The Body is a Miracle

Bowl of mixed herbsThe human body is capable of far more than most people realize. To overcome the healthcare crisis that we face in the world today, individuals need to get inspired to take responsibility for their own health. This process of change will not begin at the top. Governments are not going to lead the way for a healthier future as they are too heavily invested (economically) within industries that profit from sickness and disease. Nor can we rely solely on teachers and the educational system to teach each child the value of leading a happy and healthy life. This responsibility starts with each individual and within each home.

A New Healthcare Model (Holistic Healing)

To overcome the current healthcare crisis that plagues the majority of first world countries, there is a need for a new health care model that is client focused and holistic in nature. First and foremost, each individual will want to take responsibility for their own health and wellness and make decisions that reflect their desire to be healthy and happy. As such each individual focuses on the ‘Foundation Principles’ of health on a daily basis, whether they are looking to remain healthy or recovering from pain, illness or disease.

This new Holistic model of health care will allow clients to surround themselves with a team of health professionals that is most suited to their needs.

Under this new model clients will be empowered to practice self-care that is based firmly on the foundation principles. These habits should be adopted both for preventative care and for healing purposes. Medical doctors and allied health professionals (Physiotherapists, Naturopaths, Psychologists, Chiropractors, Chinese Practitioners, Counsellors, etc) can work together to support clients and develop a cost-effective strategy for maintaining or restoring health. This new model will replace the current allopathic (medical) model that often disempowers patients and does little to restore their health.

Effortless Superhuman–OUR VISION

Each individual has the freedom to make choices that are in their own best interest. In other words, they have the freedom to take responsibility for their decisions and to consciously make choices that lead to better health and wellness and greater happiness.This is our worldview –the way it could be!

Conscious Living

This may mean that you consciously choose to:

  • Work fewer hours per week
  • Spend more time with your family and friends
  • Eat whole foods
  • Purchase organic, free-range meat
  • Purchase wild-caught fish
  • Support companies that operate in an ethical manner
  • Drink purified water
  • Move your body on a daily basis
  • Avoid prescription drugs such as NSAIDS and find natural alternatives
  • Read a book or perform some creative thinking
  • Designate time and be ‘present’ to play with your kids
  • Spend more time in nature enjoying the natural beauty and energy on offer
  • Support farms that practice sustainable agriculture

If you become more conscious of how the decisions you make on a daily basis affect your health and happiness then you can experience the link between health, and subsequently, your happiness.

Sustainable Living

Two women working in a gardenThe statistics demonstrate clearly that most people are not choosing to live ‘sustainable’ lifestyles:

  • The prevalence of overweight and obese people in Australia has increased substantially:
    • 63% of Australians aged 18 and over are overweight or obese
    • 80% of people aged 45-74 are considered overweight or obese
  • It’s estimated that 138, 321 cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia in 2019 (74, 644 males and 63, 676 females)
  • Autoimmune diseases are estimated to affect 1 in 20 people and are quickly becoming one of the most important health issues
  • Cardiovascular disease affects one in six Australians and it’s estimated to kill one Australian every 12 minutes
  • It’s estimated that diabetes affects more than 4% of the Australian population (In other words almost 1 million Australians suffer from diabetes)
  • Health care expenditure grew from $50.3 billion in 1990 to $181 billion in 2016-2017
  • The total level of pharmaceutical revenue worldwide was estimated to have reached one trillion US dollars in 2015

You vote with the dollars you spend!

By spending your money with companies that are not environmentally friendly, do not practice sustainability, and that are not health conscious, you are voting for more of this.

Do you want more …

  • Farmed fish?
  • Caged eggs?
  • Toilet paper that is not made from recycled paper and exposes your delicate tissues to harmful chemicals?
  • Tampons that are made from harmful chemicals?
  • Meat from animals that were raised inhumanely, fed GMO grains or exposed to antibiotics and hormones?
  • Companies that pollute the earth?
  • GMO foods such as corn and soy or processed foods that contain GMO ingredients?
  • Products that contain harmful additives?
  • Food from farms that don’t practice sustainable farming?
  • Personal care products that contain harmful ingredients?
  • Cleaning products that contain harmful chemicals?
  • Medications to cover-up the symptoms of underlying disease and inflammation?

Diagram of green and black earthYou always have a choice!

If enough individuals make a conscious decision to choose a sustainable lifestyle then not only will entire communities benefit, but the world as a whole!

This type of decision-making nurtures the individual, is beneficial for the community, is better for the environment, nurtures our children, and is better for the future of this planet.

Organic Living

Organic living can be best described as a lifestyle that is healthy for both you and the environment.

