If you are truly earnest in how to stay healthy, then there are some facts that you need to understand. Without appreciating these basic facts, you can be easily swayed into doing things that will not be in your long term interest, health wise.
First, you need to make sure you allocate both time and money just for you. Many people feel that is being selfish. Far from it. If you are doing well, in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health areas, you will be an inspiration to those around you. You will be the light that attracts.
This is particularly true for mothers. Mothers are usually the centre of the family. By that I mean when a mother is healthy in all the important areas already mentioned, the family will follow her. When she is not healthy, the family will be out of balance.
It is usually mothers who sort out the children’s health first, putting herself last. This is unhealthy for the whole family.
By allocating time, I mean that you should have time to yourself, doing things that refresh and nurture you. Sleep is very important. So is exercise. Take up something you have always wanted to do but never had the time. Push something aside that can wait, so you can have some ‘you’ time.
By allocating money, I mean that you should not expect a single consultation (I’m talking about holistic practitioners here) to make you better. If you run a car, you expect to take it in for regular services otherwise it won’t run efficiently. Your body is the same.
Most people come to see me with a long list of problems. It takes time to right them. Make sure your goal is set on your future good health. You can’t do much for anyone, let alone yourself, if you are unhealthy. Sure, you can struggle on, but you may not be too inspiring to be around!
The second aspect to understand about how to stay healthy is that your physical problems are a result of your untreated mental and emotional traumas (for want of a better word). We all have our specific way of viewing the world, normally through our past experiences. This tends to keep us trapped in the past.
The past is gone. We need to let it go and view the world through fresh eyes. The only way we can do that is with healing energy. And the best energetic healing discipline that I know of is homeopathy.
Homeopathy is gentle, far reaching, treats the whole person (or animal) and is FAST. Pain can disappear in minutes, calm can replace anxiety in minutes.
The third thing to appreciate is that chronic ailments (ie those that will be with us for life without energetic healing) creep up on us slowly. This is why it can be hard to find where they have come from. For example, the effect of unhealthy eating habits will normally take years to permeate into poor health. Your body will try every whichway to cope before finally succumbing to the lack of nutrition.
Likewise, someone who suffers with great anxiety, can struggle on through life for years, before succumbing to the inevitable physical problems, such as stomach ulcers.
You stand a far better chance of staying healthy if you get energetic support for your mental and emotional issues before they manifest into the physical. Issues such as unresolved grief, anxiety, fright, anger, lack of self confidence, worry about the future, depression, etc. We all have them to a greater or lesser extent. And they can eat away at us.
The great thing about learning how to stay healthy using homeopathy, is that after a short period (months or a year or two depending on you, your problems as well as a host of other variables) you can slow down the times you need a ‘service’. But in the early stages, you won’t find you are getting far if you don’t have regularly check ups.
Health isn’t just about an absence of physical problems. It’s about joy, fulfilment, being at peace with yourself and the world, truly feeling and being able to express. It’s about living your passion. It’s about compassion for others.
Find a homeopath you get on with and improve with, then stay for the journey!
