Understanding “THE 6 WAYS TO HEALTH”
– There is no getting out of it, if you are alive you have to deal with stress in one form or another and our bodies are designed to do this, stress can be physical or emotional. A lack of specific nutrients, food intolerances can cause stress. An argument with someone, a breakup with a partner or friend, a losing a job or a loved one can all cause emotional stress. If we find we are often feeling stressed then we need to develop techniques to manage stress. There are two components to this, first we must accept that things are going to happen that we don’t necessarily like and this is how life rolls, this understanding brings a kind of acceptance which is very valuable and assists us in problem solving rather than over worrying. The second element, is to learn stress management techniques (especially if you didn’t develop this in childhood) which we can assist with through one on one consults and meditation classes.
– Apparently we are exposed to more chemicals and environmental pollutants in one day than our ancestors where in their whole lifetime! There are many places you can start in helping to reduce your chemical load, check your cleaning products, gardening products, beauty and hygiene products, move to organic food, stop smoking or move to herbal cigarettes…..the list goes on. To avoid getting overwhelmed just change over the things that are less important to you, as you run out of one thing move to your healthier replacement. Consider your electromagnetic radiation load, switch the wifi off at night, reduce your exposure, limit TV watching, remove TV’s from every room in the house. You can also place potted plants around the house for a healthier living environment.
What About GENETICS?
Of course our genes play a role in how we look, how our body functions, grows and develops – we can’t change our genes! But guess what, the “6 ways” influence and determine the impact our genetics have on our health. Smoking, over- eating, alcohol consumption, nutrient deplete diets, all negatively impact our genetic risk factors and can influences them from being expressed. In fact knowing about some of our genes can help us understand if we are in much greater need of a particular nutrient and therefore supplement with it in higher amounts.