When looking to live a sustainable and organic lifestyle it is best to take the time to establish your own core values and possibly those of your partner and children. By writing these down on paper and reviewing them throughout the year you can be clear on how you want to (consciously) live your life and ensure that your decisions on a daily basis are congruent with your value set.

This may include statements such as:

  • I always do WHAT I say I’m going to do, WHEN I say I’m going to do it.
  • I make (regular) time in my life for fun and play.
  • I am accepting and compassionate towards myself and others.
  • I practice conscious living and conscious consumption. This includes following the principles of organic and sustainable living.
  • My passion for life allows me to express courage on a daily basis.

Organic Food

Salad with green apple and walnutsWhen it comes to foods, organic produce is grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms or ionizing radiation. Animals that produce meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products are not administered antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is more nourishing for YOU and the ENVIRONMENT!

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Hippocrates

carrotA sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to, and function of, the eyes.

  • Carrots contain carotene, lycopene and other cancer preventing properties.
  • Carrots heal coughs – including whooping cough – and heals burns when the juice is directly applied.
  • Carrots, when eaten raw, increase the milk supply for nursing mothers and can strengthen the teeth of kids that eat them consistently.

Sliced tomatoA tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

  • If researchers had to pick just one food as a cancer-removing superstar, it would likely be the tomato.
  • The Harvard Medical School reviewed 72 different studies and determined that eating tomatoes consistently lowers the risk of developing cancer.
  • Tomatoes protect the prostate gland and heart, lowers cholesterol, and protects and supports the immune system.

walnutA walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

  • Walnuts conquer cholesterol, lift your mood, protect against heart disease, help to eliminate blood clots and help protect against cancer.

avocadoesAvocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.

  • Also known as the Alligator Pear
  • Avocados can raise good cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and cleanse the liver
  • And if you want fantastic looking skin on your face, avocadoes have natural oils that enhance the appearance of your skin, nails and hair

Make sure to research your suppliers thoroughly to ensure you are receiving the best produce possible and to ensure the company is adhering to organic or biodynamic farming practices. Also remember to purchase locally grown produce.

Organic living can extend well beyond simply selecting organic foods. Organic living can also include doing good deeds for the earth. By consciously choosing to make responsible choices you can ensure that we have wonderful places to live and that the earth and all it has to offer remains beautiful for generations to come.

Have you thought about starting your own organic garden? Even if you don’t have a ‘green thumb’ you can still create your own organic patch. You need very little space and many herbs, fruits, berries and vegetables are easy to grow. It is so rewarding to grow your own food and bring it straight to your dinner table.

Do you have your own composter at home? There is a wide range of composters available to suit your needs. Consider how much space you have and how much organic waste your household produces each week. Not only can you reduce the amount of waste going to landfills but you can also create amazing fertilizer for your gardens.

You can also choose to have an organic chemical-free home!

Organic cleaning: An organic lifestyle can also include the way you keep your home clean. Selecting natural or organic cleaning products such as baking soda, vinegar or borax will help to reduce your family’s exposure to harmful chemicals and reduce the impact on the environment.

Organic beauty: Selecting personal care and beauty products that are natural and chemical free is an important step to take. Organic shampoo, conditioner, soap, and moisturizers are all readily available. Pure organic coconut oil is an outstanding moisturizer and can be found at your local grocery store. The chemicals found in makeup will enter your skin and may create a toxic load within your body. Fortunately, there are many are companies on the market today creating chemical-free make-up.

Some people find the prospect of going completely organic overwhelming and too expensive. Living organically does not imply a whole scale lifestyle change. Take things slowly. Consider introducing organic products one at a time. Replace the conventional products one by one with the healthier alternatives. Work out what you can afford, based on the foods you eat most frequently. Make meat, eggs, fish, fruit, vegetables, herbs and water quality your top priority. Then move on to household cleaners and personal care products. One small step at a time can lead to a significant change over the course of a year.

Organic products can be expensive. So check out blogs and websites for DIY self-care, home-care, and cleaning products. You will save lots of money this way.

If we work together we can change the way individuals think about their own health and wellness, the way they live, the way they shop, the way they learn, and the impact they have on the environment. By starting at the grassroots level and creating a social movement we can influence the way companies operate and the quality of the products they produce, and we can influence how governments spend their money.

But it all begins with each individual person. The strongest vote you have is by spending every dollar carefully. Both governments and corporations are slaves to the ‘old mighty dollar’ and as citizens this is where our true power lies.

These concepts become especially powerful when put into context in relation to human performance.
