Since health is all about balance, it’s easy to picture a pair of scales. On one side is the negative, on the other side the positive.
Healthy living can tip the scale in favor of wellness.
• optimal whole foods nutrition
• regular exercise
• fresh air
• proper rest, relaxation and sleep
• pure water
• wholesome mental, emotional and spiritual input
• nurturing relationships
• satisfying work
• laughter and good humor
• connecting with the beauty in nature
These foundational precepts are necessary to tip the scale in favor of wellness. The opposite of each of the above can tip the scale in the other direction toward toxic or ill. It is easy to figure out the opposites of the well list, but getting the length, height, width, and depth of both ways of living takes some study.
What constitutes toxic accumulations that can move us to plaguing symptoms and dis-ease? Heavy metals, parasites, and a host of toxic chemicals found in food, air, water, cleaning products, drugs and body care products. Some exposures may occur in the workplace or from hobbies one has participated in. As these toxins build up in your internal and external environments, you must work aggressively to tip the scale the other way.
Every day scales are positively tipping by people who desire and embrace health. They take steps to cultivate healthy habits, scrutinizing what they’ve been putting in, on, and around their bodies. Empowered with accurate knowledge, they readily make appropriate changes to healthier versions.
