Be Heathy by Choice, Not by Chance

What is Wellness?

 

Currently Wellness is the fasting growing industry in North America, and though it is not listed in the American Heritage Dictionary (copyright 1982) that occupies my bookshelf, it is very well represented on the Internet.

There is no universally accepted definition of Wellness, yet there are many common characteristics:

  • A choice, a decision to move toward optimal health
  • A balanced lifestyle one designs to achieve their highest potential of wellbeing
  • A condition of physical, mental and emotional health, maintained by proper diet and exercise
  • An integration of body, mind and soul
  • Awareness that choices made in one area of living, affects another
  • Is influenced by and includes, one's relationships with family, friends, society, environment, career and finances

 

Our world is changing.  The US, once in the top 10 of healthy nations, now leads the world in chronic, degenerative disease.

 Challenges we face as a nation and globally are critical factors in the development of disease:

  • Depleted soils, a lack of nourishment in our food supply and use of preservatives to prolong shelf life
  • "Convenient" fast foods with high calories and no nutritive value
  • Sick building syndrome due to out-gassing of building materials leaving us with poor indoor air quality
  • A water supply that is at risk with bacteria, heavy metals and toxins
  • The expensive alternative of bottled water that is less regulated and packaged in cancer-causing materials
  • Lack of sleep due to bedding material, bed design, financial worry and stress
  • EMF radiation (electro magnetic frequencies) from cell phones, computers and modern technology.

 Sounding the Alarm is a compelling revelation on how healthy living has become more difficult and increasingly complicated. 

 

 

We've been raised with drugs and surgery as the usual course of treatment. What if the secret to rediscovering one's health was to be found in self-care, prevention and natural solutions?

Sleep... The foundation of good health provides the necessary recovery and renewal for wellbeing

Water... Quality hydration with clean, mineral-rich, alkaline, energized water nourishes cells, tissues and the brain while supporting all body function.

Air... Pure indoor air that is refreshing and revitalizing, like nature intended.

Energy... Natural energy in the form of magnetic and light solutions to help ease the stress of EMF's.

Bio-Replenishment... a mineral management that restores the body's chemical bank to its youthful levels.

Nutrition... Proper nutrition with fresh, local, organic foods and organic, whole-food supplementation to fill in the gaps.

Fitness (Exercise & Diet)... Where most people focus their health goals, is more readily available and safely achieved by attention to these other areas first.

Attitude... (based on thoughts and emotions) is a key factor in health / disease and success / failure in all areas of life.

Finances... Impact every aspect of our lives and have a huge influence on our health.

Who do you know living with one or more of these "common" health challenges? Bad back, chronic pain, bone loss, aching joints or muscles, sleep problems, headaches, weight concerns, breathing challenges, sinus issues, blood sugar problems, stiff neck, digestive issues, carpal tunnel, on-going colds, low energy? 

Since 'repetitiion is the mother of all learning,' my repeated inquiry is:  what if the key elements for optimal health and well-being were based on prevention and self care?  That recovery and renewal were possible through an organic and natural process?  Hear what my friend and colleague, Dr. Gary Lindner has to say.

 

 

What if just one person you know and cared about were helped by this information?  And, if they chose to pay it forward and share their success story with someone they know and love, how would that feel?  A global community of people are doing just that.  Grassroots, people-to-people, changing healthcare into selfcare.  It starts with a decision.  I'm so glad that I chose to say, 'yes.'

I look forward to hearing your stories, answering your questions and strategizing solutions as you are interested.
