Lucky to Be Healthy?
Holistic health and wellness are more than just luck. Genetics certainly play a part, but health is driven by a whole lifestyle. It is about taking care of the body, mind, and spirit through many modalities. The world of wellness sees many approaches to health and nutrition. This includes trends, diets, and supplements that all claim their own benefits.
The term holistic can be paired with medicine, doctor, coach, and specialist, and is found in many different cultures throughout the world. This natural and unique point of view in healthy living is based on the consideration of the individual, including all aspects of lifestyle. This approach incorporates emotional, spiritual, and physical state to create a matter of well-being for optimum health.
The first aspect to this lifestyle is nutrition. As the saying goes, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”. The idea is we can use our nutrition to treat and prevent poor health conditions and disease.
- Supplements (vitamins/minerals)
- Meal preparation
- Holistic cooking techniques, such as unrefined, unprocessed, organic, and locally grown whole foods
- Proper sleeping habits
- Macro nutrient amounts
- Daily exercise
Body and Mind Connection
Furthermore, a holistic lifestyle considers both body and mind connection. This goes beyond exercise and diet, creating awareness for mental and emotional well-being. It deals with stress management, emotional blocks, and recognizing your personal needs.
- Personalized Coaching
- Goals & Motivation
- Stress Management
- Ongoing Support
Finally, instead of following FAD diets or less customized methods, Holistic wellness assesses your complete health history. This includes your emotional state, lifestyle habits, and current dietary habits to determine the root cause of your health issues.
- Eating local & organic
- Use natural products such as cleaners and makeup/beauty
- Environmental Toxin awareness
Holistic health is one of the most beneficial approaches to wellness because it considers long term health. It isn’t about luck. Its about a lifestyle.
