Being Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

Health Doesn't Have to Be Hard

Good morning to you!

I have had a wonderful week returning to my almost usual antics now that I have given the (fracture) boot the royal boot! You sure do appreciate being able bodied when you lose the function of a part! It reminds me to remind YOU to NEVER take your body for granted and every day - take at least one measure to consider the basic needs of giving your body nourishing food, hydrating fluids, mobilising movements, daily eliminations and soothing rest.  It is literally that simple!

From life after being on my butt or crutches came a sweet reconnection, actually quite a few, but more on that later...

I've chosen this topic today as a reminder to those of us who have lost ourselves in the quest for a healthy life.  To quote the highly anxious Robby the Robot in Lost In Space, "Danger Will Robinson" may well apply as a warning for those who complicate the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

If you have ever been the victim of paralysis by analysis, you will understand that overthinking a plan can be detrimental to its success.  This can't apply more to the subject of one's health.

In all the thousands of hours spent researching the ethology (starting point) of a disease and more so how to apply solutions to it, there are some basic fundamentals that I commonly find are overlooked along the way.  I guess this is where natural medicine is at its best - we are always looking for causation in our conversations with patients - which means we are constantly going from a bottom up approach in differential diagnosis.

Here are some commonly overlooked conditions which just needs a simple approach to solving its dilemma:

  1.  #Headache - not a deficiency of paracetamol - most common cause is dehydration or toxin intake.
  2.  #Backache - commonly not permanently paralysing - most commonly a combination of muscle spasms that eventually lead to bone movement which can be initially helped by a good and regular massage.
  3.  Irritability - not always a hormonal imbalance - commonly contributed to by a lack of quality sleep, not enough adequate hydration and the aftermath of toxin overload.
  4.  #Weight challenges - infrequently a frank thyroid issue - commonly thyroid imbalances come AFTER a weight challenge is experienced for some time.
  5. #Constipation - not a deficiency of laxatives - the body is crying out for fibre, water and bacterial balance from prebiotic foods and probiotic strains.
  6. #Insomnia - is not your body craving sleep medication - getting underneath the chemistry of sleep from stress and hormonal, food and glucose balances is the way back to a solid night's repose.
  7. #Sugar cravings - is not your system needing Mars Bars - its your gut bacteria or dopamine receptors asking for a little quick fix - what they actually need is commonly more basic than that!
  8. #Fatigue is not a #coffee deficiency no matter how much it feels like one - give that system good protein, magnesium, hydration and a balance of rest and activity.

Whatever your health dilemma is, try and find its common cause.  Keep it nice a simple - your sanity may well rely on it!
