You might think this blog is about having to visit the restroom. Actually, it is about that gut feeling you might be suppressing when you hear someone say “health food, supplements, organic or healthy living.” What are these folks so enthused about? Does “nature” have the answers to better health?
The contrast between living healthy and the daily habits you’ve acquired over the years may be quite stark. Yet down deep, you know you’re living in a world full of health challenges from synthetic chemicals, processed foods, inordinate stress, pollution and a myriad of toxic exposures.
Are you longing to make a difference in your health and life? For many, the health part seems like an almost insurmountable mountain. “Health is not my profession or area of expertise.” That may be what you tell yourself or “It’s best left to the scholars.” Yet, you’re secretly wishing to no longer be overweight, dealing with a chronic health condition, or being resigned to the downward spiral you’ve been told is inevitable.
Haven’t you’ve noticed that for the really important stuff, like marriage, parenting and knowing how to live each day so as to maintain health, most of us fly by the seat of our pants? Does that mean that there isn’t accurate knowledge and wisdom available to us? No, it just means we haven’t searched for it.
Positive change is possible by taking in accurate knowledge and applying it. An obvious great help is learning about the awesome human body and its capacity to heal. Appreciating the harmony of body systems all working together to maintain balance (homeostasis), we will logically see the need to stop doing what is causing us problems and start doing what builds and maintains health. For this, we all need skillful direction.
The educational process should empower you to become aware of what true health is and isn’t, as well as helping you to gain the momentum to live each day inspired, motivated and happy to embrace the beauty of living life to the fullest.
Coaching many over the past twenty-five years, I’ve seen their strong desire to make living healthy a top life priority. Did they know it meant work? Yes, you bet they did. Some knew that change might be harder for them than for others. But, they were ready, determined and committed. It really boils down to how much you want to be well. When you realize that there’s joy in the journey, you persist.
I personally was ready to do whatever was necessary for me to get well. When presented with accurate knowledge, I immediately put it into effect, seeing results. Each of my clients becomes a student of natural health, an avid researcher and missionary of sorts encouraging others to live healthier in this world of numerous challenges.
