Am I Healthy? – This is quite a subjective question, but one that should be asked.
We should all do a regular health assessment to check and see if we are on track. This can be done in the traditional way by seeing your doctor for some blood tests, which is a good start, but blood tests don’t always pick up the subtle changes and early warning signs. Alternatively, it can be done through less conventional testing methods like Bio-Resonance scans which can effectively test for imbalances that could potentially lead to health issues.
Another way of checking our health status is to be in touch with our bodies and to notice things like unusual energy fluctuations, mood changes, appetite changes, weight fluctuations, and changes in the amount of pain we are aware of in our bodies. Our bodies often give us several warning signs before we get sick or lose our health, so it is important to pay attention to these.
Some questions we can ask ourselves include:
- How do I feel about food? Is my relationship with food healthy or not?
- Is your diet varied enough?
- How do you feel when you eat certain foods?
- How much energy do you have?
- What is your fitness level?
- How do you feel on an emotional level?
- What is your quality of sleep like?
This podcast covers the first two questions.
How do I feel about food?
We live in a time where it is very easy to have an unhealthy relationship with food. Do we eat for the sake of eating, or do we listen to our internal cues? A healthy person will stop eating when they are full. We should feel satisfied after a meal and not stuffed, and uncomfortable.
Is your diet varied?
A balanced diet is vital for good health. We cannot be healthy if we are not eating a variety of foods. There’s a saying that we should eat the rainbow. This means that our diets should include foods of every colour on the rainbow spectrum. If we’re only eating one or two colours then we are likely to be missing out on important nutrients.
