Disease is complex. Achieving health is simple. Simple is seldom easy. I believe the body is the perfect machine and when given what it needs it will automatically operate in its own best interest. The body works for health by design providing you do your part.
The first essential factor is you must believe that. Waiting for a magic bullet to solve your health issue leads to hopelessness and inaction. Anyone saying, “You have to learn to live with it” Is NOT acceptable. Take your focus off the illness and refocus on wellness puts you in the driver’s seat. The prevalent view of something outside of us is responsible puts you at the effect of the unknown and an all-knowing system. You are not helpless and there is always something to do to return your system back to health and balance.
The second factor is increasing your body’s oxygen supply. Exercise is the easiest and quickest method. A brisk walk daily, taking the flight of stairs instead of the elevator a couple times a day or any number of small acts to break out of the usual sedentary life we create in front of the boob tube. A product I use enables red blood cells to carry two oxygen molecules instead of one. Doubles the oxygen my body has with every breath!
Factor three is stopping unresolved stress you allow added to the day. You compromise your body’s ability to maintain equilibrium and balance each day it continues. For many people simply recognizing what is happening is all they have to do to let it go. Adding a daily walk gives time for this factor to take place too. Two factors improve with a daily walk.
Food and feeding your body the proper nutritious diet it deserves is the fourth factor. There are plenty of studies suggesting a multi-vitamin is not an answer. Given the cost is might add to factor three instead of subtract. You will have to do some work and part of it is refraining from an easy answer. The trouble is a vast majority of information comes from a one size fits all belief system and that is not true. Designing your nutritional program is not difficult once you know where to begin.
The fifth factor is seldom considered. If you are in distress, diseased or not at optimum health now, you are likely eating foods you shouldn’t and not eating foods you should. I do not mean the chips, Twinkies and beer either. Most of what you consider healthy may in fact be a major part of the problem. Again, the one size fits all, ‘we are all the same’ mantra has you buy into fads, myth and nonsensical health solutions from well meaning but brainwashed and uninformed so called experts. They are experts about the same identical human body we supposedly all inhabit. Fact is all of us are different and unique.
I rid myself of a chronic illness. I was able to stop taking all prescription medications and I have lived free of the disease ever since. The method works for anyone willing to take his or her life back. Each of the five factors is open to your full participation. It is about self-discovery and less about what I or anyone else did or does. The answers are out there! Your body knows. Learn to listen to it.
