The Seven Pillars of Wellness
Approximately 17 cents out of every dollar is spent on healthcare (sickness care) and it’s growing every day. The statistics on the needs for health care are outrageous!
40% of western society is now considered overweight. And 40% of those are considered obese. Why is this so when we have the best food available?
It’s because we have been lulled into a false sense of security by the major food suppliers telling us we need to eat their packaged food. These foods are devoid of nourishment and provide what is called “empty calories” – foods with no nutritional value.
Read through your history books. Influenza and other simple ailments have killed more people than all the wars put together.
The medical fraternity have long been predicting a “pandemic” (global plague) like no other ever seen on the planet. The Black Plague will seem like a cough compared to it. And it’s because the average person’s immune system is not ready to cope with the attack.Do you want to be protected from this potential plague or become a statistic?
Every degenerative disease condition is on the rise!
95% of all people in westernised countries will die from one of 3 major chronic diseases – Cancer, Heart Disease & Diabetes.
Iatrogenesis: The #3 cause of death in the western world.
What is it? Death caused by Medical Treatment or Advice.
If you die BECAUSE of your medical practitioner then they almost never admit it was their fault because of unnecessary surgery, drug overdose or complications brought on by legally prescribed drugs. (eg Michael Jackson…)
And these alarming statistics are on the rise.
Over 100,00 people per year die BECAUSE of visiting their doctor or hospital. And that statistic does not include the number of people whose life suffers but do not die…
Would YOU like to subject yourself to that?
What Impacts Wellness?
We have developed what we call “The 7 Pillars of Wellness” Positively address all seven and you are well on the way to perfect health.
Each pillar can be divided down into sections, but here is a quick summary.
1 – Energy
Matter is just solid energy!
Electro-Magnetic Radiation (EMR) is all around us. Man-made technologies (such as mobile phones, computers, microwave ovens) are constantly spitting out electromagnetic frequencies that are damaging our health.
Energy Medicine is now defined as any technology that provides protection from damaging radiation, restores our personal energy back to optimal, monitors our energy status, and applies therapy to treat current ailments. We need to look after our energy in order to keep us well.
And then there’s the subtle energies. The ones that science is still learning about. They are so minute that science has not developed detection methods. But they are there and they can get confused by our modern lifestyle.
Energy is the foundation of all life! If your energy levels are low or our of harmony then all other processes will be compromised.
2 – Water
We are electric beings and water is require to make our bodies conduct electricity. Electricity is required to run our brain, to send communication from our brain to our nerves, between our organs, to stimulate cell production, to do a whole host of autonomic processes. Things we are usually not even aware of. Without minerals in the water the water will not conduct. That’s why we need a full complement of minerals (micronutrients) from our food. To make the electrolytes. Water also needs to be slightly alkaline in order to provide a buffer so our body and most of all our blood has the ability to stay at a constant 7.35pH.
3 – Toxicity
Heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, pollution all impact our body’s ability to repair and regenerate. We cannot escape from them. Toxins are everywhere. We need to avoid them and remove whatever toxins we have acquired over our lifetime and continue to acquire daily.
4 – Stress
Physical, financial, emotional, nutritional stresses deplete our systems and reduce our ability to repair cellular damage. Stress is actually a unique form of toxicity when it has a negative impact on our bodies. Nutrients are used up as much as 100 times faster when we are stressed. It’s no wonder we get sick when we are stressed. Our immune system is getting used up faster than we can put the nutrients in. That’s what we need to increase our intake of nutrients when we are stressed
5 – Nutrition
Starvation Type A is lack of food macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates & fats). This is what occurs in the starving African nations. They just don’t get enough calories to move their bodies. This is very rare in western society. Starvation Type B, however is seen in vast quantities in western society. It is caused by a lack of micronutrients (glyconutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, phytonutrients etc) We are eating, overprocessed, denatured or even toxic foods. We get enough calories (the logs) but not enough micronutrients to “start the fire” (the spark and twigs)
Genetics – This is what you are born with. It has been said that you cannot change your genetics. Well that’s just not so. Learn more about “epigenetics” and you will learn that your genes “express” themselves through micronutrients on their surface. Genes are blocked and altered by toxins too. It has recently been shown that many genetic errors CAN be corrected by increasing micronutrient uptake and energy balancing to correct errors in gene expression.
6 – Exercise & Activity
Exercise & activity is good stress.
Without exercise and activity our skeletal and muscular systems break down so we must MOVE every day. Astronauts can lose up to 30% of their bone density in 6 months in outer space, just through reduced exercise.
We must walk at least 5 kilometres EVERY day to pump toxins from our bodies and lift heavy things in order to trigger our cells to rebuild themselves.
7 – Rest & Sleep
We all know what it feels like to miss a night’s sleep. The next day we are lethargic, irritable and lack focus. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture.
Continued lack of rest, poor or interrupted sleep can lead to to system degradation and eventual failure which is synonymous with lack of health and the onset of disease.
All animals require rest and sleep for recovery and repair. An elite athlete cannot just keep exercising. If they did then their bodies would eventually fail.
Good exercise is maximised when you interleave it with periods of rest. Muscles actually require rest between periods of stress to allow them the opportunity to rebuild.
