Do You Consider Yourself To Be Healthy – Part 2

We would all love to be able to enjoy the benefits of having optimal health. It’s not really in question is it – it’s a fact.

Surely we all aim to:-

  • Have an abundance of energy all the time
  • be able to look younger than our years
  • be able to perform mentally, as when we were younger
  • be able to react as quickly as when we were young
  • have resilience to infections, even when most others get “the bug”
  • be able to enjoy quality sleep, and wake up feeling refreshed – oh what joy!



There is no “magic bullet” to achieving optimal health. There are things we need to do and not to do (at least to stop doing).

We need to stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol (well, maybe the odd glass of red wine is OK), stop any excessive lifestyle choices like eating fast foods and processed foods which contain lots of fats, sugars and preservatives, drinking sodas, taking drugs.

What we need to do is a longer list which I’ll continue in Part 3.


Do You Consider Yourself To Be Healthy? – Part 1

Because they don’t exhibit any particular symptoms of disease many people think they are healthy when in fact they are merely “surviving”. Are you living a life with optimal energy and health? In reality , over time, you may be “running down” your body by not properly replenishing it with the required nutrients.

How closely do you listen to your body? Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • Frequent headaches
  • Constant tiredness
  • General loss of energy and vitality
  • Insomnia, or inability to obtain quality sleep
  • Lack of enthusiasm for life, a “can’t be bothered” attitude
  • Poor memory and concentration
  • Lowered resistance to infections
  • Irregular bowel movements
  • Sagging and pigmented skin

These are some of the subtle symptoms that your body is not running at optimal performance.
