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:
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.
It is necessary to drink pure clean water to maintain health. Do you know the first sign of dehydration? Grumpiness!
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.

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.

Do 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!

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?
I 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.
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?
Here are 2 questions that can make the difference … answer them consciously.
This was very helpful and interesting. I have been told by several healers , 2 physical therapist and even a stranger that saw me sing a couple of times..you’re not breathing. I have been in chronic pain 10 years And I want to breathe..I feel the difference it makes inside me..it’s just the breath holding is a response to high pain. Thank you again for posting this..because looking at each element helped to think of tweaking a few others. Peace.
So many, many people do not breathe! It was the major thing I taught people to do in my yoga classes. Practice breathing by sitting or standing straight, place one hand on your stomach and one on your chest and take a deep slow breath. If you are truly breathing deeply and correctly–only the hand on your belly should rise. Practice sitting and breathing until that feel natural and easy. You can breathe your pain away when you are good at it. <3
I struggle getting off caffeine, pop, as specific. I have started walking but have limited income as far as doing anything extra to spend any money or buy specifics types of healthier foods. Could use any advice but been really struggling. So just want to feel better and still working on the water thing. Thanks.
The more you eat fruits and veggies and protein and fats the less likely you will be craving sugars and caffeine. Stuff yourself with real food and water. It is great you are walking. Say no to sugar and flour. Your cells are starving–that is why they are crying for the stimulants of caffeine and pop.

I think we all need to play a little more! Looking forward to talking with you and helping you get started on the purple rice too! Blessings for your health <3
I’M a very bad over thinker and I have a tremendous amount of stress on me I do not drink enough water I do not sleep well at night I did not take care of myself by exercising and this is because I am a people-pleaser i overthink things and I stress a lot I’m always thinking of everyone else in my life and pushing me to the back but I know no other way so reading this has helped me to look at a few things that I can do different thank you for your help
Kelly-thanks for your note. I am glad my blog made you think about options. Just taking a few minutes to sit and breathe deeply and watch your breath can do wonders to slow you down. Think about what it takes to please yourself. You are the most important person on your list to please.
If you are not eating my micronized purple rice yet — know that it can fuel your brain so it begins functioning on higher levels. Most people claim it calms them down and clears their thinking.

+I’m working on drinking more water.
+I’ve joined Planet Fitness, so I’ve added some exercise to my days.
+I’m working on eliminating some stress factors in my marriage
-I don’t get enough sleep. I stay up too late watching tv, and wake up 3-4x each night w hot flashes.
-I eat to late. My husband like to eat at 8:30 – 9, so I’ve been following suit.
-I’ve procrastinated for years on writing the book I KNOW I’M TO WRITE.
Making this list is a great start on focusing on what needs to be done to jumpstart your wellness journey. Focus daily on how to integrate the 7 healers into your day and you will be amazed at how much more you accomplish.
What is your book about?
What is keeping you from writing?
What would happen if you devoted the first half hour of each day–just to writing down your thought and feelings?
What I need to do more of is Breathe, more vegetables and play.
I just did the breathing exercises you recommend and I could feel a difference. Thank you for doing this blog.
Great–breathing is amazing–I had yoga book from the early 1900’s with 100 different breathing techniques for everything from creating energy to creating focus to calming the mind. Every breath was different. I was amazed–a breath was a cure for just about everything. Blessings for your health. <3
1. Eat more clean foods
2. Move more
1. I eat too many prepackaged foods.
2. I sit at a desk all day, every day.

Yvonne–half of your comments are about food! A simple answer here is the micronized purple rice which is the most important thing I have discovered in my 40+ years in natural healing and energy medicine! It can fuel your cells and nourish your body so that they can recharge, repair and regenerate! I have been eating it for 2 years and feel like I did 30 years ago. Every condition I had has been reversed. Check it out. http://www.karespurplericeproducts.com
