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.

Why buy organic?

I always promote buying and eating organic food but many people are unsure if they should and if it is worth their money.  What you eat has a tremendous impact on your health today and also for your health in the future. This blog touches on why you should eat organic and what the benefits are. 

Yes, organic food is more expensive but I always believe you get what you pay for. Would you rather pay the farmer or the doctor? I know I would rather pay and support the farmers because without them we would have no fresh produce. Remember, when you buy organic, you are not only improving the health of yourself and your family, but you are also supporting the environment....for us and for future generations. Vote with your dollar. Support local farmers who are doing the best for their land, for us and for the environment. 

Whatever diet you follow, be that wholefoods, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, high fat low carb, etc, you will only be as healthy as the quality of your food. You should always pick 'Certified Organic' regardless of what diet plan you may follow. Always think quality over quantity.
