What is Optimal Natural Health?

Optimal natural health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.

Optimal health can only be achieved through natural sources giving a sense of well-being, full of health and vitality.

You will experience improved physical health and mental health. Increased energy with consistent high energy levels and increased performance, also being emotionally balanced with a sharp mind.

How many of you can honestly say you feel totally healthy, without aches and pains or feeling unwell? 

A few years ago this was me, I felt pain in my entire body, chronic tiredness, nagging headaches, recurring infections and absolutely no energy. How many of you can relate to this?

Achieving Optimal Natural Health

How to achieve optimal health naturally

There is no single way of achieving optimal natural health but its a series of steps that you need to go through and address them all. 

  • Nutrition
  • Physical Activity
  • Supplements
  • Recognize Stress
  • Toxins
  • Sleep

To achieve optimal natural health each of these areas needs to be addressed but you don't have to do them all in one go, be kind to yourself and give yourself time.

Nutrition

Good nutrition will feed your body giving it all the nutrients it requires. Take a look at my healthy nutrition guide for help. You cannot feed your body poor nutrition and expect it to be at its best.

Your vital organs require certain nutrients to function properly and if they don't get those essential nutrients your organs stop working at their best which affects your health.

Physical Activity

Exercise is important for health but it doesn't have to be a daily vigorous exercise routine. Gentle exercise of some form that you enjoy most days is just as beneficial to your overall health.

I love gardening and this is usually how I get my exercise. What do you enjoy doing as a physical activity that you could do most days?

Supplements

Ideally we should get all the nutrients we need from the foods we eat but diets are so poor we don't have adequate nutrients from our diet to maintain health, let alone optimal natural health.

The choice is yours but I would recommend taking a good quality supplement in the form of a multivitamin and mineral to ensure you get enough nutrients.

Recognize Stress

Chronic stress can make you ill. Its the kind of stress that's with you when you wake up until you go to sleep and can stop you from sleeping.

Its the kind of stress that goes with modern day living, family responsibilities, work pressures, financial worries, quarrels with your partner. The type of stress that has no end to it no matter how hard you try - this is chronic stress

Once you recognize that you are affected by chronic stress find a way of dealing with stress so you can get it under control. For inspiration and natural remedies for stress take a look at my page on dealing with stress.

When your stress hormones are working, that's adrenaline and cortisol, they keep you in a state of 'fight or flight' and when this happens your immune system is not working as it should.

Toxins

Eating organic foods can minimise some pesticides from your diet and using non processed foods can eliminate some chemicals from food and its packaging. Toxins are harmful and toxic to your body.

But you also need to be mindful of environmental toxins that can impact your health and put extra stress on your organs.

  • living in a big town or city
  • travelling for up to an hour in traffic
  • your water supply may have fluoride add to it
  • cleaning products in the home
  • personal hygiene products

Using a water filter can filter your tap water and using natural house cleaning products and natural personal hygiene product can eliminate harmful chemicals. 

Sleep

Sleep is an essential part of optimal health, it has a role to play in keeping you healthy, that's why we sleep!

Why you need to sleep:

  • it repairs damaged cells
  • it boost your immune system
  • it recharges your heart and cardiovascular system

But sleep also helps you to rest, relax and unwind, ready for the next day!


Wishing you vibrant health!
