From diet and lifestyle change, to energy healing, we can walk with and advise you on your journey on the wellness spectrum. Meeting your spiritual needs is integral to your well being should be practiced in a way that is fulfilling to you. Daily practices such as Prayer, Meditation, Qigong, Tai chi and Yoga are among the best ways to find peace and fulfilment. Communing with nature on a daily basis, sunlight exposure, grounding by being barefooted outdoors in soil as frequently as possible are also ways to nourish your mind and body. If you cannot get outside much, do some visual imagery, your body really doesn't know the difference. Practice belly breathing several times daily, even if you have to schedule 2 minute sessions! According to the Heart Math Institute, the heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body's organs. The heart's electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. This field, measured in the form of an electrocardiogram (ECG), can be detected anywhere on the surface of the body. Furthermore, the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 100 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain and can be detected up to 3 feet away from the body, in all directions, using SQUID-based magnetometers. Prompted by their findings that the timing between pulses of the heart’s magnetic field is modulated by different emotional states, they have performed several studies that show the magnetic signals generated by the heart have the capacity to affect individuals around us. Therefore, if you send feelings of love and positivity, it can be contagious! Identify your feelings, try to address them in the best way you how, and if necessary, ask for help. Our mental diet is also very important to our well being. We should strive to pay attention to the components of our mental diet as much as the physical diet. Our mental health is of utmost importance, and there are many lifestyle modifications which can make it optimum! Start with ensuring good sleep, movement and being more positive. *** There are however those people who need additional help, and we encourage them to reach out to someone they trust, or a healthcare professional. Be well!
