I doubt there are many of us that have not wished we could slow life down at times. It would seem that most of us are living lives like the proverbial hamster on the wheel, going round and round, faster and faster never quite sure of how to get off or stop it. The problem is that our lifestyle stresses are depleting us of vital nutrients and reserves.
This is like a bank account. If you are making regular withdrawals but not depositing much money eventually you will go bankrupt and so it is with our bodies. We are often very slowly depleting our reserves until eventually our bodies can no longer adapt and we are diagnosed with a disease of some sort. This is totally preventable and is where Nutritional Balancing excels. We always work with the person and their stresses and life challenges because that is where the true key to health lies.
To balance this body chemistry though requires time. In many cases, vital minerals have been replaced in the body tissues with toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, aluminium and others. The process of corrective healing and rebuilding of body chemistry may require many months to even years depending on your condition at the beginning of the program.
A healthy lifestyle will significantly enhance the speed at which your body chemistry will return to a balanced state. An unhealthy lifestyle will definitely slow progress. In fact an extremely healthful lifestyle is the most basic healing modality in Nutritional Balancing science.
Some of the more important elements of lifestyle are:
The single most important aspect of balancing the lifestyle is resting more. Rest and sleep are critical activities. They are times for regeneration, healing and development of the mind and body.
Sleep at least 8 or more hours every single day. If you require an extra hour to fall asleep, then go to bed an hour earlier to be sure you sleep at least 8 full hours. Many people have a "sleep deficit. This means even more sleep is needed for a while until the body rests enough.
Go to bed each day ideally between 8 and 9pm. The hours before midnight are much more restful for most people. The natural sleep cycle is from sundown to sunup, so going to bed very early and rising early are often helpful for one's health. Napping is excellent and often necessary while on a nutritional balancing program.
While healing, expect to be more tired at times. The body may be restoring an organ or gland, perhaps, or making some other shift in the body. If possible, anticipate and look forward to these times of fatigue as they indicate healing in progress.
Perform some type of gentle physical activity every day. Strenuous exercise is not necessary or recommended at this time. Light exercise such as walking, cycling, swimming, dancing, yoga, stretching or gardening, are excellent forms of exercise. Preferably, exercise out of doors. Don't push any exercise to exhaustion.
Think of healing or repairing a body part as requiring energy. In a very real sense you need to conserve your energy so it can be spent on fixing the body parts that need to be fixed. As the amount of energy you can product in a day is somewhat limited you don't want to be spending too much of it on exercise. Of course exercise is good, but too much at the wrong time can slow down your progress.
Adults should drink 3 or more litres of spring or distilled water daily. This can speed progress more than any other single factor besides enough rest and sleep and a very healthful diet.
Do not drink water with meals. It dilutes the digestive juices. Wait at least an hour after meals to drink water and stop drinking 10 minutes before eating your meal. A simple way to drink more water is to have several glasses in the morning upon arising.
A philosopher long ago once said that all of mankind's problems stem from the inability to sit quietly in a room. To be at peace with oneself is an admirable goal and meditation can help to quiet the mind and speed up deep healing. This does not mean you need to spend hours a day reflecting on life's great mysteries or purpose but it does mean learning to quiet your mind and focus on grounding and centering. Meditation has been studied intensively and there are many health benefits to be gained from this ancient practice.
