“There’s a whole other side to health and that begins with the individual and one’s health philosophy, which starts in the mind. A new, proactive perspective on health, rooted in nutrition utilization, can bring copious amounts of joy, energy, and quality of life. No doctor’s checkups, tests, or prescriptions are needed.”
That is a quote from what I think is an excellent article you can read here. Now before you jump all over me I am not saying it’s never a good idea to go to the doctor. Absolutely not! I’m just saying, you may have more power than you think to get and keep yourself healthy.
I have long told clients that “I firmly believe that we are each responsible for our own health and well-being. In order to make effective choices, we must have practical information that we can understand and apply to our lives.”
I always encourage people, and particularly women, to become proactive and my mission is to help them do just that. I’ve said before it always blesses me when I see another expert saying the same thing I have been saying for years. That’s why this article was so encouraging to me.
I address all health issues from spirit, soul and body – not just from the physical symptoms. You cannot ignore one aspect of your being and expect to be truly whole and vibrantly healthy. If you are in top physical condition – like an elite athlete – but spiritually you are lost or you are mired in negative thinking or held captive by destructive, toxic emotions – how healthy do you really think you will be?
All too often people begin experiencing some symptom – it could be headaches, fatigue, weight gain, foggy thinking, mood swings – it doesn’t matter. Usually their first step is to go to the doctor and get something to get rid of the symptom. But as I’ve said in previous posts – you are only masking the symptom if you never get to the root that is causing it. Symptoms don’t usually just happen overnight. There is an underlying imbalance that has been in place for a while before your body starts talking to you.
I love that this article says real healthcare begins with each of us, because it does! And I will add – being proactive and practicing preventive lifestyle habits is MUCH easier than trying to correct imbalances and heal illnesses.
What preventative habits do you practice to stay healthy?
