Hi my friend!
I hope this email finds you healthy and well.
Over the last few decades, we have seen a drastic increase in rates of chronic disease.
Over 1 in 3 people are getting cancer.
Around 50% of the population have some form of cardiovascular disease.
More than half of the population have at least one chronic disease and over a quarter of the population have at least two.
What is the cause of this?
Most of us in the field of health and wellness are aware of the environmental toxicity, hijacked food systems, overuse of chemicals, pesticides, and antibiotics, electromagnetic overstimulation, and simply chronic stress in our modern times.
Today I would like to share with you one of the biggest roadblocks in us reversing these statistics.
This is the addiction to complexity.
Our modern culture is addicted to complexity. We are always looking for the next scientific breakthrough, miracle medical cure, and next high tech gadget to overstimulate and distract ourselves with.
We have lost connection to the power of simplicity. We have lost reverence to the importance of the basics.
What are the basics?
Eating organic food
Drinking quality water
Getting to bed by 10pm
Moving our body regularly
Spending time off screens and out in nature
Breathing from our belly
Simply connecting with loved ones without a device involved
We have created the illusion that all complex problems need complex solutions. But in my career as a holistic health practitioner, I can confidently say that it is dangerous to put the cart before the horse.
I have had clients with severe back and nerve pain who were on 6 different medications get better in one visit by cleaning up their diet and having regular bowel movements.
I have had clients with severe anxiety who were told they need anti-depressants improve their condition by simply going a week without devices.
I have seen client’s neck pain go away by simply teaching them how to breathe from their belly.
A complex problem can have a very simple solution. (Unfortunately, our ego mind does not want to see that).
This is why I began studying with Paul Chek and The CHEK Institute. With the 4 doctors (diet, quiet, movement, and happiness) and the 6 foundation principles (nutrition, hydration, sleep, breathing, thinking, and movement), we set a solid foundation for healing to happen!
The body/mind wants to be healthy. We simply have to give it the resources.
I recently sat down with Eugene Trufkin who hosts the Eugene Trufkin Radio Podcast. In this conversation, we explored all of this and much more!
Eugene is also a CHEK Practitioner. It was great catching up with him and diving deep into these topics of health and healing.
Lots of love,
