How To Get To The Truth About Your Health
Have you ever experienced hearing something so profound, it made you feel differently about life? You felt it in your body. At your core essence you knew you had heard, and felt the truth? And it resonated so deeply that it changed you in some way?
We live in a world that is full of information, more than at any time in history. How do you get to the truth about your health, to know what’s right for your body with so much conflicting advice out there.
As I observe the crisis we have with healthcare, the increase in allergies in kids, the rise in obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle related diseases, and each time the record of not enough beds is exceeded, I know, deep down, we are looking in the wrong place for the answers.
The normal 21st century way of living is making us stressed, tired, in pain, overweight, overwhelmed or depressed. Yet never have we been more self-aware of our issues, flaws, weaknesses, so much to blame on our current stage of health and happiness. On my own journey, and helping others with theirs, I found that self-awareness has commonly turned into self-consciousness of all that’s wrong with ourselves. We feel vulnerable to those reasons for the rest of our lives, and seek solutions to work on what we think we have to fix in order that we may feel whole again.
We weren’t made to be this way.
We were born happy, our innate nature is good health, happiness, aliveness and wisdom. So what makes us think it’s not there? How have we forgotten?
As we look outwards seeking ways to make us happy yet it’s our innate nature to be happpy. We fill our brains with more and more information, thinking, stressing, that there isn’t room for anything else, new ideas, solutions, peace. There comes a time to question, are we even looking in the right place?
There is another way.
All of my adult life, I’ve had a thirst to explore more about health, and I’ve loved learning and enjoyed new information and knowledge. I’ve shared wonderful experiences helping others, and I’ve gotten to experience the value of joy with my students and graduate practitioners as they release themselves from pain, stress, and past traumas and go on to help others do the same.
We know intuitively that how we are feeling is connected to our thinking. We know intuitively that how we are feeling is also connected to what we eat, and how much we move our bodies.
By learning how our diet affects us long term, we can make better food choices. By reducing stress and letting go of fears and grief, we can return to better health and wellbeing. When we make health the focus and not just the absence of disease, the body naturally loses weight, we sleep better, and pain goes. The body knows how to heal itself. On our Balanced Health courses we teach people the whole person approach so our students can learn how to identify the underlying causes to health issues, empower their own lives and help transform their health and that of others. It’s the start of a rewarding career.
Aligning your life to seeking the truth in others brings real connection and presence to our lives, and I think we need more of that. The way to better health and happiness is to know it’s already there.
We just forgot.
Enjoy the journey of rediscovering yours.
