In this issue we will focus on the 4 areas that have a direct impact on your health.

The 4 Basics of
Good Health

So you've decided it's time to "get healthy". Congratulations, you've made a great decision. If you've started wading through the sea of information on better health, you might find it a little confusing, I know I did.

In a recent class I took, Steven Horne, an expert in natural health, explained that basically 4 areas of your life are responsible for your current health condition. If you can start to make healthy choices in these four areas, you will be able to improve your health.

  • Nutritional Deficiencies-
  • The body needs vitamins and minerals in specific amounts to function properly. You are either getting them or you're not. Most people now realize that our foods can no longer adequately supply what our bodies need. So if you are not supplementing your body with the vital nutrients it needs, your body is not functioning as it should.

  • Toxin Exposure-
  • We are exposed to more chemicals and toxins today, than at any other time in our history. These are literally poisons to the body and they are found in our foods, prescription drugs, cleaning products and in the environment. The body was designed to handle toxins in small amounts. Which is why so many toxins are approved as "safe". We must try to limit our exposure as the cumulative effects can be quite dangerous. Learn to identify and limit the toxins in your life.

  • Stress-
  • Emotional and mental stress is a fact of life. Everybody stresses over something, finances, jobs, marriages, children, relationship, etc. Studies have proven there is a direct correlation between stress and disease. The body can only handle so much. We must learn to effectively manage our stress so it doesn't negatively impact our health.

  • Physical Trauma-
  • Physical damage to the body can't always be controlled. People will suffer cuts, broken bones, bites, stings, frostbite etc. However, when you do experience these types of "mechanical damage", make sure to do what's necessary so further damage or future problems don't arise.

    If your body is negatively affected in any of those four areas, your body will let you know by developing some type of symptom, ailment or disease. But the body is always regenerating itself, so it's not too late to improve your health by working in these areas. Don't get overwhelmed by trying to tackle them all at once, take it a step at a time.
