The truth is that it can be hard to live healthy. It’s hard to make healthy choices. It’s hard to live naturally in an unnatural world. In fact, it’s too easy to live unnaturally, unhealthy. You are surrounded by unhealthy choices. Your life is probably incredibly busy and it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed. Healthy choices are often less convenient than unhealthy choices. The result? People have never been sicker.
The good news is that research has clearly defined what essential elements are necessary for a human being to express optimal health. In order to experience true health, you must understand what basic ingredients, or essential elements, are absolutely necessary for your body. When you think of essential elements, think: vital. Essential elements are the basic needs of your body – an example is oxygen from the air.
There are essential elements that your body genetically needs to be healthy. Without the essential elements, your body – and your health – suffer. We use a bonfire as an analogy – in that the burning of a bonfire is a chain reaction of oxygen and fuel ignited by spark. The energy of a bonfire sustains itself as long as all three components are present (fuel = food, air = exercise, spark = life/stress management).
To keep burning bright, to be healthy you need to give your body everything it needs – fuel, air and spark – consistently over time!When any of the three diminishes, the flame begins to dim, your health suffers. To keep burning bright, to be healthy you need to give your body everything it needs – fuel, air and spark – consistently over time!
Learning the essential elements of a genetically congruent lifestyle is vital to your health. Having a true understanding of these essential elements allows these vital behaviors to take place – that is, you making the specific lifestyle choices that will allow you to regain and experience optimal health.
There are three truths to understanding the concept of a genetically congruent lifestyle that produces health:
Your body is in a state of constant repair. Think about how your body constantly strives to repair and maintain a state of balance. When you cut yourself, how often does it heal? Every time, right? And this is the same for every person, in fact every living thing, regardless of age. Our bodies are in a constant state of breakdown and repair. In fact, over 50,000 of your cells have died and been replaced as you’ve read this sentence.
