“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live“ - Jim Rohn
We are all born with a set of genes, which define our individual characteristics, but the food we eat, the life we lead and how we experience the World, fundamentally influences the expression of these genes and therefore ultimately our health.
Our diet provides the fuel for approximately 200 trillion cells enabling an indefinite number of biochemical reactions to take place every second of our lives. Our wellbeing depends on these processes working well and symptoms arise as a result of something going wrong somewhere along the way. Hence the symptom is never the problem – only an expression of a dysfunction at a deeper level, and addressing the symptom in isolation diverts the attention from the real issue. A holistic functional approach aiming to identify and optimise metabolic and functional processes is key to effective health care.
Physical fitness and the state of our minds also play a significant role in our health and wellbeing. Science has long shown how the state of our minds can influence the function of our immune system and vice versa. Did you ever consider that your thoughts and feelings directly influence the behaviour of your cells and hence your health?
Why is your problem a problem for you? – We are all uniquely different both in terms of our biochemistry and how we experience the world. Understanding your particular circumstances and beliefs, and what might have brought you to your current state of health is vital in making appropriate recommendations to help maximise your sense of wellbeing.
