A Holistic Health Approach And Natural Cures
you desire better health? Do you have a 'healthy idol' that you
secretly envy? Can you picture an image of the 'healthier you' that
you would like to be? The quest for
well-being, which includes good health, is a 'life long journey' not merely
a destination. The
best way to improve your health is to learn as much as you can about the
factors that affect your body, your health and well-being; and what you can
do about those factors. This is a key principle of holistic health

you were little so that you would grow up to be big and strong and
the father of modern medicine, was quoted to say:“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and
exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest
way to health”.
inventor Tomas Edison stated that:
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine
but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and
in the cause and prevention of disease”.

mother, Hippocrates and Thomas Edison all had a common belief, that good
nutrition is an important part of well-being. Many words describe
well-being. Many factors contribute

Understanding the Whole
Person Well-being Equation - A Holistic Health Concept
A properly functioning body, in a state of homeostasis (balance) on all
levels, is considered a healthy body. From the time you were conceived
you were exposed to or affected by elements (including stressors) capable of harming you and
interfering with the natural processes and needs of your body on all
levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The processes and
the communication required to maintain normal function are necessary to
maintain balance, prevent illness and to feel well. Whether the cause of the interference
is unhealthy diet, nutrient deficiencies, lack of proper rest, chronic
stress, injury, microbes, environmental factors, inadequate nurture or
psychological trauma; it can lead to damage or compromised cell, organ
and system function leading to imbalance on the physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual level. In extreme cases your body's normal
defaults are altered (e.g. hormone profile, enzyme profile, blood
profile) and your body accepts the new defaults as normal.
balance is often the root of all well-being issues.
To promote and maintain whole person well-being you must understand
all factors with the potential to impact your health. Issues
involving one part of your being can directly or indirectly
influence the others. The Health by Design holistic health approach addresses all aspects of well-being. This
multi-faceted strategy eliminates
body/mind pollution and rejuvenates
the body/mind to restore balance and health.
first source for a cure for what ails you is often the medicine or
supplement cabinet. These strategies are necessary therapeutically at
times. The body has many amazing abilities and an internal pharmacy, both of
which are often misunderstood and under used. Hippocrates, the father of
medicine refers to them as 'the doctor within'. Your body can and
should be expected to provide the natural cures for many of your symptoms
and health challenges without resorting to the contents of your medicine
cabinet as a first stop.
My recovery through multiple
debilitating health challenges provided me with many insights. I soon
realised that I could duplicate the 'symptom free' status I had achieved by
having my clients follow the strategies that worked for me. In 2007 I started to write down the basics
of my holistic health protocol, focusing on natural cures, with the intention of writing a‘guide
– how to book’for
my clients. I had so much information from my research and client results
‘that worked’. It was impossible to
constantly simply relay all this information to clients during visits - and
overwhelming for them. My

general public, because he knew it could help a lot of people; so I
published my book, titled THE

November of 2012. I knew he was right; if I knew a way for people to become
healthy – I had to share it. The research information and holistic health approaches allowed me to restore my health and
I was able to see the same 'symptom free' status in clients who followed my
WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION book is written in easy to follow steps with references for those who want a
more in depth understanding. It is in essence 'a collection of natural cures
in a book' for much of what ails you. The self-help strategies provide
natural cures through mind/body healing, neuromuscular biofeedback,
visualization, rejuvenation, herbs, nutrition, goal setting and changing
limiting beliefs into surpassing beliefs - a holistic health methodology.

years in my practice as a holistic wellness practitioner, I have always been
asked ‘Have you ever treated ___________ (symptom/condition)?”
My answer is always the same; “I do not treat a condition or a symptom”. The
holistic health approach that I use addresses and supports the whole body and whole
person. This sometimes frustrates clients at first. Understandably
symptomatic relief is required to be able to function and cope. Wrapping
your brain around the holistic health approach may require a
paradigm shift. You may have torewrite
what is possible about recovery and how health is restored. What you believe will determine how far your brain and
body will take your healing - just like the athlete who achieves more
because he believes 'more is possible'. Those who can
accept this new way of thinking and follow my protocol are always pleasantly
surprised at how they start to feel some improvement almost immediately, and
renewed health as they continue with my regime. The 'symptom free status' I
achieved was duplicated by clients who followed my protocol. You can read some of my
client comments by clickinghere.

these questions, then attending a well-being coaching drop in

Each session will start with a
