We can run through some of these quickly enough,
since each has occurred in your life a number of times.
Before we do so, let's remember that reality teaches us that this is not that tall of an order. For reasons that most of us never bother looking at, you can bet that eight of ten people have never enjoyed sustained bouts of contentment or happy fulfillment, and also haven't hit bottom either. For these eight of ten people, true health is pretty well well inconceivable. Mechanically and physically speaking, they enjoy little access to the high-powered and virtually instaneous effects of the natural healing systems built into the human system; YOUR human system. AND YET… it may only take the conscious
intention to get well, with an understanding that healing begins from within.
For the body to return to a place of harmony and balance, and in order for genuine healing to occur, a dramatic life shift may be needed, precipitated by simple shifts in awareness and lifestyle.
Once you have made the decision, however, it doesn’t mean that you have to get there alone. Assistance is available from holistic practitioners who use modalities that provide the necessary support and education, and who can create an atmosphere in which healing can occur. Your part, when it comes to your health, includes finding a zest for life, practicing good nutrition and exercising properly – three vibrant aspects to good health.
When we invest a few minutes following the concept of vibrational healing to its center, we must acknowledge that if health manifests on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
- then the healing process must also include those components. This is true of the thoughts we think and the food we eat.
Everything in our lives plays a multi-dimensional role
...although the extent may not be fully recognized. Of the components, diet is probably the most undervalued, and is often
seen as only being one-dimensional. Diet should be seen far more than as just a means to satisfy hunger: good nutrition is a critical key to good health. “Critical” is a strong word, and there is not a single human
being on earth who doesn’t benefit from giving this a fair minute of
gain energy for our bodies by eating food that has energy in it. Go interview several thousand champions, billionaires, masters, millionaires, and you'll find that the healthiest amongst them understand and practice this astonishingly powerful shortcut.
Phytonutrients found in plants and other foods provide sustenance that, until the last decade or so, we were not aware of. Now we know, for example, that genistein,
found in soy products, is helpful in supplying a form of good estrogen, and that women who need estrogen and use soy regularly in their diets have less osteoporosis and milder menopausal systems.
Many other nutrients found in foods promote all bodily functions:
Healthy eye function,
Normalized blood pressure,
to name a few
that are of instant interest to your every day. When we boost these factors
quickly, we enjoy the fruits thereof almost instantaneously. These are the specific shortcuts of masters, millionaires, champions, and billionaires. Which end of the horse is it better to get it from?
While all plants used for food
will contribute some level of phytonutrients to the diet, organically-grown,
whole, unprocessed foods provide the highest nutritional value and vibrational
or life-giving support. Filtered
drinking water and steamed foods (rather than those foods which are subjected
to a microwave, which hugely detracts from the value of the food being cooked),
also contribute by not adding toxins or changing the molecular structure of the
It’s worth noting that too many bottled waters sold in America contain considerably more dangerous
contents than the typical American tap water, including, but not limited to, animal feces and worse. Be clear about this: test after test after test have all proven conclusively that standard
bottled water is NOT healthier or less dangerous than almost all of the tap
water sources in the United States.
Unless you’re buying filtered water, you’re smart to save your
money and have a bit more faith in your tap water.
Gary Zukav in his book Seat of the
Soul, says of vibrational nutrition, “When it becomes necessary… for the
physical, emotional body of a person to heal, a dramatic shift in nutrition is
often required wherein a person must release every one of his or her eating
habits and take on the habits of eating certain foods that are much higher in
These would be whole live foods
such as vegetables eaten raw, or prepared simply with low heat or steam. It may not be easy to change but our
willingness to change our eating habits provides the momentum for new,
healthier habits to form.
HEALING AND EXERCISE
Even the best protocol of
nutrition and homeopathy is not complete without a sound program of strength
training and cardiovascular exercise.
Exercise reduces stress and promotes healing – just don’t overdo
it!! A fitness trainer or medical practitioner you trust, whether he or she is naturopathic or allopathic, is likely to have programs designed for your specific requirements.
Truth is, you can do as little as 60 seconds of intense exercise each day
and enjoy enormous cardiovascular strength.
That's right. One minute per day, insists Dr. Cohen
As with everything great in life, as with all of the greatest shortcuts used by masters, millionaires, champions and billionaires, there is a catch. In fact, this shortcut is so powerful it's got TWO catches associated with it:
That one minute must be filled with a gradually increased effort of high level.
That one minute must be observed 365 days per year.
No "if's," "ands," or "maybe's." -- Every day means every day.
Miss a day and you lose sufficient momentum (refer to Newton's Law of Inertia) whereby no less than triple the normal amount would have to be done on the day following a missed day in order to regain the bulk of circadian rythm that accrues so synergistically from daily repetition.
SIXTY SECONDS. You CAN do it, you know, and you'll be utterly thrilled and satisfied when you do it consistently, because the results are that profound, pronounced, and prompt.
Gil Greiner, BodyScan practitioner and fitness trainer, knows a great deal about strength training. Gil suggests that the average person work with weights four times a week for 20-minute periods. Ideally, Gil recommends that each body part be worked twice a week, with approximately six sets of 8 to 10 repetitions per body part.
For some people, that's just too complicated and structured. That's why we tap the one-minute shortcut that is one-conditionally guaranteed to produce phenomenal results quickly and measurably. The shortcut means sixty highly focused seconds of your proving that there is excellence inside of you. Talk less, do more. To quote the great thespian, James Earl Jones, quoted by Howard Stern so many times,
Shut up Shut UP Shut up!"
cardiovascular exercise, fitness trainers and health practitioners alike advise
workouts three to four times a week for 20 to 40 minutes with frequent outdoor
exercise such as hiking or biking, or walking, being sure not to exceed your
recommended exercise heart rate during any period of the exercise.
If weight loss is desired, other factors must be considered: metabolic rate,
set point (the place we get “locked into: based on metabolism and age – often
referred to erroneously as a comfort zone – as well as your personal level of
athleticism and body-to-fat ratio. Lifestyle
changes are always involved, so it is best to consult a health care
practitioner, rather than engaging in fads or crash diets.
A wellness program can be both fun and effective.
You already know that anything we enjoy doing – we tend to do
with excellence, as you have repeatedly proven throughout your life thus far.
In his book, The Heart’s Code, psychoneuroimmunologist Dr. Paul Pearsall says,
“While many of us have responded by working out regularly or eating more
low-fat foods, too many of us have turned obsessive about fitness and health. Trying to avoid dying rather than to enjoy
living, we use strict eating and exercise regiments that take all the pleasure
out of eating and all the fun out of physical fitness. We might make our attempts at healthy living
more effective if we stopped just trying to avoid a heart attack and starting
putting more heart – shared joy and less guilt --- into those things we do to
protect our health.”
It should also be considered that Newton’s Third Law of Physics has not yet been shown to fail: even once. As you surely known, “Every action in this universe carries an equal and opposite
obsess about our weight-loss or weight-maintenance program, it’s smart to
remember that, however far to left of a position we swing the pendulums of our
actions, that’s just how far we’ll swing to the right of that position when we
do enter what we might call the “compensation phase.”
Again and again we see people starving themselves or overdoing the exercise
routines in order to lose weight, and when the pendulum swings back, they end
up binge eating, often putting on even more weight than they lost. The more balance you inject into your
activities, the more balance those activities will produce in your health, physically and otherwise.
to laugh, to be with friends, to be open to love in our lives is often the best
medicine. Many times we put off the
joys of life, and do not recognize that true happiness is not a destination,
but a resting point during our journey.
