Living Holistically is the Only Choice to Achieve Optimal Health
You must be honest with yourself and have an open mind to discover the true potential of holistic health and healing.
Holistic Healthcare is very different from conventional medicine. Though conventional medicine does have a place in emergency care situations, it does not prevent health issues or restore a person’s true health. Instead, it treats symptoms with pharmaceuticals that only mask health issues so as to give the illusion of health.
Conventional medicine does not address the root cause of health conditions. It takes away personal control and responsibility for health by leading us to believe that only drugs can prevent and/or slow down (never cure) health conditions.
Holistic Healthcare focuses on the whole individual, as opposed to just symptoms and disease. It considers the nutritional, physical and emotional needs that are unique to each person, as all three are equally important in preventing or treating disease and maintaining optimal health. It is not just about relieving pain and other symptoms associated with a disease, rather it is about taking responsibility for your health and well-being.
Living holistically means achieving optimal health through proper nutrition and movement, lifestyle choices, and an overall positive attitude toward your health.
When it comes to nutrition, our society as a whole consumes an overabundance of processed foods containing artificial chemicals that we know have a negative impact on health. These foods are considered “empty calories” because they contain little to no nutritional value. So basically, day after day we continue to add these “empty calories” to our already nutrient deficient bodies.
These processed foods also contain artificial sugars and chemically derived food dyes despite studies proving them to cause hyperactivity, severe allergic reactions, and even cancer.
We incorporate several servings of fruits and vegetables into our daily meal plans, but unfortunately, this equals daily consumption of pesticides, despite the proof of their carcinogenic properties. Over time, as people continue to eat these chemically laden vegetables and fruits, they are unknowingly creating underlying health issues, which only continue to grow. Independent studies have shown that simply washing the produce does not remove the toxic chemicals.
There is a belief that GMO containing foods (Genetically Modified Organisms) are better for you than what nature intended. GMOs are not the same thing as cross-pollination which occurs spontaneously in nature. GMOs are combinations created in a lab with an unknown consequence to organic beings. Despite extreme health concerns, GMOs continue to be cleared for human consumption unchecked for any oversight. And let’s not forget the addition of pesticides that are spliced into the seeds of foods such as corn.
Today’s world requires less and less physical movement. More and more of our daily tasks can be done sitting in a chair or in your car. Children rarely play outside anymore because they are obsessed with their small screens of illusion that disconnect their impressionable young minds and leave them with a lack of compassion from the many popular games focusing on killing and the spilling of blood. Neighborhoods no longer ring out with the laughter and shouts of children playing, let alone using their imagination.
Children are exceedingly more “stressed out” today, and sadly many suffer from anxiety and depression. It used to be that we would sit in a classroom and our greatest distraction was the fact that the clock seemed to be moving at a snail’s pace as we waited for the bell to ring. Sure, we worried about papers and exams, and what friends we should hang out with over the weekend, but we certainly didn’t lose sleep over these things. Today kids are constantly faced with an overabundance of homework and extracurricular activities, standardized testing in addition to class-specific tests, peer pressure, cyber-bullying, violence, and pressures brought on by overly competitive parents. There are just too many demands put on today’s youth and so they start to question themselves and wonder if what they should be doing is in line with what they realistically can do.
Barely moving and in a constant state of stress, it is no wonder that diabetes, obesity, heart disease, autoimmune and cancer are more prevalent in children under the age of 10 than ever in modern history.
No matter your age, real health care is actually very simple!
No nonsense – No Fluff
It is vital that you understand the three fundamental concepts that support optimal health:
- The body must move.
- The body must be given clean organic whole foods (free of chemicals), along with supplemental nutrition to regenerate, heal, and thrive.
- The body ALWAYS responds to your true thoughts and beliefs – especially those in your subconscious. Luckily, it is easier than you think to get in touch with your subconscious mind.
Remember, the only person who can bring your life back into balance and your health to its most favorable state is you. Simply put, if you don’t take control of your life, outside influences will.
In a world that has become so polluted and synthetic, it takes quite a bit of work to achieve optimal health. Think about the three “D’s”:
If you believe in your goals and in yourself, then you believe that anything is possible! And with this mindset, anything can be achieved.
Remember, It’s Your Life…OWN it!
