Are you healthy?

What is health?
The absence of disease.

What is disease.....diabetes, heart disease, auto-immune diseases we all know about. What about frequent illness, or you catch every cold or other bug people have. Having a hard time recovering from illness. Chronic fatigue, complications from illness, multiple allergies, chronic headaches, negative attitude, sleep disturbances, gastro-intestinal issues(digestion and elimination), ADD, ADHD, memory loss, depression, anxiety, bi-polar, etc....
These are just a few of the diseases and/or symptoms of disease that are signs of not being healthy.
So how do you become free of disease. First, you have to WANT to do it. I teach students every day and educate them about the positive and negative aspects of health, and disease as well as the benefits to exercise and real nutrition. However, if they don’t want to change, I can’t make them. So if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you desire change now is the time to do that.

My first suggestion is the write everything down in a food journal. It will let you see what you are eating and problems associated with it (like you have GI issues after eating a sandwich etc.) Then you decide what you are going to do about it. If you are in my area I will be happy to help you decipher what is good or bad and how to go from there. Even if you are not in my area (NW Florida) I can still help!

Remember that true health is the absence of disease.  Are you healthy?
