Symptoms are common…but are they normal? 

Symptoms are common but this does not mean that they are normal. How many people do you know that suffer from one or more of the following: headaches, migraines, gut issues (constipation, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, IBS, heartburn), insomnia, inflammation, fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight issues, etc?? A symptoms is a sign from your body that something is not right, something is out of balance. Often people are not listening to their body or choose to ignore it. Sometimes they reach for a quick fix, a 'magic' pill, just so they can continue on with their life without making any changes to their lifestyle. This is only a short term solution and often has other health implications down the track. They don't look for the root cause of what may be causing the symptom in the first place.

It is always better to find the cause of what is causing  you issues, From here, true healing can occur. In today's society we are quick to take medication as an easy solution but this does not help us in the long term. For long lasting health and vitality, we need to take control of our health and live according to the 6 foundation principles. Identify areas in our life that we can improve and grow and make ourselves as healthy and vital as possible. Symptoms may be common but they are not normal, even though today so many people are suffering from so many chronic health conditions and illnesses. Look after yourself and make some changes today!!

Are you proactive or reactive?

Are you proactive or reactive with your health?  

Many people are reactive – meaning they live their life without making any healthy changes to their life until a health issue comes up. When they get sick, they act on it, I.e. see the doctor and take whatever medication they are prescribed to treat/mask the symptoms. Often they make no other changes to their lifestyle. 

Being proactive means to take care of yourself BEFORE something happens. This means following the 6 foundation principles: thinking positive thoughts, breathing correctly, eating organic whole foods, drinking enough filtered water, moving (working in vs working out), and getting enough quality sleep.  

This blog covers the importance of being proactive and looking after yourself rather than doing something in response to getting sick or being diagnosed with a condition. In today’s society, it is so easy to be reactive, but it is really important that we take control of our health and look after yourselves.

Do you feel like you are missing out?

Do you feel like you are missing out?

Sometimes when people start a new eating plan or a new 'diet', they feel as though they are 'missing out'. But what are they missing out on? Is it the junk food? Processed foods? The ability to eat whatever they want? To be able to eat what 'everyone else' is eating?

.In my blog I have a closer look at junk and processed foods….

- What are these foods really made of and how nutritious are they?

- How they can affect your body?

- Why you can't stop eating them? 

- Why some people appear to be able to eat anything and everything with virtually no effect on their body? (or is there but you just can't see it?)

- What does being 'skinny fat' mean?

- Why our bodies are not designed to be eating junk and processed foods?

- Why you should choose to eat whole organic foods over processed foods?
