Where To Begin?
I'm really new to this blog thing. And to be honest, I had no idea what I was getting into. To have a blog, to promote it in order to try and help people, takes time, and if one is not consistent, it lacks impact and so the desired outcome (of helping others) fades. But holistic health is just that - holistic. It's not easy to compartmentalise health and it's far less so to try and pinpoint what people need to hear. Health isn't just about eating veggies or giving up smoking. It's not just about preventing heart attacks or trying to live with diabetes. Health, holistically, is about the way we live. It's about our mindset. It's about how we interact with other people and the pace in which we do so. It's about faith, about desire, about communication, honesty, and about love. Some people need to hear scientific facts about vitamin B absorption, others need to hear about talking honestly with their partners, or about the easier way to view living with alcoholism. I want to stress right now that I am not a doctor - yet - and I cannot diagnose illnesses nor will I tell you the 'right' way to live your life. What I can do is share with you what I myself have learned : I have spent a few years doing intensive research on my own afflictions, and I have discovered easier ways of doing things and I know what works for me; I cannot guarantee that these things will be the same for you.
I do know, however, that life CAN be better for all of us, in all ways. We are too stressed, too closed, too set in old ways that are doing us harm, and we can slowly change the way we see things and reverse old patterns of belief in order begin to live a more balanced and healthy life.
I would like to firstly share my findings, and then talk about the ways in which they may be able to help you in your life. I would like to ask that you listen with open mind and heart, and take from it that which means something to you. We don't need to agree on everything - I would prefer it if you ask questions and do some of your own research. Most importantly, I hope that - if anything - this blog makes you think about you.
