7 KEYS TO WELLNESS
Everything in our environment interacts with our genes to create health or disease. This is the revolutionary concept of epigenetics. Our diets, nutritional status, air, water, how much we exercise, trauma, psychosocial factors, and exposure to environmental toxins and radiation can all influence our genes and our health. Creating a healthy environment inside and out is our first step to balancing the system
When your immune system shifts out of balance, inflammation can run rampant — causing a chronic, smoldering fire inside your body that contributes to disease and weight gain. Managing inflammation is a key aspect to achieving Ultra Wellness.
Most Americans are living out of harmony with our biological rhythms. The reason is this: two kinds of small molecules, which we depend on to keep us in balance, are running haywire. They are hormones and neurotransmitters, and uncovering reasons for imbalances in these areas is essential.
Optimal gut health has become a prominent focus in 21st century health. The links between chronic illness and an imbalanced microbiome keep growing. Our gut is at the core of our health. Understanding why it breaks down and how to repair it becomes of the utmost importance.
Detoxification is the science of how our bodies get rid of waste. If waste builds up, we get sick. The key becomes figuring out how to enhance our body’s capacity to detoxify and get rid of waste while minimizing our exposure to toxins.
Energy – how we make it, why we lose it, and how to create more of it. Understanding how to optimize our mitochondria (energy factories) and how to reduce oxidative stress (which results from toxic insults, infections, allergens, stress, and just eating too much poor-quality food) is an often overlooked yet vital component to becoming a thriving human.
The body and the mind are a single, dynamic bi-directional system. What you do to one has enormous impact on the other. What you do to your body you do to your brain. Understanding the importance of this relationship is the final key to Ultra Wellness.
