What is health these days?
Health is balance; it is an inner resilience that allows us to meet the demands of living without being overwhelmed.
Health is not static. In order to come back to health in a better way, it is normal to lose it periodically. Our natural healing mechanisms attempt to re-establish body equilibrium whenever it breaks down. In other words, any breakdown in health activates healing as an automatic process.
Have our expectations for health changed?
Our perceptions of health are greatly influenced by our expectations. The trend and emphasis should be on positive health, as opposed to the mere absence of disease. We appear to be less willing to tolerate minor problems which detract from our life quality and we demand more in terms of physical and mental well-being.
Transforming health then, requires transforming perception and/or expectation.
If you are expecting too much from yourself, perhaps you should consider what investment you are making to preserve and transform health. A great place to start is to evaluate nutritional, lifestyle and psychosocial issues, the results of which will develop into a personalized wellness plan to establish new priorities and increase vitality. Food is not only the most effective preventive measure, it is the best alternative medicine. My goal is to help you embrace non-traditional nutritional treatment plans that incorporate lifestyle changes you can sustain for a lifetime.
