Are you feeding your ‘Health Pension’?
We’re all encouraged to have a monetary pension so we’ll have some money to enjoy our retirement. But, what if you’re ill?

What would you do in your retirement? I know I’d travel, read more, relax more, spend more time with my friends who’d also be retired by then, take crazy courses and loads more stuff.
But, here’s that but again, what if you’re ill? What if you don’t live long enough to reap the rewards of the pension you’re paying into or you’re chronically ill?
Don’t be one of those people who leave it until they’ve got a chronic disease to start thinking about your nutrition!
