Often, having our basic needs secured causes a loss of vitality and a deterioration in our way of living and feeling, a reduction in instinctive reactions which should come from the gut. In fact, having a full fridge is a metaphor for conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular illnesses, while having an empty soul symbolises problems such as anxiety and depression. Therefore, if we don’t want to end up taking pills, we will have to make some decisions instead. David Vargas accompanies us in the decisions we need to make if we want to take back control of our health and wellbeing, in other words, the control of our lives.
