Learning how to improve your health naturally may give you immeasurably more improved quality of life. And it’s probably the quality of life that most people want, rather than the quantity, or length of life.
If you have good quality of life, you can think clearly, have good energy and so motivation, enjoy good company, don’t suffer particularly and, perhaps best of all, don’t see life through a drugged haze.
Here are some suggestions which will cost you little, but have the potential to make significant changes on the quality of your life.
- Make sure your diet is rich in quality raw foods, which are living foods, full of enzymes, easy to digest and are quickly converted to available energy. By comparison, cooked and processed food is ‘dead’.
- Drink when you’re thirsty. Drink mainly filtered water. Mild de-hydration can be the cause of many ailments, including high blood pressure. Avoid excess coffee (a diuretic so will increase your dehydration) and soft drinks (which increase your body acidity).
- The sun is essential to all life. Ensure you are exposed to it without sun screen. Without sun, you can easily suffer with vitamin D deficiency.
- Look upon pain as a sign your body, or some part of your body needs attention. Pain is your friend, not your enemy. It alerts you to something that you may not otherwise realise. Avoiding the pain with pain killers detaches your mind from your body.
- Use holistic medicines, in particular homeopathy, as your health modality, as these work by improving your immune system. Drugs work by depressing your immune system.
- See something beautiful or wondrous every day. It may be the colour of a flower, the flight of an insect, the gentle breeze in a tree, a bird’s song, a child’s giggle, a shop assistant’s care and attention, the smile of your partner. Stop and enjoy the moment. Savour it. Then look for it in other areas.
- Learn something new every week. This not only enriches your life with more information, but it keeps your learning skills honed and your brain eager for more. This can be one of the fastest ways of countering depression.
- Learn to spend time only with those who enrich your life. Either avoid those who drain your energy, or learn to switch off, to disengage, in their presence. This will prevent them ‘stealing’ your energy. Soon, they will leave you alone and move on to others less well armoured.
- Take regular (daily) time to unwind, to de-stress, to relax. This can be simply a few precious seconds of meditation several times a day, or an hour in the part. Just make sure it’s regular. Learn to put your mind in neutral.
- Learn to trust your intuition, that feeling which often comes out of the blue, but will always alert you to trouble and is always on your side. Learning to trust this little used ability can take time, but it is much more valuable than ten PhD’s.
Once you realise that your body has a natural ability to heal you, when it is supplied with the right ingredients, you’ll never look upon illness in the same negative light again.
