The importance of a healthy Nutritional lifestyle
"There is no right or wrong lifestyle or diet;
there are only right or wrong choices to be made based on our individual
genetic codes". Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo
Is your food enhancing or polluting your health?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Candida and yeast overgrowth, cravings,
bloating, skin troubles, fatigue, feeling depressed and so on...Just remember that stress can be as poisonous and toxic as the everyday ingestion of processed
food. It depletes us so much of the vital minerals and vitamins that our
bowel requires to detoxify properly. It also takes a lot of work from our
cells to go through the detoxification process. Our modern society gives us a much faster pace
of life than our body is able to cope with. We work longer hours
with less time to prepare healthy meals, therefore often rely on take
away food or eat in our work environment. It puts pressure on our digestive system, not allowing it to function at its optimal.
sounds very familiar as we hear it so often; it all became part of our
lifestyle. I like to call it an adaptation stage. This is what one might
be used to throughout life. Refined and processed foods are detrimental to our health but yet, is
being sold in our Supermarkets. We as a society, are aware of their
potential dangers and yet, still consume them which clearly are mostly
toxic to our body, well-being and become health impairment. Researches
are somehow mostly inconclusive, as to suggest the public that there is
not enough evidence, to show that certain additives and chemicals put in
the food chain, is considered as a risk factor for disease. But do I
really want to wait until it is proven so, or do I prefer educating
myself and keep away from potential harmful chemicals leading to
I was born near a small town in the West of France on the border of the
Atlantic Ocean. My Dad grown his own fruits and vegetables and my Mum
loved experimenting with new recipes for our enjoyment! Came the day
when I flew the nest, forgetting about putting the essential and
beneficial lifestyle habits into my everyday life, and embarked on a junk
food consumption routine. None of which favoured my health at the time
but instead, sent me to a dark place with a body crying our for help,
after accumulative years of excesses. These
were the days when combined bad lifestyle habits eventually got too
much for my own good. Looking back now, I can see how simple it was to
get into the fast pace of life causing a huge amount of stress to my body, leading me to use food in a completely non
helpful but rather destructive way!
Stress indeed has
become one of the major factors to our affected colon, as well as
processed food and to top it all up, too much animal fats and refined
sugar. It is so important to be aware of your digestive system during a period
of stress. Stress can affect many systems of the body, and if stress
becomes long term or chronic, then damage may occur. This damage can
affect your health and well-being which in turn can make life harder in
the areas of relationships, work and play. With ever increasing
levels of stress in the world, it is essential for you to take
responsibility for your own health.
Being a holistic and integrative
therapist, I enjoy supporting my clients
through their journey towards their lifestyle changes, and along the
way, reminding them the importance of relaxation. Taking the time out in
order to give your body a chance to reset itself.
I witnessed on how powerful combining disciplines such as Aromaflexology, colonic irrigation and enemas can be in supporting a healthier living. All these methods contribute in helping
the colon to relax and clear out toxins on both emotional and physical levels.
My pursuit to a holistic lifestyle, grew ever since I realised how much I
needed to keep close to nature after all. A clean whole food intake got
my body back to where it could finally put its detoxifying, repairing
and healing mechanisms back on! A wonderful feeling that I wish everyone
could get the taste of.
