This Report presents a practical approach to attaining and maintaining optimum health
• NUTRITION; Your knowledge and wisdom
With the weather as erratic as it’s around the planet, cooling down to the chills of autumn (fall) and winter, or heating to the searing temperatures of warm summer days it’s essential to be feeding the body with the ideal amount of HEALTHY, FRESH and ORGANIC nutrition to encourage a sustainable healthy lifestyle. Eat into fresh homemade vegetable soups that are quickly absorbed into the body because of their already liquid condition. Fresh fruits are also a staple part of a healthy and sustainable lifestyle in addition to lean and organic meats from chicken and beef to fish and other exceptionally lean game meats that are exceptionally high in iron and protein although very low in fat.
Most local fresh food markets (NOT SUPERMARKETS) are an excellent source of healthy nutrient-rich food and you can enjoy the air with a buddy on a healthy lunch. If you’re not able to make it into the markets and your only choice is your supermarket, then I encourage you to do your shopping from around the outside border of the store, where all of the freshest vegetables, meats, dairy, and fresher bread have been kept. Buy or even increase (if you can) some spices and herbs to enhance the flavor of your foods, in addition, to increase the number of minerals in your diet. Minerals help the body absorb all of the vitamins that work to build greater total health.
With my expertise in the health and physical fitness sector I have recognized that very rarely do many of my clients focus on, be aware of, or are aware of the condition of inside health, yet only after the health has destabilized to the stage of illness or disorder do many recognize it in their lack of energy, motivation, varying weight (not necessarily increased) and ultimately diminished health status.
Here are some questions you should be asking yourself and answering. . .honestly!
1. Are you worried about the number of toxins and chemicals in your environment?
2. Do you feel you get enough nutrition from the food you currently eat?
3. Can you eat organic produce?
4. Do you currently receive a solid 8 hours of sleep each night?
5. Can you feel awake every morning when you wake up?
6. Have you got trouble losing weight?
7. Can you eat coffee, tea, sugar, candy, or similar products to give you a boost throughout the day?
• More than 65 insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides are located on everyday produce purchased at the market?
• More people today are reliant on external stimulants to get through the day, gas being the biggest offender
• Most of us now have scheduled maintenance for our vehicle, our house air conditioner, water systems as well as our pools; however, we aren’t always as diligent with our own internal maintenance.
You see then, the largest issue (pardon the pun) for lots of people this day and age in our western societies is not only a lack of fitness, motivation, determination but also a lack of real and life-giving knowledge and education in regards to healthy nutrition and sustainability. As a health professional, I think and encourage a more holistic approach to a complete and sustainable way of life. Health professionals should be teaching patients and clients toward a holistic and total lifestyle through adequate nutrition and exercise. I firmly believe that education rather than drugs are the key to optimum, sustainable health, and wellbeing.
• EXERCISE; Your healthy motivation to attain!
The days are gone when:
1. An easy walk around the block has been the motivation to visit the shops and get bread and milk. Instead, Today: driving to the shops in the vehicle is significantly more time-efficient.
2. A game of soccer, cricket, or football in the street was interrupted by passing cars and the milkman! Instead Now: interrupted by a brand new sport for the”simulated game console”
3. A rainy day was spent inside playing cards, building mini battlegrounds in the bedroom, a game of monopoly or scrabble Instead Now: hours spent before this 100cm plasma playing the most recent software game
4. The tired parent preparing a simple meal comprising a platter of fresh carrots, celery, cheese, tomato, capsicum, cucumber, beetroot, apples, bananas, nuts, bread rolls, sliced ham, and turkey… which is exactly what I can remember from when I was 5yrs old. Instead Today: purchase FATTY, OVERCOOKED, UNHEALTHY TAKEAWAY
These are simply a couple of examples of the changes that I have discovered from the Australian western cultured background of the previous 30 years and I grew up in a big family where everybody who could; played football, gymnastics, cricket, basketball, hockey, volleyball, tennis, AFL, rugby league, rugby union..you name it we played with it competitively or in a backyard, quiet road capacity. Exercise has been left in the dark and just the dedicated, sport target-oriented, people remain. Otherwise, it is those dedicated to some type of weekly physical fitness program with a personal trainer. To people who don’t have a personal trainer and last more than 12 months, trying to find above-average health. . .congratulations. I am talking about those who could be in the class of gold moves to their neighborhood gym, I am talking about people who step out at any time of the year and take part in some kind of exercise regimen or personal health interest.
1. What makes you tick, is it java or endorphins?
2. What food did you eat as a kid, was it chocolate cake or fruit?
3. How often can you run around the block without getting tired?
4. Have you ever been inspired to go for a walk, ride, swim, or run in the previous 30 days?
5. Have you eaten a lot of food that you feel lethargic?
6. How often have you been ill this year?
7. How often did you get sick last year?
NOTE: This is the beginning of my International Campaign: HOLISTIC LIVING; this is the first of my Monthly”Holistic Healthful Tips”
I will continue to place them in the same category HEALTH AND FITNESS; NUTRITION
I am delighted to take feedback from some of my posts and invite all to publish and share these with individuals who they feel need some encouragement and inspiration.
I am goal-driven and that aim is Global Health through education and training. I’ve witnessed many areas of Australia and the Pacific in which the overall health status is very poor and I feel that is remedied with the ideal approach. Too many times it is thought that money is the response to all our problems. I would love to share a quote that I think sums it up.
“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will live forever” Arrested Development.
I’ve started building a Global Referral Network of seasoned, highly qualified health professionals that are enthusiastic about addressing the root cause of our worldwide health crisis. Many of my clients will need to be taught what is healthy nutrition and what isn’t. If you’re passionate about good health and just a goal-driven Health Professional please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll send you an information pack. Join a Global Referral Network of Health Professionals, in order to share your knowledge and gain more. Through these many posts, I hope I can influence a larger mindset and make aware of the actual demand for education and training, in regards to attaining and maintaining good health.
