There are 7 things to pay attention to on your wellness journey – I call them the 7 Healers.

Why do some people heal so fast and others not?  

I believe it depends on your Allopathic Load and the way you administer the 7 Healers in your life.

Oh, I can hear you saying – “What the heck is that?”

Your allopathic load includes: toxins, injuries, deficiencies, and stress that your body has accumulated and endured in your lifetime.  In other words – what is the load of issues that you are asking your body to deal with and overcome?

Then there are the 7 Natural Healers – and this can determine the speed and depth of your healing journey.

The 7 natural healers are necessary to court and develop for your healthiest life.

Here they are:

1. Air

You can’t live without it for more than a few minutes.  But are you maximizing its effects with daily deep breathing?   Take a moment right now and inhale to the count of 4 – hold for the count of – exhale to the count of 4 – hold for the count of 4.  Repeat. Everything will slow down and focus.  

There are proven studies by the Menninger Foundation that just regular deep breathing introduced into your lifestyle can reverse migraines and irritable bowel among so many other things.  Deep breathing can affect every aspect of your health.   Breathe.

It is early morning as I write this — I was just outside doing my deep breathing exercises to start my day oxygenated, revived, and inspired.

2. Water

Most people don’t even know the signs of dehydration any more. When most people are thirsty they interpret it as hunger and eat something which only makes it worse.

Water is such an important natural healer that I have written several blogs on drinking water already.  The first question I ask people who are not feeling well is…”How much water are you drinking a day?”  

Half your bodyweight in ounces of water is a good place to start.

3. Sleep

Your body heals when you are sleeping!  

The best way to ensure a good night’s sleep starts first thing in the morning when you get up and get active.  Placing a high value on it,  preparing a perfect place and routine and getting in bed early enough to get 7-8 hours is necessary for good sleep.

4. Diet

The 7 Healers for Your Wellness JourneyDo you know how many serving of fruits and vegetables are recommended?

7 servings for women and 9 servings for men!  

At least 80% of your diet should be from plants. They are the real food for our bodies.  If you have deficiencies–eating enough fruits and veggies will probably eliminate them.  If you have toxicity — eat your cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower–the sulfur helps break down toxins.

And, of course, eat your Micronized Purple Rice.  You know I believe it is the most important heirloom, functional food in my diet.  

In my 40+ years in natural healing and energy medicine — I have never seen anything do so much to restore people’s health and natural well being as this.  It is the only food I know of that has everything the cells need to recharge, repair, and regenerate. It is the only food I know of that can reverse the aging process!

5. Play

Most People would label this category exercise – but play is more fun and meaningful and positive.  

What is your activity level?  How much are you playing? Your body is meant to move and be strong and active.  You know that saying … “use it or lose it?”  

I believe dancing is the best form of play for me.  It doesn’t feel like work.  It is fun, I use every muscle and joint and I get my heart rate up.  Play keeps us young.  

I ride my bike, swim, do TaiChi and QiGong which I see as a slow form of dance.  And at 67 I can still do cartwheels!   How do you play?

6. Relationships  

The 7 Healers for Your Wellness JourneyI believe that healthy relationships = healthy lives.  

Did you know that the expected lifespan of a married man is 75 and a bachelor it is 57!  Having a spouse, friends, a support system, people who you can share your heart with is a major contributing factor in your health.

7. Purpose  

This may be the most important of the 7 healers.  What is your purpose – your motivating force?  

What will you do with perfect health?  What is your reason for being … what have you come here to do?  You are absolutely unique and you came into this life with a special gift … are you using it?

If you were to score yourself on these 7 healers…where are you falling short?  What healers could you employ to speed your healing process?
