Welcome to our fourth issue of Holistic Health Magazine,
It’s struck me lately just how complicated it is to live a healthy lifestyle. If one aspect of our lives gets out of balance, then it impacts on everything else. This seems to be particularly true of women. We eat badly, feel tired and lack energy, our hormones get out of whack, we gain weight, become more susceptible to chronic lifestyle diseases, feel depressed, can’t find time for ourselves and then eat badly…it’s a cycle that we need to break, yet we’re often not taken seriously by the medical establishment. A ten minute GP appointment doesn’t lend itself to listening to a multi-faceted problem, so more often than not, we end up with a prescription that boosts serotonin or adjusts our hormones, but fails to tackle the real issues. We are not simply symptoms, we are whole beings. That’s why we’ve chosen to focus on women’s health in this issue.
Sometimes, we just need to accept that our journey towards better health is going to have the odd setback, but that we will eventually find our breakthrough point. The point where we recognise that we need to take responsibility for our own health if we are to live the lives we want and remain healthy for decades to come. In my own case, my breakthrough point came when I recently took a 23&Me genetic test. This included an ancestry report and screening for any genetic predisposition toward a whole raft of diseases and health problems known to be related to our genetic makeup. Not only did I discover I have roughly a great-grandparent’s worth of unexpected western European DNA, but also that I may be 40% more likely to develop type II diabetes as I age.
I don’t want to become diabetic and I don’t want to spend time in a doctor’s surgery, so I’m taking action now by making lifestyle changes that will help me in the future. Thanks to intermittent fasting and being more thoughtful about what I choose to eat, I’m about a third of the way to my healthy weight goal. I’ve had a massive wardrobe clear out and have dug out my vibration plate and started to exercise and I’m trying to make room in my life for creativity, learning new things to stretch my mind, mental well-being and self-care. It doesn’t always go to plan. I can gain three pounds by merely glancing at a grain of pilau rice, but I know that every little change I make is another step on my own journey to being healthier.
At Holistic Health, we want everybody to be able to make the right choices for their own health whether they are eighteen or eighty. We’re here to help you find your own breakthrough point and live your best, naturally healthy, life.
Alison and everyone at Holistic Health Magazine.
