This will allow you to experiment and eventually incorporate a variety of healthy changes that are compatible with your individual lifestyle. You will be able to dramatically improve your health by just making small, consistent changes on a daily basis. Adopt a holistic health plan to treat both your body and mind.
True health is far more than the absence of disease symptoms. It is a state of abundant energy and physical and emotional well-being, including the regular experience of joy and satisfaction. True health is present only when the individual is in balance, and balance is achieved only when he or she is healthy in body, mind, and spirit.
Five simple yet essential steps are necessary for achieving and maintaining a healthy body. They include:
Following a proper diet.
Taking adequate nutritional supplementation.
Drinking an adequate amount of water.
Getting regular exercise.
Getting adequate sleep and relaxation.
An integrative approach to wellness involves combining the best of mainstream and complementary therapies. Wiith the introduction of Cartesian dualism in the 18th century, matters of the mind became the domain of the church and the body became the domain of science. This split resulted in a mechanistic, disease-focused approach to health. Health is a dynamic, holistic state encompassing mind, body, and spirit dimensions, not simply the absence of disease. Additionally, the body possesses an innate healing ability. "Remembered wellness" refers to the body's ability and desire to remain balanced and healthy if supported in this process. Complementary therapies share this holistic view of health and focus on accessing and supporting the body's innate healing ability.
The scientific evidence that each of these factors plays a critical role in safeguarding our health is truly overwhelming. Unfortunately, as a nation, we are deficient in all of these areas even though each of them, from eating a healthy diet to getting adequate sleep, is well within our grasp. The Expert-Nurse website discusses the basic guidelines you can follow to quickly and easily make these components part of your daily life. Please be advised that the lifestyle changes and supplements sugessted are not intended to treat or cure any disease. Rather, they are meant to support the body's ability to heal itself.
If you hold yourself dear, protect yourself well.
