My Basic Principles of Health & Healing
” A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illness” – Hippocrates (460BC- 377BC)
Approximately 90-95% of all diseases result from faulty diet and lifestyle practices.
Now think about the number of people today taking numerous medications to cover up the symptoms these diseases have caused and while most of us still continue to expose ourselves to the factors of its origin. The cycle continues to worsen as the body has to then fight against this added chemical being subjected into the body, creating weakening of other health systems and therefore more negative symptoms, needing more medication and the cycle continues… It’s exhausting just reading about it!
Treating symptoms of disease results in a negative cycle of deteriorating health. Listen to your bodies warning signs no matter how insignificant they may seem and heal the cause not the symptoms.
Our bodies systems (circulatory, digestive, hormonal, muscular skeletal) all work as one. The compromised health of one of these systems results in a spiralling deterioration of health in the others.
These are my basic principles of health:
1. Build healthy foundations:
Implement the 4 Doctors into your lifestyle- Dr Quite, Dr Diet, Dr Happiness, Dr Movement
2. Nourish the bodies systems:
High quality nutrition and hydration that is individualised to your body.
A balance of movement that allows you to ‘work in’ and ‘work out’.
3. Heal the body when necessary from the root cause:
Using nutrition, lifestyle changes and other practices, the body can be rebalanced naturally and therefore allowing it to heal the way it was made to.
Through my journey of healing my body from disease and my interaction with clients coming to me with long lists of symptoms all diet and lifestyle related, I feel very strongly towards these basic principle of health. We all deserve to live our most happiest and healthiest life possible. If you would like more insight into your bodies individualised needs, feel free to email me regarding a health consultation.
