What do all these headlines have in common?  Each of these articles is on a subject that relates to your health. 

Are you aware that an estimated 85% (or more) of all disease is stress related, including most autoimmune disease:  Cancers, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis, just to name a few.

Individual stress levels have risen with the “shrinking” of our world.  Health problems have become global problems.  What affects one corner of our world, now has repercussions on the farthest reaches of this planet.  All of which means increased stress levels to the world population.  

In addition to the stress of simply living in our complex world, we use toxic cleaners because they work well and are easy to use; we use chemical fertilizers and pesticides to make our lives easier; we paint our children’s rooms with high volatile organic compound paints and spray with Lysol because these products are well-advertised and are easily obtained.  But, what do all these toxic products do to us?  What effect are they having on our health?  Have you ever considered the impact on our kids’ respiratory systems? 

The incidences of asthma, allergies, gastric disturbances, cancers, neurological problems are all on the rise.  

Toxicity from the air we breath, the water we drink, the food we eat all increase the stress our bodies have to deal with on a daily basis.

Want to reduce stress in your life?  Here are some easy ways to accomplish that:  
  1. 1.       Add massage to your health-care routine.  Set aside a few hours every month to do something good for yourself.  Taking care of yourself is important; your health is your greatest wealth, and stress is the biggest thief!
  2. 2.       Take up Yoga!  Breathing is an important factor in Yoga and it’s also a terrific way to help your body detoxify.
  3. 3.       Change to eating organic foods.  Not only is the nutritive value of organic foods much higher than the alternative food sources, they taste so much better!  Organic foods are now widely available at grocery stores.
  4. 4.       Think about healing your body from the inside out with an herbal cleansing program.
  5. 5.       Add a really good vitamin/mineral supplement to your diet.
As we age we lose flexibility (physical, mental and emotional) which equates to our bodies being less able to deal with increased demands on our bodies and nervous systems.  Keeping yourself in good balance by eating well and exercising helps maintain your overall flexibility.

It’s never too late or too early to be proactive about your health.  The many benefits of bodywork will enhance your health, help you fight the effects of aging, and make all the years you have left more pleasurable.  Call today for your appointment!
