Recipe for healthCan we put in a few words all the wisdom of healthy living? Sort of a simple health recipe? That shouldn't be too hard. The recipe for health is quite simple:
u Replenish what your body needs for health, with diet that is optimized for you, with complementary dietary supplements and adequate rest. And, yes - it does mean what your body needs. Not more, not less. The word is balance. Balance between
nutritional intake and needs
Excesses over your needs - particularly in the intake of isolated, "favored" nutrients, or in caloric intake - are as bad as deficiency.
Your genetics, age, personality, lifestyle and health condition determine your needs: types and the intake level of nutrients, frequency and intensity of physical exercise, rest time, as well as the emotional and spiritual nourishment. Any significant long-term imbalance will compromise your health.
u Detoxification is a never ending battle these days: our environment is soaked with toxins, and so is each of us. Most of us don't know our specific exposures, and vulnerabilities, but the risk is real, and it is better to be safe than sorry.
Keep your body toxins as low as possible, by making sure your detox system is efficient, and by flashing them out with detox protocols. Minimize all sources of toxic contamination by filtering your air and water, as well as by avoiding food toxins as much as you can. Lastly, minimize your exposure to man-made energy fields.
u Rejoice. Don't forget the main purpose of all this: enjoy and appreciate every minute of that precious gift of life you've been given. Don't allow negative emotions - fear, anger, guilt, feeling of inadequacy - to rule your life. You are your worst enemy if you accept anything that diminishes you as a person.
Dare to wish, and to believe in yourself. There is little to live for without it - don't think for a moment that your body doesn't know it.
