Contrary to all of the misconceptions surrounding holistic health, I don't prescribe ginkgo biloba and medicinal marijuana. In fact, I don’t prescribe anything at all. This is the beauty of holistic health.
I don’t ring a gong over your head while singing kumbaya either, although who couldn't benefit from that?
Holistic health involves viewing the body as a whole, including mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Each of these affects one another, making up your entire experience and leading you up to this point of your current condition of health.
If you have high blood sugar, for example, what stressors are being placed upon your body throughout a given day and over time? Maybe you eat cakes and cookies and/or processed carbohydrates, but what is driving you to do so? The root of the problem could be metabolic in nature, but maybe we should look deeper.
What do your sleeping patterns look like? Are you sleeping soundly between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.? Are you consuming enough magnesium and potassium? Do you know what food sources contain these nutrients? Are you wondering what these nutrients even have to do with high blood sugar? What about your eating patterns? Do you skip breakfast? How often do you feel the sunshine hit your body? Are you happy? Do you enjoy life and have fulfilling relationships with others and yourself? How often do you speak or think negatively? Do you have a constant babble or to-do list in your head? Do you ever feel fully rested or relaxed? How much do you move your body? Do you sit for most of the day? How many breaths do you take within 60 seconds? Is it more than 8? Are you hyperventilating and don’t even know it? Are these questions making you hyperventilate?
Sure, I can look at your pancreas, liver, and hormone levels, and they would tell me exactly what they are telling you: YOU NEED TO CHANGE. These aspects are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your health.
If you’re looking for a quick fix, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the one for you. I’ll also admit that some people probably refer to my business as, “Holy Sh*t Kinection”. I'm not going to lie to you: It’s hard work. But if you’re looking for an overall better quality of life, an entire lifestyle change is required.
My job is to assist you in creating the health that you desire through real food, as well as behavior and lifestyle modifications. I will teach you how to keep up with the demands you are placing upon your body, how to listen to your body, and how to respond accordingly. This can help reverse the aging process, repair the metabolism, and regenerate your health and well-being.
I should give you some warnings: If you’re looking for someone to tell you that it’s okay to drink a bottle of wine or whiskey every night before bed, I’m not the one for you. If you want someone to tell you that your current lifestyle and destructive behaviors are conducive to creating the health that you desire, and the answer is that you have a pharmaceutical drug deficiency, I’m not the one for you. If you’re looking for someone to not see through your exterior into the depths of your interior, I’m not the one for you. If you’re looking for someone to spend 5 minutes with you and not know your entire background and current lifestyle, I’m not the one for you. If you’re looking for someone who will give you a pill, a cleanse, a detox, and a quick fix, I’m not the one for you. If you’re looking for someone to do the work for you, I’m not the one for you. I cannot help you more than you are willing to help yourself.
I can, however, promise you that this journey may be frustrating, but will be extremely rewarding. If you’re up for the challenge, I am with you every step of the way and will be your biggest cheerleader. So if you’re looking for someone who will invest in you as much as you’re willing to invest in yourself, I’m your person. The fact is that YOU are in control of your health. You will no longer need to look outside of yourself for the answers that you already have within you. You will know your body better than anyone else, simply because that’s the way it was always intended to be.
