What does health mean to you? (Suzanne)

To me health means freedom!

For without health happiness is harder to attain. To stay healthy I find myself making conscious & unconscious decisions on almost everything I do in life but particularly in regards to food and lifestyle. Staying healthy takes work for most people but it doesn’t have to be too hard. I have learned to love leading a healthy lifestyle (although I am not a saint by any means) but it has been a process, a journey definitely, something that didn’t happen over night.

There are of course no guarantees in life that you can avoid the serious diseases such as cancer but I try on a daily basis to push that risk further away if at all possible. It is important to listen to your body and pay attention to signs and symptoms, indications of ‘dis-ease’.

I have my ‘maintenance tools’ and my ‘go to tools’. My ‘maintenance tools’ consist of good diet, vitamins, minerals, efas (fish oils), daily exercise and some me time. My ‘go to tools’ consist of various homeopathic/herbal remedies and other therapies that might be needed including 1st and foremost Bio-feedback and other therapies such as Chiropractic, Massage, Manual lymphatic drainage and Acupuncture if appropriate.

Whenever I start to feel out of sorts I do also reflect on ‘why I’m feeling this way?’ and ‘what I might have to learn from the experience?’ There is not always an obvious answer but sometimes there is and in those cases I try to understand the relevant lesson so as not to incur repeats! Sometimes it’s common sense and sometimes I need to dig deeper.

All in all when I’m feeling healthy everything else tends to fall into place so that I feel happier and more optimistic about life in general.

So for me Health = Freedom!
Freedom to live my life to the full, freedom to make choices rather than have them made for me.
