Why are people looking for a weight loss pill?
That leads to the next question…
What’s truly going on in people’s lives for them to search and purchase these pills?
If we were to explore all the answers, we’d be here for days. Yet, what I think people may be neglecting is the power of biochemical individuality which refers to the unique nutritional needs each person has, based on their genetics, lifestyle, and environment exposure to various stresses.
After speaking to a colleague of mine, one of the reasons I see it clearly now is that people are motivated to find a permanent solution, something that works, and it’s effective. Permanent Solution sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
The culture we live in is one when you’re sick, you take a pill. the ‘take this for that’ approach so we can get back to ‘normal’ is so freaking strong. We thrive to achieve, nail things down, not waste time, be productive, have more money, be successful, and so on. The sentence “I don’t have time” or “I am too busy” to exercise, cook healthy meals, sleep 7-8 hours, and take 5 minutes breaks between meetings to reset, and the list goes on is…part of most people’s lives.
Most people searching for a weight loss pill have tried numerous things…they are tired of looking too. Others want to put a stop right from start and pills are easier for now. Without any judgment whatsoever, some thought happening may be…
Had enough of feeling crappy. Had enough of not feeling good in their own skin. They are unhappy with the way you look and feel for quite some time. The weight is slowing you them down or preventing them from following your passion and dreams. Their mobility is already impaired. They fear they will not experience joy as they age. They fear diseases. They want to live longer. They don’t trust they can do this. There are important things to do; a pill is simple.
If you’re sick; you have a cold. The health nerds might drink tea, lots of water, take extra vitamins, stay away from inflammatory foods and beverages, get plenty of rest, and let the body do its magic. For people who go to the doctor every time they’re coughing and sneezing, to get a pill is because they believe in pills and medicine. That’s what they believe in. They think it’s okay. Someone who’s searching for pills probably long for a solution that is effective, works, and trust.
Their motivation to take medicine and pill is that we will find the permanent solution to our weight and health problems.
Society encourages us to figure it all out as fast as possible. All have to be perfect and work ALL the time without downtime. We are NOT information, tools, and apps deficient. Oftentimes, in search of the perfect result, we end up spending a significant amount of time and energy searching for immediate relief instead of thinking about long-term consequences. There is nothing wrong with relief care, it can be part of any healing protocol.
My final answer for you is…
Do you believe that a pill or pills can help release weight, bring vitality back and help you reach a potential you didn’t even think existed in you?
