Pillars of Health

Today’s world offers numerous ways to live healthy.  With so many options, it’s easy to become overwhelmed.

Here in the states healthcare is changing rapidly.  Currently, Americans invest thirty-million dollars each year in alternative health care, reaching outside of conventional medicine for solutions.

Here at the Cooking Coach, we are dedicated to empowering balanced health and living.  Personally, my best results come from listening to my body, educating myself on what aligns with my deepest knowing (again listening to my body and intuition) and following through with choices that create the most peace, ease and wellness in every area of my life, and for the planet.

One simple tool we can all apply in our daily lives is the Four Pillars of Health.

The pillars are made up of four basis areas of life–nutritionexercisemindfulnesssleep–that need to be cultivated and lived in balanced for ultimate health to take place.  Finding balance in all these areas can be a real challenge, yet when we are dedicated to a path of empowered health, we can relax into the perfection of imperfection.

There is no one right way to create health.

Nutrition (vs. Nourishment)
Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food ~Hippocrates
Nutrition has never been more simple and more complicated: grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo, Vegan.  Which way is best for our bodies?
Wellness is not stagnant, it is a creative on-going dance we participate in.  The food we eat, the groceries we buy, and the reverence we have for the cultivation of such food influences how our bodies receive it.  A healthy relationship with food is primary to our well-being.
