Who doesn’t want to be healthy? I’ve been fascinated with health ever since I can remember. My grandmother’s best friend was bedridden with rheumatoid arthritis since she was in her early thirties. My own mother had chronic mental and physical illnesses (some would call it hypochondria). Seeing these people suffer set me on my path as a healer.
In my family, it was not an easy thing to be interested in good health. Believe it or not, being interested in health opened me to ridicule. Adele Davis, a pioneer in health food community, was just beginning to write books like, “Let’s Eat Right to Keep Fit”. My father called her a “health food nut” and downed another piece of rare roast beef, two martinis, French fries and a Caesar salad, chased with a chain of PallMalls
My grandparents lived past 95 in excellent health. My parents died at 58 and 60. They cut more than 35 years off those wonderful genes with their lifestyle.
These are principles I advocate for a lifetime of good health.
1.It’s your health. 2.Your physical health and your mental health are same thing. 3.Be yourself.
Let me explain each one with some examples.
#1 It’s your health.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is your health. It’s not doctor’s health or government’s health. It’s your health and it’s your responsibility to keep yourself healthy.
The Greeks had a wonderful saying about this, “After 30, every man is his own doctor.”
If, by time you’re 30, you don’t understand your own body and what makes it work, there is no power on earth that can save you from yourself.
•If there are some things that run in your family you’d like to change, learn about DNA reprogramming and healing with The Sunhealer at www.sunhealer.com
•Jesus is one of many great healers through ages. The first question Jesus asked a sick person was, “Do you want to be healed?” Ask yourself this question. Listen to your answer.
•Food is preventive medicine or slow poison. Please learn about your own body; take time to educate yourself about nutrition; and avoid white sugar and white flour as if your life depended on it.
•Know your stress points. When you’re under stress, what’s first thing in your body to “go”? Is it your stomach, headaches, your back? From now on, this will be your flagship. Your body knows before you do, it’s time to make a change.
#2 Your physical health and your mental health are same thing.
This principle is nifty for self healing because you can come at a problem either through mind or through body.
•If you’re feeling depressed, you can take Yoga and by putting your body into positions of self confidence and life force energy, your spirits will lift.
•If your stomach is tied up in knots all time and you have chronic anxiety, you can raise in your consciousness idea of self acceptance and concept that you are safe and wanted in world and these symptoms will disappear.
•You can make changes in physical world, such as leaving an abusive spouse and your mental and physical health will improve.
•The easiest and fundamental connection between mind (mental health) and body (physical health) is breath. When we breath consciously, no negative emotion can be present. Simple but profound, this is one of great secrets of meditation.
#3 Be yourself.
Trying to be something you’re not is life-threatening. Most people will interpret statement “trying to be something you’re not” negatively. What we mean is, trying to be a different type of person than you naturally are.
