Have You Ever Made Health-Related Resolutions?


Happy women exercising.

Many of us make health-related resolutions, such as to lose weight, stop smoking or join the neighborhood health club. While it is common to set high goals, experts say that setting smaller goals could do more for our health.


"Small steps are achievable and are easier to fit into your daily routine," says James O. Hill, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. "They are less overwhelming than a big, sudden change."


Here are 13 to try:


  1. Keep an eye on your weight and work on making sure you are not gaining extra lbs. Even if you gain just a pound or two every year, the extra weight adds up quickly.

  2. Lose just 5 to 10 percent of your current weight. The health benefits are huge-lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides.

  3. Downsize. The smaller the bag, bottle, bowl, and plate the less you will eat. A 8 1/2" plate is perfect.

  4. Keep track of your eating. Write down what you eat over the next couple of days and look for problem spots. Often, just writing things down can help you eat less.

  5. Our body sets its own ‘biological clock’ ( circadian rhythm) according to the pattern of daylight where we live. This helps us to get sleep at night naturally and stay alert during the day. Listen to your biological clock. Skip the late night eating and go to bed by 9PM and get up at 5-6AM.

  6. Take time to learn how to block other areas of life by learning the techniques, such as meditation and prayer. Peace of mind is a great way to reduce the stresses of day-to-day life and helps you to become calm and relaxed and this will help you to lose weight.

  7. Take more small steps. Use a pedometer to count your daily steps; then add 2,000, the equivalent of one extra mile. Keep adding steps, 1,000 to 2,000 each week or so, until you take 10,000 steps on most days.

  8. Shorten your eating window. Shift your breakfast and dinner by 30 minutes until you can get down to a 6 hour eating window. Try aiming for noon-6PM or 10-4PM.

  9. Skip the snacks. Snacking keeps your glucose on a roller coaster. Give your body a break and stick to 2-3 meals a day.

  10. Drink more clean water. Add in some Selina Naturally Celtic Sea Salt to bring your minerals back on range and curb hunger.

  11. Eat breakfast. Breakfast eaters tend to weigh less and have better diets overall. For a filling and nutrition-packed breakfast, organic eggs, sugar free bacon with fresh berries and tea or coffee.

  12. Have at least one green salad every day. Eating a salad (cold pressed olive oil dressing) is filling and may help you eat less during the meal. It also counts toward your five daily cups of vegetables and fruits.

  13. Eat healthy fats to feel full like: avocados, coconut cream, shredded coconut, coconut oil, olives, extra virgin olive oil, nuts (walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts), seeds (sunflower, pumpkin seeds), nut and seed butters, ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, wild caught fish (salmon, tuna), anchovies, sardines dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa, whole eggs, grass-fed beef, butter and full fat dairy (heavy whipping cream, whole milk cheese).


Each new day is a new opportunity to improve yourself. Take it and make the most of it.


Feel like you have something bigger going on in your life?

My signature health assessment is a deep dive into your current health. I listen closely to what you're experiencing and help to triangulate what is happening within your body systems.


For your initial consultation please fill out the online intake form, and submit back the day before your appointment. Also, a link will be provided to upload 3 facial photos to.


You can expect your initial visit to last approximately 2 hours, since building a strong relationship is an important component of effective care. You can expect an in-depth discussion about your health history, diet, sleep, exercise, stress levels, environmental factors and use of alcohol/drugs/tobacco. You can expect to have a urinalysis to check 10 biomarkers, a ZYTO Bioscan, facial analysis and other possible evaluation procedures, which may include: physical observation, MRT (Muscle Response Testing), and/or iridology reading. From this, I will look for root causes of any dis-ease you may be having, formulate a plan to best meet your needs, & work toward your overall wellness.


Bioenergetic drops, supplements, essential oils, Bach Flower Remedies, as well as life style changes may be recommended as part of the wellness plan. The need &/or frequency of return visits will be determined individually.


Then an customized plan is uniquely tailored to you, your lifestyle and your goals. This consultation is not meant to diagnose, prescribe for, or cure any medical disease, rather it is a way for you to maximize your wellness capability & enable your body to heal itself.



To Your thriving Health,

Gwen
