You are responsible for everything in your life, the beginning.
Some years ago, I read a great book by Robert Dilts (Changing Beliefs with NLP), it helped change my life. Then I became interested in quantum physics and what is possible and I have been studying beliefs and how to change them so that they empower instead of dis-empower (I got some real knowledge). Absolutes in the Cosmos are very, very rare and the power of thought and belief is one of those absolutes. So -- you are as healthy as you BELIEVE and THINK you can be, with very few exceptions. And/so, your health is your responsibility. Real knowledge profoundly effects your thoughts and beliefs, so if you want to improve your health or if you want to be healthy, get some real knowledge and use it.
One great way to start to change your beliefs is to is to experience some success. Know that alternative health care works on the cause, medical care works on the symptom. To start experiencing some success and to gain some real knowledge check out The Living Wellness. Bob Brown
