When you are working hard and under pressure and have to be on your game all the time and don’t see anything but the tunnel in front of you, it’s hard to pay attention to yourself so that you can stay healthy.
And if you don’t feel great when you’re in turbo gear, it’s hard to slow down and assess what is going on so you can alleviate the symptoms.
But what if you just took a second to ask yourself, Why is it hard? Maybe it’s because paying attention to yourself will take up too much time that you can’t imagine you have. Maybe it’s because you are afraid of what you may find out. Maybe it’s because you don’t really know where to start so doing nothing is easier. Maybe it’s because you don’t know what is wrong, and the not-so-good feeling is now so familiar that it’s normal.
But any symptoms of stress or illness are indications of a systemic imbalance. And the only way to address systemic imbalances is to take a look at the body – not only the outside – but the all-important inside.
We don’t share your info with anyone.
How do you do that? Doesn’t that take a CAT scan, or blood tests, a colonoscopy, an fMRI, X-rays…?
Not necessarily. The body is a complex integration of systems that work synergistically to keep you alive. There are many: the digestive system, the circulatory system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, themusculo-skeletal system, among others. They are all related and functionally interdependent at the cellular level. A problem in one system could easily affect another. An imbalance in one will likely tip the balance in another.
So what does it mean for the body to be functioning smoothly, efficiently, and at therefore high performance levels? A well-oiled machine comes to mind as an analogy, but the body is much more complex and subtle than any machine.
When all systems are working well, you are full of energy, high on life. You are likely also fulfilled in your work, comfortable in your skin, thinking more about how to progress and improve than worrying about what is going wrong.
When you are truly healthy and fully engaged in what you are doing—whatever your business—you may experience what is known as the state of flow. In the state of flow, you are so tuned in to what you are doing in any given moment that time seems to suspend. Being in flow is a reflection of physical, mental and psycho-spiritual health.
Sound like a dream or something you can only imagine?
The good news is that you can get there if you want to. At the end of the day it’s a question of choice, or choices.Your choices. About the food you eat, the amount of sleep you get, your balance of energy input (food calories!) and energy output, physical capabilities, mental awareness, level of emotional intelligence, and your motivations and intentions.In short, how conscious you choose to be. And, as you deepen your consciousness about how everything you do affects your body and your thoughts, you can begin to gain true control over your life. And that can lead you to the state of flow.
As a beingwho is “in flow,”you naturally radiate energy and joy. Things that may bother other people don’t affect you in a negative way because you are balanced and healthy from the inside out.
Good Health Starts with A Healthy Core
“Good health” is a medicalassessment, notan empirical observation. Someone can look great to you but not be really healthy. Jim Fixx,the father of running for fitness, certainly looked as though he was in great physical shape, but he was not heart healthy andtragically died of a massive heart attack in 1984 while running.
By contrast, it’s hard to find someone in great health who doesn’t also look healthy. The difference between looking healthy and actually being healthy is determined by the functions of the internal systems in the body: the digestive system, the circulatory system, the endocrine system, the immune system.
If your heart, your digestive system, your hormonal system, etc. are working well and are in balance, you will look healthy. As within, so without.
This is a core tenet in rejuvenation medicine, a relatively new approach to health, rejuvenation, and healing. Rejuvenation medicine looks at the body from the core outward to achieve a state of good health. The core of your body is your digestive system that starts in the mouth and ends with what is excreted. What you intake in the way of nutrients and fluids, how your body processes/digests them (or not), and whether your bodyabsorbs everything it needs in the way of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, all determine the health of the digestive system. The key organs of digestion are the small and large intestines that coil in the center of the body – in the body’s core.
Taking care of the core puts the digestive system in the primary role in healing any problem. Over 10 million people in the United States are hospitalized every year for gastrointestinal problems. Furthermore, digestion as a system is often overlooked when trying to improve health and wellness.Some of these problems stem from the foods and fluids we eat versus what the biochemical make-up of the body is equipped to digest and absorb.
