What is good health?

23/08/2011

I use the following line to sum up good health:

“Health is when the body is able to keep equilibrium, or homeostasis.  Keeping the body’s systems in balance”.

Often, due to predispositions, lifestyle and stressful events we lose the ability to keep our systems in balance and pressure is placed on other organs and systems which then compensate for these weaknesses. The compensation is meant to be short term.  But if required to compensate on a long term basis, things start to go wrong.

So how can we keep our bodies in balance?

Regular exercise
Plenty of raw fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds (these provide  high density nutrition with vitamins and minerals in abundance)
Plenty of fresh clean water (filtered)
Lean protein (both vegetable and animal)
Meditation
Relaxation techniques
Laughter

Try doing this for 1 or 2 months and see if you feel the difference.  Making changes to diet and lifestyle is all about wanting to do the best for you!  Once you have decided to make some positive change, it’s a great way to feel good about yourself.

Always treat yourself the way you would treat a loved one.

Good luck!
