The Omega Factor

What did you Eat Today

My health classes, guest speaking commitments, church activities and certainly through every day life experiences affords me the opportunity to speak to many people about their own personal pursuit of reclaiming their health and preventing disease. One of the things I observe in my conversations with people about the subject of health is that often the person becomes consumed with giving up unhealthy foods and yet fails to introduce nutrition to their body. Abstaining from unhealthy food is of highest importance. One cannot reclaim their health or prevent disease as long as they continue to consume dead food void of nutrition. However, as good as removing the unhealthy foods from your daily menu may be, introducing nutritious, healthy and living foods is equally important. I have many friends who call to tell me that they have stop consuming soda, fried foods, fast foods, excessive caffeine, processed foods like candy bars and pastries yet they still are fatigued or they haven’t seen the progress I have experienced. As I interview them for more information I find one common thread between them. They stopped doing all the wrong things or at least some but they never have quite accomplished introducing the right things Click here for the full article.

Give Yourself the Gift of Health

What is the one gift that you can give to yourself this Christmas that will also give to others? The answer is simple; your health. What ever happens to you also happens to those you love and those who love you. Your health or lack of health is experienced in one way or another by those in the sphere of your life. The gift of my health is the greatest gift I can give to my husband, children and grand children. Imagine for a moment the drama and trauma our family endured when my sister, mother and I were diagnosed with cancer in a span of two years time. For each individual that is diagnosed or living with a health condition that disrupts their life there are parents, children, siblings, friends, congregations and long distant families who are affected by the drama and trauma of one persons unfortunate health crisis. When I reclaimed my health from twelve years of chronic illness that culminated with breast cancer I also reclaimed my life and my family reclaimed rest in their souls from watching me suffer.

Becoming a Critical Thinker

Becoming a critical health thinker is one of the number one things I attribute to reclaiming my health.
