3 Dimensions of Health

3 Dimensions of Health

There are 2 paths. The path I am looking to show you is one that embodies all of you, values your health and success. The path I have to show you knows growth, success, health and vision are matched and elevated in the heart, mind and body through your thoughts, feelings, emotions and presence.

Your True Spirit of Health

It’s interesting that you may look for a diagnosis to prove your feelings, emotions and health. A label that gives you permission to feel the way you feel. I always go back to the story of one of the greatest athletes, Wilma Rudolph. Dr’s told 

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

These are actually exciting times for health, fitness and lifestyle. While the relevance and importance of fitness and clean nutrition is at the forefront for health, this has been a trait and essential for high performance leaders. By high performance leaders I am referring those who take responsibility, value integrity and show up in passion, presence, growth and grounded. High Performance leaders often have a background in athletics/sports at an elite level, high rank in the military,

Let me tell you why. Because to be of a high-level discipline, concentration, focus, structure and emotional intelligence is required. Forging ahead is not for the faint of heart, won’t tolerate victim mentality and accepts surrender as a rite of passage with tenacity, fortitude and dignity.

This means the fun of just trying or getting in your steps or somedays you feel like it and somedays you don’t is not to the next level of health. What it is, is building your foundation- habits, discipline, structure and commitment.

There is seriousness in your next level of health as you take responsibility.

You decide you know your worth, your abilities and you choose your goals, and faith over maybes and fears.

Responsible is response able. Your next level of health will look at your Mitochondria. Your next level of health will look at autophagy. And your next level of health will look at a balance of hormones.

We go deep, rooted, grounded and vision focused with vigor. Afterall health is synonymous with vitality.

This in itself shifts your mindset and recognition of food, fitness and lifestyle. Vitality comes through choices, finding presence and peace. Being focused on food, eating, when to exercise again is foundational. Gaining autonomy in nutrition and fitness keeps you pointing your radar to new heights. Next Level.

What I love to teach is the expectation of concentration. Concentration keeps you in the moment and open. This flow state brings more awareness, heightened feeling and senses and a place of personal power.

The power of this process and experience is no negotiating with yourself. You do. You are aware in the body out of the mind and in the spirit.

Are you ready to take your health to the Next Level? Do you want to accelerate your current foundational fitness and nutrition or are you ready to begin a foundational program?

Healthy Habits that Boost Happiness.

Healthy Habits that Boost Happiness.

Habits are the choices we make on a daily basis. Having a sense of accountability towards yourself with a vision and goal helps you identify what is important to you and where your priorities are.

The idea of making new or healthy choice can be daunting and overwhelming. Old behaviors, past programming, limiting beliefs, past hurts and failures makes it uncomfortable to step up to it, facing your emotions.

Actually this is just as much about your self esteem, having a solid plan and the right kind of positive guidance and coaching.

If you know taking better care of your health is important to you the habits you build upon are essential. Non-negotiable to hold you powerful in the changes.

Half of your happiness depends on conscious choices. Over time with consistency these practical choices become habits. You gain a greater sense of self for sticking to it.

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your endocrine system is made up of glands found throughout the body. These glands, which produce hormones, send hormones into the bloodstream or into the fluid around cells, and receptors to be distributed among organs and tissues, and “programmed” to respond to the hormones.

Essentially the endocrine system performs many roles that your body is dependent on, such as producing hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood – and along with other functions. The endocrine system physically consists of:

  • Pituitary gland
  • Thyroid gland
  • Parathyroid glands
  • Adrenal glands
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries (females)
  • Testicles (males)

An unhealthy, or unsupported endocrine system result in an assortment of unwanted conditions such as hindered growth and development during puberty, difficulties getting pregnant, problems managing stress, putting on weight easily, having weakened bones or being low on energy because an excess amount of sugar remains in your bloodstream instead of where it should be – moving into cells to be used for energy.

Here are some common signs your endocrine system is not hitting on all cylinders:

  • Insomnia and other sleep issues
  • Dull or puffy skin
  • Depression
  • Low energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Weight gain
  • Heightened fear
  • Anger
  • ADHD

  • Glutamine Our body’s most plentiful amino acid, modest amounts can increase human growth hormone a lot.
