and they all think I am a little nuts for being healthy. I never try and press my health ideas on anyone but when they ask why I tell them my reasons. I also try and cook a few meals while I am in town where I know they are stealthy and that others will like regardless of their healthiness or not. It is always a struggle though when you are traveling to the Midwest where every meal comes with a meat and a side of meat. 🙂

Meat and a side of meat? What’s wrong with that? 😉 I’m messing with you. I eat meat but prefer grass-fed, sustainably raised animal products. I eat plenty of fruits and veggies with some nuts too. Oh, and I of course love my herbs and spices!

Hi Todd,

Your words are so true. I love this line, “That’s theft. It’s steal­ing their freedom.” I have never thought of it like that before, but you are so right. When we push our ideas on people, it is taking away their right to choose their own eating style. I am a basic healthy eater, not too extreme in any one direction, but I have cut back on eating wheat as well as red meat. Others may notice, but I try to just set an example, without a lot of discussion.

Exactly. We all must decide what is best for us. We are all on a lifelong journey. We are all continuously evolving. Our viewpoints to change as we experience new things and go on adventures. This is why pushing something onto someone else is stupid.

Hi Todd,
I think this is essential: “In order to give your amaz­ing, vibrant health to oth­ers you must first find it your­self. ”
In all of my roles in life, I used to serve others first; it took me a lifetime to learn to allow my inner well and external being to be full of optimal nutrients and movement on all levels so now all that I ingest is life enriching and all that I share is just as life enriching. It is a conscious choice, which requires awareness and lots of continued learning and growth..but is it is a fun and exciting choice because my life is truly as magical as I allow it to be. Which is what I reflect to and share with my children and those who share space with me throughout the day 🙂
I think the greatest gift we may give one another is the gift of presence.

I appreciate the most the power of the smile! When my kids blink and smile at me, I can do nothing else but to kiss and hug them and be in a better mood!

A smile is invaluable. It can literally change a life if you smile at them. It may shock them and give them hope. A smile never hurts.

I’ve been lucky enough not to get sick in the last couple of years, and I’m always advising my family members on how to avoid catching other people’s colds.


Greg December 30, 2011 at 4:22 pm

I always eat fresh veggies and healthy juices. I don’t push my lifestyle on anyone but if they ask why you are so healthy then I will tell them.
