My Health Journey

The Breakdown

3 years ago my health was in shambles. I didn’t exercise, I didn’t eat right and I spent little time outside. I would get headaches, unstable energy, I would crash when I got home from work. I didn’t feel in tune with my own body. I had drive but no energy. I was a Ferrari with one cylinder.

I recall vividly the moment I experienced a shift in awareness, I woke up one morning, stared at my reflection in the mirror and said out loud “fuck you’re unhealthy”. That was a turning point.

I stopped eating refined sugar, I became a food detective and checked labels for additives and preservatives. These filers in our food provide little value. I had hay fever through my teens and into young adult hood. Within one month of this shift my hay fever disappeared. That was the moment I knew there was something to this whole eating thing.

Since then I have given up all animal products, and eat 80 – 90 percent raw food. I’ve never felt better in my life.

I live health through three simple key principles:

Whole Food

Definition: Food with little or no refining or processing and containing no artificial additives or preservatives; natural or organic food.

Through my own experience i feel the human body was meant for fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. Since adopting this method my body works like a well oiled machine.

Movement

Life is movement. Ever heard the saying if you don’t grow you die? Same theory applies here. I make sure I move my body at least an hour a day. My movements of choice at the moment are yoga or running. Get those muscles working, keep the flow of energy moving!

Sun

Life would not exist without the sun. It’s also one of the most healing elements we have been blessed with. When I was younger I was told I had to wear sunscreen for fear of getting sunburn. This never resonated for me. It didn’t feel right. Our skin acts as solar panels and charges our body with energy.

Implement these three elements into your life and I predict you will feel in-tune with your body, mind and soul. When you body, mind and soul are aligned you move like lightening .

Have a fantastic week!

Love,
Michael
